Sell Out Shows How Far Bath Have Come Says Boss Jerry

Jerry Gill says the fact Bath City’s meeting with Yeovil Town is long sold out is a nod to how far the club have come in recent years.

The Romans manager is proud of progress on and off the pitch and can’t wait to see a packed out Twerton Park.

Bath are competing at the right end of the Vanarama National League South and won’t let Saturday’s collapse against Chelmsford City distract from the progress made.

Gill has been in charge for over six years and says huge strides have been made since he walked through the door back in October 2017.

He fancies their chances against the league leaders, who saw their lead cut to three points last night when Maidstone United defeated Truro City.

“It’s a first complete sell out in years,” the manager said ahead of the match with the Glovers. It says everything about how far we have come as a club.

“It’s a local derby and it should be a fantastic game of football. Twerton Park under the lights is always special, but this one will be electric.

“When you see the place packed out as you walk out, it fills you with pride and passion that only our ground can give you.”

He knows his team must be better than they were at the weekend, throwing away a 2-0 lead at home to Chelmsford City and they came away with nothing.

“There’s a lot of wounds we will have to lick before the game," he concluded. "It wasn’t a Bath City performance to proud of on Saturday.

“In fact, it was our worst performance of the season. The better side won but there’s a manner in how you lose and we didn’t do it the right way. At 2-0 and not playing your best, the elite sides manage the game."
