Players from Penryn U10s had a great time at the Mennaye on New Year’s Eve when their Cornish Pirates Match Day Experience coincided with our 41-20 victory against Nottingham
Youth participation is an important feature of Pirates Match Day and at last Saturday’s match the young players were the centre of attention as they formed the flag waving tunnel for the players to run through on to the pitch. For two of them, Olly and Ethan, it was particularly special as they were selected as the Match Day Mascots.
Following an entertaining first half - with the Pirates leading 20-3 - the Penryn Players took to the pitch for a half time exhibition of mini rugby.
Thanking the Pirates, Hannah long from Penryn said: “All of our players, coaches and family members had a great time, including watching such an exciting match.
“Thanks once again to all at the Pirates for the hospitality shown us.”
If your club or school would like to participate in a match day experience, just drop an e-mail to our Community Engagement Manager Sam Teasdale at community@ cornish-pirates.com and set the wheels in motion.
