After 1,760 pulsating minutes of Championship rugby, the season has finally concluded with Bedford Blues finishing in fourth position to set up a mouth-watering semi-final tie against table-topping Bristol this Sunday 1 May (KO 3:15pm).

The two sides have played each other four times already this season with the win tally finely balanced at two each - one in the league and one in the cup - meaning that Sunday’s first leg at Goldington Road is all set to be an instant classic.

GREENE KING IPA CHAMPIONSHIP DREAM XV 2015-16

Following a hugely successful season which has seen Bedford Blues finishing fourth in the league to set up a play-off encounter with Bristol, Jake Sharp and Pat Tapley have been included in the Greene King IPA Championship Dream Team.

Opposition coaches voted that fly half Sharp and winger Tapley had performed the best in their respective positions throughout the 2015-16 campaign.

Ahead of the Championship play-off semi-final, Blues can confirm that captain Nick Fenton-Wells has agreed a deal to sign for opponents Bristol.
 
As a consequence of this decision, the club feels that it is in the best interest of all parties that Nick does not play any part in the play-off games and he will therefore not be available for selection.
 
Bedford Blues Chairman Geoff Irvine said: "I appreciate that supporters will feel very disappointed but the club has been put in a compromising position due to Nick’s decision and, as such, we feel that this is the correct course of action to take given the circumstances."
 

An additional allocation of Eagle Stand and Ground Entry tickets have now been released for the Play-Off Semi Final on Sunday 1 May v Bristol with the best seats in the house available.

Season Ticket holders have now passed the deadline for early purchase of their existing seat, but will find a good selection of premium seats available online for just £20 in the stand.

Supporters will be able to purchase tickets for next weekend online at www.theclubshop.co.uk/bedfordblues for the quickest transaction or pop into the Club this week between 9am - 6pm.

London Scottish were deserved winners of the Bedford Blues U19 10-a-side Tournament, beating a strong Loughborough University side by 21pts – 7 in an entertaining final 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 six sides participating in two pools of three, there was non-stop rugby all day.
