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.

Bedford Blues will be making the trip to Sixways on Friday evening to face Worcester Warriors in Round Six of the Greene King IPA Championship and no doubt memories of their last visit will be firmly in everyone's mind.
 
The Blues were minutes away from causing a major upset in the 2011 Championship semi-final when they led the Warriors – who had stormed their way through the league that season -16-22 but a late Kai Horsmann try was to break Bedford hearts when it was converted by Joe Carlisle.
 

Bedford Blues are pleased to confirm the signing of Academy scrum half Kieran Duffin until the end of the season.
 
Duffin, 19, joined the Blues Academy from Wasps at the end of the 2012/13 season and firmly established himself in the Academy squad where he captained the team on several occasions during the campaign. Kieran's hard work paid off as he caught the eye of Bedford Director of Rugby, Mike Rayer, over the summer months when he trained with the senior squad.
 

Bedford supporters have the chance to watch the Blues Academy at home on Saturday, when they welcome Loughborough University U21 XV to Goldington Road.  The game is at Goldington Road, with a 2.30 pm Kick Off.  The bar is open, admission is free, and England vs the All Blacks is on TV.

The Academy face the Loughborough students on the back of an impressive three wins in eight days;  against Oxford University U21 XV, Wasps Academy and the RAF U 23 XV.

Bedford again use their squad rotation system and make 8 changes to the starting lineup that beat the RAF U23 XV.

With just three days to go until Bedford Blues’ annual firework extravaganza this Friday 7th November, tickets are now available to purchase from the Club Shop at Goldington Road for the rest of this week between 10am-4pm.

Gates and bars open on Friday for the Fireworks Display and Funfair at 6pm, leaving plenty of time to take a wander around the ground and soak up the family atmosphere at this traditional town event before the first display starts at 7pm. The children’s display is the perfect winter warmer for kids of all ages, ahead of the main event.
