Aaronson Issues Rallying Call to Cornwall Fans

Cornwall RLFC star Harry Aaronson has issued a rallying call to supporters ahead of tomorrow’s final home match at the Memorial Ground in 2022. 

Oldham Roughyeds are the Choughs’ opposition as Betfred League 1 enters its 20th round.

The season in front of our own fans started for Cornwall back on April 10 when Midlands Hurricanes were the visitors.

In this, Cornwall’s debut season at professional level, supporters have flocked to the Mem in their numbers with the Choughs’ average attendance figure only bettered by title-elect Keighley Cougars.

And despite not being able to reward the passionate and partisan support – described as hostile in a complimentary manner by North Wales Crusaders’ head coach Anthony Muuray last week – with a home victory yet this term, there is one final chance for the Choughs to break their duck.

Another bumper four figure attendance is expected for Oldham’s trip to the Duchy with the Rugby League World Cup trophies on display at the Mem before the match.

And after full-time, the club will be holding an awards presentation for the 2022 season from 4.30pm with bar, food and music available for all attendees. 

Eight tries for Harry Aaronson in 2022 – Patrick Tod

Aaronson, who has been one of Cornwall’s stand out performers this season with eight tries, hailed the home support in 2022 as ‘unbelievable’ and is hoping for yet more vocal backing against Oldham. 

“On behalf of all the players in the squad, we would like to thank all the fans who’ve attended games and followed us this season,” enthused the 24-year-old. 

“The crowds at the Memorial Ground have been unbelievable and although the results haven’t been what we would have hoped, the backing has remained with us and that means an awful lot.

“It has been a great start to professional rugby league in Cornwall and we are looking forward to going out in 2022 in front of our own supporters with a real bang.

“So if you’re at a loose end tomorrow, we’d love your support in our final home game against Oldham which is one of my old clubs.”
