Chris Garland Obituary – Death: Bristol City Legend Player, Chris Garland Passes Away At 74

Chris Garland Obituary News: Chris Garland, a legend for Bristol City, has sadly died away. The Bristol City FC announced the former striker’s passing.

Before making a second appearance with City between 1976 and 1983, the 74-year-old played for them from 1966 to 1971. He appeared in 248 games and contributed 54 goals for Bristol City.

Garland is also one of just two players to have played for City in each of the Football League’s four divisions. He was a native of Bristol and spent his childhood in Southbow, one of the most recognizable tower buildings in the city, just a short distance from Ashton Gate.

Since it was high enough, he could view the matches from his family’s apartment. He was so appropriately inspired by the action he witnessed as a youngster and later as a teenager.

Who is Chris Garland?

Christopher Garland was an English footballer who played in all four divisions of the Football League. He was capped once by England at under-23 level.

A forward, he began his professional career with local club Bristol City in April 1966. He was sold to Chelsea for £100,000 in 1971, and went on to play on the losing side of the 1972 League Cup final.

Christopher joined Leicester City in 1974, before returning to Bristol City in November 1976. The club underwent a dramatic decline from the First Division to the Fourth Division and he had to accept a termination of his contract for half the amount due in 1982, though he went on to remain at the club for another season.

Christopher later played for Gloucester City, coached at Yeovil Town and managed Minehead.
