Cornish Pirates’ coaches Gavin Cattle and Alan Paver were so pleased with their team’s superb 46-29 points win away to Doncaster Knights at the end of October, that the reward given the players was a full week off.
On Monday, however, which followed a weekend when there was no game, it was back to training, but with a difference, as the squad met up on the dunes of Gwithian and Godrevy. Surrounded by breath taking views, and providing a fun element to refresh bodies and minds, the players played football and touch rugby before capturing a true taste of Cornwall – pasties from Philps, the local baker.
Speaking at the end of their day, Alan Paver commented:
Our visit to the dunes provided a wonderful outing for the lads. We decided to sample the best of what Cornwall could offer, so we were on the beach kicking a football around, playing touch, and building sand castles!
The Cornish Pasties went down a treat and it was a lovely day, with thanks expressed to Adrian ‘Spade’ Edwards who suggested the idea and also helped us organise the visit.
Despite postponement of last Saturday’s Cornish Pirates versus Hartpury RFC match, annual visitors Bolingey Barbarians still managed to collect £589.00.
The support given to the Cornish Pirates by Chris Sedgeman Scaffolding Limited over the years has been greatly appreciated
