The Blues Academy play their final game before the Christmas break when they travel to play Shelford U21 XV tonight. Wednesday December 17th. 

Bedford again rotate their squad, making seven changes to the starting lineup that beat Saracens two weeks ago.  In the pack Owen Griffiths starts at hooker, Lewis Brunger at prop, Alex Burman at second row, and Zachary Scott-Gray (Richard Hale School and Herts U18s) makes his debut at No.8.  In the back line Dylan Leney starts at scrum half, Cameron Ives at centre and Max Titchener at full back.  Winger Richard Stewart (Tring and Herts U18s) and fly half Nat Abery (St, Joseph’s College, Ipswich) make their debuts on the bench.

Delivery for all online ticket orders for the Bristol match on Boxing Day will close this Thursday 18 December, but fear not all subsequent ticket orders after this date will be placed on the ticket collection window for match-day rather than running the risk of arrival later than Christmas Day.

All online shop orders from stock will also close for Christmas delivery on Wednesday 17 December at 12 noon, with last postage sent the morning of Thursday 18 December. However any online shop orders placed after this date will be available to collect from either the Christmas Market in Bedford town centre this Saturday or from the Club General Office.

Bedford Blues fans can have themselves a merry little Christmas following an absolute cracker of a game at Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon as the home side put on a superb performance to win 41-40.

A brace of tries from Paul Tupai along with one apiece for Dean Adamson, Pat Tapley and James Pritchard – who also converted all five as well as two conversions – ensured that the Blues won in a game that was tense throughout.

Stick around after the match on Saturday to join the Christmas celebrations as Bedford Blues host a variety of post-match entertainment in the Blues Marquee following the final whistle with live music and a Christmas Forum.

Musician Mark Calder will be getting the party started with his guitar and a few chosen tunes to keep everyone in the festive mood before we unleash forwards coach and part-time MC Martin Hynes on the crowd, you may even see a duet dependant on the mood.
