Falmouth CC have secured the return of former players Adrian Noott and Antony Angove ahead of their return to County Division 1 next season.

Noott left Falmouth in favour of a move to Truro in 2014, winning the Premier League with them in 2017, but has chosen to return to his old side after their relegation from the division at the end of last season.

He said: "The club getting relegated was something that hurt me a little bit and it just felt that the time was right for me personally.

"I went to Truro to win the league, that was my goal there, I did that, and they're lost a few players now and so my reasons for staying there changed as well."

Falmouth were relegated from the Cornwall Premier League at the end of the 2019 season, finishing bottom with one win from 18 games.

Their relegation means that Noott's previous club, Truro, is now the only ever-present club in the top division of Cornish cricket, which began in 2001, with Falmouth aiming to make an immediate return to the top flight.

Angove, who rejoins the club from quadruple-winning side Penzance, said: "I've had four years away from the club, four good years at Penzance and really enjoyed it, won the Premier League down there, and I felt it was just the right time to come back and try to help the guys get back into the Premier League."
