Bath City boss Jerry Gill is calling for a season best crowd to turn out and get behind the Romans when they go into battle against National South leaders Wealdstone.
Gill and City director John Reynolds have issued a joint-rallying call to fans ahead of Saturday’s first versus fifth clash at Twerton Park.
Both told the club’s website they shouldn’t have to try too hard for the mouth-watering clash with the Romans unbeaten at home since August and the visiting Stones having only suffered three defeats all season.
Gill, pictured, said: “It’s great that so many people are making a habit of getting along to Twerton Park on a regular basis these days.
“To see that crowds are up another 10 percent so far this season is terrific. I know they’re all big matches but this really is a big one and the fact they’ll be well supported means I’m really keen to see the Roman Army out in numbers.
“So please can everyone make that extra effort to come along and to bring their mates. It really is a special place to be under the lights and with a rocking atmosphere – and it transmits straight to the boys on the pitch. See you Saturday.”
Twerton-born Reynolds urged fans not to miss out on seeing the league’s top two sides go head-to-head with City enjoying one of their best starts to a season in a long time.
“We’re having a great season and playing some of the best football I’ve ever seen at Twerton Park – and that’s over 60 years man and boy,” said the director.
“We know they’ll bring a lot of fans, so I’m asking for the people of Bath to make the effort to come down to Twerton on Saturday and make sure we more than match them with our vocal support for the team.
“This is a great team that Jerry has assembled, with young lads playing out of their skins. And the sight and sound of a packed Twerton Park in good voice could be just the extra boost they need to get a win on Saturday. Up the Romans!”
Appointed in October 2017, Gill penned a new deal in March to keep him at Bath City until 2021.
