For the first time in many a long year Falmouth got the better of their near neighbours Penryn in the annual Boxing Day encounter played this year on Penryn’s Memorial Ground. It was 10-5 to the Black & White’s, with the visitors holding out the home side in the closing stages to earn that long awaited win.
Camborne defeated Redruth by 7-6 at the Camborne Recreation Ground, in front of a crowd approaching four figures, although the Reds fielded a Development XV. Andrew Smith scored Town’s try, which was converted by young Josh Matavesi. Grant Thirlby kicked a couple of penalties for the Reds.
At St. Ives, the Hakes defeated Hayle 52-0.
