  1. Trelawny League - Saturday Nov 18th 2017

    Congratulations on being qualified and your fellow contribution to grassroots. I fail to see why this is a joke though? I don’t understand the third paragraph fully? And I absolutely whole heartedly agree that most people won’t cheat. If you fail to win a game then that is more than likely your own fault - regardless of whether or not the ref is qualified or not. But, it would open a whole can of worms if any wrong doing in any capacity took place. I’m sure it is, but is it legally covered to have an unofficial referee? Mate, absolutely no problem with Probus at all. My knowledge of the club is extremely limited. Only dealing with Graham in the week, I found him to be very helpful and efficient. I thanked him and their first team manager for their efforts in getting the game on. Great to see a first team manager willing to help out - it says a lot about the club. The only other thing I know is that Sean Johnston currently plays there (product of Wendron). Erby, agree completely. I think it would strengthen people’s knowlege on the laws of the game and open the eyes of many players as to what it is like to experience life as an official. The problem would lie with players who would be willing enough to give up their playing Saturdays to officiate instead.

    Firstly, how is that a contradiction? We have played in fixtures with no appointed referee previously, and upmost respect to Probus for offering to do it - not every club would be able to. However, the decision was made not to play, which every club is entitled to do - the fourth team aren’t the first ones to refuse and they won’t be the last. As we are part of the problem, shall we go and cancel the referring course which is being held at the club? Are you attending, if not, then are you part of the problem? We have players within the club that are trained referees that often give up their weeks of playing football to officiate on Saturdays, Sunday Leagues and youth matches. So I really do not think that we ‘are part of the problem and a joke.’ But if your eyes say so then you’re entitled to your opinion. Are we part of the problem with grassroots football? Week on week giving football to 4 Men’s sides of various levels, providing a Sunday League team, a Vets team and a whole host of youth football? Lots of players within the locality would have played for Wendron at some point - whether youth or men’s. So rather than being the problem with grassroots football, I would consider us being quite a big advocate and promoter of it...in my eyes. I don’t think the idea would catch on, forcing a team to play with an untrained, and possibly not neutral, ref could open a huge can of worms - even if the ‘referee’ has the best of games. Agreed that there is something to be done and it’s great that the FA are putting on more courses at various venues. I don’t know what puts people off, the cost? The fact they don’t think they’ll enjoy it? The fact that they know what people are like as players?

    Welcome to your opinion or onions. The fourths have had several fixtures this season in which refs have not been available and they’ve used ones supplied by ourselves and other sides. Like I said to Graham, the fourths were very thankful for the offer of the first team manager officiating it, but would rather make the trip to Probus with an official referee. Not a reflection on Probus, or on our fourth team, and as I previously mentioned - and spoke to Graham about - they were very thankful for the offer at late notice but they are entitled to turn it down.

    Nothing wrong with having more than 3 teams as long as you can facilitate them. As the previous poster said, a lot of players that play youth at the club come in and play for the 4th/3rd teams, and players on their way down play for them. This doesn't take players away from other sides. The Illogan issue to me sounded like they wouldn't make the step to the seconds, not necessarily an issue with stepping up a level. Hope they sort themselves out - great club. I don't think there is a sole reason for a decline in players, there are many contributing factors and pointing the finger at travel is wrong, the decline is a national issue - not just Cornish. Personally, I think it's just how the world is now. People have other commitments with Saturday work, families and changing technology. People can access games world wide on a Saturday afternoon with out leaving the toilet. It's a decline in spectators as well as players. I remember the smallest of villages getting big crowds out on Saturday afternoons. Now you're lucky if a man and his dog walk past. Grassroots football is an issue nationally at all levels and at all positions of a club. Chairman, managers, players, spectators, groundsmen, kit washers...
  5. St Ives Mariners 1 v Wendron United Res. 5 Again, no text to send in score? Result was emailed in from us. Wendron scorers: L Pawley(2), B Coleman(2) and T Orchard Best of luck to Mariners for the season, thank you for the hospitality and cracking sausage and chips after the game!
  6. Management opportunity at Wendron United

    It is with regret that we announce that Rob Messer has decided to step down from his manager's position from the fourth team with immediate effect. We would like to thank Rob for his continued efforts in stabilising the team and over the past two seasons he has built a team that has gone close to promotion on several occasions. If you are keen to be involved in a forward thinking football club with some great facilities then this is a great opportunity to be involved in. We are seeking someone to take on the role of fourth team manager who has the ambition to help take the side forward, supporting our ethos of providing a platform the youth we bring through the club to play men's football whilst supported by some more experienced players. If you are interested in the role please inbox us, email wendronunited@hotmail.com or get in touch with Peter Thorne on 07950 755213 Thank you

  8. Trelawny League - Saturday October 21st 2017

    Games have to be two equal halves. It doesn't matter what time the game is abondoned, the match must be replayed. Even if abondoned in the 89th minute. We had a fixture abondoned on 83mins last year which was replayed. Dont know where the 75th minute urban myth came from.
  9. FA Cup

    Why would you be pissed off? It's a great opportunity for Truro to gain some fans that may come along every week. What would you, or their regular fans, rather have? A bumper crowd or 300 odd? Especially if it is potentially on national tv. It's a great chance for the club to win over some more local fans and a chance for Cornish Football to get behind the players and not be so 'anti Truro'. They've got a great squad and management team, it's such a shame that we can't get behind them because we don't like the people running it at the top. It's the same for every small side when they get drawn against a bigger one. Interest and support takes off and the Truro regulars should be proud of the profile being raised not pissed off that they may have to sit next to someone from St Cleer. It is potentially a massive thing for Cornish Football. It's a chance for young Cornish people to realise their dream of playing in the FA Cup, and what a message it sends to the youth players in the county. What normally happens in these cases is that of course people jump on the bandwagon, but they then get the bug and hopefully it will raise their crowds back home, especially with them doing so well in the league. And like the poster above said, what an opportunity for the likes of McHale, Cooke etc to put themselves in the shop window a bit. Good luck from me.
  10. Good win in a potential banana skin over Perranwell for Wendron today, winning 3-1. 16 year old Cameron Wheat, assistant manager: O'Neill and another for Stocker with the goals. Just as an aside a massive well done to our ground staff who managed to get three home fixtures on today with our firsts, seconds and thirds all fixtured at home.
  11. Anyone else not receive a text to submit results?
