Tickets for this afternoon's game against Bristol are still available to buy on the Goldington Road gate. We are expecting a large crowd today so please leave plenty of time to get here, purchase your ticket and get through the gates. COME ON YOU BLUES!!!

Bedford Blues will be hoping to continue the Christmas celebrations when they welcome table-topping Bristol to Goldington Road on Boxing Day for a huge festive clash.
 
A bumper crowd is expected at the game with the Blues looking to continue their recent good form but they will face their sternest test of the season against Andy Robinson's men who are yet to taste defeat.
 
It was four years ago that the two sides met on the same date and on that encounter Bedford Blues fans helped to clear four inches of snow from the pitch before Mike Rayer's men went on to win the game 39-22.
 

Day 24 of the Blues Advent Calendar and Christmas Eve wishes you season greetings and a very Merry Christmas from all at Bedford Blues.

The Club would like to thank supporters for their loyal backing season in, season out and look forward to welcoming a healthy crowd to Goldington Road on Boxing Day.

Online ticket sales for Boxing Day have now closed, but there will be plenty of tickets available at the gate on match-day and we hope to see the town out in force to cheer on Mike Rayer’s Blues.

Don’t miss out on the big bumper Boxing Day clash against Bristol! Preparations are taking shape, logistics being put in place, on and off-field entertainment scheduled and lots of tickets are still available on the gate to help make this Boxing Day another great occasion.

Ticket pre-sales have been going well at the Blues with lots of supporters taking advantage of the online advance discount which closes on Wednesday 24 December at 9am, but if you’ve haven’t purchased yours yet, fear not – there are plenty of tickets available on the gate with zero risk of not getting in.

The Blues Academy play their final game before the Christmas break when they travel to play Shelford U21 XV tonight. Wednesday December 17th. 

Bedford again rotate their squad, making seven changes to the starting lineup that beat Saracens two weeks ago.  In the pack Owen Griffiths starts at hooker, Lewis Brunger at prop, Alex Burman at second row, and Zachary Scott-Gray (Richard Hale School and Herts U18s) makes his debut at No.8.  In the back line Dylan Leney starts at scrum half, Cameron Ives at centre and Max Titchener at full back.  Winger Richard Stewart (Tring and Herts U18s) and fly half Nat Abery (St, Joseph’s College, Ipswich) make their debuts on the bench.

Delivery for all online ticket orders for the Bristol match on Boxing Day will close this Thursday 18 December, but fear not all subsequent ticket orders after this date will be placed on the ticket collection window for match-day rather than running the risk of arrival later than Christmas Day.

All online shop orders from stock will also close for Christmas delivery on Wednesday 17 December at 12 noon, with last postage sent the morning of Thursday 18 December. However any online shop orders placed after this date will be available to collect from either the Christmas Market in Bedford town centre this Saturday or from the Club General Office.

Bedford Blues fans can have themselves a merry little Christmas following an absolute cracker of a game at Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon as the home side put on a superb performance to win 41-40.

A brace of tries from Paul Tupai along with one apiece for Dean Adamson, Pat Tapley and James Pritchard – who also converted all five as well as two conversions – ensured that the Blues won in a game that was tense throughout.

Stick around after the match on Saturday to join the Christmas celebrations as Bedford Blues host a variety of post-match entertainment in the Blues Marquee following the final whistle with live music and a Christmas Forum.

Musician Mark Calder will be getting the party started with his guitar and a few chosen tunes to keep everyone in the festive mood before we unleash forwards coach and part-time MC Martin Hynes on the crowd, you may even see a duet dependant on the mood.  

It’s the sixth and final round of the British & Irish Cup and Bedford Blues know that they will have to continue with their improvement when the Cornish Pirates visit Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon.
 
Games between the two sides are normally close affairs but when Bedford travelled to Penzance three weeks ago they were on the wrong end of a 65-14 score line. It was an extremely long journey home that weekend, but the Blues have dusted themselves down and are now preparing to put things right on the field.
