Yesterday, I travelled Kent, to watch Bath City against Ebbsfleet United. It was a long way to go, we had to leave early and we got back late. City could have had an even longer trip, to Hartlepool, in the FA Cup, had we not lost 7-1 to East Thurrock two weeks earlier.

Ebbsfleet’s ground is situated close to the Eurostar train station. I think we were probably closer to France than we were to Bath.

If it had rained or snowed and the game had been called off, we could have jumped on the Eurostar and gone to watch Paris Saint-Germain. I may have had a problem, though, as I didn’t take my passport with me.

It didn’t rain or snow, so we did get to watch Ebbsfleet.

Football coach Liam Daish used to manage Ebbsfleet and was very popular with their fans. Bath City’s management team, pictured below, are not as popular with the Twerton Park faithful (although I like them), so I don’t think there will be an ADIE BRITTON STAND built anytime soon…

It was a very entertaining game, against a team which are near the top of the league, hoping to get promoted and spending lots of money. Any betting man, would place his money on an Ebbsfleet win.

Although if you had placed £10 on a home win, you would have lost £10, as Bath City drew 0-0. A fair result, although I am an optimistic fan and always think City can beat anyone, I was a bit disappointed that they didn’t win.

  • 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.
