Bedford Blues have been instructed by the RFU in accordance with the regulations to move the Kick Off time to 5pm for their upcoming Greene King Championship match vs Rotherham Titans on Saturday 29th March.
Bedford Chairman Geoff Irvine Said “We’re not happy about it and did everything in our power to offer compromises to resolve the issue, but at the end of the day they’re the regulations and we’ve been forced to abide by them.
A couple of years ago a downpour of rain would have almost certainly put the mockers on any chance of the Blues picking up a victory but on Saturday afternoon they demonstrated exactly how to use the weather to their advantage as they came from behind to beat Nottingham 14-9.
Bedford’s kit man – and President – will have quite a job on his hands to get the jerseys sparkling clean in time for next Sunday’s trip to Leeds but I’m sure he won’t mind after the entire squad put in a hell of a shift to earn a very hard fought win.
Bedford Blues have bolstered their playing squad with the signing of former Academy player Tony Fenner from Viadana.
The 24 year old – who can play at fullback, fly half or centre - came through the ranks at Goldington Road winning Two National Colts Cup medals along the way. He played for the Blues against the Barbarians in the Mobbs Memorial match in 2009 before turning out for Rosslyn Park and helping them secure promotion to National One.
