    Agree with Bob's summing up. Outclassed from start to finish by a good side. I'm sure when Andy and Gary got promoted they would have been realistic and know that steam rollering the West Division does not mean you are going to compete with the likes of Tavi, Bodmin and Parkway who chuck 3 figures a game at players in the Prem. Ridiculous but true. I for one who only support the club occasionally these days am delighted to see what money the club has go into the ground improvements with the stand and floodlights etc. Luckily there's a loyal bunch of boys there that ain't interested in the big 💰 too much. If the likes of Bodmin etc want to throw 50 grand at a season to win about 5 tops that's up to them? Good luck to Parkway to be fair who have ambition to take the promotion if achieved and not remain a big fish in a small pond. Each to their own I suppose but I won't disappear from the forum for 3 weeks cos we've had a few bad results 🤔⚽

    Best and worse showers in Cornwall

    Halstetown when they changed and played at the pub , pitch great slope showers , copper tube with holes punched in it , Marazion you could get a nice tingle from one of the pipes , Shirehorse no showers changed in an old barn with leaking roof , Rosudgeon do they still have the meters that take 20p ? Heamoor bone valley horse trough , Gulval , Badgers cross no showers but a lovely big puddle near the changing rooms when it rained , did see a player dragged through this as the team thought he came off the pitch looking to clean , pitch at Tuckingmill , behind church no showers as someone stole the copper pipe , Cubert changed in the community hall, over the hedge to play no showers , Cury did they have showers ? I know a blast from the past with some of these clubs now finished but we didn't care about going back to your opponents pub for drinks and a bite to eat refreshed from a shower you went home after and had a good soak in the bath , well some did some when out on the lash with out going home , old school I know but bloody good fun , Hardly any clubs had a clubhouse and most were attached to a pub who provided food and most away teams came back win lose or draw and you all mixed after the game what happened on the pitch stayed there .

    MattP great comments and attitude towards a fellow club. Nobody wants to call games off, especially when you're in a position to unable to raise a side. You have shown great respect towards Pensilva FC on the forum. Thank you. I'm sure everyone behind the scenes is working very hard to try and keep the club competing at the ECPL level.

    Steve Massey divides opinion for sure but he is unquestionably GOOD for Cornish football. His enthusiasm creates a buzz and he backs his own ability and believes he will deliver a better team at Helston. Many would like to see him fail but more people will watch and have an interest in Helstom because of his personality and involvement. Helston challenging the usual suspects, why not?

    Best showers i recall are at St Ives Rugby Club, which i believe is now home to Halsetown . Worst, i'm probably with Stevieb.. too many old pitches with nothing including my old team Gulval where you had the choice of trough or puddle and then change in the caravan which was a 2 piece unit slowly separating along the apex... Ahhh the joys of the good old days

    A good win for exiles today. Never an easy place to go to get a result. BUT. Insulting Probus players and management like you have is pretty sad. This forum is for results and the game description. You should keep the insults to yourself number 6 and not air it on this forum. You only make yourself and your club look poor. Good luck in the next round.

    Cornishfootball, you might be right, as I have said they are on a roll at present & are going to take some catching! Bodmin have been there many, many times before & got the full trophy cabinet, if Parkway go all the way & win it ( which is looking very likely) then good luck to them.

    Fantastic draw for City!!! Apart from Portsmouth, Blackburn or Bradford and possibly Argyle it couldn’t be better in my opinion. The Valley is a top class stadium with a capacity of 27’000 odd!! They always get 5 figure crowds for home games of which City will get an even share! That will be a decent amount of cash to be fair👍👌⚽️ Hope the players are still on a nice little bonus 😁 Reckon BT Sport could well go for a live game here as well with it being a bit of a fairy story, Cornish football which nobody up the line thinks we can play down here, a club in administration only 5 years ago, could have no ground next season blah blah! 😳 Think the home team comes out of a tv live match a bit better but could be a great money spinner for the club. Could well have been away to Oxford City, Shaw Lane or Heybridge so let’s relish it and get behind the lads. Would love to see a big contingent go up and support City on the day and do Cornish football proud.

    Not sure why this turned into a thread about Torpoint. From my point of view, a squad was pulled together from multiple clubs, and it was great to see the lads all having a laugh and enjoying themselves - a few friendships were forged and previous rivalries forgotten. Some good players in the Cornwall side, with 2-3 real stars on show - we hit the bar, missed 2 sitters, and the score line could (and should) have been closer. Well done to all involved, an enjoyable evening

    SWPL - Tuesday 3rd October 2017

    The groundsman at Bickland Park pleaded with the referee on Saturday not to play the Combination League game as the forecast was for more rain during the afternoon, which it did. However, he insisted in playing the game and as he deemed the pitch playable, the game went ahead. As Older knows, once you cut a pitch up, it takes a lot of work to get it back into a playable condition. AS Falmouth Town do not have the resources of clubs in the football league, there was no way to get it ready for Tuesday night's game. Maybe if some people would like to volunteer to help the groundsman, it might make the task easier.

    Castle United (up Tuckingmill way I think, by the old cinema). Nowhere to park. Bleddy git stank to the field. Changing "facilities" was a tin hut (reminiscent of the Gulval Badgers Cross time), no showers, and you were lucky if your "valuables" (and teeth) were still around after the game (although you sometimes found the odd stud or two lodged in your thigh). Ahhh, the memories.

    Tabby are an unbelievable side, thought we did well for the first 15 mins, but as soon as they scored, we went to pieces for 15 mins and they scored another 3. 4-0 half time, and we couldn't complain. Second half, the wind behind Tavvy, we were camped in our half for the most part, had a couple of chances to score, but again, they were very clinical with their finishing. Their movement and play was what we did to sides last season, harsh reality check for us, but we will be a better side for it today. Not the worst defeat to a Tavi side this season, and something to work on in training. We go again. UP the Sticky

    Derek martin is the man for the job. Known him for years hes the mist underated manager in cornwall. With out a doubt he coukd have managed any club in cornwall. But hes been there and done it now. Hes worked hard to get what he has now enjoying more family time. Cant see him changing that. In my opinion the next best man for the job is Jim Hilton hes a newquay guy and has plenty of respect through out the town. Hes not only a top guy but a top coach. He will have the loyal G boys back playing with a smile in there face and thats whats been missing this year. Hes the best man for the job!!! As for Tan shes a living legend amongst cornish football. She been at the very bottom to the very top in cornish football. Wonderful person too always living life with a smile on her face. Shes put the G on yhe map through hard graft.

    Can't see why all the negativity? There's not always a drama or hidden agenda behind things when a manager resigns from a club. In this case you have Godolphin who over the last ten or fifteen years have been an inspiration to any club wishing to progress up through the leagues and then excel at the top level of Cornish football, a club run by good hard working people and an excellent set of loyal players with the odd diamond like Jamie thrown in. Then you have a manager in Kevin who is nothing short of a lovely guy and ask anyone who knows him for many years in Cornish football and I can't imagine a bad word would or could be said about him. He's also proved he's a very good manager if you look at his record over the years with various clubs. Sometimes things just don't work out as planned and a decision is made. Great to see Kevin and Tanya still having good things to say about each other, nice to see a bit of class and respect shown, and I wouldn't have expected anything different. I'm sure both parties will continue to have success in the future. There does not always have to be a negative story!!! ?⚽️

    You have obviously never managed a football team ... Godolphin FC as a whole were not happy with the position they finished last season, so they wanted someone to bring in some fresh blood & make more competition for places. & I wont even go down the road of players ' just wanting a regular game '. This is peninsular premier league !!!!! That's what you have to do as a club, try & move forward. As for the Plymouth lads, when you watch St Blazey, Ask Toby Chapman & James Baker what they got, but please, stop making up stories, your making yourself look a dickhead.

    Yeah some good players and lads there Ralph 👍⚽️ Yeah glad I was quick in those days mate, not a sitting duck like the last 15 years!! Just had to keep on the move and play off their shoulders, still black and blue most weeks back then though! Not much protection from the refs, the first couple tackles were usually ‘free’ and they would take turns, far better being a striker these days!! You had to virtually mug someone before a ref would get out a yellow card in the eighties and nineties mate!!! A lot of better things these days to be fair, the back pass rule being the best, that was painful if you were 0-1 down with ten to go, all the time wasting. Used to lie in the bath Saturday night counting the cuts and bruises!! Great days though must admit, glad I was about then and lucky to play in some great teams 👍

    St Mawgan 3-3 GSM On the whole a close game, with both teams content to let the other keep the ball at the back and work hard if they wanted to get the ball forward. Gsm went 1 up with a well taken goal from Rory Jarvis following a bit of neat play. St Mawgan replied with a header from a cross from the right, HT. The 2nd half was a bit more open then the first. St Mawgan eventually scoring following a corner through a couple players and between the gks legs. A bit of neat play in the box resulted in a penalty being awarded for a handball from the sliding defender, pen tucked away by Keegan Lloyd. GSM then went ahead following a corner that almost went straight in and sam Bullen was there to tap in from a couple yards. GSM were sure the result was in the bag until a cross came from outside the box, slight deflection took it goalward and a mistake the gk won't want reminding about resulted in the points being shared.

    Yeah spot on that Billy. I've always said having someone like Mass involved in Cornish football can only be a positive thing. I personally enjoyed playing with him as a teenager for Truro City and Cornwall and then later playing for him when he managed the County side. Always ready and willing to offer great advice and you won't find a more enthusiastic football man than Mass. Ultra professional, I remember my Cornwall debut at Sussex and the likes of Sledge, Parrie, Dave G,, and me were sneaking out the fire escape door for an hour or three in a local nightclub while Mass was off to bed at 11 with his crossword in preparation for the match tomorrow afternoon. He just does things right and if the people that are not too sure about him actually got to know him then they would find a top bloke that really knows his football at all levels. I for one am glad he cares about Cornish football.

    If the F.A go through with this it'll be a complete disgrace. Look at the scenes when Tavi beat Taunton. It wasnt just any old win for them. The F.A cup is and should be for all clubs. You could argue what's the point in step 5, step 4 step 3 etc entering. They never win it either. Come on F.A, get a grip and look after clubs at step 6 and 7. Where's Big Al when you need him??

    Absolutely spot on. Nobody cares about the club or the fans. Then you get people who still continue to stick up for the owners. The club will go under, someone will make a few mil & all these years of history will be gone too. Sad times. The worst part is how the die hard fans are treated.
