Left-back Drysale spent eight years at Ashton Gate from 1969, having joined from Hartlepool United for a fee of £10,000.
He helped take the team into the top flight in 1976 but moved to Oxford United just 12 months later.
Later in his career, Drysdale played locally with Frome Town, Shepton Mallet and Clevedon Town.
He went on to become a self-employed carpenter in Bristol after hanging up his boots.
