Trelawny's Army could not help Cornwall to victory at Twickenham.

Thousands of fans made the trip to watch the County Championship final.

Our guys lost to Lancashire 26 - 36 on Sunday after leading 23 - 10 at half-time and securing a penalty minutes into the second half.

Lancashire also beat us in the finals last year.

Gareth from Redruth was among thousands of people who took the trip to Twickenham to cheer the team on. He said: "The atmosphere was pretty electric to be honest with you. We got in the mood beforehand with a couple of pints and then pretty much Oggy Oggy Oggy'd along - and it was great. A good atmosphere."

Open side flanker Tom Rawlins said support for the Black and Golds has been amazing: "We're the most passionate and the most proud county - in Cornwall. Last year you could see that in there was probably about a thousand Lancashire fans but there was twenty odd thousand Cornish fans so it just shows what it means to us as a county."

Speaking before the match, loosehead Prop, Darren Jacques, said: Trelawny's Army are a 16th man for Cornwall: "I feel we've got unfinished business. It's nice to get Lancashire in the final again. They're a very, very good side and I think it's going to be very much the same; it's who handles the occasion better on the day. Some of the young guys are a bit more experienced this year and hopefully we'll be able to do what need to do to win."


The side was led by Bude teacher Ben Hilton and included players from Redruth, Truro and the All Blacks.

Kieron Lewitt (Cornish All Blacks), Craig Williams (Redruth), Lewis Vinnicombe (Redruth), Ryan Westren (Cornish All Blacks), Greg Goodfellow (Redruth), Neilson Webber (Cornish All Blacks), Tom Notman (Redruth), Lewis Webb (Cornish All Blacks); Darren Jacques (Truro), Jamie Salter (Cornish All Blacks); Damien Cook (Redruth), Ben Hilton (Cornish All Blacks); Chris Fuca (Redruth), Tom Rawlings (Cornish All Blacks), Barry John Chapman (Cornish All Blacks)

Replacements: Richard Brown (Redruth), Jamal Ford-Robinson (Cambridge Union), Bryn Jenkins (Cornish All Blacks), Tony Whittle (Famouth), Steve Johns (Birmingham Solihull Bees), Sam Parsons (Redruth), Matt Shepherd (St Austell).

Reserves: Rupert Freestone (Clifton), Joel Matavesi (Camborne)

Coach Graham Dawe said: "It's a squad that want to improve and get better and they're talking to each other. Nobody is stepping out of line and thinking they're God's gift to rugby, they're all coming together as a team and that's what playing for the shirt's really about; it's such a great shirt to play for, Cornwall."

Selectors said they were never in any doubt Cornwall could make it to Twickenham.

Terry Carter is Chairman and said: "Well everybody involved with Cornwall are getting phone calls; where do we get tickets? How do we get tickets? How do I get there? There's a real buzz; County Championship rugby is well and truly alive."
