📣 Ashton Gate Eight 40th Anniversary

City will mark the 40th anniversary of the Ashton Gate Eight with a weekend of appreciation including a pitch parade by the Robins heroes.

It is four decades since Peter Aitken, Chris Garland, Jimmy Mann, Julian Marshall, Geoff Merrick, David Rodgers, Gerry Sweeney and Trevor Tainton selflessly tore up their contracts to save the club from financial ruin.

And for the weekend of the Middlesbrough match on Saturday, February 19th – the closest weekend Ashton Gate fixture following the February 3rd anniversary – the club will host ‘The Eight’ and their loved ones as they travel from across the UK to attend.

A visit to the new Robins High Performance Centre on Friday, February 18th will be followed by an evening dinner at Ashton Gate, while fans have the chance to salute the legends with a pre-match parade 15 minutes ahead of kick-off the following day.

Activity at that Middlesbrough match will include a period of applause in the eighth minute of the game, a giant surfer flag and hand flags, as well as a tribute on the big screen.
