When I looked up the fixtures, this game was originally planned for today, the official boxing day as yesterday was supposed to be in place of Christmas Day - so I missed it :-( Someone in the meantime had updated it to give the correct date, but not in time for me to notice it.
Reds pick up the Roddas Cup despite a big performance from Town. Redruth came out the
gate with all guns blazing and dominated the first quarter going into a
12 point lead which Town never recovered from. That said the home side
certainly had the better of the second half and a neutral would not have
thought there were two leagues between the sides.
The bumper 1700+ crowd could not have asked for more commitment or
effort from the amateur players of Camborne as they took the game to the
opposition to the opposition in the 2nd period.
Although defeated for the first time at home in 10 months Coach John
Griffiths will take a lot of positives from this performance when Town
return to league action in the New Year.
I love watching the derby game between Redruth and Camborne and this is the first year I have missed out on watching it.
