On Sunday 28 May Cornwall the U20 Southwest trials took place in Bristol. During the pool stages of
this season Jason Leonard Cup, SW selectors and coaches from participating teams selected a team
of the day at each game and when all the names were collated the SW selectors invited several
players from all counties to the trials.
Cornwall had 12 players selected but due to a holiday only 11 could attend the day and following this
a SW 23 will be selected for games against other regions on the weekend 10th June in Coventry.
Pictured below are the 11 Cornish participants, from left to right, Matt Pritchard (Falmouth) Jamie
Stanlake, Joe Maunder both (St Austell) Connor Triggs, Lewis Bostock both (Truro), Matt Boothby (St
Austell) Harvey Penhallurick (Falmouth) Gideon Blacklock (Newquay Hornets), Will Perkin (St Ives)
Wes Eddy (Pirates Ams) and finally Jack Statton (Launceston, missing from the photo was Lachlan
A massive thanks from all 12 players and the entire U20 section to Trelawny’s Army for the bursary
grant to assist with their travelling expenses to Bristol. Not only do this band of supporters travel
around the country to cheer on the young black and golds but this bursary from their funds is greatly
appreciated by “one and all”.
Congratulations to all 12 players selected, another great honour to represent Cornwall at the SW
