City v Torquay United Match Preview

Twerton Park will be the place to be on Saturday afternoon as third-placed Bath City take on league leaders Torquay United in the Vanarama National League South. Kick off – 3PM!

The Gulls have sold out their 1450 away ticket allocation and with hordes of Romans likely to descend on Twerton Park it’s going to be an atmosphere like no other and a game you’ll not want to miss! Jerry Gill’s men are currently unbeaten in seven and have kept five straight clean sheets and they’ll be looking to produce another fine display when Gary Johnson’s side visit Twerton.

Torquay United were relegated from the National League last season and their start to life in the National League South under former City boss, Gary Owers failed to meet the club’s expectations. Owers’ dismissal in September 2018 led to the arrival of the experienced Gary Johnson at Plainmoor. The former Bristol City gaffer has since had the Midas touch at the south coast club and his side have yet to lose a game in the league since his arrival and are currently on a ten game winning streak.

It’s set up to be a thrilling afternoon of football at Twerton Park as two in-form sides go head-to-head in a top of the table clash! Bring friends and family and get behind The Romans as they hunt down the league’s table-toppers.

‘Get behind the City and enjoy the game!’
