Boston Rugby Club are counting down to their first pre-season friendly.

The Blue and Whites are looking for their third consecutive promotion this season.

But first up, Willem Jonker’s men will host Peterborough at the Princess Royal Sports Arena on August 10.

This will be followed by another fixture at the Boardsides on August 15, when Spalding are the visitors.

Boston are currently midway through their pre-season training, with as many as 35 players reporting for duty.

There has been a mixture of familiar faces and newcomers trying to impress.

Anyone interested in trying out can turn up on Tuesday and Thursday nights (7-9pm).

The Blue and Whites’ competitive action begins on September 7 with an Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire Plate match at Amber Valley.
