Tomorrow morning, I make one of the longest trips in my football supporting career. I am travelling all the way from Twerton Park, Bath to Dover – the far south east of England.

Dover is so far away, it is almost in France. I suppose tomorrow afternoon’s game is the closest Bath City will ever get to playing a European Cup tie.

After visiting the various pick up points on route, the journey will amount to a 400 mile round trip. Such a distance could see me take a one way trip to Paris, get 1/600th of the way to the moon, drive all the way to Glasgow, walk 60% of all the roads in London, or make up a years worth of walking from my flat to work and back home again.

Dover are top of the league and doing very well. Bath City have been struggling a bit of late and sit uncomfortably midtable. A sensible betting man wouldn’t place a penny on the boys from Somerset getting anything from the game. Hopefully the players will prove the pundits (and me) wrong, upset the odds and make the mammoth journey worthwhile.

  • 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.
