Cannot imagine many Bedford Blue supporters turning out for this but Richmond and London Jocks share the same ground.Then again Camborne and Pirates shared in the past.

Given the facilities - or lack of them at Ampthill and the famed muddy woodland walk from clubhouse to the pitch I'm not surprised there are discussions about them relocating for a Championship campaign.

Ampthill are a very well organised set up at all levels.Running 19 teams needs funding and good management.

Bedfordshire side Ampthill promoted to Championship league.
Google - bbc sport ampthill and see the report and video of the field they play on.

Mark Lavery DOR said this morning on Three Counties Radio that the Club plan to move to a 34 acre site next to Woburn Centre Parcs. Eight pitches four floodlit to cater for 1700 players at present they have 1100.Hope they have a fast track Planning Committee on Mid Bedfordshire Council.
Rolling Maul Forum has a link to interview.
Impressive plans on Clubs website.

No disrespect to Ampthill but:

Why is there no minimum standard for promotion to the Championship?

How could we complain about the virtual ringfencing of the PRL if we do the same to those below us who seek to join us.

Good pubs and restaurants. Smart town population only 13,303.Plenty of places to stay including Woburn Center Parcs.
Need to bring umbrella and wellies as no shelter in the field and mud thru the woods.
