This season’s Guard of Honour is again partnered by SSG Activities and Events who together with the Club are delighted to bring you the opportunity to form the welcome tunnel for both teams running out at Goldington Road.

The SSG Guard of Honour experience is available for primary aged children from local schools and community groups, giving them a fabulous opportunity to attend a Bedford Blues home match and watch pitch side having waved the teams onto the pitch and received their welcome pack.

Bedford Blues rounded off their pre-season campaign with a convincing 52-12 victory over Pontypridd at Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon.

Bedford ran in eight tries during the afternoon with Dean Adamson, Tom Farrell (2), George Edgson, Tom James, Ben Adams, Tom Whiteley and Tom Griffiths all crossing the wash while Myles Dorrian converted once and Jake Sharp chipped over five more.

Bedford Blues have named their squad to face Pontypridd at Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon in the final pre-season fixture ahead of the 2016/17 Championship campaign.
 
Saturday's game is the return fixture from a clash between the two sides who met a fortnight ago with Bedford running out 66-14 winners at the Welfare Ground, home of Cilfynydd RFC. The Blues ran in ten tries during the outing but will be expecting a much tougher challenge this weekend with both teams gearing up their preparation for the season ahead.
 

The inaugural Bedford Blues Community Rugby Department summer camp is well underway with around 100 youngsters enjoying plenty of sunshine and plenty of rugby at Goldington Road.

Following the launch of the Community Rugby Department in June and the appointment of Former Blue Ben Gulliver as its head earlier this month, the buzz has certainly hit the town as children of all ages came through the Goldington Road gates on Tuesday morning to participate in the three-day camp.

The Blues are straight back to Goldington Road this weekend for their final pre-season challenge against Pontypridd in our first Saturday afternoon of the season (Kick Off 15:00).

Pontypridd, Welsh Principality Premiership winners four out of the last five seasons, will be looking to level proceedings and seek revenge following Bedford’s comprehensive victory a fortnight ago in South Wales.

Whilst Mike Rayer’s troops will be dusting themselves down after a tough meeting with Saracens last Friday night which heralded plenty of positives for the Blues ahead of Championship action on the first weekend of September.
