    Combo prediction

    We at Redruth have had to completely rebuild from last season only retaining 6 from the last squad at Porthleven.We have and are still working on our pitch despite those pesky miners and have recruited some good young players and are optimistic for the coming season.After last seasons struggle it would have been very easy to all give up but! We as a club know it will take time and as a group we battle on and it will be our turn to see the good times. Football goes in circles and at the minute we are near the bottom but we believe in our management teams and will keep going.Good luck to all teams this season and will see you all during our games

    Elburton Villa 1 v 4 Exmouth Town In many a year around SWPL football I have never witnessed an away support like 'The Town' brought today. Turned up on a double decker coach, drunk us dry, ate us out of house and home, sung and cheered all match, didnt leave until late, a pleasure to host. Any club this season that have Exmouth Town come to you then my advice is 'stock up' and make sure all your pasties in! Not the result we wanted today but a memorable day non the less.

    Ludgvan FC are so pleased to announce that they have managed to secure the services of a new manager for the SWPL team. A very warm welcome to Steve Allen from all at the Club. Nigel and Sue have worked tirelessly over the past 48 hours to secure a Senior team Ludgvan. A very big thank you for everyone's support at the friendly this evening, to all new players, Hayle FC and Penwith Exiles for your help and consideration. Very much appreciated. Onwards and upwards for The Hurlers

    You really are an absolute idiot. Your posts are the same monotonous crap. You are nothing more than a forum troll and keyboard warrior.

    I am sure sometimes you are on a wind up Si , but if you have played and been involved at a higher level , you should realise how out on a limb cornwall and football is , even though there are more football teams than rugby and cricket it is hard to generate interest and or support in basically a poor county , there are many people,involved at all levels in local football for no gain , but just for putting something back into it . If you have so called connection please feel free to use them so perhaps the FA may invest some money into grass roots football here in Cornwall, money which could help build more 3g pitches help with upgrades to changing facilities , pitches ECT if you are ever about make yourself known I am still involved with Hayle combo at present still doing the line . As for BD I must say he has put a lot of work into grass roots football and I respect that as I do anyone involved with the beautiful game down in here in Cornwall. Oh sorry forgot to say this is my personal opinion and Nothing to due with Hayle AFC , my family my employer or my cat 😁😁😁😁😁

    The game is all about "human error" - by players and officials; it's what makes it entertaining, enjoyable and unpredictable. At the highest levels, refs are subjected to untold scrutiny by TV experts - who cannot always agree whether the decision is right or wrong. If everyone would just accept the principle that the referee is always right and get on with the game (& life), it would be great for the game. My belief is that video replays should be limited to just showing the highlights (goals, near misses etc.) rather than people in front of a tv screen trying to point out mistakes by match officials.

    Hi Gents and ladies? Just to say the Combo league starts again this weekend. I’m still up for doing the reports and speaking to a few old friends on a Saturday teatime but I’m now working permanent nights so it’s a bit more of a rush trying to get to work by 8pm. If you want the coverage for your club in the following days paper can you get a little report to me by 6.30pm at the very latest please!?! Ain’t got time to chase up like I used to so here’s my contact details, email, text or a call all fine. Rappoandrach@sky.com or 07455987850. Good luck to all clubs for the season 👍⚽️

    Credit due to St Blazey for turning up with several players missing. It would have been so easy to say we cannot raise a side!!!

    As a Town can I firmly believe that Jordan is nowhere near good enough to play for anyone other than Falmouth Town! Same goes for James Ward, Dave Broglino, Joe Cooper et al. They are all rubbish and should be left to fester forever at Town. (Come on boys! Stick with us and let's win everything next year as well as go on a big Vase run. You know it makes sense!)

    Ludgvan Take over

    As far as I understand it, Mousehole have offered their help to get the club back on even footing. I’m not sure whether anything will come of this, but I do know that the Ludgvan committee are working extremely hard to keep the club going despite facing numerous setbacks already this summer. It makes sense to explore every option, whatever Mousehole’s intentions may be.

    At the end of the day , from dutchy to swpl, it’s a hobby for the refs . If you get paid expenses and £20 to £30 a game I don’t think you can complain. No one as far as I know has been forced to take up the whistle. Players get moaned and groaned at by supporters and bollocked by the manager for mistakes . If you make mistakes and have a bit of grief take it on the chin and get on with it .

    Be prepared for the sudden disappearance of a forum member until at least Saturday night and maybe beyond!!! 😂 Old Big Al is spot on with his predictions as well ain’t he!?! The Falmouth supporter that hates his own team!! 😂🤔

    They won’t be relegated this season, there ain’t any!! Perhaps they can’t pay players 50-100 quid a game to win nothing and finish 5th.

    Loyal members

    We are very proud at St Day AFC to have; Peter Grenfell (55years) Dave Searle (54 yrs) - Club Chairman Tony Evans (52 years) - President Gareth Jones (30 years) Adrian Walters (27 years) - Treasurer Clive Jones (26 years) Phil Richards (25 years) Late Kerwin Prisk (53 years before passing away in October 2014) All of these have played for the club and still now either manage, complete groundmans roles or some sort of admin in the running of the club. On top of this we have started a roll of honour which displays the names of all players who have played over 150 1st team matches and if possible the total of their club matches (2nds & 3rds)..... we are still actively counting!!! Some players now strive to see their name on that board. It's important that these people are recognised as it's something truely remarkable and not see much these days. Our Club tournament is in honour of Dave Searle and the Fair play Cups awards to the youth teams on that weekend in July is in memory of Kerwin. Big shout out to all clubman and women in all your respective clubs. Let's not also forget the partners of these long serving people too.....

    Dave Gardner Tournament 2018

    All results so far show all four clubs are evenly matched and having seen Penzance v Falmouth last week I think The Magpies are in for a successful season.

    Gutted missed a few games injured that season Mike!! Nice to be on a list with some of those names though mate! Lucky to have played with Wadds, and a couple of my hero’s Shappy and Neil. Think Jordy will do well at Tivvy, he’s just getting better and better, lovely level headed lad with a great family. Saw Westy today and he said he’s gutted to lose him but wouldn’t stand in his way of progressing obviously. Good luck Jordy 👍👌⚽️

    St blazey

    Not an ideal situation but with a few players away tonight, holiday, work and injury we were scraping the barrel. 3 goalkeepers played in that 11. It was play it or cancel it and it's not fair or right in my opinion to cancel it. Healthy 100 plus crowd. Saltash loose out the gate money and food money and no game. Fair play to the 11 who played and did what they could. It's no reflection on the side we will have. Very anoying as today should have been a very good test.

    Mousehole Thirds Fold

    Crazy. Haven't even started season yet. Money talks I guess. We at Frogpool reserves decided to start our season earlier then normal because of the weather ( normally wait till after our annual memorial match). Now lost Mousehole game and storm game might be in doubt! Hope they manage to get some players together. As for marazionhole this kind of thing leaves a bitter taste in the mouth. People start resenting these kind of clubs/teams where they take over a whole team (carharrack at combo spring to mind) and leave everyone else in the shit. It's recreational football. What happened to just having a game and having a beer win lose or draw. Now it's about paying players/teams/managers to go through the league's. I'm glad I'm coming to end of my career as having played for 20 years I'm starting to hate the way the game is now....

    From past experience, squad announcements are only the start of it. Things tend to shake out as pre-season goes on, then into the start of the season as players don't get the game time they expected/were promised, or the signings for the rest of the squad don't materialise. Used to love the supplement that the Indy produced at the start of each season (would be good to see it back, hint), it was entertaining to spot the players appearing in multiple team groups.
