Bedford Blues picked up their first win of their Championship Cup campaign with a convincing six try 43-14 rout of Hartpury at Goldington Road on Friday night.

A brace of tries from Alex Penny along with a penalty and one each fro Pat Tapley, Harry Davies and Justin Blanchet secured the bonus point which Lewis Robling converted four and added a penalty for an 11 point haul.

It may have been a drizzly and miserable night, but it didn’t stop 2143 fans from turning up at Goldington Road and they were treated to plenty of action from the off with the Blues scoring four first half tries.

With the Championship Cup starting for Bedford Blues on Sunday 11th November down at Cornish Pirates, I would just like to take this opportunity to reassure our supporters that we, as a club, are taking this competition extremely seriously.
I know that there was a fair amount of scepticism about this competition when it launched and people wondering why a cup including Premiership teams or those from National One could not be included, but this is what we have and Mike and the players will be doing all they can to bring silverware back to Goldington Road.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce that they have been selected to host the Under 20s Six Nations clash between England and Italy on Friday 8th March 2019 (Kick Off 19:45) live on Sky Sports.

Goldington Road will open its gates to Steve Bates’ charges as they prepare to face the Azzurri in the fourth round of the competition and the day before the senior sides battle it out at Twickenham.

Tickets for the game are on sale now and you can save up to £4 by ordering in advance by clicking here.

An additional allocation of Eagle Stand and Ground Entry tickets have now been released for the big Boxing Day match against our close neighbours Ampthill, with some of the best seats in the house available.

Season Ticket holders have now passed the deadline for early purchase of their existing seat, but will find a good selection of premium seats still available online for just £10 in the Eagle Stand.
