  • We played 4 days out of the planned 5 in 2022, a one-day game v the U18's at Hayle, a game rained off while en-route to Dorset at Dorchester, a one-day game v the Royal Navy at Taunton School and a 2-day game v Devon at Cornwood.
  • Piran Kent of Redruth captained the team during the season and did well in a team which changed considerably during the season meaning it was challenging to get any consistency on the field.
  • There were some decent performances during the games though, especially from some of the younger players such as Billy Taylor of Helston and Alfie Macdonald of Camborne, Piran himself was consistent in his performances. Ellis Whiteford and Luke Brenton also performed well, Ellis particularly standing out in the 2-day game v Devon.

The two one-day games were of value, the first 2 thirds of the 2 day game v Devon were of value, the last part of the Devon game, unfortunately, ended in a slight farce, those with experience of 2-day cricket will recognise the challenges in setting up a result situation, on this occasion the setting up and declaration saw Devon bat on.
