Terry Bush: 1943 - 2018

Bristol City Football Club was saddened to hear of the passing of Terry Bush, who has died aged 75.

Bush, who some fans argue had the most powerful shot of any Robins player, spent his entire footballing career at City, where the forward scored 45 goals in 182 appearances.

Terry was born in Norfolk but began his footballing career as a junior at Bristol City, signing as a professional in February 1960.

The 1964/65 season could be considered his best, as he scored 16 goals in 37 league appearances, contributing towards the team winning promotion to Division Two (City finished runner-up in the league). He was forced to retire in 1970 after suffering from knee problems.

His long service was rewarded with a joint testimonial with Tony Ford on July, 31st 1971.

Terry had a powerful physique and scored a number of spectacular goals. After retiring, he joined the City staff as assistant secretary before becoming a full-time official for the Transport and General Workers Union.
