Bedford Blues are delighted to announce two further signings ahead of the 2016/17 Greene King IPA Championship season.

Heading to Goldington Road will be back rower Jason Hill who joins from Glasgow Warriors while fullback Elliot Clements-Hill is make the short journey from Ampthill.

Hill, who stands 6ft 4ins tall and weighs 108kg, joined Glasgow Warriors on a partnership contract for season 2015/2016. The 26-year-old played for the Scotland Club XV in 2015, scoring a try and being named man of the match in a 23-18 victory over the Ireland Club XV.

In the end, it just wasn't to be as Bristol put in another big performance to ensure that it was them and not Bedford Blues who will be in the Greene King IPA Championship Final against Doncaster Knights.

The Blues certainly gave their all, as they have throughout the season, but the host team proved too strong as they ran in six tries to Bedford's three which were courtesy of a Penalty try, Dean Adamson and Paul Tupai.

Bedford Blues head into Sunday’s Greene King IPA Championship play-off second leg knowing that they will have to put in a performance of Leicester City proportions to have any chance of reaching the final this season.

On Sunday, the Blues were well beaten 16-45 at Goldington Road by a clinical Bristol who ran in six tries to give themselves a 29 point cushion ahead of the second leg. But with no pressure on the Blues at all, the message from the coaches is simple - Go out there, express yourselves and do what Bedford do best.
