  1. Completely agree. Actually think our ref handled it well
  2. The ones that I spoke with whilst waiting for the penalty agreed with the decision. Is the rule now if a penalty is given a yellow card is sufficient due to double punishment of red and penalty??
  3. Still disagree with you. Penalty was given against us, completely understand why it was given. perhaps the ref considered all the above and his decision was a yellow and a penalty. Much prefer a ref to do that and apply common sense than whatever you would have applied
  4. Pretty sure no matter of deliberate or not it can still be a foul. Never deliberately foul another player, just mistimed. Not deliberate so guess that's not a foul??
  5. Don't think the word "deliberate" was used?? pretty sure the ref applied the rules correctly. Pretty sure if penalty given and wasn't a clear attempt at denying a goal scoring opportunity then yellow card a sufficient punishment
  6. Frogpool 4-2 Ludgvan Reserves Cornwall Junior Cup On a perfect autumnal day for football - overcast, mild and with no wind - Frogpool welcomed Trelawney division 3 side Ludgvan Reserves to the Richard Jory for the second round of the Cornwall Junior Cup. And despite an intensive Frogpool warm up by Scott Jones, it was the away side that made the perfect start. After a sloppy first five minutes, midfield anchorman Kai Delaney gave away a free kick just on the right side of the area, which their forward, despite goalkeeper Lee Booker's call of "safe," expertly dispatched in off the bottom right post. However, rather than press the alarm bell and rollover in difficult conditions, Frogpool dug in. They soon created a couple of half chances - centre forward, Kevin Smith, might have done better after getting the right side of the defender and forcing the keeper into a save. Yet on the half hour, Frogpool's persistence paid off. A mis-hit Jack Mark Main corner alluded everyone apart from the ever-alert Martyn Jay on the back post who cooly poked the ball into an empty net. 1-1. Game on. While never a nasty match, some tasty tackles followed, leading to yellow cards for Frogpool's Darren Meagor and Ludgvan's popular no 6. Clearly referee Jamie Mooney was in no mood for playing nice. Into the second half and a scrappy period ultimately resulted in Frogpool grabbing the game by the scruff of the neck. Timothy Hurrell, who marshalled the left side of the Frog's defence superbly, floated a beautiful free kick into the box, which alluded everyone, everyone except Mike Rollason, who on his weaker right foot rifled home from an acute angle. 2-1 to the Frogs. With the wind in their sails, Frogpool continued to push, and soon were 3-1 up. Smith was put through by a pinpoint Meagor pass. And while his touch was not the best, the Ludgvan defenders, suspecting offside, stopped, leaving Smith to round the keeper and roll the ball into the empty net. With all eyes on Mooney, who had given the goal, the referee spoke to his linesman who had flagged for offside. There was only one decision: Frogpool were into a 3-1 lead. Suspecting that their Junior Cup hopes were slipping away, Ludgvan pushed on. Booker made a superb save to keep them out. But unfortunately so did centre half Rowan Hartgroves, who despite a heroic effort to stop the ball from crossing the line, did so using his hand, albeit inadvertently, and was rightfully yellow-carded. Ludgvan's no 8 cooly put away the penalty. 3-2. At this point Frogpool's tenacity shone through. With Neil J Carter introducing some extra energy into central midfield after replacing the solid Shaun Smith, a flowing move down the right saw Main find Jay, who found the back of the net. 4-2. With the game petering out there was still time for substitute Nick Lasseter to have an impact. A 50-50 challenge in the centre of the park became contentious, leading Mooney to reach for the red card. Just 70 seconds after joining the game, Lasseter was off. Suspecting a shift in momentum, Ludgvan again pushed for the two goals they needed. But ultimately they were denied with Jason Holt, Hartgroves, and Turrell towering at the back. The final whistle was met with scenes of delight, both on the pitch and on the sidelines. Frogpool advance to the next round. Special thanks (as always) goes to Nick Mallabar, who's hard work from early in the morning ensured that the game went ahead. We were all delighted to get the result his effort deserved, and look forward to the draw for the next round. MOTM: Tim Hurrell. A calming presence in the Frogpool defence since his pre-season transfer from Mabe. He was rock solid once again. match report by Kevin Smith
