Jim Wigglesworth may be in awe of James Pritchard’s legacy at Bedford Blues but he is intent on making sure the legendary full-back is not a sure-fire starter upon his return to the club.

Pritchard is the Blues’ all-time leading point scorer and at 35 is still going strong for both club and country, as part of Canada’s squad for this year’s autumn internationals.

And though losing their evergreen No.15 is a blow the Blues could do without, one person making the most of his absence is new signing Wigglesworth.

The Blues Academy return to Goldington Road this weekend when they welcome the Irish Exiles U19 squad, on Sunday November 23rd, KO 2pm.

After a good win last week, away to the Cambridge University U21 XV, Bedford again rotate their squad with four players returning to the side from injury, and also make a number of positional changes,

Bedford Blues welcomed Junior Reporters Gregory Hicks and Amie Gray to Goldington Road on Friday night to take in all of the action from the game against Yorkshire Carnegie and then pose some challenging questions to Phil Boulton and Jake Sharp – Enjoy!

As the evening sky fell over Goldington Road on Friday the 14th, the crowds gathered to watch Bedford Blues take on Yorkshire Carnegie. 

An exhilarating first ten minutes unfortunately saw Blues captain Nick Fenton-Wells coming off with injury and being replaced by Josh Buggea. Alarmingly, David Doherty scored his first try of the season for the opposing team, making the score 0-7 after Harry Leonard converted. 

It was a case of Friday night delights for Bedford Blues as they rediscovered winning ways with a 15-10 victory over Yorkshire Carnegie.

Tries from Darryl Veenendaal and Jim Wigglesworth helped the Blues to victory, but a lot of credit has to go to the forwards who gave their backs a great platform on which to work.

The Blues Academy gained a narrow win over Cambridge University U21 XV, at Grange Road on Saturday.  Drawing at 12 pts all at half time, the Blues scored two further tries in second half to win by 26pts – 12.
