Free for all clubs to be involved, upon doing so, the partnership will offer a host of opportunities including:

  • Free Coach Education sessions, led by Cornish Pirates senior coaches Ian Davies & Gavin Cattle

  • Use of the Cornish Pirates Partner Club logo

  • Coaching sessions led by Cornish Pirates community development coaches

  • Website & social media support through Facebook & Twitter

  • Partner Pirate visits up to 4 times through the season.

As part of this exciting opportunity, each Partner Club Linked with a specific member of the Cornish Pirates squad as their 'Partner Pirate' for the 13/14 season.

As part of this, each club will be invited to access their Partner Pirate up to 4 times during the season.

Falmouth RFC

Falmouth RFCFalmouth RFC is one of the oldest rugby clubs in Cornwall dating back to 1873. It is situated in the heart of the community of Falmouth and is a Green Space in the middle of housing and roads.

It is so important to the community that three years ago 5000 inhabitants signed a petition to `Save the Recreation Ground` to stop the local council from building` Low Cost Housing` on the site of the rugby club.

As a result Falmouth RFC has negotiated a new 40 year Lease with Cornwall Council and our tenure at the Recreation Ground is now secure. The club can now plan for the future.

Newquay Hornets RFC

Newquay Hornets RFCNewquay Hornets RFC obtained the RFU Seal of Approval some 6 years ago and last season obtained the award of "RFU Accreditation" this has been applied to all three sections of the club and has just been re-awarded for this season.

Newquay Hornets RFC stands as one of the biggest and most successful clubs in Cornwall with a membership of over 550 of which we have 357 playing members.

The club has players in every age group from U6s right up through all Mini/Junior (Youth) age groups, including Colts, Girls and Seniors, we have recently registered our first ever Senior Ladies section and hope to see this grow this season.

The club judges its success on the retention of players and on the number of players we have assisted onto the "Player Pathway".

Many of our youth players play within Cornwall's County Pathway and some have progressed into Regional Accadamies, in the girls section we have had outstanding succes having produced 3 England U20s players.

The Club's Mission statement is that "We offer fun and fitness to One and All through the sport of Rugby" and we would like to encourage players of all abilites and ages to come along and give Rugby a go.
