Bedford Blues have announced thier team for the crucial British & Irish Cup fixture with Yorkshire Carnegie that kicks off at 3pm on Saturday afternoon.

The teams have faced off twice already this season with the visitors holding a two nil victory with wins in the cup and league up in Yorkshire, but Saturday is the first game of the New Year at Goldington Road and the Blues will be looking to kick off 2017 in fine fashion in front of their own fans.

Bedford Blues are pleased to launch their January Shop Sale both online now and in the Club Store this Saturday with 20% off everything!

If you missed something off your Christmas list, fancy treating yourself or needing a present for a Blues’ supporter’s upcoming birthday, now is the time to take advantage and secure Blues merchandise at its lowest price ever.

The January offer which opens today, but could close anytime from Monday onwards, gives fans a huge 20% off every single item, including leisurewear ranges, all winter hats, replica jerseys, kids wear, accessories and even the new Bedford Bear Teddy.

The first Blues match of 2017 pits Bedford against Yorkshire Carnegie in the British & Irish Cup this Saturday with Mike Rayer’s men needing a big win to keep knockout stage hopes alive (KO 3pm).

The second half of the season has started well with a superb and vital last second win versus Jersey on Boxing Day and a narrow loss, but good performance against leaders London Irish on New Year’s Eve.

Bedford will need to continue that good form to overcome the league’s second placed team, who are also in the running to make the Quarter Finals with only the winner keeping the dream alive after.

Bedford Blues are disappointed to announce that centre Tom Farrell has left the club to join Pro 12 side Connacht with immediate effect.

Farrell, 22, has made 12 appearances for the Goldington Road club since joining in the summer from London Irish with his last being against his former club.

Well what a 2016 it has been! It kicked off with a 31-19 home win against London Scottish in the Championship, included a huge 64-20 victory over London Welsh, we saw 100 points being scored in an enthralling game with Cornish Pirates and had plenty of thrills and spills along the way. Simon Hutchinson takes a look back at his three highlights from the year just gone.
