LATEST: Blues Academy 29pts:  London Scottish Academy 21pts:  Match Report to follow.

 

After a tough game against Leinster last week, the Blues Academy continue their pre-season preparations on Saturday when they welcome the London Scottish Academy to Goldington Road (Kick Off 1.30 pm).

Making their debut for the Blues in the pack are youngsters Charlie Clarke (Ampthill) and Ben Thompson and Callum Strachan (both Bedford Junior Blues).

It is with great pleasure that Bedford Blues can announce that the 2014/15 Championship season will be a Testimonial one for fullback James Pritchard.

The coming campaign will be Pritch's 11th at Goldington Road and the year ahead holds some very special events to commemorate his loyalty to Bedford Blues.

James has been a mainstay of Bedford Blues and exemplifies everything that is good about the club, the town and rugby as a whole.

Blues Academy centre, Nico Defeo, on tour in Ireland with the Italy U20 squad, has played in the first three games of their four match tour.  The Italians have won one game, drawn one, and lost one; beating Munster U20, by 19pts – 3, losing to Connacht, by  22pts – 12, and drawing with Ulster, 12 pts all.     

 

The Italian U20 side face Leinster U20 this Saturday (August 23rd) in Dublin in the final game of their four match tour of Ireland.  The Italian U20 Head Coach, Allessandro Troncon, who has more than 100 caps for Italy, announces his squad later today.

 

Bedford Blues have named a 28 man squad to face Ealing Trailfinders on Saturday afternoon with debuts for a host of new players.
 
England Under 20 star and Junior World Championship winner Nathan Earle is named on the wing while Billy Moss starts at loosehead prop, Jared Saunders takes his place at hooker and Eoin Sheriff comes into the second row. Nick Fenton-Wells captains the team from Number 8.
 

Bedford Blues would like to wish Colin Barnes – the chairman of Lifesure Group – a very happy 80th birthday.
 
Colin has been a long-time fan of the Blues and his company have been extremely proud sponsors of the club for the past nine years providing much needed support which has been greatly appreciated by everyone at the club.  Colin and his wife Elizabeth will be celebrating his landmark birthday at their home on the Isle of Man but everyone at Goldington Road wishes him a very happy birthday and we look forward to seeing you soon.
 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY COLIN! COYB!!!
