Alec Eisentrager 1927-2017

The club is saddened to learn of the passing of Alec Eisentrager at the age of 90.

A post-war City great and member of the Supporters Club & Trust Hall of Fame, he was captured on a Dutch airfield as a 16-year-old and shipped over to a Prisoner of War camp near Trowbridge for the rest of the war.

Afterwards the German-born inside forward played for Trowbridge Town where he was spotted by City, who then signed him in 1949.

A member of the 1955 Third Division (South) title-winning squad, Eisentrager went on to make 246 appearances for the club, scoring 47 times.

He remained with the club until 1958 when he was transferred to Merthyr Town, where he played until his retirement.

Eisentrager's greatest moment came in September 1949 when he scored four goals in a 6-0 drubbing of Newport County.

Everyone at the club would like to pass on their condolences to Alec’s family and friends.
