Tinnion Evening 800x300

Reliving that FA Cup win at Liverpool

This event, held on Thursday January 24th 2019 in the Sports Bar, marked the 25th anniversary of one of the club’s greatest ever nights.

Brian Tinnion was  joined by former teammates Mark Shail, Keith Welch, Andy Llewelyn, Rob Edwards and Martin Scott to remember the famous 1-0 FA Cup win against Liverpool in 1994. Also attending were Tony Fawthrop, the Assistant manager and Phil Tottle, the Radio Bristol commentator.

As we all know, Tins scored the 67th minute winner against Liverpool in the third Round replay on January 25th 1994. 

We relived all the action on the big screen, with memories and stories shared through a Q&A session hosted by Mark Tovey. Then the players mixed with fans for pictures and photographs.

It was good to see a good representation of other football club officials and coaching staff turn out for the event as well. We were joined by Marina Dolman, Jon Lansdown, Mark Ashton, Lee Johnson, Dean Holden, Jamie McCallister and Scott Murray.

This was a  charity event, in a partnership between the Football Club and Bristol City Supporters Club & Trust, a collaboration that worked well, with thanks to Mike Adams from the Trust and our SLO Matt Parsons.

All proceeds raised on the night will be donated to the Bristol City Community Trust. This currently stands at over £850

Kids, be our guests! Watch City for free!

As many City fans will recall, when the club initially announced the pricing structure for 2018/19 season tickets, all concessionary prices for under 12s and under 19s in certain areas of the ground were removed. Familes and groups of fans faced trying to find seats together somewhere else or staying put and coughing up full adult price for the youngsters in their group. Well, now eight fans, including six young ones, can go to games in one of those areas for free! Read More

‘Fans Funding Fans of the Future’

On 28 February, Bristol City stunned fans with an out-of-the-blue announcement of some huge increases in season ticket prices. Hardest hit were our fans of the future. For kids in the Lower Lansdown there was no longer to be any concession prices. And buying the cheapest adult ticket instead represented an increase of over 500%. Parents faced an ultimatum: pay up or move out!

Baffling Season Ticket Increases

The Supporters Club & Trust are somewhat baffled by the timing and pricing strategy for the 2018/19 season tickets. In what appears to be a concerted effort to free up arguably the best and most lucrative seats, the impact has fallen squarely on parents with children under 12 who are facing an increase in price for the child’s seat from £50 currently to £335 next season if they wish to stay where they sit at present, often with other family members and friends.

Cardiff Away – Why bother?

How to squeeze all the atmosphere and pleasure out of a local derby in one fell swoop. Well done the Heddlu! In my view, Cardiff away as a fixture is now officially dead. Already subjected to a reduced 1,481 ticket allocation, a 12.00 kick-off on a Sunday and no local train service, what else could Bristol City fans expect to make their away day go any better… ?
