Penryn under-11s took part in the Land Rover Cup competition in Exeter on Sunday.

In their first round robin match, they took to the field against Newton Abbot, and went down 5-0.

Next up, the Borough Boys took on North Petherton. After a previous drubbing, we conceded an early try, but, slowly the boys got back into the game – yet they couldn't quite score, eventually losing 2-0.

The third game was a Cornish derby against Perranporth. Borough's youngsters were on the attack from the start, and ran out 5-1 winners.

Game four of the group stage was against Wellington and after a scrappy match, Penryn won 2-1.

Then, for the match that the boys were all looking forward to – against Exeter Chiefs Youth Academy.

We came out of the blocks steaming to shock the Chiefs and take a 2-0 lead.

Exeter halved the deficit and Penryn soaked up the pressure until the dying moments when they scored an equaliser.

Penryn: Dylan Maclean, Isaac Smith, Rory O'Kane, Ethan Taylor, Olly Williams, Dan Misslebrook, Louis Taylor, Logan Tresize, Thom Sparks, Alex Robertson, Felix Liverod Griffin, Charlie Long, Ollie Deering, Toby Collins, Leo Dunstan.
