Bath City F.C., known as The Romans, is a non-league football club based in Bath, a city more commonly associated with rugby. The club, with a history spanning 133 years, regularly draws about 1,000 fans to its matches at Twerton Park. Although it has never been part of the professional leagues, Bath City has experienced significant moments in its history.
In European football, Bath City had notable success in the Anglo-Italian Cup during the 1976/77 season. They defeated prominent Italian teams such as Bari and Parma and reached the final twice, losing to Lecco and then to Udinese in consecutive seasons. These achievements are significant, considering the club’s amateur status.
Domestically, Bath City holds the distinction of being the only semi-professional English team to win a Football League trophy. This occurred during the Second World War in the Division Two Northern Division.
The club also has a unique fan-owned structure, led by the Bath City Supporters Society Ltd. As of August 2022, the club was competing in the National League South, the sixth tier of English football.
