Under 9s 2007/08
Pirates U9s share the 'Plate'
20th April, 2008
St. Austell RFC hosted the Cornwall U9s County Festival on Sunday, where a fantastic day of rugby was enjoyed by players and supporters alike.
15 teams were split into four pools, with the Pirates drawn against Wadebridge, Truro and St. Ives.
Qualifying for a place in the Plate semi-finals, the Pirates won 3-0 against Lankelly-Fowey, before meeting Newquay in the final, who had narrowly beaten Saltash.
The final was keenly fought, it fairly ending in a 2-all draw, which meant that the Plate award for this year was shared.
Congratulation are due the Pirates U9s who played some superb rugby on the day, their squad comprising: Tyler Tresidder, Joel May, Joel Bick, Joe Lord, Jack Williams., Harold Ault, Harry Greenwood, Eddie Hall, Drew Mitchell (capt), Daniel Butterfield, Connor Rushton.
Redruth emerged winners of the U9s County Cup.
Hayle U9s v Pirates U9s
30th March, 2008
Four players from St. Ives joined the Pirates to play a combined Hayle/St. Ives team. The Pirates played extremely well, their forwards strong and their backs eager to run, and although they won comfortably there was still due praise for Hayle who showed commitment throughout.
Pirates U9s: Drew Mitchell, Eddie Hall, Harold Ault, Jack Williams, Joel Bick, Joel May, Tyler Tresidder, plus Ebony, Peter, Corry and Luke from St. Ives
Pirates 30 Penryn 5
3rd. February, 2008
Pirates 30 Penryn 5
Both teams played some very good rugby in tricky conditions, and although the Pirates deserved the win the scoreline does not reflect the fairly close nature of the game. All the players tackled and defended consistently well, but the Pirates had the edge when attacking. Some fantastic running saw tries by Tyler Tresidder, Joel Bick and Joel May, as the whole team worked hard and contributed to the win, with special words of praise for Jack Williams and Drew Mitchell who had particularly good games. Well done Pirates U9s.
Pirates Under 9's v Liskeard/Looe
January 27th, 2008
Pirates 40 - Liskeard/Looe 7
A very strong performance by the Pirate U9s running in numerous tries and conceding just one. Liskeard/Looe were committed throughout and rallied strongly in the last quarter.
The Pirates showed some very strong running and good interlinking play. Their defence was excellent and support for the ball carrier noticeably improved
Try scorers were Tyler Tresidder, Joel May, Joel Bick, Harold Ault, Harry Greenwood and Drew Mitchell. Man of the match was awarded to Harold Ault who was outstanding in all aspects, particularly tackling and ripping the ball in mauls.
