  1. Everyone loves a bit of gossip. What local speculations have you heard? Is it true that Mabe and Penwith are joining to become Mabe Exiles?
  2. Congratulations to both @West Cornwall FC and @wazza1999 of Pendeen. Deserved promotion over the duration of the season. Good to see Pendeen back in Combination football. They've got a good set of boys down there and pleased for the likes of Wayne and Glenn etc who have stuck with them through some tough years to regroup and come strong again. Decent little set up and I hope that they have the ambition to get the clubhouse up and running again down there. The club has a great deal of potential. As for West Cornwall, it's good to see a new side in the Combination League. Again, a strong season and they deserve it. I know they've put in a lot of hard work this season with their playing facilities etc. I think it's a good thing. The higher up you go the better the facilities will be, and although it may seem like a pain at the time, the more you do the more proud you will be! Great from them - they've showed how a newly formed club should go about their business. Formed less than 10 years ago, they've stuck together, added to their squad, strengthened, progressed through the league, added a reserve team and have reached the promise land of the Combination League. Teams newly formed could take a leaf out of their book and follow their model so that they then don't fold again a couple of years after forming. Hope to join you this time next year - after we get promoted, not you getting relegated!
  3. Overrated. He's just a one ball wonder.
  4. Congrats to all league winners and those that successfully won promotion too. Remember that the Trelawny reports are in the Subday Independent for the last time this season!
  5. I'm aware that there are a few fixtures to be played, but our Trelawny sides have now all finished their seasons so I'd like to take the moment to hand out a few thank you's. Firstly to all sides this year, The Trelawny League is improving week after week, and season after season. It's gone from strength to strength and in a few seasons it will be a great set up, in fact - that has been recognised with several awards going to the Trelawny League. Well done to all league winners, especially the ones we were involved with. CSM in the Prem, Penwith in Div 2 and New Inn Titans of Div 4. All worthy and deserved winners. Good luck to those in promotion and especially those hopin for promotion to the Combination League. Thanks to all clubs who have visited the Underlane this year, we hope you have enjoyed it and we hope that next year not so many leave with three points. Thank you to all of the officials who officiated our fixtures this year. You are the most hated men but the most important. I can't think back to many poor referring performances I've witnessed this year and I really believe that referring standards and respect is on the up. I hope that continues to happen and that next year there is more recognition of that. Thank you to all of our players for representing Wendron United FC this season and to all of our 'officials' for giving up their time to run the club and to help win Cornwall's Groundsman of the Year award for 2017. Lastly, I want to thank all of the Trelawny committee. The dedication and commitment you show to the job is endless and admirable. I know that myself, as well as others I imagine, have pestered you about this and that but each time you have been prompt, helpful and polite in your responses. We are lucky to have a great committe for our league in what is often and thankless task. From Gerald for the seemingly impossible job of arranging fixtures, to Paul for somehow getting games officiated and to the legend that is @Steve Carpenter! Enjoy retirement and thanks for all he help you've given me over the past few seasons. Be sad to see you go and they will be big shoes to fill! Thanks to you all, and those I have left out! Enjoy your 'break'. Wendron United FC
  6. We hosted CSM tonight in our final match of the season. Really good performance from us, resulting in a 2-1 win for ourselves. CSM are great bunch of boys, can't knock them. Know they had a few out but still a strong side. Great for us to get a few of our u16s a taste of men's football, putting in some great performances too. Well worked goal finished by Ben Coleman in the first half, had one that looked to have crossed the line in a scramble but can't blame the ref as I didn't think it had either. Went 2 up after some great build up play, which was finished with the defender lobbing the ball over his keeper in one of the best live own goals I've seen. CSM pulled one back from a scuffed corner that was bundled home. Extremely well refereed by Paul Murphy - thanks to him for stepping in - top ref and man! Although he didn't give us a stonewall pen 😉 Enjoy your 'off season' all!
  7. Wait until you get a girlfriend @Tempo!
  8. @ballsax what are your views on that?
  9. Apart from when he told me Pendeen won't be promoted... Felix is quality and manages to be a third of the size of Dom Pullen but move a third less than he does!
  10. Congrats to Jake and the CSM boys! A very tidy outfit with a core of some excellent footballers. I hope that they all bugger off home and get real jobs rather than being sponging students next year as they've been far the best team in the league this season. We've run them close a couple of times this year and look forward to hosting them in our final league game next Wednesday. Yes @Sijames, CSM play at our top pitch in Rame.
  11. 16-18 tops with all the cups etc. Already the last leagues to finish their seasons. Combo has 20 and struggles, that's with less cup competitions too.
  12. Interested on this one and how it may work. Dissent currently varies from official to official so there needs to be clear white and black with no grey as to what dissent is. I think it could just be solved with stricter and firmer referring with appropriate cards for the severity of what is said. 10 minutes is an awful long time in football, over 10% of a match. It could mean several tactical changes within a game and teams sitting back and containing a side, resulting in negative or boring football. I'm interested to see it in practice but I have more reservations. I think that there just needs to be a line that everyone knows about, one that doesn't vary from ref to ref, and if that line is crossed then suitable punishment in terms of a yellow or red card is given. And what happens if a manager is penalised for dissent. Does he have to go to the changing rooms or behind a hedge for ten minutes? Who polices the time a player is off the pitch for? Say three or even two players were sin binned at different but overlapping times, it causes an awful lot of time keeping for the official?
  13. Wendron United FC are delighted to announce that Jack Greenwood has committed to Wendron for next season. In Jack we have a great coach, tactician and up and coming young manager. Jack has continued to bring the whole club forward and next year we aim to progress once more with the overall goal in becoming a force in Cornish Football. Furthermore, we are extremely happy to announce that Mike O'Neill is making the transition from player to assistant manager within the club. Mike brings in his great football brain, knowledge and experience of the game and his motivational attitude. He is a well respected and admired player at this level and certainly within West Cornwall. We hope everyone enjoys their break. We would like to thank our sponsors for this season, our supporters and all those who have hosted us or visited The Underlane this season. Pre season commences on 20th June, which we will post about in due course.

  15. Can I just squash any rumours (as far as I am aware anyway) linking Harry with ourselves. As far as I'm aware, Harry took over Carharrack as a project to get them into SWPL, I may be wrong. The biggest challenge after winning the league is the year after in defending it! Ed Wilton is obviously a top player, but I believe he is off for a bit. He made his step into men's football at Wendron and featured alongside several of today's first and second team squads, as well as alongside our first team and second team managers. Ourselves, in recent years, have gone through quite a quick conveyor built of managers with Rob Watt, Craig Martin, Paul Murray, Stu Massey, Charlie Davis and now Jack Greenwood all taking charge over the last few years - so for us it would be nice to get a few years of consistency. With Jack with have a very qualified football brain who the players and club officials respect and who is taking the club forward on and off the pitch. Like any team, we will hope to strengthen each of our teams (SWPL Div 1 West, Trelawny Prem, Trelawny 2 and Trelawny 4) in the summer and invite anyone along to pre season training (which is far too early to discuss).
