City Fans Get Involved In Double-Winning Season Celebrations

Thousands of City fans turned out to cheer on Bristol City as the club celebrated its double-winning season in style.

Crowds gathered from early in the morning to get a glimpse of the first team players and management as they departed Ashton Gate in two open-top buses for a tour of the city. 

Owner Steve Lansdown said: “It’s a phenomenal turnout. I’m so pleased so many have come to recognise the success that Bristol City has had. It’s been a fairytale season here with two trophies, fantastic results and a great way to sign-off, into the summer and of course the Championship!"

Sixty years since Bristol City last won a league championship the Robins did it in style, recording their highest ever total with 99 points in 46 games. 

Steve Cotterill’s side also won the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy earlier in the season when the club took 40,000 fans to Wembley.

Greeted with nearly ten thousand people cheering and singing his name, manager Steve Cotterill said he was humbled by the turn-out:

“I think this is what the last nine months is all about, having these moments afterwards.  We had it at Wembley and we had it after the game on Sunday, you have to remember these moments. 

"This is what it is all about, these celebrations and what it brings to a city. These last twelve months have been probably magnificent for the fans and they deserve it. They are good people and their passion strives the whole club on."

On Sunday City thrashed Walsall 8-2 prior to being presented with the League One trophy in front of another sell-out crowd.
