On the same afternoon that saw Leeds United effectively relegated to League One, Bath City played out their last day of the season, beating Rugby Town 6-0.

After the game, a presentation took place. The players were all given winners medals and handed the league shield. I have never seen a football trophy that big – it was larger than the European Cup! After a lot of singing and champagne, there was a pitch invasion where fans and players congratulated one another in wonderful scenes.

I have been to most of City’s home games this season – the only ones I have missed were when I was watching Leeds. Non-league football differs so much from the big, money orientated professional game. There is more respect between the fans and the club. The players give their all and always have time for the supporters.

I have fallen in love with my little local club, the fans and the players. Roll on next season!

Here are some photos from the day.

“Hoggy! Hoggy! Hoggy!”

“It’s Macca! Macca is back!!”

It’s just like watching Brazil

We Are The Champions!

We beat both Man Utd and Chelsea to the title!

Another pitch invasion!

  • 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.
