Community game a huge triumph

Bristol City’s annual Community Match against Keynsham Town and Brislington FC proved a huge success, with more than £9,000 of vital funds raised for local grassroots sport.

City won the friendly 5-0 against the two local clubs on Sunday July 5th in front of more than 1,300 fans, all packed inside Brislington Stadium.

It follows on from previous successful Community games against Portishead Town and Ashton & Backwell United in previous years.

City’s director of football Keith Burt said: “One of Bristol City Football Club’s proudest achievements is the scope and scale of the Trust’s delivery for our communities.

“The impact the Trust has in the greater Bristol region is incredible and getting more young people involved in sport and engaged with Bristol City FC is vital to the future success of our club. 

“In the last twelve months Bristol City Community Trust has acted as a percolator, working at a local level to reach individuals and communities and help to improve people’s lives. It is important our players do all they can to support this great work.”   

Community director Amy Kington also commented upon the fixtures success, saying: “I am genuinely grateful to everyone who helped make this year’s community game such a huge success.

“It was a great pleasure to work closely with the volunteers of Brislington and Keynsham Football Clubs. It takes a lot of fantastic people to make a great club and Jonathan Rogers and Julian French were simply amazing!

“I would like to place on record my sincere thanks to Keith Burt, the manager and players, Richard Cadden (Safe and Sound), ASM Scaffoldng, WHS Environmental Limited, referee Savvas Yianni and all those who volunteered on the day.

“I would also like to pass on my heartfelt thanks to everyone who attended the game.”

Due to everyone’s generosity on the day, the event raised over £9,000. All proceeds will be equally split between Bristol City Community Trust, Brislington FC and Keynsham Town FC and assist them in delivering worthwhile programmes and services within grassroots sport throughout Bristol. The Community Trust will be using these funds to help boost their existing grassroots football programmes
