  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 ?

    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.

    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.
  16. Hopefully the weather wont be as bad as predicted. It always helps to know what games are definitely still ON come 11/12 o'clock Saturday morning for those of us who like to plan a trip out.

    Duchy Premier - Sticker 1 - 1 Veryan Great game at the top of the division. The more experienced and stronger visitors generally had the best of the first half but couldn't turn that advantage into goals. After the break it was the more youthful, probably more skillful home side that went ahead thanks to a cracking strike by Ashley Koppelow. Wily old Veryan campaigner Bobby Lee Johns drew the Sticker 'keeper into giving away a penalty with 15 minutes remaining and Damon Mulready slotted home the spot kick. As a neutral i thought this was a fair result and (as a not so neutral) an excellent advert for Duchy football. Well handled by visiting referee Peter Moore

    All Duchy cup games are 2.00pm kick off - extra time & penalties if required
  19. With such criticism, negativity and near offensive comments being publicly aired on the forum it's amazing anyone volunteers to do anything. Well done and good luck to the managers, clubs and players who are willing to help out the County Youth side.
  20. That's basically the FA Standard Code Rule which only applies to 'recreational' league matches and doesn't operate across different Leagues or for the County Cups.
  21. Duchy Div One - Gunnislake 1 - 1 Queens Rangers Pretty grim afternoon for the official 'opening' of Gunni's new pitch at Albaston but its during weather like this that the old Bealswood Road pitch may not have been playable so the great efforts by Mike Kinger and his colleagues have already paid off.. This was a really even match with plenty of tackle timing issues which led to a series of yellow cards. There were few chances iether way but Queens took the lead after 20 minutes through Jamie Seery and the Gunnislake equaliser came on the stroke of half time from Simon Kelly. A very welcome first point for Gunnislake.
  22. Always an interesting issue for debate this one. In principal you would hope the reserve team players would step up and fulfil the first team fixture at the expense of their own game but in reality of course :- you can't force any players to do that you would only be unfairly penalising the reserve team and does it serve any real purpose to have Duchy Four players up against a good Combination side in the Senior Cup and another Duchy Four team be awarded a game that they would have wanted to have played today ? We can only hope that Looe do the right thing and play their normal reserve team squad in their Duchy match and don't make use of the two 'senior' players that they could use.
  23. Duchy League - Saturday 23rd September 2017

    Duchy Div Four Southgate Seniors 1 - 3 Polperro Kyle Tamblyn put Polperro ahead after 15 minutes and they probably should have knocked in a couple more before the break but didn't ! I think it was Tom Cantwell who extended their lead five minutes into the second half but then they took their foot off the gas and Toby Knights deservedly got Southgate back into the game with 15 minutes remaining. The final stages were a bit scrappy and the game could have gone either way but Polperro debutant Liam Faulkner fired home to secure the points for the visitors. Once again i was impressed with the quality and endeavour from both sides at this level and i don't think seasoned referee Ivor Phillips had to brandish any cards or make use of the sin bin.
