Bath City’s regular season ended on Saturday, with a 2-0 win away at Billericay, Essex.

However, for the first time in nine years, the Romans reached the play offs!

Unlike with my other club, Leeds, Bath City, do have a history of success in the end of season play offs.

We won them in 2010, don’t you know?

You can tell it was a long time ago, as I’m jumping up and down like a wally. A wally with a daft haircut.

2010’s play off final opponents were Woking. Tonight, we played Wealdstone.

Yes, that Wealdstone…

I seem to recall this man had a catchphrase. I can’t for the life of me remember it.

What was that daft thing, you used to say at school?

“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me”

Sticks and stones may indeed break bones. WealdSTONE are also responsible for breaking Bath City’s play off dreams and the hearts of lots of young children, waving black and white scarves – shame on you.

Wealdstone went ahead, early in the first half of the match, before scoring another in the second half.

The Romans battled on, scoring themselves, despite being reduced to 10 men, following a red card.

It was certainly a mighty effort, but alas, City were unable cancel out their opponent’s goals.

The Romans crashed out of the play offs, at the first step, losing 3-1. Gutting – especially after such a successful season.

Congratulations to Wealdstone. With no shred of sarcasm, I have liked them ever since I watched them play City a few years ago. They are a traditional football club, with some loyal, good natured supporters. I hope they win the Play Offs and get promoted.

Right now, most City fans will no doubt want to go to bed and have a bit of a cry. However, we must not forget the improvements made, over the last 12 months, both on and off the pitch.

If things continue to improve into next season, who knows? We might get lucky and miss out on the play offs altogether… by winning the league!

For now, though, I think I’ll head off to bed. Sob.

    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.
