Penryn went into the Christmas break with a bucket-load of momentum after a 74-0 victory over Torrington on Saturday.

It keeps them firmly in the Cornwall/Devon League title hunt and sets up a mouthwatering trip to promotion rivals Wellington in the first game of the New Year.

Borough coach Ian Morgan said: "We needed to bounce back from last week's disappointing result and we did.

The lads responded really well this week and everyone wanted to finish the year on a high, which they did. Torrington travelled with a few players missing, which seems to be the difference between the top four sides and the rest; players not travelling for away games.

"To their credit, they worked really hard all game and tackled for their lives."

Reflecting on the Borough performance, he added: "We seemed far more controlled this week and played with a tempo we lacked last week and there were some great individual performances, but collectively we played better as a team."

Looking ahead, the Penryn coach said: "The boys have a well earned break now from the league and have the Boxing Day clash with Falmouth to look forward to, followed by the Cornwall Cup game at St Austell. Although these are also important fixtures, our next focus is Wellington away on January 6. We have to make sure that we are at our best on that day."

Morgan concluded with words of recognition for supporters and staff: "Merry Christmas and thank you to all of our loyal supporters. You do mean a lot to the squad. Also the support staff that help during the week and on match days. Everyone plays their part in our success. Thank you everyone."
