Buxton RUFC fell to a 26-9 defeat at home to Ellesmere Port last weekend.

The result means Buxton are consigned to a mid-table finish in South Lancashire/Cheshire Division Three.

They currently sit sixth and have just five games remaining, plus the eagerly-awaited NLD Plate Final (the date is yet to be announced).

Buxton’s next league game is away to basement side Helsby on Saturday March 22.
