John Atyeo England & Bristol City 'King Of Goals' signed 75.00

John Atyeo England & Bristol City 'King Of Goals' signed testimonial programme - Rare !!!

John Atyeo (7 February 1932 - 8 June 1993) was an English football striker.
He was signed from under the noses of League Champions Portsmouth in 1951 by Bristol City.
He won six England caps from 1955 to 1957, scoring five goals. Despite offers from Chelsea, Spurs and Liverpool
that could have made him the most expensive player in England, he stayed with City throughout his career,
making 647 appearances and scoring 350 goals by the time he retired in 1966.
The new stand that replaced the Park End at Ashton Gate in 1994 is named the Atyeo Stand after the one-club man.

When John Atyeo died in 1993, his former team-mate Jimmy Rogers said: 'They broke the mould after they made him.'
It is the kind of tribute paid to the recently deceased often enough, but rarely has it rung more true than in the case of Big John,
whose 350 Football League and Cup goals and 597 League appearances for Bristol City will almost certainly never be surpassed.

The statistics go on: he is joint seventh in the all-time list of League top scorers, netted five times in six undefeated games for England
and was a swashbuckling striker who was never sent off or cautioned in more than fifteen seasons. Yet facts and figures alone can never tell
the full story of John Atyeo.
Here was a player and a man who made what today would be extraordinary choices in his lifestyle and career.

Even then, his decision to remain a part-time professional with an unfashionable Second Division club bemused most of his contemporaries,
and it certainly cost him his place in the international team. Yet, if he regretted spurning the advances of Chelsea, Liverpool and other big names,
he always said no, he would do it all over again.

Signed by:
John Atyeo (7 February 1932 8 June 1993)
