I have no affiliation to either team but I think it is unfair to have a go at Madron for not having the required footwear to play on 3g. 2 days is not satisfactory notice as not everyone plays on 3g in their spare time nor do they wish £20-30 for a decent pair of astro trainers for just one game. In other words Hayle are expecting Madron to collectively pay around £200-£300 for just one game. From what I have read on this site Madron have no reason to be targeted given the efforts they have made to get games on this season even if they are expecting to lose! 

Not having a go at madron but most players have firm ground (mouldies) for playing in the summer coz the ground is rock hard and these are allowed. I got some new this season for £15. I would doubt the whole squad doesn't have a few pairs between them or have footballing mates that will be wearing studs today

From watching half of the keyboard warriors, not you in general lol, but ending your sentence/statement with a ! seems to imply someone is in the wrong and therefore Madron are in the wrong on this occasion. Apologies if I have misinterpreted

I admit I have two pairs, but not everyone does and to expect them to pay £15 plus there match fee for just one game is ridiculous. #onlymyopinion

Oh yeah. No I don't expect people to have to buy one pair just for a game just thought few more might have some. Been playing for 20 years and always had pair of studs and a pair of mouldies each season (can't play football in them mind haha)

Ditto, I am one that does have a pair but I don't keep old pairs in the event other people dont. You and I are both old enough to have the funds to do it, what I dont/wouldn't have had is the time in two days to go out and get some as I work when shops are open and I refuse to buy boots online as I personally have to try them on.

If I was a 16/17 year old at college and not working then I doubt I would necessarily have the money to do so either.

On the flip side I actually support the expansion of 3g pitches for the longer term of grass roots football in order to get the games on through the shittier winter period even if that means losing the fun of walking off the pitch caked in mud.

I love the hard luck stories from Madron !

Clubs were advised at AGM that a new Astro pitch was being installed at Hayle and 2 nd and 3 rd teams would play on it .....after completion in October .

Madron were advised as normal by Hayle secretary more than the required 5 days ....NOT 2 days as claimed ! 

Their club secretary phoned me last night to say game would go ahead and no problems with footwear ....but had a couple of players missing .

Good try lads !

Gwinear 3- 4 Probus 

All credit to Gwinear who worked their socks off and probably deserved a draw.

We were woeful at best, just thankful we managed to get the 3 points thanks to a last minute winner from Connor Rhodes.

Div. 3

Newlyn NA Res (1) 3 -v- 5 (1) St Erme

Decent game played on a lumpy bumpy sticky surface. Evenly matched teams, with the score being finely balanced most of the game. At 3-4 with 10 to go, Newlyn had a golden opportunity to level it with a far post header, agonisingly wide, and St Erme not only held out, but scored again with virtually the last kick of the game. Both teams hit the bar too. Argh, Newlyn could of done with a point or 3 today, and on another day, it may have been. But well done to St Erme.

Div 4

Lizard Argyle Reserves 4-1 Penzance Reserves

Penzance much weakened with many out. 11 players including our manager of which only 6 were recognised starters. 3-0 down at half-time, a penalty to each in second half. decent attendance of roughly 35 souls.

Report to follow.

Div 1

Mawnan 12 Newlyn 1

Just nice to be back playing today after one game in 5 weeks. We started of quite slowly (which is to be expected after not much football recently) and went in at HT 3-1 up but in fairness that scoreline flattered us a bit as we didn't play that we'll and the opposition had some chances! But second half I thought we really upped it a gear and played the football we know we can play. Obviously there was more space for our forward players in the second half as Newlyn had to push forward to get the goals they needed to get them bk in the game but I thought we attacked brilliantly and really punished them second half with some great football and finishing! Great bunch of lads tho Newlyn and never gave up and the game was played in good spirits and all the best for the rest of the season 👍

Percy Stephens Cup

Falmouth DC 3-2  Mullion Reserves (aet)

DC were 2-0 up and looking comfortable despite Mullion pressing, but 2 goals in the last 5 minutes took the game to extra time.  DC won it with about 5 to go with a well taken finish.

Many thanks to The Upper Deck. www.upperdeckfalmouth.com   for the post match food.

How do you know that Madron were advised about fixture more than the 5 days required? Are you privy to this information, can you confirm this with evidence to prove your statement? The game was discussed in the bar after last weeks game and the Hayle chairman told the Madron chairman that they were hoping the goals would arrive on time but it was possible they wouldn't! Madron were told Wednesday evening that the goals had indeed arrived via the 3rd team manager to one of the Madron players, not directly to the chairman/secretary/manager as you would expect. So in essence, the game was never officially confirmed and could not have been more than the 5 days required!!

Madron's Manager and "Secretary" even had a moan the other day when a Referee called a game off because their pitch was not up to standard. Not their fault that it hadn't been cut for weeks.

I think you will find that Zebedee's knowledge of these things far exceeds yours.

That's why i asked the question! I'm sure he will have the facts to hand and be able to answer himself! What has the length of grass got to do with a game being played on 3g astro turf?

St Just Seconds 2-0 St Buryan Reserves (HT 0-0)

St Buryan dominated the game and if it wasn't for Martin Grenfell in the St Just goal they would've got the win they deserved. St Just goals from Ben Luck and Toby Angwin (again).

Nonetheless here I am on the beer with the Buryan lot, the poor sods.

Tough to take after coming back from 0-3 down, proud of all the boys today though. Onto next week we go. All the best for the rest of the season.

Read the post *****, it didn't refer to the 3g game but a previous game where Madron's pitch was not up to standard.

My point exactly!! We were discussing the game to be played on a 3g pitch but someone felt the need to have another dig at Madron! 

Totally uncalled for. You both obviously have issues with the club. But a league officer should not be on here belittling a club trying to survive, how is that helpful?

As a past player in the mining league and later the Falmouth/helston league, I still have an interest in old friends and foes.

If only there was a place I could go, and find out results and match reports for the trelawney league.....Ah yes wouldn't that be nice.

Who's the league officer that is belittling a club that cannot abide by the league rules? If you know who it is then name & shame. Unless of course you know that you're clutching at straws. Every breach of league rules is discussed and dealt with on it's merits.  No team is discriminated against. Why do you think people give up their time to try to give teams a game of football, Please feel free to volunteer to help out with managing the league.

St.Agnes 3rds 3  Rosudgeon Res. 7

A minute's silence held before kick off.

Aggie two up early on playing against the strong wind and slope but then the visitors put together some good moves/took advantage of the conditions to lead 5-2 at the break.

The home team did most of the attacking second half,as expected,with Rosuidgeon looking dangerous on breakaways.

Stithians 1 - 3 St buryan

Game played in awful wind at the showground 

 

Stivs went 1 nil up early on with a good goal from Treve Bale 

St buryan equalised straight from kick off with the right winger getting in a cross that was finished by the left winger at the far post

2nd goal was an og from myself as a dangerous near post cross following a corner not cleared properly and flicked off my shoulder into the net. To be fair it's my 1st goal in years so I'm claiming it and now off the mark for the season 😂

3rd goal was a late penalty but in truth St buryan could have been out of sight by then.

See you again for the  cup game next week
