Bedford Blues attempts to bounce back from a disappointing defeat in Penzance last weekend were thwarted by a stubborn Doncaster Knights side who all but booked their place in the next round of the British & Irish Cup with a 15-17 win at Goldington Road on Friday night.

Losing 65-14 to Cornish Pirates had been a massive blow and the Blues wanted to give the 2002 fans who came through the Goldington Road gates something to celebrate and while tries from Hayden Thompson-Stringer and Henry Staff were greeted with huge cheers, the boot of Dougie Flockhart meant that the visitors took the spoils.

Following a disappointing defeat away to Cornish Pirates at the Mennaye, stand in skipper Paul Tupai is determined to right the wrongs from last time out and give Bedford supporters something to celebrate ahead of the Doncaster Knights clash at Goldington Road this Friday (Kick Off 7:45pm).

The Blues suffered a heartbreaking loss last Sunday, running in just two tries against an unstoppable Pirates side playing the best rugby they have produced this season, but this Friday sees Bedford on a revenge mission and the former Samoan international is confident the boys will be out in force in front of a home crowd.

There will be rugby under lights again at Goldington Road next week, when the Blues Academy take on Saracens Academy, on Monday December 1st, KO 7.30 pm.  The Blues will be looking to put on a good performance against the RFU funded Academy. 

After a good win last week, at home to Irish Exiles, Bedford pick a strong side to face Saracens.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce that the new ‘Happy Hours’ initiative will be continuing this Friday night ahead of the impending British & Irish Cup fixture against Doncaster Knights.

To further enhance supporters’ match day experience and ensure early visitors get the best beer for their buck; Wells Eagle IPA, McEwan’s Lager, Young’s London Stout, Wells Eagle Smooth and Somersby Cider will all be available at the reduced price of just £3.00 a pint.

‘Friday Night Lights’ continue at Goldington Road this Friday 28th November as Bedford Blues take on Doncaster Knights in Round 5 of the British and Irish Cup.

The Blues faced disappointment when the two sides last met back in October, losing out 36-20 despite an undeniably strong second half performance, as Mike Rayer’s troops set out on a revenge mission and attempt to right the wrongs of last Sunday in front of a strong home crowd. 

To make sure fans are kept up to date on all the latest activity at Goldington Road, Bedford Blues have been working hard to produce weekly video content on all previous and upcoming fixtures through our Youtube channel BedfordBluesvids.

Video footage includes exclusive interviews with coaches and the players, as well as match try highlights including commentary from each fixture and even behind-the-scenes access from training.
