Bedford Blues will be looking to continue their good form as they head across the English Channel on Saturday to face Jersey at St Peter’s.

The Blues have won three out of five in the Greene King IPA Championship with the latest victory being against Nottingham at Goldington Road last weekend which saw an outstanding defence display going a long way to securing the points.

Games between Jersey and Bedford are always hard fought affairs but St Peter’s is a ground that the players enjoy playing on and the fans love visiting.

The Blues Academy welcome Loughborough University U21 XV to Goldington Road on Saturday – KO 2.00 pm.

Making their debuts for the Blues Academy in the starting lineup are ex-Millfield School prop, Henry Peck, Portugal U18 international centre Jose Fernandes and ex-St.Joseph’s College Ipswich wing, Ross Taylor.  Hoping to make their debuts off the bench are ex-Junior Blue 2nd row, Kyron Houston, Wotton School flanker, Tim Herbert, and ex-Llandovery College fly half, Ben Phillips.  The side will be captained by prop Charley Robinson.

Bedford Blues’ annual Fireworks Display and Funfair will be back on Friday 6th November 2015 at Goldington Road, and is set to be bigger and better than ever!

Gates open on the evening at 6pm for an action packed, fun filled evening of loud and colourful entertainment, once again sponsored by Progress Skoda. Book early to avoid disappointment following the success of last year.

Bedford Blues winger George Perkins has been nominated as one of the entries for the Championship Player of the Month competition.

The dual registered Saracens back has been in sparkling form since moving to Goldington Road and has run in three tries - one against Bristol and two against London Welsh.

To recognise the standout individuals from across the competition, a panel of key regional and national media with vast knowledge of the Championship will submit their Greene King IPA Player of the Month nominees to public vote. A shortlist of nominees will be revealed towards the end of every month, to include an average of three rounds.

Two of the town’s great institutions are coming together once again to host a spectacular, bigger and better, three day Rugby and Beer Festival weekender at Goldington Road on Friday 16th, Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th October following the inaugural success of the event last season.

While there is nothing better than watching Bedford Blues playing rugby, the experience can always be improved and in under two weeks 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.

Bedford Blues dug deep and put in a fantastic defensive display as they overcame Nottingham 28-19 at Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon.

Tries from Pat Tapley, Sam Blanchet and Jordan Burns sealed the win, but it was the defence against the Green and Whites that deservedly took the plaudits at full time as the majority of the 2101 fans went home happy.

Playing up the slope in the opening half, the Blues came hurtling out the blocks in fine fashion and were hitting every Nottingham player who attempted to make a break. The pick of the bunch came from Sam Blanchet who flattened Viliami Hakalo and left the Tongan visibly rocked as he got back to his feet.

Bedford Blues were delighted to unveil the new Club mascot last Saturday as a remake of the former Bedford Bear, redesigned and manufactured to be the community face of the Blues and help reconnect with the next generation of supporters.

Launched at Blues match against Moseley with his extended family of Bedford Bear bothers, the new mascots proved a successful addition and will be at all home games and across the town this season.

Supported by Bedford School Sports Partnership, the new mascot was designed by competition winner Ayo Ajayi, from Newnham Middle School, who we welcomed and hosted in hospitality last Saturday.

With Rugby World Cup 2015 starting this Friday with the opening ceremony and England v Fiji at Twickenham, why not share it with fellow Blues fans by watching the games at Goldington Road, surrounded by friends, fellow supporters and most importantly, ‘Happy Hour’ drinks prices.
