Bedford Blues have taken their squad number up to 31 after two more players signed new deals to remain at Goldington Road for the 2015/16 Greene King IPA Championship season.

Fly-half Steffan Jones and back row forward Josh Buggea have both put pen-to-paper to remain at the Blues for the new campaign.

Jones, 24, joined the Blues on a permanent deal in January 2015 following his involvement with Wales in the HSBC Sevens World Series. Jones first signed for Bedford in the summer on a year long loan move from Newport Gwent Dragons, but was recalled by the region in early November before heading off with the National Sevens Team.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce that four further members of the current squad have put pen-to-paper on new deals to remain at Goldington Road next season.

The quartet of stars are lock Harry Wells, scrum-half Peter White, fly-half Jake Sharp and centre Mike Le Bourgeois.

Speaking to the official Club website this morning about the four re-signings, Blues Director of Rugby Mike Rayer said:

“It is extremely pleasing that these four, talented young players have signed on once again for another campaign at Goldington Road.

Bedford Blues and Saracens will once again be working together next season as it was confirmed that five talented youngsters will be heading to Goldington Road for the 2015/16 Greene King IPA Championship season.

The likes of Owen Farrell, George Kruis, Jackson Wray, James Short, Ben Ransom and Will Fraser all gained valuable experience with the Blues before going on to make a huge impact with Saracens and the same is hoped for the current crop who will be heading up the M1 from Allianz Park.

The NSPCC has teamed up with the Bedford Blues, who are supporting the charity’s latest campaign – The Really Big Board Game Day, and are appealing to people across Bedford to stage an event and help make the day a regular in the social calendar.

If you’re a Monopoly fanatic, an Operation obsessive or a Buckaroo evangelist, then why not get a few friends, neighbours or colleagues together to play your favourite board games on Friday 15 May, and you can help to protect childhoods from abuse and neglect.
