It’s nearly here, the big bumper Boxing Day clash against Jersey Reds at Goldington Road as Bedford Blues seek to start the second half of the season with a decisive victory and climb the Championship table (KO 3pm).

Preparations are taking shape, logistics in place, on and off-field entertainment scheduled and lots of ground entry tickets are still available online at £4 discount with only a handful of Eagle Stand seats remaining.

Bedford Blues chances of reaching the quarter-finals of the British & Irish Cup suffered a huge blow on Saturday afternoon as they went down 40-23 to Ealing Trailfinders at Vallis Way.

When the teams met in the league encounter earlier this season, a single point separated them while last weekend’s reversal saw a 19 all draw. But an impressive first half from the hosts saw them set up a healthy lead which, despite a late fight back from Bedford, they never surrendered.

Bedford Blues make the journey to the Capital on Saturday afternoon to face Ealing Trailfinders in Round 4 of the British & Irish Cup at Vallis Way.

Following last weekend's intriguing 19-19 draw in very wet conditions at Goldington Road, both teams will be looking to break the deadlock as they push for a place in the quarter-finals of the Cup competition.

As Peters and Lee once sang, it really is a case of 'Welcome home' as Bedford Blues have once again secured the services of tight head prop Ben Cooper from London Welsh.

After it was confirmed that Dave Spelman is likely to miss the remainder of the season following a serious knee injury, the Blues moved quickly to fill the void left in the front three and have been able to re-sign Cooper who left Goldington Road in 2014.

This Wednesday the Blues Shop will be back on the road for the final Christmas Market in Bedford Town Centre. Pop by to purchase all things Blues; from replica shirts to leisurewear to our winter warmer collection, and even Boxing Day match tickets against Jersey.

The stall will open at 9am in the bustling market close to M&S on Wednesday 14th December and close at 4pm.
