Appalling weather wrecked many sporting events over the Easter weekend with the exception of Rugby where the counties teams welcomed the visit of the touring London-based Old Dunstonians.

In heavily waterlogged conditions, Penryn RFC defeated the touring side by 31-12 whilst the Falmouth side won a closely contested match 15-6.

In a special treat for Falmouth players former England forward Micky Skinner turned out at number 8 for the Dunstonians but was unable to inspire his team to victory.

The poor weather did not manage to deter the hosting of the annual Penryn Easter 7s tournament either.

The competition was won by the Old Gregorians, who created a new record by being the only team made up entirely of brothers.

The Vyvyan brothers the youngest of which would go onto represent England caused such a stir in Penryn that SKY TV came down to cover their success in the Tournament.

The brothers defeated the Penryn A side 17-14 in the final whilst the plate was won by Camborne after beating Penryn B 17-5.

Falmouth Packet:

Penryn Athletic 7, Penzance 0

Penryn Athletic romped to a 7-0 win over Penzance in the Jolly’s Combination League.

Penzance to their credit did attempt to play football but were ultimately no match against an impressive Penryn side.

From the Kick-off Penzance were on the back foot against the experienced Penryn side who opened the scoring through Steve Warr’s free kick on ten minutes.

Two minutes later and striker Andy Stivey was on hand to nod home well deserved second for the home side.

Despite their dominance Penryn struggled to turn possession and chances into goals and went into half-time 2-0 up.

Into the second half and the flood gates opened, despite the best efforts of Penzance keeper Scott May, Penryn found the ruthlessness that they had been lacking with a double from Andy Tasker and Andy Stivey completing a hattrick putting the match to bed.

One more in the closing stages from Adrian Hart brought Athletics tally up to seven and capped what had been a fine performance from the Penryn boys.
