Cornwall League 1 (known as Tribute Cornwall League 1 for sponsorship reasons) is an English level nine rugby union league for clubs based in Cornwall. It has been running continually since 1987–88. the champions are promoted to the Cornwall/Devon, and the runner-up play the second team in Devon 1, with the winning team gaining promotion. One or two teams are usually relegated to Cornwall 2.

From the 2016–17 season Cornwall 1 and Cornwall 2 were amalgamated to create the Tribute Cornwall League with fifteen teams playing each other once in the first phase. After Christmas the teams split into two leagues with the top eight playing in Cornwall One and the remainder playing in Cornwall Two.[1] Hayle won both phase one and phase two, winning the title with two matches to play. They were promoted to the Cornwall/Devon league, following their relegation from that league in 2015–16. Newquay Hornets finished in second place and were due to play their counterparts from Devon, Torrington for the second promotion spot. Newquay declined to play the match as they did not want promotion.

For the 2018–19 season Cornwall 1 and Cornwall 2 reverted to two separate divisions. At present, a club from Cornwall 1 is picked to take part in the RFU Junior Vase – a national cup competition for clubs at levels 9–12.

Notes

  1. ^ Veor moved to the Memorial Ground at the start of the 2016–17 season having been given notice to leave original ground Wheal Berry.[6]
  2. ^ Illogan Park withdrew from the league at the start of the season due to having only fourteen players in their squad.
  3. ^ 3rd place Liskeard-Looe also promoted.
  4. ^ Lankelly-Fowey withdrew during the league season.
  5. ^ The splitting of the Cornwall League back into Cornwall 1 and Cornwall 2 at the end of the season meant that five clubs were relegated. They were St Day, Perranporth, Illogan Park, St Agnes and Redruth Albany.
  6. ^ There was no relegation as Cornwall 1 and Cornwall 2 were combined to form a single division in the first half of the following season.
  7. ^ The result of the 2003–04 promotion play-off between Old Plymothian & Mannamedian and Perranporth is not listed on the RFU website, although Old Plymothian & Mannamedian would have had home advantage as they had a better league record than Perranporth. We do, however, know that Old Plymothian & Mannamedian won this game as they were in Cornwall/Devon the next season while Perranporth were not.
  8. ^ Due to the restructuring of the English league system by the RFU for the 2009–10 season there would be no 2008-09 promotion playoff between the league runners up in Cornwall 1 and Devon 1 with the champions and runners up from each league going up automatically.
  9. ^ Topsham were automatically promoted at the end of the 2015–16 season as Camborne School of Mines did not want to be promoted.[52]
  10. ^ Torrington were automatically promoted at the end of the 2016–17 season as Newquay Hornets did not want to be promoted.[54]

Sponsorship

The Cornwall One League was part of the Courage Clubs Championship and sponsored by Courage Brewery from the first season, 1987–88 to season 1996–97.[57] The league was unsponsored until season 2007–08 when St Austell Brewery sponsored South-west based leagues under the Tribute Ale label.
