TIGERTUBE – Pearson’s first game

Yet more reminiscent fun, courtesy of our ever expanding archive of City clips hosted by YouTube … In this clip, first shown on Look North in March 2001, we see Adam Pearson taking charge on the first matchday after he bought the club out of administration.

That game was a pleasing portent of what was to come, City beat Exeter 2-1 and went on a great run that culminated in participation in the Division Three play offs. Though promotion proved elusive that year, Pearson’s tenure was an unquestionable success, it began with City in the basement division and ended when we were an established Championship side. Our Premier League existence is just as much attributable to Pearson’s legacy as to the Duffen/Bartlett/Walker consortium that paid him £13M for the club.

    Love the comment at the end, ‘I want to be in the top division, in a 25k stadium with the best facilities’ Good on yer Adam and no mention of Europe!
