First "home" friendly announced for pre-season

Bedford Town Football Club can confirm we will face a QPR U23 development side for the second consecutive pre-season. Due to ground renovations, the fixture will be played at Top Field, the home of Hitchin Town FC. A special thank you to all at Hitchin Town FC for hosting this and a selection of our other pre-season friendlies.

Lee Bircham welcomed the developing talents of EFL Championship side Queens Park Rangers last pre-season, in only his sixth game in charge of The Eagles. Rangers' U23 manager Paul Furlong will bring a strong side of pro players in a tough test for The Eagles.

The fixture will take place on Friday 12th July, kicking off at 7pm at Top Field. The game will be our first "home" fixture of the pre-season campaign, albeit played at a neutral ground, before the league season kicks off on Saturday 10th August.

Ticketing information for the fixture will be announced later in the summer. Further friendlies will be announced over the coming weeks.
