That's a nice showing for the ladies. Hopefully start stacking some points here in the near future.

Nearly got the exact same result in the game with Raunds.

RallyInRaleigh - Yes, you're right, what a season it has been so far although the home defeat to Rugby Borough was a little disappointing:

Real Bedford were due to travel to Thame United Reserves on Saturday (12 November) however they are involved in a County Cup tie which takes precedence so there is unfortunately a gap untiI the next fixture with Eaton Socon on Saturday 19  November:

The current Division One League table, Saturday's opponents Eaton Socon are currently unbeaten away from home and won 4-1 at second place Northampton Sileby Rangers last Saturday so it's unlikely to be a cake walk for Rob Sinclair's men:

There's a thread on another Forum which isn't aIIowing me to re-post on here however it is suggesting that it is aII faIIing apart at McMuIIen Park due to the recent supposed crash in Crypto Currencies incIuding Bitcoin and Peter McCormack is about to waIk away, Mr McCormack strongIy denies this in the Twitter feed beIow:

I read that twitter thread but i don't think there was any suggestion on that that Peter is about to walk away. They have plenty of cash in the bank as can be seen from their recent income reports.

People on a different forum may have put a different spin on it but I don't think the author of the twitter piece was suggesting that the whole thing is about to fall apart imminently. more that with so many crypto firms in trouble it could have an impact on their future ambitions.

Obviously in shot-term they are attracting healthy crowds at home and are getting a lot of income in through merch sales as well, so definitely have nothing to worry about.

No doubt the contagion effect between various exchanges and lending companies (FTX, Gemini Earn, Blockfi to name a few) make things interesting going forward. I don't think this at all impacts their current campaign or Peters long term interest in the club. His stated goal is National League in ten years time. That's an uphill climb regardless of the industry but not impossible. Take it one year at a time.

I do think this latest problem in the broader crypto (not specifically bitcoin) market is if he can continue to bring in big sponsorship dollars from companies that are seemingly all taking a hit simultaneously. His primary sponsors have been largely clear of issues so far, save BlockFi. Still, it's a concern. 

Personally, if a crook is running rampant like SBF was at FTX, better to find him today than tomorrow. Though, obviously, you wish it were better regulated to prevent this! I was fortunate to not really lose much here but there are millions of people feeling absolutely devastated right now. It stinks.

Watched the stream of Sat's game. Whilst Eason Socon were certainly a physical side, in the 2nd half the amount of time Jordan Brown spent throwing himself to the ground and rolling around was ridiculous. This was mentioned in the previous game as well I believe. That and the constant buffering of the stream made the game pretty much unwatchable as a spectacle for me.

LondonEagle - Jordan Brown admitted in the post match interview that he does that purposely but he is a nice guy really, are you sure it's not sour grapes on your part as Jordan's brief spell at The Eyrie during Mark Duckett's eight month reign in 2020 wasn't a happy one unlike now at McMullen Park. Here are the live stream highlights from the narrow Eaton Socon win and a match report:

It really wasn't pretty to watch, I know they were down to 10 men and it's fair enough to try and draw a foul from an opponent, but then rolling around on the floor screaming each time to try and get the opposing player sent off, with your teammates joining in by trying to pressurise the ref, is not what anyone goes to non-league football to watch.

PS both the reports posted on here from the previous game at Moulton said the same thing, so I don't think it's just me. This was one:

"If you hadn’t called him out I would have. Quite possibly the most embarrassing exhibition of exaggerated squealing and feigning injury I’ve ever seen from one player."

LondonEagle - You said that Bedford Ladies are wearing Real Bedford kits however this is a photograph from the FA Cup tie yesterday with Hashtag United Ladies, it wouId have been a good opportunity to proudIy wear the new kit. UnfortunateIy the Ladies suffered a heavy 7-0 defeat:  

That is odd as the kit was unveiled ages ago - June: https://www.realbedford.com/news/real-bedford-fc-partner-with-bedford-ladies-and-girls-fc

It seems like the Ladies have another new kit, money seems to be no object for Mr McCormack:

The ladies new home kit has arrived

Bedford Ladies entertain Harlow Town Ladies this afternoon in what should be an interesting Eastern Region Women's League Premier Division encounter. There is huge potential for the Ladies to progress a lot further under the leadership of Real Bedford Chairman Peter McCormack as they were just left 'to rot' when under the Bedford Town umbrella and going nowhere, you really have to hand it to Mr McCormack don't you for what he has already achieved at McMullen Park in a short space of time, it's truly incredible:

I have just been reliably informed that Bedford Ladies and Harlow Town Ladies this afternoon has been called off due to a waterlogged McMullen Park pitch, very disappointing:

The draw has already been made. Real Bedford have been expelled from the competition for playing an ineligible player in the previous round v Aylesbury as per my post above.

Aylesbury have been reinstated and are home to 5th placed Biggleswade United of the SSML Prem.

Shame as would have been a good test for Rob Sinclair's boys in front of a big home crowd.
