    Yeah I think I said I went to the game, so yeah I was actually there. Just my opinion Gareth Davies. I don’t really obviously know much about local football and bow to your greater knowledge by the sounds of it! Could have swore I saw Bodmin hit the post a couple times as well but sounds like they were outplayed! Maybe that bit was when I was getting a cup of tea? I’ll just have to look forward to hearing about Parkway beating Bodmin about 6 or 7-0 then by the sounds of it? Shame I was going to go thinking it might be a close game but might not bother now seeing Bodmin are that bad and Parkway that good.

    Another club folding!?

    Dave the criteria only helps clubs with their own grounds.First questions asked 1. Do you own your own ground. 2 how long a lease do you have. Look around at council facilities and they are steadily getting worse through lack of council budgets.not a dig at the councils if it’s hospitals or schools or old people then they must get priority. Look at the clubs where funding has been given and these clubs with all due respect are not grassroots. Don’t get me wrong as I’ve said before you have to get off your backside and work for it yourself but you have to have willing volunteers and that is where the problem lies, most of these volunteers are getting older and not being replaced and it just gets harder and harder.

    GEACH1 I have said this before so much money has been thrown at youth football and now I think the tide has turned and if the FA are not careful and do not invest in proper grassroots men’s football there will not be enough teams for all the boys coming through

    Another club folding!?

    Ummmm, stop allowing new teams to join the Trelawny League for a few seasons (3 or 4 say). It will not necessarily stop other clubs folding, but it certainly will not make the situation worse. What did we have this year, 8 new teams voted into Division 4 (with 1 not being allowed), and so far, 3 teams folding....

    Very sad news, to hear a great club like Chacewater fold. Smashing bunch of lads. Played with dignity on Saturday. Have the greatest respect for them. Nigel Jewell a true gent.

    Some fool trying to get some bait? No, leedsunited, just calling it as I saw it. I was covering the game for two different papers back in Dorset as that's where I am from originally. Been in Cornwall for nearly a year now so slowly getting to know the set-up and I've been doing some freelance work, mainly for the St Austell Voice since the Spring. If I'm up at Bodmin again covering either St Austell or Sticker then you must come and introduce yourself. Here's the piece I did for the Bournemouth Daily Echo: http://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/sport/15629299.Brown_proud_as_Swans__heroic_FA_Vase_run_comes_to_an_end/

    2-3 new faces on the management and committee with pretty much a complete new team of players. with sponsorship and the backing of the local pub we are now in a much healthier placer than before.

    Agree totally with above comment. We at TMS did not get voted in this year to Div 4 but kept all players with a Sunday league side.....hoping based on this we will get a second team in Div 4 next season for Saturday football ⚽️👍

    Another club folding!?

    We (Perranwell) formed a new team this summer and were voted into the league, last season the first team on numerous occasions had to many players, some went to play for other teams but helped us out when needed, we had ex players showing a interest in playing again, and with youth level players making the transition into men’s football we decided to reform the Reserves again. We have had a very good start to the season, with squads of 12/13 each week and players stepping up to the 1st team when required or on merit. To my knowledge we haven’t folded any clubs within our catchment area, so to say no to any new teams joining the league is shortsighted as each new club/team will have different reasons and agendas for joining. Sorry to see Chacewater fold, we have had many a good game against them and hope they regroup and join the league again soon.

    Cedric Newell "Sam" Real

    Just read on Twitter that Helston legend Sam Real has passed away. Mostly a one club man, save for a short spell at Truro, he was one of the most reliable keepers of the 1950s and 60s and was a Cornwall regular too.

    Very sad news indeed. I heard lots about him from my Dad who introduced me to him just the once. Lovely man who made a great contribution to football during his era. Condolences to his family and friends.

    would also add to "having enough money to do so" by saying having enough money to make alterations to make the gradings in the league above

    The match at Bolitho on Boxing Day is shaping up to be a very big fixture (just hope the weather plays along), Tavvy have certainly gone under the radar with all the attention (deservedly) on Parkway. They have built a strong side over the past few seasons with a core of very good players in Josh Robins, Dan Evans, the Daw brothers , Jack Crago and Dave Hallett. Would be interesting to hear if Tavvy also have promotion ambitions.

    FA Cup

    I got odds of 7/1 for Truro City to win the tie after 90 minutes - £5k went on that , then a cheeky £1k on TCFC winning the FA Cup at 10,000/1. Winning the cup would be the biggest thing to ever happen to Cornish football, and at 10,000/1 it would seem unlikely - but with some decent home draws and bit of lady luck, who knows?

    Well said Mark. Just some fool trying to get a bait...both played enough football to know the end result is all that matters As far as us going to get beat....every other side has been beat there this season so if we did there would be no shame there Gareth Davies

    Another club folding!?

    These were my exact thoughts also. The really disappointing thing is that Chacewater, a club that has been around for such a long time and has so much history about it has felt that there is no other option but to fold... a club like Chacewater just shouldn’t have to do that.

    It's all about money, or the lack of it. The FA have loads of money - however, they seem loath to part with it. This places a massive burden on clubs, especially the ''smaller'' ones. Cannot agree with this statement. The FA Stadia Improvement Fund will financially support ground improvements to help clubs achieve required ground grading requirements with both CCFA and SWPL representatives on hand to help and support the application process. What's more clubs can apply for further funding every 5 years. Acknowledge a percentage of match funding is required, however other outlets are available to help secure this rather than it specifically having to be funded by a respective club

    SWPL - Wednesday 1st November 2017

    Reckon it's going to be a tough night at Saltash for the Mints.... Still, it's one of the few night games I can get to from Teignmouth, and get back by public transport. Though, it is about 1am when I actually get through my door... I couldn't do that even from Cullompton, or Witheridge.

    I think if Parkway finish top 3 and get promoted, it will be "job done".

    '''Tis a difficult conundrum Soccerkid. We all know that there are somewhat less level 6 competent players than are needed to fill all the S.W.P.L. Premier Division squads. Therefore if you don't pay players at the going rate you end up with a squad of second or third rate players and end up relegated (albeit with a smart level seven standard ground that you spent all your pennies on) and if you do pay your players and avoid mandatory relegation, you get sent down anyway because you spent all the cash needed for upgrading, on players. For those without massive sponsorship deals or a sugar daddy all roads lead to oblivion.

    Vets 22nd/29th Oct

    ROYAL PAR (1) 3 White 34’ Drew 65’ Hague 82’ WENDRON (0) 2 Pascoe 68’ Hughes 86’ Wandered down the hill to Par running track to catch up with some old mates on both teams (I drove actually, even though it’s only half a mile!! Calf still agony from last week) and saw a decent cup tie to keep the 6 crowd in attendance enthralled. I counted both of myself as 2 as well!! 😳 Par are a much improved outfit these days but when I saw the Wendron line up with Scoffy in goal, Pottsy at the back, Hughesy and Bambi in midfield, Mikey out wide right and Dom up front amongst others I must admit I fancied an away win. Par then proceeded to take the game to the visitors and Scoffy had to be on his toes to keep out efforts from the lively Cameron Hague and Wayne Drew. There was more bad news for Wendron after 25 minutes when they lost Dom with a hamstring injury and their best source of goals. The hosts deservedly took the lead after 34 minutes when Neil White got on the end of a bad pack pass to slot past Scoffy. The second half was more end to end and the hosts after a decent ten minute spell of pressure doubled their advantage after 65 minutes when man of the match Drew broke the offside trap and lobbed home from the edge of the area although Pottsy made a valiant attempt to clear on the line lashing it into the roof of the net. The visitors got back into it five minutes later when Mikey Pascoe ran on to a through ball to bend a side foot finish around Dave Holley in the home goal. The visitors forced several corners but Holley was punching away well and Ryan Morcom clearing with strong headers but Nigel Brabyn missed a header I’ve seen him score dozens of times in his Perranwell days from a pinpoint Mikey corner. The tie was clinched 8 minutes from time when Cam struck a superb left foot shot from just outside the area past Scoffys outstretched glove and inches inside the far post. That though wasn’t the goal of the game though as Wayne Hughes rolled back the years to send a 30 yard curler into the net when he spotted Dave out of position after he had saved from an earlier attack. It made the last couple of minutes interesting but the ref blew right on the final whistle to end the contest. Game played in great spirits by two good sets of lads and well reffed. Enjoyed it 👍⚽️
