Whilst semi-looking for a place to walk on a slightly overcast Saturday lunchtime, I happened to spot that local team The Stiffs FC of the Trowbridge & District League were hosting Trowbridge Tigers. It was a 1pm kick off in the nearby village of Steeple Ashton. I cleared it with my other half and we loaded up the car with our 10 month old boy. As this was hastily arranged, and with a baby in tow I only caught the 20 minutes or so before half time, but was treated to a couple of really good goals from the visitors. The first a decent one-on-one finish, followed by a great top corner finish which may have taken a very slight deflection. I learned after that these goals but the Tigers in the lead after trailing. The home side eventually won 4-3 but it did seem like a close encounter. I certainly hope to re-visit properly for a fixture in the near future, not least for the spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.
