It will be 'Friday Night Lights' for Bedford Blues players and fans tomorrow evening when they welcome Yorkshire Carnegie to Goldington Road.
 
The Blues ran in two superb tries against Worcester Warriors last Friday but it wasn't enough to stop the former Premiership side racking up a 42-12 victory at Sixways. Despite the defeat, there was a huge improvement on the field, something that pleased Blues Director of Rugby Mike Rayer.
 

After the narrowest of wins against Loughborough University U21 XV last week, Bedford Academy take on another University side on Saturday; this time Cambridge University U21 XV.

Bedford again rotate their squad and make ten changes (four of them positional) to the starting lineup that beat Loughborough.

To make sure fans are kept up to date on all the latest activity at Goldington Road, Bedford Blues have been working hard to produce weekly video content on all previous and upcoming fixtures through our Youtube channel BedfordBluesvids.

Video footage includes exclusive interviews with coaches and the players, as well as match try highlights including commentary from each fixture and even behind-the-scenes access from training.

Bedford Blues return home this Friday 14th November ready to make Goldington Road a fortress as they take on Yorkshire Carnegie in their first home match in four weeks.

The Blues faced disappointment on Friday when they lost out to play-off final favourites Worcester Warriors, but are determined to bounce back from the defeat this weekend against the Headingley Carngie outfit, formally Leeds Carnegie, who are currently sitting one place higher than the Blues but joint on points.

The Blues Academy scraped a narrow win over Loughborough University U21 XV, in monsoon-like weather at Goldington Road on Saturday.  Down by 5pts – 3 at half time, the Blues scored early in the second half to win by 8pts – 5.

The game started, after a One Minute Silence in recognition of Remembrance Sunday, in very heavy rain, which persisted for much of the game. Handling for both sides was extremely difficult, as the ball, like the proverbial bar of soap, skidded around Goldington Road.
