    RAPPO got a reaction from Tommy Matthews in SCOTLAND!   
    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!? 🤔

    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 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 ⚽️ 👌

    ️ Thanks Mark. Lovely words and lovely for Nick to be compared to Fergie and Wenger...if only he had their money! We were very honored when you played for us and Nick still speaks fondly of you and includes you in his roll of  top players who have played at Frogpool. He even tells of how he got you, a player of great standard,  to pack away the dirty kit after the game! Not sure about the statue...can you imagine it...lol.

    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

    RAPPO reacted to Ron Manager in Manager/s Wanted   
    Gutted to hear that the Stones are losing Mark and Brian after such a positive season. I was hoping that this was the start of something a bit more long term, but thats junior football I suppose. I'm sure that several of their players will follow the managers to carharrack to play senior football, but I hope it's not another mass exodus like last time. Only time will tell!

    Jarvo has brought through some really talented players in his time at Penryn, would like to know how many have gone on to be first team regulars? Always talks sense win or lose and can always see the bigger picture, liked his teams to play football the right way. No mean player in his day himself, will miss our Combo chats on a Saturday. All the best and enjoy the rest Jarvo! 👍👌⚽️

    Thought it worth a mention that eleven years ago today Truro City lifted the FA Vase at Wembley, many fond memories but on the day I suppose spending time in the company of our dear departed friends Morrish Truscott and Trevor Mewton must be up there with the best of them, hope your up there looking down lads remembering the memorable day.

    A team with only two players below 30 years of age (and one’s the keeper so doesn’t count). We’re a team, where the majority have played at higher levels but are now in the twilight of our playing days - I don’t think we need to prove ourselves to anyone at any level.
    Two cups last season and a failed attempt at league and junior cup.
    This season secure the title in the last game of our season, it’s been a very competitive league where anyone had the ability to beat anyone else on their day.
    First Mawnan premier league title for 10 years.
    This season collectively and personally we have been called, fat, old, slow, useless - so this one is for the fat, old dads, who will most likely be spending their Saturday afternoons shopping in B&Q or Asda in the not to distant future. 💚

    RAPPO reacted to Tommy Matthews in FALMOUTH TOWN V TAVISTOCK   
    Yes Mike, many of them played for the Falmouth United youth sides and also played at county youth level as well. I haven't been able to get to many games this year but the thing that has stood out is the fitness and hunger the lads have shown and add that to the obvious talent they have and it's a pretty potent mix. 
    Back when Rappo, Denty and I were playing we came up against teams who were technically better than us but we always ran the legs off them and I'm a firm believer that fitness is a prerequisite of any player and they've certainly shown that they're prepared to put in the hard yards.
    Great win for Westy and the team behind the team including Graham Medlyn who has kept the club together through tough times.
