Seven of Bedford Blues new signings will start the pre-season clash against Pontypridd on Saturday afternoon.

The game, which kicks off at 2.30pm at Cilfynydd RFC, will be the first competitive action of the season for Mike Rayer’s squad and follows a training camp in Cardiff.

As well as the seven debutants in the starting line-up, there will also be five new faces on the replacements bench as the Blues coaches make full use of the squad in preparation for the campaign ahead. Mike Howard will captain the team with newly appointed skipper Michael Le Bourgeois among the replacements.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce that Michael Le Bourgeois has been chosen as captain for the forthcoming Green King IPA Championship season.

Booj, as he is more commonly known, joined the Blues in 2013 having come through the ranks at Jersey, plying most of his rugby at outside-half or full-back. The 26-year-old has continued his development at the Blues and has become one of the most consistent performing centres in the league.

The Followers have been putting in a superb shift this summer helping prepare the ground for the new season, and now it's time for the big final push!

This Saturday and throughout the rest of August, Phil Novis and Baz Townsend will lead the tidy up at Goldington Road to help maintain the facilities for the coming campaign - and they need your help!

The Club have invested significant sums this year on a facilities project at the home of Bedford Blues, but need the support of the followers to complement the work with an array of smaller jobs including painting, weeding and general tidying, as well as some larger jobs.

Bedford Blues are thrilled to announce that their new Community Rugby Department will be headed up by former player and current coach Ben Gulliver.
 
Gulliver has an impressive playing CV having competed at the highest level with both Worcester Warriors and Leicester Tigers. The lock started his career with the Saracens Academy before playing for Coventry, Plymouth Albion, Cornish Pirates, Bedford Blues and, most recently, Ampthill.
 

Bedford Blues are pleased to announce the launch of a new Print @ Home Ticketing System ahead of the new season with tickets for the pre-season matches against Saracens and Pontypridd available now.

The new partnership with Eclipse Ticketing will enable fans to purchase tickets online and print off at home before being scanned through the turnstiles at Goldington Road on match day.

The Club have further discounted online ticket sales with a huge £4.00 saving online over match day prices for the Saracens match and all Championship games this season.
