Bedford Blues are thrilled to announce that Wasps duo Piers O'Conor and Alex Lundberg will both be available to the Goldington Road club for the 2016/17 Greene King IPA Championship season.

Following a hugely successful campaign, 21-year-old prop Lundberg and 20-year-old fullback O'Conor will be back with the Blues once more for the coming season.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce the launch of a new Community Rugby Department which will deliver a range of sports projects and supply quality coaching to schools and organisations in the local area.

The department - which will be headed by a newly appointed Head of Community - has been established following close work between the Bedford Blues Board, Director of Rugby Mike Rayer and former player Matt Price who runs an organisation called Sports in Schools.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce that centre Tom Griffiths and back rower Joel Conlon will both once again be heading to Goldington Road for the 2016/17 Greene King IPA Championship season.

Griffiths, 21, was a shining light in the Blues squad which reached the Championship semi-final and was named runner-up to Josh Buggea in the Player’s Player of the Season Award at the club dinner.

Conlon, 22, made a big impact on the field during his 14 appearances with the Blues last season and was always in the think of the action despite suffering two nasty injuries during the campaign.

After a great season on the pitch the Club have once again turned their attention to the summer ground improvement and refurbishment programme.

In 2015, following the additional RFU funding of £50,000 for the development of facilities, the Club spent over £70,000 in total to ensure both player and supporter experience met with the standards required, and this year we continue to build on that approach with a projected investment of £80,000.

The project has prioritised the following key improvements for this summer:
