Target Skuse Exits Bristol City
Thursday, 9th May 2013 11:09
Bristol City have confirmed that Town target Cole Skuse is leaving Ashton Gate this summer. The Blues are believed to have agreed a three-year deal with the 27-year-old.
The relegated Robins also announced the exit of former Blues striker Jon Stead in a statement on their website: “Whilst the club would like to keep hold of Jon Stead and Cole Skuse, they will both depart Ashton Gate this summer.
“Stead is aiming for a move back up north, while Skuse is likely to secure a deal in the Championship.”
Director of football Keith Burt says his club understand why Skuse, who has also been linked with Crystal Palace, has decided to move on: “With Cole, he’s been an exemplary servant for this football club and we fully understand his reasons for moving on at this time in his career.”
Skuse’s terms at Bristol City are officially up on June 30th at which point he will be able to formally put pen to paper elsewhere.

The 21st Minute by pablop
On Easter Monday last year I took my 86-year-old father to his first football match. I had recently moved back from Wiltshire to support my ageing parents. Although not ideal, this did enable me to come to regular home matches having only recently seen Town play at Reading, Bristol or Cardiff and very occasionally at Portman Road.
We Love You and This is the Way We Like It by Pickersblue22
Two games. 180 minutes. That’s all it is. All that stands between us and a place in the top six. Another 180 minutes. The chance of a Wembley final. Possibly against our nearest and not so dearest. It’s all in our hands. We can reach out and touch it. Thirteen years of hurt could be ended. We’re almost there.
Sorry Folks! by stevieiriswattii
For 25 years I have been away from the area and only able to attend a game or so a season, this was after previously being a season ticket holder in the late 80s.
Cole Skuse, In the Middle of Our Pitch by everhopeful
The ball is shifted sideways. There’s space to go forwards, space to meet it, space to shoot. But just as people all around Portman Road begin to lift up in their seats, they realise with an upsetting sense of inevitability – it’s Cole Skuse.
Is It All Over? by paulthebluealien
Sorry, that title is meant to be completely tongue-in-cheek and a slight dig at those Ipswich fans who have suddenly become disillusioned with our promotion push over the course of a single game.
