The tax-funded Bath-based university may have cut the sporting budget, therefore killing Team Bath FC, but there was still one vital game for them to play before they shut up shop forever. The ‘students’ had to face their landlords, Bath City – a side who they had never beaten in their 10 year history.

Luckily for my fellow Bath City fans and me, it was 10 games from 10 unbeaten against Team Tax as Somerset’s premier non-league side destroyed their tenants 1-0. The score line may sound close, but the performance was not.

As has been with so many City/Tax encounters, today really was a case of men against boys.

The final whistle blew at 16:50. A Twerton Park, full of City fans and void of any Team Bath supporters, became a caldron of noise, with chants of ‘You’ll never beat The City’ and ‘Cheerio, cheerio, cheerio’. A lovely way to send the defeated students packing – this time for good.

    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.
