Club hero: Shaun Goater went on to become a legend and fan favourite at Manchester City

Shaun Goater’s journey to achieving cult-hero status at Manchester City is chronicled in a new feature on the club’s digital platform.

Feed the Goat, named after the song he was serenaded with by fans at Maine Road, provides a detailed account of the former Bermuda striker’s time at the club.

Having arrived at City in 1988 with a reputation as something of a journeyman, Goater quickly won over the fans and went on to become a prolific scorer to fire the club back to the Premier League on two separate occasions.

The league campaigns in 2001-02 and 2002-03 will be explored in detail throughout the feature. Those campaigns, in particular, saw Goater at his best, scoring 30 goals en route to returning to the Premier League, before bagging a memorable goal in a famous derby win against fierce rivals Manchester United.

Goater also went on to be handed the honour of captaining City in the final match at their former Maine Road ground as the club consolidated their position back in the Premier League.

The series features contributions from former team-mates including Richard Dunne and Kevin Horlock as well as fans, journalists and Goater himself, to help make up a definitive account of exploits at the club including many of his 103 goals, scored in 211 games between 1998 and 2003.
