The Supporters Club & Trust were pleased to collaborate with & contribute to the events in the Ashton Gate Eight 40th Anniversary weekend.
As part of being a major sponsor, we organised a lot of visual content before & during the Bristol City v Middlesbrough game on Saturday 19 February 2022. This included:
- Ordering the “Eight Men Had a Dream” surfer, getting it manufactured, then launching it across the South Stand during the Ashton Gate 8 presentation. The surfer was designed by Sean Takle
- Arranging the “40 Years On, We’re Still Going Strong” banner as displayed by Section 82
- In co-operation with Patch Warner from 3 Peaps in a Podcast, we ordered the “8” mosaic cards that we arranged for supporters sat in the Dolman Stand’s central blocks to display on the 8th minute of the game
We also arranged player gifts & thank you gifts for organisers & other people/parties involved in the weekend’s events.
We also contributed to the new plaque commemorating the Ashton Gate 8 that was unveiled beside the players entrance.
We previously had a plaque unveiled back in October 2009, but this has since moved to our Supporters Bar; where the Ashton Gate 8 players/representatives paid a visit, meeting supporters & receiving yet another round of applause.
Chair of the Supporters Club & Trust, Stu Rogers says: “It was great to work alongside fellow fans, companies & club officials, especially [former Bristol City chairman] Scott Davidson and [author & Former Players Association organiser] Neil Palmer to deliver something really special”.
Everyone else we would like to thank & acknowledge has already been mentioned by the football club; via the message below from Richard Gould.
