After a two week British & Irish Cup break, Blues return to action on Saturday afternoon as they travel to the capital to take on Ealing Trailfinders at Vallis Way.

Bedford had shaken off their early season ring rust with two league victories over Richmond and Rotherham which they followed up with a win over the Dragons Premiership Select XV before being beaten in the Cup by Yorkshire Carnegie last weekend.

The hosts have made a solid start to the season and currently lie in fifth position with Bedford trailing them by four points and the Blues know Ealing have had some notable victories so far this season.

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.

Bedford Blues have named their squad to head to Selby Rugby Club on Saturday afternoon to take on Yorkshire Carnegie in Round Two of the British and Irish Cup.

The Blues got their cup campaign off to a positive start with a 46-33 bonus point win over the Dragons Premiership Select XV, but know that another tough challenge awaits them in Yorkshire against a Carnegie side who are yet to lose in the league this season.

The Bedford Blues online merchandise store is back, bigger and better than ever with all of your favourite apparel and accessories available to buy in plenty of time for Christmas.

Bedford ‘Pinks’ kicked off their 2016/17 British & Irish Cup campaign with a 46-33 bonus point win over the Dragons Premiership Select XV in an end-to-end game at Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon.

For the ninth season in a row, the Blues turned Pink for the annual Ladies Day which raises funds for Cancer Research UK and was once again well supported by 2218 fans in Goldington Road.

Bedford Blues will be turning Pink this weekend as they host the Newport Gwent Dragons Premiership Select side in the British & Irish Cup on Saturday which is also this year's Ladies Day fixture.

The Ladies Day match will be supporting Cancer Research UK once again and on top of two-for-one ground entry for all ladies (available on the match day gate only), there will be a host of offers and treats available in the Blues Marquee.

The annual Fireworks Display and Funfair is back at Bedford Blues on Friday 4th November 2016, and everything is in place to eclipse last year’s superb spectacle that brought in a full house at Goldington Road.

Gates open on the evening at 6pm for an action packed, fun filled evening of loud and colourful entertainment, once again sponsored by club partners Progress Skoda. Book early to avoid disappointment for this much anticipated event.

Goldington Road is busily preparing to welcome the female population of the region for the Blues’ annual Ladies Day as we attempt to turn Bedford pink this Saturday against Newport Gwent Dragons Prem Select (Kick Off 3pm, gates open 12 noon).

Again in support of Cancer Research UK, there are attractions for both men and women in the Blues Marquee, as well as another much anticipated rugby match as Blues aim to continue their good form in October against the Welshmen in the British & Irish Cup.

Bedford Blues put in a huge defensive display under the Friday Night Lights at Goldington Road to secure their second Championship win of the season as they overcame Rotherham Titans 17-16 on a soggy night at Goldington Road.

Tries for Dean Adamson and Jacob Fields put a nice shine on the win, but it was the defensive display from the entire squad that ensured that the Blues followed up last week’s win with another victory.
