MATCH FOCUS: BLUES TAKE ON RICHMOND

The action doesn’t stop at Goldington Road with a double home match week! Greene King IPA Championship rugby makes its return to Goldington Road this Saturday 13th April as the Blues look to bounce back with a victory over bottom placed Richmond (KO 3pm). Book online discounted tickets here

The Blues currently lie in fourth place, just three points adrift of third placed Jersey Reds who face second placed Ealing Trailfinders this weekend. This week’s visitors Richmond are locked in a relegation fight with Hartpury with both teams finding some recent form. 

Even in defeat at Hartpury last time out, the Blues had no problems finding their way over the whitewash, so will be looking to continue their hot scoring run on Saturday back at home. With Richmond expected to come out fighting in their battle for survival, a strong 16th man will be needed behind the Blues charge!

Gates open from 12 noon giving you plenty of time to grab a match programme and make your way to one of our bars to soak up some pre-match atmosphere. Our choice would be the upstairs Eagle Bar where you will find a superb selection of hand-pull ales, as well as this week’s Guest Ale; Jennings Vantage Point.

Hospitality is now sold out for this fixture around the ground! We would like to extend a special welcome to all those attending the Former Players Spring Lunch in the Blues Marquee.

As the teams run out, be sure to give a big Blues welcome to the children from Westfield School who will be waving the flags as this week’s Autoglass Guard of Honour with the Bedford Bear. If you have a team or school you’d like to enter to form our welcome tunnel, email community@bedfordrugby.co.uk

Stick around when the final whistle goes! The Blues Marquee will be the place to be for the presentation of the Anglian Fasteners Man of the Match award before Leon Bratt takes to the stage to get your weekend party started! 

As always, the Eagle Bar will be the place to be for the Michael R Peters Final Whistle. Enjoy live post-match reaction from players or coaches; and remember you can win yourself a pint of Greene King IPA just by asking a question!

Don’t forget to show your colours Blues fans! Head to the Club Shop where you will find the latest and greatest in replica kit, as well as leisurewear items and accessories. The shop is located next to the marquee entrance.
