Councillors in Falmouth have given a £500 grant to help a rugby team of 21 young boys achieve their goal of touring Spain.

Falmouth U12s Rugby Club needs to raise £7,000 to travel to a tournament in Barcelona, with players taking on odd jobs to help raise funds.

Councillor Gerald Chin Quee said he was “impressed” by the club’s track record, while Councillor Steve Eva commended the club for teaching the children discipline and keeping them off the streets.
