Membership offers supporters the chance to enjoy an enthralling Blues’ campaign with large savings on match day prices and a host of additional benefits when purchased before the end of June.

Bedford Blues return to Goldington Road this Saturday for their final home Championship match of the season against Richmond in the End of Season Party (Kick Off 3pm).

Join the Blues to mark the close of another fantastic campaign with live band Blue Eyed Souls and post-match party, including player Q&A, as we celebrate a thrilling season with Mike Rayer’s men aim to seal third position in the table.

The home side will hope to bounce back from three defeats to cement the coveted third place with a bonus point victory required against a Richmond side that have lost their last three league outings.

Bedford Blues are delighted to confirm two more players have put pen to paper on new deals to remain at Goldington Road for the 2018/19 Championship season.

Prop Camilo Parilli-Ocampo and flanker Justin Blanchet have both agreed new deals to extend their stays with the Blues.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce that skipper Michael Le Bourgeois has been nominated for the Greene King IPA Championship Player of the Year Award.

The Greene King IPA Championship Player of the Year Award recognises the outstanding player from the Greene King IPA Championship during the 2017-18 season, as voted by the Championship club captains.

Speaking about his nomination, Le Bourgeois said: “It’s a huge honour and has definitely put a big smile on my face. To be nominated for this award definitely comes down to the terrific club environment at Bedford, and the exciting style of game we’ve played this season.

A late flourish from patched-up Bedford wasn’t enough to claim a losing bonus point as they succumbed to a comprehensive 41-21 defeat at Nottingham tonight.

With this re-arranged midweek fixture coming so soon after the Blues’ B&I Cup semi-final defeat, depleted Bedford fought back valiantly late on with tries from Chris Czekaj, Jacob Fields and Elliot Clement-Hill, who also converted all three, but by that time the damage had already been done by the Green and Whites who ran in six tries on the night.
