The Cornish Pirates can announce that their Watford-born lock Danny Cutmore, aged 24, is leaving the club to join Ealing Trailfinders.
Having arrived at the Cornish Pirates ahead of the 2018/19 campaign, in his four seasons he in total made 78 appearances as an all but ever present in the side.
Educated at Beaumont School, St. Albans, Danny represented Hertfordshire through the age groups and played for England under 17s. He became a Saracens Academy member, whilst he has also played for ‘Sarries’ both in the Anglo-Welsh Cup and the ‘A’ league. Also, during the 2017/18 season he spent time on loan at his boyhood club Old Albanians.
An obvious highlight for Danny during his time in Cornwall was ruling the line-out when the Pirates beat Saracens 25-17 at the Mennaye Field in March last year, plus at the end of that campaign he was a proud recipient of both the ‘Most Improved Player’ award and the ‘President’s Cup’ for his contribution made on the field during the season.
Speaking reference this latest player news, Cornish Pirates’ joint head coach Alan Paver said:
Arriving with us as a young man who had played for the Sarries Academy, but with very little exposure, Danny developed into one of the most important players in the Cornish Pirates squad.
He commands the air at line-out time, has leadership qualities, and is a big personality both on and off the pitch.
We wish Danny all the best on his move, and it would be no surprise to see him playing in the Premiership in the future.
Commenting on his move Danny has said:
My four years with the Cornish Pirates helped me considerably in my development both as a player and a person, and my sincere thanks are extended to everyone involved.
The club also has some wonderful supporters, whilst Cornwall, not surprisingly, will always be a special place to me.
