Skinners presentations

At our most recent committee meeting held at Skinner’s’ Brewery we completed two important presentations.

Firstly we presented a cheque to Betty Stogs for £100. This was for his current fund raising charity, Little Harbour Children’s Hospice SW. A cause that deserves all the support it can get.

We have been indebted to Fred Thomas (aka Betty) for his participation on our coach trips and we have benefited from his humour and generosity, so this donation to his chosen charity is in thanks to him.

Our second presentation was to Steve Skinner, Steve received a TASC rugby shirt with a personalized Skinner’s Logo on the back. Steve came to our rescue many years ago at Camborne RFC when he allowed us to set up our tradestand inside his beer tent in a deluge at a Cornwall game. Since then he has provided suitable liquid refreshment for our away trips on our coaches, so it is with our gratitude that we have presented him with one of our shirts.

Steve also receive a presentation bottle of gin from Ian Gordon in celebration of our Twickenham Trip 2017.

Message from Chairman Phil to the CRFU

Dear Roger,

I wish to convey my appreciation of this year’s County Championship to you and the players in this year’s Campaign.

The bitter taste of losing the final to a highly skilled and physical Lancashire must be so close to the player’s hearts that no words of mine can assuage their disappointment.

But, please be assured that the team that has taken us to Twickenham for the fifth consecutive time, defeating Surrey, Devon and Hertfordshire in such emphatic matches should never feel that they have in any way failed Trelawny’s Army and the assembled ranks of Cornish Rugby supporters. I hope in time that they should draw a sense of pride of what they have accomplished, namely reaching a Twickenham Final, a pinnacle that many rugby players will never accomplish.

The County Campaign games mounted by Cornwall are still the best supported matches that many of your players we see in their playing careers and are a testimony to the efforts made by CRFU Officers and the Players alike.

Trelawny’s Army are immensely proud of “Our Players”, who have worn the “Black & Gold” over the last four weeks and the only disappointment we will have is that we have to wait another year to wear our Black & Gold and fly the flags once again.

Please relay my heart felt appreciation to the Players and Officials alike and I wish you all the best until we can do this once again in 2018.

Phil Trevarton
