For the first time in a while, I had a free Saturday afternoon due to Bath City having already played on the Friday. I joined a fellow Bath City fan and went to Chippenham to watch their cup game.

Walking past 200+ Chipp fans at their death trap of a ground, I felt like an undercover spy, mixing with the enemy. I passed one man with a drum, dressed head to toe in blue Chippenham Town memorabilia. I was temped to break out in song “Oh, we hate Chippenham, oh we hate Chippenham…” but thought I’d rather not go home in a Wiltshire ambulance, especially after I had paid for a return ticket on the train.

Chippenham were playing Bashley – whoever they are, or where in England they are located, I do not know. ”Bash” were dire and Chippenham won 5-1. A deserved victory, although I noticed many weaknesses in the home teams performance. If we (City) are drawn against Chipp in the FA Cup, I will be advising the Bath City management of my findings.

Saturday evening I joined Simon down the Dolphin pub. It was busy as there was some sporting event on the TV. England were playing France in some minor competition – egg and spoon race I think. It was of absolutely no interest to me, but at least I was able to enjoy a few drinks.

  • 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.
