With the Championship Cup starting for Bedford Blues on Sunday 11th November down at Cornish Pirates, I would just like to take this opportunity to reassure our supporters that we, as a club, are taking this competition extremely seriously.
 
I know that there was a fair amount of scepticism about this competition when it launched and people wondering why a cup including Premiership teams or those from National One could not be included, but this is what we have and Mike and the players will be doing all they can to bring silverware back to Goldington Road.
 

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce that they have been selected to host the Under 20s Six Nations clash between England and Italy on Friday 8th March 2019 (Kick Off 19:45) live on Sky Sports.

Goldington Road will open its gates to Steve Bates’ charges as they prepare to face the Azzurri in the fourth round of the competition and the day before the senior sides battle it out at Twickenham.

Tickets for the game are on sale now and you can save up to £4 by ordering in advance by clicking here.

An additional allocation of Eagle Stand and Ground Entry tickets have now been released for the big Boxing Day match against our close neighbours Ampthill, with some of the best seats in the house available.

Season Ticket holders have now passed the deadline for early purchase of their existing seat, but will find a good selection of premium seats still available online for just £10 in the Eagle Stand. 

Bedford Blues played their ‘get out of jail’ free card as they picked up a bonus point win over Hartpury in the Greene King IPA Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Leading 26-24 with time up on the clock, the Blues gave away a kickable penalty just inside their 22. Hartpury centre Sam Leeming stepped up, just as he had a few minutes earlier from an almost identical position to add extras from the fourth try for the visitors, but he pulled this attempt wide and handed the Blues the win.

Bedford Blues return to home soil this weekend for another huge challenge in the Greene King IPA Championship against Hartpury College.

The Blues head into the game off the back of three wins over Yorkshire Carnegie, Doncaster Knights and Cornish Pirates, who they defeated 29-30 at Mennaye Field on Sunday.

But Beford know that they certainly won't have everything their own way this weekend as the visitors gave the Blues two epic games last season and have started this campaign in fine form picking up some impressive victories along the way.

Bedford Blues return home this Satuday 27th October to face Hartpury at Goldington Road, following a crucial one-point victory away at Cornish Pirates last weekend (KO 3pm).   

The Blues have shown great resilience in the past two weeks to carve out successive single point victories in their outings against Doncaster Knights and Pirates to elevate them to fifth in the Greene King IPA Championship.

The visitors, Hartpury, have endured a tough start to the season and arrive in town on a four-game losing streak. However, Mike Rayer’s men will be aware of the threat the West Countrymen pose after scraping a narrow 21-26 victory at the College last time the two met.

Enjoy the best seat in the house with VIP hospitality and dining in the new Lifesure Suite at the Bedford Blues Fireworks and Funfair Display on Friday 2nd Novemeber. 

Experience an unrivaled and exclusive hospitality package for 10 people at a cost of £500 (individual places also available). Simply email sophie@bedfordrugby.co.uk or hollie@bedfordrugby.co.uk to book. 

The Lifesure Suite is a shared hospitality venue for up to 100 guests. Equipped with a superb private bar and viewing balcony, it will make for the perfect spot to watch the evening’s Fireworks displays.

Bedford Blues put in an extraordinary display at the Mennaye Field on Sunday afternoon to pick up a hugely important 29-30 win over the Cornish Pirates in the Green King IPA Championship.

Tries from Rich Lane, Ryan Hutler and Dean Adamson along with 12 points from the boot of Will Hooley and a thunder-like penalty from Lewis Robling sealed the win, but the Blues defence was tested until the very final second of the game.

Bedford got an early opportunity when Will Hooley’s kick-off was knocked on, but the Pirates defended with plenty of grit following the scrum and the Blues just weren’t able to make the most of the early possession.

Bedford Blues have named their 22-man squad which will take on the Cornish Pirates at the Mennaye Field on Sunday afternoon in the Greene King IPA Championship.

This weekend's game will be the first of three clashes between the two sides before Christmas as they prepare to face off in league and cup competitions.

The Blues versus the Pirates is rarely a dull affair, and much will be expected when third meet fourth in Penzance.

Ladies Day 2018 at Bedford Blues was another huge success in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
