Don’t miss out on the Followers’ fabulous Autumn Ball on Saturday 11th November in the Blues Marquee.

Bedford’s one and only Sam Roberts has some rip-roaring fun lined up with critically acclaimed band, Blurred Lines, the highlight of the evening playing their fantastic set at Goldington Road. Check them out for a preview at http://www.silverdogmusic.co.uk/blurred-lines.htm.

Bedford Blues would like to send best wishes to fullback James Wilson who has joined Premiership side Bath Rugby.

James signed a short-term deal with Bedford Blues in September and featured in two Championship games against Ealing Trailfinders and Bristol.

Everyone at Goldington Road would like to wish James all the best at the Recreation Ground.

Bedford Blues opened their British & Irish Cup campaign with a bonus point win over Nottingham at Lady Bay on Sunday afternoon.

Six tries ensured that the Blues headed home with maximum points but they were a little disappointed that Nottingham managed to run in four tries of their own to secure a bonus point of their own.

The game was only two minutes old when the Blues opened the scoring. Following on from his superb run last weekend to set up a try for Jordan Burns, George Edgson showed more skills to go on a mazing run to score but the extras went begging.

Bedford Blues have named their team to take on Nottingham in the first round of the British & Irish Cup this Sunday at Lady Bay.
 
After six league games, the two teams are evenly matched having won four and lost two and they have an almost identical points for and against record. Games between the two are always hotly contested and much of the same can be expected this weekend.
 

A 34-14 win over Rotherham Titans gave Bedford Blues two victories on the bounce in the Greene King IPA Championship.

The Blues ran in five tries yesterday to give them a bonus point victory, with Dean Adamson and Jordan Burns grabbing a score apiece, before Rich Lane ran in Bedford’s fifth with a superb solo effort.

The game started slowly, with the two sides battling in the midfield and the only real chance of note came in the fourth minute, when Adamson’s kick forward gave the winger something to chase, only for the ball to roll out of bounds.
