Gary Grogan

Donation protected
Ex-Cambridge City Striker and Southern League Winner, Gary Grogan was recently rushed into Addenbrookes Hospital, he was operated on straight away due to an aneurysm in his leg which caused a blood clot. If he had not had the operation straight away chances are that he would have lost his leg, and the outcome would have been a lot worse if he hadn't made it to the hospital. He had also suffered a second aneurysm in his stomach which was also operated on.

Three operations and three weeks in hospital have taken their toll on Gary but thanks to his strength of character and the amazing doctors and staff, he is now doing well, and has been allowed home for the time being, but the treatment is ongoing.

Those that were lucky enough to watch Gary play at Cambridge City FC will remember a man that epitomised the team spirit that flowed through the club during his time at the Lilywhites. He gave his all for the shirt and was a fan favourite for many years.

Gary played his 706 games (most appearances all time), scored 227 goals (2nd all time goals)
made his debut 3/10/1981 and played his last game 7/5/1994. GAry Truly is a City Legend

"Gary was a giant on a man at centre forward, I remember watching him as a 10 year old and being in total awe of this big blonde haired goal machine, He inspired me to follow my passion and become a footballer and I can never thank him enough for the influence he had on me"
~Robbie Nightingale

"As a nervous 18 year coming into the City Side, Gary was the one player who really encouraged me, told me to be confident in my ability and just do what I was good at. He never berated he only ever gave me positive feedback and I'll never forget it. He is/was loved by everyone who was associated with the club at the time and even the opposing fans used to enjoy watching him play. What really stood out for me was that I don't think he ever realised how good he was, it's a rare quality in a footballer and it made him an even better player. He lead the line with passion and commitment and never backed down from a challenge, even against some really physically tough opponents. " ~Steve "Butch" Gawthrop

Now Gary and his wife Nicole and their family need our support. We want to help Gary get back on his feet, the same way he helped so many players who wore the White shirt.
