The Boston Buccaneers’ home match against Northampton Demons has been cancelled.

The Buccs were meant to make their home Rugby League debut at the Boardsides on Saturday.

However, opponents Northampton have withdrawn from the league.

Buccaneers staff attempted to slot a friendly fixture in this weekend, but with such short notice no teams were able to commit.

This is a third Merit League setback for Boston, whose originbal two league matches against Derby City were both postponed.

However, the away contest against Derby did go ahead last month, with the newly-formed Boston team winning 48-14 on the road.
