Bedford Blues are gearing themselves up for another huge challenge this weekend as they head to the Madejski Stadium to take on London Irish in Round Four of the Greene King IPA Championship.

Despite a narrow defeat to Coventry last Saturday, Mike Rayer's men showed plenty of grit and determination to take two bonus points having slipped to 29-7 deficit within the first 40 minutes and they'll be hoping to show just as much passion this Sunday against the former Premiership side.

Blues Community are pleased to relaunch the Match Day Guard of Honour package in partnership with Club Sponsors Autoglass.

The revamped initiative has definitely improved the match day experience for participants and spectators alike as we welcome the next generation to Goldington Road for a special experience.

The Club would like to thank SSG Services for their partnership since inception of the scheme, but with the growth of Blues Community the delivery will come back in house thanks to the sponsorship of Autoglass.

Following the success of our summer camp, Blues Community are pleased to announce the dates of the October Half Term Rugby Camp at Goldington Road for Tuesday 23rd, Wednesday 24th and Thursday 25th October, click here to book your place.

Open to children of all ages and abilities, the ‘Learn to Play the Blues way’ camp will be led by the Blues Head of Community with current first team Blues players taking some of the sessions.

Kimberley Sixth Form College has launched a rugby development programme in partnership with Bedford Blues Rugby Club. This exciting new initiative, starting in September, will see coaching staff from Blues Community, alongside teaching staff at the College, deliver a bespoke training and coaching programme to students.

As part of this exciting initiative Kimberley College, located in Stewartby, will launch their first Sixth Form rugby team. The students will also act as young ambassadors, representing both Kimberley, which is part of Wootton Academy Trust, and Blues Community.

As the first home Championship match of the season fast approaches this weekend, Bedford Blues are delighted to introduce their new collectable Eco Cup scheme at Goldington Road.

The new environmentally friendly pint cups, produced by Green Goblet, will be launched at this Saturday’s match against Jersey Reds at a cost of £1. The cups can be continually used, kept or recycled to the bar in exchange for your £1 refundable deposit.

Bedford Blues are pleased to announce further details of the brand new Lifesure Hospitality Suite at Goldington Road, now available for match day and event hire bookings for up to 100 guests.

As announced in July, working together with SDC, one of the club’s major sponsors, work has been progressing on our biggest single project to date in replacing the former Lifesure Suites with a new and improved venue.

The club would also like to pay tribute to the extreme generosity of Old Bedfordian Michael E Jeffrey who left the Blues a sizeable donation. The Trustees and Club were jointly keen for his legacy to provide a lasting memory.
