Bedford Blues started their Championship campaign with a 19-10 defeat away at Nottingham on Friday night. A debut try in the first half from Tom Williams wasn’t enough for victory as the boot of Will Maisey kicked 14 points for Nottingham. However the first half was overshadowed by a horrific injury to Nathan Earle, with the 19-year-old winger having to be stretchered off with a suspected snapped Achilles.

James Pritchard kicked off for the Blues at Meadow Lane, with both teams looking to gain territory early on via a kicking game. Nottingham though won that battle early on and laid down a marker for how most of the match was to be contested.

At the Greene King IPA Championship launch on Wednesday afternoon, new Bedford Blues skipper Nick Fenton-Wells shared his view on last season and insists that his side can regain their top four status this season and push for promotion to the Premiership.

Congratulations to ex-Blues Academy captain, Tom Williams, who makes his Blues senior debut at loose head prop tomorrow in the Blues first Championship league game of the season, away to Nottingham.

Tom captained the Blues Academy in the 2006/07 season leading them to victory in the 2007 National Colts Cup Final at Franklin’s Gardens, when they beat Redruth by 30pts – 5.  This was the first Blues National Colts Cup win; the first of a run of five wins in six years, before the Blues withdrew from the tournament after winning it in for the fifth time in May 2012.
