    Sticker Forever

    Sticker 0 Tavistock 8

    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 🤔⚽

    What a relief, for a moment I thought you meant that the old misery from Bodmin was going on a day trip!

    I would just like to say a massive thank you on behalf of st just football Club, to all the helpful people involved at goonhavern football club, when helping out our player scott meagor today in what can only be described as a freak accident. The help he received in the 2&1/2 hours whilst waiting for an ambulance was amazing and as a club we can't thank you enough!! We have just had an update from the hospital and he has a clean break to the tib and fib and he is in a full cast awaiting his operation. 🙏 for a speedy recovery!

    Yeah pleasure for you Dave just give me a shout mate 👍 On the pen subject I think if a player has made an honest attempt to block the shot and its hit his hand and the ref deems it a penalty then a pen and a yellow if you have to is punishment enough I think and common sense refereeing. If a defender dives full stretch across his goal line and tips a goal bound shot over the bar then that to me is a red card and a pen. Think the refs shouldn’t have the pressure of the laws rammed down their throat so much. I think the best refs I’ve come across over the last 40 odd seasons in football are ones that you can talk to and use common sense. Just an opinion really. Still shocked ABBA caused all that trouble yesterday though! Benny was a right nutter apparently!!! 😂

    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 .

    Argyle are in the league and were voted in. They can play their full first team if they want and break no rules. Get over it, its good to have a professional team in the league (2 if you include Parkway). When I was playing it was great to play for or against Argyle, Torquay or any other league club. Its football, get a life and enjoy !

    ECPL St Blazey v Plymouth Parkway

    The return fixture is scheduled for Saturday 18th November - The Parkway lads have had a whip round and had a pennant made especially for the lad that got injured last week.

    Thankful we had a game to watch at all today with all the incessant rain. Wishing no disrespect I cannot go along with various comments that this was a poor game. The officials took a lot of stick both pitch-side and on social media. Lets be perfectly honest, both clubs under the experienced tactical leadership of Mr Hobbs and Mr Gilbert will both be totally clued up on how to milk any given situation. Would you like to referee two sides who continually shout, crowd, scream and flop on the floor ? I wouldn't. Both clubs can play top class non league football, if they'd stuck to the football we would have avoided the stop-start inquests and all the negativity. Putting things in perspective it was still a bloody good football match and a fine credit to the SWPL. I certainly enjoyed it anyway. Parkway are good this season there is no doubting that but Bodmin could so easily have took the spoils here. The absolute game breaker was when Bodmin , down to 10 men for an undeserved sending off broke forward in the second half, they were still 1-2 up at this stage intricate deft passing in the Parkway 18 yard area gave Adam Carter a nailed on open goal to put Bodmin Town1-3 up and probably out of sight... unfortunately for Mr Gilbert the so called tap in from Hit Man Carter hit the post. Parkway immediately stormed up the pitch on a vast wave of relief and duly equalised. In a nutshell, game over. Bodmin visibly drained despite the shouts from Jake Ash that "we'll still get chances". Parkway increased the lead and a few toys went out the pram from the Bodmin bench, possibly justified, possibly not? Mr Gilbert got into a ding-dong argument with Ex Bodmin now Parkway keeper Kyle Moore which Ex Bodmin now Parkway wing back Sam Hillson intervened upon, he received the same short colourful shrift from the Bodmin boss as his keeper had. The game all ended rather ugly which was a shame as there had been some really good football put on from these two classy SWPL sides. A competitive good quality FA Vase tie. They're probably the best of mates back in the bar.

    FA Cup

    The TISA Boys were a bit better organised than that. We left Truro at 06.15 up the 303 with a stop off at Popham Airfield for a full English (highly recommended) then on to the Rose of Denmark by 12.30 an old fashion boozer 5 minutes walk from the ground where we met up with the Exiles and mingled with the very friendly Charlton supporters. The landlord was very grateful of our custom and let us leave our minibus in his carpark free of charge. After a few pints of London Pride and watching the Spurs Palace game, (didn't see SS anywhere) we decended onto the ground 15 minutes before the ko. I was suprised to see so many supporters several of them wearing London Cornish shirts. The atmosphere was fantastastic and although Truro did not deserve to win but on another day could easily have come away with a replay. After celebrating with the players behind the goal after the game even though we lost then it was back to the minibus down the 303 again to the Groom and Jockey at Hevitree Exeter for some food Curry/Chinese and a couple more pint, arriving back in Truro approx 12.30. A memorable day which will long last in the memory.

    I've changed my opinion of him big time. He is doing more for Cornish football than most on here who love to give a little dig or have a moan.

    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.

    I think every team in the league rulings have to have a qualified ref in there ranks and that they MUST be used in the case of game that has no allocated ref whether one team does the 90 or split in half each .. this is done in various other sports and works really well

    Travelling is a weak excuse in my eyes. People dont think twice about crusing about in the evenings etc, if you want to play football for a side, the travelling has nothing to do with it, it because you want to play for that club and should be the fact you want to play to the highest standard you can and not just be a big fish in a little pond!

    Some more Referees would be useful, nowhere near enough to go 'round. Oh goodness, look, there's a Referees course on next month, a chance for all you guys who can't watch a game because there's no official to learn how to get to watch games up close and personal. If you're about to retire from playing, don't hang up your kit, just change it for a classy black one!

    Why would it be in anybody's interest to fix anything to do with Cornish football? Absolutely ridiculous. Camelford cup fixtures this year, Helston H then Tavi A Wendron A then Mousehole A now St Ives A just luck of the draw nothing more nothing less.

    That's a bit harsh digger, most of us don't hate Bodmin per se, just certain boastful individuals who can't stop harping on about their achievements (which, we note, do not include being promoted)!

    FA Cup

    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.

    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 and worse showers in Cornwall

    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

    Oops. How very dare you, go 'round checking up on the rules, and then expecting them what made them to abide by them. Shame on you!

    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.

    Simply to make sure we have a ref and a match. Both clubs keen, cleared with league and ref in place.

    Perhaps the lack of Queens English eminating from the home dugout area, is reflected in the lack of support from fans who find it offensive. That explanation was offered to us by an EX Bodmin fan, who did not want to be associated with such language, and now reluctantly watches his football elsewhere !

    Let's just clarify something before it gets a little bit stupid... I've spoken to Chris on the phone and I even told him that the rules clearly state that a player must be registered using a "competition registration form". By not signing a blank piece of paper, St Ives Mariners have done nothing wrong. It is very unfortunate but there's no point everyone getting on the St Ives Management teams back when all they have done is abide by League rules? Chris stated he'd messed up by not taking any forms but unfortunately this is just one of those things. It is unfortunate that the player couldn't play but I tell you something... St Agnes will not make this mistake again. I'm pretty sure that Chris has already put registration forms in his cars glove compartment to prevent this from happening again. Footballing God x

    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....

    Guys - games involving 10 Cornish Prem teams and 11 West teams and yet out of 32 posts only 5 match reports featuring Camels, Sticker/Saltash, St Blazey/ Dobwalls, St Dennis/Bude and a bit about Bodmin game!!! We all have teams we like but personally I would like to hear how all the team did - not just having a pop at each other?

    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.
