Last match I went to see: Bristol City 0-0 Gillingham, Saturday 14th March 2015, League One.


VISIT 1: Bristol City 1-2 Gillingham 14/8/12 (Capital One Cup 1st Round)
VISIT 2: Bristol City 2-1 Gillingham 1/3/14
VISIT 3: Bristol City 1-1 Gillingham 29/1/15 (Johnstone's Paint Trophy Southern Arena Final Leg 2)
VISIT 4: Bristol City 0-0 Gillingham 14/3/15

I have been to Ashton Gate twice now with Gillingham, the first time was in the 2012/13 season in the Capital One Cup on a Tuesday night, where we won 2-1, and the 2nd time was in the 2013/14 season where we lost 2-1. I like Ashton Gate, although they are rebuilding a new stand behind the goal where the away fans were as I speak, it's a good away day, very easy to get to by train. Also near the ground is Nelson Mandela House, where Only Fools and Horses was filmed (picture below) as it was filmed in Bristol. Parson Street station is around a 10-15 min walk.

The famous Nelson Mandela House (1st picture), the home of Del Boy and Rodders in Only Fools and Horses. Even though on the programme it's in London, the filming was set in Bristol, pretty much by Ashton Gate.
