Bedford Blues will be looking for some festive cheer on Saturday afternoon as they head to the Richmond Athletic Ground to face London Scottish in the GreeneKing IPA Championship.

As the second half of the season gets underway, the battle hardened Blues are looking forward to getting back to League action after two really physical encounters versus Munster ‘A’ in the B & I Cup.

When the Blues welcomed the Exiles to Goldington Road in Round Two of the competition, Bedford ran in six tries to pick up a 44-26 win but Scottish fought back towards the end of the game to pick up a four try bonus point.

February brings a cerebral challenge to Goldington Road with the return of Jackie Markham's BRFA General Knowledge Quiz in the Scrum Hall.

Set a date in your diary for Friday 2nd February 2018 as the Blues players enjoy a break weekend from action.

Doors to the Scrum Hall are open at 7pm with the quiz starting at 7:30pm, so be there early to secure your table and get the drinks in before the eggheads get to work.

Teams can be up to six people, but if you don't have a team come along and we'll join you with some like-minded supporters.

Bedford Blues were pleased to present a record breaking cheque of £7,000 to Macmillan Cancer Support at last weekend’s match following yet another fantastic Ladies Day on Saturday 21st October.

The Blues certainly made Ladies Day 2017 a day to remember on the field with a staggering 43-19 win over Ospreys, but the club are equally proud of a cause much bigger than rugby.

Supporters raised the staggering amount for the club’s new Cancer Charity Partner Macmillan through raffles, auctions and collections at the club’s tenth Ladies Day event.

There was to be very little Christmas cheer at Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon as Munster ‘A’ gate crashed the party with a 12-16 win in the British & Irish Cup.

A week after the Blues had defeated the Irish outfit in Cork, the men in red put in a solid defensive display and finished their chances to keep the Pool wide open with two games left to play.

Bedford did cross the whitewash twice with good scores from Dean Adamson and Camilo Parilli-Ocampo, but a try from prop Ciaran Parker and the boot of Bill Johnston ensured that Munster ‘A’ returned home happy.

Bedford Blues have named their 22 man squad for the festive fixture against Munster 'A' in the British & Irish Cup this weekend.

After the 14-25 win at Irish Independent Park last Friday, the Blues make five changes to the starting line-up with four coming in the forwards and one in the backs.

The most noteable change is a starting place for Bedford stalwart Paul Tupai who will be making his 250th appearance for the Blues. Toops - who is celebrating his testimonial year - starts at blindside flanker and joins an illustrious band of players to achieve the impressive number of Bedford caps.

Bedford Blues are back at Goldington Road this Saturday 16th December for a festive fixture v Munster A in the return B&I Cup battle (KO 3pm).

Sitting first and second in the group, the Blues will be looking to solidify their place at the top following last weekend’s impressive victory in Cork, but expect a reaction from the reigning champions who will be hunting revenge for last Friday’s encounter.

Mike Rayer’s men came from 14 points down in Ireland to turn things around, scoring 25 unanswered points with tries from Sean McCarthey and a brace for top try scorer Dean Adamson as Will Hooley added two conversions and two penalties.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce the appointment of former player and current Director of Rugby at Moulton College, Jon Phillips, as the new Head of Community.  

Phillips has a very impressive playing and coaching CV in addition to 10 years’ experience running the delivery at one of the region’s leading rugby education centres.

Three was the magic number for Bedford Blues in Cork on Friday night as they ran in three tries against Munster A to pick up their third win out of three in the British & Irish Cup.

Having trailed 14-0 after half an hour, the Blues fought back magnificently in tough conditions with a brace of tries from Dean Adamson and one for Ed Taylor as well as ten points from the boot of Will Hooley to secure a 14-25 win over the current Cup holders.

It is a trip to the unknown for Bedford Blues in Round Three of the British & Irish Cup as they head to Cork to face reigning champions Munster A on Friday evening.

It will be a first competitive meeting between the clubs in this competition and Bedford have named a strong 22 man squad - including new signing Huw Worthington - as they look to continue their good form in the cup.

In the opening two games of the Pool stages, both Munster and Blues have secured convincing wins over Nottingham and Ospreys Select, with only a single point separating the teams as Bedford head the group.
