The football season is back. Well kind of. It is the return of the pre-season friendlies. The proper stuff doesn’t start until next month.

So far, I have struggled to get too excited about the warm-up games, having only attended one match this July – a Tuesday night trip to Twerton Park where I watched a team, compiled mainly of unknown trialists, lose 2-1 to Hayes & Yeading United.


Tomorrow will be different. I am off to Wiltshire to watch City play Swindon Supermarine in another friendly. Like in the ‘real’ league fixtures, away games are much more enjoyable – especially if it is a new ground.

Not being a well-travelled being, visiting football grounds is one of the few ways I get to see new places in Britain. When Bath City eventually get into The Champions League, I will be able to extend my travels to Europe too.

Oh, and in case any of you were wondering, yes I have been to Swindon before. Like everyone who grew up in the West Country, I have been to The Oasis, for numerous school birthday parties. However, I have never seen Swindon Supermarine play football, so can neither confirm nor deny if they are a team made up of marine soldiers.


Could Bath City be facing these tomorrow?

    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.
