Biggleswade Town (Biggleswade & District)

Biggleswade Town, who were founded in 1874 as Biggleswade F.C., first played the Lilywhites in the 1960s in the F.A. Cup. At that time they shared a ground with the local cricket club at Fairfield. They were to remain at Fairfield until 2006 when they went to share with the Bedford United & Valero Club in McMullen Park, Bedford. By the start of the 2008/09 season, their new ground, known as the Carlsberg Stadium, was ready. They have also been known as Biggleswade & District F.C.

28.12.2013               Biggleswade 1 - 2 Cambridge City                                                                                                           Cambridge City team: Barrett, Tom Pepper, Brighton, Nick Beasant, Chaffey, Beech, Robbie Burns, Adam Martin, Bossman, Adam Marriott and Josh Dawkin. Sub used for the Lilywhites was Jackson Ramm who replaced Robbie Burns in the 44th minute. In some games you are forced to battle to take anything from a match and this was one of them. On a pitch that the players, certainly in the first half, found it hard to keep on their feet, the Lilywhites took the lead in the 30th minute from a brilliant free kick just outside of the box from James Brighton. Long into injury time at the end of the first half, Biggleswade equalished having had much of the possesion through the half. Into the second half the Lilywhites managed to get more of the ball and having escaped the offside trap, Adam Beech scored the winning goal with just over 10 minutes to go. It was to be one of the largest crowds of the season for Biggleswade, so much so that they sold out of programmes.
