Academy v Old Albanians, Sat Feb 10 2018, National Colts Cup
Ampthill welcome Old Albanians to Dillingham Park this Saturday for round 3 of the National Colts Cup.
The Academy have had a very successful year so far but now they face a step up in class as near neighbours Albanian won the last ever National Under 17 Plate in 2017 with their Under 18 elders reaching the quarter final of the 20 17 National Colts Cup.
Albanian U18a are currently top of Division 1 of the U18 Saracens Herts Middlesex league, their U18b team lie 4th in Division 2 and their U17 squad lie 3rd in Division 1 just 2 places behind Ampthill’s U17s.
The Academy’s recent results include a thumping 0-35 victory away at Sedgley Park in January and a 7-18 win at Buckingham last weekend.
Old Albanians, based on their results, seem to be the team to beat in this age group. The Academy are under no illusions, they will have to put in their best performance of the season thus far to secure a win.
We invite members and supporters of the club to come and support an Academy team with high hopes of progressing in what is the highest profile competition in this age group.
Kick off is at 2:15 and all are welcome, to come and watch what promises to be an enthralling encounter.
