    Very sad news indeed, a true gentleman with whom I have had many an interesting discussion at Treyew Road and Malpas Park and on the streets of Truro. RIP Father Ken
  6. Junior Cup Quarter Final Frogpool & Cusgarne 3-0 Polperro Reserves A good game at the Richard Jory Playing Field yesterday. The frogs leaped to an early lead. Some lovely work down the right hand side from Adam Coveney and Aaron Coveney allowed Will Harding to score from a very tight angle. We doubled our lead later in the first half, more good work down the right from the Coveneys allowed Harding to take a delightful, composed touch in the box to set up Jack Froud for a fine left footed finish. The visitors had a couple of half chances in the first half but were limited by fine defensive work from Tom Campbell, Lewis Bax and Jordan Phillipps. Polperro made lots of good opportunities in the second half but were denied by fine defending on the line from Harry Payne as well as some fine stops from Callum Davis. The midfield of Sam Bromley, Harding and Sam Blackwood didn’t stop running all game. This fine work rate eventually led to a free kick about 25-yards out. Harding stepped up and arrowed it straight into the top corner. A stunning goal. We held our nerve and defended well. I bottled the man of the match shout, giving it to both Campbell and Harding after a fine result that sees us go into the final four of a 101 team competition. No matter what happens next, I couldn’t be prouder to manage this side with the fantastic Tom Gall who worked incessantly to get the pitch ready for the game. Good luck to Polperro for the rest of the season.

    Sad to hear of the passing of Canon Ken Rogers. A lovely man and great advocate of cornish football, rugby and cricket.
  9. Yep Town have applied . As I see it Town need to come in the top Two . If they come 2nd, they could get promotion IF they are one of the Nine clubs in the country with the highest points ratio to games played. I`m not sure if Argyle reserves were to finish in the top two how that effects things( ie town finishing 3rd.) On a side note Town Reserves have also applied to enter Step 6 if the first team go up . UTT Town 3 Callington 0 Another decent game yesterday with Town coming out on top. Callington are a decent team who on another day could have won this game. Town against the run of play took the lead from a breakaway which the The Callington Manager described as F@@@@@g offside many times. This kicked town on to the front foot scoring twice more in 10 minutes (Denny, High and Lever with the goals) . Callington started the second half minus the Manager as he had been sent off at halftime due to further discussions with the ref over the first goal I presume . Callington started the second half brightly and should have had a couple of goals . They hit the post from a penalty and a lad missed the target from 6 yards with only the keeper to beat. A good day for Town and a decent 151 at the game ,which is good considering City were at home as well . Onwards to Falmouth now .
  10. I spectated the St Mawgan, Foxhole Quarter Final and wasn’t left disappointed in a game that had everything and was a great advert for Duchy football. I must agree with no I in team, on the way the Mawgan side started the game. For the first 20/25 minutes they looked like a very very good footballing side. An easy finish for Mawgan to go ahead 1-0, but then an excellent cross and finish for Foxhole to get back in the game. Another good delivery, this time for Mawgan saw their centre half put them 2-1 up before half time. But between this goal and the half time whistle the Foxhole keeper pulled off two great saves to keep them in the game. Second half, I can only say I didn’t see what happened for the penalty other than a handball. Their was talk around me of a push in the back, but I can honestly say I didn’t see it. 2-2. Extra Time looked like both teams were scared to lose now, understandably. A couple of chances did come about for both sides here and there, but nothing clear cut. Until about a minute remaining in what I can say was a spectacle that in my eyes deserved a penalty shoot out. The referee had other ideas. Now I think the referee was actually okay during the match until this point. The Foxhole forward clearly wrapped both arms around the Mawgan defender to literally move him out the way, to find himself through on goal to net the winner. Even the Foxhole contingent near me were amazed to not hear the referee blow his whistle. Very disappointing way to end a game, which otherwise was an excellent battle between Duchys two top sides. The referee marred the rest of the 119 minutes and had made himself the centre of attention. Good Luck to Foxhole in the Semi Finals. I have no doubt that they will take the cup for the Duchy League. For me, the winner of this tie would have been my favourites to lift the trophy. I look forward to watching these two sides battle it out again next week, this time in the league. Which I’m sure will be a tasty affair!

    Duchy League - Saturday 16 Feb 2019

    St Newlyn East 1-2 Torpoint Athletic Torpoint XI: M.Westall, C.Westall, T.Copp, L.Gibbons, S.Rosevear, S.Trethewey, A.Brayson, J.Robertson, J.Hill, Z.Rosen, D.Hicks Subs used: J.Worth, A.Richardson, J.Charman, J.Lewis, T.Rowe Scorers: Z.Rosen, D.Hicks (pen) After back to back league draws, Torpoint headed to St Newlyn East to try and close the gap on the leading two who were battling in the Qtr Final of the Junior Cup. Torpoint tried quickly to settle into the game with M.Westall dictating the play from his own area. Some slight over playing from the Torpoint defence gave the hosts an early opportunity but the burly No.18 was unable to convert his chance. With the tenacious Brayson impressing, Torpoint began to enforce their playing style. Trethewey and Robertson were linking up well and were looking to release Rosevear as much as possible. The opening goal came when a superb clipped ball from Robertson found Rosevear in behind, with the defender unable to cope with his pace and skill he got to the by line and was able to find an unmarked Rosen at the back stick to add to his impressive number of goals. Torpoint had further opportunities with Hicks carving the hosts open on more than one occasion. However, St Newlyn soon found the equaliser. From a Torpoint corner the initial ball was cleared, with another poor ball played in St Newlyn attacked in numbers with purpose. The speed of the attack found them 3v2 in favour with Powell giving the keeper no chance. Buoyed buy this, St Newlyn went in search of a 2nd. Some neat passing from the left hand side lead to an opening from 20 yards, with Copp pressing to avoid the shot he gave away the foul however the taker was unable to trouble the Torpoint goal. With Worth entering the play for Brayson in the second half allowed Hicks to drop into more of a free position in the midfield and this showed early. Torpoint dominated the early opening in the second half. Both Rosen and Trethewey had opportunities to give Torpoint the lead but couldn't find the net with their efforts. Time was surely going to tell with Torpoint's dominance before Copp found himself lucky to only be in the sin-bin for a show of dissent. With a reshape, Hicks (emulating the career path of Dion Dublin) now found himself at CB alongside Gibbons. Hoping to keep in tight for 10min, Rosevear again found himself inside the hosts area. Under the outstretched leg of the defender he went down under contact. Once the referee Mr.Cornish pointed to the spot it was left to Hicks to cooly slot home. The pressure didn't surpress for Torpoint and St Newlyn used the extra man to their advantage. Creating multiple chances, they couldn't find a way to trouble Westall. By the time Copp re-entered the play and with fresh legs on for Torpoint the visitors were able to ensure they left with the 3 points. A great way to end our poor run against a strong St Newlyn East side. From where I was stood the 2nd half penalty did look a little soft but it's one of those you'd be annoyed if you gave away. I though Mr.Cornish did a great job in the middle, constantly talks and is willing to engage with the players. Unfortunately one of our boys let themself down in a brief moment of frustration. A big thank you to the hosts, always an enjoyable surface to play on (even if I couldn't play football for the opening 5mins 🙈) and they even managed to get food on after a gas problem at The Phesant. All the best for the remainder of the season.
  12. Premier Troon 2-3 Holman SC Not the greatest advertisement for local football as both sides who were maybe not exactly overjoyed to be playing each other for a 2nd week in a row with unbelievably a 3rd one programmed in for next week in the Dunn Cup I think we are just rebranding February ‘Troon Month’. The away sides unbeaten start to 2019 continued mainly down to Kyle Hampton taking his two chances to give the visitors a 0-2 lead which should have put the game to bed but credit to the home side and a bit of dodgy defending they dragged themselves level with 15min to go 2-2. Luckily (for us) a 3rd goal for Holmans gave us the 3 points.
  13. First thing that needs to be said said, what an advert for duchy football. Two of the strongest outfits I’ve seen play in this league for a long long time and they didn’t disappoint. In terms of the football, I didn’t know what to expect, but I expected goals and for the foxhole keeper that would have been the case. Mawgan were possessed for the first 30 minutes and made this brilliant foxhole side look like they had never kicked a ball before. Mawgan got their well deserved lead and it appeared that their running and class was too much for foxhole at this point. Then, the game changed. Two bits of class, the cross and the finish.. now that’s why foxhole can boast that they’re the top side in duchy football currently, they has created nothing and suddenly we’re back in the game. The first half looked like we’d be going in level, but once again, Mawgan scored. One of the centre backs (who were brilliant for 120minutes) scoring a volley from a well worked set price. This lead to Mawgan being the team in control again and just moments later and a minute before half time the keeper stopped St Mawgans striker from adding a third by tipping his effort into the the crossbar. Now this is what I hate about football.. slagging off a referee, but there is no way anyone can talk about this game without doing that. Foxhole knew if they could get a goal it would be hard for Mawgan, but Paul buscombe (who I must say has refereed some cracking games before) have the foxes a late Christmas present. With the centre half getting shoved from behind so much he fell over and the ball hitting his swinging arm as the result of the push, Paul buscombe pointed to the spot, which the foxhole striker calmly finished. Game on. Giving great credit to the ever organised Mawgan side, they limited foxhole to just one shot on target the whole second half but foxhole were strong in possession and controlled proceedings until the final whistle. Extra time was upon us and it was innivtable this would be the case with two fantastic sides. A very solid defensive display once again from Mawgan meant that foxhole couldn’t score down the slope - I think everyone can say, it was a half where players looked tired and struggled to create. With foxhole now going up the hill they started positively and tried getting forward, but with about 5 minutes to go, the full back that had already scored was presented with an identical chance to make it 3-2, but for what can only be described as the save of the season it remained 2-2. Now, you guessed it, time for Paul buscombe to give foxhole their birthday present too. With what I made just over a minute left before penalties, the Ball goes up in the air, the ref is a mile away from the ball and the striker for foxhole, who is experienced and does what he needs to do by pulling the centre backs shirt and elbowing him constantly to get around him , the centre back then passes the ball pass the on rushing goalkeeper and then it because a case of knocking the ball out of play for the entire back - who was fantastic may I add - but the pulling, pushing and fighting continued from the striker, by this point the referee hadn’t even got to the half way line, and the striker tapped the Ball into an empty net. With weird celebrations and awkward laughs and smiles around the ground, foxhole knew they could take what had just happened and run. Overall, foxhole will progress and carry on a great season, but I think they’ll agree and any neutral watching, this is a very good St Mawgan side who will push them all the way in the other competitions. Great credit to both sides! I hope people will understand that the referee shouldn’t be a talking point in football, but so often is, but sometimes when there is a big game like this there needs to be consideration over the appointment of the referee - inconsistent and not one, but two awful mistakes which even the foxhole supporters were keen to admit. Good luck foxhole, I’m sure duchy are behind you and I will be there to watch in the semis!
  14. Perhaps you could contact the Trelawny league to see if this band of invading Vikings from grim North exceeded the non-Cornish player quota? It’s about time the scourge of Football for All was finally stamped out in the Cornish grassroots football, maybe we could run pre-match scone making tests? Or a Cornish heritage questionnaire prior to kick off??

    One for somebody from within the club, would Parkway take promotion if a top 2 finish was achieved? The chairman is obviously very ambitious, but is it a little ahead of schedule? I would expect that discussions about this are now happening.

    Can somebody post the Bodmin line up please? Genuinely have no idea who plays for them currently, they never update their website or post anything on Twitter.

    St Newlyn East 1 Torpoint 2 Powell (SNE) A good game which on balance a draw would probably have been a fair result with both teams having periods of dominance. The game was decided by a penalty 20mins from time. The feeling was it was ‘soft’ and the little reaction from the player may indicate such but it was given and that is that. SNE must dust themselves off for next week. Good luck to Torpoint for the rest of the season.

    A good point for Bodmin at Saltash who to be fair should of been out of sight at Halftime. However credit to Bodmin side for staying in the game & getting a point. Also well done to my second favourite team Liskeard, who now look well on course to take the Championship & finish as deserved Champions after blowing away Penzance with ease yesterday at Lux Park 3-0. After speaking to a couple Liskeard player's at the petrol station they were disappointed not to of scored at least 5/6 goals .
  19. Who scored Polperro's 2nd goal. Barton scored the other two !!!

    Well done Parkway, great result and a good crowd!
  23. Available tomorrow evening at 11pm on Piran Films YouTube Channel. Have a listen to Cameron Weldon's first live commentary.
  24. I wonder what the faithful half dozen make of it. It was only a couple of months ago they were predicting a top three finish. certainly another bad day at the office today ! And they will not win either of these !
  25. On holiday with his family.
  26. Ha ha very witty. No no, I just say what I see...and what everyone else saw... the lack of celebration compared to every other goal was a key indicator to how foxhole knew they’d burgled one there. Anyway enjoy your pint in the pub with the ref.
  27. Very true. Good job they have two semi finals as their league form has been poor
