    • Long way to pop home to see his old muckers now Older, still I suppose you had a clause in his contract for a percentage if he made it as a professional. I did hear that Penryn were playing St Mirren in a pre season friendly. Whoops sorry it was St Merryn. :smiley20:

    Well his mum and dad live just up the road from Kernick, so expect when he comes "home" we'll still see him occasionally.

    Percentage ?? Nah, we don't pay anyone, never have........that's how we still have a "home"

    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! 👍

    Leave Cornwall ...WHAT!!!!!!! only Prague once a year.

    Good luck to Cody Cooke, well done to him for seizing the opportunity and going for it. Better to give it a go and fail, than not try and spend the rest of his life thinking "what if?" After all, who can honestly say they wouldn't want to be a professional footballer?

    I know it's a long shot, but players do break into the pro ranks (and even international sides) after coming through the non-leagues. Think of Nigel Martyn, Jamie Vardy, Ian Wright and Chris Waddle.

    I wouldn't want to be a professional footballer. 

    I like where I live, and like my life style. 

    Retired, and walking my dogs... Lol

    Never seen a 66 year old pro!!

    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 👍

    They would earn more playing for some of the teams in Cornwall ....bonkers ..lol

    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 👍

    Hello Mark.

    Hope you are well.

    Her mother was Scottish, and she always wanted to go up there, but we never got around to it, now she says she's to old ....74 years young !!!!!

    Saw some Welsh footy once, and that was very physical as well, a lot of ex pro's and some toughies !!!!

    Scottish footy is destroyed by Celtic, and most would have the same impression I have I'm afraid, can't see myself changing my mind in the near future either.

    Stay fit buddy.

    Using that logic, German & French football is also a joke 

    Yup, I do lean toward that way of thinking.

    It worked for Manchester United in 1987!

    Older - that assumes the players will be local. 

    If they climb the ranks as they hope too, there will not be any local players, so flying them in could be an option.

    There players will live closer to their away matches than their home matches ....lol

    Oh dear, I’ll wnjoy replying to this in the not to distant future, have you always had it in for this club? It seems strange to make such comments when you are clearly not savvy to the situation at the club. May I ask what your involvement is and with which club? Are you a supporter? Or are you involved in a club? Or are you just a gobshite? Lol

    Made me smile with that ...lol

    Involved heavily with another club, so, trustee, supporter and gobshite if you like ...lol

    Don't know I've ever said anything too bad about Godolphin, rather queried on a few occasions that payments were being made when being strenuously denied at the time !!!!

    You said "if you can get the balance right" I merely asked if you were referring to the budget, obviously a touchy subject .....never mind.

    Drive past it 5 times a day ! What is the difference if I did read it on twitter - it is a fact and facts do not lie !!

    Thought you always used public transport??

    This year the G do have a different budget, and in terms of players coming to the G I would know as I’m managing them next season! 

    We have already made some key signings however we will not making everyone aware of them at this point!

    But I am able to pay more than £40 if I wish.

    Should by tights be a great season for us if I can get the balance right!


    Balance the books you mean ???

  9. Does not matter what Mousehole do, it does not change their geographical position, they recognise this themselves now.

    That's why they inquired about the lease on Penlee park (bad)

    All roads lead to Trungle park .....got to find the road first!!!!!!

    All the best to them from me, but for myself it can only go so far before it hits that big, big travelling problem, and that will be the players just getting to home matches.

    Could always fly in s'pose.......lol

    Not homeless Older in case you have been on holiday in Siberia for the last 2 months City will be at Treyew Road for the foreseeable future, the big issue is how long can the Athletic hang on to their ground on gates of 30, you do the sums.A football club cannot survive on chips and curry sauce alone. 

    30 ......we don't get that many, where you been - Siberia????

    OH!!!!! we have no debt, and not likely too, rather we have just invested substantially in the club over the last year and are bouncing along quit nicely at this time.....thank you for your concern though.

    Your trouble is your "foreseeable future " is not in your hands !!!   ours is.

    All the best to TCFC though.

    Mousehole AFC would like formally to thank Penzance AFC and their Chairman Terry Burgess for their willingness to explore a shared way forward for the future.  Although the two clubs will not be progressing together, we would like to put on record our greatest respect for the Penzance club and Chairman, and will continue to enjoy the healthy but competitive rivalry that exists between the two clubs.  In the meantime, Mousehole AFC continue to be fully committed to exploring all opportunities to better serve our community and create a brighter sporting future for our kids.  Several exciting developments are being put in place and announcements will be made in due course.

    And will be keeping an eye on how long is left on the PZ lease no doubt.

    Poor, poor way of going about things initially.

    I have always been intrigued by the Cornwall Senior Cup opposition of ATDU who played at Bickland Park in 1957-58.

    Based at RNAS Culdrose ATDU stood for Aerial Torpedo Development Unit - a rather secretive   establishment it makes me wonder how they got affiliated as a Senior club and what league would they have played in.

    Are there other obscure clubs which have appeared in this competition-ie RAF St.Eval

    I bet they were good on a wet pitch.

    Ok. Maybe you would like to share with us your vision for the future growth and development of Cornish Football?

    There will be no growth, or development, rather it will continue to shrink as interest wanes in football generally.

    Another nail in the coffin today, Amazon have now got rights to screen football as well, so if you want to watch top flight football you now need 3 accounts !!!!!!

    Other interests, and over coaching of youngsters at too young an age will shrink football in GB to an all time low.
