Thanks Junior!

Many teenage City fans will be wondering what an 'FA Cup run' means !

Well done Mark, lovely interview, Rickos passion for the club comes through, especially reflecting on the likes of Cheltenham and Yeovil progression. Latter was unsurprising, but Cheltenham hurts a bit tbh.

The interviews with Jim Rollo, Billy Clark and Adie Mings are also up now.

Won’t do any for a couple of weeks now.

BBC Sports has an article about a cat halting a major baseball game.  Those of a more mature vintage can (possibly) recall that a dog on the pitch used to be a fairly regular occurrence at TP.
Thinking of this also reminds me of when we used to host greyhound racing.

Of course in recent years we had the Whippet, but greyhound racing......bloomin sharp corners!

Another great interview, this time with Adie Mings. His love for the Club really comes across and he has some great anecdotes.

The next one is out tomorrow with Adie Britton.

Advanced warning that I’ll have to delete a couple from SoundCloud to make room so if you haven’t listened to any now’s the time!

Looking forward to this. Always had a lot of respect for Adie. Part of a very successful period in City’s history

The 4-0 win against Cambridge United that season has to be one of the best all round performances by a City side in a long time, with Kaid just about unplayable.

Just listened and it brought back great memories of that first season in National League. I think the 1-0 win at Barrow and the 1-1 draw at Gateshead on a Monday night were memorable for us away fans who made the long journeys. Also the New Years Day last minute winner at Newport was special.
I always think that Adie would still have a lot to offer Bath City assuming a role could be found and - if he would still be interested.

Yes, totally agree, what a game that was, and serenading the Cambridge boss that he was 'getting sacked in the morning', though it took a bit longer than that...it was 3 days later !

Totally agree. During the Bid process we tapped into his knowledge a couple of times when he was kind enough to meet us and he had some very interesting things to say about how the structure at the Club needed to be improved. As he touched on in the interview there has been considerable progress in that area since.

Should we win promotion to the top level I think those who are still at the Club would be able to draw on that past experience and any input from Adie would be invaluable.

Thanks Junior for another great interview and bringing back memories of such a memorable season!

I always thought Adie didn't get the appreciation he deserved. Instead of being remembered for taking us back to the Conference and playing clubs mentioned in the interview, people think too much about the end of his tenure - relegation and the poor start the following season, staying on alongside Arch. I thought on and off the pitch he was a great asset.

I've only seen him at one game since - the Knaphill cup one when Jim was in caretaker charge. I believe Adie was at the cricket and had a call asking if he'd scout on them, so he left the game early, went to Surrey and provided info. I don't think many former managers would go out their way.

The final podcast will be up this evening, it's a chat with Jerry Gill about his career as he played his final game for us 25 years ago today.

Just listened to the interview with Jerry - impossible not to be swept along by his enthusiasm.
