Man City mourn passing of Barnes

MAN City stalwart Ken Barnes has died at the age of 81.

The wing-half joined City in 1950 and played for the club for 11 years, winning the FA Cup in 1956 and taking over the captaincy the following year. After leaving for Wrexham in 1961, he returned to City a decade later, taking on roles as coach, assistant manager and chief scout. Barnes, whose son Peter played for City and England, also oversaw the 1986 FA Youth Cup-winning team.
