    Haha, I'm down the end of Cornwall..Falmouth area. I do try to catch a game once a year as I met with gaz/gez a few years back..nice fella with great enthusiasm. I also like the fact that you took the step up so giving the opportunity to see how much difference there is in all of this footy. I did plan to watch last night but unfortunately was taken a bit poorly, I do not like this old age disease much at all...lol

    Think the first goal was Rosenquest . Waiting VAR . The boys were on their game last night. Excellent performance. Lowrie , Landricombe and Krac exceptional.

    FT: Plymouth Parkway 3 (Hillson 10, Williams 34, Krac 50) Bitton 0 At a blustery Bolitho Park, despite the lure of Champions League on TV, a decent crowd of 166 turned out for the heavyweight clash between 2nd placed Parkway and 3rd placed Bitton separated only by goal difference. Parkway were looking to extend their run of 12 successive wins in all competitions (10 in the league) and close the gap on leaders Willand Rovers to a single point. Due to Armed Forces commitments, Parkway had two players unavailable and 3 changes were made from last Saturday's victory at Cadbury Heath. Bitton got off to a fast start with the lively Dean Griffiths forcing Kyle Moore into an early save at the near post and then firing just over on 5 minutes. The game quickly became fast and furious with both sides playing at a high tempo and it was Parkway who struck the first blow on 10 minutes with their first real attack. An incisive build up down the right ended with Sam Hillson firing in a shot from the right flank which cannoned downwards off the underside of the bar with Teigan Rosenquest bundling the loose ball home at the far post to make sure. The referees assistant later confirmed that the ball had crossed the line from the initial shot and the goal was awarded to Hillson. No goal line technology or VAR at Bolitho yet!! The game continued at a fast pace with both sides looking well organised, physical and playing with intensity. The tricky Joe McClennan was a constant threat for Bitton down their left with Kane Ingram pulling the strings in midfield and Griffiths continuing to test the Parkway defence with his strong running. The Parkway midfield gradually started to take control and on 14 minutes a penetrating run from deep by the impressive Jamie Lowry ended with his powerful strike being saved at full length by Dan Worton. With both sides looking to utilise their flanks at every opportunity, defences continued to come under pressure but generally remained solid. Bitton almost equalised on 25 minutes after confusion between Moore and Nick Milton in the 18 yard box allowed Griffiths a shot on target which was blocked at the second attempt. With Shane Krac and the increasingly influential Lowry now gaining more possession and the customary doggedness of the unsung Christian Pople constantly breaking up play and playing simple and effective passes, Parkway gradually began to impose their authority on the game. On 29 minutes a neat exchange of passes between Lowry and Mikey Williams on the right almost breached the Bitton defence who managed to clear to safety. Bitton continued to threaten forcing Parkway to defend in numbers with both Milton and Michael Landricombe outstanding at the back winning numerous headers and tackles. Parkway continued to press with Lowry always prompting and probing for an opening and they doubled their lead on 34 minutes. Excellent hold up play wide on the right by Adam Carter saw him link neatly with Williams who took a return pass, drove into the 18 yard box and finished with aplomb for a quality goal. Bitton bounced straight back and after a free kick had been cleared, the follow up shot from around 10 yards forced an instinctive save with his feet from the alert Moore. Parkway then almost increased their lead with a powerful Carter header from a free kick being superbly saved by Worton. Play continued to fluctuate with both sides having their periods of dominance and creating some half chances but with defences holding firm, the half ended with Parkway good value for their lead. With Bitton now having to chase the game, they started the second half pushing forward forcing an early corner but it was Parkway who increased their lead on 50 minutes. A Krac free kick from the right was cleared out to Rosanquest on the left who showed good skill and awareness to set up Krac who drilled home a quality rising strike from around 18 yards. Bitton replaced Matt Groves with Josh Egan on 55 minutes as Parkway playing with high energy looked to force the pace with a strong run and cross from the left by Carter being well cut out by Worton on 58 minutes. On the hour mark Lowry, always looking comfortable and confident in possession, saw his 25 yard effort fly narrowly wide. Bitton continued to compete fiercely but the nearest they came to scoring was a wild free kick from Egan which flew well wide. Ingram sustained an injury and was replaced by Jordan Whittaker on 62 minutes. With Parkway continuing to threaten, Lowry headed just wide on 65 minutes after a smart passage of play between himself, Williams and Rosanquest. Bitton were reduced to 10 men on 68 minutes when keeper Worton was shown a straight red card for foul and abusive language to a referees assistant. Aysha Corrick took over between the sticks. Carter was then shown a yellow card apparently for retaliation after a midfield melee as tempers became frayed. The impressive Griffiths was replaced by Ben Bament on 72 minutes with Carter, who had caused the Bitton defence problems all game, being replaced up front by Jordan Annear. Bitton continued to press with Parkway dealing comfortably with their attacks and Moore rarely being called into action. Bitton's Ibrahima Diallo was booked for persistent infringement on 75 minutes as play became disjointed and at times feisty. On 78 minutes Rosanquest reacted to confusion between the replacement keeper and a defender only to fire into the side netting from a narrow angle. On 83 minutes Jack Rhead replaced Krac, who had had another fine game, and almost capped a nice little cameo with a shot from 10 yards on 86 minutes which was blocked and cleared. With 10 men Bitton now running out of steam, Parkway eased their way to the end of the game for a crucial and deserved victory against their close rivals which, with just 9 games to go, surely puts them firmly in the frame as genuine title contenders. Parkway visit Bitton in the reverse fixture in a couple of weeks time and must also visit 4th placed Westbury United. Another hard fought, gritty performance against strong opponents with moments of quality football, clinical finishing and solid defending proving to be the difference between the two sides. There is no let up in the action as Bridport visit Bolitho Park on Saturday with Parkway looking to maintain their momentum and keep the pressure on the league leaders as the season draws tow.

    Last appearance of a "senior" ground

    Remember watching Truro play Penzance at Kenwyn. If my memory is right Penzance won 5-0 and Tony Kellow scored all 5!

    I understand where teams are coming from. I’ve watched you many times this season - fantastic team - my only problem is I dont recognise 2/3/4 of your players everyweeek because usually they play their football in different shirts for different teams.. senior ones usually. Dont take anything away, you’ve had a fantastic season so far, but just from one example.. I watched you play St Mawgan in the junior cup and you had two senior players that day (one of which never plays for you according to Fa full time) the following week they weren’t there and haven’t featured since.. that is called bringing in ringers. (Don’t be disheartened guys, they still weren’t the best team even with these players). On Saturday I watched the first half and yes.. it was your usual side.. but again there appeared to be another senior player making his first appearance.. what do you guys get out of that? You have fantastic players sat on the bench and you’re going well in league and cup, just believe in your own squad rather than relying on senior teams to get you through the season - I’d be odd if they were taking my place! (14 players making no more than 2 appearances this season!) Don’t get me wrong, I watched the first half and it could have been 9-0 in one half without the seniors, but if you want to be a great duchy team then play with duchy players in my opinion.

    Well if the current owners,actually kept Leigh Robinson in the loop,and informed him of the take over,and answered his phone calls,when the manager found out on social media. Just maybe Leigh,would feel wanted. Now he has to listen to this garbage,that you are spouting. Leigh has proved ,if he is given the backing,instead of being treated like something off your shoe,he could do a job.

    My post on Cornwall Sunday League facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/376989989034023/) just now... Wendron 8 Royal Par 1 5-1 half-time Wow. That was some wind today! But credit to both teams. I had the luxury of being lino at a 45 degree angle and can confirm that some lovely football occurred from both teams despite the conditions. The Wendron lads were just too much younger, fitter, quicker, more skillful and generally better than us Vets. Apart from that, it was an even game! Superb hospitality from Lee 'Scouse' Smith and his club once again. It's a pleasure to come and play there. All the best in the semi-final lads!

    Gerrans & St Mawes 0-2 Torpoint Athletic Torpoint XI: M.Westall, C.Westall, J.White, D.Rogers, C.Bays, L.Gibbons, S.Trethewey, T.Rowe, J.Hill, B.Robbins, Z.Rosen Subs used: A.Richardson, S.Rosevear Scorers: B.Robbins(pen), Z.Rosen Torpoint travelled to deep Cornwall to look to get back to winning ways. With a few lads missing, Torpoint welcomed Jon Rosevear to the management set-up for the remainder of the season. Opening the game playing down the slope (I love these lines...). Torpoint played some neat football. Stand out player of the first half was J.Hill from the left hand side. The hosts full back was unable to cope with his direct play and tenacious attitude. The opening goal actually came from the opposite flank. CB J.White, played a clever one-two with C.Westall, then another with Gibbons before continuing his run into the box where the marauding centre half was brought down. Without failure, Robbins fired home from the spot. Torpoint created numerous chances in the remainder of the half with Rosen and Rowe hitting the woodwork. With the 2nd half ensuing and the "they won't like defending the hill" shout coming from the hosts, Torpoint knew they'd have to remain resolute in the 2nd period. GSM pressured with longer balls into their firey No.7. Silly fouls allowed the hosts multiple opportunities to level the scoreline and almost did so as they hit the post directly from a corner. With some tactical changes, Torpoint aimed to sure up defensively whilst looking to counter. GSM were lucky not to concede a 2nd with S.Rosevear and Richardson testing from the bench. Torpoint soon found their 2nd with a deflected Trethewey shot falling to Rosen to slot in from a tightly contested position. The referee looked to the linesman who was happy for the goal to stand. From here, Torpoint were able to control the rest of the game at head home with the 3 points. Good for us to get back to winning ways, I feel the scoreline could've been higher but some determined play from GSM kept the score down. I was saddened to see the abuse the home linesman received from a couple of his own players as our 2nd stood. No-one likes running the line but to be hammered by your own team mates can be a kick in the stomach. I thought the game was well managed by the referee, who I must say was an absolute man mountain (someone that could punch your soul out). All the best to GSM for the season, on to Godolphin for us next week 💛

    I see from Twitter foxhole used a st Dennis player yesterday???.. To be able to play ringers in a semi final is ridiculous...when they haven't played all season for the team. Hope both teams stick with what they have had all season ...should be a great game
