1st XV News

Bedford Blues have increased their squad size for the 2017/18 Championship season up to 27 after two more members of the current crop put pen to paper on new deals.

Bolstering the front row options for another campaign will be prop Dave Spelman and hooker Jacob Fields.

Spelman, 23, suffered a frustrating first season at Goldington Road. Having featured in the matchday squad on a regular basis, he picked up an innocuous looking knee injury in training at the tail-end of 2016 that ended up ruling him out for the rest of the season.

The GKIPA Championship fixtures for the 2017/18 season have been announced with Bedford Blues opening their account away in the capital against Richmond on Saturday 2nd September before hosting their first home game versus London Scottish at Goldington Road a week later.

September will be a busy and difficult opening month with five fixtures for Mike Rayer’s men, including Ealing Trailfinders away, Bristol’s title favourite galaticos at home on Saturday 23rd before finishing the month with the always enjoyable trip to Jersey to face the Reds.

Bedford Blues Community are delighted to launch didi rugby classes from this Saturday, following a successful taster session, to bring our sport to the ages of 18 months to 6 years old.
