1st XV News

The construction process at Goldington Road continues this week with the signing of a Scotland Under 20s hooker as well as new deals for seven current squad members.

With just one game remaining in the Greene King IPA Championship, Bedford Blues have already secured the services of 20 players for next season after agreeing a deal with Wasps hooker Sam James as well as Props Phil Boulton, Camilo Parilli-Ocampo and James Currie, Second Rower Mike Howard, Back Rower Justin Blanchet, and centres Ollie Dodge and Henry Staff.

Bedford Blues have further strengthened their squad for the 2015/16 Greene King IPA Championship season with the loan signings of Wasps duo Piers O'Conor and Alex Lundberg.

England Under 20s fullback O’Conor, 19, and prop Lundberg, 20, have been training with the senior Wasps squad all season and both featured in the LV=Cup this season. The pair also made their Goldington Road debuts during the Mobbs Memorial game at the beginning of the month.

Bedford Blues return to Goldington Road this weekend for their final match of the 2014/15 Greene King IPA Championship season as they prepare to face fifth placed Nottingham on Saturday 25th April (Kick Off 3pm).

The Club hope supporters will turn out in force to mark the close of another Championship season and End of Season Party with live music following the final whistle and the Followers’ Player of the Season Presentation.

Bedford Blues will be opening its gates this Sunday 26th April to some of the most talented young rugby players in the country as Goldington Road plays host to the Under 19s 10-a-side tournament.

The invitational competition is designed to showcase the player development work being carried out across a number of Championship clubs as well as giving the lads something competitive to focus on as the season comes to a close.

Bedford Blues were unfortunate to lose their final away game of the season on Saturday, a 25-19 defeat at Castle Park against Doncaster Knights, writes Ryan Lewis of Bedford Times & Citizen.

The Blues matched their hosts in the try count, with both sides scoring three apiece but two Dougie Flockhart penalties were the difference between two teams that have been leapfrogging each other in the standings throughout the season.
