Optimis sponsors Bedford Blues player Sam James

Optimis is delighted to be supporting Bedford Blues Rugby Club for another season.

The Blues are a rugby union club currently playing in The RFU Championship and based at the Goldington Road ground in our hometown of Bedford.

The Blues have a long standing history within the town. It was first formed in 1886 after an amalgamation between Bedford Rovers and Bedford Swifts and the club has been playing on virtually the same pitch for over 100 years.

The Blues are an integral part of the town with each home fixture normally drawing over 3000 supporters and many loyal fans becoming involved with the club some way or another over the season.

We are delighted to sponsor Sam James.  James, who has spent time on loan at Bishop’s Stortford, played for England at under-17 and under-18 levels, Hertfordshire at under-14 to under-16 levels and was a member of Saracens Elite Player Development Group. The 20 year old, who qualifies to play for Scotland through his maternal grandmother, made his international debut for Scotland under-20 against Ireland in Athlone in January 2014 and scored his first international points with a try against England at Netherdale the following week.

Optimis would like to take this opportunity to wish Sam and the team the best of luck for the forthcoming season.
