Darren
Jackson

When centre-back Darren was released by Oxford United in the summer of 1994 he was immediately snapped up by Tony Rickets. Impressed in pre-season and played in nine of the opening twelve games of the season before becoming a victim of the sides' poor start. So, when an offer from Hong Kong side Songtoa Sports was made for the 23-year old he headed for the former UK colony. Had spent nine years at the Manor Ground having signed as a schoolboy, but made only 14 appearances although he did have a further 5 games on loan at Reading. Was also in a single England Under-21 squad.

Signed from Oxford United in the 1999 close season after he was surprisingly released by the U's. Made headlines for Oxford in their FA Cup draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and showed why for three-quarters of the 1999-2000 season. However, a loss of form and confidence that coincided with City's title hopes falling away saw Elliot dropped for the final few games of the season and he was released in May 2000. On leaving City he was reported to have gone travelling but re-surfaced playing for Swindon Supermarine the following season. Elliot reappeared playing for Hellenic League side Malmesbury Victoria in January 2009.

Toby

An Evening Chronicle headline in April 1989 stated that "Manchester United trail Toby Jackson". The teenage defender had only made a single appearance for City but had attracted the attention of the Division 1 side. However, there was no dream move for Toby and after making four more outings, all in cup games, during the opening months of the 1989-90 season he made the slightly less glamorous move to Trowbridge Town.

Was surprisingly released at the end of the 1999-2000 season by Paul Bodin to join Newport County. Was a regular during his two seasons in Wales before financial problems saw him shown the exit. Returned to Twerton Park and, although never recapturing the form of his first spell, the former prison warder was always a popular member of the squad. Joined Salisbury in July 2003 when a journalism course meant he would be unavailable for the opening weeks of the season. Now a sports journalist with The Guardian.

Continued to progress through the ranks with City and was offered a first team contract in June 2003. However, he failed to earn a regular starting place and it was no surprise when he was released at the end of the season.

Steve
Jones

A revelation during the 2006-07 season, Steve switched from defence to a central midfield role and played a huge role in the club's title win. Before joining City in October 2003 his career had a certain symmetry about it as he began at Fairford Town before joining Forest Green Rovers and then Cheltenham Town. A move to Swansea City followed at which point he started to reverse his clubs returning to Cheltenham and then onto Forest Green Rovers. However, rather than completing the pattern with a switch to Fairford he choose to join former teammates Russell Milton and Steve Jenkins at Twerton Park. The Bristol-born defender started as a left back with Hellenic League Fairford and Forest Green but switched to the centre of defence when he joined then non-league side Cheltenham in August 1994. Impressed sufficiently at Whadden Road to convince Swansea City to pay £25,000 for his services in November 1995. Went onto spend six years with the Welsh side, making over 150 appearances during that time, although injury prevented him adding to this tally. Was released in the summer of 2001 to return to the Robins. Again regular injuries disrupted his progress and when a broken leg saw him miss the majority of the 2002-03 season it was no surprise that he was released by manager Bobby Gould. His return to Forest Green was a brief one and after making just 11 appearances the 33-year old made the move to City where he was soon a regular in the side and went on to made approaching 250 appearances before being released in May 2009 to join Bishop's Cleeve.
