Ted Carroll and Bedford Blues are delighted to welcome former Bath, Saracens and England prop David Flatman to Goldington Road for a Sportsman's dinner on Friday 2nd March.

Such is the demand to attend the evening that just two tables remain available for what is sure to be a fantastic night with renowned TV pundit and podcast host, Flatman - who won eight caps for England - who will be sharing stories from his stellar rugby career along with a few opinions on the state of the current game and maybe a view on the Six Nations which will have two rounds remaining.

The Club was saddened to learn of the death of former committee member and Club stalwart, Ray Laughton, at the age of 93 years old.

Ray regularly attended Bedford Blues' home games and could often be found pre-match enjoying himself with friends in the Former Players' Bar at Goldington Road. 

Unfortunately, more recently, illness prevented his attendance at matches this season.

Ray's late wife Betty also helped prepare and serve the players' post-match meals for some years. Both were heavily involved in the running of the club throughout the very successful 1970s and 80s.

Are you a Strength & Conditioning Coach looking for your next role? Do you fancy joining one of the most exciting rugby teams in the UK? Have you got at least 12 months experience working with elite level sport athletes? If you can answer yes to these three questions then you could be the person for us!

Bedford Blues are on the lookout for a brand new Head Strength & Conditioning Coach reporting directly to the Director of Rugby. Working in a dynamic and innovative environment, the successful candidate will take a lead role in planning, delivering and reporting on all aspects of the Strength & Conditioning programme of the Senior Playing Group.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce that captain Michael Le Bourgeois has put pen to paper on a brand new deal that will keep him at Goldington Road until 2020.

Le Bourgeois, 27, has been in spectacular form this season and continues to be one of the standout centres playing in the Greene King IPA Championship. He was first named captain of the Blues at the end of the 2015/16 campaign before taking on the job full-time the following season.

Bedford Blues were within seconds of drawing a third Greene King IPA Championship game when their very own Captain America came to the rescue to convert a penalty with the final kick of the game.

The Blues had cruised into a 15-0 half-time lead against Rotherham Titans at Clifton Lane thanks to tries from Rich Lane and Elliot Clements-Hill with the aforementioned Will Hooley converting one and kicking a penalty. But the home side, who are languishing at the foot of the Championship table, fought back valiantly thanks to a converted Rhodri Davies try, a Caolan Ryan penalty and a Jake Henry score to level the game with the clock ticking away.

On the back of another successful Blues Community Holiday Rugby Camp, we are delighted to announce the full list of Community sponsors supporting our delivery this year in schools, clubs and groups across Bedfordshire and beyond.

A few of the club’s community sponsors visited the club last week to gain some first-hand experience of what the Community department have been up to and launch the new community kit in collaboration with clothing partner Zoo Sports.
