Bedford Blues have continued to add to their squad for the 2014/15 Greene King IPA Championship season by signing two new players as well as extending the stay of a front row favourite.
 
Tighthead prop Phil Boulton has signed a new 12 month contract at Goldington Road while the Blues also welcome back former centre Henry Staff from Rosslyn Park as well as clinching the signing of prop Camilo Parilli-Ocampo from Ealing Trailfinders.
 

Goldington Road was bathed in sunshine for the Blues final match of the season. Jersey were incredibly fired up as they would face relegation if they did not win, it was going to be a tough contest! The Visitors started the game with an early 3-15 lead thanks to tries by James Voss and Nick Griffiths, one successfully converted by Aaron Penberthy, also scoring the earlier penalty. Bedford are nothing if not determined, so after a few close attempts they came back with a brilliant try by Harry Wells, and a conversion by James Pritchard.

The Bedford Blues Academy said farewell and thank you to James Hinkins and Harriet Cole at the Academy End-of-Season dinner on Friday.  Hinks and Harriet are stepping down from the Academy at the end of the season.

The Blues Academy made their Annual Player Awards at their End-of-Season Dinner at Goldington Road on Friday April 25th.

Seen with Academy DIrector, Denis Ormesher, and Blues President Gareth Davies, who presented the awards, are fly half Cameron Gregory-Ring (Most Improved Player), hooker Josh Taylor (Player of the Year) and full back Scott Lyle (Young Player of the Year).  

Following the highs of last season, the current campaign has finished with the Blues tasting home defeat to Jersey who secured their own Championship status thanks to a bonus point 31-41 victory in front of 2659 fans.

It was certainly a back and forth encounter with the visitors streaking into a 3-15 lead thanks to a penalty and tries from James Voss (converted) and Nick Griffiths before a quick fire double from Harry Wells and Ollie Dodge gave Bedford the lead after James Pritchard added the extras to both. Aaron Penberthy – who kicked 21 points in total – added a penalty and then converted Drew Locke’s try to make it 17-25 at the break.
