Career

He first came to the nation's attention as a member of Sunderland's 1973 FA Cup winning team. In March 1974 Tueart signed for Manchester City. Tueart was a winger and was part of the winning team in the 1976 League Cup final, memorable for him scoring with a spectacular overhead kick. In 1978, he crossed the Atlantic to join New York Cosmos, where he remained until 1980, when he re-signed for Manchester City. He finally left Manchester City as a player at the end of the 1982-83 season, following the club's relegation. On 21 September 1982, Tueart scored for Manchester City against Oldham Athletic in Jimmy Frizzell's testimonial. Tueart later became a director of the club, where he was heavily involved in the appointments of managers Joe Royle and Kevin Keegan. In July 2007, following the takeover of Manchester City by Thaksin Shinawatra, Tueart was sacked as a director,[2] ending a 33 year association as a player and director with the club. Tueart was accused of "losing dignity" in the way that he responded to his dismissal and City supporters reacted angrily to his complaint that he had only been offered complimentary tickets in the stand and not in the Directors' Box.

He made his Derry debut in their first game back in the senior football in 13 years in 1985.[3]

In a competition where more than 20,000 supporters cast their votes on the 50 golden moments as nominated on The Football League’s special 50th anniversary website, Dennis Tueart’s winning goal against Newcastle United for Manchester City in the 1976 League Cup Final was voted the greatest moment in the competition’s history.
