The Supporters Club & Trust is delighted to have played the lead role in commissioning the creation of a magnificent, larger-than-life statue to the great John Atyeo at the Winterstoke Road entrance to Ashton Gate. It was made possible thanks to excellent collaboration with the football club and fantastic support from the fans, hundreds of whom dug deep to buy name plaques on the plinth.
In 2007 we honoured the Ashton Gate Eight by getting them all together for a 25th anniversary commemorative dinner. It was an emotional moment when all eight were clapped on to the stage to receive commemorative awards. The proceeds from the evening, which also included an exclusive commemorative programme, were used to fund a uniquely shaped plaque, which is currently being relocated from the wall outside the away end to the Supporters Bar.
We launched the inaugural Bristol City Supporters Hall of Fame. At a fantastic event hosted by Angus Scott and attended by such legends as Gerry Gow and Bob Taylor, the first 13 names were added to the Hall of Fame, in disprsed with a fun quiz between team captains Scott Murray and Louis Carey. More players have since been inducted at a Hall of Fame 2014 event.
The official launch night of the Supporters Trust in 2005 featured a parade of playing legends. The event compered by Jonathan Pearce and Angus Scott was attended by over 600 supporters.
Along the way we have run successful events to commemorate famous FA Cup wins (and losses) down the years including the 1909 FA Cup Final at Crystal Palace, against Leeds and against Liverpool. Reliving that FA Cup win at Liverpool was a collaborative event with the Football Club, raising money for the Community Trust
