City v Rovers 1958

Recommended Posts

Just came across this old video. Any of our older posters at this match? Interesting to see as well how packed the East End was and Ashton Gate before the Dolman stand.

Looked like the whole ground applauded and cheered goals for both sides.

Different times.

I noticed that. I assume it was due to lack of segregation, so Rovers and City supporters were mixed together without fighting each other. Different times indeed

Lots of people went to both grounds in the 50's.

I used to occasionally watch Rovers when I was at school  in the early 60s because the Eastville ground was closer to where I lived. I don’t feel ashamed, as I used to follow the Rovers tradition of getting in without paying. I just followed the masses along the river and got in through a hole in the fence at the Muller Road end.
