We will be hosting a pre-season match against Bristol City U21s on Tuesday 23rd July 2024, which will serve as Ray Cashley’s testimonial.
Ray played 262 games for the Robins and 101 games for the Seagulls during his legendary playing career.
He has also worked for Weston over the past 37 years running the club’s lottery, collecting over £2 million during this time.
Oli Bliss, Managing Director at Weston-super-Mare AFC, said: “I have known Ray for as long as I can remember.
“Ray joined Weston-super-Mare with my Dad (Paul Bliss) in 1986 as a player – Everyone knows what a good player he was, playing at the top flight with Bristol City.
“When his footballing career came to an end, he was looking for a new career and my Dad offered him our lottery and later on our striker draw collections.
“He is such an easy man to work with. He just carries on with his work without any fuss. He is so reliable and is so down to earth.
“There are many times that people have asked me is that Ray Cashley because they see Ray as their hero from his Bristol City days. It is great to see these
people then asking Ray about his career and Ray is always so happy to talk to anyone.
“He is not quite as fit as he used to be but he still managed to show us what he could do in goal at the age of 64 when he played in my Dad’s testimonial in 2016. He was able to save a penalty and get straight back up for the rebound.
“It is an honour for the club and our family to be able to organise this testimonial for Ray – He fully deserves it.”
This is match is part of our men’s first team pre-season schedule, with games against Exeter City, Slimbridge, Tiverton Town and Yeovil Town already confirmed. The full pre-season fixture list will be announced soon.
