    seeking new club

    Weazle ain’t lying! Still a quality player and fit as a fiddle 👍 Can play anywhere on the pitch and will never let you down. Good bloke to have in the dressing room as well 👍⚽️

    Thats for sure to be honest Paul. Got to know quite a few people at that level through the bro in law over the last 15 years or so and some of Cornwalls finest could play at that level no problem. Its fairly decent money as well, most League 1 and League 2 clubs pay £200 - £300 a week and even the Highland and Lowland leagues will pay £200 for a top player at that standard. Know there was an ex league striker at East Kilbride getting £400 a week last season but they still just missed out on promotion for the second season in a row!! Chuck that money together with a job and its a decent wage. Bit fresh up there between November and February playing or watching footy so take your skins and tights with you!!
  3. Good luck to Parkway this season, i'll definitely pop the 30/40 minutes up the road and go and watch a bit of Western League football this season and wish them continued success on and off the field. Glynn and Yettsy as a front two might shock a few of those Bristol defences this season, or is it next season? Aint no break these days is there? Especially with the World Cup!! Ive hardly had time to watch Love Island!!!

    Still think currently they would stay up. Won’t be swayed on that! They would pick pick up enough points at home over a season along with the odd away win. You say “one game” but I’ve watched them beat Man Utd 1-0, Barcelona 2-1, and an AC Milan team 2-1 with Seedorf, Kaka, and Pirlo in midfield and Shevchenko and Inzhagi up front in their prime over the last ten years alone. Saw the PSG game as well to be fair and they were outclassed but they did beat Barca 4-0 in the knockout rounds as well so no disgrace in that against a team that can spend over 300 million on 2 players!! Celtic have just sold a player to Southampton for 6 mill and he couldn’t get in the side last season! They’ve also got one of the best scouting systems in Europe. They would finish between 10th - 15th in the Premier league. Case closed 😀⚽️

    Yeah been to Annan Keith, tidy little ground ain’t it mate. All decked out in black and yellow reminded me of Bickland Park!! 👍 I’ve only got 6 more league grounds to do up there now Keith! I’ll have to start on the Highland and Lowland leagues after that! Seen some great games up there over the years mate!! 👍
  8. Well done Dave, another great mag👏🏼👍 enjoyed the interviews with the goalscorers 👍 and obviously all the end of season stats for the leagues!! 👌

    Steven Gerrard - New Rangers Manager

    Hi Darren, watched football all over Europe over the years, especially Holland, Belgium, Spain, Portugal bits in France and Cyprus and the top half of the Scottish Premiership can hold its own with most of it. Take the top four or five sides away from the top leagues obviously but the rest of the league I would say Celtic, Rangers, Aberdeen and the two Edinburgh teams would give most teams a game without doubt. All about opinions obviously but seen a lot of it and that’s mine. 👍⚽️ Hi Dave, tell Fred to get up there!! Reckon you two are still fit enough to have a great time mate! It’s like a big Cornwall!! Plenty of green up there! A few pitches up there that even you would be proud of! 👌 Get a bit of lovely Scottish air in your lungs! 👍

    SCOTLAND!

    Yeah they would no problem. They drew at home to Man.City at Parkhead last season in the Champions league, didn’t see too many English teams doing that last season? Not saying they would compete at the top end of the table but they would get the 40 points needed to stay up over a 38 game season. Would say they are a better side than the likes of Huddersfield and Brighton who stayed up last season, been watching Celtic for about 15 years and quite a bit of Premiership football in that time, they would stay up no problem Think Rooney has seen a few in his time Stevie!!! 👍😂

    SCOTLAND!

    Haha 😆 Celtic would be the only team who could hold their own in the Premier league Dave. Think they would get quite a few points at home. Would say the top half of the Premier league would compare to the Championship. Aberdeen, Hibernian, Hearts and possibly Motherwell on their day. The bottom half of the Prem more like league 1. Would say the likes of Dundee, Accies, Kilmarnock be on a par with Argyle. The Championship with the likes of Dundee Utd, Partick Thistle, Falkirk etc is more bottom end League 1/ League 2 standard. League 1 and 2 would be non league in England as its semi pro. Know the chairmen at Albion Rovers and Stirling Albion and the players are on £200-300 a week in those leagues Dave. Would say the tempo up there is faster and more physical in general but not quite as technical as England. Seen some cracking games up there over the years though mate 👍⚽️

    Steven Gerrard - New Rangers Manager

    Yeah that’s not really Scottish football as a whole though Dave. I agree Celtic are 20 points better than anyone else in the Premier league but I’ve watched some really good matches up there in the lower divisions including the Highland and Lowland leagues and it’s really competitive. Clubs like Dundee United can’t get out the Championship and Rangers took a couple of attempts. It’s decent football and very physical, should take the mrs up there for a little holiday and have a look Dave, reckon you would be surprised at the standard mate 👍

    Great move for Cody Dave! The ground only 8 miles from the bro and sis in laws so will pop over and watch him next season. Tom Owen-Evans signed for Falkirk as well, half hour up the road. Both lovely little new stadiums, hope the lads do well, no more than Cody deserves after his performances last season. Watched a lot of Scottish football and I reckon he will do really well. Tom next maybe!? 🤔
  14. Like the new badge!! 👍. Glad the cathedral is back in, got to have that!! Always reminds me of home as I’m sure it does for any Truro boy. Promoting the Cornwall flag as well spot on when City are travelling all over the south of England 👍 Still not sure what a tiger has got to do with Truro though!?! 13 mile trek from Newquay zoo!! 😀 Think the club should “paws” on that one! 😂
  15. 15 years ago this September since the great man left us Mike. Hard to believe really, not a day goes by where he’s not in our thoughts. George Turbo Torrance does a great job arranging the fixtures for Daves tournament every pre season. Hope the clubs put out strong sides, Dave was a legend on and off the pitch, great to see his name live on in Cornish football ⚽️ 👌
  16. Think that might not just be a rumour!? Be a shame after the great job Macca did this season. Would have thought some great players be up for grabs for the vultures, young Cam Turner is improving all the time, a really silky midfielder and the talented Jack Bray-Evans who’s a match winner on his day. DannyO still a top player to have around any club on and off the pitch, great example and can still play a bit getting man of the match most weeks last season! Hope it is a rumour though and Macca stays and carries on the good work. Up the Peppermints 👍⚽️
  17. Well explained Dave!! I quite like the look of it if that’s the case. Think it might work better with less teams in the lower leagues with no floodlights, might not get the crazy fixture schedule that a lot of teams were faced with at the end of this season with our ridiculous wet winter we had. As Dave mentioned the Combo and ECPL leagues still look similar and competitive. Maybe promote 4 teams at the end of the Trelawny season to make both leagues up to 16. Give the chance for good clubs like Holmans and Goonhavern the chance to bounce straight back up with two others maybe? At first glance think it will work well, especially in the Premier league, lot of very good Cornish teams with good facilities these days including floodlights and to be honest it’s only missing Tavistock as Parkway were up anyway. 👍⚽️
  18. Good luck to Damo!! 👍⚽ Great first job, a club like St.Austell that he knows well. With Parkway promoted, think the league will be wide open and well contested next season! 👍

    Perkins Matthews.

    Following on after his career he had a son to make him very proud as well Tom. An inspiration to his team mates on and off the field who puts 100% into anything he does and my dads favourite player (centre halves club)! Cherish the memories mate 👍⚽️

    I’m still waiting patiently Sticker!!! There was talk of something at the end of last season but I know they are busy people at the County FA!! I did get an invite to last seasons Senior Cup final at Helston and the tea and choccy biscuits went down well 👍 I had 52 games for Cornwall over the years but there were no caps back then so I was secretly hoping for a Cornwall cap with maybe 2000 on it!?! 👌 Alas I live in hope! 😀⚽️ Superb from Nick and Michelle, all that loyalty to one club over 3 decades is amazing 👏🏼👍❤️🖤

    Fergie, Wenger, now Nick!!! Bout 75 years service to one club between them!! Had the pleasure of playing for Nick for a couple of seasons after I stepped down from senior football. Enjoyed it every bit as much and had some great times! Echo all that’s been said by the lads, be surprised if we ever see the like of Nick and Michelle again to be honest. Lovely people, put in thousands of hours for the Frogs, unbelievable commitment!! Reckon we should all chip in and build a statue of them both just inside the gate at the Richard Jory Fields! 👌⚽️ Absolute legends, hope you enjoy the rest on a Saturday Nick and Michelle, no one deserves it more 👍👌⚽️🏆👏🏼 Hope the Cornwall FA does a little something in recognition for two great people x
  24. Fantastic achievement for Tom, be a great experience for him! Reward for how much hes come on this season playing week in week out and being the number 1. Big confidence booster for him going into the play offs hopefully!? Congrats to City goalkeeping coach Deba Sidhu for all his hard work with Tom, top bloke with it too. Surprised Cody ain’t had a little call up the form he’s been in of late as well?
  25. Hi Denty, hope your well mate. Have a great xmas and new year. Loads of love Rappo and Rach ######
