  1. I won't even pretend to be totally neutral - absolutely delighted that my old club, Polperro, has secured the Duchy Division Four title with a 5-1 win at Week St Mary today. It will give me great pleasure to visit Killigarth and present the tophies but i'm away this week so it will have to be when St Kew visit on the 26th. Have a good night lads.

    Duchy League Cup Semi Final

    St Stephen Reserves progress to the final of the Duchy League Cup with a narrow 3-2 win over Lanreath Reserves. Lanreath opened the scoring in the early stages but St Stephen were 2-1 up by the break . Straight from the restart St Stephen extended their lead to 3-1 and looked comfortable but Lanreath came back strongly and had the better of the last half hour. They pulled a goal back and looked very likely to level matters but ran out of time. Congratulations to Saints and best wishes to Lanreath for their Launceston Cup final tomorrow. Big thanks to everyone at Nanpean, pitch in great shape and everything laid on as expected, it's a shame it wasn't better supported.

    Duchy League's first title secured

    The Third Division champions spot has also now been decided. St Stephen Reserves defeat at the hands of St Eval tonight means that Lamerton Community FC cannot be caught and are champions having been pretty much in control all season. Congratulations to our friends just across the border. The runners-up spot is still undecided, several teams are in contention.
  6. The first of the Duchy League's cup semi finals takes place this coming Saturday (May 12th) at Victoria Playing Field, Nanpean with a 2.00 pm kick off. The Bodmin Sports Trophies League Cup semi final features the reserve teams from Lanreath and St Stephen. Both are currently in Duchy Division Three, St Stephen are pushing for promotion (and still have an outside chance of winning the division) and Lanreath are Launceston Cup finalists. Match officials are listed as Richard Butter, Paul Cackett and Chris Nicholls. Admission will be £2 per adult (u16s free). The use of neutral venues for all of the League's semis was greatly debated by the committee , hopefully the decision to do this will be rewarded with a good sized crowd.

    Duchy League & Cup - Saturday 5 May 2018

    quite a bit Dave - sorry, best start again !!
  9. Stoke Climsland have been crowned champions of Duchy Division Two following a 5-1 win over St Cleer last night (Thursday). Congratulations to Lester Colwill & his colleagues. Apparently this is Stoke's first title since the good old days of the 1970s.
  10. I would have to agree with just about everything already posted. Very smoothly organised by the County FA staff and St Agnes FC. Torpoint didn't really get going today and St Stephen deserved the win. Two well taken goals, nothing much controversial and much better vibe than it would have been on a Friday night. Not a great sized crowd but that was to be expected given the location and that the two teams were from the east (again !!!) Congratulations and thanks to all concerned.

    Duchy League & Cup - Saturday 14 April 2018

    Duchy Div Two Calstock 2 - 5 Tintagel I headed down to Calstock wondering what the pitch would be like (but mostly looking forward to a pint in the Tamar Inn afterwards) and found it deserted ! One seriously bad patch on the pitch that i noticed and i doubt it will be in action any time soon. So it was back up the hill and a quick look in to see how Gunnislake's pitch was holding up, and to my surprise Calstock & Tintagel were there. The pitch was in superb condition by the way. Calstock opened brightly and took the lead after 20 minutes but Tintagel had equalised by the break and probably should have had a couple more. Three Tintacs goals in the first 20 minutes of the second half saw the game off but Calstock were never quite out of it and kept plugging away and eventually clawed another one back. In the closing stages Calstock should have scored again but a bad miss was countered by a breakaway attack which saw the scoreline rise to 2-5. No doubt that Tintagel deserved their win but Calstock were certainly not as bad as their record suggest, perhaps a player or two short of being a reasonable side at this level. All in all very enjoyable, both sides doing their bit, no moaning of note and well handled by referee Mark Hill who tries to let the game flow.

    Junior cup

    Torpoint Athletic 2 - 1 Penwith Exiles A good first half performance by Torpoint, with the evergreen Justin Norman being particularly influential in midfield, saw them to a deserved two nil lead at the break. A soft goal conceded straight from the restart left them reeling and Penwith had them in all sorts of trouble for a while. Very sad to see an obviously capable side like Penwith be so poorly disciplined on the pitch and the sustained abuse hurled at the referee post match by one of their non playing members was totally disgraceful. If Penwith had focused on their game i think they could well have got the better of a tight encounter. Looking forward to an all Duchy final once again.

    Junior cup

    I guess it has been raining in Newquay, and probably still is - anyone know if the match at Godolphin is in doubt ?
