    As a club we had a very good day the 2nds narrowly losing to a team 3 leagues higher...and the firsts gave a good account of themselves against a ruan side who had a abundance of quality which anyone would agree with when looking at today's teamsheet...thanks to the lads at penryn for hosting.. another season dusted be interesting to see what happens with the new shake ups at the league's AGMs No worries hopefully a decent amount in the kitty 👍

    Foxhole 2018-19

    Sunday 5th May 2019 Foxhole 0 Mousehole 2 (Marsden 49, Fitchett 57) Junior Cup final at Hayle Foxhole should have been out of sight by the break but were left to rue their inability to convert numerous opportunities. It wasn't top scorer Griffin's day, alas, as he twice elected to pass into an area unoccupied by team-mates when clean through, before crashing a thunderbolt against the bar, while Angove did well to turn Gilbert's close range effort over the bar. Mousehole must have known it was going to be their day when the appropriately named Hands' blatant hand-ball in the box was not spotted. With the breeze at their backs after the restart, the west Cornwall side soon went ahead with a long range drive from Marsden, who hadn't had a kick until then. The Foxes responded immediately when Griffin's deep centre was headed back by Bould for substitute Reed-Bennett to force home, only for the goal to be mysteriously ruled out. Foxhole's week of bizarre decisions going against them continued when Fitchett somehow got away with controlling a high ball with his arm, which allowed him the space to turn Whetter and fire past Bullen, while Aidan Dingle's excellent full-blooded challenge on Howes was inexplicably deemed worthy of a booking. Mousehole were able to see out time in relative comfort, and credit to them for grinding out a victory having been comprehensibly outplayed for much of the game. Foxhole (4-4-2): Matt Bullen; Nathan Papaioannou, Chris Brown, Lee Whetter, Huw Morgan; Bradley Allen, Nathan Allen, Levi Kerrigan, Martin Gilbert; Richard Griffin, Benno Bould. Subs: Lee Reed-Bennett, Jowan Dingle, Aidan Dingle, Rory Barnacle, Ryan Wilkins. Mousehole (4-4-2): Dom Angove; Matt Howes, Tom Hands, Ben Ward, James Tonkin; Jamie Simons, Joe Davies, Jason Simmonds, Callum George; Michael Fitchett, Caleb Marsden. Subs: Jacob Trudgeon, Alex Nixon, Ben Fewkes, Tom McGarry, Tom Hooper. Thanks to the officials and Hayle FC.

    You sound like a superannuated Magpies fan...you're not, are you ? If I'm reading your runes correctly, you think the Tinners were fortunate to beat Culdrose because of an incorrect refereeing decision. Were you in line with the last defender ? I am advised by one who was that Tommy Rot has made you a nocturnal visitation. How interesting, however, that over many years the little happenstances of football even themselves out. I clearly remember the Tinners losing 3-2 to Culdrose in the equivalent feature because Neil Harvey disallowed a Matt Harris "goal" that was approximately three feet over the line. On another occasion, my old chum Asa disallowed what would have been a last minute St Just winner scored by Darren Ball in a St Just-Culdrose 1-1 draw in the Cup. Subsequently, the pint Asa was presented with in the Clubhouse and the congratulatory enconium accompanying it led to a complaint to the League Management Committee. Didn't matter. The Tinners went to Culdrose and won the replay 3-0. Junior football, David187 ? Well, at least we won't have been forced into it because of physical assaults on referees, unlike the shower in Smacktown. And the pitch actually belongs to us rather than the council. Our clubhouse has never been repossessed by the brewery, nor turned into a sort of front for other kinds of business dependent on such a range of vices that they could make Babylon look like a Methodist Chapel. I know what you mean about the Combo becoming like junior football. Unfortunately that is where it has been dragged by the self-interested clique from the Porthleven bog and Helston sheltered bungalow-land. But we're founder members, the only ever-present team, and we're loyal to Cornwall despite coming from a separatist European socialist republic. As Robert Graves said in "The Cuirassiers of the Frontier", "a rotten tree lives only in its rind." Anyway, no harm done ! At least we've cancelled Brexit.

    Plymouth clubs In East cornwall

    I just believe it’s east cornwall and should be one league next year other than Plymstock as they have been in it for years should just be cornwall sides. Lakeside Elburton Parkway all last one maybe 2 seasons and then leave. Got enough teams if we have one league and also with teams from Dutchy prem that may want to step up.

    Spoken to the ref today. All in order, as I'd expect. Penwith Exiles have not broken a single rule in the two season I've been in post - they certainly weren't going to start with the title within their reach.

    There it is, bought TCFC to push forward the stadium for Cornwall...no other reason than to make the business plan as diverse as possible. Lip service to the government.

    I agree for the two finalist it used to be the highlight of most junior players life the new regime of county officials do not understand this just because one year it was raining and the pitch got a bit damaged for the senior final. Also the £60 fee to enter has got to be looked into being reduced

    Allen released!

    I'd have thought the bulk of the Truro side were way below average NLS players, otherwise they wouldn't have finished in a relegation position.
