This Saturday will see the Cornish Pirates welcome Coventry to the Mennaye Field for a scheduled Round 21 fixture in this season’s RFU Championship (ko 2.30pm). It is also a 3rd versus 2nd affair, with our visitors no doubt mighty keen to avenge the 21-19 defeat we inflicted upon them at their Butts Park Area home back in January.

The weather is looking settled, so a big crowd is expected for what should be a closely fought and exciting contest.

General information to note is as follows:

Tickets – Tickets for the game will be available at the gates on the day (open 12.30pm), whilst in the meantime they can also be purchased on-line. For further ticket information please visit: www.cornish-pirates.com/tickets
End of Season Awards – As is usual at the end of our final home league game, various awards will be made from in front of the main grandstand. They all have importance, including ‘The Roger Pascoe Cup’, which goes to the player many of you will have taken the opportunity to have voted for. So, who will be the winner?
2023/24 Season’s Official Programme – If you haven’t got your copy yet it is still not too late! You can purchase from the shop on Saturday or buy online for just £4! These programmes have been a one off for the 2023/24 season and includes exclusive interviews, articles, and player profiles etcetera, plus supporters have been able to fill in team details and scorers themselves. Simply ink to:

2023-24 Season Programme

The Pirates Shop – As ever, there are a variety of exciting items available for sale from the on-ground shop, which just for today will be open ahead of kick-off and up to halftime, when purchases can be made by CARD ONLY – No cash. At other times merchandise can be purchased via the online shop link: https://cornish-pirates.com/shop/

Match Programme – Supporters wishing to access the digital match programme can do so either via the social media link 3 hours before kick-off or via the QR Code located at various points around the ground.

Hospitality – If interested in booking hospitality on future match days – now for next season once the fixtures have been confirmed – please contact our Hospitality & Events Coordinator, Liz McLean – email: [email protected] In the meantime, we can advise that former ‘Pirate’ Tim Cowley will be a welcome guest this weekend who is visiting with his family.

Parking Concerns – A problem highlighted of recent is when supporters attending matches have thoughtlessly parked on grass verges nearby. There are only a few culprits, but this naturally gives a bad impression of rugby supporters and inevitably the club, so please don’t let yourselves of the club down.

Growing Links – The response to support ‘Growing Links’ has continued this season, with thanks once again to all who have contributed. If you have donations of tinned and non-perishable goods to make this week, then please drop them off at the old Tea Bar in the clubhouse corner of the ground from 12.30 – 2.30pm.

Match Day Collection – This weekend’s collection will be one in aid of ‘Coastwatch’, which is an important charity within the county, so please donate a little if you can.

Post-Match Entertainment – Being our last home game of the season, the Yeomans sponsored marquee should be buzzing post-match on Saturday, so we look forward to your presence! The popular Cadgwith Singers will strike up as usual, to be followed then by the equally popular Will Keating. It is also rumoured, according to Gavin, that Alan will be singing!

Supporter Importance – As we have highlighted in the past, our support at the Mennaye Field helps tremendously when everyone gets behind the team. Outstanding on so many occasions, you really are our sixteenth man!

Live-Streaming – For those, however, who are unfortunately unable to make the match, please note it is being live-streamed. ‘Tickets’, priced £7 only, are available to purchase via: https://www.247.tv/champsrugby

Finally, Enjoy the Match ‘One & All’ and Thanks Again for Your Outstanding Support throughout The Season!
