Bedford didn’t go out with the bang that they wanted to at Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon as Yorkshire Carnegie spoiled the party with a 27-43 victory.

The visitors knew that a win would seal second place in the Championship table and they duly secured that, but Bedford more than put on a show as they bid farewell to the 2016/17 season in front of their faithful supporters with Dean Adamson, Pat Tapley, Jacob Fields and Jake Sharp all crossing the whitewash to secure a bonus point.

Bedford Blues have announced their 2017/18 Season Ticket packages with a fifth successive price freeze for what promises to be an exciting season on the back of recent signings.

Membership offers supporters the chance to enjoy an enthralling Blues’ campaign at Goldington Road with frozen prices, large savings on match day prices and a host of additional benefits when purchased before the end of June.

There are more ways to complete your Season Ticket purchase with existing holders paying no booking fee if you email season@bedfordrugby.co.uk for an online payment link.

Bedford Blues will be running out in front of their home supporters for the last time this season looking to finish with a flurry as they welcome Yorkshire Carnegie to Goldington Road. The two teams have already met three times this season with Bryan Redpath's men securing wins on each occasion but Bedford will be keen to stop them making it a clean sweep for the season.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce that the rumours are true - England international scrum half Lee Dickson is joining the club as a player/coach for the 2017/18 Championship season.
 
Dickson, 32, makes the move to Goldington Road having played 250 games for Northampton Saints since joining from Newcastle Falcons in 2008. Only Stephen Myler and Dylan Hartley have made more first team appearances for the Saints out of the current squad.
 

While new signings have dominated Bedford Blues news in recent weeks, there will be players leaving Goldington Road this summer with one of the most notable being long-serving lock Mike Howard.

Howard, 31, has been a mainstay of the second row since joining from North Walsham after a successful trial in 2008 and he has played a huge role in the Blues' successes ever since.

With well over 200 Blues appearances to his name, Howard has been a true stalwart of the club and as such he will be honoured with a testimonial game at Goldington Road on Saturday 6th May.
