Welcome to the new re-launched website of the Bedford Eagles Supporters Trust (BEST)
dedicated to the successful future of Bedford Town FC.
We exist because we believe that the 150,000 people that live in the Bedford vicinity
deserve a senior football club that has the drive and ambition to succeed in reaching
the highest levels of football possible to meet the aspirations of the club’s supporters
and the wider population of the area.
The experience within the town is of a 100 year old club, with a proud history, that
sadly failed financially in 1981 but was reborn again in 1989 by the passion and
hard graft of local people that really cared. Despite success on the field the club
passed into private ownership again in 2000 after suffering further financial difficulties.
Despite reaching the Conference South in 2006 further success was short lived and
the club has now finally slipped 2 levels lower into the Southern League Division
One Central after several indifferent seasons.
Our aim is to see a wider more democratic ownership model for the club that embraces
the wishes and resources of all fans, shareholders and individual investors.
We will always have regard for the differing opinions of all interested parties who
wish to see Bedford Town FC as a vibrant and successful football club.
