Cornish Pirates Awards Evening 30th April 2006
Following a successful season which has seen them finish third in National 1 - their highest ever league standing - a gathering of over 200 attended the Cornish Pirates annual Awards Evening on Sunday.
For invited players, officials and volunteers, plus their partners, it was a time for relaxation and enjoyment in the Westholme clubhouse and adjacent marquee, all present welcomed by club chairman Robin Turner.
A special guest, making a weekend visit to present the awards, was former Wasps player Alan Black, an experienced rugby man who has held various posts at Twickenham since 1985
Alan was introduced by Phil Westren who announced and took the opportunity to express a few words about each award winner.
Blazer badges for having played 50 games for the Pirates were presented to Lee Jarvis and Wes Davies
Merit ties presented to Alan Paver, for playing 100 games & Heino Senekal for playing for Namibia
The main awards were:
Cornish Pirates' Awards - Lee Jarvis style!
Players Choice Awards **
Having witnessed hidden ability in prop Alan Paver, when he hosted a 'Ready, Steady, Cook' show at Mounts Bay's School's Healthy Eating evening earlier in the year, it was the turn of Lee Jarvis to step forward as an entertaining public speaker/comedian at the successful Cornish Pirates' Awards Night held at the clubhouse on Sunday.
Besides the main awards overseen by club archivist Phil Westren, there were three slightly different and unusual tongue-in-cheek awards presented, and no doubt instigated, by a leisurely Lee.
The awards made, with Lee using resonant Welsh tones to highlight reasons for each choice, went to:-
Most 'Boring Player of the Year' - Alan Paver (for continually ranting on about the art of front-row play).
'Poser of the Year' - a clear winner - Richard Welding.
'Dullest Player of the Year' - Kev-in "I always break the gain line, me" James.
Were they embarrassed? Not in the slightest, each taking it in good fun, the 'audience' lapping up the non-scheduled presentations made.
Formal requirements completed, a buffet followed for all - finishing off a deservedly enjoyable evening.
