Bedford Blues take to the road again this weekend as they head to west London to face Ealing Trailfinders in Round 8 of the Greene King IPA Championship.

Bedford will be in high spirits having overcome Rotherham 46-28 under the Friday Night Lights at Goldington Road, but the Blues know that Ealing will be no pushovers on their home (astro)turf.

Bedford Blues headed to the Forest of Marston today to become official treehuggers for a brand new social media fundraising campaign. 

Director of Rugby Mike Rayer, winger Dean Adamson and back rower Josh Buggea visited the Forest Centre in Marston Moretaine to get behind the Trust’s #treehugger campaign which encourages people to have fun outdoors and raise funds for the Forest of Marston Vale Trust.

The new campaign urges people to take a selfie of themselves hugging a tree, post it on their preferred social media using the hashtag #treehugger, make a £3 text donation to the trust, and then nominate three friends to do the same. 

Ealing Academy have had to cancel Saturday's game between Bedford Academy and Ealing Academy due to player availability.  

The Scrum Bar will be open for the World Cup semi-final between South Africa and New Zealand which kicks off at 4 pm.


ATTENTION: All remaining Beer Festival ale just £2.00 a pint tomorrow evening as the Blues Marquee opens to screen a recording of Friday's fantastic victory over Rotherham Titans.

Doors open at 7pm for a 7:30pm showing on the big screen with various guest ales available at just £2 and a selection of draught and bottled drinks on the main bar. 

Enjoy the thrills of Friday night all over again as well as a quick summary by current Blues players to hear how the win was achieved. Bring all your friends and family down and take advantage of a cheeky midweek night out in the traditional Club Night style!

There is always a buzz about Goldington Road when it’s Friday Night Lights and Bedford Blues repaid the 2574 faithful fans who turned out with an evening of running rugby and fine tries as they defeated Rotherham Titans 46-28.

Two for Jordan Burns, two for Henry Staff, a penalty try and one Piers O’Conor along with 16 points from Jake Sharps boot did the damage although the visitors – who had trailed 41-0, did rally to secure a try bonus point.
