Bath City Football Club

Do Bath City Football Club have a future in Twerton is a question that has been on every ones mind for a long time now?

It is very clear that Bath City have severe financial constraints and are considering every option available to them.

The Club have been a cornerstone in Twerton for many years and the thought of not having them around is a real prospect that is being addressed through discussions that your Councillors are having with the club itself.

The ideal solution for Twerton is that the club will survive and prosper in Twerton and be able to put their ground in good order, but we have to have the alternatives in mind and we will continue working for the best Solution for the club and Twerton its self.

Cllr Manda Rigby, Chairman Bath City FC
 has written to us and we publish below her words to us.

Bath City Club Bath City FC has been a part of Twerton life since 1909, but now is sadly going to have to move as the ground is no longer fit for purpose, and would cost too much to upgrade without adding on some other commercial activity which would not suit Twerton as a community, or would require more space than we currently own. The trick will be to get the best result for Twerton in terms of what will replace the ground and all the community assets it now offers. 

I am happy to talk to any and all community groups from the area, and have been discussing options with your ward Councillors, and have a sincere hope that this move overall can prove positive for 

all...attract some new activity, money, and regeneration into Twerton, whilst securing the future of the football club for the long term. 

In the meanwhile, we are here for the foreseeable future, so please book your events with us, enjoy the facilities, use the wonderful market, support the team.
