The Clayton Rugby Football Club has released their Fall 2014 schedule. The schedule consists of eight matches against squads from all across the State of North Carolina. As a brand new club, the schedule should prove to be challenging as it is heavy on road games. The club is in the process of having goal posts made and installed at East Clayton Community Park, but doesn’t expect them to be finished before the end of the Fall season. The club expects to play a more balanced home/away schedule in future seasons.
The team has progressed nicely over the course of the Summer and showed promise during the 7s Tournament season. The Fall schedule will allow the club to continue their progress and the challenging schedule gives the club a gauge of how they stand in relation to similar level competition in North Carolina.
The Clayton RFC opens up their Fall 2014 season this coming weekend as they take on Southern Pines. Match results and reports will be found here and on our Facebook page.
All matches are free and open to the public. Fans are encouraged to come out and cheer on the Bootleggers.
