After wins against Oxford University U21s and Wasps Academy U19s this week, the Blues Academy have their third game in eight days when they travel to play the RAF U23 XV at RAF Halton on Saturday.  The game is at RAF Halton (directions below) with a 2.30 pm Kick Off.  Bedford beat the RAF U23 side six weeks ago by 45pts -10 at Goldington Road.  The RAF are in the final stages of preparation for the Inter-Services competition which takes place at the end of November.

Bedford again rotate their squad and make eight changes to the starting lineup that beat Wasps.

Bedford Academy beat the Wasps Academy on a miserable wet night by 13pts - 12 at Goldington Road.  Playing down the slope, with the weather behind them, the Blues took a lead of 13pts – 5 at half time through a dominant forward performance, before Wasps fought back in the second to narrow the gap, but leave Bedford with a 13pts – 12 win.

The RFU and Worcester Warriors will launch a Flash Sale on Wednesday morning from 8am to Thursday evening at 5pm for all supporters to purchase tickets for this Sunday’s  Championship XV v Canada match at Sixways for just £7.50 via the club website.

The Championship XV concept will be reignited following its 2012 success against the Maori All Blacks. The best English qualified XV from across the league will face Canada in a showpiece game highlighting the talent on offer in the second tier, providing a unique international experience for players and spectators alike.

Bedford Blues would like to thank everyone who was involved and attended Ladies Day 2014 at Goldington Road last week in helping make it another memorable occasion and raising £3,792.14 for Cancer Research UK.

The 2,425 people through the gates particularly helped make last Saturday a huge success in supporting such a great cause through donation, beauty treatments, hospitality, raffles and another great auction with our MC Sam Roberts.

A strong second half performance wasn’t enough for Bedford Blues as they lost 36-20 in the British and Irish Cup at pool four leaders Doncaster Knights on Saturday afternoon, writes Ryan Lewis of the Bedford Times & Citizen.

The defeat leaves Bedford nine points adrift of Doncaster, who have a maximum of 15 points in the pool and look favourites to qualify for the quarter-finals.

The Blues made a number of changes off the back of the last minute defeat to Cross Keys last week, with only eight players retaining their place in the starting XV and in contrast to last week’s strong start, it was Bedford’s turn to fall behind early on.

Bedford Blues’ annual Fireworks extravaganza will be held on Friday 7th November at the Goldington Road site with gates opening at 6pm for an action packed, fun filled evening of entertainment, sponsored by Progress Skoda.

As well as the gates opening, the much anticipated funfair and Club bars will be open from 6pm leaving plenty of time to take a wander around the ground and soak up the family atmosphere at this traditional town event before the first display starts at 7pm. The children’s display is the perfect winter warmer for kids of all ages, ahead of the main event.

In May of this year Bedford Blues Chairman, Geoff Irvine announced he would be standing down from his positon as Chairman of the Club at the end of the 2015/16 season in a meeting of interested parties.

When the announcement was made a group was formed to take a look from outside the Club at the future of rugby in Bedford and how the club was managed.
