Bedford Blues and Saracens will once again be working together next season as it was confirmed that five talented youngsters will be heading to Goldington Road for the 2015/16 Greene King IPA Championship season.

The likes of Owen Farrell, George Kruis, Jackson Wray, James Short, Ben Ransom and Will Fraser all gained valuable experience with the Blues before going on to make a huge impact with Saracens and the same is hoped for the current crop who will be heading up the M1 from Allianz Park.

The NSPCC has teamed up with the Bedford Blues, who are supporting the charity’s latest campaign – The Really Big Board Game Day, and are appealing to people across Bedford to stage an event and help make the day a regular in the social calendar.

If you’re a Monopoly fanatic, an Operation obsessive or a Buckaroo evangelist, then why not get a few friends, neighbours or colleagues together to play your favourite board games on Friday 15 May, and you can help to protect childhoods from abuse and neglect.

Goldington Road was treated to a try-fest on Friday night as Bedford Blues players of past and present came together to celebrate James Pritchard’s Testimonial Season.

Skippy’s Year is drawing to a close, but the best was saved for last as the Blues legend invited past teammates, and a few other friends, to go head-to-head with the current crop as a Bedford Select XV took on Skippy’s Invitational under the Friday Night Lights.

Ahead of kick-off, the thousand strong crowd were treated to some exceptional rugby displays from around 150 Junior Blues who had the chance to compete on the Goldington Road turf before the main event.

James Pritchard’s Testimonial Match kicks off this Friday 8th May, as a Bedford Blues select XV will be taking on Skippy’s Invitational XV for a special event to honour his commitment to the club (Kick Off 7:30pm).

With many former Blues’ stars returning to Goldington Road, Bedford supporters are sure to be treated to a spectacular game of rugby in aid of Bedford’s favourite import.

Bedford Blues are pleased to announce details of the revamped 2014/15 End of Season Gala Dinner at Goldington Road. There is limited availability for this much anticipated event with the Blues players and coaches as we mark the end of another Championship season with a special night of entertainment.

Open to both male and female, this year’s black tie gala dinner is on Friday 15th May and promises a fantastic evening for all in attendance with a superb four course dinner and awards presentation, as well as AV displays with match highlights and videos from throughout the season.
