The big clear up aids the off-field environment of our club ahead of another exciting Championship season – and we need your help!

Bedford Blues Community team are delighted to announce our first ever roadshow camps in Northamptonshire and Essex where the delivery team will be teaching youngsters from further afield to ‘learn to play the Blues way’.

The first one-day camp on the road will be at new club partners May & Baker RUFC in Dagenham on Wednesday 2nd August from 9am – 3pm. The second three-day camp will take place just up the A428 at the famous Northampton Old Scouts rugby club starting on Tuesday 15th August at 9am – 3pm.

Bedford Blues returned to pre-season training on Monday 12 June with Strength and Conditioning Coach Sean Vine putting the lads through the paces in the gym while Mike Rayer, Martin Hynes and Paul Larkin, joined by new faces Alex Rae and Lee Dickson, cracked on with preparations for the coming campaign. We sat down with Director of Rugby Mike Rayer to learn more about what has been going on so far and what lays ahead for the lads.

Tickets and hospitality are now on sale for Bedford Blues pre-season fixtures against European Champions Saracens and high-flying National One side Plymouth Albion.

On Saturday 12th August, Kieran Hallet's Albion will be making the trip from Devon to Goldington Road for the season opener (KO 3pm) as fans get the first chance to meet the new players including our star signings after the match.

The fixtures for the 2017/18 British & Irish Cup have been announced with Bedford Blues pooled alongside Ospreys, Nottingham and reigning champions Munster A.

It will certainly be a tough challenge for the Blues who open their campaign against fellow Championship side Nottingham away from home on the weekend of 13th to 15th October. Bedford will then welcome Ospreys to Goldington Road at 3pm on Saturday 21st for the annual Ladies’ Day game.

This summer Bedford Blues Community team will be hosting not one, but two big pre-season rugby camps in August for children of all ages at Goldington Road.

The first camp will be a four-day rugby extravaganza from Monday 21st to Thursday 24th August under our new coaching direction being rolled out across the region; ‘Learn to Play the Blues way’.

This exciting new project will allow children to experience the Blues rugby, culture and values whilst being coached and led by current Bedford Blues first team players. The ‘Blues’ way will focus on the below five core principles.
