For the first time in almost 20 years, Bath City FC played a live game in front of the national television cameras.

The match against Histon was shown on Premier Sports – not a very popular channel on Sky and one you need to pay extra for – a little bit like the special interest ones you get if you stray too far beyond the radio stations.

Due to a major rollout of an IT system at work and a subsequent annual leave freeze, I couldn’t attend the game, but was able to watch it live on television.

The last time Bath City were on TV was against Hereford in the FA Cup in 1993. They won the game 2-1, the same scoreline City beat Histon by tonight.

Long term readers of my blog may remember Histon from a few years ago. They were the team made up of butchers, bakers, candlestick makers and postmen who beat Leeds United in the cup back in 2008. Dark days.

Luckily Bath City avenged Leeds’ defeat and climbed into the top half of the table. I am going to bed happy.

    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.
