  1. A large number of former players will be attending the Fulham game for our 125th season celebrations. I am not privy to the list unfortunately. They will be made aware that they are welcome in the Supporters Bar after the game to meet fans. I can't promise anything but I do think there will be some faces we have not seen for some time ...
  2. Hello London If you have not issued your programmes, I am very interested in acquiring them. I study City's history, am in contact with a lot of former players and write articles for the programme - bladonmike@gmail.com
  3. MIKE GIBSON & BOB TOOZE Mike Gibson, arguably City's greatest ever keeper, came to us from the Shrews in 1963 and the rest is history. Bob Tooze, then Mike's young inderstudy, joined the Shrews from us in 1968. They will be reunited after over 50 years at the FA Cup game on Saturday, when both will be guests of the Club. AFTER THE GAME, THEY WILL BE COMING ALONG TO THE SUPPORTERS BAR, ABOVE THE SPORTS BAR. EVERYONE IS WELCOME! There is an article in the programme.
  4. Gerry Sharpe (1946-2019) – an appreciation We are sad to announce the passing of former player (1963-71) Gerry Sharpe on 17th December at the age of 73. He had been settled in the USA for over 30 years. Gerry was a very fast forward with an eye for goal. Under manager Fred Ford, he made his City debut aged 18 against Carlisle at Ashton Gate on 23 October 1964. In the next ten matches he scored six goals, playing up front alongside John Atyeo and Brian Clark. Later, under manager Alan Dicks, he played increasingly at number 11, on the wing to better make use of his pace and he scored many goals by cutting in to shoot. He was coming into his prime and in the sights of many top clubs, when his career was cruelly cut short by injury. That was against Middlesbrough at Ashton Gate on 16 January 1971. Fans at that match remember the sickening crack, heard around the ground as his leg was shattered. Gerry Struggled for two years to get back into the game and played a few reserve matches but suffered a reaction each time. He could bring himself to return to Ashton Gate for many years but eventually did so as City’s Youth Coach. In the turmoil of Bob Houghton’s sacking in 1982, he acted as caretaker-manager for 19 days, during which City lost only one of their six games. Three years later Gerry began a new career in the USA, where he remarried and settled. Our thoughts are with his daughter Julie and his son Robert.

  12. Terry Bush 29 January 1943 – 30 July 2018 We were sad to learn that Terry Bush, who played for the Club throughout the 1960s, passed away on Monday 30th July 2018 after a long illness. Terry was born in Norfolk but began his footballing career as a junior at Bristol City, signing as a professional in February 1960. He went on to play his entire career at City and settled in Bristol for the rest of his life. The 1964/65 season could be considered his best, scoring 16 goals in 37 league appearances, contributing towards the team winning promotion to Division Two. He was forced to retire in 1970 with knee problems. He had played 185 games and scored 46 goals in all competitions, 162 appearances and 43 goals in the Football League. His long service was rewarded with a joint testimonial with Tony Ford on 31 July 1971. Terry had a powerful physique and scored a number of spectacular goals. He joined the City staff on retirement as assistant secretary before becoming a full-time official for the Transport and General Workers Union.
  13. Just a few of us made it to the statue and recorded the occasion. Not one to feel good about because it marked Big John's very untimely death. I'm glad we did it though. THE BOOK IS GOING AHEAD - EVERYONE WHO PLACED A NAME ON THE STATUE WILL GET THE CHANCE TO WRITE ABOUT THE PERSON WHOSE NAME IS ON THE STATUE AND ALSO ABOUT WHAT JOHN ATYEO MEANT TO THEM. THIS WILL HAPPEN AT THE START OF NEXT SEASON. WE ARE THINKING ABOUT EXPANDING THE BOOK TO ALL CITY FANS - TO GIVE US YOUR STORIES AS A CITY SUPPORTER AT ASHTON GATE. THERE ARE ALREADY SOME IN THIS THREAD. THE WORKING TITLE IS "CITY TILL I DIE - 2" BUT THAT IS UNLIKELY TO BE THE FINAL TITLE. PLEASE SEND IN YOUR STORY!
