Buxton RUFC chief Karl de Groot has called for more people to flood to Sunnyfields to watch his side.

The director of rugby believes there is some exciting rugby on display and says the group of players at the club have a bright future.

He is now asking for more fans to turn out and watch the club.

“What I am surprised at, is that we don’t get more people watching us.

“Aside from the big day earlier in the season against Rugby and our Presidents’ day this weekend, we fail to really generate any sort of crowd.

“There must be rugby fans in the town and we are playing some exciting stuff, so it would be great to see some more folks up watching on a weekly basis.

“We are well positioned for next season.”
