CLACTON Rugby Club will start next season with a home match against Harlow.

The Seasiders are preparing for the challenge of London League division three north-east rugby, having just gained promotion from the Essex League.

It is the highest level they have competed at.

And they found out this week that they will start with a home match against Harlow, on September 13.

After that comes a trip to Old Brentwoods, on September 20, before returning to Vista Road against Sudbury.
