This Saturday will mark not only the start of the new Championship season, but the official launch of the refurbished upstairs Eagle Bar.

The Club invite all supporters to take a look at the refurbishment and enjoy a beer, whilst also enjoying the launch on a new match day initiative; The Michael R Peters Final Whistle.

The Final Whistle will take place not long after the end of the match in the Eagle Bar with a host, coach and player giving their fresh reaction to the 80 minutes of action and it kicks off this week with DoR Mike Rayer and captain Michael Le Bourgeois.

This season’s Guard of Honour is again partnered by SSG Activities and Events who together with the Club are delighted to bring you the opportunity to form the welcome tunnel for both teams running out at Goldington Road.

The SSG Guard of Honour experience is available for primary aged children from local schools and community groups, giving them a fabulous opportunity to attend a Bedford Blues home match and watch pitch side having waved the teams onto the pitch and received their welcome pack.

Bedford Blues rounded off their pre-season campaign with a convincing 52-12 victory over Pontypridd at Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon.

Bedford ran in eight tries during the afternoon with Dean Adamson, Tom Farrell (2), George Edgson, Tom James, Ben Adams, Tom Whiteley and Tom Griffiths all crossing the wash while Myles Dorrian converted once and Jake Sharp chipped over five more.

Bedford Blues have named their squad to face Pontypridd at Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon in the final pre-season fixture ahead of the 2016/17 Championship campaign.
 
Saturday's game is the return fixture from a clash between the two sides who met a fortnight ago with Bedford running out 66-14 winners at the Welfare Ground, home of Cilfynydd RFC. The Blues ran in ten tries during the outing but will be expecting a much tougher challenge this weekend with both teams gearing up their preparation for the season ahead.
 

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce that five further players have joined the Blues Academy Development Squad.

The Blues announced recently a new approach to developing young players for a future in the professional game with the set-up of the Academy Development Squad.  These players will train as part of the Blues first team squad with their Strength & Conditioning programmes being overseen by the Blues first team coaches.  If they are not playing for the Blues, then they will play with a partner club in the National Leagues where they will have the opportunity to develop by playing regular adult league rugby.
