Bedford Blues return to Goldington Road this Saturday for their final home Championship match of the season as they prepare to face promotion chasing Yorkshire Carnegie who are looking to secure second place in the league (Kick Off 3pm).

The Club hope supporters will turn out in force to mark the close of another campaign and End of Season Party with live music and player entertainment following the final whistle as well as the Followers’ Player of the Season Presentation.

On the back of three successive away league wins, Mike Rayer’s men will be hoping to bring that form back to Bedford and continue the running rugby that saw the Blues beat the British Army at home last week.

Yorkshire, however, will be keen to find form ahead of the play-offs having bounced back from a series of recent defeats with a trouncing of Richmond last weekend at Headingley.

The Blues have faced Brian Redpath’s side three times already this season having been drawn in the same B&I Cup group with all results going to way of the Yorkshiremen, but Bedford will be keen to impress in their last home outing of the season in front of their superb faithful supporters.

The Club hope fans will stay around and enjoy an end of season party in the marquee with live music throughout the night from Mark Calder, including an open mic session for anyone who fancies themselves as the next pop sensation. 

Also in the marquee post-game we will have the Anglian Fasteners Man of the Match, Followers’ presentation and at 6:15pm the Blues squad will enter for an end of season Q&A with supporters.

Immediately after the match, supporters can head up to the Eagle Bar for brief expert analysis and live reaction from a Blues coach in the Michael R Peters Final Whistle. As always, we will have a guest ale series in the Eagle Bar, this week’s drop will be a surprise special at just £3 per pint.

Hospitality is fully sold out in the marquee and pre-match in the Eagle Bar, apologies to the inconvenience this will cause pre-match as it will be closed until after kick off. Those arriving early, grab a match programme and head to the Scrum Bar for a beer and dine in Nos’s Nosh.

As the teams run out, please give both sets of players and this week’s SSG Guard of Honour from Bedford Junior Blues along with the Bedford Bear, a loud cheer ahead of the rugby.
