St Ives is able to field a strong squad to face local rivals Hayle Lions. This will be the first time in several years that the two teams have faced each other in a league match. Recent duals have featured on Boxing Day as 'friendlies'.  The last home encounter for St Ives was December 22nd 2012, when they won 18-13. Only five of that squad remain: see who was involved back then.

Travel issues for the St Ives team bus meant the kick off was delayed for 10 minutes as the Hakes did not arrive until half an hour before the...

Honiton V St Ives, Saturday 19th September

 

 

The list of names for round 3 of the Tribute Cornwall & Devon League is the most likely group to travel to Honiton on Saturday.

 

 

The front row looks particularly strong with a number of options. Ben Wheeler and Tony Stevens are propbable replacements. The latter has made himself available until at least the end of the year. What a bench to come on and give massive stability to the scrum. Joel Stevens is...

The changing room entrance has taken on a much improved look. The changing rooms have had a makeover during the Summer including the newly re-vamped entrance thanks to St Ives Windows, St Ives Signs & Paul Prisk.

 

As recently as last Tuesday the outside walls were being given a new coat of paint.

Plymstock Albion Oaks 21 : 36 St Ives

St Ives got off to an encouraging start in the first league match of the season. Calm, warm conditions on a flat dry pitch allowed for plenty of open rugby from both teams. Plymstock were eager to show their right to play in a higher league, having beaten Veor in the end of season playoff. And they were no push overs. From the side-lines the St Ives supporters thought the opposition would 'blow' with 20 minutes to go, but this was never the cas...

With captain Ben Taylor unavailable, Joel Stevens steps in at hooker. Jess Tompsett comes in at loose head, with Ben Jenkins, back from cricket, adding weigh...
