Bedford Blues are delighted to announce five new players who are joining the Blues Academy Development Squad for the 2017/18 season.

They have trained all the summer pre-season with the Blues first team squad, with their Strength & Conditioning programmes being overseen by Sean Vine, the Blues S&C coach.  If they are not playing for the Blues, they will play with a partner club in the National Leagues where they will have the opportunity to develop by playing regular league rugby. 

The opening home match of the new Greene King IPA Championship season is only 10 days away as Bedford Blues welcome London Scottish to Goldington Road in our family fun day on Saturday 9th September (Kick Off 3pm). Save £4 and book tickets online here.

Following an impressive pre-season campaign Mike Rayer’s men are champing at the bit for league action in what promises to be an exciting campaign with a first look at some of the new faces in competitive rugby against a Scottish outfit featuring four former Blues players.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce that Northampton Saints second rower Jordan Onojaife, has joined the club once again for the coming season.

Standing at 196cm and weighing in at 118kg, Onojaife, 22,  initially joined Bedford on loan for the second half of last season's Championship campaign and made a lasting impression with players, coaches and fans alike.

Bedford completed their pre-season fixtures with a hard fought victory over a dogged Blackheath side who certainly weren't going to let the Blues have everything their own any.

Bedford took a two try lead early on, but the hosts fired back with three good scores to lead at the break. But Blackheath could do little to prevent the Blues second half juggernaut which crossed the line four times without reply.

Good luck this weekend to the Blues Academy Development Squad players who are in action for the Blues and for their partner clubs.

Second row Ben Kelland and winger Ryan Hutler both start for the Blues in the final pre-season warm-up game away at Blackheath.

Full back Joe Green and flanker Joe Britton both start for Cambridge away vs Bishop's Stortford, whilst centre Matt Riddington starts at 12 for Bishop's Stortford against them.

Meanwhile, 12,000 miles away, Dan Lewis is starting at 10 for North Otago away to Horowhenua-Kapiti in first round of Heartlands Mitre Championship.
