Blues Community are pleased to announce the dates of their Summer Rugby Camp at Goldington Road for Tuesday 28th, Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th August, click here to book your place.

Open to children of all ages and abilities, the pre-season ‘Learn to Play the Blues way’ camp will be led by Head of Community Jon Phillips with current first team Blues players taking some of the sessions.

Bedford Blues are currently recruiting Community Coaches to support the development and delivery of the Blues Community Rugby programme.

Blues Community continue to work in schools, clubs and organisations across Bedfordshire and require further coaches to deliver projects ahead of the 2018/19 season.

Reporting to the Head of Community, Jon Phillips, these opportunities offer great flexibility with a variety of part-time or occasional sessions available. 


Bedford Blues pre-season campaign has got underway with the players being put through their paces by Head of Strength & Conditioning Jamie Bain and his team.

After a relaxing six weeks off, the Blues players met up at Goldington Road on Monday morning for official introductions and the beginning of eight weeks of training before the first pre-season fixture against Plymouth Albion on Friday 10th August at Brickfields.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce three pre-season fixtures ahead of the 2018/19 Greene King IPA Championship campaign.

With the players returning for pre-season training on Monday morning, the Blues have confirmed a mouth-watering encounter against Premiership champions Saracens on Saturday 18th August (KO 3pm).

The match against Sarries will be the meat in the sandwich of games which include a trip to Plymouth on Friday 10th August to take on Kieran Hallet's Albion before Bishop's Stortford pay a visit to Goldington Road on Friday 24th August.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce another addition to the squad for the 2018/19 Championship campaign with the return of second row powerhouse Mark Flanagan from Saracens.

Flanagan, 28, had a hugely impressive 2015/16 season at Goldington Road helping the Blues reach the Championship play-offs before being snapped up by the Premiership giants.

The lock soon integrated himself within the squad and made several appearances in his first season at Allianz Park, but with game time hard to come by, he made a loan switch to Munster at the start of the 2017/18 season making six appearances for the province.
