Ladies Day returns to Goldington Road this Saturday as Bedford Blues prepare to take on Welsh qualifiers Cross Keys in their first home match of the British and Irish Cup with 2 for 1 entry for all ladies on the day.

A reminder that gates open at 12 noon leaving plenty of time to take full advantage of the complimentary rosé and canapés available for all ladies on arrival to the marquee before 2:30pm (while stocks last).

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce that ‘£3 Happy Hours’ will continue this Saturday at the home match against Cross Keys on Ladies Day in the upstairs Eagle Bar.

To ensure the gentlemen at Ladies Day aren’t left out, Wells Eagle IPA, McEwan’s Lager, Young’s London Stout, Wells Eagle Smooth and Somersby Cider will all be available at just £3 a pint from 12 noon until 14:30 and again at 17:00 until 20:00. This offer will only be available upstairs in the Eagle Bar, with a saving of nearly £1 on most pump beers so don’t miss out!

Following Bedford Blues’ success against Jersey last time out, Chairman Geoff Irvine has urged the rugby community to continue showing their support for the town’s club by keeping the attendance figures up and proving what the Blues means to the region.

The Blues Chairman, who is due to stand down in May 2016, said: “I would like to thank everyone who attended the first home victory of the season last Saturday despite the bad weather pre-match and helped make Goldington Road a fortress.

Bedford suffered late heartbreak in their opening British & Irish Cup match as a last gasp conversion by former Blue Kieran Hallett saw Cornish Pirates edge a thrilling contest, 35-34.

Mike Rayer's men travelled to Penzance on the back of two Championship victories and must surely have thought they had extended their winning run when Steffan Jones crossed for his second try which put them into the lead after 73 minutes.

They couldn't hold out though and had to make do with both a try and losing bonus point at The Mennaye after Jim Wigglesworth, Pat Tapley, Villiami Hakalo and Dean Adamson had also crossed the whitewash for the visitors.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce that captain Nick Fenton-Wells and hooker Charlie Clare have been selected in the Championship XV squad to face Canada at Sixways Stadium on Sunday 2nd November.

Skipper Fenton-Wells joined the Blues permanently this season following a successful two-year loan period from Saracens and was announced as captain for the 2014/15 season having made an enormous impression in his time at Goldington Road.
