1st XV News

You could be forgiven for thinking that Bedford Blues players are the only ones getting ready for the season ahead but our fantastic Followers are also gearing up for the new Greene King IPA Championship campaign.

Before the business of league rugby begins with a Friday night trip to Nottingham, the Followers are looking into the possibility of taking a coach down to West London for when the Blues face Ealing Trailfinders in their second pre-season friendly.

Do you have the gift of the gab? Have you got the charm of George Clooney? How about the wit of Eric Morecambe? And fingers crossed you’ll have the rugby nous of Bill McLaren? Well if you can answer yes to these four questions then you could be the person that we are looking for.
 
After many years of fantastic service, Sam Roberts has reluctantly given up the Goldington Road microphone to take up the fantastic role of commentating on Premiership Rugby matches (another Blue pinched by the Prem!). While everyone at the club is delighted for Sam, it does mean that boots need to be filled.
 

Bedford Blues players were well and truly put through their paces last night (24 July) after swapping the gym and training field of Goldington Road for the boats and river of Bedford Rowing Club.
 
As well as taking to the water, the Blues and the Rowing Club were also raising awareness and funds for Testicular Cancer charities.
 
After Thursday evening’s usual training session, Mike Rayer’s men headed down to Bedford Rowing Club where they were split into a number of teams and then shared amongst the rowing club’s coaches.
 

Bedford Blues are pleased to announce some significant signings ahead of the 2014/15 Greene King Championship season from Aviva Premiership side Saracens.
 
England U20 World Cup winners Nathan Earle, Hayden Thompson-Stringer, Nick Tompkins, Maro Itoje and Bedford’s very own Aaron Morris will all be available at various stages of the season on Dual Registration.
 

Bedford Blues are once again delighted to be able to offer the club’s Season Ticket holders the opportunity to apply for tickets for this coming season’s England Autumn Internationals.
 
Stuart Lancaster’s squad – which will no doubt include a number of Goldington Road Alumni – have a tough November ahead of them and Bedford Blues Season Ticket holders will have the chance to be at the Test matches against New Zealand, South Africa and Australia. 
 
Talking about the task ahead, Lancaster said: “To be able to take on these teams in successive weeks is ideal preparation for the World Cup and will tell us a lot about where we are one year out.
