1st XV News

The Followers Association have a date for your diary as they host a new Summer Event this year for all supporters to attend.

It's open to all and promises to be an improved and much revamped event to kick start pre-season with many of the new faces set to join. So brush off the tux, freshen up that cocktail dress and join us on Saturday 9 July for a Cocktail and Casino Evening with bubbles on arrival.

The main bar will be open all evening and we have a Disco so you can dance 'til late.

Remember you don't have to be a Follower; anyone can join in the fun, so bring a friend or two or even more!

Bedford Blues and Cornish Pirates could both have been wearing black and white hoops on Saturday afternoon as 3.035 fans inside Goldington Road were treated to a Barbarian-esq encounter with 15 tries being run in during a 54-46 win for the home side. You can see all of the tries HERE.

A hat-trick for Dean Adamson along with one apiece for Henry Taylor, Mike Le Bourgeois, Paul Tupai, George Perkins and Harry Wells did the damage while Jake Sharp converted six and Myles Dorrian one. 

Bedford Blues return to Goldington Road this weekend looking to bounce back from last weekend's defeat to Yorkshire Carnegie as they host Cornish Pirates in the Greene King IPA Championship.

Games between the two are often high scoring and close affairs with the reverse this season being a perfect example. Bedford had looked as though they were heading towards a bonus point win thanks to tries from Pat Tapley, Tom Griffiths, Joel Conlon and Mike Le Bourgeois, but a dogged Pirates team didn't give in and snatched a 32-31 win with a converted try right at the death.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce the signing of exciting Loughborough Students hooker Jacob Fields as well as the re-signing of Sam James for the 2016/17 season.
 
The news comes hot off the heels of the announcement that Charlie Clare will be moving on from Goldington Road to join Premiership side, and near neighbours, Northampton Saints at Franklins Gardens in the Aviva Premiership.
 

Bedford Blues can confirm that all-time leading point scorer, James Pritchard, will be leaving the club at the end of the season to take up a player/coach role with National One side Coventry.

Pritchard, 36, or Skippy as he is known, celebrated his testimonial with the club last season and has been a key figure at Goldington Road for more than a decade.
