  1. I have, but it’s a rivalry game so both clubs think that it would be more appropriate to have a neutral official as it complicates things. Managing the side while officiating in such a vital fixture doesn’t sit well with me. i have also offered to officiate another game if ours is, indeed, called off. So don’t worry about me - I’ll be involved in Football one way or another on a Saturday
  2. We’re without a referee at the minute 😭
  3. Division 3 Frogpool Reserves 3-2 St Ives Mariners We started well but St Ives soon settled into the game and started to dominate quickly. A couple of mistakes allowed St Ives to go one up, and they easily could have had a couple more if it wasn’t for some fine goal keeping from Alex Prynn and some poor finishing. Their striker ran through and I think took a deflection before bouncing over the unfortunate Frogpool goalkeeper. The second goal came down the right hand side for St Ives, a cross found the striker who had too much space, and finished well. We were really poor in the first half, but the hard working Sam Macwilliam won the ball and it fell to Jack Froud to slot into an empty net. A couple of penalty shouts, last ditch tackles and offside calls were claimed for - but it about balanced itself out probably. We were riled up for the second half and St Ives will feel they should’ve killed it in the first. Determination from Harry Payne and Sam Macwilliam allowed Froud to score twice in very quick succession, some how, putting us 3-2 up. We then could’ve scored a forth and saw the game out well. Lucky to get three points, but we will definitely take it. It’s important we keep winning even if we aren’t playing so well. Man of the match: Sam Macwilliam who was tireless and energetic throughout - shout outs also to Froudy for getting a hatty and Alex Prynn for some fine goalkeeping.
  4. As always Pete, huge credit to yourself and your side. Thank you for all of your help. Top, top bloke. Jack seems to be in good spirits. He got a selfie with the paramedic in the ambulance haha.
  5. Mabe FC Fold

    Surprisingly, no. Most of the reserve players are from the Falmouth area. The club works incredibly hard. I guess the fact we have had a similar squad for three years now stems from the loyalty from me and Nick. Nick's been at the club for 26 years or longer, I can't quite remember now. Whereas I am in my 7th season with the club now, third as manager, and I'm only 22, almost 23. I would assume though that if there were a manager change in either side that the likelihood is there would be a change in personnel on the pitch, depending who came in to manage. i think that's just how football is now. It's not even just that players are loyal to managers, it's that when a new manager comes they're like to bring in a lot of their own players. Leaving a lot of the old ones out. Certainly, when I took over, some of the old guard didn't like the change in the side and left, so that's certainly a factor too.
  6. Mabe FC Fold

    Lots of loyalty about, that loyalty just isn't related to clubs. It is to managers or other players/friends etc
  7. Mabe FC Fold

    This is difficult to manage and maintain, speaking from experience and from what I have seen - see Mabe as a prime example. Is it a conincence they folded after they started losing matches? No. Players don't want to lose every week or they'll lose interest. I have a very young team, anyone who has played us will tell you that. But the focus has got to be on winning in order to keep everyone interested. Plus, ultimately, that's the aim isn't it?
  8. Bad organisation on your pet Wellsy but I'm surprised Dave didn't let you crack on with it! Some interesting results in Division 3 with Ruan Minor and Titans slipping up but Holmans and Ludgvan both winning again! Going to be an odd season in Div 3 I think!
  9. Another club folding!?

    Sad to see this 😭
  10. I'd like to avoid it 😂 During a non-game week I could do with out that 😂
  11. Thanks guys. I have no intention of going anywhere, but you're right, I'd never say never. i appreciate the kind words from you both and look forward to undoubtedly catching you at some point this season! Completely focused on this season first and foremost - just debating what to do with my Saturday off this weekend. It's a toss up between watching our firsts or Titans vs St Buryan at the minute!
  12. I've made one appearance this season in ten games. Unfortunately the side are too strong at the minute. Ten wins on the bounce and five clean sheets in a row makes for good reading. Long way to go though! i was going to have a run out yesterday, took my coat off to discover I was still wearing my polo not y match shirt 😂 I've been filling my boots with Sunday League to make up for it though.
  13. Division 3 St Agnes 3rds 0-3 Frogpool Reserves Not our best performance, but a comfortable one. The defence were solid through out. Our first goal came as a delightful chipped ball from Sam Macwilliam made its way to Jack Froud to tuck home for his tenth of the season. We dominated for large parts but struggled to create an awful lot until the last twenty minutes or so. Aaron Coveney came off the bench with great impact, winning a penalty that Froud cooly put away for his second of the game. Coveney again did well on the left, and some fine link up play with Harry Payne caused all sorts of problems. Payne helps up the ball well and laid off Macwilliam who smashed the ball into the bottom corner in an excellent move. I gave man of the match to Charlie Martin though who dictated the game from start to finish with some great tackles and faultless passes. well refereed
  14. What are our thoughts?
  15. Quite a lot of games were on Marksy 😉
  16. Division 3 Rosudgeon Reserves 0-4 Frogpool Reserves Scrappy game thanks to Brian, but we played some good stuff on the break in the second half against the wind. First goal came from a Jack Froud corner. Turned in by a defender into his own net in the first half when we had the wind. Half time, after a poor performance, we were a little concerned. But Sam Macwilliam's hard work on the break gained us an opportunity, that Sam Bromley bundled over the line. (Sam Mac, we will pretend your misses didn't happen.) Substitute Craig Rothwell won a penalty on the left which Brommerz calmly tucked away. In the last ten minutes, substitute Cameron Hamshaw played a lovely through ball allowing Harry Payne to finish with devastating tenacity. We gave man of the match to Alex Prynn in goal, who kicked well and was composed throughout. Thank you to Rosudgeon for their hospitality. Hopefully we can keep this momentum going with our 9th win in as many matches in all competitions.
  17. No ringers called BTE
  18. Frogpool vs Wendron is off. Rosudgeon Reserves vs Frogpool Reserves is ON.
  19. 😂😂😂😂 maybe you're right, I'm just hopeful
  20. It's quite sunny here in Falmouth, with the wind, I think more games will be on than originally expected.
  21. Arthur Pearce Cup Rosudgeon Reserves 0-5 Frogpool Reserves Decent, solid performance against a well drilled Rosudgeon side. With a couple of injuries, Craig Rothwell was up front and proved his worth after a well timed finish from an Ashley Johnson cross. Johnson went onto score the goal of the game early in the second half, calmly guiding the ball into the back of the net from the edge of the box after a Jack Froud cross. Froud scored his ninth of the season with a well placed left footed finish that flew into the top corner after a Harry Payne cross. Alex Prynn had a solid debut and was called into action a couple of times, and he duly delivered. Nick Caulkin scored the fourth after a pea dribbler of a shout spun over the goalkeeper. Charlie Martin, who had previously been sin binned for being a foul mouthed idiot, wrapped up proceedings with a cool finish. Onto the next round. Thanks Rosudgeon for the hospitality, see you again next week! Man of the match: Ashley Johnson
  22. Russell Hall Cup Ruan Minor 0-1 Frogpool Reserves Scrappy game but a hard fought victory on the road for the Frogs. The goal came from a Jack Froud cross to Sam Macwilliam who then rounded the goalkeeper and slotted it home. The frogpool defence were resilient through out, with the midfield and front three working incredibly hard all game. Man of the match was Craig Rothwell in goal! thank you to Ruan Minor for their hospitality and to the referee who I thought had a very good game.
  23. Best and worse showers in Cornwall

    Dracaena have the best showers/facilities in my book
  24. Trelawny 3 Frogpool Reserved 9-0 St Just Reserves Dominant display from start to finish. The front three played incredibly and the whole side were great throughout. Harry Payne opened the scoring with a beautiful finish after a Sam Macwilliam through ball. Jack Froud doubled the lead quickly with a header after Payne's stunning cross. Jack Froud also tucked away two penalties to complete a hat trick and set up a well timed Sam Macwilliam header. Harry Payne's crosses were too much for the St Just defence who also turned one in for an own goal. Payne scored another good goal in the second half, and Ashley Johnson smashed two replica free kicks into the bottom corner from twenty yards out. Sam Bromley also pulled off a Hollywood save, filling in in goal. The defence were brilliant through out as well. And considering we were without a lot of players we played exceptionally. Man of the Match: Harry Payne.
