The clock is ticking down as Bedford Blues prepare to launch their pre-season campaign with a challenging tie against near-neighbours Old Albanians on Friday night. Tickets are just £5.00 for adults and FREE for Under 18s, and with so many new faces set to play it is a must-see fixture.

Following a successful training camp in Belfast at the weekend, Bedford welcome the National One side to Goldington Road for their first friendly of pre-season as Director of Rugby Mike Rayer looks to blood the new signings.

Blues Club Doctor, Dr. David Niblett,and Academy physio, Kelly Loftus, put the Blues Academy Coaches through a Medical Training refresher course at Goldington Road, before Academy training this week.

The session covered training on use of the spinal board, which is used to immobilise a player with any suspected neck or spine injury.  This is vital to protect the player from any damage caused by movement until a full assessment can be carried out. 

Tickets for Bedford Blues pre-season clash with Premiership giants Saracens went on sale this morning with discounted prices for those buying in advance, from as little as £8.00 for adults.

The Blues kick off their preparations for the forthcoming Greene King IPA Championship season with a home game against Old Albanians next Friday (August 15) before heading to West London to face Ealing Trailfinders on Saturday 23rd August.

The pre-season reaches its climax on Friday 29th August when European heavyweights Saracens return to Goldington Road for the annual fixture.

Bedford Blues have started the second phase of their pre-season by heading off to Belfast for a four day training camp.

It was a 6am start for the Blues players and coaches today (Thursday) as they set off for Heathrow Airport before jetting off to Northern Ireland where they will be put through their paces across the long weekend.

After arriving at George Best Airport, the squad had no time for sightseeing as they made their way to Belfast Harlequins RFC to crack on with the first training session of the trip. After a quick bite to eat, it was onto the training pitch as the coaching staff put the players through the training regime.
