The Blues aim to kick start a busy October this Saturday against newly promoted Richmond at Goldington Road following last weekend’s narrow defeat to Doncaster Knights (KO 3pm).

Whilst some have tipped Richmond for relegation, Mike Rayer’s men will certainly not be underestimating the side from the capital who ran Rotherham very close last time out. The Blues are in a similar position to Richmond having not registered a win so far this season so both sides will be focused on changing that this Saturday.

The deadline for 2017 Six Nations ticket applications for Twickenham to watch England closes today for all 2016-17 Bedford Blues Season Ticket holders. 

Application emails with details were sent out a few weeks back with your application form, but will be accpeted if dropped to the Club tomorrow, Tuesday 27th September.

If for any reason you didn't receive your application form via email, firstly please check your junk folder and if still not received, please get in contact with Debra Rayer or Gareth Alred at the club on 0871 871 1886 or email

It was a case of close but no cigar for Bedford Blues on Saturday afternoon as they went down 30-22 to Doncaster Knights at Castle Park.

It was a back and forth game throughout with the lead changing hands four times, but ultimately it was the hosts who took the spoils late on as Bedford finished the game with 14 men.

Tries from Jake Sharp, Jason Hill, Tom Farrell and Jacob Field earned the Blues a bonus point, but two tries for the Knights in the last ten minutes after Ben Adams was sin binned, secured the win for the hosts.

Bedford Blues head north this weekend as they travel to Castle Park to take on Doncaster Knights in the Greene King IPA Championship.
A hugely attritional game against London Irish last weekend saw the Blues hitting form, but ultimately they fell just short against the former Premiership side as they went down 23-30.

It will be a busy October at Goldington Road with Bedford Blues hosting three home games back to back including newly promoted Richmond next up, before Friday night lights v Rotherham Titans and the annual Ladies Day fixture on Saturday 15th against Newport Gwent Dragons.

Last season’s National One title winners, Richmond, arrive in Bedford on Saturday 1st October in a match Mike Rayer’s men will certainly be targeting on home soil having performed impressively versus London Irish last time out.
