Bolingey Barbarians v Wadebridge
18th March 2018
“Our match against Wadebridge Veterans coincided with several milestone s that we have reached in the month of March. Firstly, we were officially founded as a Club in March 1993 and played our first match against a Newquay Ist XV that had been recently crowned as CRFU Merit Table Winners. Secondly, in those 25 years we have donated £100,000 to disadvantaged children in Cornwall through various organisations both large and small. Truly remarkable. Before this match we donated £4,000 to CAAP to further aid their splendid work in providing activities for children with severe medical and physical problems throughout Cornwall.
Thirdly, no one could remember ever playing a Bolingey match in the snow but all the guys played the full two half hours, or nearly. The six tries for Bolingey were scored by Dicky Pellow (Camborne) 2 and Tony Cook (Hayle), Mike Tregidgo (Falmouth) and Phil Rogers (Helston) scored one each. Wadebridge scored a spirited two tries and finished pressing the Bolingey line for a long period before the post protectors were finally removed.”
