Congratulations to 18 year old Blues Academy centre, Nico Defeo, who has been invited to the Italian U20 training camp.

Defeo, who captained the Bedford Modern School 1st XV last year, has just completed his "A" levels at BMS, and joins the rest of the Italian U20 squad in a week long training camp in Pisa, Italy.

Blues Academy Director, Denis Ormesher, said ..." We are delighted for Nico.  He has been selected for the U20 camp a year early, and the experience training at this level will be good for him."  

The Blues Academy have announced their fixture list for the 2014/15 season, with what looks to be the strongest set of fixtures for some time.

They kick off the season with a tough opening game, on August 16th,  against the Irish province Leinster, who are preparing for the Irish Inter Provincial competition.  This is followed by a home game against London Scottish, and an away game against Esher U21 at the end of August.  September features four games including Leicester Tigers and a home game against the RAF U23 XV. 

The Blues Academy kicked off their pre-season training programme this week.
 

With over 40 players, 25 of them triallists, the Academy coaching team put them through their paces.
