  1. Senior football facility's

    There is a stretcher available at clijah Croft in the corridor beside the changing rooms. The only problem would be that paramedics bring their own with them,so there is no real need for one.

  3. Mabe FC Fold

    Illogan have had 3 teams for a very long time.there was 3 teams when I played for them in the 1980s South western league combo league and mining league. Wendron have 4 teams but that is because of their many youth teams like st day and Helston and yes I know so do Illogan
  4. Older I mean disappointing in the fact that where we are in the league and the timing of the equaliser
  5. Mabe FC Fold

    Don’t sit on the fence Graham say what you mean 😎
  6. Disappointing result at clijah Croft today. With one minute to go in three added on Penryn equalised and you could see by the way that they celebrated how much they needed it. Thanks to all the Penryn players for not even bothering to come back after the games.
  7. Redruth utd 1 penryn 1 Scott thomas for redruth Penryn equalised in time added on
  8. Had a pitch inspection game should be on Redruth United v Penryn

  10. Mabe FC Fold

    There lies the problem for clubs Tempo. And that is why Mabe have folded because it was set up by a group of mates who then just left a few loyal people to struggle on because they needed to win.People need to realise that only one team can win a league but without the other teams there will be no league.
  11. Mabe FC Fold

    I remember when I first played for Holmans back in the early 1980s we were regularly being beaten by double figures but we stuck with it and improved and ended up making the area final of the junior cup and winning promotion to the combo. That to me gave me far more satifaction than moving to a club that was winning every week and yes I did have offers to move to better clubs. But then that's loyalty and there are very few loyal players around today

    Could well be there birthday falls late in the season as well ctb Seem to remember in the old mining league we used to be regionalised for the Dunn Cup and used to play the same teams every year on round robin basis

  14. Good result for the league as well dave
  15. Another club folding!?

    Easy to say but to quote our prime minister “ money doesn’t grow on trees” we are a proactive club and put in hours both on the pitch and off it but it is frustrating that we only have a 12 month contract and cannot get any help so even if we wanted too cannot progress up the ladder of success
  16. Another club folding!?

    Dave the criteria only helps clubs with their own grounds.First questions asked 1. Do you own your own ground. 2 how long a lease do you have. Look around at council facilities and they are steadily getting worse through lack of council budgets.not a dig at the councils if it’s hospitals or schools or old people then they must get priority. Look at the clubs where funding has been given and these clubs with all due respect are not grassroots. Don’t get me wrong as I’ve said before you have to get off your backside and work for it yourself but you have to have willing volunteers and that is where the problem lies, most of these volunteers are getting older and not being replaced and it just gets harder and harder.
  17. Another club folding!?

    GEACH1 I have said this before so much money has been thrown at youth football and now I think the tide has turned and if the FA are not careful and do not invest in proper grassroots men’s football there will not be enough teams for all the boys coming through
  18. Another club folding!?

    We at Redruth are like most teams in "transition and I expect Chacewater when you are struggling on the pitch players decide to go else where because they are not prepared to roll their sleeves up and fight for the cause or just stop playing because they cannot be bothered.

    Stevieb people have long memories and lots of bridges have been burnt and unfortunately Truro City will take along time to remove this stigma from people’s memories. On a personnel note good luck to Truro at Charlton enjoy your day you have worked hard for it and “ you never know” what may happen on the day.whether your a Truro fan or not it is putting Cornish football in the national limelight which too me is the most important point
  20. You only have to look at the combo and eclp to see how many regulations are placed on junior clubs who want to get promoted and the higher up the structure you go the more expensive it gets. The Football Association need to wake up and realise that they are pricing clubs who have the playing standard from improving and moving up the leagues.I can Remember Falmouth, Liskeard and Saltash all playing Western league football and I for one struggle to see it happening again unless like Truro you get a sugar daddy
  21. Thanks for the encouragement The one. Both us and Holman are in the same position at present.players come and go but we as clubs have to pick up the pieces and rebuild and it’s not easy when your down the bottom and you struggle to put the same eleven out each week but we march on because the club has to survive and as much as we cannot stand losing the spirit is there and we are getting better and the tide will turn. 😎
