Albion will travel to Goldington Road to face Bedford Blues on Saturday 12th August, in a pre-season friendly against the Championship club.

The current pre-season fixture list for Albion now includes two trips to Championship sides with Kieran Hallett’s team squaring up against two of his former sides. After playing Bedford Blues on Saturday 12th August, Albion will play the Cornish Pirates at The Mennaye Field on Saturday 26th August.

Kieran is looking forward to Albion’s pre-season fixtures as his side will take on two Championship sides.

“One of the reasons we were successful last year was because we were able to lift the tempo against teams when we wanted to,” said Kieran. “It will be interesting to see how we manage playing against a team that is used to playing at a higher intensity in Championship games as oppose to National One every week.”

Tickets for the fixture against Cornish Pirates will be available at the gates on the day. The price is £10 only per each home game – sit or stand anywhere. For under 16s the admission price is £1.

The tickets for the Bedford Blues game will be available on their club website – www.bedfordrugby.co.uk – soon.
