Children's support can't save City

BRISTOL City's FA Cup dream may have been short-lived this year - but it wasn't for lack of support from fans at one Weston school.
The Robins were sunk 3-0 at home by League One Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, but their disappointing demise did not dampen the spirits of pupils from Westhaven School. City coaches help train the Westhaven pupils every Tuesday, and the youngsters repaid that kindness by travelling to support the club in their cup quest.
School spokesman Tommy Barlow said: “The boys took part in the half time parade around the pitch with a City flag, and were tremendous in their support for their heroes despite the score.
“Man of the match? Aaron Richards. Deep into extra time, with the City down by three goals, Aaron kept up his loud and incessant chant in support of his heroes. Never say die - that’s the spirit Aaron.”
