Webby was for many seasons the main creative force in the City side and also a
consistent goalscorer whose highlights included a hatrick against Merthyr in 96/7,
along with City's goal in a 1-1 derby draw at Ch@#tenham the same season. Was a
constant threat from dead ball situations but will be best remembered running at defenders or exchanging quick passes on the
edge of the penalty area. As recently as summer 1997 Webby was the subject of a
bid from Ch@#tenham and other clubs in the Conference, but decided to stay on a
further two seasons with City.
Had originally been brought in to the club by Brian Godfrey and played an
important part in the side that was minutes from the league title, but never
quite held down a regular spot in the team. Returned to Meadow Park having
impressed at Trowbridge, but then saw his City career halted by an
horrific broken leg sustained in pre-season 1994/5. Showed characteristic
determination to return to football after a long lay off, and returned to the
side in blistering form. Was a key part in several teams that played quick
exciting passing football, linking well with the likes of Adebowale and Knight,
then in arguably his best campaign with Burns and Watkins in the side that
reached the Trophy semis.
Was plagued with groin trouble for several seasons and eventually seemed simply
too slow and lacking in his previous ingenuity too cut it. Even so many City
fans were surprised to see him head for lowly Highworth Town when he was released
in May 1999.
