Buxton RUFC look to end away-day hoodoo

Buxton RUFC will be given an early chance to lay to rest their travel sickness from last season when they head to Linley and Kidsgrove on the opening day of the 2013/14 season.

Buxton, who were relegated from South Lancashire and Cheshire Division Two last term, lost all 12 outings away from Sunnyfields in 2012/13.

They now hope that the new season will bring with it a change of fortunes and head to Staffordshire to kick off the new campaign on Saturday, September 7.

Saturday, September 14 sees the first home fixture with the visit of Liverpool University.

The first game of 2014 sees Oxford Parkonians visit Derbyshire on Saturday, January 4.

The season concludes with the corresponding meeting with Linley and Kidsgrove, who visit Sunnyfields on Saturday, April 12.

The 14th team for next season’s league is yet to be confirmed.
