BLUES COMMUNITY APPOINT DOMINIC FRASER

Bedford Blues are thrilled to announce the appointment of Dominic Fraser as the new Head of Community.

Blues Community, launched in August 2016, has enjoyed two years of success, supporting and delivering many projects across the region thanks to the superb work of Ben Gulliver, Jon Phillips and Sports in Schools.

With a slight change in direction and growth plans under the new HoC as all management comes in house, the community programme will be looking to increase provisions of our services in schools, clubs and groups in Bedfordshire and opportunities in the wider community.

Fraser, who started in the role this month, brings plenty of experience and enthusiasm to the position with a strong, clear vision moving forward, and at 23-years-old has a real passion to grow the community project at Bedford Blues.

In a short career to date, Fraser has impressive pedigree having gained a sports scholarship at Dulwich College and playing for the Saracens Academy from the age of 12 to 19 along with two of his brothers’ Henry and Will Fraser. He arrives at the Blues having ran his own rugby coaching business and worked with Saracens Community and Foundation.

Bedford Blues Chief Operating Officer, Gareth Alred, added: “We are delighted with the appointment of Dominic and excited about the future growth of Blues Community. There will be many challenges over the next few months and year, but we are committed to the Community project and see real growth and impact in the work already being done.”

Blues Community has so far reached out to eight counties and 46 schools, directly impacting over 1,200 pupils a month.
