Bath City have done it – they’re champions after beaten Yate 2-1. What a day!

The first half was terrible. At half time we were trailing 1-0 and were all worrying about bubbles bursting. The second half was the turnaround. City equalised, and as news filtered around the ground that promotion rivals, Team Bath, were losing we all started to believe again. Promotion became a reality when City scored the winner.

It wasn’t long before the referee blew his whistle to mark the end of the match. This sparked a mass pitch invasion. Hundreds of City fans scaled the metal barriers, climbing onto the dry, dusty pitch, to congratulate their players.

The champagne, which has been on ice for so long, finally came out and the party started. Players, fans and City backroom staff, all partying at Yate’s tin hut of a ground.

The coach journey home was equally erratic, with the driver celebrating the victory by giving us a tour of Bath city centre, sounding the coach horn at every opportunity, leaving tourists and Bath residents looking rather scared.

Jim Rollo – pissed already!


“We’ll never play you again!”

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
