With Bedford Blues heading into the second block of pre-season training, the club are delighted to announce the signing of utility back Charlie Reed from Loughborough Students.
In a tale similar to Rich Lane, Charlie, 23,  is a Bedford born back who came through the ranks at the Junior Blues before heading on to play for the Blues Academy and Bedford Athletic. He continued to play while at university in Manchester - including a stint in Sale Sharks sevens team - before heading to Loughborough Students where his dazzling displays last season saw him names as fullback in the Rugby Paper National One Team of the Season.

Bedford Blues and Eagle Brewery are delighted to have announced a new three-year partnership into June 2022.

Championing the best of Bedford, Eagle Brewery has signed a three-year major sponsorship agreement with Bedford Blues after working with the club for almost 25 years as its official drinks’ supplier.

Separate from the sponsorship rights agreement, the new contract has enabled the club to install brand-new dispensing equipment in the marquee bar, along with Bedford-brewed beers being made available throughout the ground on matchdays, providing Blues fans with local ‘Eagle Fresh’ beer all the time.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce prop Sean McCarthy as club captain for the 2019/20 Greene King IPA Championship season.

The impact made by McCarthy since joining the Blues from Jersey Reds in the summer of 2017 has been truly remarkable and he has truly embedded himself in the Bedford front row making over 50 appearances in his two seasons at Goldington Road.

Following the retirement of scrum half Lee Dickson at the end of last season, Blues Director of Rugby Mike Rayer has installed the captaincy on 28 year old McCarthy who is already one of the senior and most respected members of the Bedford squad.

Bedford Blues will be going head to head with their Welsh namesakes ahead of the Championship season when they welcome the boys from Cardiff to Goldington Road on Saturday 14th September.

With Bedford taking on Cambridge on Friday 23rd August, the challenge against Wales’ Capital Region will be a stern one just a week before the 2019/20 campaign.
