End of Season Awards Night

On Saturday night Roseland RFC held their end of season awards night. Previously this is held at The Alverton in Truro however this year we done things differently.

It was held at The Roseland Inn at Philleigh (our usual clubhouse) and we took over the pub and had a sit down hog roast. The evening was very informal although everyone still dressed up. Everyone had a thoroughly good time, even the lads that had spent the day at Royal Cornwall Show sampling the beer tents.

Roseland celebrated what had been on the whole a successful season with a mid table finish. The club has retained ans recruited well over the season and coach Andy Day committed for at least another 5 years (according to Chairman Richard Cotterill).

There wasn’t an official speaker but Chairman Richard Cotterill, Coach Andy Day and Captains Andrew Stark and Anthony Thomas all said a few words thanking players, supporters and everyone connected to the club for there continued support and commitment.

The winners of the awards for the night were:

Tourist of the Year – Dan Wilkins

Top Try Scorer – Christian Bembow

Most Imoroved Played -Nick Johns

Supporters Player of the Year – Ed Llewellyn

Clubman of the Year – Andy Day

Players Player – Joe Davidson

For all current players and anybody interested in joining Roseland RFC preseason training starts at 7pm Tuesday 3rd July at Philleigh followed by the Clubs A.G.M.

Alternative post-match venue for Saturday’s home game

This Saturday (7th April) we will NOT be heading to the Roseland Inn after our home game.

The pub has been booked for a wake, so we’ve agreed to head elsewhere.

The lucky venue who will be hosting us on Saturday after match is The Punchbowl and Ladle in Penelewey  (so yes, you will need to cross on the King Harry Ferry!).

An obvious choice to visit one of our past players, landlord Graham Hill.

Hope to see you all there after the game.

The 100 Club – are you in? have you collected your badge?

In February we presented the first of the 100+ games pin badges.

But there are still many yet to be presented…

so if your name is below then please come along to a home game to collect your award.**

if your name isn’t below, and you think it should – let us know via the contact us page

Roger meets Eddie

This year we nominated long-time club supporter, and past President Roger Grove for one of the RFU volunteer awards days.

Roger was lucky enough to get picked, and took Nathan Chapman (past captain, and current No. 8) along for the event.

From the stories they were sharing on Saturday, and the pictures below it’s safe to say they had an amazing day at Twickenham for the England v Ireland game earlier this month.

Roseland conquered by Veor…..again!

Roseland 6 Veor 22

Match report by T.O.G. Corners Nick Sylvester

Roseland’s run of defeats against Veor continued in last Saturday’s lunchtime fixture in cold but dry conditions with a keen cross wind. Inevitably the “going” was heavy -rugby’s equivalent to The Cheltenham Festival earlier in the week – such that it was never likely to be good for running rugby.

Roseland Suffer Shock Home Defeat

Another fine report by T.O.G. Corner regular Nick Sylvester.

Roseland 22 St Agnes 29

At last the heavens provided some dry weather for this eagerly awaited Sponsors Day fixture against St Agnes while presenting an excellent opportunity for Roseland to build on last week’s away win at Illogan Park. Although the visitors have already failed to fulfil a couple of league fixtures in 2018, Roseland were well aware that St Agnes still possess plenty of talent and experience from within their small squad, having suffered a home defeat back in October.
