There’s only one week to go until Bedford Blues’ annual firework extravaganza next Friday 6th November, tickets are selling quickly and are available online through the website or from the Club Shop at Goldington Road between 10am-4pm Monday to Friday.

Gates and bars open next Friday for the Fireworks Display and Funfair at 6pm, leaving plenty of time to take a wander around the ground and soak up the family atmosphere at this traditional town event including a variety of rides and activities in the Funfair village setup up at the back end of Goldington Road.

Bedford Blues have just been informed that their British & Irish Cup match against the Scarlets Select side that was supposed to kick-off at 2.30pm on Saturday 14th November will now take place the following day - Sunday 15th November - with a 3pm kick-off.

The match has been moved so that Welsh broadcaster S4C can show the game live on Sunday afternoon.

We understand that this may cause some inconvenience for our travelling supporters who have already planned their trip but we have only just been informed of the decision to change the fixture.

The Blues Academy U19 XV travel to Maidenhead Rugby Club on Friday night to take on Wasps Academy U18 XV (Kick Off 7.45 pm).

Bedford make six changes to their starting lineup (one positional) with hooker George Harris, prop Henry Peck, centre Harry Hutchins, and full back Max Titchener returning with Liam Shields moving to centre.  No. 8 Harry Peterkin (Oaklands College) makes his debut. 

Hoping to make their debuts off the bench are St Columba's College hooker Tom Kelly and Wymondham winger Charlie Blower. The side will be captained by prop Charley Robinson.
 

Rugby is an 80 minute game and Bedford needed every one of them as they overcame a tenacious Ealing Trailfinders side who find themselves rooted at the foot of the Championship table.

Steffan Jones converted a penalty with the final kick of the game to seal a 21-23 win and earn Bedford a valuable four points.

The home side started in fine fashion and were ahead in the seventh minute when scrum half Alex Davies converted a penalty after his pack put in a good scrum which caused the Bedford front row to buckle.

Bedford Blues take to the road again this weekend as they head to west London to face Ealing Trailfinders in Round 8 of the Greene King IPA Championship.

Bedford will be in high spirits having overcome Rotherham 46-28 under the Friday Night Lights at Goldington Road, but the Blues know that Ealing will be no pushovers on their home (astro)turf.
