Tommy Doyle is Mike Doyle’s grandson... mike played for man city when they played proper footie and fielded up to 11 english players at a time...

In the 1970 league cup final he played in a side of 10 Englishman and a Scotsman... one of his teammates is glyn pardoe who is also young Tommy’s grandfather...

The scorers for man city that day were Doyle and pardoe .. its a funny old world
