The curtain comes down on the local club 2017-18 season with the Bombardier East Midlands Cup Final between Bedford Athletic and Peterborough Lions at Goldington Road tomorrow, Wednesday 2nd May (Kick Off 7:45pm).

Bedford Athletic will be looking for a seventh East Midlands’ title, having featured in the very first EMRU Cup Final back in 1972. Their last Cup Final success came in 2016 at the home of the Blues against Northampton Old Scouts.

Two members of the Bedford Blues squad have been included in the 2017/18 Greene King IPA Championship Dream Team.

Following a fantastic season which saw the Blues finish third in the league and reach the semi-final of the B&I Cup, Captain Michael Le Bourgeois and winger Dean Adamson were both named in the Dream Team, while there were honourable mentions for hooker Tom Lindsay and scrum-half Lee Dickson.

Bedford Blues capped off a fine season with a bonus point 28-12 win over Richmond which secured third place in the Greene King IPA Championship.

This was by no means a perfect victory, but it was typical Blues, as they ran in two late scores to seal the bonus point and finish only behind financial titans Bristol and Ealing Trailfinders in the league table.

It was squeaky bum time heading into the final few minutes with Bedford leading 14-12 and being penned in their own half by the visitors, but Rich Lane and Jordan Burns crossed in the dying moments to ensure everyone left Goldington Road in high spirits.

Bedford Blues Championship season comes to an intriguing end on Saturday afternoon with everything still to play for as Richmond visit Goldington Road.

After losing the midweek encounter with Nottingham, the Blues know that the race for third place in the Greene King IPA Championship is still on and a bonus point win would secure the accolade for Mike Rayer's men.

However, Bedford know that they are in for one hell of a match against a Richmond side which has truly enjoyed its second full season in the league and have only won one less game than the Blues as Round 22 approaches.

Bedford Blues 2018/19 Season Tickets are now on sale with a 6th successive early bird price freeze and a £6 saving on every match day for what promises to be another exciting season at Goldington Road.

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.
