The Blues Academy pre-season training is in full swing.  The Academy players started pre-season training at the beginning of July and have been working hard since then. 

Blues Academy Director, Denis Ormesher, said: “Last year was another successful season, with some fine wins, but as always with rugby it is all start again this season."

"We have about 12 of last year's squad returning this season, and we have some good youngsters who have been with on trial this summer.  Our focus over the past few weeks has been on core skills, fitness, and assessing the new players.  The lads have worked incredibly hard over the last six weeks, and are beginning to get to come together as a squad."

"We have an internal trial game on Saturday, and will watch the Blues pre-season games against Ampthill and OAs afterwards.  It will be good to see so many ex-Blues Academy players in the Ampthill and OAs squads.  We then play London Scottish at Goldington Road the week after - on Saturday August 22nd, KO 2.00 pm." 

“We are interested in hearing from new players, in all positions, who think they have the potential, and who want to join the Blues Academy.”
