In just over nine months Rugby World Cup 2015 will come to Milton Keynes, the nearest host venue to Bedford Blues, and they need your help to make the whole event extra special.

In the centre of MK, Campbell Park will host the Fanzone between October 1-11 and there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer at this special event. You can find out more about getting involved at an information event being held from 6.30pm – 8pm on Thursday 15 January at Campbell Park Pavilion. The Parks Trust staff will be on hand to tell you about what’s planned for the Fanzone and to explain the many different volunteering roles that are available.

Bedford Blues maintained their unbeaten start to 2015 but they left it very late to overcome a determined Doncaster Knights side who had led for the majority of the game.

In fact, the winning try came with 15 seconds left on the clock as Jake Sharp found himself out on the right wing to dot down and send the Goldington Road crowd into rapturous applause before James Pritchard tied a bow on the game to convert and make the score 35-29.

Bedford Blues Academy played their first game since the Christmas break, away to Ealing on their synthetic 3G pitch.  With two last minute changes in the back line, due to an injury in the warm up, and a late arrival, Bedford had to rearrange their back line minutes before the kick off.  Playing up the hill, and against a strong wind in the first half, the Blues turned around at half time down by 22pts – 17.  The second half was a different affair with the Blues scoring 31 unanswered points to win by 48pts – 22.

Bedford Blues will be hoping to continue the New Year celebrations as they welcome Doncaster Knights to Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon.
 
The Blues got 2015 off to the best possible start with a 15-23 win over Moseley at Billesley Common and Director of Rugby Mike Rayer is hoping that his side can continue their recent good form against a Doncaster team who have already notched up two B&I Cup wins over Bedford this season.
 

Following an eight-point victory over Moseley at Billesley Common on Saturday, Director of Rugby, Mike Rayer was left feeling confident of a top six finish at the end of the season with the top four still in sight.

The Blues got 2015 off to a bright start last weekend, running in three tries against the Midlanders to make it an impressive total 17 from their last four matches and Rayer is looking for another solid performance this Saturday against Doncaster.
