Bedford Blues will be hoping to make it two on the bounce when they head West to face Cornish Pirates in the Greene King IPA Championship on Sunday afternoon.

Games between the two sides are always hotly contested affairs with score lines usually being separated by just a handful of points. Bedford will also be looking to continue the form that saw them overcome Yorkshire Carnegie 15-10 in front of a large Goldington Road crowd under the Friday night lights.

Jim Wigglesworth may be in awe of James Pritchard’s legacy at Bedford Blues but he is intent on making sure the legendary full-back is not a sure-fire starter upon his return to the club.

Pritchard is the Blues’ all-time leading point scorer and at 35 is still going strong for both club and country, as part of Canada’s squad for this year’s autumn internationals.

And though losing their evergreen No.15 is a blow the Blues could do without, one person making the most of his absence is new signing Wigglesworth.

Bedford Blues welcomed Junior Reporters Gregory Hicks and Amie Gray to Goldington Road on Friday night to take in all of the action from the game against Yorkshire Carnegie and then pose some challenging questions to Phil Boulton and Jake Sharp – Enjoy!

As the evening sky fell over Goldington Road on Friday the 14th, the crowds gathered to watch Bedford Blues take on Yorkshire Carnegie. 

An exhilarating first ten minutes unfortunately saw Blues captain Nick Fenton-Wells coming off with injury and being replaced by Josh Buggea. Alarmingly, David Doherty scored his first try of the season for the opposing team, making the score 0-7 after Harry Leonard converted. 

It was a case of Friday night delights for Bedford Blues as they rediscovered winning ways with a 15-10 victory over Yorkshire Carnegie.

Tries from Darryl Veenendaal and Jim Wigglesworth helped the Blues to victory, but a lot of credit has to go to the forwards who gave their backs a great platform on which to work.

It will be 'Friday Night Lights' for Bedford Blues players and fans tomorrow evening when they welcome Yorkshire Carnegie to Goldington Road.
 
The Blues ran in two superb tries against Worcester Warriors last Friday but it wasn't enough to stop the former Premiership side racking up a 42-12 victory at Sixways. Despite the defeat, there was a huge improvement on the field, something that pleased Blues Director of Rugby Mike Rayer.
