The Club is very sad to announce that former player and captain, David Perry, has passed away at the age of 79.
David, a talismanic No.8, made 101 appearances for Bedford between 1962-66 and was captain in 1962-63 and 1965-66. He scored 115 points for the town, including 37 tries and two conversions.
Winning a Cambridge Blue in 1958, Perry went on to join Bedford from Harlequins before gaining 15 England International caps between 1963-66. He made 13 appearances at No.8 and two in the second row for his country as well as captaining England in all four games in the Five Nations Championship in 1965.
