Bedford Blues were given one of their toughest training sessions of pre-season when they put through their paces with a Mixed Martial Arts workout.

The lads headed along to the Rising Crane Centre in Melbourne Street where they met up with David Rogers who is the Chief Instructor of Rising Crane which is Bedford’s longest running fully equipped, full time Martial arts academy.

Bedford Blues have confirmed that all but two of their home fixtures for the 2015/16 Greene King IPA Championship will take place on Saturdays with a 3pm kick-off.

Bedford Blues Rugby Club was this week sadly informed that former player and captain George Jenkins has passed away. George, who was 99 years and 6 months at the time of his death, was actually the Club's oldest former player and oldest captain.

Between 1946-53 George made 128 appearances in the back row, scoring 37 tries and was captain of the 1950-51 squad.

Hailing from Abercarn in Wales, flanker George never forgot his time at Bedford and the Club would like to extend our sincere sympathy to his family and friends. Once a Blue, always a Blue.
 

Bedford Blues have added 21 year old Harlequins scrum half Jordan Burns to their squad for the 2015/16 Greene King IPA Championship season.

This weekend Bedford Blues earlybird Season Ticket prices draw to a close, but for any applications sent across the weekend the Club will hold the discount prices. The Blues 2015/16 membership campaign saw another successive price freeze for renewing Season Ticket holder supporters. Below, we have produced a short video and rationale around our 'Join the Blues family' showreal demostrating the real people who make the club what it is... YOU! 

The aim is simple; to provide our supporters with more than just a ticket to all matches, more than a bucket full of additional benefits, but that of being part of our community family.
