Bristol City legend Gerry Gow has died at the age of 64 after losing his battle with cancer.

The midfielder made a name for himself with City in the seventies, making almost four hundred appearances with the club over the course of a decade.

After stints at Manchester City, Rotherham and Burnley, Gow moved onto Yeovil Town as player-manager.

During his time there he signed another sporting legend - Sir Ian Botham - before he made the move from the football pitch to the cricket pitch.

In 2012, Gow was given a retrospective testimonial when a City legends team faced Manchester City legends.
