Remembering City's record win

Remember remember the fifth of November: gunpowder, treason and a record City win.

It is 59 years to the day since City recorded their biggest victory to date.

It came in the first round of the FA Cup, with Fred Ford guiding the Robins to an 11-0 win against Chichester City at Ashton Gate on November 5th, 1960.

The club's record goalscorer John Atyeo scored five goals that day, with Adrian Williams netting a hat-trick.

Robert (Bobby) Williams and Alex Tait were also on the scoresheet, while an own goal from Derek Bailey aided City's huge scoreline.
