    Probus FC would like to apologise to the Trelawny League and Storm FC for fielding an ineligible player on Saturday. It was a genuine mistake, as the individual has represented both teams during the season and due to a misinterpretation of the rules, we believed the ban to be for the club as he was not able to play for either team. After clarification from the CCFA today the ruling is that the player is banned from all Saturday football until the team has played the requisite number of games. We did not knowingly play an ineligible player as we believed the first game of the double header on Saturday to be the final game of the ban. The is the first time that I can recall a mistake like this ever being made and we have been punished accordingly. As someone who holds many roles at the club (including manager, secretary, coach, assistant treasurer, pitch setter up, cleaner and occasion player) I must take full responsibility for the mistake. On another note it certainly made for a entertaining forum topic and discussion point. Tony Penrose Probus FC

    Should play Falmouth in a pre season friendly as a way of an apology maybe? Be a decent gesture from the biggest club in our area 👍⚽️

    Thanks for the kind words guys, just give what I see which ever way it goes, I'm there to support the ref not to influence the game either way. I make mistakes like everyone on the field, but can't understand why anyone would want to cheat. At the end of the day it's amateur football and we are all there for the enjoyment of the game. Of course I want the Well to win, but because of what they do, not what I do. I love the banter and the passion and would say that in general there's more sportsmanship than there is cheating, but we are all aware that it happens. At 55 I'm just happy to be involved and grateful that I can still just about run up and down the line! Without all the linos who give their time for nothing (and there are a lot of very good ones) there would be no game, and in the heat of the moment, that needs to be remembered most of all.

    More interest in a youth game than in your constant moaning and bitching,for sakes give it a rest.

    How do you think any of the youth team feel,or their parents come to that having to read your comment ? No interest in them ? They may as well just stop playing eh ? Every single subject on this forum has you being totally negative in one way or another.And if you thought that was rude you want to get out more ! Maybe go and support your home team instead of slagging them off all the time.

    Congratulations to St Stephen today.it was never going to be for us, didn't feel we played as well as we can, and if you don't create chances then any team will find it hard. Having said that, I feel you deserved the win and showed why you've been in 3 finals, I'm proud of my team because I don't think many others thought we'd get this far, this is nearly a completely new side this season and if we can learn from this today I'm sure we can make days like today a more regular occasion. But once again, congratulations to the manager and players of St Stephen.

    Final league top 3

    Goes to show how much Big Al actually knows about 'his' team! Too busy moaning about another county to bother following them closely!

    What an absolute joke. You can understand (sort of) the Witheridge and Helston fixtures. Travelling miles to a game and some lads just not being bothered about it/working and not being able to make the journey, injuries etc. But this is a pro club... at home. Its not as if they don't have any players or money is it!!! They had 5 coaches up there on the side line the other day when we played them, if it was any other club, they would be playing. You could be damn sure that Milch (Miller) would be putting his kit on if Falmouth could only muster 10 players this evening.

    Cup Finals

    Its the end of a very busy season. Fixtures have been changed, moved altered and pitches have been monopolised, molested and worn out. Just accept where the finals are being played and get on with it. Secretarys were given an opportunity to nominate grounds, its a bit late in the day to start whinging now. Play the games, enjoy the day and lets get this disrupted season out of the way. If you dont like things........join the committee and change it...............otherwise ...........go with your committees`s decisions . Rant over Good luck , enjoy the remainder of the season and enjoy the finals. over and out ( Well done committee) MQx

    Don't often rise to Big A but on this occasion his comment is stupid. The youth are the future of football in the county and deserve the same support as the Senior teams. We'll done to those that have facilitated the chance for the youngsters to have some support. Rant over.

    Think you’ll find Max Gilbert ofBodmin has been captaining the youth side this year and Camelford players have represented the youth side this year something I expect both clubs are extremely proud of these players and have chance to show support to all involved in their big game

    SWPL - Wednesday 2 May 2018

    Credit to Falmouth Town, who Thoroughly deserved their victory last night & will go on now to finish as Cornwall's highest places club this season in the Swpl. As for the game ... Bodmin come second all over the pitch & Falmouth worked their socks off. After recent Victories over some good sides I feel to many games against very good sides in such a short space of time have caught up with us. Looking forward to the summer now ( posted that previous to last night's score) & to also bring you some very big developing news over the next few weeks which could possibly make a few heads turn! Well done Falmouth once again

    I've defended Argyle a few times on this forum, but this is indefensible. There are teams who always struggle this end of the season, that's normal, but when they played 16 year old against Callington, which in my eyes is fine, why can't they do that tonight? The complaint is that the firsts and reserves are playing tomorrow. I get that the first team have a long injury list, but that's why you have reserve and youth teams, for them to supplement each other. Very poor showing and, as a Plymouthian, frankly embarrassing

    I have no idea what Bodmin may have said to the league, but know why the game was brought forward, not that it makes any difference. The Camelford players at the County youth game were wearing their Camels polo's and jackets (fully showered and changed?!?!) - not quite sure how that constitutes 'showboating' as they had travelled straight from the Bodmin game and included three of last years team that got to the national final, who were supporting their former team mates, supporting their keeper Luke and supporting the CCFA by lending their 'caps' for presentations as the ones ordered by the CCFA had not arrived - nice that you appreciated their efforts Brugel.

    Sitting on the beach here in Cyprus with a bit of time on my hands (not saying I’m bored or anything, I’ve been harpooned by green peace twice already 😂 ) reading an article in this months World Soccer mag about VAR. Not sure the World Cup is ready for that yet but it got me thinking what has been the best rule change over the years? For me it’s been the back pass rule, good one if you’re a striker but more importantly keeps the game flowing! Remember being a kid in the early eighties and my dad trying to explain tactics to me, used to do my head in teams a goal up with 5 or 10 to go passing back to the keeper, him picking it up, rolling it out to full backs back on the corner flags and then them passing it back to him!! Remember Ray Clemence being really good at it! Or was it just annoying cos it was Liverpool doing it and they were winning everything back then! Be interested to know people’s favourite change if you’re a bit bored as well? 👍⚽️

    What is your obsession with respect? If they're not breaking any rules they are free to do what they like. Playing against Argyle is exciting for local players and fans, whether they are playing full time professionals or schoolboys. You have to accept that you could be coming up against any of their signed players and try and beat what's in front of you.

    Dave,are you comfortable with this moron's postings? You,presumably,have the power to ban him and consequently do everyone a favour.Why do you persist in allowing him to demean this Forum ?

    Illogan are a good very well run Club with a great setup, at least they stepped up and gave the higher standard a go, knowing what is involved in running a football Club im sure this was the only option to be honest, if they were still just in the combo winning everything people would be slating them for having no ambition !

    Aggie did a great job hosting the game, the pitch looked perfect and it appeared as though everything ran smoothly. Although not sure what the ballboy was doing running onto the pitch!
