Bedford Blues have started the building process for the 2019/20 Championship season by agreeing new deals for four players from the current squad.

Props Alex Penny and Sean McCarthy have both put pen-to-paper on brand new contracts at Goldington Road as have winger Ryan Hutler and fullback Rich Lane.

Speaking about the new deals, Blues Director of Rugby Mike Rayer said: “There’s been a lot work going behind the scenes in getting our retention and recruitment for next season and these four signings were and are very important to us.

Following the success of our February half-term camp, Blues Community are delighted to announce TWO more exciting Rugby Camps this Easter between the dates of 9th - 11th April and 16th - 18th April. Click here to book now. 

Both camps are open to boys and girls between the ages 5-15 with all levels of ability welcome. Led by Head of Community, Dominic Fraser, and supported by experienced coaches, including Blues players, youngsters will all enjoy a first class rugby experience.

Bedford Blues ran in five tries as they romped to a 17-35 win over London Scottish at Richmond Athletic Ground on Saturday afternoon.

Bedford were clinical in their finishing as Ryan Hutler, Rich Lane, Huw Worthington, Matt Worley and Dean Adamson all crossed the whitewash during an impressive display in the Capital.

Two early penalties gave Blues a great attacking platform and despite a lineout drive not kicking into gear, Lee Dickson spread the ball wide for Ryan Hutler to dot down for an unconverted score.

Goldington Road will be opening its gates on Wednesday 10th April 2019 for the return of the annual Mobbs Memorial Match as Bedford Blues prepare to go into battle against The British Army (Kick Off 7:45pm).

Lieutenant Colonel Edgar Mobbs DSO - a true England rugby legend and a genuine hero of World War I - died during the Third Battle of Ypres while attacking a machine gun post.
