TRELAWNY’S ARMY ANNOUNCE PLAYER OF THE YEAR AWARDS
Trelawny’s Army members have voted Cornwall captain Jake Murphy as their 2018 Cornwall Player of the Year.
Centre Murphy played in all of Cornwall’s senior fixtures last season captaining the side in what proved to be a turbulent Bill Beaumont Cup campaign.
Murphy who is still playing his club rugby at Barnstaple this season, having previously played for many seasons at Launceston, will be presented with the Bill Osborne Memorial Shield at the club’s A.G.M. at St. Austell Brewery on Wednesday 26th September.
The award for the Cornwall Under 20 Player of the Year went to Launceston’s No.8 Torin Clarke who led the Cornwall Under 20s to the Jason Leonard Cup final at Twickenham last season were they lost the final to Yorkshire.
Clarke was also unlucky to suffer an injury during the trials for an England Counties Under 20 berth for the summer’s tour in June.
Clarke, who came through the youth system at St. Austell RFC, will be presented with the Tony Mead Memorial Shield the same evening.
Congratulations to both our winners.
The meeting is open to all members and commences at 7:45 pm. Pasties will be available.
