Manchester Evening News

Ken Mulhearn, a member of Manchester City's 1968 title-winning squad, has died, aged 72.

The Liverpool-born goalkeeper was signed from Stockport County where he is a legend as cover for first-team keeper Harry Dowd.

Dowd picked up an injury two days later and Mulhearn stepped in, becoming the regular keeper for the duration of the 1967-68 season and claiming a League winner's medal for Joe Mercer's great side.

His City glory was short-lived as he was dropped the following season when coach Malcolm Allison blamed him for the Fenerbahce goal which knocked City out of the European Cup.

The emergence of Joe Corrigan that season also affected his status and in 1971 he signed for Shrewsbury, where he made 370 appearances in a nine-year stint before wrapping up his career at Crewe in 1982.

Mulhearn died peacefully in his sleep yesterday, but his legacy lives on as grandson Harry Lewis has won England under-18 caps and is currently on loan at Dundee United from Southampton.
