The Blues Academy are at home this weekend when they welcome Moseley to Goldington Road on Saturday.

The game kicks off at 2pm, admission is free, the bar is open and Six Nations rugby is on TV - all are welcome.

Following defeat against Worcester Warriors at Goldington Road on Saturday, Bedford Blues will be looking to bounce straight back against Yorkshire Carnegie when they make the trip to Leeds on Sunday 8th March. 

The Blues suffered a 32-17 defeat to former Premiership side Warriors at the weekend having been 17-0 up at half time, but Backs Coach Paul Larkin insists there were plenty of positives to take forward ahead of the Blues’ trip to Yorkshire.

Former Saints man, Larkin believes applying pressure to the opposition was Bedford’s biggest strength in the first half against Worcester and will again be key to success in a hopeful victory at Headingley Carnegie.

Bedford Blues are pleased to announce that scrum half Luke Baldwin is set to rejoin the club on loan from Bristol until the end of the Greene King IPA Championship season.

Baldwin, 24, spent two and a half seasons with Bedford from 2010 and played a pivotal role in helping the Blues reach the 2012/13 Championship final against Newcastle Falcons.

In December 2013, the former Saracens man agreed a deal with Bristol before making one final appearance in a Blues shirt as Bedford overcame London Welsh - who would go on to win promotion to the Premiership - 28-26 in a thrilling game at Goldington Road.

There are numerous sporting clichés that should never be used in a match report – always play to the whistle, don’t talk back to the referee, they’re in a league of their own  - but on Saturday afternoon the ugliest one of all reared its head. This truly was a ‘game of two halves’...

If Mr Foley hadn’t blown his whistle after 40 minutes then it could have been an extremely good day to be at Goldington Road. Viliami Hakalo had scored one try and set up a second while James  Pritchard converted both and Jake Sharp dropped a goal – not bad being 17-0 up against the league leaders.

Blues new recruit Baden Kerr has bedded into life at Goldington Road, securing the starting full-back jersey in his first two weeks at the Club following a long break due to injury, but is not content with just earning his place and intends to help the Blues elevate their current league position.

In Kerr’s debut performance the Blues eased passed Plymouth Albion, scoring five tries, in front of a home crowd to seal both the win and bonus point before falling to a rather disappointing result on their travels against Jersey at the weekend.

It’s not every day that you get to have dinner with an England Rugby World Cup winner and former British and Irish Lions captain, but for one evening only Bedford Blues are making that possible as Martin Corry MBE comes to Goldington Road for a Sportsman’s Dinner.

Now retired from the game, Corry has carved out another successful career, becoming one of the most inspirational motivational and performance speakers in the world. Winning five Premiership titles and two Heineken Cups throughout his time on the pitch, the former England and Leicester Tigers skipper has many exciting stories to tell.

Beer, beer, we want more beer, all the boys are cheering, get the… and on that note it is time to announce the first Rugby and Beer festival taking place at Goldington Road next month.

While there is nothing better than watching Bedford Blues playing rugby, the experience can always be improved and on the weekend of Friday 20th and Saturday 21st March, Blues fans will be able to enjoy top-class rugby alongside some of the finest beers available from our good friends at Charles Wells Brewery.
