It was down to Twerton Park again this evening. This time City were taking on some strange, unknown team from League Two known as Hereford. Up until tonight, I knew nothing about them, or where they were even situated in England – in fact I am still unclear – no doubt Leeds will be playing them in a year or two’s time though, following yet another relegation.

Pre-match I met Simon down my local pub, The Dolphin. This time he brought along a posse of his friends in a vain attempt to convert them to non-league football. One didn’t seem to be a massive football fan, the other is a Spurs supporter, so the quality of football seen at non-league level would be nothing new to him.

We had a bite to eat in the pub. I found my choice of BBQ chicken & bacon to be less than satisfactory. While The Dolphin is good and convenient for drinks (and they sell Thatcher’s cider), I think I’ll be sticking to restaurants in town for my food in future.

The match was good. City played well, and considering Hereford are two divisions above Bath and have full time players, it was difficult to tell which team were the pros and which were amateurs. Frustratingly City did lose 1-0, but I think it was still another good performance with an encouraging degree of improvement.

Post-match I got dragged kicking and screaming by Simon to the club’s bar, where yet again he tied me down and force fed me a bottle of Magners, before kicking me out onto Twerton High Street and disappearing into the night with his friends. Luckily I made it home safely, but on my journey back, was startled at the riverside by some animal darting across the pavement in front of me. Due to the poorly lit path, it was hard to tell what creature it was, but I guess it was this…

Finally, for those interested, some poor quality photos from the match. Sorry, it’s the best I could manage with such a crappy camera. If somebody would like to buy me a new one, be my guest.

    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.
