  1. No, Sam Farrent was on the bench rather surprisingly as for me, apart from Ryan, he has probably been their best player.
  2. I made the trip down with a few other old chaps yesterday to make a day of it. Firstly, what a set up Helston have created down there! The pitch looked fantastic, the surroundings are brilliant and the clubhouse is great. I would argue that Helston have the best set up in the south western league. Well done to all involved. The game itself was a typical cup final, cagey but flashes of great football. What shocked me and no doubt a few others was the Saltash stared the game without Sam Farrent, who for me (in the 10 or so games i have seen) has been one of their best players this season (obviously Ryan Richards goal scoring antics cannot be ignored). To see him on the bench wouldve been a happy sight for Bodmin. Nonetheless, the side was still good enough to give Bodmin a good game, which they did, and for the last 10 minutes it looked like the game would be going to extra time as a Saltahs equaliser looked a matter of when and not if, but it wasn't to be. Hard lines for Saltash, but theycan be proud of what they have achieved this season and well done to Bodmin who add et another trophy to their cabinet. A throughly enjoyable day apart from the travelling, a good game to watch, a fantastic pasty and a really pleasant surprise to discover what Heston have created, so well done to all involved!
  3. not to host a final they dont......
  4. I would be of the impression that quite a lot of clubs offer to host the semi finals and finals each season and why wouldn't every club want to host a big event. It must be frustrating for nost clubs who apply that never get to host anything each year because the same handful get selected each year. Bodmin, St Blazey, Saltash, Wadebridge, Truro, Liskeard. What about other clubs that have made great strides in recent seasons to improve their facilities like, Torpoint, St Dennis, Callington, Wendron. Its greta that Helston get an opportunity this year having put in so much effort over the last few years, however, given the finalists, it may have been a shrewder decision to select somewhere a bit more central. Similarly it was mentioned to me this morning that the other cup final between Exmouth and St Austell is to be held at Crediton, well done to them for getting the final, but again, surely the location could be slightly more central to both sides, somewhere like Parkway, or even Home Park dare i say it? Either way, good luck to all teams in both finals! It's great to see 4 different teams across both finals, when was the last time that happened?
  5. I agree.
  6. Pastyman will be back over to Parkway again next season.
  7. And that rumour is.....
  8. I again, wheeled the wife across the ferry and around to Kimberly Stadium last night to watch what we hoped to be a good game of football between two good sides. It didn't disappoint in the goals section, but some quality was lacking, whether that was down to less than usual standard of the surface or not, i don't know. But what i can say is that it was by no means as one sided as the previous report suggests. Saltash opened the scoring rather fortunately will a wicked deflection, but even after that, Saltash were the better side in the first half and were good value for their slender lead. The 2nd half did belong to Argyle, but they never really opened Saltash up at the back and tested their keeper. So you have to give credit to a Saltash side who looked well drilled, who had a game plan and stuck to it. I don't think you can argue they were overly physical towards Argyle, just beause the Argyle side are youngsters you cannot go easy on them, this is a mens league, so they must acept they will be onthe end of tough tackles, arguably the worst ofthe night was a late chopping down in the middle of the park from the number 6 (Jim Alexander i think he is called), but that was more a professional foul as Argyle were looking to break. The Argyle boys certainly didn't hold back when they had the opportunity to put a tackle in, so fairs fair. A great result for Saltash who showed the form of champions, not playing their best football, but an important win nonetheless. The half time oxo and chips were very nice and reasonably priced too, all in all a good evening.

  11. Thanks for the response. I'm glad it will, terrible tackle and doesn't have a place in our game. Hopefully Dave makes a full and speedy recovery.
  12. Is there any news on the situation with Dave Smith of Torpoint who had his leg broken on the weekend as a result of a nasty tackle? Never nice to see. What happens to the player who got a red card as a result of the tackle (and deservedly so)? As the game was abandoned, does that mean the red card still stands? I hope so!
