What Is The Perfect Way To Work Off Christmas Excess?
A whole day of Maroon and Gold is the answer.
The Traditional Boxing Day charity fixture in aid of the Meningitis Trust & Mums Against Cancer kicks off at 10:30 at Dillingham Park, this year, notionally, the Jets (3rdXV) play the Extras (4thXV) but all players are welcome. As usual the bar will be open until 13:30.
Why not then trot along to Goldington Road to see Bedford Blues take on your very own Ampthill 1stXV for a 15:00 kick off with the bars open till late.
Bedford currently lie third in the Championship five points from the top and have an enviable reputation for playing open, attractive rugby. Ampthill lie fourth in Nat 1 just two points off promotion, have scored more points than any other side in National 1 and have the best points difference. The game should be a cracker.
Although perhaps not helping with your hangover the opportunity to extend the festivities and delay sobering up may prove attractive.
Ampthill have selected a strong side with the highlight being the return of “Tiny” & “Skippy” to their former home.
