We Are Going Up... We Hope

Bath City FC got the job done away at Chelmsford last weekend with a 1-0 win (3-0 aggregate), which means we are going to the Conference South Playoff Final. Its not quite as exciting as is it sounds (well, it is!), its not a trip to Wembley or anything, but its still set to be a grand day out, hopefully ending in City's promotion to the lofty heights of the Blue Square Premier. I personally cannot wait for Sunday (kickoff is at 2pm if you can make it!) and I'm praying for a City win.

Woking are the visitors to Twerton Park, who have had a rather topsy turvy season. After starting the season well, they had a bit of a torrid time after Christmas but managed to completely turn it around in April, winning 7 in a row to rocket them back into a playoff place. Woking knocked Dover out of over two legs and thoroughly deserve their place in the final on Sunday. Bath were victorious in both meetings during the regular season, including a spanking 5-0 win at Twerton Park on the 1st of December. Here's hoping for a repeat result this weekend!

With promotion on the line, it's set to be a frantic finish to the season. City will be hoping they can battle to just one more victory, arguably the most important match in the club's history, certainly for decades. Lets hope the lads can get it done.

I know I will certainly be there on Sunday cheering them on - the crowd is expected to be over 3000! I'm sure it'll be a brilliant day... so long as City win!

Thanks for reading
