Lansdown Pays Tribute To Pemberton

Bristol City majority shareholder Steve Lansdown has paid tribute to John Pemberton for his four-year service to the club.

The Lancastrian arrived at the club in 2013 to assist then head coach Sean O’Driscoll, until his departure in November of the same year.

The 52-year-old stepped in as caretaker boss before Steve Cotterill was appointed to the helm.

Pemberton reverted to his role as assistant as City moved clear of the League One relegation zone and then embarked on their double-winning campaign of 2014/15.

Winning the club’s first league title for 55 years, City stormed to the title with 99 points, and also celebrated a record third Football League Trophy success at Wembley by beating Walsall.

When Cotterill left Ashton Gate in January 2016, Pemberton was again the man to step into the fray, taking charge of four matches and claiming seven points.

Pemberton again formed part of the coaching staff when Lee Johnson was appointed new head coach in February 2016.

Lansdown said: “John has been part of the Bristol City family for the past four years, playing a lead role in the coaching team. However, when reviewing our plans for the future John was unfortunately not part of them.

“I have really enjoyed working with John and would like to take this opportunity to thank him on behalf of everyone at the club for his hard work, dedication and commitment during his time at Ashton Gate. We wish him all the best for the future.”
