Bedford Blues have started to put the finishing touches to their squad for the 2017/18 Championship campaign by signing two more backs in Jersey Reds' Richard Lane and London Scottish's Harry Sheppard.
 
It will certainly be something of a homecoming for 23-year-old Lane who was born in the town and grew up playing for the junior Blues before going to Millfield School where he captained the under 16s Sevens team that won the Rosslyn Park National Schools title and the All England Sevens.
 

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce the signing of former England Saxons hooker Tom Lindsay for the 2017/18 Championship campaign.

Lindsay, 29, has joined the Goldington Road club following a short spell with Saracens during which time he impressed in a Blues jersey during the Mobbs Memorial game in March.

Having come through the Academy at Saracens, Lindsay went on to make 129 appearances for rivals Wasps and it was during this time that he was selected to represent England Saxons in the 2010 Churchill Cup. Tom moved to Gloucester in 2015 and has gone on to gain Championship experience having played briefly for London Scottish this year.

Bedford Blues fans came out in their hundreds on Saturday afternoon to say a final farewell to stalwart Mike Howard who signed off his tenure at the club with a high scoring testimonial encounter.

Blues past and present put on a fine display of running rugby which saw 150 points being scored in total with the final score being Bedford 70, Mike Howard’s Legends 80.

There were only a couple of minutes on the clock when Bedford opened the scoring thanks to a Ryan Hutler effort which was converted calmly with a drop kick by Camilo Parilli-Ocampo. Something he would repeat twice more during the afternoon.

There will be a host of Bedford Blues legends on display at Goldington Road on Saturday as the club bids a fond farewell to long-serving lock Mike Howard.

Howard, 31, has been a mainstay of the second row since joining from North Walsham after a successful trial in 2008 and he has played a huge role in the Blues' successes ever since.
