  1. Cornwall Women's Cup

    St Teath Ladies may have lost 0-18 to the holders Callington Town Ladies but the attitude shown by the home side was nothing short of exceptional. Even at 0-10 down they were still playing with smiles on their faces and enjoying their game. Lucy in the home goal had a great game and ended up playing in midfield. They nearly scored in the last ten minutes when the Cally keeper had to tip the ball over the bar with possibly her first touch of the second half. Well done St Teath Ladies!
  2. RNAS Culdrose's fall on the small and skinny people only. A real squeeze to get eight in there unless Bill Pearce is willing to share his executive box.
  3. Stick to grass pitches unless both teams are in agreement or fixture pile up

  5. TAFC Press Release - New SWPL Manager

    Are we really surprised?
  6. They were the days when players could sign on the day with referee countersigning the forms!
  7. Even the Madron keeper said to the referee that no player could appeal the penalty decision. As blatant as it comes!
  8. Just quoting full time website
  9. I recently saw a match where a neutral linesman held the corner flag during a game so the kick could be taken. I wondered if this was accepted in LOAF. Also in the 1960s I remember a game where the linesmen, players and even the referee held the ball still for dead ball kicks. The game was played in a gale at Newquay.
  10. Questions on LOAF

    Thanks. How long must a player wait until he is allowed back on?
  11. Storm v Frogpool is postponed
  12. Kyle Moore must hold his head in shame. He wasn't at fault for the goal, it was a good penalty. He conceded the penalty. A Camels player went for what looked like a 50/50 ball but the keeper took exception to this and deliberately charged at the player. A needless over reaction which cost his team their 100% record. Parkway were unlucky at the other end with great defending, top goalkeeping and a bit of luck keeping them from scoring. As one of their fans remarked "It's just one of those nights!" Credit Camelford for winning rather then blame it on a moment of madness from Parkway.
  13. Questions on LOAF

    I thought the ruling where injured players having to leave the field had been done away with. A ref last season said it had but have seen games where it is still being employed.
  14. That's what I thought but then hunger was speaking to me!! Would've had a pasty but they'd gone - before kick off!
  15. Junior Cup 3rd Round Draw Date?

    The best way to do it, and two fine administrators too!
  16. Beautiful cheeseburgers at Saltash!
  17. Part of the Falmouth plans are apparently keeping the clubhouse where it is?
  18. Several 5-5s in the east. Should praise be given to Falmouth who levelled from being three goals and then two goals down or be criticised for letting it get that way? Good game for the neutrals but St Austell must be kicking themselves!
  19. Would 5-5 be a SWPL Premier record?
  20. Cedric Newell "Sam" Real

    Just read on Twitter that Helston legend Sam Real has passed away. Mostly a one club man, save for a short spell at Truro, he was one of the most reliable keepers of the 1950s and 60s and was a Cornwall regular too.
  21. Another club folding!?

    Not letting in new teams would mean no immediate return in division 4 for Chacewater next season, should they want to start again.
  22. FA Cup

    If my incomplete records are correct Truro become only the second Cornish team to play an FA Cup tie on a Sunday.
  23. Torpoint didn't have a first half penalty, they did have a direct free kick from just outside the box.
