Bristol City Council launched a new Sporting Hall of Fame on Thursday 24th May 2018 and details of the Hall of Fame can be found at the following link:

There are five categories in the Hall of Fame and the Club is already represented in four of those categories as follows:

Exceptional Contribution

Keith Brackstone

Mike Down

Chris Elson

Alison Hurford

Rich Kennington

Hilary Nash


Elite Performers

John Gingell

Claire Hallissey

Owain Jones

Sophie Kamlish

Steve Mitchell

Caroline Powell

Nick Rose

Jessie Sanzo

Dan Studley


Name in Lights

Will Christofi

Jack Millar


Young Achievers

Simran Kaur

Hugh Sadler

The one area where there is currently no club representation is in the ‘Inspirational People’ Category. Former member Leon Reid who now runs regularly for Great Britain at 200 metres also made the ‘Elite Performers’ list. This Hall of Fame is intended to grow over the coming years so if you feel someone who should be on the list now – or in the future – isn’t then please approach a Club Committee Member about getting them nominated.
