Life after Bristol City


Out of stock

Categories: ,


Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor … what did become of your favourite City players once they’d finished playing professional football? Well, Mark Leesdad (author of the popular ‘Memory Lane’ column featured each week in The Sunday Independent) has continued his personal crusade to find the answers, with a selection of some old (and some not so old) favourites featured in this book. So far, no tinkers, tailors, soldiers or sailors, but a mixture of teachers, builders and bankers, and, of course, the obligatory postman, to name just a few of the occupations chosen by those Robins of yesteryear. Of course, some have stayed in the game in either coaching or management, while a few others have opted for sunnier climes and a new life overseas. This selection of 60 former players from as far back as the fifties right through to recent years have all been tracked down and personally interviewed by the author. Enjoy meeting again some of your Ashton Gate heroes such as Shaun Goater, Gerry Gow and Bob Taylor – all with before-and-after photographs.
