Question for stato’s, does anyone know why City have always and continue to play in the Gloucestershire Cup instead of the Somerset Cup? With Bedminster being south of the river it would have historically been in Somerset and has never been part of Gloucestershire?

Oddly they used to play in the Somerset Premier Cup

Unless they are affiliated to Somerset as all Bristol clubs are that compete in the Somerset Senior League.

A City supporting neighbour of mine, came on for rovers and scored with one of his first touchs for rovers against us in the gloucester cup in the 80s.

He hailed from ashton, anyone name him.

He was well known as a city fan.

 Bristol is a county in its own right and has been since 1373, although large parts of what is regarded as being in Bristol is in other counties - eg Kingswood is the South Gloucestershire

I rather miss the pre season Gloucestershire Cup final between City and Rovers.  Anyone remember why it was scrapped and could it be reinstated, especially as a local derby looks very unlikely in the foreseeable future.

I remember at one point both managers agreeing it was too intense for a pre-season game and players were picking up injuries so it was agreed to scrap it

Yeah, seems to make sense.  We seem to pick up too many injuries at the best of times.

Not quite true - I was player-manager of a local team for 12 years - we were the only team in the league that had to affiliate to the Somerset FA due to our location in south Bristol. It meant we had some very long away trips in the Cup!

I have a vague memory of beating Rovers 5-0 in the '69 final - at Eastville, I believe. Each member of the forward line scored. For the young 'uns, a 'forward line' consisted of two wingers, two inside forwards, and a center forward (Skirton, Garland, Galley, Kellard, and Sharpe).

It was NEVER a pre-season thing originally, only the last few of its existence.......always the last game of the season .

I am fairly sure in 1973 on the downs it was Bristol 600 it was the only time in my life that I had a slice  of beef from an almost whole cow cooked over a wood fire.

having been born in Patchway (despite a poster disagreeing with me in the past) was South Glos.

Politicians may say where boundaries are but people know where boundaries are.

How can the ‘Night of the Tulips’ become a vague memory? 

 

Up there with the best experience following City, on and off the pitch.

We've been in the Somerset Premier Cup too. And the Anglo-Scottish. And the Anglo-Italian. And the Welsh Cup. We'll have a go at anything if there's a trophy to be had!

Don`t forget the Johnson Cup and that one we played Rangers for.

Glory hunters is what we are.

Ah -  Avon! As you’re a supporter of a team who has either played outside of Bristol or has planned to  to - eg Bath, Severnside, Cheltenham, Nailsworth I bow to your superior knowledge of local councils.
