According to the official Bath City FC web site, it looks like Andy Watkins will sign for Bath City (subject to paperwork).  The club has been after Watkins for some time and it looks like they have now managed to land him.  The news will be greeted with sadness of course, because he is another hero from the Golden Era.  It's inevitable that more players will leave and we just have to brace ourselves as the meltdown continues.  We have to look on the positive side though and hope that the rebuilding will start with a new set of heroes...
