Bath City, Fleetwood and Grimsby Town joined the Stags in the Blue Square Bet Premier this weekend.

Grimsby were relegated from League Two after a 3-0 capitulation at Burton. Fleetwood beat Alfreton 2-1, while Bath beat Woking 1-0, to earn promotion from BSN and BSN respectively.

It was a good game at Twerton Park, Bath. Visitors Woking were a bit unlucky with a shot off the inside of the post in the first half by Ademola. Bath hit the outside of the post before half time.

Bath's goal came from a penalty by former Forest Green striker Kaid Mohamed after a foul by Woking keeper Ross Worner. On another day Worner could have been sent off. Woking came back straongly in the last 10 minutes as Ademola missed a complete sitter missed, and then Woking had a goal disallowed in debateable fashion in the last minute.

Bath will be a great venue for a weekend next season. Some photos below of the city and Twerton Park.

Bizarre moment of the day: waiting for the bus back from the ground to the city after all the celebrations and post match interviews, and being joined by the Bath sub Hector Mackie wearing his winner's medal. Had a long chat with him at the bus stop and on the bus. He is looking forward to visiting Field Mill.

It was my first visit to Twerton Park since seeing the Stags draw 0-0 with Bristol Rovers in February 1989.
