  1. Very fair match report. Nothing much in it first half and St Minver did miss several good chances but the Penzance second half performance made them worthy winners. Personally, I didn't think either side played particularly well, but nice to visit a new venue, sorry i couldn't stay for a pint in the clubhouse afterwards but us oldies like to be home before dark! Anyone out there know the St Dennis v Torpoint result ?
  2. Looking forward to a day out with the Chairman as we head west to Penzance in support of our Duchy representatives St Minver (reserves). Both sides are sitting in modest positions in the lower divisions of their respective leagues so it could be a tight affair. St Dennis V Torpoint is a tough one to call.
  3. Duchy League - Saturday 11th November 2017

    Knock Out Cup - St Newlyn East (Div One) 1 - 4 Torpoint Athletic (Premier) A cracking cup tie at Cargoll Road with the visitors worthy winners but the scoreline doesn't do St Newlyn East justice or reflect the balance of play. It was end to end stuff right from the kick off with Adam Brayson putting Torpoint ahead after 25 minutes. The home side had two very good chances to equalise shortly before the break but were denied first by an excellent save and then by a post. Twenty minutes into the second half Matthew Westall extended the lead but Saints weren't done and pulled one back through Ross London. Within a few minutes Torpoint capitalised on some defensive errors with Byron Robbins and William Fergusson taking the score to 4-1. A very competitive but very fair match, Torpoint's side were generally younger, fitter and better organised but St Newlyn were never out of it.

    is this one planned for in the stadium ?
  5. Duchy League - Saturday 11th November 2017

    I'm tempted to take a trip over to St Newlyn East (v Torpoint in the Cup) but wont decide until the morning and might opt for a ground with some good shelter if the weather is too bad.
  6. Duchy League - Saturday 11th November 2017

    2.00 pm kick offs for all Duchy Cup matches - extra time and then penalties if require. Also just a reminder that the Duchy Lge is trialling the sin bin for dissent offences.
  7. I agree entirely, it was the first time I had seen him and I was very impressed. Matthew Arthur i believe.
  8. Cornwall Charity Cup Congratulations to my old side Polperro for pulling off another superb result against Peninsula Lge opposition in the Charity Cup. Durning Lawrence Charity Cup 1st rd - Polperro 5 - 2 St Dennis ; Carharrick 7 - 1 Dobwalls; Illogan Rbl 1 - 5 Penzance; Bude 2 - 4 Liskeard ; Millbrook 2 - 2 Wadebridge (away win pens); St Blazey 2 - 0 Porthleven; St Agnes 1 - 2 Wendron;
  9. St Dennis Res v Tregrehan Mills I arrived at St Dennis at half time with the Millers from Duchy Division Two leading their Premier Division rivals 1 - 0. Within about ten minutes they were 3 nil up and looking really good. Full credit to St Dennis, their spirit & endeavour was top notch and it was 3 all with 15 minutes left. Tregrehan's strikers were pushing well forward making for tricky offside decisions for a club linesman to make and they fell foul to his flag many times but still created many more chances. At the other end St Dennis were also creating chances but the visiting 'keeper was in fine form. The home side's efforts were rewarded with a late winner and I would expect them to feature in the final stages of the competition. Excellent entertainment.
  10. Duchy League - Saturday 4th November 2017

    Foxhole Stars v Biscovey I only caught the first half of this KO Cup tie before nipping up the road to St Dennis. The Stars led 2 - 0 at the break but for me Biscovey looked slightly the better side - not much in it.

  12. Junior Cup 3rd Round Draw Date?

    Apparently it will be Monday afternoon (Nov 6th) in the County Office with a couple of shady characters from the Duchy & Trelawny Leagues overseeing 'the fix' !!
  13. I had every intention of heading to St Dominick but at 1.15 it was so bad here it felt absolutely foolish to be venturing out ! Full credit to those few clubs desperately trying to get a game on but .... is it really sensible ?
  14. First casualty of the weather appears to be Calstock v Polperro Reserves in the Lge Cup
  15. Quite correct of course and as Boscastle has already played in the Knock Out Cup they have a squad of players cup tied. If you go onto FA Fulltime and click on the date of the match you can even see which players played for them in the KO Cup.
