In fact, he could see City’s former Moss Side home from his bedroom. When scout Harry Godwin gave Young the opportunity to play for City, Young did not waste any time in accepting the position. After signing with City in 1959.
he played with players such as Denis Law, Billy McAdams, Joe Hayes, and Bert Trautmann before making his debut in late November 1961. Young, then only 17 years old, made his professional debut on the road against Aston Villa, and he went on to appear in all 24 league games that season, scoring 10 goals. After playing his first complete season as a senior, he allowed 102 goals in the league, and as a result, his team was demoted.
This includes two defeats by a score of 6-1 to West Ham and a battering by Wolves of 8-1 on the opening day. It was a learning curve similar to that of City, which either made you stronger or broke you completely. Even though he scored his best goals tally yet the following season, it was even more flat at Maine Road when the fallen giants finished 11th, which was their lowest finish in 71 years. Although Young missed only five league games as City, now under George Poyser, finished a disappointing sixth, and even though he scored his best goals tally yet.
