BLUES TARGET CHRISTMAS CUP JOY

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.

Ealing currently sit top of the group and have also elevated themselves to third in the Championship table with a much-improved squad, but Bedford will be hoping to give them the holiday Blues in a competition Rayer and his troops have always targeted.

As well as the on-field entertainment, there is plenty more in store off the pitch for this festive themed fixture. Pick up a match programme on entry to the ground and head up to the Eagle Bar to sample the Christmas Guest Ale; St Austell Brewery’s Jolly Holly Ale or a pint of Bedford’s favourite Eagle IPA.

There are still a few remaining places in the Blues Marquee for a three course Christmas Dinner in pre-match hospitality, email sophie@bedfordrugby.co.uk today to book in.

Before kick-off, why not pop in to the Young’s London Stout Taxi outside the marquee for a quick selfie in the custom made photobooth and see if you can find santa for a free pint!

As the teams run out, please give both sets of players and this week’s SSG Guard of Honour from Henlow CofE Academy along with the Bedford Bear, a loud cheer to warm us all up on a cold afternoon.

At half-time and post-game we have a real treat for you as Bedford Town Band return for a short Christmas carol at the break before performing a few numbers in the marquee post-match for supporters to enjoy following the Anglian Fasteners Man of the Match Presentation.

For those wanting to review the match and enjoy expert analysis, head up to the Eagle Bar for live reaction from players and coaches in the Michael R Peters Final Whistle. Stick about after the match for music, entertainment and the chance to mix with players and hopefully celebrate a Bedford win for Christmas #COYB.

Don’t forget to visit the Club Shop before, half-time or after the match to check out the new leisurewear range and grab yourself a few stocking fillers for this Christmas. Show your Season Ticket for 10% discount.
