I’m off to Wales this afternoon to watch Bath City play Newport yet again. It is City’s 4th visit to Spytty Park since October. Somehow the cup draws have seen us having to travel to their ground in every possible competition – the league, FA Cup, Setanta Shield, and today, The FA Trophy. I am sure if Newport relocated 50 miles east, we would get them in the Somerset Cup too.

Newport hasn’t been the nicest place to go. A small minority of the locals have taken a dislike to City’s success at their ground, and tried to go all “Italian Ultras” on us. They’re big softies really, and with the Christmas spirit in the Welsh air, hopefully it’ll be an enjoyable match… which City will win :o)

I was disappointed with Bath City not even reaching the 1st Round of FA Cup this year, so a run in the FA Trophy would be nice. In recent years, Bath City have been a bit like a bad teabag – they haven’t stayed in the cup very long.

    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.
