Pardoe was renowned for his versatility.

He played every position – bar centre-back – for the Sky Blues.

And, he was the youngest City player to debut at just 15 years and 314 days.

Pardoe was a pivotal part of City’s success in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

He helped them to win Division 1 – now the Premier League – Charity Shield, the FA Cup and both the League Cup and UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1970.

He scored the winning extra time goal when City beat West Bromwich Albion in the 1970 League Cup Final.

A City club statement read: “Everyone at City is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Glyn Pardoe.

“Our thoughts and condolences go out to his friends and family at this difficult time.”
