Bedford Blues are pleased to announce details of the revamped 2014/15 End of Season Gala Dinner at Goldington Road. There is limited availability for this much anticipated event with the Blues players and coaches as we mark the end of another Championship season with a special night of entertainment.

Open to both male and female, this year’s black tie gala dinner is on Friday 15th May and promises a fantastic evening for all in attendance with a superb four course dinner and awards presentation, as well as AV displays with match highlights and videos from throughout the season.

Chris Easton, the Blues Academy captain, has been selected to be one of 30 players to attend a training session with Graham Rowntree (England Forwards Coach) and Mike Catt (England Attacking Skills Coach), at Twickenham next week.

The day includes a welcome briefing at Twickenham Stadium, home of England Rugby, before the training session, followed by a Q&A session with Graham Rowntree and Mike Catt in the England team changing room at Twickenham.

The Blues Academy ended their season by winning the inaugural Bedford Blues Under 19 10-a-side tournament at Goldington Road.

The competition was designed to showcase the player development work being carried out by a number of Championship clubs as well as giving the players a competitive focus to end the season.

With eight sides participating in two pools of four, there was non-stop rugby all day. 

Sadly, a fantastic Goldington Road crowd of 2517 just wasn’t enough to guide Bedford Blues to victory as Mike Rayer’s men suffered a disappointing end to their 2014/15 Championship season, losing out 17-26 to fifth placed Nottingham on Saturday.

There were signs of an early breakthrough for the Blues when Jake Sharp dummied a kick to create a gap that he duly ran through, gaining valuable yards towards the Nottingham try line but Bedford failed to capitalise.

However it wasn’t long before the hosts got the first points of the game as the Blues were awarded a penalty in the 7th minute and Sharp made no mistake to give his side a 3-0 lead.
