      First professional contracts

      A special day for six youngsters who have signed their first professional contracts with Bristol City.

      Tinn’s debut

      Thirty years ago today, Brian Tinnion made his City debut. Unfortunately, he was on the losing end when the Robins were beaten 2-1 by Swindon Town at The County Ground. Leroy Rosenior scored the goal for Citu in the First Division clash.

      The Whoscored algorithm, which collects numerous stats such as passes completed, tackles made, aerials won, etc., is far from a perfect barometer of a player’s season, but City certainly aren’t the same team without Rob Atkinson.
