Hooker Charlie Clare is looking forward to a fresh and exciting start in Bedfordshire in 2018.
The former Leicester Tigers forward has moved back to play for the Bedford Blues having spent three years at Goldington Road before a move to Northampton Saints in 2016.
He is also looking forward to “getting stuck in” helping the county’s youngsters pick up a ball and have some fun as an ambassador for didi rugby.
“I’m so excited to get involved with didi rugby,” said Charlie.
“didi gives young children the chance to learn not only physical skills and get them active, but they also get the opportunity to learn about the values of the game and that is important too.
“I can’t wait to get down and do my part in educating the next generation.”
Charlie will be working closely with owners Ben and Georgie Gulliver to spread didi rugby Bedfordshire far and wide – and will also be helping the Blues in their quest for Championship glory.
“I am delighted to be returning to Bedford and feel very privileged to have been asked back,” Charlie told the club’s website. “Bedford is a proper rugby club. The supporters, the current players and coaches are who I want to be with.”
