Bedford Blues have completed their ninth pre-season signing with the acquisition of Barking wing Dave Vincent.

The 21-year-old, who is about to finish his final year at Loughborough University, notched 19 tries for the National One side last season.

Blues director of rugby Mike Rayer said: "David was one of the stand out players in National One last season.

"And I am delighted that he has joined us at Goldington Road."

He added: "He joins with a great reputation for being a finisher and I believe he will add a lot of competition for the likes of Ollie Dodge, Handre Schmidt, Josh Bassett and Mark Kohler out on the wings."

Rayer has already added Kohler, Jamie Lennard, Neil Cochrane, Jonathon Fisher, Nico Steenkamp, Henry Staff, Don Barrell and Stefan Liebenberg to his squad for next season.

The Blues get their Championship campaign underway at Nottingham on 3 September, with their first home fixture against London Welsh a fortnight later.
