One of the UK’s leading independent financial advisers is helping the Cornish Pirates keep count in more ways than one.

Cornish based Worldwide Financial Planning have supplied the team with a brand new digital scoreboard, bringing the Pirate’s facilities in-line with their bigger competitors.

The Financial Times award winning company has also been appointed by the Pirates to offer financial advice to all the players and staff.

Kat Vardy, the Pirates’ marketing manager, said: “It’s a privilege to receive free expert advice from such a renowned firm.

“We are all very grateful for Worldwide’s help, they’re a very friendly and giving bunch.

“The new scoreboard is also a fantastic gift from the company. It will certainly impress visitors to our grounds.”

Worldwide also recently sponsored the team’s shirts and programmes.

The firm’s support stems from Worldwide’s managing director Peter McGahan’s passion for the sport.

“Myself and many of the other advisors are big rugby fans,” said Peter.

“Particularly Peter Meeson who is an ex-Wasps player.

“So I’m pleased that Worldwide can offer help to the Pirates.

“The team plays a vital role within the Cornish community and I’m pleased to be a part of this. I think it’s important for businesses to support their local community.”

Peter, who has offices in Wadebridge and Truro, jokes about the role fate has had to play in the relationship between the Pirates and his Worldwide team.

“Gareth Steenson, the Pirates new fly-half comes from the same town as me in Northern Ireland, so with a coincidence like that I think we were destined to help the squad.”
