Bedford Blues have announced that two more members of the current squad have put pen to paper on new deals to remain at the club for the coming campaign.
Agreeing new deals for the 2019/20 Championship season are USA international fly half Will Hooley and 24 year old hooker Jacob Fields.
Cambridge born Hooley, 25, is a former England Under 20 international who came through the Academy system at Northampton Saints before going on to make 14 first team appearances and scoring 77 points.
It was this, along with a successful dual-registration with Birmingham Moseley, that attracted the Exeter Chiefs and Hooley was brought in to provide top quality competition for the No.10 role alongside Gareth Steenson and Henry Slade. He made his debut for the Chiefs against Clermont Auvergne in the 2015 Champions Cup and most recently featured in the Chiefs 36-14 Premiership win over Newcastle Falcons.
Fields, 24, has been a true warrior for Bedford Blues ever since he joined the club at the end of the 2015/16 Championship season.
While the former Loughborough Student was all set to arrive at Goldington Road at the start of the 2016/17 campaign, Fields - who came through the Bath Academy - joined Bedford early due to an injury crisis and emerged himself into squad from the get go.
