Six of the best for Bath

Bath City 6 - 0 Wrexham (Blue Square Premier)

The final score of 6 - 0 didn't flatter Bath City as they totally controlled their Blue Square Premier game against Wrexham at Twerton Park. A brace from Billy Paynter helped Bath to victory.

Striker Billy Paynter got Bath off to a flyer by scoring a placed shot on 2 minutes. Guy had no trouble in scoring from the spot when Obeng conceded a penalty. Murray scored with a powerful effort in the 20th minute to extend the lead further. An error from Michael Jackson allowed Paynter to score a powerful effort.

Broomfield then increased Bath's advantage further with a powerful effort on 50 minutes. There were no prizes for guessing who completed the rout on 89 minutes as that man Broomfield popped up again with a placed shot.

Attendance: 624

After playing a rematch vs Chester to win through to the FA Trophy semis, we didn't have enough in the tank for Grays Athletic. We lost 0-3 and never looked in the game. With more FA Trophy matches clogging up the schedule, I pulled in another 2 loans; Seb Broomfield as a cover for our overworked strikers, and Matthew Dolan as left back and cover for our central defenders.

Both put in great performances dispite their lack of fitness and lack of preparation, but it was Paynter and Murray that really got the show on the road. Lots of direct chances, and it could easily have been more. By 1/2 time I let the guys rest it up as we had 4 in the bag and a busy week ahead.
