A Festival Of Rugby – Ampthill, Bedford, Ebbw Vale, Saracens – Sat Aug 18
Like many clubs, Ampthill’s Dillingham Park/Olney Field pitches are suffering from the current heatwave, with the pitches dry as a bone the club has accepted an offer from Bedford Blues to host our home pre-season fixture against Ebbw Vale on Saturday August 18th at Goldington Road. The game will kick off at 17:00 after the Blues pre-season fixture (ko 15:00) with Premiership Champions Saracens.
Ampthill Director of Rugby Mark Lavery commented: “The current weather condition had left a bit of a question mark about the possibility of our fixture with Ebbw Vale going ahead, but after chatting with Mike and the Blues board it was agreed that we could use Goldington Road. We are very grateful Bedford and hope that everyone has a great day of rugby.”
Blues Director of Rugby Mike Rayer commented: “It’s going to be a fantastic festival of rugby as we welcome Saracens, Ampthill and Ebbw Vale to Goldington Road on Saturday 18th August. Fingers crossed the sunshine will remain and we can all enjoy ourselves ahead of the Championship and National One seasons.”
