The opening home match of the new Greene King IPA Championship season is only 10 days away as Bedford Blues welcome London Scottish to Goldington Road in our family fun day on Saturday 9th September (Kick Off 3pm). Save £4 and book tickets online here.

Following an impressive pre-season campaign Mike Rayer’s men are champing at the bit for league action in what promises to be an exciting campaign with a first look at some of the new faces in competitive rugby against a Scottish outfit featuring four former Blues players.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce that Northampton Saints second rower Jordan Onojaife, has joined the club once again for the coming season.

Standing at 196cm and weighing in at 118kg, Onojaife, 22,  initially joined Bedford on loan for the second half of last season's Championship campaign and made a lasting impression with players, coaches and fans alike.

Bedford completed their pre-season fixtures with a hard fought victory over a dogged Blackheath side who certainly weren't going to let the Blues have everything their own any.

Bedford took a two try lead early on, but the hosts fired back with three good scores to lead at the break. But Blackheath could do little to prevent the Blues second half juggernaut which crossed the line four times without reply.

Good luck this weekend to the Blues Academy Development Squad players who are in action for the Blues and for their partner clubs.

Second row Ben Kelland and winger Ryan Hutler both start for the Blues in the final pre-season warm-up game away at Blackheath.

Full back Joe Green and flanker Joe Britton both start for Cambridge away vs Bishop's Stortford, whilst centre Matt Riddington starts at 12 for Bishop's Stortford against them.

Meanwhile, 12,000 miles away, Dan Lewis is starting at 10 for North Otago away to Horowhenua-Kapiti in first round of Heartlands Mitre Championship.

Bedford Blues have named their squad to take on Blackheath in their final pre-season friendly ahead of the 2017/18 Championship campaign.

Following a bruising encounter against European Champions Saracens last weekend, Bedford make wholesale changes to the starting line-up as they look to finish their preparations for the new season with a flurry.

With a few niggling injuries, Bedford welcome Tongan number eight Sione Vailanu into the squad for this weekend's game. The big back rower represented Tonga at Under 20s, but has recently been pulling on a Japanese jersey as part of their sevens set up.
