Mike Summerbee was born on December 15, 1942 in Preston. In the course of a 20-year career he played for Swindon Town, Manchester City, Burnley, Blackpool and Stockport County.
He also represented England on eight occasions, scoring one goal.
In 1965 Manchester City manager Joe Mercer signed Summerbee for a fee of £35,000. In his first Manchester City season Summerbee started every single match, the only City player to do so that season.
Playing on the right wing, Summerbee was part of the celebrated trio of Bell, Lee and Summerbee that inspired Manchester City to win four trophies in three seasons from 1968-70.
Something of a practical joker, "Buzzer", as teammates nicknamed him, was also known for a fiery temperament, a trait described by team-mate Francis Lee as "retaliating first".
