  2. MOUSEHOLE NEW ACADEMY SUCCESS

    JOROME SLEW MOVES FROM MOUSEHOLE TO NATIONAL CONFERENCE SIDE CHESTER In a major piece of positive news for Mousehole AFC, striker Jorome Slew has moved six steps up the non-league pyramid to sign for full-time professional club Chester. The 19-year old joined Mousehole’s newly-established Academy in July after being released by Championship club Sheffield United. He had played and scored regularly for The Blades’ Reserves before his promising progress was dealt a set-back by a broken leg. Mousehole’s Academy Director Jason Blunt, who was appointed in June, brought Jorome in soon afterwards as part of the club’s strategy of offering full-time training and regular first-team football for young players released by their professional clubs. Jorome made an instant impact with The Seagulls in pre-season and scored superb hat-tricks in each of the first two away League games of the new season as well as two more crucial goals in the League Cup win at previously unbeaten Ludgvan. He quickly became a club favourite not only for his dynamic play, but also his willing contribution to youth training. Following recommendations from Jason Blunt, Jorome came to the attention of several clubs back in his native Yorkshire. He had extended trials with Championship club Barnsley before signing for semi-professional Northern Premier League side Goole AFC, for whom he scored within minutes of his debut two weeks ago. This week, Chester moved to bring Slew to the Deva Stadium with the club currently lying in the lower reaches of the National Conference – effectively the ‘fifth Division’. If selected, Jorome will make his debut in front of the BT Sport cameras in the live coverage of the Chester versus Dagenham & Redbridge fixture this Saturday (25th) at 12:30pm. Jason Blunt was upbeat about the news: “I always knew Jorome had the potential, but having a broken leg and being released by Sheffield United severely dented his confidence. I’m absolutely delighted that we at Mousehole have played a big part in getting him back on track. His ambition is to be a full-time professional footballer, so going to a club like Chester could be the start of a journey back to the level he wants to – and should – be at. We’re now developing a relationship with Chester FC to create some initiatives that will be beneficial to Mousehole. In the meantime, we intend to carry on our policy of attracting more of the young Joromes down to Mousehole, as they can make a big contribution to the club, as well as playing men’s football, putting themselves back in the shop window, and looking after their own development away from football. A good example of this is Max Hill, who was released by Leeds United Academy and has come down to Mousehole, established himself as first-choice centre back, won himself an apprenticeship with a local company, and is studying for professional qualifications at the same time.” Mousehole Chairman Tim Richardson added: “We wish Jorome all the best and will be keeping an eye on his progress from afar. His scorching start to the season will be long-remembered, but apart from anything else he showed the technical qualities that other players can aspire to, and helped the club in the first stage of its own ambition to raise the standard of football in this part of the world.”

  5. Mr Rowe has kindly offered to referee our game at 12, so just waiting for confirmation from DC and then the league that that’s okay fingers crossed!
  6. Senior football facility's

    Some good points raised in the thread regarding participation levels. I personally don't think it's directly correlated to facilities at all though. That is a much smaller issue in the grand scheme of things and can even be used as a convenient justification for the "I'd rather do something else with my Saturdays" crowd. I think it's probably a symptom of much broader issues in society. People are arguably more overworked now and have less energy, time or financial means to engage in sport as a past time. It takes a lot more energy to be an active participant in your own life than it does to passively observe other people's. This doesn't go just for Football but it just so happens that it is quite a good example. Things like rising food prices, a huge fall in living standards (the biggest in 60 years in the UK), wages falling massively behind inflation, poor quality food etc. These are the culprits, not the dugouts or the length of the grass.

  9. Have to agree with Danny I, having played for sides that won the lge and sides that have needed to be re-elected the refs always seem to favour the top side. Seems to happen in all leagues
  10. Breaking News: players and managers make more bad decisions than referees!!
  11. Good cannot have another team folding
  12. Same as us at TMS Tempo.
  13. i did offer praze to kick off at 12 and id their game aswel at gwinear but praze couldn't raise a team for 12 due to work commitments.
  14. Leeds I have to disagree with you! The ref was awful on sat and think the standard this year is the worst I’ve seen in a good few seasons!! But we are not going to moan loosing by the odd goal instead of 4-5 like last season I’ll take that!! Looking forward to the tough challenge tomorrow against a great Tavi side!!
  15. Disagree here, no side in any league (Premier, Peninsula, or Sunday league) can blame a Referee for winning only one game in 8 like Newquay's current league form. I believe decisions even themselves out over a season (just my opinion). Sure you will turn it around though, very sad news this week coming out of Mt.Wise regarding Phil Ryder's death, now there was a man who would of got you a few goals, he would of got you out of your barron run. Played in the Great Newquay teams of old. Great player, great guy. Condolences to Phil's family

  20. PARKWAY V CALLINGTON

    Just pointing out that as a football supporter watching parkway hit 8 past Callington isn’t the best that tomorrow afternoon can offer.
  21. I'm not a person to get on the back of referees who make 'poor' decisions which ultimately effect games, but Newquays last few games away at Bodmin and last week at St Austell have left me feeling disappointed with the refereeing standard of those two games. The Bodmin game was refereed like a pantomime come early, and affected both sides, the management of both teams and the supporters. But the most obvious game effecting decision came last weekend when Newquay full back Harry Tilston was shown a straight red for a shoulder to shoulder, touch line challenge that admittedly bounced the young Alfie Flack over the touch line. Two players coming together at speed, moving in different directions. No raised feet, no use of hands or arms or head. Dangerous? NO. Physical?YES. Flack was straight back on his feet and ready to play. On most grounds across the country I feel it would be a stern talking too, followed at worst by a yellow card. If it was a yellow then a red would have followed as Tilston had been booked earlier. That I would have understood and agreed with. Instead a straight red !! Sensible refereeing? I think not...Game changing ? Definitely. As for the Newquay manager being sent to the stand I cannot comment as I was too far away to know what he said. However having just seen his side get back to 1-1 and having taken over the momentum of the game, to be reduced to ten must have been frustrating. That's not saying it's right to shout any sort of abuse, but the referees inconsistent abuse of the laws was perhaps a mitigating circumstance. The Newquay managers frustration could perhaps be traced back to earlier in the first half when Newquay's Max Everard was taken out from behind in front of his manager and the dugouts, leaving him on his back having been booted up in the air. The youngster did not roll around or scream in pain, instead like Flack would later, jumped straight up to get on with the game with the free kick having been given. NO yellow, NO red, NO talking to ? MADNESS. At 0-0 it was not a game changing moment, but again the referee needed to show some consistency and apply the laws to both teams, then managers might not get so frustrated.. (Maybe!!!!!!) On a positive note it was an entertaining game of football which both teams deserve credit for and could have gone either way. Also good to see both managers giving youngsters and Cornwall County under 18s starting berths. St Austells Gab Hamshore at right back was exceptional and he kept Newquay's Tornado Bello and Jack Bray Evans in check for most of the game, whilst Alfie Flack showed pace and touch when he came on as a left winger late in the last quarter of the game. For Newquay Everard, starting in midfield was up against a strong St Austell middle which included man of the match Chris Reski, but along with his partner and last seasons County under 18s midfielder Cam Turner, again showed he has a passing game which includes composure and is starting to develop an understanding with the more experienced Turner. The youngster in the Newquay side who deserves the real applause is the 17 year old Newquay keeper. Zac Roberts who must be first name on the team sheet and not because he's their No 1. He is improving game on game. Brave, a good shot stopper, good early distribution of the ball and kicks well off the floor and from hand. The County under 18s must have good keepers for him not to be in the squad. Tomorrow Newquay travel to play the superb Tavistock side. I guess no one expects Newquay to get a result up there. Very few will get the better of Tavistock this season. For the managers, players and supporters my hope would be for an entertaining game, but whatever the result above all some sensible consistent refereeing..
  22. Dont you worry about us martin.. all is good as far as im aware. 😀😀
