The Blues capped off their pre-season campaign with an impressive 13-27 win over Welsh Giants the Scarlets at Llandovery's Church Bank on Saturday afternoon.

Despite trailing 13-5 at the interval, Mike Rayer’s men put in a big performance to oversee the Pro 12 region with tries coming courtesy of Joel Conlon, Mark Flanagan, Dean Adamson and the evergreen Paul Tupai.

Just as important though was the physicality displayed by the Blues along with a staunch defence that limited the chances available to the hosts - something that Bedford will be eager to carry on once the Greene King IPA Championship season kicks off next weekend.

The Club are pleased to announce further details on the special ‘Meet the Players’ evening on Thursday 3rd September from 6pm at Goldington Road, exclusively for Season Ticket holders.

The new incentive was this year included in your Season Ticket package with an early chance to hear the views of the Director of Rugby, captain and other selected players ahead of the 2015-16 campaign.

A fans’ forum will follow the end of training at 7pm, but supporters will have a chance to mingle with the new recruits and existing Blues players between 6pm – 8pm. The players will also be modelling the new away jersey.

Bedford Blues head off to Wales this weekend to complete their pre-season fixture list with a tricky tie against Pro 12 giants the Scarlets on Saturday afternoon.

Mike Rayer’s men will be making their way to Llandovery RFC’s Church Bank Playing Fields to take on one of the biggest teams in Wales rugby and a side who defeated Championship rival Jersey 40-27 last weekend.

The Blues take a squad of 26 players across the Brecon Beacons but will be without skipper Nick Fenton-Wells who has suffered a back spasm while Hayden Thompson-Stringer misses out with a hip injury.

There can be no better way to enjoy Bedford Blues away matches in the Greene King IPA Championship this season than by joining the Bedford Rugby Followers Association on one of their coaches.

The Followers have worked tirelessly to support the Blues over the years and this season will be no different as they once again provide travelling fans with a cost effective way to get to every Championship game as well as B&I Cup fixtures.

This season’s Former Players Autumn Luncheon will be held on Saturday 3 October in the Blues Marquee as Bedford lock horns with Nottingham in the Blues second home league outing of the new campaign.

The hospitality lunch and entertainment affords a wonderful opportunity for those former players who are able to attend to have an update with their contemporaries, reminisce on days gone by and equally importantly to show their support for the current Blues side.

A three course lunch will be followed by an address by FPA Chairman Leigh Mansell before we hear from today’s squad prior to the 3pm Kick Off. Gates open at 12 noon with arrival at 12:30 prompt.
