On August 18 rugby’s greatest prize, the Webb Ellis Cup, will visit Goldington Road, the home of Bedford Blues, as part of the Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour.

Launching on June 10, 100 days to go to the opening match, the Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour will travel through Scotland, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Wales and England before arriving at Twickenham Stadium on September 18 ahead of the Opening Ceremony.

As part of the Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour, Bedford Blues will welcome the Webb Ellis Cup between 20:00 – 22:00 in the Blues Marquee for all supporters to view and take a selfie on stage from 20:30.

Following our earlybird deadline last weekend, Bedford Blues are pleased to announce fantastic renewal rates of 2015/16 Season Tickets and would like to thank our loyal supporter base who continue to back the Blues.

To further encourage new supporters, the Club are offering a special extension of the earlybird Season Ticket prices to new members only if applications forms are submitted before the end of June.

This weekend Bedford Blues earlybird Season Ticket prices draw to a close, but for any applications sent across the weekend the Club will hold the discount prices. The Blues 2015/16 membership campaign saw another successive price freeze for renewing Season Ticket holder supporters. Below, we have produced a short video and rationale around our 'Join the Blues family' showreal demostrating the real people who make the club what it is... YOU! 

The aim is simple; to provide our supporters with more than just a ticket to all matches, more than a bucket full of additional benefits, but that of being part of our community family. 

Bedford Blues have taken their squad number up to 31 after two more players signed new deals to remain at Goldington Road for the 2015/16 Greene King IPA Championship season.

Fly-half Steffan Jones and back row forward Josh Buggea have both put pen-to-paper to remain at the Blues for the new campaign.

Jones, 24, joined the Blues on a permanent deal in January 2015 following his involvement with Wales in the HSBC Sevens World Series. Jones first signed for Bedford in the summer on a year long loan move from Newport Gwent Dragons, but was recalled by the region in early November before heading off with the National Sevens Team.

The quartet of stars are lock Harry Wells, scrum-half Peter White, fly-half Jake Sharp and centre Mike Le Bourgeois.

Speaking to the official Club website this morning about the four re-signings, Blues Director of Rugby Mike Rayer said:

“It is extremely pleasing that these four, talented young players have signed on once again for another campaign at Goldington Road.

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.
