This season’s Former Players Autumn Luncheon will be held on Saturday 3 October in the Blues Marquee as Bedford lock horns with Nottingham in the Blues second home league outing of the new campaign.

The hospitality lunch and entertainment affords a wonderful opportunity for those former players who are able to attend to have an update with their contemporaries, reminisce on days gone by and equally importantly to show their support for the current Blues side.

A three course lunch will be followed by an address by FPA Chairman Leigh Mansell before we hear from today’s squad prior to the 3pm Kick Off. Gates open at 12 noon with arrival at 12:30 prompt.

There are a reserved amount of tables available to the FPA on a first come first served basis. Those wishing to attend should notify FPA secretary John Cooley by email at or by telephone: 01234 823532 / 07880 337117.

Those who wish to take a table can contact the Club direct by emailing Hospitality is £25.00 per head (not included ground entry ticket).
