Cornwall Hockey Association secretary Stuart Richardson Richardson reports: "Our four Cornwall cup finals take place at Penzance Hockey Club.

"The Men's Cup final will see five-time defending champions Truro take on hosts Penzance, who contest their first final since 2011, while in the Ladies' Cup, Newquay will look to defend their crown when the take on Falmouth in a repeat of last year's final.

"The Ladies' Plate Final will see Duchy, who contest their first cup final since their formation in 2009, take on Penzance II as firm favourites after the black-and-whites beat the home side 12-0 on the final day of the league season.

"The Men's Plate final will be an all-Truro affair, as the club's 3rd and 4th XIs meet, ensuring at least one piece of silverware for the Green Army.

"Finals Day will also hold a special significance for one Cornish hockey family, who have representatives in each of the four finals.

"Amy Tatlow will contest the plate final for Duchy, sister Rachel will be challenging for the Ladies Cup with Falmouth while brothers Adam and Richard will be representing Truro first and thirds respectively in the men's finals."
