The Blues Academy return to action with the start of pre-season training on Monday July 6th. Sixteen of last year’s squad are returning and will join new players on trial over July and August. If you think you have got what it takes to join the Blues Academy look here.

Bedford Blues were given one of their toughest training sessions of pre-season when they put through their paces with a Mixed Martial Arts workout.

The lads headed along to the Rising Crane Centre in Melbourne Street where they met up with David Rogers who is the Chief Instructor of Rising Crane which is Bedford’s longest running fully equipped, full time Martial arts academy.

Bedford Blues have confirmed that all but two of their home fixtures for the 2015/16 Greene King IPA Championship will take place on Saturdays with a 3pm kick-off.
The only league games which fall outside of the time slot will be against Rotherham Titans, which will kick off at 7.45pm on Friday 16th October, and a holiday fixture versus London Scottish on New Year’s Day at 3pm.

Bedford Blues Rugby Club was this week sadly informed that former player and captain George Jenkins has passed away. George, who was 99 years and 6 months at the time of his death, was actually the Club's oldest former player and oldest captain.

Between 1946-53 George made 128 appearances in the back row, scoring 37 tries and was captain of the 1950-51 squad.

Hailing from Abercarn in Wales, flanker George never forgot his time at Bedford and the Club would like to extend our sincere sympathy to his family and friends. Once a Blue, always a Blue.

Bedford Blues have added 21 year old Harlequins scrum half Jordan Burns to their squad for the 2015/16 Greene King IPA Championship season.

Burns, who started life playing on the wing before switching to nine, has signed a permanent deal with the Goldington Road club and has joined up with his new teammates for pre-season training.
