Alfie knows what Robins are all about

Alfie Mawson was unveiled on the Ashton Gate roof today (Sunday, September 6th) to become another pillar in Dean Holden’s side.

The Robins have secured the season-loan signing from Fulham of the centre-back, who becomes Head Coach Holden’s third acquisition of the transfer window following the permanent arrivals of Joe Williams and Chris Martin.

And 25-year-old Mawson, who adds Premier League and Championship experience to the City backline, is raring to go in BS3.

“I’m massively looking forward to getting started,” Mawson told Robins TV. “It’s been in the pipeline a while now and I’m just happy to get it over the line. I just want to meet up with the lads now. I’ve spoken to the gaffer and he was class.

“We spoke a few times and I’ve bought into everything he said to me. He’s got a really good mindset and that’s good for the club, the way he was talking to me about players being brought in and what the club wants to do going forward was a massive selling point.

“I think it’s quite a young squad so I can bring a bit of experience. I know this league well enough to know when to do certain things. Everyone can say about being a ball-playing centre-half but, at the end of the day, I’m a defender and I’ve got to do the dirty work and then show my qualities on the ball at the right times.”

Mawson made 28 appearances for Fulham last season as the West London side won promotion to the top flight via the play-offs.

“Quite soon after the play-off final, when I hadn’t been involved after we came back after the coronavirus pandemic, that I felt I needed to go and play football,” explained Mawson.

“When I heard the opportunity at Bristol City had arisen, I thought that could be a good possibility. The Stadium is incredible, I like the area and it seems a good fit. The experience I gained last year was massive and I’m coming to get back-to-back promotions.”
