Simon the Gooner dared to come out and watch some real football this evening – Bath City v Cheltenham Town in a pre-season friendly. I met him at the local delicatessen as we both thought we would try some local pre-match pies. After eating, we walked down to Twerton Park and I picked up my season ticket. Look at it – beautiful.

With an hour to kill before kick off, we went into the club’s bar, Charlie’s, where Simon surprised me by ordering himself a bottle of Magners. I went for a bottle of the City Ale – after all, it’s been two months since I last tried some.

As for the game, it finished 4-0 to Cheltenham – absolute proof that you must not take pre-season friendlies too seriously – the result did not reflect the performance. City did well, and if it weren’t for the fact Cheltenham play their football three divisions higher, and have a fulltime squad, the result could have been a lot closer.

I should be off to Melksham on Thursday for an away friendly. Hopefully I’ll have some City goals to blog 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.
