Date of Birth

St Helens
Head Coach



Mike Abbott served as previous Memorial Ground chief Neil Kelly’s assistant and he will led the Choughs into a second professional campaign.

Abbott originates from the rugby league heartland of St Helens and moved to the Duchy in 2016. 

He has gained coaching experience with Cornwall RLFC’s developmental arm the Cornish Rebels and has also been involved within the local rugby union scene.

Given the club’s mantra of putting Cornwall first, Abbott’s knowledge of the local rugby scene as a whole in Cornwall meant he was the ideal candidate to replace Kelly after he opted not to return to the Mem for 2023.

Abbott, alongside Liam Finn and Anthony Murray, was shortlisted for Betfred League 1 Coach of the Year in 2023.
