We have very good material about Newlyn Rugby Football Club in the Sports section of the archive as Phil Westren has allowed us to copy the club’s archives for the Newlyn archive. The Sports section also contains information and photographs about a number of different sports including water sports and bowls. It includes photos, pamphlets, programmes and accounts of sportsmen and women. Other information about sports can be found in the cuttings files and in the family section.SportNov18
