  1. Out of my price range for a single programme as well Mike. Like I have said to you, in the last few months the price of older non-league football programmes has rocketed. I reckon prices have doubled. Could be more collectors on the market or people have more money to spend on their hobby. Mike, I have already bought 4 programmes this week! You tempted me Mike so I have just bid £29.41 and was still out-bid!
  2. Remember for the Cup Match I need the final score. I could go to extra time ans finish as a draw and be won on penalties but we need your prediction for the final playing score.

  4. Penzance Reserves' Junior Cup 2017 Journey

    Cornwall Junior Cup 3rd Round Penzance Reserves 5-2 St Minver Reserves Att – 28 After a couple of Saturdays where the weather has been against decent football, it was a pleasant surprise to wake up to a calm, fairly warm but overcast day. Penzance the lowest ranked team still left in the competition faced St Minver Reserves who at the time of writing were sitting mid-table in Duchy Division 2. After their previous two away victories against Trelawny Div 3 side, Holman SC Reserves and another Duchy 2 side, St Columb Major, it was good to have a home tie. The final score of 5-2 to the hosts does not show what a difficult game it was for them and for most of the first half and part of the second the visitors were the better team and deserved their lead. The St Minver goals once again showed the weakness Penzance have at defending set pieces but it is a skill that will appear with age and experience. Penzance kick off facing the park end of the ground. They are straight on the attack pushing St Minver back, but instead of playing to their strengths with a ground ball game they decide to kick long. On 3 minutes a Penzance ball from the back sees Luke Carroll run on and fire in a strong shot. The St Minver keeper spills it and Finlay Walsh following up belts the ball in low from 10yds. The lead lasts 6 minutes before the visitors are level. Penzance give away a free kick 30yds out, left of centre. The wall lines up, the attacker fires over the wall. The ball hits the top of the post, bounces back into the middle of the 6yd box for one of three attackers to head down and in to make it 1-1. St Minver now have their tails up and push forward. They are quick on the break and get caught off-side several times. Penzance play long still and it is not working. Players are moaning at each other for lack of goal action. One or two want to hold onto the ball perhaps one touch too many. On 16 mins St Minver go ahead. Another free kick, wide-right this time, is knocked into the box and a Penzance defender in his haste to clear his lines heads it into his own net. The half then follows the same pattern as before, with the visitors breaking with numbers, the Penzance back line pushing forward catching them off-side. But of the two sides St Minver look the most likely to score again. H-T The half starts with a quick Penzance break and shot that is blocked, the ball is knocked straight up the pitch for a striker to run and shoot from all of 3yds. Simon Mortimer, Penzance's stopper somehow gets down to block the ball which bounces out. A shot comes in and is cleared off the line. If that had gone in it would probably have been game over. The game carries on as before until the 58th minute when Penzance equalise. They win a corner on the right. It is knocked out 25yds to Will Symons who unleashes an absolute screamer giving the keeper and defenders no chance. 2-2 game on. As Penzance seem to do lately, once they score and equaliser they score a go-ahead goal almost immediately and this game was no exception. 3 mins later on 61 minutes they work the ball forward to the edge of the box for Carroll to also unleash a pile-driver that the keeper gets his fingertips too but can't prevent the home side going 3-2 up. The tempo of the game speeds up from roughly the 65th minute as St Minver have to push forward to score and Penzance at last start to play the ball on the ground. This opens St Minver up at the back but Penzance miss a couple of chances. At the other end Mortimer is having a good game grabbing every ball on target. 73 minutes gone and Reece Evans puts the Magpies 4-2 up. In his own words “ the ball gets played up field as it bounces over one of the Minver midfielders Reece is there to flick the ball over the defensive line and beat the keeper to the ball, magnificently chipping the ball over the keeper and smashing the ball into the back of the net.” Mortimer makes another good save when a free kick is knocked over to the back of the box, a shot comes in, he gets down to block and grab. St Minver work the ball forward, are rewarded with an open goal but the striker puts it wide. With 10mins to go Penzance get their 5th to make the game effectively safe. Again a long ball from the keeper to the middle of the St Minver half. Carroll collects the ball, beats a defender, runs on to roughly 30ds out, one on one with the keeper, rising shot past his flailing arm into the net. The final goalmouth action sees the visitors break right, lob to the back post, shoot but Mortimer is equal to it and blocks at the bottom of the upright. F-T Looking back, Penzance have to thank Mortimer for some great saves to keep them in it. Penzance defensive unit played well holding St Minver back apart from the occasional through balls when the visitors would then break in numbers. Penzance were second best for nearly an hour but eventually showed what they can do. Three higher placed sides now defeated in the Junior Cup, into the last 16, the dream continues.

  6. Final score Penzace Reserves 5-2 St Minver Reserves Final score flattered Penzance as keeper Simon Mortimer kept them in the game several times especially in the second half. Taking a 3 minute lead Penzance succumbed to their failing of not defending set pieces. St Minver equalised in the 9th minute and went ahead in the 16th. It stayed that way until a double strike in the 58th and 61st minutes put the hosts in front. St Minver had to chase a win and so pushed forward. This left them vunerable and was exploited by the Magpies who scored another two in the 73rd and 80th minutes. Well done to the visitors who took the defeat in good grace. It is a pity to see only 28 people watching the game but Penzance go forward into the last 16.
  7. A bit of advice

    I see on the Full Time website the game has bee listed as a Home Walkover and Hayle awarded 3 points. Thing is that is the second time Madron have had a game knocked dow as either an A-W or H-W and they have not had any points knocked off. Has the rule been changed where a club is deducted three points for not completing a fixture, and then 6, and so on?
