Congratulations to five Blues Academy players who have been named in the U18 Divisional squads.

Prop Charley Robinson (Bromsgrove School and North Midlands U18s), hooker Garth Spencer (Moulton College and East Midlands U18s) and centre Aaron Martin (Bilton School, Rugby and Warwickshire U18s) have been selected for the Midlands Division U18 squad.  They will join hooker Dan Hostleter (Stowe School and Buckinghamshire U18s) who has been selected for the SE Division U18 squad, and flanker Nick Pritchard (George Abbott School, Guildford and Surrey U18s) who has been selected for the London & SE Division U18 squad. 

The Blues Academy kick off the second half of their season when they travel to play Ealing Trailfinders on Saturday.  The game will be played on Ealing’s new 3G synthetic pitch as a curtain raiser to Ealing 1st XV’s league game with Wharfedale.  Ealing, who were relegated from the Championship at the end of last season, are leading the National One League table and pushing for promotion back to the Championship next season.

The Club are pleased to bring supporters another reason to enjoy a glass of fizz and good food as our in-house caterer Nos, in partnership with the Followers, will be holding a Champagne and Stew Evening on Friday 16th January in aid of The Sick Children’s Trust.

A fun filled night in the Scrum Bar is guaranteed with champagne and nibbles on arrival before Nos’s homemade stew, along with live coverage of the European Champions Cup on the big screen, not forgetting the chance to get your hands on some prizes through the Followers raffle.

Following a fantastic start to 2015 with a superb triumph over Moseley at Billesley Common, Bedford Blues are looking to continue their New Year success as they prepare for another clash with Doncaster Knights at Goldington Road on Saturday 10th January (KO 3pm).

Bedford ran in three tries against their Midlands’ opponents to secure a vital 15-23 away win, making it 17 tries in the last four outings for Mike Rayer’s men, and this Saturday the Blues are seeking the same fate and to continue that fine form when they face the Knights for a second time in front of a home crowd this season.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce that fly half Steffan Jones will be returning to Goldington Road following his involvement with Wales in the HSBC Sevens World Series, and he has now made his loan move a permanent one.
 
Jones, 24, had joined the Blues in the summer on a year long loan move from Newport Gwent Dragons but was recalled by the region in early November before heading off with the National Sevens Team.
