Ahead of the Greene King IPA Championship play-off semi-final, Bedford Blues have confirmed that club captain Nick Fenton-Wells has agreed a deal to sign for opponents Bristol.
As a consequence of this decision, the club has stated that it feels that it is in the best interest of all parties that Fenton-Wells does not play any part in the playoff games and he will therefore not be available for selection.
Bedford Blues chairman Geoff Irvine said: “I appreciate that supporters will feel very disappointed but the club has been put in a compromising position due to Nick’s decision.
“As such, we feel that this is the correct course of action to take given the circumstances.”
Tickets for the semi-final clash on Sunday are on sale now via the club website www.bedfordrugby.co.uk – or you can buy them at the club between 9am and 6pm until Friday.
A special two-course hospitality meal will be available in the Blues Marquee pre-match for £15 per person.
