The Latest Cornish Pirates Re-signs

Further good news from the Cornish Pirates confirms that Tom Cowan-Dickie and Alexander ‘AJ’ Cant are the latest two squad members committing their immediate future to the club.

Cornishman Tom, who is in a second spell with the club since joining from Plymouth Albion last year, has signed a two-year contract. Aged 26, he has made 17 appearances for the Pirates this season, which would have been more but for injury. However, when fit he has undoubtedly proven one of the stand-out hookers both in the Championship and in the Cup, and in the process has also scored seven tries.

As for wing AJ, who is aged just 18, this Cornish-born wing has signed a one-year contract. Besides making three appearances for the Pirates this season, he served an apprenticeship at Exeter Chiefs and to aid his development has also enjoyed regular game time at Redruth.

The Cornish Pirates coaching duo, comprising Alan Paver and Gavin Cattle, are once again delighted with this latest player news. Alan has commented:

We are extremely pleased to re-sign Tom. He has not only been a massive contributor on the field since joining us from Albion but has also proved a very mature young leader off the field as well.

Also speaking highly of AJ, Alan said:

AJ is an exciting young prospect who Gavin has eyed for a long time. Enjoying important game time at Redruth, in a good side he has done well to hold down one of the wing positions and has certainly shown all the right spirits and values that we look for in a player. With the right tutelage he could be a big part of what we are aiming for in the future.
