The Blues are straight back to Goldington Road this weekend for their final pre-season challenge against Pontypridd in our first Saturday afternoon of the season (Kick Off 15:00).

Pontypridd, Welsh Principality Premiership winners four out of the last five seasons, will be looking to level proceedings and seek revenge following Bedford’s comprehensive victory a fortnight ago in South Wales.

Whilst Mike Rayer’s troops will be dusting themselves down after a tough meeting with Saracens last Friday night which heralded plenty of positives for the Blues ahead of Championship action on the first weekend of September.

Attention all 2016-17 Season Ticket holders; your welcome pack and new Season Ticket cards will be sent out later this week, Monday 22nd August, and your ticket to Championship and British & Irish Cup pool stage rugby at Goldington Road will be with you very soon.

The Club expect all members to receive their pack early next week and whilst every effort is made for your ticket to arrive quickly and safely, there is always the chance that it will take a little longer than expected. If you have not received your ticket by next Wednesday 31st August, then please contact the club immediately so that we can address any potential issue.

Bedford Blues continued their preparations for the 2016/17 Championship season with a good run out against Saracens on Friday night.

The visitors may have taken the spoils with a 21-36 victory, but there was plenty for the Blues faithful to be excited about as Mike Rayer’s men ran in three tries against the Premiership and European Champions.

Pat Tapley, Sam James and Camilo Parilli-Ocampo were the men to cross the whitewash in front of 3050 fans while Saracens responded with a brace apiece for Mike Ellery and Schalk Brits while Henry Taylor and Nick Tompkins also dotted down.

Bedford Blues have named their squad to take on Premiership and European Champions Saracens at Goldington Road on Friday night.
The game, which kicks off at 7.45pm, will be the first chance for Blues fans to see the new squad in action at Goldington Road while also having the opportunity to see both the Premiership and European Cups on display when Saracens pay a visit.
Bedford racked up a convincing 66-14 win over Pontypridd last weekend but they know that a much tougher challenge awaits them on Friday night.

The Club are pleased to announce further details of this season's ‘Meet the Players’ evening which will be held on Thursday 25th August from 6pm at Goldington Road, exclusively for 2016-17 Season Ticket holders.
The new incentive was again included in the Season Ticket package following the success of last season's inaugural session with an early chance to hear the views of the Director of Rugby Mike Rayer, new captain Michael Le Bourgeois and other selected players ahead of the Championship campaign.
