Additional Harry Dolman books printed

Due to public demand, further copies of Harry Dolman’s book have been printed.

After 18 months of vigorous planning, research and writing, a book about the life of Harry Dolman was launched at Ashton Gate in November.

Harry Dolman OBE dedicated nearly 40 years of his life to the football club he loved, as director, chairman and president.

His many contributions to the club included designing the stand named after him at his beloved Ashton Gate stadium, as well as introducing (after designing them himself) the ground’s first floodlights and entry turnstiles.

The book offers a revealing insight into Harry’s business acumen as well as a behind-the-scenes snapshot of the trials and tribulations of running a football club.

Harry Dolman: The Millionaire Inventor Who Became “Mr Bristol City”, by Martin Powell and Clive Burlton, has been published by Bristol Books and is now available for purchase from the Bristol Sport Store (£12rrp).

All proceeds from book sales go directly to Bristol City Community Trust.
