Tivvy’s pre season enters the halfway mark as their 4th game of the pre season campaign see’s National League South side Bath City come to Ladysmead this Tuesday in a 7:30 Kick Off.
Tivvy’s pre season campaign continues with a losing streak as the Yellows lost to Exeter City at the start of the campaign 1-0, then they went onto lose 2-1 to Willand Rovers with a mixture of trialists and first teamers and Friday saw Tivvy suffer a 4-2 loss to Yeovil which in the first half Yeovil had put 4 past Ollie Saunders but Jamie Richards and Jack Rice clawed back a few goals to get on the scoresheet.
Tivvy are now more eager to get a win in the campaign as Bath City visit town on Tuesday night to put all the losses behind them and kick on with some positivity to get the lads ready for the season opener on the 5th August against Basingstoke Town.
Bath’s pre season has given some trial and error for the Romans as they’ve played 4 times so far this month. An early 0-0 draw to Shaftesbury away from home, a 2-0 win away at Badgers Hill as they beat Frome Town started their campaign earlier in the month.
Meanwhile a narrow loss to Bristol City’s U23’s where the main talk was an incredible free kick from Dan Hayfield and drawing with 0-0 with Exeter City have given some confidence to Jerry Gill’s side entering Tuesday’s nights game with Tivvy.
Bath’s transfer window so far has included a few decent signings for the Romans as they have brought in Ben Morgan from National League North side Gloucester City, Luke Russe joins from A4 Rivals Chippenham Town and Jordan Thomas signs from Southern Premier League Division One side North Leigh. Bath have also secured the signing of young goalkeeper Oliver Wright from Southampton who’s set to be a great addition to the side.
With those signings, it should certainly help out Bath strengthen in certain positions but with Tivvy now building confidence and the squad shaking off the early pre season struggles, it will certainly be a competitive game and a good run out.
It will also be nice to see Alex Fletcher make his return to Tiverton this Tuesday as the striker had been ruled out of action for Bath City due to a nasty head collision injury which nearly caused him to have to retire early from football and left him out on the sidelines for several months.
