  • Description

    MANCHESTER CITY, THE ENGLISH FIRST DIVISION SOCCER CHAMPIONS LAST SEASON, OVERWHELMED THE CUP FINAL WINNERS, WEST BROMWICH ALBION, 6-1 IN THE FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION CHARITY SHIELD GAME AT MANCHESTER TODAY (SATURDAY).

    MANCHESTER CITY WAS NEVER HEADED AFTER TAKING A TWO-GOAL LEAD IN THE FIRST FIVE MINUTES AGAINST A WEST BROMWICH SIDE WEAKENED BY THE LOSS OF STARS JEFF ASTLE AND BOBBY HOPE. THE MATCH WAS A PERSONAL TRIUMPH FOR CITY'S GBP30,000-STERLING RECRUIT, BOBBY OWEN. WHO CAME FROM THE SECOND DIVISION CLUB, BURY. HE MADE HIS DEBUT WITH TWO GOALS.

    MANCHESTER CITY, IN THE BLUE SHIRTS, PLAYED LIKE A FLOOD SWEEPING THROUGH WEST BROM'S WEAKENED DEFENCES. WEST BROMWICH WAS ONLY A CARICATURE OF THE TEAM THAT BEAT EVERTON FOR THE CUP AT WEMBLEY IN MAY.

    APART FROM OWEN, CITY'S OTHER GOALS WERE SCORED BY FRANCIS LEE (2) AND NEIL YOUNG. WEST BROM'S GRAHAM LOVETT, UNFORTUNATELY TAPPED ONE INTO HIS OWN GOAL TO MAKE CITY'S SCORE SIX. WEST BROM'S CONSOLIDATION GOAL WAS SCORED BY NICK KRYSWICKI.
