Bath City finally won a game after what seemed like an eternity (it was in fact only 5 weeks, but when you’re used to such attractive football, you miss the victories).

The game was played on a sunny, yet crisp winter’s afternoon. Welling, who had already beaten City earlier in the season, have been struggling this season and were fortunate to get a victory back in September.

From the kick off, there only looked like one winner and before the half time interval, fans’ favourite Scott Partridge gave City a lead with a superb goal. Scotty had only recently returned from a nasty neck injury which kept him out for almost 9 months and even threatened to end his career.

Those fans that feared the shiny–headed striker had lost his skill had their worries erased in the second half when Scotty scored an absolute cracker of a goal – one of the best I have ever seen at Twerton Park. Had that Ronaldo child scored it, Sky Sports would be playing it repeatedly for weeks to come. It really had to be seen to be believed.

The goal was followed by a celebration Arsenal’s Emmanuel Adebayor would be proud of. Instead of running around the ground like an aeroplane, hugging his team mates or performing a circus trick; he stood still, staring at the crowd as if to say “Yes. I really am THAT good!” His pose didn’t last long, as he was launched into the air by his celebrating team mates, just as thrilled by the goal as the ecstatic fans.

The game ended 2-0. 2 goals. 3 points. Back in the play offs. Proper job.

    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.
