Bedford Blues will be looking to continue their good form as they head across the English Channel on Saturday to face Jersey at St Peter’s.

The Blues have won three out of five in the Greene King IPA Championship with the latest victory being against Nottingham at Goldington Road last weekend which saw an outstanding defence display going a long way to securing the points.

Games between Jersey and Bedford are always hard fought affairs but St Peter’s is a ground that the players enjoy playing on and the fans love visiting.

The Blues Academy welcome Loughborough University U21 XV to Goldington Road on Saturday – KO 2.00 pm.

Making their debuts for the Blues Academy in the starting lineup are ex-Millfield School prop, Henry Peck, Portugal U18 international centre Jose Fernandes and ex-St.Joseph’s College Ipswich wing, Ross Taylor.  Hoping to make their debuts off the bench are ex-Junior Blue 2nd row, Kyron Houston, Wotton School flanker, Tim Herbert, and ex-Llandovery College fly half, Ben Phillips.  The side will be captained by prop Charley Robinson.

Bedford Blues’ annual Fireworks Display and Funfair will be back on Friday 6th November 2015 at Goldington Road, and is set to be bigger and better than ever!

Gates open on the evening at 6pm for an action packed, fun filled evening of loud and colourful entertainment, once again sponsored by Progress Skoda. Book early to avoid disappointment following the success of last year.

Bedford Blues winger George Perkins has been nominated as one of the entries for the Championship Player of the Month competition.

The dual registered Saracens back has been in sparkling form since moving to Goldington Road and has run in three tries - one against Bristol and two against London Welsh.

To recognise the standout individuals from across the competition, a panel of key regional and national media with vast knowledge of the Championship will submit their Greene King IPA Player of the Month nominees to public vote. A shortlist of nominees will be revealed towards the end of every month, to include an average of three rounds.

Two of the town’s great institutions are coming together once again to host a spectacular, bigger and better, three day Rugby and Beer Festival weekender at Goldington Road on Friday 16th, Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th October following the inaugural success of the event last season.

While there is nothing better than watching Bedford Blues playing rugby, the experience can always be improved and in under two weeks Blues fans will be able to enjoy top-class rugby alongside some of the finest beers available from our good friends at Charles Wells Brewery.
