It was fantastic to have such huge interest this year, with 44 Old Bedians signing up to play, ranging from those who left 10 years ago to our most recent leavers of 2021. The highest number of alumni to date!
All the players stepped up to the challenge on the day and it was great to see everyone come together with such good humour.
