TASC commits to supporting Penryn Tag festival in 2016

From Chairman Phil Trevarton

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.
