Book signing in the Sports Bar

Supporters can get their hands on signed copies of a new book, 'Wedlock - The First Hero of Bristol City.'

The book has been written by Darren Hurley and focuses on the club legend.

Billy Wedlock was born in Bedminster and was City’s linchpin in the early 1900s when City were runners up in the First Division (1906/07), three points behind Newcastle United and runners up to Manchester United in the 1909 FA Cup final.

But Wedlock's name lives on at the club to this day. The South Stand was known as the Wedlock Stand before Ashton Gate's redevelopment and when you approach the main entrance along Wedlock Way, on the left is the Wedlock Wall with plaques dedicated to City fans.

Now the latest book will be available from the Sports Bar Mezzanine at Ashton Gate tomorrow (November 23rd) at 1pm, signed by author Darrwen Hurley.
