Redruth's young side will learn from their added-time loss to Clifton on Saturday, says boss Steve Larkins.
The Reds lost 23-20 to Clifton, with the visitors scoring the winning drop goal in the 11th minute of added time.
"I thought with five minutes left we were going to win, but I didn't realise there'd be another 16 to play," Larkins told BBC Radio Cornwall.
"We are a young team and we're going to learn from this, we're an inexperienced team, but we are now holding our own."
The defeat leaves Redruth sixth in National Two South after two wins and two defeats.
"We've got players here who want to play for Redruth but I'm sure the crowd appreciated the effort put in by the players and how much enthusiasm and courage they showed."
