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!

New for the 2014/15 season, the Greene King IPA Championship has launched the inaugural ‘Player of the Month’ competition.

To recognise the standout individuals from across the competition, a panel of key regional and national media with vast knowledge of the Championship will submit their player of the month to public vote. A shortlist of six nominees will be revealed towards the end of every month, to include an average of three rounds*.

It is often said that good things come to those who wait and boy have the Bedford Blues players and coaches had to be patient, but hard work, grit and determination came to fruition on Saturday afternoon when Mike Rayer's men ran in four tries to beat Plymouth Albion 22-31 at Brickfields.

“Today we had a result without as good a performance as we would have liked, but we will certainly take that,” said Blues Backs Coach Paul Larkin. “We haven’t turned the corner, we are just on the way round it, and we have got a lot of hard work ahead of us.

In a game of three 30 minute periods Bedford dominated the first two periods, before losing the third, but ended as winners by 52pts – 34 against St. Joseph’s College Ipswich.  With both sides taking the opportunity to use about 30 players the game gave both sets of coaches the opportunity to try some different players and combinations.
