Bedford Athletic Official Website

For all the latest news on games, social events and what's happening generally

Spring is now looming closer and along with it just six more games to be played - although these are spread out until the end of April. Things are looking good for our promotion bid, but all games to the end of the season are just as important as those we have played and we need to keep focused and determined in our efforts.

I want to pledge my continued support to all players at the Ath and its good to see we are successful throughout. And many thanks to for the support during the season.

Thanks again to all our supporters and to everyone who has helped to make this season so successful thus far, both on and off the pitch. Keep up the good work, and also many thanks to our official gambling partner - for all the support they have provided to us over the years.

06-Feb-04: Familiar faces at the Ath

It was good to see some familiar faces at the Ath yesterday - Andy Leach and Jack Matthews.

Whilst Andy's playing days sadly are over it was nice to see him supporting one of his old clubs.

Jack has just returned from Kuwait and is looking to returning to the Ath to play for the remained of the season at least.

It is also good to know that Smithy is back with the Ath, having left us for two years due to work commitment

It will be good to have both players back to give strength in depth to the Ath.

Its an Ann Summers evening this month!

Friday evening saw the annual quiz night take place at the Clubhouse. Some ten teams took place and another fun night was had by all - despite complaints about the difficulty of the questions! Clearly some people need to get studying for next year - it doesn't get easier!!!!!

Thanks to Harry Stillman, Paul and Marie Bowker and of course to Svend for the organisation of another successful social event.
