Reg Weaver - Centre Forward / Outside or Inside Right

D.O.B. - 14/09/1905 Clutton, Somerset
D.O.D. - Qu3 1970 Gloucester

Debut : 28/08/1937 v Birmingham ‘A’ (H), Won 4-1 (scored four)
Last Game : Worcester City (H) - 16/11/1946, Lost 4-6 (scored two)

His goal scoring exploits are the stuff of Gloucester City folklore, with 103 goals in 84 appearances Reg Weaver has the best scoring rate in the history of the football club.

Arguably one of the finest footballers ever to grace a Gloucester City line-up, Weaver played for Chelsea in the First Division and along with spells at Wolverhampton Wanderers and Newport County, scoring 61 goals in the Football League in 119 appearances.

During his four seasons at Stamford Bridge the club were promoted and consolidated a top division place, and arguably his finest moments for the West London club came on a South American tour in 1929.

The striker played in some of the world’s greatest stadia; including on the land of the Maracana in Rio De Janeiro, then a Horse Racing arena, the El Monumental in Buenos Aires and played in one of the first ever matches at the Estadio Centenario, home of the soon-to-be World Champions Uruguay and host of the 1930 World Cup final.

Stints at Bradford City, Chesterfield and a return to Newport County followed before the Somerset native joined local side Bath City, where he once scored nine goals in one game against Devizes Town.

After two years in Bath he moved to join Gloucester City where he scored 67 goals in his debut season, including 10 hat-tricks. The Second World War split his time at the club, including a brief spell at Cheltenham Town, before returning for a final spell at the age of 41. He finished his career at the company he worked for, Rotol.

e remains one of only three men to score over 100 goals for Gloucester City and is undoubtedly one of the finest forwards to ever play for the club.
