No, this isn’t another blog about a breakfast cereal that has left our supermarket shelves. It is about how I believe I am Bath City’s lucky charm.

Since winning the league in 2007, I have missed a handful of Bath City games – all of which have ended in a humiliating defeat or a boring 0-0 draw. Not one win.

In short, I have never missed a Bath City victory since their promotion. You could say all their success is down to me… maybe 🙂

Lucky Charms

Here is further proof as to why my theory is correct…

Tonight, Bath City played Lewes – a team sitting deep in the depths of the division and in dire straights. I didn’t really fancy the midweek trip to the other side of the country for various reasons – financial, free time and my general sanity.

From the warmth of my flat, I was getting text updates from fans at the game. When City took the lead early on, I was convinced my record of never missing a victory was about to be broken. Then, shortly after the start of the second half, I received a rather alarming text message…

No, we hadn’t conceded five goals in a minute. Nor had our two star players collided, resulting in four shattered legs. The message I received read ‘Game called off’

Apparently, the south east of England has been subject to some torrential downpours which saw the game abandoned.

The Gods were watching. With no fulltime score, my record continues.

I certainly will not be crowing with delight, though. Not only was the game abandoned after City had taken an important lead, but both the players and fans will need to make the 7-hour round trip on another Wednesday night next month.

I am off to bed now, but I suspect it will be a long time before the poor souls who made the journey tonight are able to get to theirs. Truly gutting.

  • 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.
