David 'Boris' Mehew has become something of a legend in local football after his long spell at Bristol Rover where he was a firm fans favourite during some of the club's best seasons, a reputation undamaged by spending the twilight years of his playing career playing non-league football in the area. His arrival at City as Tim Harris' managerial assistant could have been seen as a risk for both sides but Mehew has settled in well at Meadow Park, quickly gaining the confidence and trust of players with his coaching know-how. Has also been able to bolster City's squad, immediately bringing young stars Tom Hamblin and Aaron Wilson from former club Bristol Manor Farm. Mehew has also unexpectedly found himself featuring in the City playing squad on occasion, but having formally hung up his boots such brief cameo appearances have to be seen as a sign the City squad is fully stretched.

David Mehew's appointment as assistant manager to City boss Tim Harris was announced on 18th May 2006, the former Bristol Rovers legend taking up a vacancy created after Chris Smith resigned the post to commit more time to his family. Mehew hadn't worked with Tim Harris before but the pair have quickly forged a good coaching team, with Mehew's professional experience earning instant respect from players and also bringing with him a wealth of contacts built up in a long career at many levels of west country football. Mehew has already earned a solid reputation as a coach in spells as assistant to Frank Gregan at Conference South club Weston-super-Mare and in a short time working with former Clevedon boss Steve Fey at Western League side Bristol Manor Farm.

Mehew's playing career saw him gain national and regional prominance with over 200 club appearances for Bristol Rovers where his attacking displays from the wing or central midfield made him a firm favourite with Gas fans who remember him with great fondness. He started out with Leeds United but never made the side at Elland Road, moving to Rovers in exile at Twerton Park for first team football. After a seven year stay with Rovers under Bobby Gould and Gerry Francis he went on to play briefly with Walsall and Exeter City before leaving the professional game and enjoying brief stints with Yate Town, Bath City, prolifically at Farnborough Town and Rushden in the Conference and more settled spells at Trophy finalists Forest Green Rovers and then Bath City. The last few seasons saw Mehew appear for Clevedon and Brislington before ending his playing career at Weston-super-Mare where he linked back up with former Forest Green boss Frank Gregan who gave him his first coaching opportunity.
