Mike was a former Pirates player who later coached our Colts. Along with others I very much enjoyed and appreciated his efforts, culminating in our team winning the Cornwall Sevens in 1968, plus recording a memorable victory against Neath Athletic Colts. The late Roger Pearce assisted Mike, them together forming a very fine coaching duo.

I remember him as a player too. He could play on the wing and occasionally in the forwards too. A real club stalwart in the 50's and 60's. One of those who gave back to the club a lot more than he ever took out of it. RIP
