Trelawny’s Army was once again at Penryn RFC to provide two match balls for each Club entered at the Under 7 & 8’s County Festival on the 26th April.
Our sponsorship of this event has now been running for three years, and we will sponsor the tournament again next year. It is truly a marvel to behold so many young rugby players enjoying their sport and a worthy event for us to be involved in.
I was also pleased to see some ex-County Players involved in passing their skills onto their charges, well done to you, the future of Cornish Rugby is in your hands.
A big thank-you to all at Penryn RFC for allowing us to attend with our Trade stand and we’ll see you next year.

TASC was invited to attend the 2015 Festival with the trade-stand, but was unable to participate owing to work commitments, however TASC members Phil & Marina Trevarton met with Tony Payton and Darryl Cook to present and donate training balls for the 2015 tournament.
As a result Trelawny’s Army Supporters Club is proud to announce that it will provide the match-balls for the 2016 Tournament.
This extension to our sponsorship activity is aimed at assisting youth development by providing new rugby balls for Clubs involved in nurturing foundation rugby skills and is in addition to our sponsorship to Penryn’s U7 & U8 Tag Festival.

Sunday 10th May – Next weekend, Cornwall RFU Mens team will have their second County Championship game away to Kent at Gravesend RFC.
One important point of note is the post code for satnav users. The Gravesend club official post code will direct fans to the wrong place! We strongly recommend the code to use, especially by the bus drivers is DA12 2PP.
Many of the drivers ignore this and get lost as there are a number of places the other one can lead to.
That said, We hope everyone makes it safely to the ground next weekend and very much look forward to a sea of Trelawny’s Army and our black and gold at the ground.
Trelawny’s Army Dinner & Dance 2015 – Report & Photos by Chairman Phil Trevarton
I am pleased to report that our Annual Dinner & Dance was a great success this year, although tinged with a little sadness with the news of the passing of Member No. 1 – Richard Major who was a regular supporter of the event.
Once again the Ponsmere Hotel at Perranporth served us a hearty three-course meal and was greatly enjoyed by the 30 members present. The Club is once again in debt to Carol Seymour for her organisation and her delicate touch in decorating the tables.
Our chosen guest this year was our first web-master John Prowse, accompanied by wife Marion. John spoke of how he met Trelawny’s Army members at away games and offered his services to set up a web-site for the Club whilst living on the Isle of Wight. It is true to say that we were one of the first rugby web-site in the Country and at one stage rated in the top ten rugby sites nationally. John thanked in particular Bill Hooper and the late Tom Prout for supplying material for the site and maintaining its vibrancy. John, after running the site for some 20 years felt it was time for a fresh insight and is truly pleased in the format that new web-master Phil Richards has introduced to the site.

A number of presentations were made at the evening; firstly a pair of Cornish cuff-links was presented to John Prowse and a bouquet to wife Marion. Ed Head was presented with the Men’s’ Bowling Trophy, whilst partner Jenny Walker was presented with the Ladies Bowling Trophy. The final presentations were firstly to Trixie Gordon for her many years of service to the Club and finally Ian Gordon was presented with a pair of Pasty Cufflinks from Club Chairman Phil Trevarton for his personal support over the years.
This concluded the formal proceedings of the evening, and the assembled members retired to the bar where our chosen entertainment for the evening commenced.

We were entertained this year by the Cadgwith Singers who serenaded us into the late hours with popular local songs and enjoyed by all members present.
A great time was had by all and we now look forward to the remainder of the rugby season and the commencement of the Bill Beaumont County Championship and the progress of the County U.20 team in the later stages of their competition.
TASC members were at Ivybridge on Sunday to support Cornwall Under 20s against Devon. Sadly Cornwall couldn’t get the win they needed to ensure a home quarter-final as Devon won with the last kick of an enthralling game 31-29. Cornwall must now travel to face Kent on Sunday 15th February. Following the game a presentation was made to County Coach Mike Rawlings and Team Secretary Chris Lea.
