Bedford Blues are proud to announce we have been shortlisted for the Marketing Campaign of the Year Award in Bedfordshire Business Awards 2016.

The awards, launched by Beds on Sunday and sponsored by Barclays, recognise hardworking local businesses achieving success in our community.

From almost 200 entries, category judges have whittled the entrants down to the final three. Just one business will walk away with each prestigious title come the gala awards evening in November.

Bedford Blues three match winning run came to a halt on Saturday afternoon as they were defeated 52-28 by Yorkshire Carnegie in the British & Irish Cup at Selby Rugby Club.

The game kicked off 15 minutes later than scheduled due to the Blues coach breaking down en route to the match, but a second half blitz from Carnegie wrapped up the win for the hosts.

Things had started brightly for the Blues who came firing out the blocks and Myles Dorrian had put the visitors ahead with two well struck penalties, but there was further disruption as hooker Sam James had to be replaced early on in proceedings with a shoulder injury.
