  3. Consistency and discipline

    The bane of football is the continual berating and putting down of the officials. The indiscipline of players and supporters mouths ......everyone knows everything - but knows nothing. And we wonder why there is a shortage of referees, not hard to work out in my opinion. I watched a game yesterday where the moaning in the first half was ridiculous toward the ref, and in one instance a player kicked the ball with some venom at the volunteer lino. Quite rightly he was booked ...I would have sent him off in the blink of an eye...lucky fella.
  4. Ventured into Devon yesterday to watch Plymouth Parkway v Launceston Town. Interesting match which was not totally one sided and Launceston can be a little aggrieved not to have come away with at least a point. What I did find very frustrating, was the discipline of the Launceston bench. Several times throughout the game, the Referees Assistant requested the number of people standing in the technical area be reduced, as there were times when at least ten were standing. He requested, he warned them that he would call the Referee over, but still no notice taken. He repeated his request, again ignored and again he threatened to call the Referee over. This he did several times more, but still ignored. He still didn't call the Referee over. Are Launceston Town employing foreign management and players who don't speak english? Isn't the inconsistency of official the bane of football?
  5. Another defeat. Another, "we played well though ".
  6. Four Lanes 1 - 5 Probus On a pitch that for the most part wasn't too bad considering the rain, only one corner hadn't managed to cope. A slow start from both teams resulted in Four Lanes scoring the opener, good pass through with a good finish. As time went on Probus became a stronger presence, this resulted in a nice cross from Connor Rhodes with the header from Sam Bullen. Probus then took the lead when a ball looked up to the edge of the box and a first time volley from Sam Hadfield. Before the half was over Sam Bullen lobbed another over the GK. The second half was comfortable for Probus, with another goal coming from a corner, and a bizarre way for Sam Bullen to finally, after missing lots from about 6 yards, when the GK tried to hold him by the legs, only for Bullen to try and nod the ball over the goal line, whilst it was on the floor. Probus missed a lot of chances, but overall a fair result on the day.
  7. And all those youngsters in the bar couldn't run the line for you .....grrr !!!! winds me up that. Main pitch looking good, better than I've seen it before, and a credit to get it on if you had the same rain this week that we had. Well done ....should have been a draw for me, and well reffed I thought, even with all the moaning.
  8. Don't think you will ever wake up and smell the coffee from down the river.....but hey (!) happy Xmas to you too.
  9. Tottenham Hotspur

    Turned on that sixpence again ....funny old game.
  10. Sounds it with that many clubs in 70 days!
  11. Although it's never nice losing a game, in particular when you almost hold a top team from the league above, it's probably a good thing we lost this game. We can now solely focus on the league and finish in the best possible position.
  12. Torn to pieces in the goal mouths. Brought most of it home with me I think. Rest of the pitch isn't too bad from what I remember
  13. Trelawny League - Saturday December 16 2017

    I was right! The last goal was not given as Praze were off-side. I texted full-time with 5-3 which was put up originally but somehow it was changed to 6-3. Just texted again. My note-book is always right. For those who want to know. Praze 4-1 up at half time and strolling. Penzance had 4-5 starters missing and then lost another forcing our Manager to come on. Goals scored 1-0 (9mins), 1-1 (13), 2-1 (18), 3-1 (36), 4-1 (44), 4-2 (50), 5-2 (58) and 5-3 (81) Our keeper played his best game for ages saving a string of shots and also two penalties.
  14. Can the score be adjusted on the full time site?
  15. Just had clarity from the ref Praze 5-3 Penzance Reserves Goals for PZ from Macaulay Fellows and Reece Evans x2
  16. Trevor Mewton - RIP - truly a legend!

    I heard some very sad news today that one of my old football managers Trevor Mewton had passed away on Thursday morning. Trevor was a true gentleman and very professional and it was a pleasure to play for him as a player. I signed for Falmouth Town football Club in the early nineties and played with many great players, Dave Philp, Denty, Tommy Mathews, The white Barry White - Dave Gardner, George Torrance, Dodger Long, Rappo, Thawities And Timmy Allen, what a great team, I think that season we went on to win the league and cup, runners up in the Cornwall senior cup and had a fantastic run in the FA Vase. Rappo and Tommy touched on the camaraderie and friendship which was developed back then and still remains now some twenty seven years ago. I thank Trevor for that, for introducing me to fantastic players and the memories that comes with playing football. I met Trevor a couple of years ago when I was playing for Argyle legends against a Cornwall legends team which Trevor had organised, again he created a superb team, full of top names, great players, it just showed his passion and determination even in veterans matches, he wanted to win. Myself and My wife Nicola would like send condolences to Jill and Trevor’s family and if you could compare Managers to the professional level he would be Cornwall’s Alex Furguson. RIP Trevor Mewton
  17. Top supporter Ray and seasons greetings to you Still only two Cornish clubs to reach the 2nd Round Proper of The F A Trophy. lol 1977-76 Hendon 4 --Falmouth Town 0 2015-16 Truro city 0--Macclesfield Town 2
  18. Bit of a bummer this one especially for all the supporters who had travelled all that way only to be undone by a 88th minute winner. It was obvious neither side wanted a replay as was shown by Truro who made a triple substitution late in the game. Still at least we can now concentrate on winning the league then turning professional then playing in the new S4C then gaining promotion to the Football League then I woke up. Merry Christmas to all my readers especially the ones down the other end of the river.
  19. In fairness, Newquay were the better side for all but thirty minutes of the first half. Also Plimuff took their chances very well, where we didn't. Our finishing was weak, at best. Bucks beat Chipping Sodbury 2-1.... played well apparently.
  20. The boy Floyd-Norris looks to have a bright future 😀
  21. Trevor Mewton - RIP - truly a legend!

    As I've mentioned at the top of this thread - Trevor’s funeral is at St Enoder Church, Summercourt on December 29 at 2.00pm. And to echo the wishes of Trevor's wife Jill, that Glynn Hooper mentioned on the radio on Saturday :-"We're going to have a party, with the service at 2.00pm and a wake (probably) back at Fraddon afterwards to celebrate Trevor's life and Jill would like everyone to come along and celebrate with her."
  22. FA Trophy - First Round Proper Sutton United FC 1 - 0 Truro City FC Attendance 576 Taken from the Sutton website :- A goal from substitute Craig Dundas just before the end saw Sutton overcome a tough challenge from a Truro team who will feel they deserved to take the tie back to Treyew Road. Tommy Wright and Dundas missed clear chances, but it was Truro who came closest when Ed Palmer’s free kick crashed against the bar. However Dundas produced the decisive moment as he ran on to a Craig Eastmond pass and lifted the ball past the advancing goalkeeper.
  23. I don't like to wind up Newquay 'Atherton LR' they are one of Cornwall's Premier 'Clubs' that have been in the Doldrums far far to long! But One win in 10 games That's not festive cheer for the Peppermints supporters! ( Nibble Nibble! ) How did Buckland do yesterday Atherton? A very tough afternoon yesterday for Bodmin at The Mill, pitch got very heavy & I think all the players were pleased when the whistle went! Credit to Torpoint ground staff for getting the match On though, well done lads
  24. Trevor Mewton - RIP - truly a legend!

    RIP Trevor Mewton, I remember you fondly when I was just getting started in local football. I always enjoyed our chats and your words of wisdom. You will missed by one and all.
