Have you played 100+ games for Roseland?

On Saturday 17th February we’ll be presenting a very special award to all those in attendance who have played 100 or more games for Roseland RFC.

It’s all happening in the Roseland Inn, after our league match against St Agnes.

Captains from across the decades have got together to do their best to identify who is worthy of this award.

So whether you clocked up your 100 games in the 1970s, or the 2010s – please come along!*

And make sure your subs (VP or a Player) are paid up as the awards will only be presented to those are currently a club member.

If you can’t make it along on the 17th, we’ll be happy to present your award at the next home game you attend.

Look forward to seeing you on the 17th!


* Feel free to let us know you’re coming so we can make sure we’ve your award ready.

Land’s End to John o’Groats – The 1saac Tour

Following the publication of the Sustrans 1,200 mile National Cycle Route from Land’s End to John o’Groats, which uses many low-traffic roads and traffic-free tracks, Chris Thomas and Andy Day decided to give it a go. They are raising money for their three chosen charities – the British Heart Foundation, UNICEF and the Cornwall Air Ambulance representing personal, global and local concerns.

The ride is sponsored by Pasco’s Boatyard, Rhos Construction and Skinner’s Brewery. [Read more…]

Mystery tour!

It will be Friday 18th May to Sunday 20th May.

It will cost £350 but I am taking £50 per month from now until then to make it a bit easier for people to find the money. If they want to pay me in full they are more than welcome!

They can pay me online if they like (contact Jonathan for details) Or they can pay by cash!
If anyone would like to contact me either give me a ring or ping me an email!

The New Season is Here!

Only a handful of days until the first game, so I thought I’d post an update with some of the key things coming up this season.

Saturday 2nd September

First league game of the season – it all kicks off at 3pm at Newquay Hornets. So come along and help us kick off the season with a win.

Saturday 9th September

Even better than the first game of the season, it’s our first home game of the season. We usually get a lot of support for this one – so please come along and enjoy the last of the summer sun.

Kick off 3pm, against Liskeard-Looe

Saturday 23rd September

We’re combining Ladies Day and Family Day into one event – so all ladies and family of the club, please come along to this home game!

Kick off 3pm, against Perranporth

Veterans Team

This season brings us a second team, the Veterans Team. They had their first outing at the end of the last season, and have at least one match already lined up this year.

Sunday 12th November against the Bolingey Barbarians. Kick off is 3pm at Perranporth, and the 3rd half will be in the Bolingey Inn. It’s all in aid of charity so we’ll be donating the raffle and pitch collection from our home game the day before.

Be great to see a strong Roseland contingent to cheer the old boys on.


This September our Vice Chairman Chris Thomas and our Head Coach Andy Day will be cycling from Lands End to John O’Groats.

Will add details of the just giving page etc as soon as I have them

Their first day is the 23rd September – they’ll be finishing at Philleigh so come along to Ladies Day and you’ll be able to cheer them to the day one finish line!
