It was with a mixture of surprise and disappointment that club captain Gary was allowed to leave City at the end of the 2002-03 season for Merthyr Tydfil having spent three months on loan at Penydarren Park in an attempt to regain match fitness following injury. He had joined City from Newport County in July 2001 and the whole-hearted former Swindon Town centre-back was deservedly named player of the year at the end of that season. Rumours of behind the scenes issues preceded his departure but he was received warmly when facing City with the Welsh side and is still rightly well thought of at Twerton Park. Has since played for Chippenham Town and Mangotsfield United, before joining Cirencester Town in July 2008.

Mike was a vastly experienced full-back who made over 400 appearances for Bristol City during his eleven seasons at Ashton Gate, having begun his career with Chard, where he was described by Manchester City and England winger Mike Summerbee as the hardest player he had faced.

A rarity in the City side in recent years Peter was born in Bath. Joined in the summer of 1998 after impressing in pre-season he was never a regular first team starter until the 2000-01 season. Missed just a handful of games that campaign but his City career was brought to an abrupt end when he moved to London for work reasons.

Chris
Townsend

A prolific goalscorer with Cheltenham Town and Gloucester City, Chris joined City from Dorchester Town in December 1990 for £12,000. Despite this pedigree he was a major disappointment at Twerton Park, scoring just four times in 14 appearances, all in one incredible game against Northwich Victoria. Was transfer listed just before the start of the 1991-92 season and after a two-month loan spell with Stroud (where he scored nine goals!) he returned to Gloucester City on a free transfer. He joined Chesham United and helped them to the Isthmian League title in 1993, scoring five time in one game.

Mike
Trought
81
1
One word can sum Mike's three seasons with City and it is 'injured' after moving to Twerton Park from Bristol Rovers. He never seemed to pick up serious injuries but a succession of 'minor' knocks continually sidelined him. Incredibly he still managed to make 80 starts during this time and showed signs, particularly at the start of the 2003-04 season, of being a quality centre-back. Fittingly a knee injury picked up half way through the 2004-05 campaign was the beginning of the end for him at City and he was released at in May. Spent four seasons with the Pirates having joined as a trainee, making around 30 first team appearances. Now with Paulton Rovers, after spells with Backwell United and Clevedon Town.

Helped the side to the 2000 FA Vase Final and then scored 49 goals during their 2000-01 promotion season. Continued to regularly find the net for the Bluebirds although injuries began to restrict his outings. Surprisingly moved to Forest Green in January 2003 only to move on when he found his first team opportunities limited. Despite suffering further injury problems whilst at City Steve was soon a crowd favourite but lost his place to John Williams and joined Paulton Rovers in November 2004.
