The Pirates have been saddened to hear that former player Roger Roberts passed away recently.

A retired architect, Roger played well over 400 games for Penzance & Newlyn RFC, including in decades past being a popular captain of the third team. He was also proudly a Vice President, which is an honour only bestowed upon an elected few.

The funeral will take place on Wednesday 26th April, commencing 2pm at Chapel Street Methodist Church, Penzance.

A pasty and saffron cake reception is to then be held afterwards at the Pirates rugby club.

Our condolences at this time are expressed to family members, his partner Jackie, and to close friends.
