It took a while to come but the monkey has finally been booted into touch as Bedford Blues recorded their first win of the season against a very resilient Llanelli side in the British & Irish Cup. It was Ladies Day at Goldington Road with 2603 fans in attendance and tries from Charlie Clare, Ollie Dodge, Mike Le Bourgeois, Mike Howard and Neville Edwards ensured a bonus point win for the crowd.

Despite dominating huge chunks of the game, Llanelli kept on sneaking their way back into it but their late rally was a little too late to spoil the Bedford party. For Full Report Click Here...

It appears that the elusive first win of the season will have to wait another week for Bedford Blues following another single point defeat to a Yorkshire club.

The conditions in Rotherham may have resembled monsoon season making the ball hard to keep hold of, but the Blues adapted well, fought hard, scored the only try of the game through Darren Fox but were ultimately left massively disappointed not to pick up the win.

Bedford Blues have partnered with Bedford Company No Nonsense Technology for the launch of the club’s new website.

The Blues new website has been built to meet the evolving needs of the rugby club.  It has a fresh modern design providing clearer navigation with the new homepage delivering a snapshot of latest headlines and results. The new site is fully compatible with all modern browsers, operating systems and devices as well as being smartphone friendly.

The new look Bedford Blues website will no longer link to an official fans forum or “Have Your Say” as it was known. Following feedback received from supporters and ever increasing issues with regard to running, administrating and moderating Have Your Say, it was decided to close this forum.

The Club believes that moving forward any fans forum should be separate from the official web site.
