Bedford Blues are pleased to announce the first new signing for the 2015/16 Greene King IPA Championship season along with four members of the current squad who have put pen to paper on new deals.

Captain Nick Fenton-Wells, hooker Charlie Clare and wingers Pat Tapley and Dean Adamson will be joined at Goldington Road next season by England Sevens star Sam Blanchet.

Bedford Blues fullback James Pritchard will join England’s Chris Jones and international players from Argentina, Fiji, Namibia and the USA in the Barbarians squad taking on Heriot’s next week to celebrate the Edinburgh club’s 125th anniversary.

Aviva Premiership and Greene King IPA Championship sides Exeter Chiefs, Saracens, Bedford Blues, Cornish Pirates, Jersey and Yorkshire Carnegie are all supporting the iconic invitation side for the Investec Cup match at Goldenacre on April 21 (6pm).

Bedford Blues gave their fans something to really cheer about on Saturday afternoon as they ran in five tries against Moseley in a result that secured the Blues stay in the Greene King IPA Championship. 

A double for Jake Sharp along with one apiece for Nick Fenton-Wells, Camilo Parilli-Ocampo and Pat Tapley helped the Blues to secure the bonus point win with James Pritchard converting three of the scores. 

It was tenth versus eleventh in the league as the Midland club arrived at Goldington Road looking to put some distance between themselves and bottom placed Plymouth Albion who had the daunting task of needing a win over Bristol. 

Bedford Blues know that their destiny is in their own hands when Moseley pay a visit to Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon.

With just three games remaining in the 2014/15 Greene King IPA Championship season, the Blues will be fighting tooth and nail to get the all important win that will ensure their status in the league.

But Mike Rayer’s men are fully aware that Moseley - who currently sit one place behind the Blues in 11th place - travel to Bedford desperately needing a win of their own to put some much needed space between themselves and bottom placed Plymouth Albion.
