Share this article

FANS of teams other than Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Blackburn Rovers and Manchester City who have wondered what it’s like to get their hands on the Premiership trophy will have a unique chance to do so tonight (Thursday).

For a few hours only, the trophy, won last season by Manchester City, will be appearing the Mechanics Institute.

The event, organised by Gilford Manchester City Supporters Club, starts at 8pm. It is a non-ticket event, but a ‘contribution box’ for photos will be in place with all proceeds going to Manchester City’s ‘City in the Community’ initiative, funding various projects for under-privileged areas up and down the UK.

Put on your favourite team’s shirt and bring your camera as this promises to be a truly historic occasion for the town.
