On This Day: Bowles

Stan Bowles scored twice on his League debut as Manchester City beat Sheffield United 5-2 on this day (16 September) in 1967.  Three days earlier he also scored twice as the Blues defeated Leicester 4-0 in the League Cup – Bowles came on as substitute in his debut game.  Despite this tremendous start, Bowles never scored again for City and only made a total of 16 (plus 4 sub) appearances.
