Bedford Blues have named their squad for the penultimate Greene King IPA Championship fixture against Ealing Trailfinders on Saturday afternoon.

Trips to Vallis Way are notoriously tough, particularly with the home side still chasing promotion, but the Blues arrive off the back of a hard fought victory over Richmond and with the added bonus of a win over the hosts earlier in the season.

Tries from Chris Czekaj and Dean Adamson as well as 13 points from the boot of Will Hooley helped secure a 23-18 victory at Goldington Road back in January, but Bedford are expecting a huge challenge as Trailfinders look to chase down London Irish.

Good things come in threes and it is the case once again for Bedford Blues as they confirm a trio of names for next season’s squad.

Fly half Sam Leeming will be swapping the red of Hartpury for the Blue of Bedford following four years at the Gillman’s Ground while backs Ed Coulson and Pat Tapley have both put pen to paper on new deals to remain at Goldington Road.

Speaking about the captures, Blues Director of Rugby Mike Rayer said: “We are really excited about the shape of the squad so far. Being able to welcome Sam as well as having Pat and Ed signed up is wonderful news.

Bedford Blues ran in six tries during an entertaining afternoon of rugby at Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon, but they still had to dig deep to beat Richmond 41-35.

Speaking about the new arrivals, Blues Director of Rugby Mike Rayer said: "The squad for next season is really starting to take shape and I'm thrilled to be able to welcome a mixture of experience and youth to the ranks.
