Message from the club.

The chairman, directors, management, players and staff at Ashton Gate would like to wish Happy New Year to all our supporters around the world.

The club's majority shareholder Steve Lansdown said: "Year 2012 will not go down as a great year in the history of Bristol City FC but we ended it on a winning note and playing npower Championship football.

"Our main wish for 2013 has to be to retain our Championship status and by this time next year to be challenging in the top half of the division.

"Our FA Cup campaign starts on January 5th and it's about time we had a cup run to give the supporters some fun and boost the club's finances.

"A lot of investment has been made in our Academy and recruitment process and the hope for 2013 is for this policy to start bearing fruit as we see more young players like Joe Bryan progress from the Academy, and Greg Cunningham being brought in from other clubs.

"We look forward to a positive year ahead where we provide our supporters with excitement, enjoyment and a club to be proud of."
