Many of you will have seen (and hopefully purchased an item or two) from our merchandising stand at Redruth on Saturday (7 May 2016).
Many thanks must go to our hard-working volunteers especially Chairman Phil and his good lady Marina for running the stand and placing the stock orders to keep the Army lookin’ proper!
We take pride in the fact that all our profits are ploughed back into the game locally, an example of this took place at half-time on Saturday when we were delighted to present members of this season’s Cornwall Under 20s a small contribution towards their considerable travelling costs to trial and training games for the South West this season.
Ben Stean, Adam Hughes, Jack Simmons, Tommy-Lee Southworth and Dan Rutter were all involved with training at Keynsham with Tommy- Lee and Dan going on to represent the South West against London and the South East at Maidenhead.
Tommy Phillips, our Cornwall U20 player of the year last season, despite being injured over the trials period, has earned selection for the England Counties Under 20 training squad, which will tour Russia in June. Tommy played on the inaugural tour for England Counties Under 20s last season, along with Todd Prisk, when they toured Hungary.
On Saturday we were delighted to make a presentation to the players and wish them all the best for their careers in rugby.
