Bedford Blues return to Goldington Road this weekend looking to bounce back from last weekend's defeat to Yorkshire Carnegie as they host Cornish Pirates in the Greene King IPA Championship.

Games between the two are often high scoring and close affairs with the reverse this season being a perfect example. Bedford had looked as though they were heading towards a bonus point win thanks to tries from Pat Tapley, Tom Griffiths, Joel Conlon and Mike Le Bourgeois, but a dogged Pirates team didn't give in and snatched a 32-31 win with a converted try right at the death.

The Blues Academy U19s travel to take on the Nottingham Academy side on Sunday April 3rd, Kick Off 2.00pm.

The Blues make three changes to the starting line-up that played Ealing Trailfinders in their last game.  In the pack Cameron Lawes starts at second row and Jack Spurr (BMS School) at flanker.  In the back line Paddy McDuell, the ex-Bedford School fly half, who is home from University, starts at ten and Ben Phillips returns from injury to start at inside centre. 

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce the signing of exciting Loughborough Students hooker Jacob Fields as well as the re-signing of Sam James for the 2016/17 season.
 
The news comes hot off the heels of the announcement that Charlie Clare will be moving on from Goldington Road to join Premiership side, and near neighbours, Northampton Saints at Franklins Gardens in the Aviva Premiership.
 

Bedford Blues can confirm that all-time leading point scorer, James Pritchard, will be leaving the club at the end of the season to take up a player/coach role with National One side Coventry.

Pritchard, 36, or Skippy as he is known, celebrated his testimonial with the club last season and has been a key figure at Goldington Road for more than a decade.

The Blues return home this Saturday for the biggest match of the season so far against a Cornish Pirates side brimming with confidence - but with a play-off spot still within Bedford’s grasp the boys need the support of a strong 16th man (kick off 3pm).

In the reverse fixture, Pirates broke Bedford hearts with a last minute winning try and conversion at a boggy Mennaye Field to seal a 32-31 home victory leaving the Blues intent on levelling this season’s outings against Ian Davies’ men.
