    Penwith exiles coming on the forum talking about verbal and physical abuse has to be one of the most contradicting things since Dave bartlem got sin binned a couple of weeks ago.

    FT: Brislington 2 (Buck 26, 33) Plymouth Parkway 3 (Annear 12, Carter 49, Farkins 63) Parkway met Brislington for the third time this season having beaten them 5-1 at home in the FA Vase in September but losing the earlier league encounter 2-3 by a last minute own goal. Parkway made one change from last Saturday's victory at Bridport with Sam Hillson replacing the unavailable Shane Krac in midfield. Playing down the slope with a strong wind behind them, Parkway applied early pressure with Les Afful seeing his shot saved on 4 minutes. Brislington forced a couple of early corners which were comfortably defended but it was Parkway who took the lead on 12 minutes. From a long ball, Jordan Annear bravely won a header and reacted instantly to his own flick on by racing forward and, showing good control and composure, hammering home a rising shot into the top corner from just inside the box. A quality goal. The game developed into a competitive affair with the blustery conditions precluding too much quality play but it was Parkway, with Annear and Adam Carter, supported from midfield, combining well up front looking the more dangerous. A teasing cross from the right from Annear on 15 minutes just evaded the onrushing Carter. Brislington started to look dangerous down their left with Ricky Chandler and Connor Biggins prominent and linking well. Parkway had a let off on 17 minutes with Clarke Taylor picking up a loose clearance and firing just wide as Brislington came more into the game. As play swung from end to end Parkway had the next chance with Carter and Mikey Williams linking well on the right allowing Williams to cut inside and curl a good effort on target which was well saved by Chris Humphries. Both sides were guilty of overhitting too many long balls into the channels which were generally easily dealt with by both defences. On 26 minutes one such long ball was not dealt with and hesitant Parkway defending allowed Oaklan Buck to pounce on a loose, bouncing ball and prod a close range effort past Kyle Moore. Parkway almost retook the lead immediately with Annear cleverly setting Carter free only for Humphries to race from his goal and reach the ball just ahead of Carter on the edge of the box. The resulting collision required lengthy treatment for the keeper. With Parkway losing their early dominance in midfield and unable to retain possession, Brislington took the lead on 33 minutes. More good play down their left between Chandler and Biggins ended with a deep cross to the far post where the alert, unchallenged Buck nodded home. Brislington continued to threaten and almost increased their lead on 40 minutes with Biggins firing just wide. The half ended with Hillson having a speculative shot from around 40 yards comfortably saved as Parkway's early promise had faded with Brislington coming more into the game for the last 20 minutes of the half. Parkway started the second half in the ascendancy playing at a higher tempo and deservedly equalised on 49 minutes. Carter, showing admirable strength and persistence, won the ball some 30 yards out, shrugged off a couple of challenges, powered forward, rounded the keeper and finished calmly. A deserved reward for his hard working performance throughout the game so far. Parkway now looking much the sharper, created further chances with Affull having a shot blocked on 56 minutes and Tiegan Rosanquest firing narrowly over on 59. Mike Smith, returning after a 3 game suspension, replaced Affull on the hour with Williams moving to the left of midfield and Smith on the right. Smith immediately got into the game seeing his shot blocked as Parkway increased the pressure. They duly retook the lead on 63 minutes. A corner on the left was only partially cleared to Christian Pople whose intelligent ball found Jordan Trott wide on the left. Trott crossed deep to the far post with central defender Rob Farkins rising above everyone to thump a header home in his customary manner. Farkins almost repeated the dose a couple of minutes later with another header going narrowly over after good work by Smith. Reuben Kane replaced the quietly efficient Rosanquest on 74 minutes with Hillson dropping to right back and Kane slotting into central midfield. Brendan Abood was replaced by James Peart on 76 minutes as Brislington went searching for the equaliser however it was Parkway who almost increased their lead when a fierce shot from Kane was blocked after more good work by Smith. Always vulnerable with just a single goal lead, Parkway now had to display their defensive qualities as Brislington had a period in control and a powerful strike from Biggins was superbly and bravely blocked by Nick Milton around 12 yards out. On 80 minutes Stewart Yetton replaced Carter who had caused Brislington problems throughout and whose partnership with recent signing and strike partner Annear has shown early encouraging signs. Jimmy Woolland replaced Jayden Neilsen for Brislington shortly after. Parkway continued to work hard to maintain their lead but were dealt a blow on 86 minutes when they were reduced to 10 men. Smith, who had impressed since coming on, was clearly tripped just inside the Brislington half but sadly his reaction and a moment of petulance resulted in the referee consulting his assistant and subsequently showing him a straight red card. Unfortunately as this was his first game back after a 3 game ban for a previous straight red, a further increased suspension looks likely. Brislington replaced Biggins with George Saunders for the last few minutes but Parkway remained strong and saw out the game to gain yet another hard earned 3 points which sees them climb a place to 5th, ahead of Clevedon on goal difference, still with games in hand over most teams around them. Yet another win based on hard work, graft and resolve which is becoming increasingly obvious is the requirement in this league with manager Lee Hobbs no doubt heading off into the Bristol night for his birthday bash in good spirits! The M5 beckons again on Tuesday as Parkway head for 6th placed Division 1 side Wells City in the 2nd round of the Les Phillips League Cup. Next Saturday sees the visit of mid table Hallen to Bolitho Park, the first home game since the start of the build of the exciting new clubhouse project. Short term pain for long term gain.

    How about another suggestion...... How about completely ignoring the idiots on here. Big Al for example, how about not even responding to a single thing he/she posts? Soon enough if not a single soul responds to their comments, they will soon stop posting. It really is as easy as that. I stopped responding and even reading Big Als posts long time ago. My suggestion is everyone else follow suit.

    Is this forum becoming a farce?

    Christ it’s only a local football forum I doubt people needing to show their passports is really needed . I enjoy the topic discussion it’s just a few that seem to wind everyone up surly they can be suspended or something if they don’t listen to warnings.

    Is this forum becoming a farce?

    I think the main issue is a vast majority of topics on this forum no matter what the opening subject is about turn into Cornwall FA bashing or taken over by certain individuals banging on about the same old things (Big Al). It all becomes a bit boring and farsical. As mentioned above, whenever certain individuals become involved i generally don’t respond and avoid reading that topic any further, if others do that, said parody/troll/fake accounts will soon lose interest

    I would love to take the credit for the match reports, however Mr Graham Lloyd, a staunch Parkway Supporter, produces these literal masterpieces. These are also replicated in the Herald and also on the Toolstation websites. Thanks again Graham, your fans await the next instalment. RVP

    **there’s You might be up there fighting but by the sounds of it you’ll be fighting with the officials...A great attitude?? 2 players got sent off today, one of them was for being abusive to a man who gave up potentially his day away from his family to ensure players can do what they enjoy on a Saturday, and how does your squad with a great attitude thank him?? By using foul and abbusive language and attempting to attack him, if that’s the kind of team you’ve raised we’ll shame on you, that poor man, without him that game wouldn’t of been played, but I suppose In that case you would still be in the cup 🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️😂😂

    St Cleer 5-5 Ludgvan Reserves (aet; Ludgvan won 3-2 on penalties) Superb effort from the short-handed Hurlers, who made the long trip to St Cleer with a bare 11 due to a host of absences and injuries, but more-than-matched their hosts on the day. The score was level at 3-3 after 90 mins and then 5-5 after extra-time before Josh Stevens slapped Ludgvan into the next round from the spot. Well done boys!

    Yes I know what you mean sir but, there is another side to this. Supporters don't wish to hear all this foul mouthed abuse and what is more, I have spoken to dozens of supporters over the seasons who no longer bring the family to games because of all the bad language. It would be great if families started to come to matches again, but people just don't want all the foul language. Red cards for foul mouthed abuse of officials, are a must as far as I'm concerned.

    A lot of players are not the best either......but they think they are. A bit like spectators knowing more than the referee....but never willing to do it.

    Decent game at a very windy Kellaway Park today where Helston overcame Penryn 4-3. Difficult at times to play attractive football in said wind but both sides gave it their best shot with Thirkle from Helston the difference! A decent crowd of almost 100 kept interested by some good football allied with some ‘indifferent’ refereeing decisions which provided some pertinent talking points for the supporters. Man in the middle perhaps not as good as he’d like to think?

    Your going to get it I’m afraid. 9 out of 10 assistants are probably subs who don’t really want to do it so you will get odd decisions

    With the new laws regarding GDPR you'll have to be very very careful going down the road of using people's real names/verifying them through ID. Some people might start getting funny if they feel their personal information is getting shared elsewhere.....
