The Boston Buccaneers will make the step up to the Midlands Rugby League Premier League for the 2015 season.

The 14-week season begins on May 2.

Other teams include the Birmingham Bulldogs, Buxton Bulls, Coventry Dragons, Derby City, Leamington Royals, Leicester Storm A, NEW Ravens, Northampton Demons, Nottingham Outlaws A, Sherwood Wolf Hunt, Telford Raiders.

The Buccs were formed last season, taking their bow in the Development League.

However, they impressed enough in their first foray into the development league to be moved up the region’s ladder system.

The Buccaneers play at the Boardsides.
