This October Half-Term, Bedford Blues Community team will be hosting another rugby camp for children of all ages at Goldington Road as the rugby season gets into full swing.

The three-day rugby camp will run from Tuesday 24th to Thursday 26th October under our new successful coaching direction; ‘Learn to Play the Blues way’ as well as some seasonal surprises and a Halloween themed final day!

Two games into the Greene King IPA Championship season and Bedford Blues are sitting pretty at the top of the table after they picked up another bonus point win thanks to a 44-26 victory over London Scottish.

While many may have been focussing on the return of former Blues to Goldington Road, Bedford set about the task at hand and once again secured a bonus point before the interval thanks to tries from Michael Le Bourgeois, Howard Packman, Lee Dickson and Rich Lane before Packman and debutant Jack Nay dotted down after the interval and Harry Sheppard kicked 14 points.

The Greene King IPA Championship season arrives back at Goldington Road this weekend as Bedford Blues welcome London Scottish in Round Two of the competition.

There has been plenty of coming and goings for both clubs over the summer months - including a few swaps between the two - but both kicked off the campaign with good wins at the Richmond Athletic Ground last weekend.

Bedford Blues Community have taken the decision to move didi rugby classes to Sunday mornings from this weekend after its first trial term in the summer.

The transition to Sunday mornings, at the same time periods and great coaching, has been taken to allow parents a more routine pathway into junior rugby which also takes place on Sunday mornings. The switch in day avoids other competition classes for toddlers and makes logistics easier for the club.

It is with great sadness that the Club have been informed that former player Dominic Wyer-Roberts passed away suddenly on Saturday afternoon, aged just 45.

The thoughts of all at Bedford Blues are with his wife Kate, daughter Grace and sons Augustus and Fabian.

Dom, who played in the second row, made 40 appearances for the first team between 1993-95. He also played once in 1989 as a pupil from Bedford School.
