    RAPPO got a reaction from Taniachairmangodolphin in Phil Ryder RIP   
    Two really good teams there Dave!! Remember watching those sides as a kid and lucky for me went on to play with most of them a few years later. Some really talented players in those sides managed by the great Trevor Mewton. None more so than Phil who was pretty scary in those days to play with and against!! A big strong striker!! As Denty said every opponent knew he had been in a game when they played against him. great photo's

    RAPPO got a reaction from ex-chairman in Phil Ryder RIP   
    Really gutted to hear this news Dave. When I first went to Newquay at 16 Phil and Graham Nicholls were the front two for the 1st team and the county, different players and blokes but both brilliant at what they did. Lovely for a young novice like me to learn off those two masters. Phil was as strong as an ox and he would actually bully the centre half!! He would back into defenders and was almost impossible to get the ball off but was a great finisher with it and hell of a strike on him. Always great to see him at football over the years for a reminisce. Saw him at Godolphin end of last season in good spirits as usual but comparing our knackered knees!! Im sure the older gents will have some great stories about  Phil, great character!! RIP to a proper Cornish football legend. ⚽👌

    RAPPO got a reaction from Cameron Hague in Vets 22nd/29th Oct   
    ROYAL PAR  (1)  3     White 34’  Drew 65’  Hague 82’
    WENDRON  (0)  2     Pascoe 68’  Hughes 86’
    Wandered down the hill to Par running track to catch up with some old mates on both teams (I drove actually, even though it’s only half a mile!! Calf still agony from last week) and saw a decent cup tie to keep the 6 crowd in attendance enthralled. I counted both of myself as 2 as well!! 😳 Par are a much improved outfit these days but when I saw the Wendron line up with Scoffy in goal, Pottsy at the back, Hughesy and Bambi in midfield, Mikey out wide right and Dom up front amongst others I must admit I fancied an away win. Par then proceeded to take the game to the visitors and Scoffy had to be on his toes to keep out efforts from the lively Cameron Hague and Wayne Drew. There was more bad news for Wendron after 25 minutes when they lost Dom with a hamstring injury and their best source of goals. The hosts deservedly took the lead after 34 minutes when Neil White got on the end of a bad pack pass to slot past Scoffy. The second half was more end to end and the hosts after a decent ten minute spell of pressure doubled their advantage after 65 minutes when man of the match Drew broke the offside trap and lobbed home from the edge of the area although Pottsy made a valiant attempt to clear on the line lashing it into the roof of the net. The visitors got back into it five minutes later when Mikey Pascoe ran on to a through ball to bend a side foot finish around Dave Holley in the home goal. The visitors forced several corners but Holley was punching away well and Ryan Morcom clearing with strong headers but Nigel Brabyn missed a header I’ve seen him score dozens of times in his Perranwell days from a pinpoint Mikey corner. The tie was clinched 8 minutes from time when Cam struck a superb left foot shot from just outside the area past Scoffys outstretched glove and inches inside the far post. That though wasn’t the goal of the game though as Wayne Hughes rolled back the years to send a 30 yard curler into the net when he spotted Dave out of position after he had saved from an earlier attack. It made the last couple of minutes interesting but the ref blew right on the final whistle to end the contest. Game played in great spirits by two good sets of lads and well reffed. Enjoyed it 👍⚽️

    Yeah I think I said I went to the game, so yeah I was actually there. Just my opinion Gareth Davies. I don’t really obviously know much about local football and bow to your greater knowledge by the sounds of it! Could have swore I saw Bodmin hit the post a couple times as well but sounds like they were outplayed! Maybe that bit was when I was getting a cup of tea? I’ll just have to look forward to hearing about Parkway beating Bodmin about 6 or 7-0 then by the sounds of it? Shame I was going to go thinking it might be a close game but might not bother now seeing Bodmin are that bad and Parkway that good.

    Yeah pleasure for you Dave just give me a shout mate 👍
    On the pen subject I think if a player has made an honest attempt to block the shot and its hit his hand and the ref deems it a penalty then a pen and a yellow if you have to is punishment enough I think and common sense refereeing. If a defender dives full stretch across his goal line and tips a goal bound shot over the bar then that to me is a red card and a pen. Think the refs shouldn’t have the pressure of the laws rammed down their throat so much. I think the best refs I’ve come across over the last 40 odd seasons in football are ones that you can talk to and use common sense. Just an opinion really. Still shocked ABBA caused all that trouble yesterday though! Benny was a right nutter apparently!!! 😂

    Cheers bud, heard you moving back our way and Par Track walking distance? There's a team that plays there that would have you back!! Should say Wendron great bunch of lads, always a pleasure to play them. With fewer games to play this season be good to go down their place for a friendly and stick some money behind their bar.

    If a player goes to block a shot and is turning away say to protect his face but his hands are away from his body I can see why it’s still got to be given but not a red card. Don’t see why it has to be so black and white. Handball red card off. Accidental handball maybe, - nothing. Just let the refs use common sense. Can see what you’re saying though. I’ll agree to disagree Cos my steak and chips are on the table!!! 👍😀

    Common sense has to prevail, of course. How many referees do you see cautioning a player for standing over the ball at a free kick? For kicking the ball away after the whistle has blown? for taking a step off the pitch to take on some fluids? These are all mandatory cautions, but many of us manage such situations unless they happen more than once [and] after you've previously given a player a talking to.
    If a defending team player has deliberately used his hand(s) to prevent a goalscoring opportunity and the referee subsequently awards a penalty... The player (by law) has to be dismissed so as harsh as it sounds, @Laws of the Game does have a valid point.
    I must admit though, I thought the same thing when I read the post about this because DOGSO(H) is a red card offence. However, I didn't comment on it because I wasn't there... And whenever I quote the law book, I get hounded  
    @RAPPO I have a favour to ask of you by the way... I will give you a shout if a plan I have formulates
