Redruth beat Westcombe Park 21-17 in National Two South

Redruth won Dave Penberthy's final home game in charge as they beat Westcombe Park 21-17 in National Two South.

Brett Rule gave the Reds an early 3-0 lead with a penalty, but Joe Simpson and James Lindfield scored tries to put Westcombe Park 12-3 up at the break.

But Penberthy inspired his charges at half time, with Tom Duncan crossing soon after the restart.

A Paul Thirlby try and two Rule penalties made the game safe as Penberthy left the Rec on a high.

"Being with these boys, this group, we've built something special between us," Penberthy told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"It's been very emotional for me, I'm so thankful that I'm associated with this club and always will be, I won't go anywhere else.

"This year has been a battle, in the past few weeks we've been literally picking from whoever we have available.

"I think Redruth will stay in this league, I think it's vital they stay in National Two South at least and maybe then build in a couple of years."

And he thinks his replacement Adrian Edwards has the ability to move the club forward.

"I think the club can move on, there's a good core of players here.

"Hopefully Adrian can attract a couple of players in positions that we're not so strong in," he added.
