Junior Cup Final

9 posts in this topic

Best wishes to Duchy Premier sides St Stephen & St Minver  meeting each other in the Junior Cup Final on Friday. Unfortunately a prior engagement will prevent me attending. 

Hope you enjoy your very special Friday evening 

The two sides, who will possibly finish the season as champions and runners-up, are yet to meet in the League - could be an interesting end to the season.

 

Cornwall Junior Cup Sponsored by Bond Timber

St Stephen v St Minver

Lux Park, Liskeard Athletic

Friday April 21st

Kick Off - 7:30pm

Entry Fee - £4 Adult £2 U16 and Concessions

Apparently the junior cup was played Friday night!!!.........although you would hardly know. Not a single match report or comment on the game.....not even a referee comment which seems to be the rather annoying trend these days!

 

For anyone interested St Miniver beat St stephens 3-1 (according to the county website) is it time to go back to the old format east v west played on Easter Monday prior to the senior cup final???? Might generate more interest for the county showpiece match for the lower leagues

You would say that coming from the west lol. Although i only played the old format i think the new one is better.  Chance to play teams from the other side of the county that you wouldn't get normally.  

As for the final, there was only one team in it.  Not a bad game in front of a fair size crowd.  St minvers 3rd goal worthy of winning any game.

Got to go back to Easter Monday b4 the senior final.  Bigger crowds better atmosphere. What were the ccfa thinking.

Ok Dave. Didn't know that.  Strange decision . A Friday evening for a county final. Got to be the bank holiday Monday for me.

I think that is probably a bit of a misleading, over simplification of the survey.

I don't have total recall (of anything really) but seem to think the response was only about 60% and of those only about 60% wanted 'the Junior Cup Final on a different day to the Senior Cup Final'  -  so that is basically only about 36% of the clubs in favour.

But I'm pretty sure the question wasn't  - 'do you want the Junior Cup Final on a Friday night ?'

 This is only from memory so hopefully someone will correct me if I have any of the facts wrong.
