Kick-Off Day and Time for The Lady Bay fixture will be confirmed soon. If there is sufficient interest our Supporters Group will organise a coach for this game!
In Round two we welcome Coventry back to the Grange Jaguar-Land Rover Bowl at Dillingham Park. This will be the Mob’s first opportunity to see all of the new signings firsthand in competitive action in what promises to be an exciting season of rugby!
Round three sees Ampthill make the short trip to West London to face London Scottish on Sat 2nd/Sun 3rd October, before we welcome local rivals Bedford Blues to the Dillingham Park in round four in the latest installment of #TheBattleofBedfordshire on Saturday 9th October. This is the fixture our supporters will be looking out for – ticket details will be announced soon.

Director of Rugby, Mark Lavery comments “The 2021 season was tough for everyone – the players, supporters, sponsors, volunteers and everyone associated with the club. Whilst Covid hasn’t gone away and we still need to be extremely careful we are hopeful that the vaccination program will protect us from the virus. We may face further challenges ahead but I’m sure if we all stick together we can overcome them.
We’ve recruited an exciting group of players and we still have some space on the playing roster but with a blend of youth and experience at the highest level, and we hope we can finally complete a full season in the Championship at our third attempt. Our first block of fixtures will be tough, but it will be fantastic to welcome all of our Championship friends back to Ampthill and see them play in front of a full crowd in the Grange Jaguar-Land Rover Bowl”
Details of pre-season friendlies will be announced on Weds 28th July.
