Bedford Friendly Round Robin 8th Feb 2020

Report from yesterday's Bedford round robin from Huntingdon's James Coubrough...


Hi all a match report from todays tournament in Bedford.

We fielded a joint team to play as Huntingdon & Stamford United with 4 players from each team. Stamford provided a keeper and kit.


Other teams were :-

Rushden, Leighton Buzzard, Moulton Masters and 2 teams from Bedford the Whites and the Blues.


A well enjoyed competition played in good spirit, good consistent refereeing and glorious weather.


1st game against Rushden 1-1 pretty even and looking to win it but conceded a very late equaliser. Some really nice football played at times.

2nd game against Leighton Buzzard we won 3-0.

3rd game against Bedford Whites we lost 4-3. We conceded 2 early goals but fought back to 3-3 but again we conceded a very late winner.

4th game against Moulton was a 1-1 draw. A tight game and not a lot of chances.

Last game against Bedford Blues we lost 3-0. Felt we deserved more out of that game but hey ho that's football.


Final Table:

1 Bedford Blues

2 Moulton

3 Bedford Whites

4 Stamford/Huntingdon

5 Rushden

6 Leighton Buzzard.


In my opinion we all played well but succumbed to the eventual winning teams. Not a bad mornings effort.

Although first time as a joint team, it worked well and thanks to Gary Wildsmith from Stamford for managing the team.
