Last night, I attended the launch of the Big Bath City Bid. In short, this is a campaign for the community to takeover Bath City Football Club, by purchasing shares.

The event was very well supported, with hundreds of Bath City fans and members of the Bath public in attendance.

A sell out!

Many well-known faces were in attendance, backing the bid. These included film director Ken Loach (a frequent face on the Bath City terraces), Jason Dodd (once a Bath City youth player, better known for his years at Southampton FC) and perhaps most famous of all, Ian Holloway. You don’t know who he is? The bald, Bristolian football manager who is always laughing and joking. He’s a legend by the way. I met him in Asda once, don’t you know?

Claire and I went to event as fans of the club, simply wanting to be kept informed of what was going on. We shared the attitude “We give too much money to the club already – there is no chance we’ll be buying shares in this”. After the supurb presentation, we wondering how on earth we could raise £250 each to buy shares in what will hopefully be an amazing project, bringing great success to the football club.

I’m not going to try and sell the thing to my readers. Unlike those last night, I can’t do it justice. However, if you are in the slightest bit interested – even if you have NO plans to get involved – check out the Big Bath City Bid website and see what it’s all about.

  • 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.
