Biography

Chummy Lawry, as he was known, was a hard working forward for Redruth and Cornwall, for whom he made his county début in 1905. He won the County Championship with Cornwall following their defeat of Durham in the 1908 final. He then had the honour of scoring Cornwall’s only try in their defeat by the touring Australians later that year; it was the first try they had conceded on their tour. Just three weeks later Lawry was in the Cornwall side who once more lost to the Wallabies, this time at the London Olympics. He failed to add a second County Championship medal to his collection when Cornwall lost to 12-0 Durham in the 1909 final at West Hartlepool. Nothing more is known about Lawry’s life.
