    SWPL - Saturday Feb 17 2018

    Great result for us today away at Cullompton......had only 12 players then young max had to pull out in the warm up feeling ill so had to play with no sub’s!! But the lads fought hard on a very wet soft pitch and we scored 2 great 2nd and 3rd goals plus young Zak pulling out an amazing save at the score 2-1!! I’m one very proud captain today!! 😊👍⚽️

    Pitch was playable. St Agnes players were there last week but were definitely not getting changed.

    Holmans 5 -3 st just Good result today youngsters played superb and weren’t going to be bullied also Dave Dodson outstanding refereeing only one boss out there in the middle and his surname never ended in Curnow. Great goal for st just youngster as well but after conceding an early poor goal we hit 4 to bounce back to lead 4-1 ht After the break we started to get a little complacent around the pitch and allowed st just back to 4-3 with 20 to go it could of been a difficult afternoon however the lads had more in the tank & with 8 mins to go put us back at 5-3 to see the game out. Off the bottom for the first time this season let’s hope the lads can now catch Redruth Utd with 3 pts adrift & 5 games in hand many more points are needed.

    With no game today we took in the quarter final of the Junior Cup in what turned out to be a 13 goal thriller at St Stephen. Have to say that St Stephen were worthy winners over what looked like a depleted Holywell (only 12 players). The home side looked like they were going to score at will in the first half and had an early goal disallowed and missed numerous other chances before going in to the interval 3-1 up. With the visitors playing with only one up front St Stephen's experienced centre half pairing of Joe Stone and Lee Whetters were rarely troubled. The floodgates opened in a second half 'goal fest' and witnessed 9 goals - a further 6 for St Stephen - inc. 2 penalties and 3 for Holywell including arguably the goal of the game for their 2nd on 81 mins. Holywell were also reduced to 10 men late in the game for St Stephen's first penalty on 70 mins. Overall St Stephens were always in control and were never threatened apart from a late flourish from Holywell in second half injury time. Good luck to St Stephens in the semi-final.

    I know wearne was cup tied for the senior Cup, earlier in the season. Now waiting for the new excuse for playing him. It would be unlike Falmouth to load up for the bigger games 😅

    Ivybridge 1-5 Parkway A routine win for Parkway as they go marching on. A couple of cracking goals from Mike Smith and Ryan Lane. Also, who was Ivybridge's number 12? I'm pretty sure I saw him in Pizza Hut last night.....and it showed!

    For anybody interested on money spent on the Hall for Cornwall project. Below is who has contributed and how much. Article copied from Cornwall Live website. Hall For Cornwall project overview The project cost is £19.8m. To date, it has raised just over £18m; nearly £15m has been secured from outside Cornwall. Funds have been secured from the following; • Arts Council England: £5m • Cornwall Council: £3.19m • European Regional Development Fund (ERDF): £2.1m • Heritage Lottery Fund: £2.85m • HM Treasury: £2m • Local Enterprise Partnership: £2m • Trusts and Foundations/donations: £1m £1.7 million is outstanding and this will be raised through a combination of private fundraising, crowdfunding and via trusts and foundations. Recent support has come from private and corporate donations, including the Alex Patrick Trust.

    I'm led to believe that Holmans offered a qualified referee (although he had not registered this year) to take charge of the game, St Just declined. St Day declined the offer from Mawnan to reverse the fixture... That's two more games that have been lost [needlessly]. There will be more still, I'm sure. With the recent news coming from the league, you would think that the club's will do what they can to try and get these games played. The most important thing at this level is ensuring that the players get a game, surely? My personal opinion, again.

    Difference was last week it was playable till it started pissing down with rain you knuckle dragger. In answer to your question yes it was, cut marked, and basking in glorious sunshine. This week (according to st day official Twitter) VP pitch 2 was playable at 8:00 am then not at 10:45 am after 2 3/4 hours of sub tropical weather.

    Polperro 0 Torpoint 5 We couldn’t live with a full strength Torpoint today, too many of ours didn’t fancy the battle but Torpoint were on a different level.

    After turning over Sticker; Penwith Excels face Torpoint in their Semi Final. If they can find the right formula on the day we might need a calculator to keep score against Torpoint. I make the Excels favourites to lift the cup.

    Redruth Res vs Four Lanes called off. both teams there kitted up and warmed up and ready to go. One corner of the pitch deemed unfit game off by the ref. Cracking day for football wasted. Roll on the cricket season

    I spoke with our secretary who told me, after speaking with the league, that we was not going to be able to get a ref and that Holmans needed to know before 11 if the game was on or off. So he called it off. No mention of a stand in ref to myself during the conversation. Thanks for your opinion though. None of us want to call games off needlessly - I'm going to have to go and watch St Buryan with a crate of beer now. Disaster.

    St Stephen or Sticker for us, most likely Sticker will be on for certain, so we'll end up there.

    In that case it would appear that fixtures would be more localised and would not involve any more safaris into deepest Devon. Remains to be seen.

    Thought the game was free to enter - no refunds were given when it was called off at half time earlier in the season.

    Perhaps all Cornish Sports Clubs should ask Cornwall Council for financial help. If they help S4C, this will set a precedent.

    Trelawney League Cups Cancelled?

    Are we to assume that all Trelawny clubs will now withdraw from the Junior Cup in order to ease this unfathomable fixture pile up...?
