    The Way Too Early Transfer Rumour Thread

    I must be a mug then, I have been doing it for the last 3 years! Some people do it for love not money!

    From past experience, squad announcements are only the start of it. Things tend to shake out as pre-season goes on, then into the start of the season as players don't get the game time they expected/were promised, or the signings for the rest of the squad don't materialise. Used to love the supplement that the Indy produced at the start of each season (would be good to see it back, hint), it was entertaining to spot the players appearing in multiple team groups.

    Celebrating Kimmo's 20th Season - Football, Fundraising, Friends, Memories A massive thank you to everyone who supported the charity day at Enys Parc celebrating Kimmo's 20th Season! We raised a fantastic £1200 which was today donated to 3 Cornish Charities close to our hearts and club. £400 Mermaid Breast Cancer Centre £400 The Cove (Prostate Cancer) £400 Merlin MS Centre A tremendous amount of money which demonstrates what a great force for good football can be! I will do a proper press release if anyone wants it but a resume of the day is as follows. There were two matches the first a mixed up game between members of St Agnes AFC Ladies and Men the score 3-3. The second match saw St Agnes AFC Bolster Veterans take on St Agnes AFC Legends featuring players from across the last 20 years the score 4-0 to The Legends! A minutes applause was held with flowers placed around the ground to remember those loved and lost over the last 20 years. Volunteer referees Kevin Knowles and George Pattison refereed one game each and played in the other! Great spirit and thank you both! The auction was a lively affair and the event rounded off with Kimmo recounting some memories largely about winning and embarrassing stories about players across the years! Thank you to everyone who took part, played, donated or supported in anyway it really meant a lot to Martyn! The day was really well supported and attended thank you everyone so much and i hope anyone who couldn't make it can catch him somewhere in his next and 21st Season! (There are a few photos on the Combo Facebook page.)

    Frogpool & Cusgarne has club reshuffle.

    Frogpool & Cusgarne has club reshuffle. After Nick Mallaber’s resignation at he end of last season, Frogpool & Cusgarne have taken multiple steps into reshuffling the club so that it is in a strong place for next season. Long-term committee member Lee Booker has been appointed as Chairman, Michelle Mallaber will continue her role as treasurer while Dan Templeton will take over as fixture secretary, Shaun Smith as registration secretary and Tim Edwards as minutes secretary. As far as management is concerned, Dan Templeton will be running the first team following the second team’s title winning campaign last season. However, he will be accompanied by loyal friend Tom Gall who will step up as co-manager. The club are pleased to announce that Darren Meagor will be running the second team alongside a new management team. The club also welcomed many new faces onto the committee and we are really excited for next season. Pre-season starts on Wednesday July 4th, 6:30 at the Richard Jory Playing Field where everyone is welcome. Due to all the changes, we are very sorry to cancel our annually five-a-side tournament. However, we look forward to going again next year. Nick Mallaber will be staying amongst the committee, and the club would like to reiterate its gratitude for his tireless work.

    Parkway has close links with Cornwall due to geographical proximity. Lots of the players have played for Cornish clubs. 5 of Parkway’s preseason games are against Cornish clubs. Parkway’s ground is named after a Cornish novelist. Plymouth is the main socioeconomic hub for southeast Cornwall. However none of this really matters as this is just a forum. Why would you care? Do you want the forum to close through lack of support? I look forward to engaging with members of the Cornish football community.

    MOUSEHOLE AFC - The Endorsed Cup

    Looks very impressive, far to advanced/superior for what we have to offer in Cornwall, well done Mousehole on getting such an attractive, high quality tournament. A great advert for football down in West Cornwall. I been informed Callum Elliot is taking the reigns next season, still relatively young & boosts a good footballing CV with Heart of Midlothian in Scottish Premier League, ( not talking minnows of Scottish football here! ) Any players wanting to develop down West Cornwall couldn't ask for a better leader/teacher. Good luck.

    Was a great day and good fun to play in as well. Some players still have it! Some players never had it!!

    Penzance not paying expenses this season either! Any cash raised is going towards the improvements needed to progress to Step 6 in 2019/20. Great to see so many ex-players returning to the club.

    There is no Western league forum! Last year this forum almost closed down. A strong percentage of users on this forum are Parkway supporters. Keeping them would help this forum to remain viable. A western league page would be a good idea. Yes I know Plymouth is not in Cornwall but it obviously has strong links with the county. If you didn’t have a few Devonians to moan at, things might get very boring very quickly.

    Great move for Cody Dave! The ground only 8 miles from the bro and sis in laws so will pop over and watch him next season. Tom Owen-Evans signed for Falkirk as well, half hour up the road. Both lovely little new stadiums, hope the lads do well, no more than Cody deserves after his performances last season. Watched a lot of Scottish football and I reckon he will do really well. Tom next maybe!? 🤔

    Torpoint Athletic are pleased to announce the new management team of Callum Bays and Dominic Smith for the upcoming 2018-19 campaign. Callum is a long serving member of the Club and was assistant to the outgoing manager, Justin Norman. Dominic joins the Club from Rame Peninsula having taken over the reigns for the final months of their season. I'm sure it'll be another strong campaign for Torpoint in the Duchy Premier.

    ha ha saying players wont move for money ? of course they do . the only reason most stay at a club for long time without money is they normally have their mates playing and scared to make a move to team they do not know anyone or are loyal to the manager . soon as one jumps tho and boasts about getting paid to play the rest will follow . no chance now of keeping a team together without splashing money to keep your best players

    The Way Too Early Transfer Rumour Thread

    Always makes me smile when the ££ argument raises it's head 4/5 times a year. I have been at Mousehole for the last 3 season's and not taken £1 from the club. The team we had in my 1st season when we did the double, was just a great squad, that all happened to be friends and played for each other rather than a packet. If I was leaving Mousehole for the money, it certainly wouldn't have been to PZ All the best to Mousehole for the season

    Can assure everyone that no players got paid to play football at Mousehole last season, so if they are being offered anything to play for Penzance, of course it will be more than they were getting at Mousehole, however, knowing the Penzance chairman, I don’t think they are moving for the money. maybe a chance for Ezra’s newest puppet, the new General Manager of Mousehole to explain the mass exodus, because I’m sure he will know. 🤣😂

    Parkway are still involved in the SW Peninsula with their next competitive match in the Charity Bowl. They were very complimentary to Falmouth in both games this season and in the game at Bolitho a number of supporters waited patiently after 'Westy'warm down' to applaud them off the pitch.

    Long way to pop home to see his old muckers now Older, still I suppose you had a clause in his contract for a percentage if he made it as a professional. I did hear that Penryn were playing St Mirren in a pre season friendly. Whoops sorry it was St Merryn.

    ECL AGM propsal

    It just amazes me, not just this posting but on others, how members on this forum having a pop at Leagues on how they are being run and what they would do to rectify the problem. Last winter was horrendous with bad weather, clubs folding and team not playing fixtures. Members have got their wish to have a cornwall league. Will it get better, time will tell. My point, if members think they can do a better job, then put your name forward for the vacant secretary positions at the Duchy and ECPL league. I am sure they will appreciate your knowledge and contributions.

    Not a chance could Celtic hold their own in the Premier League over a 38 game season. Great atmosphere, yes, especially in European games and old firm derbies but they would certainly struggle in the Premier League due to a severe lack of quality players required for that standard.

    .. 21 June 2018 St Mirren sign Cody Cooke SMFC Webteam Saints News St Mirren is delighted to announce that Cody Cooke has joined the club from Truro City. The 25 year-old striker has signed a two-year deal with Alan Stubbs' side and follows fellow V9 Academy player Josh Heaton in joining the Buddies.

To get a call from Alan was something that I was just delighted about. I feel ready for the test and it should be an exciting one." Alan Stubbs said: "Cody I know from the V9 and he did well there. He has a real good work ethic about him, had a good season last season. "I'm excited. It's a great opportunity for him and we'll help him to succeed here as much as we possibly can."
