1st XV News

The Bedford Blues players returned to pre-season training this week and were immediately put through their paces by new Strength and Conditioning Coach Andrew Petts.

The lads could have been forgiven for thinking that they would be eased back into things but within minutes of introductions the players were being sent on sprints, wrestling one another, taking on the watt bike and putting on the gloves for a boxing challenge – and all of this before a ball was even touched.

Following confirmation of the new structure, the 2014-15 British & Irish Cup fixtures have been unveiled with Bedford Blues finding themselves in Pool Four alongside Cornish Pirates, Doncaster Knights and Wales 1.
 
Played across five pools, each with four teams, the English, Irish and Welsh clubs making up this year's British & Irish Cup will begin the new season campaign during the second weekend of October (10/11/12).

Bedford Blues will kick off their 2014/15 Greene King IPA Championship campaign with a trip to Nottingham on the opening weekend.

The Blues fans only have to wait a week for competitive rugby to return to Goldington Road as Bedford play host to Rotherham on Saturday 13th September (TBC) and they will also note that the away trip to Jersey falls on St Valentine's Day - a perfect opportunity to take your loved one away for the weekend.

Bedford Blues fans will be back at Goldington Road on Saturday morning as they carry out the fourth tidy-up session ahead of the 2014/15 Championship season. 

Following successful sessions members of Bedford Blues Followers Association will be at the ground from 8.30am and are looking for other fans to join them as they continue in the clean up of Goldington Road.

As with last weekend, gardening gloves are advisable and please bring any small garden tools that you may have that could be of use.

Bedford Blues preparations for the 2014/15 Greene King IPA Championship season have continued with the addition of two new faces to the Goldington Road club.

Back row forward Josh Buggea, 20, has signed on from Worcester Warriors and brings plenty of strength and enthusiasm to he pack.

Nuneaton-born Josh started playing rugby at 11 years old when he went to Bablake in Coventry - the school that helped to produce 1974 British & Irish Lion Geoff Evans and recent England fly half Shane Geraghty.
