Pack departs Ashton Gate

Bristol City have today bid a fond farewell to Marlon Pack.

The 28-year-old has completed a deadline day move to Cardiff City for an undisclosed fee, bringing an end to his six-year stay at Ashton Gate.

City Chief Executive Officer Mark Ashton said: “First of all I would like to thank Marlon for everything he has done for this football club. There have been some memorable moments which he’s played a significant part in.

“There’s always mixed emotions when a long-standing player departs, but it’s the right thing for Marlon and we wish him the very best.”

Head Coach Lee Johnson commented: “It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with Marlon and I’ve had the privilege of seeing him develop both on and off the field.

“He is a fantastic person - as good an individual as I’ve worked with - and has been a great servant and leader to this club, and I thank him on behalf of everyone, both staff and players.  

“At this stage in his career and what was offered for him it makes this move the right decision for Marlon and Bristol City.”

Pack enjoyed six years in BS3

Since signing from Cheltenham Town after a successful trial in 2013, Pack has been a near ever-present in the heart of the club’s midfield.

In 2014/15 he was integral to the team that famously won both the Sky Bet League One title and Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

The midfielder earned praise for his displays against Manchester City

He helped the Robins reach the semi-final of the 2017/18 Carabao Cup, finding the net against Manchester City in the second leg at Ashton Gate.

The Portsmouth-born player, who has deputised as captain on recent occasions, was a popular figure around BS3 and we wish him well for the future.

In total, Pack made 288 appearances in a City shirt, scoring 12 goals.
