INJURY BLOW FOR THE BLUES
DAVID JACK WRITING IN THE MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS 28TH MAY 1970
Manchester City could face an injury crisis for the final and most important game of their Australian tour, against New South Wales in Sydney on Saturday. Winger Mike Summerbee is already ruled out of the match and now centre forward Bobby Owen and half back Mike Doyle may also be unfit. Owen and Doyle were injured in City’s 4-1 win over Northern NSW in Newcastle yesterday.
… Manchester City secretary Walter Griffiths said after yesterday’s match “This was the perfect workout for the big game on Saturday.”
