  2. WOAH! Careful there Jeff, your previous success was achieved in exactly the same way as other clubs are doing now. Falmouth nearly went bankrupt doing the same thing, but learned their lesson and now run with a bit more common sense involved, but if you climb the ladder...who knows what you may have to do again. Don't get too carried away in the moment.
  3. I was very impressed with the interview given by the Yeovil Town manager on the BBC News/Sport website this morning (I would have provided a link if only I had the skills!). He, like St. Darren, above, states that football is nothing in the scheme of things compared with racist behaviour. While clearly nervous, being interviewed on national TV news his integrity and that of his team shone out. The interview should be compulsory watching for all football managers, and more importantly all FA and County FA members across the country. You could also add the UEFA members to that too. please go and watch it, it’s only a few minutes long.
  4. Saturday 19 October 2019 - ECPL Torpoint Athletic Thirds 7, Gerrans & St Mawes Utd 3 Goals: Adam Parry (3, 34, 47), Tom Rowe (32), Chris Westall (59), Will Ferguson (64), Ronei Yousefi (84) There was a 10-goal extravaganza at The Mill as a depleted Torpoint stretched their unbeaten run to 6 games in all competitions. The game never looked beyond doubt for the home side, but some soft goals and slack defending, gifting the visitors three goals, meaning that Gerrans were always within touch. Long term injuries to Byron Robbins, James Robertson and Glen Cleland will keep them out of the side for the foreseeable future, midfielder Sam White is still in the Belize jungle wrestling snakes, while Bahroz Zad, Adam Brayson, Ash O'Rourke were all unavailable today. Young midfielder Adam Blair was called up from the U18s, while first team striker Lee Hawkins was given his first run out in 6 weeks after a calf injury. Torpoint opened the scoring as early as the third minute as Chris Westall fed striker Hawkins in the left channel, he beat his marker and squared the ball across goal to find Adam Parry who finished clinically from 6 yards. It was pretty much one way traffic from that point, with Hawkins, Parry and Sam Rosevear all finding themselves in positions that should have extended the lead. It took until the 32nd minute for Torpoint to finally do so when a right corner from Jay Hussey was volleyed off-target by Hawkins, Parry kept the ball alive though and his cross found Rosevear, whose header was missed, before Tom Rowe crashed the ball into the roof of the net from close range. Two minutes later Parry grabbed his second of the game, receiving a neat pass from Rosevear, shifting onto his left and curling past the visitors' keeper and in off the post. Gerrans were awarded a life-line on the stroke of half time when a short back pass from Jake White - who in fariness had just received treatment for a clash of knees - was intercepted and Charlie Jones who poked the ball past the stranded Matt Westall. HT 3-1. Parry completed his hat-trick within 2 minutes of the restart after great hold up play from Hawkins fed Ronei Yousefi, who run and cross was met first time by a rejuvenated Parry. At this point Torpoint threatened to run away with the game but, as has happened so many times this season, they were architects of their own downfall. Some sloppy midfield play, poor marking and failure to deal with a simple cross gave Isaac Hayhurst the freedom of the six-yard box to score. However, Torpoint rallied and Chris Westall was played in by Hawkins to make it 5-2 on 55mins and then a great run and finish by substitute Will Ferguson made it 6-2 on 64mins. Charlie Jones grabbed his second of the game for Gerrans after more poor defensive work from the home side before Ronei Yousefi got the seventh on 84mins finishing off another good move, heading in at the far post. It's always great to score 7 goals, but we can't help but be a little frustrated at the 3 conceded and the manner in which they were. The game was probably entertaining for the spectators, which is great... but we're still conceding too many soft goals! Credit to GSM who were gracious in defeat and all stayed in the bar after the game to enjoy the chilli con carne and a couple of drinks before their long trip home. Thank you lads! Torpoint (4-3-3): Matt Westall; Callum Bays, Jake White, Danny Rogers, Chris Westall; Sam Rosevear, Tom Rowe, Jay Hussey; Adam Parry, Lee Hawkins, Ronei Yousefi. Subs used: Will Ferguson (55), Ryan Steel (65), Adam Blair (74) MOM: Adam Parry
  5. Let's wait and see me proved right. ..as always. Go for it with players who care nothing about your club, who live 150 miles away and are just chasing the brown envelopes. Falmouth Town, the most successful club in Cornwall will always be bigger and better than Helston. Falmouth Town FC, a club with a local chairman, manager & players that's being run within budget and with unparalleled support. Western league. .You're avin a laff haha squawk squawk.

  8. It’s a learning disability not difficulty!!! Why should it be a learning curve? If there’s racist behaviour, walk off! The reason why UEFA wouldn’t want that is to save a football match, then they wouldn’t have to reorganise one! The thought that football is bigger then racism is truly astonishing.
  9. FT: Plymouth Parkway 4 (M.Williams 10, Krac 14, 48, Carter 26) Shepton Mallet 1(Manning 38) PARKWAY BACK ON TOP With a good crowd of 178 in attendance, Parkway played their first home game for 3 weeks against mid table Shepton Mallet. One change was made from their midweek FA Vase victory at Romsey Town with Jamie Lowry replacing Elliot Ward in midfield. Jack Calver was unavailable and new signing Craig Duff was named among the substitutes. Parkway made a quick start with Jordan Copp shooting wide inside 2 minutes with Shepton Mallet hitting back with a free kick being fired just too high on 8 minutes. Billy Palfrey then saw his shot from around 18 yards punched away by keeper Jonny Hill on 9 minutes before Parkway took the lead on 10 minutes. A strong drive forward from midfield by Lowry saw him link well with Shane Krac who found Mikey Williams wide on the right. Williams continued the momentum cutting inside and curling a fine shot into the top left hand stanchion from around 20 yards. Parkway continued to dominate with Lowry’s range and weight of passing from midfield a telling feature and soon doubled their lead. On 14 minutes another flowing move and clever movement saw Krac play a neat one two and calmly side foot into the bottom right hand corner from around 15 yards. Shepton Mallet offered little going forward with the tricky Tyrone Tucker-Dixon looking the most likely threat. Parkway continued to exploit the wide open spaces in midfield with Lowry, Krac and Palfrey dictating play forcing Shepton Mallet to defend deep. On 17 minutes a precise cross field ball from Aaron Bentley found Copp free wide on the left with his first time cross finding Krac whose snapshot was blocked and cleared away for a corner. Parkway continued to play incisive football and increased their lead on 26 minutes. The lively Krac won the ball from a hesitant Shepton Mallet midfielder and slid the ball in to Carter who slotted home with aplomb from around 12 yards. Bentley then saw his header from a corner fly just wide as Parkway continued to dominate, defending comfortably from the occasional Shepton Mallet counter attack. Parkway suffered a blow on 35 minutes when the ever dangerous Williams pulled up with an injury and was replaced by Tiegan Rosenquest. With Parkway still reorganising, the visitors pulled a goal back on 38 minutes. A free kick from the left saw Liam Watson win a free header at the far post with Kyle Moore palming the ball away and the loose ball being stabbed home from close range by Shea Manning. Parkway’s early tempo and intensity dropped for a period as Shepton Mallet, encouraged by their goal, began to come more into the game. The aggressive Manning was sin binned for dissent on 40 minutes as the visitors continued to push forward and should have reduced the lead further on 43 minutes. In an almost carbon copy of their goal, Watson again directed a far post header back into the danger area with Tucker-Dixon somehow heading up against the bar from point blank range. After an outstanding first 30 minutes from Parkway in which they completely dominated the game, with Lowry particularly impressive, their play became disjointed in the last 15 minutes with their inability to deal with a couple of set pieces giving the visitors a foothold into the game. A few words must have been said at half time as Parkway started the second half strongly. On 46 minutes Copp broke free on the right with his shot being blocked at the near post by Hill when other options were available. Continued Parkway pressure saw them awarded a free kick centrally 25 yards out on 48 minutes. Krac stepped up and curled his kick high into the top right hand corner giving Hill no chance. With Parkway well in control, another perfectly weighted ball from deep by Lowry on 50 minutes saw Palfrey break forward in to the 18 yard area only to be denied a shot by a fine covering tackle and brave goalkeeping. Palfrey was soon in action again on 58 minutes, heading just over from a right wing corner as Parkway continued to threaten. Just after the hour mark both sides began to ring the changes with debutant Duff replacing the effervescent Krac and Aaron Saviour replacing Joe Morgan for the visitors. On 68 minutes Duff almost marked his debut with a goal firing an angled drive narrowly wide of the far post from around 12 yards after more good play along the right by Copp. With Shepton Mallet offering little threat, the tempo of the game once again dropped with Parkway content to retain possession allowing Rob Farkins and Nick Milton, under no pressure, to play out slowly from the back. On 75 minutes Manning was replaced by Jack Fillingham for the visitors with Antonio Costa coming on for Ryan Lane for the hosts. With Parkway rarely under pressure defensively and continuing to dominate possession in midfield, the game gradually petered out with the final action on 87 minutes seeing a Parkway effort being ruled out for a clear offside. A competent, controlled performance from Parkway with an outstanding first 30 minutes setting the tone and effectively sealing the game despite periods of sloppiness in the latter parts of both halves. With leaders Bradford Town being held to a draw at Cribbs, the win sees Parkway return to the top of the table with a vastly superior goal difference. Not normally one to mention officials, but the performance of the referee who controlled the game in a sensible, unfussy manner is worthy of note. Parkway now make the short to trip to Newton Abott on Tuesday to take on Buckland Athletic with the improving Westbury United the visitors to Bolitho Park next Saturday.

  13. That's what's good about them mate .they're there to support the boys come what may ,and they don't just sing when they're winning .Everywhere they go ! 😁
  14. Anyone know who scored Mullions goals
  15. I think this is a subject that will rage on all season . Personally I don't like it . There are some positive aspects to it obviously but I feel that some aspects spoil the game , my particular dislike is goals disallowed because a players hand or part of his leg are offside . You could argue that his foot or hand is in an offside position even if he , or she , is facing away from the goal . From a common sense point of view are they gaining an advantage ? . If they aren't why shouldn't the goal count ? . Is all this accuracy really necessary in a simple game . If it is then how far will technology in the future go ? More importantly what is the point , other than commercial purposes , for VAR being only used at the top level of football ? Effectively you will have 2 separate sets of rules , one for the top level one for the lower levels . I also find it amusing that for the past 100 or so years , more so since the television saturation of the professional game , people have argued and fell out over whether it was a deliberate foul or an offside goal . Technology was called for , we now have the same people falling out over the way the decision was interpreted by the VAR experts and / or the referee .
  16. Could put a team out with what the fine is for not raising a side, maybe
  17. Had to laugh at th f troop singing " your defence is looking terrified, la la la la la la la la" even when they were 4 goals behind.
  18. Kernow Wanderers 0 Royal Par 4. Like a goose and turkey fighting on Christmas Eve, whoever won a stuffing is imminent. Game was won when we sliced it less than them and misplaced less passes. Skinny fries, proper sausages and hot dog rolls that weren't stale, great day for Vets football food.
  19. Didnt make Keynsham away on Saturday , but not a great result for Town. I hear it was not the best performance on the artificial Pitch .The reports suggest Town struggled with the pitch and weren`t helped too much by the Ref. But hey,it happens some times .normally when you lose. A big week coming up, Tavvy at home Wednesday. We need to bounce back. (Also might be off to watch Buckland v Parkway on Tuesday.) UTT
  20. I think in Rugby things are more black and white. VAR should only be used in football for black and white decisions such as offside and if ball is over the line. The rest is interpretation. The referees are poor and the people who do the VAR are the same referees so they’re never going to go against ‘their mate’ in the middle.
  21. Yes have to agree herbie - although perhaps 4-0 was a little flattering, it was a well deserved win for Bodmin. The penalty to give them an early lead was a little harsh, but I thought there was slight contact between the defender and the attacker. Funny how one sees it - a Bodmin supporter was adamant with me that there was no contact, while a Falmouth supporter told me the opposite, he thought the ref was correct! Lance Bailey made no mistake from 12 yards out. Anyway, while people were expecting Falmouth to get going at some stage, they never did! In the morning Bodmin announced that Mitchell had moved to Mousehole. The player has been important to Bodmin this season, with goals too, but certainly on this occasions he wasn't missed. Tom Harris got his first goal of the season not long after the half-time break and on the day I couldn't really see where Falmouth were going to get back into the contest. When Falmouth's keeper Ryan Barnes could only palm away a free-kick for skipper Nathan Summers to react the quickest and give Bodmin a 3-0 lead on 71 minutes, it was well and truly all over as a contest. Bodmin were more than able to see how the remaining 20 minutes and in fact even increase their tally with Lewis Webber scoring well into added on time. Bodmin showed off latest signing Jack Alexander acquired from St Blazey, who although I've only see him a couple times, I think he will more than do a job for his new club. So after this win, Bodmin Town remain in second place in the table, while for Falmouth it's not too early to say the title's not for them this season. However, opponents above them will not be able to take them lightly!
  22. Watching the rugby world cup, and between the 3 on the field officials and the TMO official they always seem to get the decisions spot on. And also you get to hear what they are checking for and the view of those officials. Why has VAR been so bad when they had this template already in place. In it's current form I see it as a total waste of time.
  23. It’s a learning curve St. Darren, unfortunately UEFA have learning difficulties!
