Champions Parade There used to be a joke that Bristol had two football teams – neither of which were any good. Well, that’s just not true anymore.
To prove the point, on Sunday May 3rd, Bristol City thrashed Walsall 8-2 prior to being presented with the League One trophy in front of a home crowd of 11,960.
Which didn’t leave a lot of time to work on their celebratory coach trip through the city on May 4th. Actually there were so far ahead in the league, that we had a little bit more notice – but we relish a challenge and the REM home squad is always ready for action.
The first team and club management left Ashton Gate at 12:30 to tour the city with thousands of supporters lined up to cheer the team along a celebratory open-top bus parade. Thousands more turned up at the end of the route on the Harbourside’s Amphitheatre.
Club directors, Steve Cotterill the manager and players thanked their fans and a sea of red and white chanted their approval. The REM squad covered all positions from upfront staging, lighting and PA, to a solid midfield of site management and a robust backline of safety documentation. It is 60 years since the Robins last won a league championship so it really was a unique occasion. But here’s to the next one! Ends
