Bedford return to Goldington Road to face Jersey this weekend following two trips on the road which was the Blues pick up their first victory of the season against Plymouth.

The Blues had been left frustrated after taking two bonus points off London Scottish a fortnight ago, but they took that frustration and turned it into a bonus point victory against Albion thanks to a brace of tries from Dean Adamson and one apiece for Paul Tupai and Pat Tapley.

Now the Blues are looking to continue that good fortune as they welcome Jersey to Goldington Road for the encounter on Saturday afternoon.

After last weekend’s victorious outing away at Plymouth, Bedford Blues Forwards Coach Martin Hynes is confident back on home turf this Saturday and is looking forward to another tight encounter against Jersey at Goldington Road (Kick Off 3pm).

The Blues won their first game of the season last Saturday, scoring four tries to secure an elusive try bonus point to elevate them up the and Championship table. Ahead of this weekend’s clash with the Islanders, the former Northampton Saints front rower maintains that improvement is the key objective and that he is confident the boys are heading in the right direction.

Following the announcement from Bedford Blues Chairman, Geoff Irvine, that he will be standing down from his position at the end of the 2015/16 season, an outside group has been formed to examine the relationship between Bedford Blues and the local community.

Following the first phase of their work and a survey to gather the importance of rugby in Bedford, Geoff Irvine believes that the best way that the people of Bedford can show their support for the Club is to turn up on Saturday to cheer on Bedford Blues as they face Jersey in the Greene King IPA Championship (gates open at midday with kick off at 3pm).

Bedford Blues are pleased to announce changes to their weekly Club Night event in attempt to improve attendance. The revamped evenings will now be held on Friday nights at 19:00 in the Eagle Bar to incorporate BT Sport’s live coverage of Aviva Premiership matches with all draught beers available at Happy Hour prices.

Following review of many areas, the Club has changed the Club Night experience to further improve their offering for supporters and in answer to recent feedback and in consideration with regular attendees the Blues hope Friday evenings will prove a great success watching first class rugby with cheaper beer prices.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce a brand new ‘£3 Happy Hours’ initiative on draught beers upstairs in the Eagle Bar to be trialled at the next home game against Jersey on Saturday 4th October.

To ensure Blues supporters get the most from their match day experience and get through the gates that little bit earlier; Wells Eagle IPA, McEwan’s Lager, Young’s London Stout, Wells Eagle Smooth and Somersby Cider will all be available at just £3 a pint between the hours of 12 noon and 14:30 this Saturday upstairs in the Eagle Bar. There is a saving of nearly a £1 on most pump beers, so don’t miss out!
