This week it's not a rearranged game for a change, what a topsy turvy season this is. Our guests this week are our old adversary's Birmingham Moseley or Mose for short who like Albion are just "resting" we hope, in National One before progressing to the Championship again.
200 Club prematch meal - Bishops Stortford
Although the rearranged fixture against Bishops Stortford was for a 1.00 k.o. to accomodate the Six Nations screening on the television, the previously arranged 200 Club luncheon went ahead with a time of 11.00 for a 11.30 start, and as is sometime the case when things alter from the norm the meal started late but it was another sucessful venture for the 200 club, well done to all.

Our opponents this week - Ampthill & District
This Saturday sees 3rd play 4th with Albion making their return to Ampthill in what may be a closely fought fixture. This was the case on a wet and windy November day in which Albion came out top 16-9 in the reverse fixture.
Our opponents this week - Birmingham Moseley r.f.c.
We should be alright this time as the weather forecast for Saturday in Moseley is for "Sunny intervals a temperature of 5 degrees and an Easterly wind of 12 m.p.h. So all set to go. Birmingham Moseley or just Moseley as they were called until recently were formed three years earlier than Albion in 1873 against 1876. Their golden era was in the 1960's - 1970's and for us it was the 1920's - 1930's.

Regarding the non event of yesterdays game against Loughborough. For those who were there it will not be a surprise of course, but for those who didn't attend these Championship games for whatever reason and there are many of course as we can't all travel, hopefully they will give an appreaciation of what can be done with a will to play a game of rugby.
Our opponents for Saturday - Fylde r.f.c.
In 1987 when the leagues were formed , some twelve clubs found themselves pulled out of the hat and involved in the third tier of the league structure which included both Fylde and Albion, and Fylde like Albion have seen some up and down movement since then with both clubs spending time in the 5th. level with Fylde in the Northern section and Albion of course in the Southern section. Fylde managed promotion out of the National Division Three North in the 2010 - 2011 season and without checking I believe Albion were getting promoted in about the 1998 - 1999 season whilst still at Beacon Park. The result being that currently they are the only two clubs in National One, the third tier that were in the original twelve clubs picked to found this division of the rugby leagues. Well done you two.

Our opponents for Saturday - Bishops Stortford r.f.c.
We welcome Bishops Stortford r.f.c. for the return match at Brickfields having met them for the first time, at their ground at Silver Leys last September after they were one of three clubs promoted to National One having finished season 2016 - 2017 as Champions of National 2 South, when they won their final game of the season with a record attendance of 1,664. I mention this as it must have been a great occasion for the club not least because the official ground capacity is given as 1,600, so a few extra found their way in to give support to the team, well done.
Our opponents for Saturday - Old Albanian r.f.c.
This week we entertain Old Albanian's one of the clubs that our old mate Shanners has coached.
