Former Manchester City shot stopper Ken Mulhearn died


Manchester City title-winning shot stopper Ken Mulhearn has died at the age of 72.

The Liverpool born shot-stopper joined Manchester City from Stockport in 1967, helping his side to lift their second top division title.

A message on City’s official Twitter account read: “We are saddened to hear of the passing of our former goalkeeper, Ken Mulhearn, who played an important role in our 1968 league title win. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.” 

In 1971 Ken Mulhearn signed for Shrewsbury, making 379 appearances in nine year before wrapping up his career at Crewe in 1982.


Shrewsbury Town chairman Roland Wycherley added: “Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family and friends at this sad time.

“Ken was a true Shrewsbury Town legend on the pitch and was a very popular person around the club and town.

“He will be remembered fondly for his performances in a Town shirt and for being part of the side that helped the club to what is now the Championship.

“He continued to work around the club on matchday and will be greatly missed.”
