THE FOLLOWERS

A very warm welcome to all supporters, players and officials of both Bedford Blues and Jersey.

Two wins at the start of 2020 meant the Followers went to Penzance hopeful of more of the same.

Whilst the result didn't go our way, few would argue - including the Pirates fans we spoke to, that the Blues played the majority of the best rugby- coming undone by a breakaway try and a pushover try in a corner that was so muddy on the try line it was impossible to defend.

It's when you see a pitch like the Mennaye you appreciate just what a fabulous job our ground staff under the unflappable Chris Ashworth do on the hallowed turf of Goldington Road.

So next up Jersey - who are the latest to rack up the points against a struggling Yorkshire Carnegie having also recently succumb to the Pirates at home 10-23.

So this has all the hallmarks of being a humdinger – so let's make lots of noise GR and get behind the team.

It is not too late to sign up to appear on BT Sports Programme "RUGBY TONIGHT" alongside Sarra Elgan, Ugo Monye, Brian O’Driscoll, Lawrence Dallaglio et al. It's on the 4th March at the Olympic Park – the Followers are running a coach down there.

 

On the 6th March 7pm for a 7.30pm start there is the ANNUAL FOLLOWERS QUIZ NIGHT, Usual set up – teams of up to 6 people - but if you don't have a team then rock up anyway and we will find you a team. Always great fun, prizes and light refreshments

please note that places are going fast - the team to beat this year I'm told is led by the club's new Media Man, Ryan Robinson.

Pop into the Followers Office or e-mail bedfordrugbyfollowers@gmail.com if you are interested or want to know more.

 

The Followers Man of The Match' photo from the Pirates game will appear in the next programme (but I can reveal that for an absolute stellar performance it was Dan Temm).

Have a great day, get behind the boys and COYB!

Martin Clark, Chairman
