On this day: Adriano Basso's City debut

It is 15 years to the day since popular goalkeeper Adriano Basso stepped on to the pitch as a Robin for the first time.

Basso spent five years with City, between 2005-2010, during which time he won promotion from League One and reached the Championship play-off final.

And today (November 11th) marks the anniversary of his City debut when the Robins took on Swindon Town at the County Ground in 2005. Scott Murray put City ahead, though goals from Neale McDermott and Rory Fallon put the Wiltshire Robins on course for a 2-1 win.

Brazilian-born Basso's represented Ponte Preta and Atlético Paranaense in his homeland. His first taste of English football was with Woking but after one season he secured his move to Ashton Gate with City then competing in League One.

Basso made 182 appearances for Bristol City during his five-year spell for the club. He would also go on to represent Wolves, Hull City, Truro City, FC United of Manchester, Radcliffe and Nuneaton Town.

Now retired from playing, he is a goalkeeper coach at Grantham Town.
