Bedford Blues are pleased to launch their annual Rugby and Beer Festival Weekender at the next home match v Jersey on Friday 9th February and the screening of Six Nations coverage on Saturday 10th February.

In collaboration with the Eagle Brewery and Marston’s this year’s two-day beer festival at Goldington Road is due to be bigger and better with our widest range of ales to date.

Whilst the match itself is a much-anticipated clash against Jersey Reds, a glass or two of the best ales in the country should make the top-class rugby even more enjoyable as the Blues hope to continue their fine form.

Bedford Blues are happy to confirm that the British & Irish Cup quarter-final against Ulster Ravens will kick-off at 3pm on Saturday 31st March.

Tickets will be on sale from Monday 29th January and can be purchased with a £4 discount via the Blues website www.bedfordrugby.co.uk.

Ted Carroll and Bedford Blues are delighted to welcome former Bath, Saracens and England prop David Flatman to Goldington Road for a Sportsman's dinner on Friday 2nd March.

Now a renowned TV pundit and podcast host, Flatman - who won eight caps for England - will be sharing stories from his stellar rugby career along with a few opinions on the state of the current game and maybe a view on the Six Nations which will have two rounds remaining.

Following a meeting of the organising committee, it has been confirmed today that Bedford Blues will face Ulster in the quarter-final of the British & Irish Cup with the game taking place at Goldington Road on the Easter weekend.

Also determined at the meeting was the draw for the semi-finals which - should Bedford progress from the game against Ulster - would see Bedford travel away from home to face the winner of the match between Ealing Trailfinders and Yorkshire Carnegie or Cornish Pirates* on the weekend of 20th/21st/22nd April.

Bedford Blues put in a workman like performance to beat Nottingham 32-15 at Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon and ensure that their name is in the hat for the quarter-final draw.

A try double for Dean Adamson along with one each for George Edgson and Ed Taylor secured the try bonus while Will Hooley kicked 12 points during a solid performance in miserable conditions.

Speaking after the game, prop Alex Penny said: “It was a good performance and a cracking effort form the whole 22 particularly when you consider the conditions this afternoon. We pulled together and got the job done in the end.
