History[ edit ] Formation and the early years[ edit ] The club was formed on 5 March as Gloucester,  but the first recorded match came during —84 when a scratch team representing Cheltenham played a match against the new Gloucester side.
During this era the club was noted as 'The Gloucestrians' and 'The Citizens' in local media. By they had assumed the name of Gloucester City once more and had become founder members of the Gloucestershire Northern Senior League. In —35, after winning both the Cup and League, City turned semi-professional, and joined the Birmingham Combinationas well as moving to a new stadium in Longlevens where the club stayed for the next 26 years.
They won the Tillotson Cup for being the best club in the Birmingham Combination, and then had former Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Reg Weaver blow away all records with his stunning tally of 67 goals in the —38 season.
Southern League entry and Cup success[ edit ] In the club played in the Southern Football League for the very first time, albeit in a restricted wartime competition, as they took part in the west section. After the war City rejoined the Southern League and went on to become the League's longest serving members.

It took until the —56 season for Gloucester to taste their first success in the Southern League. A famous Southern League Cup final win against Yeovil Town in which City had lost the first leg 4—1, only to beat Yeovil 5—1 in the second leg, won the club their first major honour.
Horton Road era[ edit ] In the club moved grounds again, from Longlevens to the massive Horton Road stadium, closer to the centre of Gloucesterwhich could possibly hold over 30, people if full. Although Gloucester City were promoted to the Southern Football League Premier Division in the —69 season, it was generally a barren spell.
In the —82 season a sixth-place finish was enough to clinch a place in the reformed Premier Division. They were also runners-up in the League Cup, going down 1—2 to Wealdstonewho included future England captain Stuart Pearce in their ranks. Despite Kim Casey scoring 40 goals, the club were relegated to the Midland Division in —85, after 3 seasons in the Premier Division.
The Horton Road ground became a housing estate which now boasts the names of City legends: Former Aston Villa and Wales player Brian Godfrey was appointed manager in and thus heralded an era of success.
The next big achievement of the Godfrey years was the famous FA Cup run in —90 which has still not been matched. Mangotsfield United 4—0Barry Town 2—2,2—0Folkestone 1—0 and Dorchester Town 1—0 all came and went before City suffered heartbreak in the replay against Cardiff City after being 2—0 up at Ninian Park with just five minutes to go.
In the winter ofGloucester saw its worst snow in a century and when the thaw came the River Severn overwhelmed all local flood plains.
The knock-on effect of the flood saw incredible scenes at Meadow Park as the pitch was submerged under four feet of water, and the whole ground was out of commission for over a month.
Last minute promotion heartbreak and debt[ edit ] The —91 season was one of the most exciting ever seen at the club.
Godfrey added several quality players to his squad as City challenged for the league title. As the season climaxed, the Tuesday before the end of the season Gloucester City had needed to beat VS Rugby at home to go top of the table, but could only manage a 2—2 draw, so it was all on the last day of the season at the Victoria Ground, the home of Bromsgrove Rovers.
Farnborough headed up to Atherstone needing to win, and went 0—1 down to the delight of the thousand travelling City fans. In the final minutes, substitute John Freegard got his head to a long free kick had put The Tigers ahead.
In the meantime Farnborough had scored, as City fans were on the pitch celebrating the Championship and promotion to the Conference Nationalbut all they had heard were premature radio reports from Atherstone ; Farnborough had actually scored a winner three minutes before the end of the game and they were promoted instead.
In Julythe club became the first British football club to venture to the newly independent country of Georgia for a summer tour, playing second division side NapareuliMesxti and Umaglesi Liga outfit Shevardeni.
Into the —92 season the bombshell hit City that Chairman Les Alderman had left the club. The squad was ripped apart: Brian Godfrey was sacked and replaced by his assistant Steve Millard.
