PLAN YOUR MATCH RETURN AS BLUES HUNT FOR EIGHTH STRAIGHT WIN THIS SATURDAY

The Blues return to Goldington Road this Saturday as Jersey arrive in town for another critical Championship clash hoping to end Bedford’s winning run (Kick Off 3pm).

Following Sunday’s magnificent last minute victory over Nottingham thanks to a superb team try finished by Sam Blanchet, Mike Rayer’s troops are searching to make it eight wins on the bounce against a strong Island outfit, currently sat in sixth chasing the play-off positions. 

Whilst the Blues, currently up to third with a 14-point gap over Harvey Biljon’s Jersey, are concentrating on one match at a time and aren’t underestimating how difficult a challenge the Channel Islanders will be having lost to them in October at St Peter.  

There’s plenty to enjoy in your off field match experience also as we plan a rugby feast for the second weekend of Six Nations coverage. The Club will be televising both of Saturday’s international matches around the whole ground as France take on Ireland at 14:25 and Wales face Scotland at 16:50.

Hospitality is once again sold out with a special London Stout Six Nations theme for all guests to enjoy, but if you’ve missed pre-match lunch in the marquee, why not arrive early grab a match programme and a pint before heading to a great value pre-match lunch at Nos’s Nosh in the Scrum Hall or the newly revamped Bedford Barn catering unit on the halfway line.

This weekend’s SSG Services Guard of Honour will feature players from the Junior Blues Under 10s, let’s give them and the Bedford Bear a loud cheer as the teams run out on to the pitch.

Head to the Blues Marquee after the match for the Anglian Fasteners’ Man of the Match presentation, mix with players and cheer for one of your Celtic neighbours in the Six Nations on the big screen. Alternatively watch it in the quieter Eagle Bar along with a pint of this Saturday’s guest ale; Elgood’s Strawbeer.

Gates open at 12 noon, arrive early to avoid the queues, tickets are available online with a £2.00 discount at www.theclubshop.co.uk/bedfordblues or on the match day gate.
