Alex Harris (Goalkeeper)

Signed from Hereford FC in 2017, Harris is a formidable shot stopper and possesses a real presence in goal. A former Newport County prospect, the 25-year old won league titles two seasons in a row with Cinderford Town and then Hereford and is on a hat-trick now with the Tigers. During Cinderford’s championship winning season, he set a league record for clean sheets, keeping 24.

 

 

 

 

 

Keiran Thomas (Defender)

Since the ex-Cinderford Town captain joined City in 2016, Thomas has excelled for the Tigers. In his first season since stepping up two divisions from the Foresters, Thomas was named the Players and Supporters Player of the Season, as well as picking up a host of local media awards. His form was recognised through a trial with Derby County, where he was highly praised by the academy staff there. In 2017, Thomas was appointed team captain for the National League South season.

 

 

 

 

Lewis Hall (Defender/Winger)

Left sided player signed from Bristol City in 2015. Hall made the transition from left winger to left back for the 2016/17 campaign and looked a natural returning to the position he started his career at. Adept at the back and going forward, Hall is a versatile option for Tim Harris’ side.

 

 

 

 

 

Spencer Hamilton (Defender)

Centre half signed from Cheltenham Town in 2014. Now heading into his fourth season with the Tigers, Hamilton has developed well during his time with the Tigers, showing a mature attitude both on and off the pitch. Whilst he’s been at City, Hamilton has won many fans with his versatility and ability to do a job wherever he’s asked to. Hamilton also captained the England Universities team in 2017.

 

 

 

 

 

Sam Avery (Defender)

A product of the much acclaimed Gloucester City Youth Development setup, Avery returned to the Tigers in 2014 after leading Shortwood United to a televised FA Cup first round tie against Port Vale. In 2015/16, Avery was voted as the Players and Supporters Player of the Season and continued his stellar performances in the 2016/17 campaign.

 

 

 

 

 

Kieran Parselle (Defender)

The 20 year-old centre half was signed from Newport County ahead of the 2017/18 season, after catching the eye of Tim Harris whilst playing against City in the FA Cup for Salisbury. Parselle can also play at left back and adds versatility to the back line.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Will Tunnicliff (Defender)

Another product of the youth academy, 17 year-old Tunnicliff has made the step up from the youth in pre-season 2017 and has looked assured. Currently out on loan at Bishop’s Cleeve.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tom Webb (Midfielder)

A bonafide club legend. Club captain Webb has made over 670 appearances for Gloucester City since stepping into the first team as a 16 year-old way back in the 2000/01 season. Webb was offered a trial with Crewe Alexandra as a youngster but turned down the opportunity to stay with his home team, and has been a stalwart ever since. His relentless energy still astounds many fans.

 

 

 

 

 

Joe Hanks (Midfielder)

Hanks is a fans-favourite and seen by many as the natural successor to Webb. Formerly of Cheltenham Town, Hanks is one of the most comfortable players on the ball in the side and has a touch of quality about his play that sets him above others, including an eye for goal – he chipped in with 10 goals to add to his 13 assists in 2016/17.

 

 

 

 

Chris Knowles (Midfielder)

Knowles was an integral part of the Tigers team in 2016/17. When Knowles was on the pitch, City averaged just over 2 points per game compared to under 1.5 points per game without him in the side. Senior Football Manager at Hartpury College during the day, Knowles brings calmness, organisation and communication to the team when he’s on the pitch.

Reece King (Midfielder)

Tall central midfielder signed from Malvern Town in 2017, King made his first team debut against Nuneaton Town and instantly stood out, claiming the man of the match award in his first game since stepping up the four levels to the Tigers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Darren Mullings (Midfielder)

Industrious central midfielder who rejoined City in 2016 from Weston Super-Mare. A favourite with the supporters, Mullings is well known for his tenacious attitude on the pitch as well as his ability to dictate play. Can also play at centre back.

 

 

 

 

 

 

George Forsyth (Midfielder/Defender)

Deep-lying playmaker signed from Kidderminster Harriers ahead of the 2017/18 season. Former captain of the Kidderminster Harriers academy, Forsyth adds versatility to the midfield for his ability to play deep, and also slot into centre half if required. An impressive pre-season campaign in 2017/18 quickly gained him fans amongst the City faithful.

 

 

 

 

 

Ed Williams (Midfielder/Forward)

Formerly of Cheltenham Town, Williams has excelled for Gloucester City since joining in 2015. With pace and trickery to his name, the versatile attacker adds a wealth of options to Tim Harris’ team, as well as being a very dangerous goal threat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ethan Moore (Forward)

Having missed the entire 2016/17 season due to a torn ACL, City fans are excited to see what Moore can do this year. Top goalscorer in the 2015/16 Cinderford Town side that won the league, Moore had a decent pre-season and is chomping at the bit to make strides again after nearly a year out injured.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Zack Kotwica (Forward)

Tricky striker with an eye for goal and a step-over to match. Kotwica re-signed for Gloucester City ahead of the 2016/17 season where he found the net 13 times. A natural with the ball at his feet, Kotwica isn’t afraid to show a bit of flair but equally get stuck in and do the dirty work where it matters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Joe Parker (Forward)

Livewire former Newport County striker and another product of the Tigers youth academy, who moved to the Welsh side after catching the eye following a 19-minute hat-trick as an 18 year-old in a 7-0 FA Cup win over Yate Town. A natural finisher now back in his third spell with the club, Parker also does tremendous work for the Tigers in the Community scheme.

 

 

 

 

 

Karnell Chambers (Forward)

Signed with the club in 2016/17 amidst interest from Scottish side Ross County, before impressing on loan at Cinderford Town. After a spell in Sweden, Chambers returned to City and made a real impact in pre-season before signing a contract with the club for the new season.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Edji Mbunga (Forward)

Former Birmingham City man Mbunga signed with City after an impressive pre-season campaign. The pacey striker has a good eye for goal and is naturally strong with the ball at his feet.
