It is with great sadness that we learn of the death of former member Ian Kettles.
Teapot, as he was affectionately known was mainly a “sponge man” and touch judge” in the 70’s and 80’s. He emigrated to New Jersey some 20+ years ago where he became involved with the New Jersey Mud Turtle Rugby Club. He helped organise a UK tour for the club in 2017 and we were pleased to host a party of 65 at our Redruth pre-match lunch in the Priory Suite at Commsplus Stadium where they received a standing ovation from everyone present.
He was a real genuine character and will be missed by all who knew him, our condolences go out to his extended family and friends.
