Boston Rugby Club will report back for pre-season training tomorrow (Thursday) - looking to make it a third year of celebration.

After back-to-back promotions, Willem Jonker is looking to drill his squad hard to get them in best possible shape for life in the Midlands 3 North (East) division.

Next season’s fixtures will see the Blue and Whites in plenty of derby action.

Yellowbelly rivals Lincoln, Sleaford, Grimsby and Skegness, who were also promoted, will all provide opposition throughout the 2013-14 campaign.

Boston have been drawn away to Amber Valley in the first round of the NLD Plate competition on September 7.

This will be followed by their league fixtures.

The Blue and Whites will train every Tuesday and Thursday (7-9pm) at the Boardsides, with new players welcome.
