    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.

    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

    Cally v Parkway

    Enjoyed my jaunt to the Marsh last night. Busy clubhouse with a good contingent making the trip from Plymouth Bit damp early on but the pitch stood up pretty well. Hobbs was up to his old tricks slamming in a glorious opener as early as the second minute. The expected first half onslaught never happened, Cally battled hard and despite a few wobbles went in 0-1 at the break. A good effort. Just like buses you wait over 40 minutes then 6 goals all come at once. Parkway slid up a couple of gears second half and left Cally at the traffic lights. Finished 1-7 and to be brutally honest it could have been plenty more during that second half (no disrespect to the home side). Are this Plymouth Parkway side as good as the flashy reports and predictions in the media, well in a nutshell, yes they are. When they switch that turbo on they leave you for dead. I know there are a lot of politics being digested about throwing cash around and all the rest but its bloody good entertainment, at least it is for the neutral and those in yellow and blue bobble hats.

    Great stats Mike, So we need two goals from next three games to reclaim that stat!? Parkway going a long like an express train, again no qualms from our camp, not like a lot of the moaners from.different clubs ... they are the bench mark we are all chasing now...

    SWPL & Cup - Saturday Oct 14th 2017

    Well to be honest I though my lads did very well on Saturday ! we could have used a shut up shop formation and sat deep but i decided to let them play with freedom and have a go. Don't accept is was naivety, we had come back from 2 down and felt we could go on to crab it with only 7 or so minutes on the clock, but we got turned over by two pieces of magic from Slates . Good luck to Bodmin in the next round and in your vase game on Saturday.

    Pipe down in the cheap seats . ( Joke) well done to Truro away tie and draw then return at home midweek would probably pull in a good crowd , perhaps a chance for the club to build some bridges and entice fans back , just my own thoughts with no hidden agenda .

    You would know all about going very quiet when your team loses Leeds!! I expect St Austell are following your example from when Falmouth beat Bodmin. In which case I expect we will hear from them in a couple of weeks!!

    This fixture was arranged to 'help out' Glynn and the County u18 squad in preparation for the start of their campaign and try and go one better than last seasons record breaking side. It's timing was fixed by the County Youth timetable and so as to not clash with league fixtures. Last season the Combo brought together a team and made it an enjoyable event and this season the Combo brought together another team and linked it into a great memorial event for Andy Trathen - the idea was, I am sure, for the ECPL to do the same this season and try to get the 'Cornish football community' to support all the youth players from across the County. The U18's are good players and most play SWPL (West and some even Prem) and the others ECPL and Combo - so they would give any ECPL or Combo scratch team a very hard game (winning both as it happens this year). Some of the comments above are very poor, in my view, it's not about who thinks who's the best players, it's who's available and willing to support the County Youth. From me - a big thank you to all those involved in making this game happen, players and coaches, hopefully next season it will happen again, with less unnecessary criticism.

    FA Cup

    Emirates FA Cup fans will be able to watch three live televised games in the first round proper next month. Broadcast partners BBC and BT Sport have made their selections from the draw, which was made on Monday evening following last weekend’s fourth round qualifying ties. And the first tie of the round will be screened live on BBC Two as eighth-tier side Hyde United host League One outfit MK Dons at Ewen Fields on Friday 3 November, with a kick-off at 7.55pm. The following day sees another non-League team attempt to cause a Cup shock against EFL opposition, as Shaw Lane Association play Mansfield Town live on BT Sport 1 in a lunchtime kick-off (12.30pm, on air at noon) on Saturday 4 November. BT Sport 1 will also show the all-Lancashire tie between Chorley and Fleetwood, which will take place on Monday 6 November with a kick-off at 7.45pm (on air at 7pm) shortly after the second round draw. Each club will receive £67,500 from the FA’s broadcast fund and winning clubs will pick up an additional £18,000 from the prize fund. By FA Staff No mention of the watered down version involving the 8 Sunday games except on the Official Truro City website, I am sorry the club should boycott the weak watered down coverage, support the supporters who have a 600 mile journey and work on Monday

    Rep Sides for SWPL, West & East

    Not like it used to be davegrose.... from the games/teams if have seen play in the West this season, they wouldn't of beat East Cornwall Premier sides 10 years ago. Standards have most definitely gone down, poor, & that seems to be the general opinion amongst most

    Manager Required

    Big bad Barry you seem to know a lot maybe you should apply. No return for myself Martin not at this stage anyway👍Finally Franco won't be asked to step up he's just arrived and doing very well playing some great football with our reserves which we are all delighted with. We already have a team running the firsts as in gk coach assistant manager & plenty of help. We want a manager who can step in with a few players now or later down the line. We have had interest & will see how it goes hopefully if the right man doesn't come for now we can continue as we are. Enough on this subject now.

    2-1 at half time, we came out and scored a stunner to equalise! Very pleased with our efforts against what is obviously a very good, physically strong side. We had our No.10 in goal and were 2 other regulars missing, however fairplay to the lads that filled in with heart and energy and a great team spirit. Thanks for the game and hospitality afterwards, good luck in the next round. Our goal scorers: Tom Giles and Kit Johns.

    Don't think the ref was close enough to see if it was inside or not. Our player being about 6 or 7 yards inside the box when landing should have gave it away, or is he superman.lol Yea we are looking to go as high and far as we can. We have a very good youth team coming through who would fit in at that level too.

    Just to confirm yes we had a few first teamers 4 in total 3 started 1 on bench . Two coming back from injury and all were part of last years second team it’s called being a club which a lot of people moan about when other clubs bring players in from outside there club . The first team use second team players funny how that not mentioned though . Fair play to torpoint strong squad been together years and always grind out results year in year out .

    Looks like there is a good spread of players at Torpoint who could play through the teams but to keep a team together as a unit is a good tactic as they bond and know eachother etc. I have seen Walts play and he can be fantastic at times, there are also several decent players in the ECPL team that could step up, why pay the SWPL team 20 to 50 a game when there is so much talent in the other teams

    Great result! Looking forward to the draw on Monday now. The former Premier League champions, Blackburn, at Treyew Road would be a brilliant reward or any of the west country league teams would draw a good crowd. Fingers crossed for a favourable draw!

    Redruth 1 Frogpool 5 A sluggish first half saw Frogpool go in at 1-0 with a cute Kevin Smith finish from a Mike Rollason cross. Jack Mark Main bursting past 2 to hit the bar was a highlight. Redruth were the better isde and had chances to go in level. Second half came out and worked harder and got the second through Jack with a lovely celebration . The second was key as then went on to score through Kev and a textbook header from Martyn Jay from a Nick Lasseter freekick. Frogpool conceded through Tim Edwards giving away a pen but went back to 5-1 with Jack unselfishly playing in Burt for his second. Man of the match was Lee Booker who made crucial saves at 1-0 and 2-0 to keep us in the game. Not a spectacle but 5-1 and still unbeaten in the league is a positive to take into next week.

    With such criticism, negativity and near offensive comments being publicly aired on the forum it's amazing anyone volunteers to do anything. Well done and good luck to the managers, clubs and players who are willing to help out the County Youth side.

    I'd love to know where you've heard this fall out with first and third team utterly rubbish!!!! I'm the third team manager and have had nothing but a good relationship with Steve and his decision to leave and his reasons are for him to tell people not for anyone else to guess or make up things, but for lot's of people committing to management is becoming harder and harder! Illogan seconds compared to last season have had a much better start and with some of the players in that squad plus great facilities they'll continue to do well...
