Pen Pic:  
Fergie has been a totally committed force behind the City team, no less so as Brian Hughes' assistant manager than he was as a long serving player. He had announced his retirement from playing at the end of the 1998/99 season, but was forced back into regular service in September 1999 by the financial problems that decimated the playing squad. Unfortunately sometimes found wanting for lack of pace, but whilst it was a shame to see such a great player forced to play beyond the point when he can fully do himself justice he has still shown more than occasional flashes of the old class. Indeed, his late FA Cup winner against Weymouth in September '99 was one of the highlights of a dismal season. Not bad for someone playing on only pride and expenses... Left on principle when Hughes got the sack at the end of February 2000.
Fergie was a highly respected player on the non-league circuit, and his contacts were a vital asset to the club.  Formerly a prolific striker Fergie enjoyed a prolonged lease of life as a wiley centre back. In 97/98 he was also given the additional role of coach under Leroy Rosenior, having previously had some experience of management at Worcester much earlier in his career. Playing in goal for much of the second half of April '98's derby game against former club Worcester meant Fergie can claim to have filled every position for City at some point in his career at the club. 
When Brian Godfrey originally purchased Fergie in 1991 he was City's record buy at 25,000, and as the division's leading scorer his arrival signaled the club's Conference ambitions. The seemingly  inevitable subsequent economic crisis of summer '91 saw him swiftly sold with Brendan Hackett for a cut price combined fee of 12,000 to Conference side Telford.
