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.
Participating in the latest Cornish Pirates Community Festival
The Cornish Pirates have welcomed numerous school and club youth teams to participate in their match day experience over many years.
When youngsters from Grampound Road Village C.E. School recently visited the Mennaye field, Penzance, theirs was an enjoyable experience they will not forget.
