Dear Supporter,

Rugby World Cup, England 2015 tickets.

Bedford Blues are expecting to be allocated a total in excess of 500 tickets for the key matches at Rugby World Cup 2015.  Demand is anticipated to be very high and this represents the best opportunity for true rugby fans to purchase tickets for England & Knock Out stage matches.

To apply you must have purchased an Adult season ticket for 2014-15 season before 30th April 2014 and returned along with completed RWC 2015 ballot application.

As Bedford Blues enter the final week of the first block of pre-season training they will be teaming up with Bedford Rowing Club to have a little fun on the river tonight (Thursday) while also raising funds for Testicular Cancer.
 
Mike Rayer’s men will be heading down to Bedford Rowing Club from Goldington Road at 6.15pm to be split into teams of four and then put through their paces on the river by rowing coaches Sharon and Katherine. Instructions and a Cox for each boat will be supplied and then the real fun of racing begins.
 

Bedford Blues are pleased to announce some significant signings ahead of the 2014/15 Greene King Championship season from Aviva Premiership side Saracens.
 
England U20 World Cup winners Nathan Earle, Hayden Thompson-Stringer, Nick Tompkins, Maro Itoje and Bedford’s very own Aaron Morris will all be available at various stages of the season on Dual Registration.
 

Bedford Blues are once again delighted to be able to offer the club’s Season Ticket holders the opportunity to apply for tickets for this coming season’s England Autumn Internationals.
 
Stuart Lancaster’s squad – which will no doubt include a number of Goldington Road Alumni – have a tough November ahead of them and Bedford Blues Season Ticket holders will have the chance to be at the Test matches against New Zealand, South Africa and Australia. 
 
Talking about the task ahead, Lancaster said: “To be able to take on these teams in successive weeks is ideal preparation for the World Cup and will tell us a lot about where we are one year out.
 

Bedford Blues would like to inform our fans that we have been experiencing some technical issues with our telephone system over the past few days. While the automated service is working as normal, the ability to leave and for us to receive answerphone message is not. 

If you do call the club but are unable to speak with anyone, please do not leave a message when instructed. Instead, drop us an email to info@bedfordrugby.co.uk or try to call back later on.

We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause and are working with engineers to get this issue rectified as quickly as possible. Thank you.

The role will give the successful applicant the opportunity to work within the professional sporting environment of a Greene King IPA Championship Club for an eight to twelve month period, on a 4 day a week basis including match-days.

The position will give the chosen intern an opportunity to experience life in a fast-moving industry and would ideally suit a student looking to fill a long-term work placement, or a recent graduate looking to break into sports media and marketing.

Bedford Blues are seeking a Strength and Conditioning Intern for the 2014/15 season to work under new department leader Andrew Petts. The role will give the successful applicant the opportunity to work within the professional sporting environment of a Greene King IPA Championship Club.

(i)    To provide support to the Bedford Blues Strength and Conditioning program, particularly around strength and fitness implementation, data collection, analysis and evaluation.

The Blues fixture list is almost complete after the draw to determine which British & Irish Cup Pool the Welsh participant clubs will compete in during was made at a meeting of the Principality Premiership clubs this week.
 
Bedford Blues, Doncaster Knights and Cornish Pirates will be joined in Pool 4 by the winner of the Newport Gwent Dragons regional play-off which will be contested by Bedwas, Cross Keys, Ebbw Vale and Newport on Saturday 30 August and Saturday 6 September.
 

Bedford Blues are pleased to announce that Gareth Alred has been appointed as Operations Manager at the Goldington Road club.

Alred, who will replace Andy Irvine from Monday 7th July, has a wealth of Championship Rugby off-field experience having carried out similar roles in Commercial, Marketing and Media positions at both Doncaster Knights and Jersey.

The 25 year-old Welshman also has experience of top flight rugby clubs following an early stint at Newport Gwent Dragons during his university studies, but will arrive in Bedford after a short period with Channel Islands airline, Blue Islands.

The Bedford Blues players returned to pre-season training this week and were immediately put through their paces by new Strength and Conditioning Coach Andrew Petts.

The lads could have been forgiven for thinking that they would be eased back into things but within minutes of introductions the players were being sent on sprints, wrestling one another, taking on the watt bike and putting on the gloves for a boxing challenge – and all of this before a ball was even touched.
