A Goldington Road crowd of 1,184 were treated to a spectacular try-fest on Wednesday evening as Bedford Blues fought off an impressive Army side to win the 2015 Mobbs Memorial Match 47-24.

The Blues team featured a lot of unfamiliar faces with players from Saracens, Wasps, Cambridge, Hertford, Bishop Stortford and Loughborough University making their mark on the pitch alongside Bedford first team and Blues Academy members.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce that the exciting opportunity to be part of the Club’s future by designing the new mascot is now open to supporters of all ages with a revised deadline of Friday 24th April.

The winning design will provide the basis for the mascot, which will be launched at the first home game of next season and will be present at all future games at Goldington Road as well as selected School Games Competitions.

The competition is simple – all you have to do is come up with an idea for what the new Blues mascot should be called and look like!

Bedford Blues have named their 25 man squad which will face the British Army in the Mobbs Memorial game which is being played at Goldington Road on Wednesday 1st April with kick off at 7.45pm

First played in 1921, the Mobbs Memorial game honours Lieutenant Colonel Edgar Mobbs DSO, a true England rugby legend and a genuine hero of World War I. Formerly competed between the East Midlands and the Barbarians, the game now pits the British Army against Bedford Blues and Northampton Saints on alternate years and this year the match falls on Blues’ turf.

The annual Mobbs Memorial Match returns to Goldington Road this Wednesday 1st April as Bedford Blues prepare to go to battle against The Army (Kick Off 7:45pm).

Bedford Blues gave one of their best performances all season at Ashton Gate, but it wasn’t to be as they went down 38-14 to the league leaders Bristol, writes Ryan Lewis.

The Blues travelled west off the back of four straight defeats in the Greene King IPA Championship, but played with confidence and ambition, threatening a side full of international experience. 

The result could have been better for the visitors but for a referee who harshly sent four Bedford players to the bin, three of which coming just before the half-time whistle.
