Owner Steve Lansdown and Chief Executive John Pelling gamely fielded questions in front of a festive, and at times, noisy packed bar in Crewe. The seventh such event around the country organised by the Supporters Club & Trust came with an opening reminder of how unique this situation is, setting Bristol City Football Club apart from many.
In December 2014, Ashton Gate Stadium was successfully registered by the Supporters Club & Trust as an asset of community value under the Localism Act.
Six City legends were inducted on Saturday 11th October into the Supporters Club & Trust Hall of Fame.
As you will be aware, we have for some time been raising funds for a statue to honour John Atyeo. Now we need your creative input!
As you will no doubt be aware, then City striker Sam Baldock was the leading goal scorer in League One for the 2013/14 season.
As the Football League does not award a trophy for this achievement, we thought it would be fitting to correct that omission.
Over 1,000 City fans took the time to complete the recent Supporters’ Club & Trust online poll and in doing so provided some very interesting results, which are well worth a look. Here are the headlines:
Bristol City Supporters Trust’s 30,000-strong petition for a new football stadium was hand delivered to the Bristol Council House in June 2011 to help demonstrate the level of support for the new stadium.
One of the main aims of many Supporters Trusts and one that is stated in our manifesto is “To continue to encourage wider supporter involvement in the Club from Boardroom down, including an elected supporter’s representative with voting powers on the Board of Bristol City Football Club”.
In November 2013, the recently-merged Bristol City Supporters Club & Trust issued an official manifesto, entitled ‘One Voice – Your Voice’, outlining the organisations objectives.
The Supporters Club & Trust runs both awards.
At the end of each season supporters are asked to nominate their supporter of the year and the players choose a winner, usually from a short list.
