Out of the Cup

Made it to the 4th round of the FA Trophy and managed to keep Luton to a 1-1 all draw at our place, but they turned on the style in the reverse match. Harty is the newest addition to the squad, a solid goalkeeper found in Ireland. He's had an immediate influence on the team and we've enjoyed a run of 10 league games without loss. Still in mid-table though...
Luton Town 2 - 0 Bath City (FA Trophy 4th Rnd)

Bath City failed to cause an upset at Kenilworth Road as Luton Town coasted to an expected 2 - 0 victory.

Experienced striker Steve Basham gave Luton the lead with a well timed close range finish in the 14th minute. Then followed controversy as Luton were denied claims by young striker Ryan Charles for a penalty.

Striker Tom Craddock finally rounded off their victory on 85 minutes with a good header from just inside the six-yard box.

Another reset ...

Played on for a month or so, but lost the lot in another crash from running out of virtual memory. Going to have to save every week ...
Starting up again and there's a patch on the way down. Hope if fixes the leaks.

City improve to smash Seagulls

New Year's Day celebrations were ours on the field as we returned to form over Weston-super-Mare. Been a bit of an awkward spell over the last couple of matches. No real focus on our core task and no real way to shake them out of it. We lost Browning for the rest of the season with a hip injury, which might end up being the last he'll play. The search now will be for a replacement in midfield with an eye for passing to fill the gap.

We had slumped back to 19th after getting up as far as 13th, but a tight grouping of teams means this win has taken us back to 15th:
Bath City have beaten Weston-super-Mare 3 - 0 to record their first win in the Blue Square South for four games.

City's much-needed win put on hold any fears of dropping into a relegation dogfight and will provide hope that this will signal a turn around in their fortunes and present a more respectable position in the top half.
