Club Captain

Further to last month’s announcement that there was to be no AGM this year, just one new nomination was received for any Club Officer/Committee position.

Alex Benbow was nominated for the position of Club Captain – proposed by Joe Davidson and seconded by Ant Thomas.  With no other nominations received, approval of the Committee and Ant being prepared to give up the captaincy role, Alex is duly elected.

While congratulating Alex upon his appointment, the club would like to express sincere thanks to Ant for his undoubted efforts and commitment over the past two seasons. Moving forward in these difficult times, we now need to get behind and support Alex In his new role as we all work towards getting back to playing rugby, hopefully in the not too distant future.

50th Anniversary Year

As many players, VP’s, sponsors and other members are doubtless aware, the forthcoming 2020/21 season is the 50th Anniversary Season for Roseland RFC.
However, having taken account of the so many extraordinary challenges that lie ahead, not least being that we really don’t know when Community Club Rugby will be allowed to meaningfully recommence, the Committee has taken an early decision to postpone all 50th Anniversary celebrations until the 2021/22 season.   Having experienced difficultly in trying to make some very basic arrangements, we agreed that we should concentrate all our efforts on dealing with the many COVID 19 related issues which will doubtless challenge our resources.   
Our 50th Anniversary is very important to us all and, as disappointed as we are to postpone, this decision has been made in the best interests of safety to our members.   So, in effect, we shall be celebrating 50 completed years as opposed to our 50th season, something we still intend to do with great style once life has hopefully returned to something closer to normal. 


Our Annual General Meeting is due to take place on Tuesday 30th June but obviously we can’t proceed with this normally as planned.  Although more senior clubs with suitable resources are conducting an AGM by video conferencing, this is unfortunately not feasible for ourselves and our AGM has regrettably had to be cancelled.   Upon the […]

Stithians 0-28 Roseland

Roseland travelled to Stithians looking for another win but with Stithians narrowly losing away to Helston last week the Roseland boys knew this would be no pushover. Stithians began with a depleted squad and the Roseland squad wasn’t as big as usual either. Christian Benbow was again missing. He’d recovered from his broken nail but […]

Redruth Albany 7-85 Roseland

This week Roseland travelled down to the dark depths of Redruth to face Albany in their third league game of the season. Rumours of Albany struggling for players were unfortunately true but history has shown us that anything can happen in Rugby and no game can be taken for granted. Albany lined up with 14 […]

Roseland 27-5 Perranporth

Helston 25-17 Roseland

Roseland travelled down to Helston with a strong squad, missing only a few key players. Helston had a similarly strong squad and on paper both teams looked to be well matched, having both dropped down to Cornwall Two this year and looking for promotion straight back to Cornwall One. The game started slowly, with both […]

Lankelly Fowey 24-29 Roseland
