Linfield FC extends sympathy to the family and friends of Glyn Pardoe, the Manchester City full back whose sad passing has been announced by the reigning Premier League champions this morning.
Glynn played in the European Cup Winners Cup games against this club almost 50 years ago in 1970.
The then holders of the trophy defeated Linfield 1-0 at Maine Rd in Manchester on September 16, 1970 and then famously 2 weeks later , 2 Billy Millen goals gave Linfield a 2-1 second leg victory, allowing City to progress on the away goals rule.
Sincere condolences to everyone at Manchester City following the sad loss of one of the big names from their past.
