Bedford Blues gave their fans something to really cheer about on Saturday afternoon as they ran in five tries against Moseley in a result that secured the Blues stay in the Greene King IPA Championship. 

A double for Jake Sharp along with one apiece for Nick Fenton-Wells, Camilo Parilli-Ocampo and Pat Tapley helped the Blues to secure the bonus point win with James Pritchard converting three of the scores. 

It was tenth versus eleventh in the league as the Midland club arrived at Goldington Road looking to put some distance between themselves and bottom placed Plymouth Albion who had the daunting task of needing a win over Bristol. 

Bedford Blues know that their destiny is in their own hands when Moseley pay a visit to Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon.

With just three games remaining in the 2014/15 Greene King IPA Championship season, the Blues will be fighting tooth and nail to get the all important win that will ensure their status in the league.

But Mike Rayer’s men are fully aware that Moseley - who currently sit one place behind the Blues in 11th place - travel to Bedford desperately needing a win of their own to put some much needed space between themselves and bottom placed Plymouth Albion.

Bedford Blues will be back on familiar territory this weekend for their penultimate home match of the 2014/15 Greene King IPA Championship season as they prepare to face eleventh placed Moseley on Saturday 11th April at Goldington Road (Kick Off 3pm).

Despite one of Bedford’s best performances this season, Mike Rayer’s men suffered a 38-14 defeat to league leaders Bristol last time out in the league before bouncing back against the Army in the annual Mobbs Memorial Match last week.

A Goldington Road crowd of 1,184 were treated to a spectacular try-fest on Wednesday evening as Bedford Blues fought off an impressive Army side to win the 2015 Mobbs Memorial Match 47-24.

The Blues team featured a lot of unfamiliar faces with players from Saracens, Wasps, Cambridge, Hertford, Bishop Stortford and Loughborough University making their mark on the pitch alongside Bedford first team and Blues Academy members.
