We asked Incider readers to send in photos for our rogues' gallery so you could be recognized in the stands (or in dark alleyways where one or two of you like you’d be best avoided) and many of you shamelessly took up the offer to get your mugshots on the prestigious pages of The Incider. The police have expressed an interest in several of you and the rest have been entered for the annual gurning contest in Egremont. The offer is still open to those of you who have mystifyingly so far resisted the urge to take it up - please email email@example.com with your vital stats and pic.
My real name is Bethan and I’m 18. Apart from supporting
City, my other hobbies are gymnastics and playing tennis. I started
going to games a couple of seasons before we got promoted to Division
One a few years back. Without a doubt my proudest moment was meeting
my hero Clisty!
I'm 18 years old and I'm an apprentice electrician. I live in Ashton about two minutes from the ground. On matchdays I work in the City shop with my old man (the bald one). I've always been a City fan for as long as I can remember. My dad really didn't give me a choice about that, so as soon as I was able to kick a football I've been going down Ashton Gate.
My favourite memories of watching the City are going up to Anfield for the great 1-0 FA Cup victory and, although this may sound weird, travelling to Carlisle on the coach to watch us beat them 3-0 a few seasons back.
Favourite current player: Matt Hill
The picture shows me and Joe Burnell when I had the opportunity of presenting him with his PFA Player of the Month award.
I have lived in Bristol for ever and supported Bristol City since I was 11, when my grandfather bought me my first season ticket. I have had a season ticket for nearly 30 years on and off, primarily in the Williams Stand as it's the safest place for a 'lone female'.
I'm a golf widow whose husband hates football. We have a ten-year-old son who would rather play than watch football now, so I've saved £30 this year by not buying him a seat which he rarely used. I work for Orange in IT, live in Frenchay and am probably old enough to be Tomarse's mother, but fortunately for him - I'm not.
Favourite players: Matt Hill & Scott Murray
I’ve been a City fan since I was born - yep 43 years ago!
Well, that’s what my dad said. He was called home from a game
in 1959 (not the Cup final) as I was about to be dropped!
When I lived in Bishopsworth, my neighbours included Jack Connor, Mike Gibson (still), Gordon Parr and Chuck Drury (his son Carl was my mate). I was best man to Paul Stevens at his first wedding to his Dutch wife. Ricky Chandler and Russell Musker remain friends. I watched in the Enclosure until I got a season ticket in the new Dolman Stand. The rest is too long to even attempt to write.
Without doubt the Wembley trip to watch the first Bolton game was biggest highlight. There have been too many low points.
I'm 15 and live in Wells, Somerset. I started supporting City properly through the last promotion season under John Ward, becoming hooked and getting my first season ticket in our year in Division One. I have many good memories from the last couple of years which include the 2-1 win at home to league leaders Milwall with a last minute penalty securing the points, wins against Rovers and Reading.
One which stands out, however, is our fantastic victory away to Cardiff last season. Three goals in four minutes is enough to put a smile on anyone’s face, but when you're playing Cardiff in their own back yard it is particularly memorable.
Favourite current player: Lee Peacock (Feed the
cock and he will score).
My real name is Pete and I live near the Webbington Hotel in. Somerset. My beautiful wife Jill is from Doncaster, so she supports the Rovers – but not the Gas! We have a son Jack, six, and daughter Adrianne, eight. We also have two Labradors and a miniature pot-bellied pig called Charlotte (honest)! I sit in the Williams Stand seat GM10, close to where I used to stand on the terraces.
First City match: Anglo Scottish final vs St
My real name is Rob Bates. I am over 30 but under 40 and still wonder why any league scouts haven't been to see me play. The first game I can remember attending was during the mid-70s against Ipswich in the days when the ground was packed and I could only see one half unless my dad picked me up. I dabble in websites and the picture is the one I doctored on my work website before putting it back! Apologies for the Korean expression.
I still play football on Saturdays so don't get to see as many games as I'd like - and when I do I’m usually rewarded with a display as bad as that against Cambridge last season in the Cup. I’ve been through all the ups and downs and still have eternal hopes of a rise back to the top league. I am also a friend of a colleague of a certain reporter for The Sun. But as with Edson, don't hold that against me.
Favourite current players: Robin Hulbert (livewire
who should get more starts) and Matty Hill (if only he was a foot
