In less than four weeks, Bedford Blues will be kicking off their pre-season campaign with a triangular encounter against near neighbours Ampthill and Old Albanians.
 
On Saturday 15th August, the Goldington Road gates will be opened with the Blues facing National One opponents Ampthill at 2pm before taking on Old Abanians at 3pm. The afternoon will be rounded off with Ampthill pitting their wits against Old Albanians at 4pm with all games lasting 40 minutes.
 

Bedford Blues and Saracens are delighted to announce an extension on their current working agreement which will see two players moving to Goldington Road for the 2015/16 Championship season.

Joel Conlon and Tom Griffiths have both signed deals with the Blues for the coming campaign but, in an emergency, they will be able to return to Saracens on loan.

Blues Chairman Geoff Irvine said: “We have a fantastic working relationship with Saracens and this further deal means that Bedford benefit from having two impressive signings while Saracens are safe in the knowledge that should they need to call on them, they can do so.

The 2015/16 British & Irish Cup fixtures have been revealed as the cross-border competition enters its seventh year with Bedford Blues being grouped with Bristol, Ulster Ravens and Scarlets Premiership Select.

Following a wide-ranging review of competition structures across the game in Wales, Welsh teams in the competition will be represented by combined Regional Premiership squad teams.

The Blues will open their cup campaign with an away trip to Wales to face the Scarlets combined team on the weekend of 12/13/14 November before welcoming Ulster Ravens to Goldington Road at 3pm on Saturday 21st November.

Bedford Blues are delighted to bring supporters an opportunity to buy tickets for #ParkLive and the return of Bedford Proms on Friday 31 July and Saturday 1 August, whilst raising funds for your rugby club with every advance purchased ticket.

Brought to you by LPH Concerts, the Friday session will see seminal Manchester band Happy Mondays headline the first ever #ParkLive with support from Ash, the Stereo MCs and local Bedford band Scruff.

The Blues squad were treated to an afternoon and evening on the farm last Thursday as they finished off block one of pre-season at Woburn Country Foods in Haynes, Bedfordshire.

On arrival the squad were treated to a butchery demonstration from ‘Speed Boner’ Babar where they watched the master butcher expertly bone out a carcass of prime Bedfordshire beef.
