– Jon Lansdown, Bristol City Managing Director
It's important that we give ourselves the best possible chance of surviving and moving up the Championship table this season. In Sean we have someone with a track record of developing clubs longer term, as well as a wealth of experience at this level, which will be vital in our fight for survival in the Championship. I am delighted he decided to join us ahead of a number of other offers he has received. This season has been a rocky ride and we find ourselves in a difficult position, but we still have the time and ability to get out of it.
