Tony Book ‘Skip’ lifted more trophies as captain of Manchester City than any other player in the history of the club. He joined City in 1966, and was named Footballer of the Year after a wonderful first season in a legendary team, managed by Mercer and Alison. When he hung up his boots, Tony’s association with City was just starting. He became team coach, assistant manager, and then manager in 1974. He managed the club for six years, playing regularly in Europe as well as finishing runners-up in the 1977 League Championship. Along with his many other honours, he’s now President of the overall Supporters’ Club.
