This January the Blues’ Followers Association brings a cerebral challenge to Goldington Road with the return of Jackie Markham's BRFA General Knowledge Quiz.

The date for your diary is Friday 27th January, the night prior to Blues home match v Doncaster Knights, with Scrum Hall doors opening at 7:00pm for a 7:30pm Quiz start, so be there early to secure your table and get the team beers in ahead of this year’s examination.

Teams can be up to six people, but if you don't have a team come along and we'll join you with some like-minded supporters.

Bedford Blues 2016 didn't end in quite the fashion that they would have liked as they went down 36-21 to London Irish, but there can be no doubting that the signs are positive following an impressive display against the former Premiership side.

While the hosts relied on their pack to secure their five tries over the course of the game, the Blues were more than happy to spread the ball around the whole squad with winger George Perkins, scrum half Tom Whiteley and replacement prop Camilo Parilli-Ocampo all crossing the whitewash.

While 2016 has been a mixed year for the Blues, they will be hoping to finish with a flurry as they head to Reading to take on London Irish on New Year's Eve.

When the two teams met back in September, the Blues gave a great account of themselves but fell just short as they went down 23-30 to the former Premiership side.

Confidence in the Bedford camp was given an extra boost following their last gasp 39-37 victory against Jersey Reds on Boxing Day. The Blues scored two late tries with a final conversion sealing a win that had looked out of reach with two minutes left on the clock.

Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow! What an afternoon of Rugby at Goldington Road as Bedford Blues fought until the bitter end to win an enthralling competition against Jersey Reds 39-37.
 
A whopping 4621 turned up for this Boxing Day encounter to see a brace of tries from Dean Adamson along with one each for Tom Farrell, Mike Le Bourgeois, Matt Gallagher and George Perkins. Myles Dorrian kicked seven points while a final conversion from Jake Sharp won the game for the Blues.
 

Goldington Road is sure to be full of festive cheer as Bedford Blues prepare to welcome Jersey Reds on Boxing Day for a Greene IPA Championship clash.

The two sides met back in September with the Reds getting the win in a closely fought contest at St Peter but the Blues will be looking for a good response in the reversal as they hope to finish 2016 on a high.
