  2. NLS - 17th February 2018

    Peter Masters recently said on BBC Radio Cornwall that there is nowhere else the club can go for next season other than Torquay United. There’s not enough time to bring the likes of Bodmin or Helston up to the ground grading required. The other point to make is that the club won’t be promoted, even if they finish in a promotion place, unless it can demonstrate to the league that the S4C is going to be built. They have to show to the league that they will have a home to go back to in Cornwall.

  4. As I posted previously, if you can find the road (!) I have been to the ground on a few occasions, albeit not for a few years, I could not jump in my car and find the ground without a degree of difficulty. But I may pop down there again at sometime to see "wazzon" down there in deepest Cornwall (!)

    Those 12 years certainly seem to have flown by and a lot of good people have been lost along the way. Very nearly time to call it a day but I must pop over for a pint or three before I do.

    When they are cutting back and back again, with savings needed of circa £70 million is it (?) how can they justify building a loss making monument (?) The Pirate consortium have already stated they will subsidise it for £300K per year for the first ten years, what then(?) What if the running costs/losses are greater than that in the first ten years (?) to many if's for me..... and many others. I don't know of any local authority enterprise that has made any sort of return to the ratepayer....rather always hefty losses. I will be almightily surprised if it gets built (!) The consortium are only using TCFC as a bargaining/blackmail tool anyway, and with crowds of 300++ each match day I would think that would be a loss maker as well (!) To open up a stadium of that size requires staffing for the whole ground, not just a corner of it, and it's too small for a truly headline band to play in, so ....make you own minds up. To me - a huge financial loss on the horizon after the honeymoon period ends.
  7. THIS WEEKEND: MOUSEHOLE AFC HOST LEEDS UNITED LADIES v CORNWALL WOMEN’S TEAM TO CELEBRATE GIRLS’ AND WOMEN’S FOOTBALL IN CORNWALL In a major boost for girls’ and women’s football in Cornwall, Leeds United Ladies football squad have accepted an invitation from Mousehole AFC to visit West Cornwall over the weekend of 23rd to 25th February. The visit comes at a time of an unprecedented increase in the number of active participants and teams, providing further evidence that female football is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK. The Leeds United Ladies will train together with Mousehole’s successful Women’s team on Friday evening (23rd) from 7-8pm at Mounts Bay Academy. Then on Saturday morning they will host a soccer camp for girls aged 6 to 16 from 9-10am, also at Mounts Bay – all welcome, with a chance to be a mascot for the afternoon match. Following that, they will play a full-scale game against a Cornwall FA Women’s Representative team at Mousehole’s HQ at Trungle Parc, Paul, on Saturday (24th), kick off at 2:15pm. The Cornwall FA Women’s side has not played a match since 2015, when the County FA’s 125th anniversary was celebrated with a game against Yeovil Town Ladies. The County squad for the Leeds match will be drawn from players who play for a Cornish side or live in Cornwall, following a series of trials held recently under the watchful eyes of co-managers Vicky Fisher and Beth Willshaw. Leeds United Ladies, who are an integral part of Leeds United Football Club, compete in the FA National Women’s Premier League Division 1. They are currently in a rich vein of form, with their last three matches all being away and producing two wins - at Chorley and Morecambe – and one draw, at Crewe Alexandra. The forthcoming event was initiated jointly by Jason Blunt, Mousehole AFC’s Head of Youth and Development, who was until last June manager of Leeds United Under-23s, and locally-based David Haigh, former Managing Director of Leeds United. Blunt has already used his connections with the Yorkshire club to bring a Leeds United Academy team down to Mousehole in early October to mark the launch of Mousehole’s own Academy and also the re-opening of the club’s Trungle Parc ground after extensive improvement works in the summer. Speaking of the forthcoming Women’s football weekend, Newlyn-born Blunt said: “We want to make this a special weekend – an opportunity to celebrate and promote women’s football - not only showcasing the talents of a top-class team in Leeds United Ladies, but also giving local players the chance to learn from the visitors, and also see how they match up and can aspire to the higher standards set. It will also be a great social occasion, with the Trungle Parc clubhouse open all afternoon on Saturday for food and drink, and continuing with the friendly hospitality and fun during the evening” Lee Townend, Leeds United Ladies Chairman, said: “Our team has been going from strength to strength since the New Year and we are thrilled with their performance so far this season. The trip to Cornwall will be a fantastic chance for the team to take part in a celebratory weekend and help promote women’s football.” Mousehole Women team are also an integral part of Mousehole AFC and play in the Cornwall Women’s League, where they are enjoying their best-ever season, with a 100% record in 10 fixtures so far, putting them six points ahead at the top of the League table. For the Cornwall v Leeds match on Saturday 24th February, admission will be £5 for adults, with free entry for under-16s accompanied by a paying adult. Tickets can be purchased online by visiting the eventbrite website, as follows: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/cornwall-fa-women-v-leeds-united-women-at-mousehole-afc-tickets-42940068902. First-time visitors to Trungle Parc may wish to note that the ground (postcode TR19 6AZ) is not in Mousehole, but in the village of Paul, which is approached and signposted from the B3315 from Newlyn.

  9. Must visit SW grounds

    But you can't beat Bickland park rappo ! 👍
  10. Duchy League Favourites

    What is a full compliment. They have only had two divisions for a short while 😄
  11. Duchy League Favourites

    Certainly not the way promotion and relegation should be working Richard but we are in control of the promotion side of things with just one team being allowed up (the Premier champions if eligible). Unfortunately too many sides have dropped out of the ECPL and it is still 5 teams short of a full compliment . It will be interesting to see what, if any, difference the Peninsula League's plans will have.
  12. Make up some stupid rule like the Duckworth-Lewis method!? 😂
  13. Agree that referees get the hassle - more than they deserve but some referees - Nigel Jewell, Nigel Nicholas, John Reid to name but a few are popular enough to have banter and a decent chat with some of the players after the game. I've never known a team on one side of the pub, the other team on the other and the ref by himself. If he is, have a chat with him, make him feel welcome, thank him for giving up his time. He will have done his best and wouldn't have got everything right but the game is gone and whether it was a one goal defeat or a nine goal win, it's no one's fault. C'est la vie.
  14. Tottenham Hotspur

    WIGAN.
  15. My prediction on the grounds was correct. Or maybe getting some game time to boost fitness and confidence. Or maybe he couldn't make the long trip into England for whatever reason. He is a club player.
  16. Combo League Cup semis - Dates and venues

    Possible warm-up for the final this weekend as St Day entertain Perranporth at Vogue
  17. He's not first choice in first team so see no reason why he shouldn't play for the seconds!
  18. Trelawney League Cups Cancelled?

    As a outsider from out the area but likes to support cornish footie whilst on me hols, which Im down again in March/April, I dont feel the 60 mins games are fair..say for example 2 clubs have played twice and say top of the league has beaten bottom of the league say 7-0 and 8-0 in the 90 minute matches giving them a 15 goal advantage and then say second placed team hasnt yet played the bottom side and does this 2x 60 minutes matches and says win 4-0 and 6-0 and drew level on points at the end of the season, then surely there will be a disagreement that a club has lost on a unfair disadvantage as the team that has won the championship on goal difference played a extra 30 minutes. It is a hard decision for a league committee to make, but a Emergency meeting with all clubs should really have been called and explained to and voted on.
  19. Duchy League Favourites

    Suggests that Duchy being walked all over
  20. NLS - 17th February 2018

    I agree older. I do think this saga this time around is going right to the deadline. It is so hard to call at the moment I don't think anybody has a clue which way the stadium vote will go.
  21. NLS - 17th February 2018

    It is going to go right to the wire, last minute reprieve is needed. I'm not hearing a great deal of support for the stadium, maybe if the government comes up with the shortfall as promised - then might happen.
  22. NLS - 17th February 2018

    All ifs and buts at the moment. We'll have to see what happens first at the council meeting and then the close season.
  23. Don't quote me on this but I think Cody Cooke is back this weekend. I either saw a post somewhere on here or heard someone on Saturday mention it. I do think we'll have to play very well to get any kind of result up at Dartford this weekend.
  24. NLS - 17th February 2018

    Yup, agree with that. Maybe another version of the club at Malpas though ...a sustainable level for them.
  25. Does anybody no how long cody cooke is out for ? I think ed palmer is back this wk as we might need then as we play top team dartford this week / but sometimes results go better at away games then at home for some unknown reason
  26. NLS - 17th February 2018

    It's simple. If the club move to Torquay and the council funding doesn't get passed, that is the end for Truro City Football Club.
  27. Does anyone know if there is a jon Sheffield goalkeeper academy at Camborne college still? my 10 year son wants to play in goal (and is quite good) and i want him to get trained properly .
