Sunday proved to be another frustrating afternoon for the Bedford Blues players and coaches as a late Matt Jarvis penalty secured the win for Nottingham at Meadow Lane.

Bedford got off to the best possible start when Paul Tupai bundled over from close range but when Joe Munro charged down Brendan Burke's attempted clearance kick to score a couple of minutes later to score, it was always going to be one of those afternoon's.

James Pritchard converted two penalties and Jarvis replied with one of his own to make it 10-11 before Nick Fenton-Wells rounded off a good forwards try with the skipper adding the extras at the interval.

Bedford Blues limped to their fifth defeat of the season at Nottingham this afternoon as late penalty earned the Green & Whites a last-gasp 26-24 victory.

Poor decision-making and infringements once again cost the Blues as they let victory slip through their fingers at Meadow Lane.

With neither side firing on all cylinders, neither eighth placed Bedford or 11th placed Nottingham achieved any sustained periods of ascendancy during the 80 minutes.

For the Blues it was an afternoon of prolonged malfunction as both of the hosts’ tries came from Blues mistakes, while all of Matt Jarvis’ penalties seemed to stem from players needlessly infringing.

The Blues Academy won the first game of the "double header" weekend against Nottingham.  Although slow to get into gear the Blues scored seven tries to produce a convincing performance to win by 43pts - 12, and set the scene for the Blues Championship game away at Nottingham on Sunday.

Despite a miserable weather forecast, nothing could dampen the spirits as young and old came together to enjoy a true spectacular - and all for just £5. It was without a doubt, one of the finest displays that the club has ever seen.
