Bedford Blues will be looking to start 2015 in the best possible fashion when they make the trip to Moseley on Saturday afternoon.
 
While 2014 was certainly a mixed year for the Blues, they will be looking to build on recent performances when they visit Billesley Common for a crunch encounter with Mose.
 
Although Bedford slipped to a 24-28 defeat against league leaders Bristol on Boxing Day, there were clear signs that the Blues had rediscovered some of the form that had made them so dangerous in previous seasons.
 

Following an extremely well fought and close game against title favourites Bristol at Goldington Road on Boxing Day, Bedford Blues fly-half Jake Sharp was left disappointed post-match, but excited about the turn of the year and continuing a rich vein of form against both Moseley and Doncaster Knights at the start of 2015.

The Blues just missed out on victory last Friday despite a fantastic performance which saw the boys run in four tries to walk away with both a try and losing bonus point, but the overriding emotion was one of frustration having led 17-7 at half-time.

It was a case of close but no cigar as Bedford Blues gave league leaders Bristol a real run for their money in a classic encounter at Goldington Road on Boxing Day.

If you were one of the 4401 fans inside the ground (and of the Blues persuasion of course) then here is how the game would have gone: Oh no... (0-7). Hang on a second (5-7 try James Pritchard). Yes! (10-7 try Harry Wells). You beauty (17-7 try Adamson, conversion Pritchard). Half time. Blast (17-14). No no no (17-21). Oh please no (17-28). Yesssss (24-28 try Tapley, con Pritchard). COME ON YOU BLUES!!! 

Bedford Blues will be hoping to continue the Christmas celebrations when they welcome table-topping Bristol to Goldington Road on Boxing Day for a huge festive clash.
 
A bumper crowd is expected at the game with the Blues looking to continue their recent good form but they will face their sternest test of the season against Andy Robinson's men who are yet to taste defeat.
 
It was four years ago that the two sides met on the same date and on that encounter Bedford Blues fans helped to clear four inches of snow from the pitch before Mike Rayer's men went on to win the game 39-22.
 

Day 24 of the Blues Advent Calendar and Christmas Eve wishes you season greetings and a very Merry Christmas from all at Bedford Blues.

The Club would like to thank supporters for their loyal backing season in, season out and look forward to welcoming a healthy crowd to Goldington Road on Boxing Day.

Online ticket sales for Boxing Day have now closed, but there will be plenty of tickets available at the gate on match-day and we hope to see the town out in force to cheer on Mike Rayer’s Blues.
