Dave

In total Dave spent over 16 years with City, the first 13 as a player then a further three as assistant to manager Tony Ricketts. The no-nonsense left-back was signed from Bristol Rovers in March 1980 and was soon a permanent fixture in the no.3 shirt. He was also club captain for several seasons and it was no surprise when, in March 1992, he took over as Ricketts' second in command. A knee injury had sidelined Dave for all of that season and although he played 26 games the following year he finally hung up his boots in May 1993. He continued to partner Ricketts before financial problems (ironically the reason he was appointed in the first place) forced the club to release him in June 1996. Ricketts quit shortly afterwards and they resumed their partnership at Trowbridge Town a couple of months later.

Scott
Partridge
170
78
Widely considered one of the most talented strikers to have played for City in recent times, Scott made 170 appearances for the club, scoring 78 times, during his four years with the club. A widely travelled player during his league career he played for eleven different sides, including Bristol City, Cardiff City and Torquay United, and whilst never a prolific scorer was highly rated. Dropped into non-league football with Weymouth during the 2003 close season but when he failed to earn a regular starting place joined City in January 2004. After a slow start he scored an incredible 18 goals in just 20 league games to immediately become a Twerton favourite. The goals continued to flow, including an FA Cup hat-trick in October 2004 that earned him the player of the round award, and he was the club's top scorer in 2005-06 and 2006-07. A serious neck injury picked up in February 2007 threatened his career but he battled back to fitness and was just beginning to return to first team action when personal circumstances saw City cancel his contract in March 2008. He joined Sheffield FC in July 2008 before moving onto Weston Super Mare in early 2009 when he moved back to the Bristol area.

Martin
Paul
277
115
City's second all-time record goalscorer, former Bristol Rovers forward Martin signed in November 1996 from Doncaster Rovers. Initially was not a first team regular but scored frequently when coming off the bench and when he finally secured a starting place he repaid this move spectacularly. Scored 30 goals during the 1998-99 season to top the DML scoring charts and then repeated this goal tally the following year. Unfortunately his place in City folklore was soured when he appeared to lose interest in the closing months of the 2000-01 season. It was no surprise when he headed to Newport County for £3000 and he has received a rough reception since when facing City with the Exiles or current club Chippenham Town. However, it was a surprise when he returned to City in February 2005. Never really secured a regular starting place, although he did score this 100th goal at Solihull in April, and moved onto Mangotsfield United in December. He made a brief return to Chippenham in October 2006 but went into semi-retirement at the end of the year. However, he answered a call from John Relish to provide cover at Twerton Park, which he did until December 2008, during which time he passed Paul Randall in the City's goalscoring table.
Dave
Payne

61
Back in the days when if a female watched football it was assumed she was more interested in the players' looks than skills, winger Dave was considered one of the main attractions. Luckily on the pitch he also looked the part making over 200 appearances and scoring 54 goals during his first five seasons after signing from local league side Robinsons as a 21-year old. Injuries and a loss of form during the 1988-89 season saw him offloaded to Gloucester City for £1500. Returned to Twerton Park 15 months later for £500 less and took his outings beyond the 300 mark. Moved on again in September 1991 to Clevedon Town. Continued playing with Nailsea United in the Somerset Senior League and a brief period managing Welton Rovers, he is now in charge at Backwell.
