The Camborne Colts of ‘63 are reunited

Today Trevaskis Farm is hosting a sponsor’s day at Camborne Rugby Club. My father played rugby for Camborne, Redruth and Hayle but regards Camborne as his home club and today our family sponsor the great work that they are doing in the community – providing opportunities for boys to get involved in the sport.

For this event, my father has been on something of a mission to reunite as many players as possible from the 1963 Camborne Colts team of which he was a part and which achieved great things.

He got eleven of them to make the journey. Those now living in places like New Zealand were excused!

The weather for the game was excellent. Our family had a slight conflict of interest. Two cousins from the Newquay branch of the Eustice family were on the pitch – for Newquay. But it was a comfortable Camborne win in the end. They are having a good season.
