1st XV News

This summer Bedford Blues Community team will be hosting not one, but two big pre-season rugby camps in August for children of all ages at Goldington Road.

The first camp will be a four-day rugby extravaganza from Monday 21st to Thursday 24th August under our new coaching direction being rolled out across the region; ‘Learn to Play the Blues way’.

This exciting new project will allow children to experience the Blues rugby, culture and values whilst being coached and led by current Bedford Blues first team players. The ‘Blues’ way will focus on the below five core principles.

The deadline for 2017 Autumn Internationals ticket applications for Twickenham to watch England closes at the end of June for all 2017-18 Bedford Blues Season Ticket holders. 

This autumn Blues members will have the chance to watch Eddie Jones’ troops battle against Argentina, Australia and Samoa with good availability for the first and last encounter, whilst ticketing is very limited for the Australia test.

Bedford Blues have increased their squad size for the 2017/18 Championship season up to 27 after two more members of the current crop put pen to paper on new deals.

Bolstering the front row options for another campaign will be prop Dave Spelman and hooker Jacob Fields.

Spelman, 23, suffered a frustrating first season at Goldington Road. Having featured in the matchday squad on a regular basis, he picked up an innocuous looking knee injury in training at the tail-end of 2016 that ended up ruling him out for the rest of the season.

The supporter ground works program starts this Saturday 17th June as the Blues volunteer work force help the club with a wide range of smaller maintenance jobs at Goldington Road throughout the summer mornings.

The big clear up aids the off-field environment of our club ahead of another exciting Championship season – and we need your help!

The GKIPA Championship fixtures for the 2017/18 season have been announced with Bedford Blues opening their account away in the capital against Richmond on Saturday 2nd September before hosting their first home game versus London Scottish at Goldington Road a week later.

September will be a busy and difficult opening month with five fixtures for Mike Rayer’s men, including Ealing Trailfinders away, Bristol’s title favourite galaticos at home on Saturday 23rd before finishing the month with the always enjoyable trip to Jersey to face the Reds.
