I thought I knew pretty much everyone who's played for City, but I recently came across a Steve Rimmer and an Alan Bailey, who played for us in a game in 1998. I'd never heard of them It seems they turned out v Mansfield at home in the Auto Windscreens trophy on Dec 8th 1998, Rimmer starting and Bailey coming on as a sub, the only time either of them played. They were in a side also "starring" Tony Vaughan, Neil Heaney and Jamie Pollock. City lost 1-2 and the crowd was 3,007. Was there ever a lower attendance for a competitive game at Maine Rd (or the Etihad)? And was there ever a lower point in City's fortunes? I'd be interested to know if any Bluemooners were at that wretched evening.
