The recent Cornish Pirates versus Doncaster Knights match was the last with Paul Cremin in the role of Head Physiotherapist.
Accepting a career advancement opportunity, Paul is joining London Irish where he will take on a Senior First Team Physiotherapist role.
Irishman Paul, who joined the Cornish Pirates in 2016 following the departure of Felicity ‘Fliss’ Middleton, has commented:
After boarding the Pirates ship during an exciting time for the club, when Gav (Gavin Cattle) and Paves (Alan Paver) took on the head coaching roles, I have thoroughly enjoyed my two seasons at the Mennaye,
It was an absolute pleasure to work with two great and forward thinking young coaches, who have really advanced the standards and professionalism of the club. Also, it has been massively satisfying and rewarding to work with such a talented and hard-working squad and support staff, and to get to know some of the many great Pirates supporters.
I do believe the strength of the Pirates is their unique camaraderie, culture and values, and credit must go to Gav and Paves and the current playing squad for creating and driving this during my time here.
I am departing with nothing but fond memories of my time in Cornwall, where for the benefit of the county it’s hoped that the planned stadium will soon be built.
A further two Cornish-bred players have re-signed for the Cornish Pirates.
Confirming their latest new signing for next season, the Cornish Pirates have announced that fly-half/centre/full-back Javier Rojas Alvarez has put pen to paper on a one-year contract.
Further good news from the Cornish Pirates confirms that prop forward Tyler Gendall is to return to the club. Aged 23, he has signed a one-year contract for the 2018/19 season.
