Bedford Blues got their pre-season friendly campaign off to the best possible start with a six try victory over near-neighbours Old Albanians.

1167 fans came to Goldington Road on Friday night to see the home side win 40-5 with Steve Ellis and Joe Vandermolen scoring two tries apiece while James Currie and Paul Tupai also dotting down. Sam Lunnon scored a consolation try for the visitors who put in a fine shift throughout the 80 minutes.

With BT it used to be a case of “It’s Good To Talk”, but nowadays it is even better to watch! BT Sport has arrived at Goldington Road, in addition to Sky Sports, and Bedford Blues fans will be able to take full advantage in all of the bars around the ground.  

Starting on Saturday 6th September with two live Aviva Premiership matches in the scrum bar on BT Sport and one live academy match vs Cambridge RUFC Under 21s on the Goldington Road pitch!

After a tough pre-season training programme over the last seven weeks the Blues Academy take to the field for the first time this season on Saturday at Goldington Road (Kick Off 2.00 pm), when they welcome the Leinster Under 18 squad.  Leinster, who last played the Blues Academy in 2009, when they beat the Blues 18 – 7, are warming up for the Irish Inter-Provincial Championship.  Both Bedford and Leinster field a large squad to give both sets of coaches a chance to see new players in action.
