The Cornish Pirates have this morning announced that fly half Will Cargill will be leaving at the end of the season.

Cargill is the holder of the clubs Sportsman of the year award in 2018/19, and Clubman of the year in 2019/20. In six seasons at the Pirates he has made over 100 appearances and scored an impressive 597 points.

In a statement the Pirates said: "As previously mentioned, it is not usual nearing the end of a rugby season for clubs to take the opportunity to confirm the names of certain players who are due to leave. The Cornish Pirates are no different, and sincere appreciation is expressed to each, thanking them for their contribution, as are best wishes for their futures."

"Following on from recent announcements the Cornish Pirates can today confirm that after six years in Cornwall, during which he has made 117 appearances and, in the process, has amassed 597 points, Cheshire-born fly-half Will Cargill will be leaving the club at the end of this season."

Cargill was sad to be leaving the club but refelected fondly on his time in Cornwall, he said: "Having absolutely loved my time with the Cornish Pirates, I would like to thank everyone involved at the club, including the fans, for six years that I’ll never forget."

"I’ve got some amazing memories and made some friends for life, and although making a change in my playing career I will still be involved in rugby." added Cargill.

The fly half's last run out in a Pirates shirt will be away to Jersey on Saturday May 29.
