Dave Spelman and Jacob Fields extend with Bedford Blues

Bedford Blues have increased their squad size for the 2017/18 Championship season up to 27 after two more members of the current crop put pen to paper on new deals.

Bolstering the front row options for next season will be prop Dave Spelman and hooker Jacob Fields.

Spelman, 23, suffered a frustrating first season at Goldington Road. Having featured in the matchday squad on a regular basis, he picked up an innocuous-looking knee injury in training at the tail-end of 2016 that ended up ruling him out for the rest of the season.

Also packing down with Spelman will be exciting hooker Fields, 23, who has continued his development while at Goldington Road. Having come through the Bath Academy, Fields moved on to Loughborough Students where he benefitted from the coaching of George Chuter while also completing a degree in Sports Science and Management. 

The re-signings move the Blues squad for 2017/18 up to 27 players as Dave and Jacob join Rich Lane (Jersey), Harry Sheppard (London Scottish), Tom Lindsay (Saracens), Will Hooley (Exeter Chiefs), Howard Packman (Northampton Saints), Chris Czekaj, Lee Dickson (Saints), George Edgson (Wasps), Sean McCarthy (Jersey), Alex Penny (Ealing Trailfinders), Alex Rae (Jersey) and Jarad Williams (Doncaster Knights) in signing for next season while Ben Adams, Dean Adamson, Justin Blanchet, Josh Buggea, Jordan Burns, Will Carrick-Smith, Elliot Clements-Hill, Ben Cooper, Ollie Dodge, Michael Le Bourgeois, Camilo Parilli-Ocampo, Ed Taylor and Paul Tupai have all signed new deals.
