Injury forced him back into non-league football with Frome Town in 1992.

Would become a regular fixture in the City side for the next six seasons, although he almost left at the end of the 1962-63 season after not being offered a new contract by Malcolm Allison before a change of heart by the recently appointed manager. For the 1967-68 season he became player-manager for the club's newly-formed A Team but was released at its conclusion.

Walker

14
Talented left-sided player Scott joined City after he was released from Exeter City towards the end of the 1998-99 season and immediately produced a series of impressive performances. Playing in Paul Bodin's favoured position did not help the 19-year old's first team chances but he earned a more regular starting place toward the end of the 1999-2000 season. A great crosser of the ball he also scored a number of long range goals. When Bodin's side broke up at the end of the next season Scott headed to Newport County on a free transfer after the Welsh side took advantage of a transfer loophole. Moved onto Chippenham Town in 2002, then to Weston Super Mare three seasons later and is currently with Truro City.

25
Son of former City player Alan, striker Phil joined the club from Almondsbury in the summer of 2005 after impressing in pre-season. Always a player who gave 100% he initially formed an excellent partnership with Scott Partridge but increasingly found himself out of the starting XI. Spent loan spells with Paulton Rovers and Tiverton Town during the 2006-07 season but remained at Twerton for the 2007-08 season where he continued to be an excellent squad player. Looked set to be joining big-spending Truro City in May 2008, only for their full-time plans to fall through, and eventually switched to fellow Blue Square South side Newport County a month later before moving onto Tiverton Town in December 2009.

Was a first team regular at Plainmoor for two years until a knee injury forced him out of professional football. Joined City in July 1990 only for further injury problems to disrupt his first season at Twerton Park.

Lost his place to Paul Chenoweth at the start of the 1993-94 season and spent the majority of it on loan at Cheltenham Town. A broken ankle in March 1994 saw him released two months later. Unsurprisingly, given his time spent in treatment rooms, Ian is now a physiotherapist with Cheltenham.

A former Welsh international Andy joined City from Swindon in September 2001. The winger had an inconsistent first season with City but the next year became a vital part of the side and was deservedly named player of the year. Unfortunately injury sidelined him for most of the 2003-04 season, including a recurrence of the hernia problem that cut short his league career. Finally a knee problem forced him to quit the club in July 2004 and take a break from the game. Prior to his time at Twerton Park he had began his career at Southampton, playing 20 games for the Premiership side, then joining Swindon for £65,000 in October 1999. He was a regular at the County Ground during his first season there before he suffered the hernia injury. Attempted a return to playing during the 2005-06 season but only made one substitute outing at Mangotsfield United in January 2006.

Despite spending just a single season with City widely travelled striker John will long be remembered at Twerton Park. Scored 19 goals but it was the way he seemed to thoroughly enjoy playing for the club that endeared him to the City faithful. And all this after getting some early criticism for his laid-back attitude. During a 14-year professional career he played for 13 clubs, including a three-year spell in the Premiership with Coventry City. Was known as the flying postman during this spell and was widely considered the fastest player in English football at the time. At 37 years of age decided to join a club nearer his home in Birmingham and joined Redditch United in May 2005 only to be released two months into the new season. Briefly resurfaced with Weston Super Mare plus spells with Evesham Town, Stourbridge, Willenhall Town and, last season aged 40, Boldmere St Michaels. He also made less impressive headlines in June 2008 when he received a suspended jail sentence after admitting harassing his estranged wife.
Keith
Williams

A vastly experienced midfielder Keith was signed by Bobby Jones in the early months of the 1987-88 season. Had previously played for Aston Villa and Northampton but was a youth team coach with Bournemouth when he joined City. However, it was this role which restricted his availability and after just eight appearances, where he looked one of the most impressive players to wear a City shirt for many years, the club reluctantly released him. He made a single substitute outing for Colchester United after this and was then briefly linked with the City manager's job following Jones' sacking at the end of that season. He had spells with Swanage Town & Herston, Salisbury, Poole Town and Ringwood Town, and has since managed Wessex League side Bournemouth Poppies.

Not the current City managing director (I assume!) but a former Bristol City striker who signed from Exeter City in November 1987. Born in Newton Abbot he was a strong and quick forward but in his twenty appearances for City failed to once find the net. He was released at the end of the season.

Having been on the books of both Bristol clubs, Peter signed for City in the 1959 close season. Immediately formed an almost unstoppable partnership with Charlie Fleming, the pair netting 90 goals between them to fire the club to their first ever Southern League title in 1959-60. Failed to match this scoring rate the following season and the 26-year old left at its conclusion.

Striker Graham is one of just five players to have registered over 100 goals for City, which he achieved in five separate spells between 1980 and 1997. Signed from Welton Rovers in the summer of 1980 he scored 55 goals during the next two seasons which earned him a £5K move to Bristol Rovers and the start of a league career that peaked with a period at 1st Division Coventry City. Was back on loan from Cardiff City in February 1986 before signing permanently in December that year after a brief time with Bristol City. Returned to league football with Exeter City in August 1988. His fourth, and longest, spell began in March 1991 when he returned to help City retain their Conference status. Was a regular for the next two seasons but failed to reproduce the scoring rate of early years. A hat-trick against Kettering at the start of his fifth spell, when he was plucked from local league football, preceded him finishing the 1995-96 season as top scorer. Left City for the final time in January 1997 and has since played and coached at Weston.
