  1. As a Town can I firmly believe that Jordan is nowhere near good enough to play for anyone other than Falmouth Town! Same goes for James Ward, Dave Broglino, Joe Cooper et al. They are all rubbish and should be left to fester forever at Town. (Come on boys! Stick with us and let's win everything next year as well as go on a big Vase run. You know it makes sense!)
  2. Interesting news that Sijames. I hope you have heard wrong about Falmouth's plans to triple their playing budget and go up through the leagues. I assume they would finance this from the proceeds of the sale of their ground. As it seems Falmouth will not own their new ground then the likely end scenario would be that we have a few seasons in a higher league before dropping back down and ending up with only the existing social club, stranded in the middle of a housing estate. Sounds like commercial suicide to me! Is it not too late for the club to pull out of the plan to go in with the school, sell their whole ground including the social club. (Hence making more money) and buy some farmland up at a cheaper price? There is plenty just up the road at Hillhead/Kergilliack. This way we will end up with a similar asset to what we have now! Alternatively the Falmouth Rugby Club bought some fields at Menehay a few years ago and got planning to put in pitches and a social club. In the end they were not allowed to sell their existing ground in the town and have since unsuccessfully been trying to sell the land for housing. Maybe they would take an offer for the land as I believe it is owned by a number of club members who no doubt would be keen to see some money back. Just a few thoughts from a concerned life-long fan Maybe someone from the club would like to comment. Just like to say also that the footballing side of the club is exceeding all expectations with a team of West Cornwall based players and with the recent signing of Mattie Buchan from Helston we seem to be able to attract the cream of the local p!ayers now. If they are all up for the travelling it may be affordable to go up through the next couple of leagues on a similar budget. We do not want to go back to the days of Plymouth-based players only there for the money!
  3. A county Youth Team match was scheduled for this season but was rained off.

    Sadly, a few years ago I managed to get a county game at Bickland as it's my home club and was badly let down. When I arrived the pitch was appauling, no work had been done during the week and little effort made to mark it out, the grass hadn't been cut. The changing rooms were filthy dirty as well, I couldn't believe what I was seeing. No committee members there to welcome anybody from the CCFA or Gloucestershire FA, they'd gone to Town's away match somewhere. Only Suzie Williams left to make food for the players after the match which had been agreed beforehand, and she had to go out and buy more as she wasn't told about it.

    To be honest I was embarrassed about it and having agreed everything before the game the "welcome" from the club was anything but welcoming.

    That might have something to do with it. The current committee are trying hard to redress the situation and are back in favour but you'll have to wait your turn I guess.

    Hope that helps.
