Ryan Gannaway - Goalkeeper

Debut : Grantham Town (H) - 14/08/99

Last Game : Cinderford Town (A) - 13/01/01

Gloucester born goalkeeper who made his debut as a twenty-five year old following a spell as reserve at Cheltenham Town.

Having previously represented both Forest Green and Shortwood United he only made a handful of appearances for the Whaddon Road club as understudy to Steve Book, although he was between the sticks on Boxing Day 1996 when Dale Watkins lobbed him in injury time to set up a famous 2-1 win for the Tigers. He stayed with the Robins for a further two seasons and was part of the squad that won promotion to the Football League and the FA Trophy at Wembley.

Therefore his signature for City in the summer of 1999 was somewhat underwhelming and was, along with Jimmy Smith never warmed to at Meadow Park.

Legend has it that Gannaway enraged City manager Brian Hughes before one game when at the start of the team talk asked "So, who are we playing today?"

With relegation beckoning Gannaway quit the Tigers in February 2000 citing a need to be with his family, before playing for Shortwood on the following Saturday. He was tempted back to Meadow Park in the summer of 2000 by new manager Tommy Callinan but left the club after losing his place to Ali Hines.
