Bedford Blues Rugby Club was this week sadly informed that former player and captain George Jenkins has passed away. George, who was 99 years and 6 months at the time of his death, was actually the Club's oldest former player and oldest captain.
Between 1946-53 George made 128 appearances in the back row, scoring 37 tries and was captain of the 1950-51 squad.
Hailing from Abercarn in Wales, flanker George never forgot his time at Bedford and the Club would like to extend our sincere sympathy to his family and friends. Once a Blue, always a Blue.
