Landmark Day For Experienced Pair

Aaron Wilbraham and Gary O’Neil couldn’t have chosen a better day to celebrate landmark appearances in their illustrious careers.

Wilbraham ticked on to 600 appearances as a second-half substitute at Wigan Athletic on Saturday, while skipper Gary O’Neil led the team out at the DW Stadium to rack up the 500th appearance of his career.

The game saw City record their first away league victory since September and lifted the team out of the relegation zone.

Head coach Lee Johnson told bcfc.co.uk: “In the dressing room afterwards we gave them both a big round of applause.

“It’s a testament to them both for their professionalism. They look after themselves and to make those landmark appearances in such an important win makes it even more special.”

 

The cycling event will take place on Sunday, July 1st, starting at Ashton Gate Stadium and offering a choice of four routes for all abilities – Bronze (40 miles), Silver (60 miles), Gold (100 miles), or the newly-included 10-mile Spectrum route.

“We’re really excited about Break The Cycle 2018 and anticipate another big turnout this year,” said event director, Paul Glanville.

“Last year, we raised more than £25,000 and we’ll be looking to beat that total in July.

“Break The Cycle really is a fantastic community fundraiser and we can’t wait for the big day to arrive.”

It’s the eighth year of Break the Cycle, with last year’s edition raising more vital funds for Bristol Sport Foundation, Bristol City Community Trust, Bristol Rugby Community Foundation and Bristol Flyers Community, as more than 300 cyclists braved the scorching conditions to complete their chosen route.
