I raised this topic about a week ago at the time there were exactly 5015 unsold tickets this morning there are 4946 that’s just 69 tickets sold in a week.....i don’t know what the ground capacity so no chance of estimating the attendance.....

I know many will leave buying a ticket to the day of the match.....indeed let’s hope the case ....

Not surprised about the lack of interest. The main website not updated for about three weeks. Just complacent again and expect the regulars just to turn up, there will come a time when supporters get fed up with it and just don't bother. What about interviews with new players or names of trialists any hints of dual regs just something to raise a bit of interest.

It is frustrating that the website isn't updated regularly, however there was an article and video covering many of the points you raised. Maybe there'll be some more info soon now that the A League has been confirmed.

The other way around is, trip to Bedford to see Albion, plans in place to visit next week, hotel booked at a Premier Inn near ground, travel up Fri/ back Sun so a chance to see Bedford.

‘The other way around is, trip to Bedford to see Albion, plans in place to visit next week, hotel booked at a Premier Inn near ground (its not), travel up Fri/ back Sun so a chance to see Bedford’

Welcome I am certain you will enjoy your stay, recommend The Cricketer for a pre match pint and possibly the Wellington for the Friday night ‘wet’......loads of places to eat the Cappuccino Bar (book a table) is value if you like Italian......I suspect that others on here will offer alternatives......

However bring your wet weather gear (showers forecast) as we are still awaiting our ‘mythical’ covered terrace....

Making predictions on the final score a GR is a bit of a risky game......and certain to end in tears.....few make any money from the bookies on guessing the score at the home of the Blues ........save Mr Paddy Power.....

M.R.A.D has put out a strong Bedford team for the game.

‘M.R.A.D has put out a strong Bedford team for the game.’

Looking at the ‘offal’ site he seems to have listed the whole squad.......so you would be correct it is our strongest team.....

I trust you are coming was looking forward to buying you a pint in the Cricketers sometime this season......
