Bryan proud to captain boyhood club

Joe Bryan was proud to captain his home city club for the first time in last night’s 2-2 draw with Real Balopédica Linense. 

The 24-year-old defender was handed the armband for City’s Spanish tour opener at Estadio Municipal de La Línea de la Concepción.

Academy product Bryan, who has now clocked up more than 200 first team appearances said: “I’m proud – though I won’t read too much into it as it is a pre-season game!

“But being a captain is something I aspire to be. I need to become more of a leader and it’s something I’ve been trying to do, educating myself and watching lads like Korey (Smith), Marlon (Pack) and Bailes (Bailey Wright), how they act and I’m learning from them.”

Reflecting on the game against the Segunda Division B (Spanish second tier) side, the Bristolian said: “We are disappointed first and foremost. If you are two goals up in any game, whether it’s pre-season, cup or league, then you can’t let a lead slip like that.

“But it’s a pre-season match and we are trying to build processes and things into our performance and they came out, especially in the first half, and we’ll be happy with that. But we need to work on some things such as game management."

City finish their Spanish tour against Rayo Vallecano at the Marbella Football Centre on Saturday (July 21st, 7pm BST).
