Bedford Blues recovered from 14-0 down after 13 minutes to draw 19 all with Ealing Trailfinders at Goldington Road in the third pool game of the British and Irish Cup on Saturday afternoon.

A try for Jason Hill plus eight points from the boot of Jake Sharp and two penalties from Myles Dorrian were enough to tie a game which saw Ealing hooker Alun Walker cross for a hat-trick on a soggy afternoon in Bedford.

It is with deep regret that the club announce the death of former captain Barrie Williams.

Barrie made an amazing 249 appearances for the town between 1958-67. He played most of his rugby on the wing, amassing a stunning 126 tries, making him the joint second (with D.P. Rogers) highest ever try scorer in the club's history. He took over the club captaincy for the 1960-61 season, leading another great year.

A very talented sportsman having been a county tennis and squash player, Barrie was equally at home on a court as well as a rugby pitch.

Four brave members of the Bedford Blues squad were put through their paces this week as they were set the task of taking on the Meatcure Chilli Burger Challenge.

The task was quite simple. On Monday night, Tom James, Mike Howard, Pat Tapley and Christian Judge each had to simply work their way through a four patty tower burger, a dozen jalapeno bites, double fries and a milkshake in just 15 minutes.

With the rest of the squad’s encouragement, the foursome got stuck into the challenge wholeheartedly but it proved to be a step too far as none of them could quite complete the task in the time limit set out.

The Blues return to Goldington Road this Saturday for the Christmas fixture against Ealing Trailfinders with both sides still in the running of making the Cup knockout stages going in to the festive double header (KO 3pm).  

Mike Rayer’s men travelled back from Leeds last weekend with nothing to show after an improved performance which deserved at least a losing bonus point. This Saturday the Blues will be looking to respond in front of the home faithful, but will need their 16th man behind them to help them return to winning ways.

Have you made your Christmas list? Don't know what to get that one relative who has everything or looking to spoil a Blues supporter? Fear not as the Bedford Blues are on hand to help you out at this very festive time of year from this Saturday.

The Blues have three fantastic Christmas Market dates for you this year as we again rev up the yellow Robin Reliant, donning our favourite Bedford sheepskin coat and head into Bedford Town Centre to set up shop in the bustling market close to M&S on Saturday 3rd December, morning of Wednesday 7th December and all day Wednesday 14th December.
