Bedford Blues return home this Friday 14th November ready to make Goldington Road a fortress as they take on Yorkshire Carnegie in their first home match in four weeks.

The Blues faced disappointment on Friday when they lost out to play-off final favourites Worcester Warriors, but are determined to bounce back from the defeat this weekend against the Headingley Carngie outfit, formally Leeds Carnegie, who are currently sitting one place higher than the Blues but joint on points.

The Blues Academy scraped a narrow win over Loughborough University U21 XV, in monsoon-like weather at Goldington Road on Saturday.  Down by 5pts – 3 at half time, the Blues scored early in the second half to win by 8pts – 5.

The game started, after a One Minute Silence in recognition of Remembrance Sunday, in very heavy rain, which persisted for much of the game. Handling for both sides was extremely difficult, as the ball, like the proverbial bar of soap, skidded around Goldington Road. 

A hat-trick from Mat Gilbert helped Worcester Warriors to a 42-12 victory over Bedford Blues at Sixways on Friday night writes Ryan Lewis of the Bedford Times & Citizen.

Worcester, who have not lost since an opening day defeat to Bristol, took an early control of the game and never really looked in danger of losing to a Bedford side who were resilient in defeat.

The Blues scored two excellent tries through Joe Vandermolen and Dean Adamson but they weren’t enough for a Bedford side who, despite the scoreline, matched their opponents throughout, but were unable to stop a Worcester attacking juggernaut that was relentless in finding points when it hit the right gear.

For the fifth season running Bedford Blues will be offering free entry to Goldington Road to any serving member of the armed forces or the emergency services when Yorkshire Carnegie visit in the Greene King IPA Championship on Friday 14th November.

As the world commemorates the centenary of World War One and at a time when servicemen and women are still involved in conflicts around the globe, the Blues want to offer something to those who put their lives on the line for the freedom of others.

The club also want to say a big thank you to members of the police, fire and ambulance services who aid and assist the public every day in the UK.
