Season’s Review Night and Award Presentation Evening
On Tuesday 8th May at the Dolman Exhibition Hall there will be a spectacular event put on by Bristol City Supporters Club, Bristol City Football Club and Bristol City Supporters Trust. This will be the first time that an event of this nature has been put on at Bristol City.
Here’s what’s happening:
Doors will open at 6.45. The bar will be open and raffle tickets will be on sale. There are some fantastic prizes up for grabs including; two tickets plus hospitality for the Premiership match of your choice, a laptop computer, a signed City legends shirt, a signed current City squad shirt and Meatloaf tickets.
The main event will kick off at 7.30, hosted by Dave Lloyd. He'll introduce the players, and then we'll have a big screen video review of the first half of the season which has been put together by the City media team. Then Dave will be chatting to Steve Lansdown and Gary Johnson.
We'll have an interval followed by the raffle draw. Next up will be a video review of the second half of the season, finishing with the Rotherham game and what we all hope will be massive celebrations at Ashton Gate. Then it's on to the awards, which will be presented by Club President Marina Dolman. There will be five awards.
1. The Champagne Moment. Six moments of individual brilliance from the season. We'll show them on the night and ask everyone present to vote for their favourite.
2. The Supporter of the Year. Nominations have been received for Supporter of the Year, and a shortlist has been drawn up and passed to the players. They have selected a winner who will be announced on the night. Click here to read the shortlist of those nominated.
3. Top Scorer. No mystery about this one – it will go to the player who has scored the most goals this season. Seven hat tricks from Adriano Basso against Rotherham will put him in with a great chance.
4. Young Player of the Year as voted for by members of the Supporters’ Club and the Supporters Trust.
5. Player of the Year as voted for by members of the Supporters’ Club and the Supporters Trust.
Following the awards we'll have a set from West Country legend Fred Wedlock. The entertainment should finish around 10.15 and the bar will be open till 11.
Tickets are astonishingly good value at £5, and numbers are limited. If we do get promotion on Saturday, then expect the DEH to be rammed to the rafters, so don't leave it too late to get your ticket. They are available either from the ticket office (which will be closed on Sunday and Monday, but open as normal on Tuesday), or in the DEH before and after the match on Saturday.
