Bedford Blues preparations for the 2014/15 Greene King IPA Championship season have continued with the addition of two new faces to the Goldington Road club.

Back row forward Josh Buggea, 20, has signed on from Worcester Warriors and brings plenty of strength and enthusiasm to he pack.

Nuneaton-born Josh started playing rugby at 11 years old when he went to Bablake in Coventry - the school that helped to produce 1974 British & Irish Lion Geoff Evans and recent England fly half Shane Geraghty.

The 2014-15 British & Irish Cup structure and fixture dates have been unveiled today (Friday 13 June). Following discussion among all four Unions, four Principality Premiership teams will continue to represent Wales in the competition, joining the 12 clubs of the Greene King IPA Championship as well as four provincial teams from Ireland. Due to changes in the competition dates for the forthcoming season, the Scottish Rugby Union (SRU) has confirmed that Scottish clubs will not participate in the 2014-15 competition. As a result, this season's competition will move from 24 teams to 20, playing in five pools of four.

The funds raised by the Friends of the Blues make a huge difference to the Club. Around £25,000 is raised every year. If you are not a member, now is a great time to join. Membership is from £7 a month, to as much as you wish, and gives you chances in every home league draw and the special draws for special prizes. So far members have won over one hundred restaurant meals, weekends with the Blues in Paris, Jersey and Newcastle. Flights to European cities with Monarch Airlines and many other prizes including cash prizes up to £1,000.
