A Bristol City fan, who's been enjoying uninterrupted views of Ashton Gate on match days - from his shed - has been given a season ticket by the club.
Ben Swift, otherwise known as "Shed Man", has been able to catch games for free from the back of his garden ever since redevelopment of the stadium began. He'll lose that once the new south stand is completed so the club have given him a proper seat.
He told ITV News: "It's come as quite a big surprise they didn't really have to do that. I haven't really done too much in a way to earn it as I've been watching it for free for most of the season."
Bristol City are a step closer to Wembley after winning 4-2 at Gillingham in the first leg of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy area final.
The home side went ahead in the 6th minute, but Matt Smith responded with all four of City's goals. He's now scored seven times since joining on loan from Fulham.
No date has been confirmed yet for the return leg at Ashton Gate.
A total of £4,198.39 was raised by Bristol Rovers Supporters through bucket collections prior, during and after the New Year’s Day Torquay United match at the Memorial Stadium, to help pay towards an operation for 6 year-old Bristol City fan, Oskar Pycroft.
Oskar has bilateral spastic cerebral palsy. He can't stand, sit or walk without help and is in constant pain with his muscles and joints. Without complex medical intervention, Oskar faces a life of continuing pain and will never be able to walk independently.
An operation called SDR which could change his life. Surgeons will perform the operation in Bristol on a private basis as Oskar does not meet current NHS criteria.
Oskar’s mum Lizzy is aiming to raise £50k to enable Oskar to have this treatment in Bristol.
I would like to thank all our supporters and those of Torquay who gave so generously for Oskar‘s operation. This money, together with the Supporters Club quiz night and a donation from the Fans Forum, means the total donation from Bristol Rovers fans is in excess of £4,650 and I know this will greatly help boost Oskar’s operation appeal.
It is only right that there should be rivalry in Bristol which is all part of the excitement of football. However, what is even more important is that football is very much a family. It is at times like this that two football families in Bristol have rightly come together to support Oskar to help him walk. We wish the youngster every success with the operation ahead.
