Can’t have any complaints when you’re beaten by a better side, and they clearly were.  One or two goals were gift wrapped but overall we were second best though we kept going, which is to our credit.  Had the header gone in and not hit the bar at 2-4 then we might have had a grandstand finish but they were clinical and should be up there with Dartford come the end of the season.

I’ll go for 385.  No danger of it being off, we’re never waterlogged, not in my memory anyway.

First time I’ve seen us in action since pre-Covid.  Good to see a nice queue up the slope towards the turnstiles and, once inside, the ground looking very tidy (still don’t like the seats behind the goal but needs must) and the pitch immaculate. A nice pre-match buzz in the splendid new clubhouse and a nice early goal to settle us down - thought the keeper had it covered but he seemed to dive over it from my viewpoint.  Not familiar with a lot of the players though the ones I did know turned out to be pivotal.  Henry, Richards & Parselle - all immense - they had to be.  Poole gave it a right go and had us on the back foot for large parts of the match, and our formation of seemingly playing a lone striker up front was clearly not working, although you have to give Poole credit for continually forcing us back I guess.  Overall I came away feeling we were fortunate not to be enduring extra-time at least and I almost felt sorry for Poole…..almost.
As for the attendance, not surprised.  Poole brought a decent following, but we haven’t had big midweek attendances for quite some time have we? (Those with stats at their fingertips will be able to shed some light on that no doubt.) And a neutral watching that last night might not be rushing back to pay another £13 for another dose.  
All that said it’s great we’ve got a home tie in the next round, and as long as we don’t blow it anything can happen.  Another step closer to my dream draw of Swindon at home in the First Round proper. 😉

And if you want a proper game on Saturday afternoon Calne Town play Bashley in the FA Cup (don’t think it’s quite the semi-final yet) ko 3pm, where numerous players attached to the Bluebirds, past and present, will be in action.

And a very attractive league it is too.  Mousehole in the Western League is not an attractive proposition for clubs in our neck of the woods so the Hellenic is by far the better option.

From the Bath forum........tweeted by Ollie Bayliss

National League clubs have been asked if they will support an EGM to debate this resolution:

"The meeting has no confidence in the Chairman and the Board."

The EGM is being proposed by Maidstone United and Dorking Wanderers.

Clubs have been asked to respond by 12pm Wednesday.
