Albion v Sale FC - View from the stand
Was just the weather for Ducks and sometimes felt like snorkels were needed, and the howling hurricane wind didn’t help much either. The Ref kept control of the game, a few intreseting decisions, but letting the Game flow, and only reaching for his pocket a couple of times.
Saturday 8th December. Albion v Sale FC
This Saturday sees Albion host Sale FC.
" Once more into the breach dear friends"
As there have been no "stories" from either of the other three moderators the site automatically closed down again as you probably have noticed. As a result of a number of folk who wanted it to stay open, rather than those who do not, and in order to keep in contact with others and share messages etc. I have spent the last few minutes to keep it open with this short text for the benifit of our supporters et al.
Our opponents for Saturday - Birmingham Moseley
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 - Bishops Storford r.f.c.
Here at last, we welcome Bishops Storford r.f.c. to Brickfields for a one o'clock k.o. gates open at 11.00.a.m. don't be late folks.
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.
These are the photo's of the games mentioned online
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.
