Peter Cloke R.I.P. Funeral details now confirmed

It is with deepest regret that TASC has learned of the passing of club member Peter Cloke.

Peter was a fervent Cornwall supporter and a regular traveller on Trelawny’s Army trips. He played for St. Austell RFC and was a keen supporter of the Cornish All Blacks. His presence at games over the last few years was cut short by ill health, but many of us remember his kind and pleasant comradeship wherever he went.

Funeral arrangements, Peter’s Funeral will be held on 14th August at 11.30am. Glynn Valley Crematorium, Bodmin. Sarah has requested that :- Family flowers only but donations in lieu to Cornwall Arthritis Trust and FLEET. Cornish Tartan attire is welcome. Everyone is welcome to join us afterwards at St. Austell Rugby Club for refreshments.

Should also note that we will be signing Trelawny during the service so would like some rousing voices! Perhaps a sing song at the rugby club after to if possible!

We send our deepest condolences to Sarah his daughter and her family.

Trelawny’s Army mourns passing of our friend Ewart White – Funeral details

Cornwall RFU Honorary Team Secretary Ewart White hold the Bill Beaumont Cup. – Mandatory Credit ©Simon Bryant/©Iktis Photo – Photo mandatory by-line: 31/05/15 – Cornwall, County Championship, Bill Beaumont Cup, Final, Lancashire, CRFU, LRFU, Twickenham Stadium, London Rugby Union, England,

Everybody connected with Trelawny’s Army are saddened to learn of the passing of our great friend and valued committee member Ewart White who sadly passed away yesterday following a short illness.

Ewart was rightly regarded as a stalwart of Cornish rugby, he was county team secretary for over twenty years, also a valued team secretary at Camborne RFC for even longer.

He, with others, helped enormously foster links between TASC and the Cornwall RFU, calling us “Cornwall’s 16th man”.

Ewart’s phone was at times the red-hottest in Cornwall as he phoned players to tell them they had been selected to play rugby for Cornwall. What a joy that must have been to both parties.

The high esteem that he was held in by the players he came to know is illustrated by the many comments on social media over the past few hours expressing their sadness but also huge respect they held for him as a man and friend.

His words of encouragement to young players playing for Cornwall were ones that were never forgotten. He looked after “his boys”.

Ewart was a gentleman, a Camborne man and a Cornishman. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Trelawny’s Army wishes to express it’s deepest and most sincerest condolences to Margaret and the rest of the family at this sad time.


Please be advised Ewart’s funeral will take place on Friday 29th June at 11 am at Camborne Wesley Church, Chapel Street, TR14 8EG.

Afterwards at the Town Bar, Camborne RFC

25 Years of TASC Celebrated at Rose-in-Vale


Members and guests of the Trelawny’s Army Supporters Club recently held their “Silver Jubilee” Dinner at the Rose-in-Vale Country Hotel in Mithian, St. Agnes. The evening proved to be a great success with entertainment provided post dinner by the Cadgwith Singers.

There was a special 25th Anniversary Cake baked and decorated by Shirley Floyd.

Hon. Sec Ian Gordon was Master of Ceremonies for the evening. Prior to dinner Neil Plummer said the Cornish Grace and the loyal toast was proposed by special guest for the evening Roger Watson Hon.Sec of the Cornwall RFU, and a founder member of TASC.

John Rowe, who along with Marjorie, organised the splendid evening proposed the toast to Trelawny’s Army. This was followed by the singing of “Trelawny” by club Chairman Phil Trevarton.

Roger Watson spoke of the early days of the “Army”, which was founded in 1993 with him as the first Hon.Sec, following an idea by Dave Saunby of Falmouth, who was the time the base drummer with the Falmouth Marine Band.

As an organisation we had to struggle to get recognition from the Cornwall RFU, but slowly, with great patience, we managed to forge links and build a partnership that sees both working closely for the benefit of rugby union in Cornwall.

Roger also spoke of the early trips the Army made to support the Cornwall team, notably to the Netherlands in 1993 and then to Ireland the following year. These proved to be a great success and forged a bond with the players that continues to this day.

The support that members of TASC give to the Cornwall side at a game is a huge physiological boost to the players whether at home or on a long away trip up in England!

At the conclusion of Roger’s address, Ian presented both Roger and club President John Treglown with commemorative plaques to mark TASC’s 25 years.

Phil presented to bouquets of flowers to Nikki Watson and Julia Treglown. Bouquets were also presented to committee members Marina Trevarton and Viv Broadhurst.

The presentations concluded with John Treglown presenting the TASC Indoor Bowls Shields to Harry Head (Juniors), Marina Trevarton (Ladies) and Barry Perriman (Mens).

Neil Plummer then led the singing of “Hail to the Homeland”.

John Rowe then introduced the Cadgwith Singers as members and guest retired to the bar.
