Bath players named in Team of the Week

Seven of your players were selected in the Blue Square South Team of the Week first eleven, including Kyle Letheren, Jared Hodgkiss, Callum Hart, James Nash, Michael Abnett, Amadou Kouman and Dexter Ravenhill.

Another record for the club: 7 players filling out the team of the week. Unfortunately we only drew with Workington in our first FA Trophy outing, so it'll be a return match at our place to clog up the schedule even more. Usually I don't mind replays as a revenue generating exercise, but we're going through a really tough part of the season with 2 games a week for the past 4 weeks. Luckily we have the cover sorted for most of our posisitons now, and no-one important is out with injury.

Picked up another young goalkeeper, more for coverage than squad improvement. Hopefully that will have the keeping position sewn up for the next few seasons.

Seventh heaven for Bath

Bath City 7 - 1 Eastbourne Borough (Blue Square South)

The final score of 7 - 1 didn't flatter Bath City as they totally controlled their Blue Square South game against Eastbourne Borough at Twerton Park. The highlight of the game was undoubtedly a superb hat-trick from Bath's Amadou Kouman.

Midfielder Amadou Kouman gave Bath the lead with a placed shot in the 13th minute. Kouman doubled Bath's lead with a well timed close range finish on 43 minutes.

Kouman added his 3rd goal of the game with a placed shot on 51 minutes. Striker Wayne Gray then added to the lead with a powerful close range effort on 56 minutes.

Centre-back Leon Legge pulled one back for Eastbourne Boro after 60 minutes with a close range header. An error from Dan Smith allowed Gray to score a placed shot from close range. Gray added his 3rd goal of the game with a placed shot on 75 minutes.

Young full-back Matthew Carlisle completed the rout with a placed shot on 80 minutes.

Attendance: 335

Finally some fireworks in the Leaague! We've been keeping our heads above water with a couple of draws and a win or 2, but no form like the top 2 in the league. Hopefully this will take the team onward to fire up another string of wins.
