City Legend George Heslop: 1940-2006

Sad news today about the death City legend George Heslop, who passed away at the weekend after a short illness. He was just 66 years old.

Our younger readers may not remember George, but he was a key member of City's team in our glory years in the mid to late 1960s during the wonderful Joe Mercer / Malcolm Allison era, and was in the Championship winning side of the '67-68 season. He also went on to win League Cup, European Cup-Winners Cup and other honours in a career that saw him turn out for City 197 times with an additional six appearances as sub.

After leaving the game, George was landlord of a few pubs, including one of my locals, the Carter's Arms in Wilmslow. He later became a social worker around the Blackpool area, where he retired just last year.

Rest in peace George, you'll always be a legend
