Minute's applause ahead of Millwall game

City will be holding a minute’s applause ahead of kick-off on Saturday with Millwall in memory of club legend Alec Eisentrager.

The post-war great, who was part of the 1955 Third Division (South) title-winning squad passed away at the age of 90 last week.

He made 246 appearances for the club during a nine-year spell, scoring 47 times. The players will also don black armbands as a mark of respect.

IN MEMORY

The club will also mark the passing of two supporters, Mitchell Webber and George Zographou.

Mitchell was just 19 and was a season card holder in the Lansdown Stand wheelchair area. Back in 2013 he led the team out as a mascot against Peterborough United and he also completed work experience at Ashton Gate.

His dad Simon says: “Mitchell was very well known at the club and many of the players knew him as the happy lad in his wheelchair. A minute’s applause would have been his last wish.”

George – a Lansdown Stand season card holder – passed away at the age of 18 after falling ill at the Boardmasters Festival in Cornwall. This week he would have been collecting his A-level results from St Brendan’s Sixth Form college.

Our thoughts are with the family and friends of both Mitchell and George at this sad time.
