Gary Johnson Inducted Into Hall of Fame

Former City manager Gary Johnson has been inducted into the Hall of Fame class of 2022/23, representing the 2000s.

Ahead of the Sky Bet Championship game with Wigan Athletic on Wednesday 15 February 2023, Gary was welcomed back to Ashton Gate. The evening’s events included a presentation that took place in our Supporters Bar, followed by a brief appearance on Robins TV, before watching the match in the hospitality lounge.

Speaking to Robins TV on Wednesday night, Johnson said: “I’m very honoured to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. I’ve had a great reception from the Supporters Club & Trust – and from Nigel which was nice – and I had a lump in my throat when I tried to make my speech so only managed half of it. 

“I always enjoy coming back here to Ashton Gate. I still live in Bristol, down in Portishead, so it’s a special place for me and my family. It’s nice to pop back down and remind myself of all the good times we’ve had here.”
