    Bridport 0 Parkway 5

    Goals from Mikey Williams (2), Jack Calver, Adam Carter and an own goal helped Parkway cruise through a potentially awkward trip to Bridport. Keeps the Bolitho Park side's 100% start to the league going, and sets up a mouth watering clash at home on Wednesday night against Exmouth, who won away against previous leaders Bitton yesterday to keep their perfect start in place.

    Why don’t they devote the 2 pages they cover Bournemouth fc to local football!!? Does anyone in Cornwall or Devon care how a Premier League team 250 miles away are getting on to be honest? Even Forest Green Rovers!!? 2 pages, really!? Fair enough the rest but oh for the old days of the pre season pull out and photos of all the local teams we are actually interested in! Premier league is in your face non stop if I wanted to know how Bournemouth are getting on I could!! 🙄

    Thanks, Kevin, that's kind. We all do our best and, like life itself, football introduces us to the full range of human behaviour, ranging from the sublime to the obscene, mostly somewhere between. St Just can be quite an extreme place, not only geographically. As you say, I am somewhat Marmite too. Growing up there as the son of somebody who taught some of my fiercest critics at primary school but sent me off to prep school elsewhere had its influence on how I was perceived from the age of about 5. As a passionate fan from the age of 7, I only ever wanted St Just to do well. As Darren says, 75%, at least, of the clubs in the Combo before this year's dramatic shake-up have had individuals attached who paid other individuals from time to time. Why this led to my getting more flak than most others doing the same I am not sure. I don't want to be negative about anybody, but back in the seventies and eighties St Just's performance, considering that, before more recent managers, some players seldom trained, was sensational, but it couldn't last. There are two or three "stalwarts" who, to the bottom of their refilling tankards, bitterly resented their replacement by the likes of Andy Trathen, Ben Leonard, John McCallum, Andy Dyer, Shane Richards, Gary Edmunds, Gary Bell and Jerry Ede, several of whom were based in West Penwith or just beyond. Only in St Just would that be regarded as "foreign". I was once called out for "outsider" abuse because my father had actually been born elsewhere....all the way over in Marazion. To pay players or not to pay them...the debate goes on. The purist "loyal village players" position would be great if we didn't live in a poor economy where the ambitious still tend to leave the county during prime footballing years. I was away from 18 to 34 too, but not much loss there ! And back then, Dave Wadd's Penzance sought to entice the best of St Just, Marazion and Mousehole to "higher standard" football. And yes, they offered brown envelopes. Even those who epitomised club loyalty, like the sainted Will James, much older than me, were also seduced into a spell as a Magpie. That village spirit has gone now, partly because most people buy cars, most jobs require travel, and education, for all the degree courses I used to help to develop at Truro and Cornwall Colleges, is mostly up the line. It has been a long time coming. In 1969, I had to sing the verse underneath as part of the Humphry Davy School Song. Even then, our identity was defined by a melancholic awareness that we were over the hill: "As mighty waters ebb and flow Against the granite shore, So we, an ebbing tide, must go, This place be ours no more. For other waves from ocean deep Are surging in to land, Another race will take our place And bear the torch in hand........... By memory's chain we linked remain Whatever may befall Our (club) be still the first and last, Our motto "One And All."

    Ref got every decision right, Blazey management and players were just embarrassing with their antics and in front of goal, very poor side. The ref had probably been called a lot worse by the likes of Ronaldo, Rooney, Gerrard etc, I’m sure he’s not bother about little jimmy from St Blazey 😂

    FT: Bridport 0 Plymouth Parkway 5 (M Williams 35, 88, Calver 37, Carter 71, og Dovell 82) After last weeks narrow 1-0 FA Cup victory over Buckland Athletic, Parkway returned to league action at Bridport with the management opting for some early season squad rotation. Captain Shane Krac returning from suspension replaced the unavailable Jamie Lowry in midfield with Will Tinsley coming in for Aaron Bentley at right back. Curtis Damerell started up front in place of Adam Carter and Mikey Williams returned in midfield with Ryan Lane dropping to left back to replace Jordan Copp who had picked up a minor injury against Buckland. Former Parkway favourite Callum Thompson was included in the Bridport starting line up. Parkway, quickly into their stride, created an early chance on 6 minutes with a neat interchange between Tinsley, Williams and Teigan Rosenquest ending with the latter seeing his effort well blocked on the edge of the 18 yard area. A Parkway corner on 8 minutes saw a header flash wide as the Bridport defence came under early pressure however they did manage a quick break on 10 minutes with a fine covering tackle by Rob Farkins in the 18 yard box on Robinson Okumu denying the home striker a shot on target. With Bridport dropping deep and conceding space in midfield, Parkway began to dominate with Jack Calver, Krac and Billy Palfrey all prominent and Williams and Rosenquest supported by Lane and Tinsley in the wide areas creating problems for the Bridport defence. Despite this dominance of possession, Bridport held firm with Parkway’s final ball often lacking quality. Okumu picked up the game’s first yellow card on 18 minutes with an unnecessary challenge close to the touch line around halfway when under no pressure. Parkway continued to threaten and a quick break by Krac and Lane resulted in a corner which was headed just over by Farkins. As the pressure increased, a good move down the left between Palfrey and Lane on 25 minutes saw a deep cross find Williams in space on the right who cut inside but blaze his shot well wide. On 26 minutes Bridport where reduced to 10 men when Okumu received his 2nd yellow card after a rash, reckless and foolish challenge on Farkins which even seemed to dismay some of his team mates. No complaints from them. Parkway remained patient and continued to create chances with a shot being cleared off the line from another corner on 28 minutes followed by a Williams cross being laid back to Palfrey who saw his shot well saved. Bridport were being restricted to the occasional break and on 34 minutes Declan Cornish was put through only for Nick Milton to put in an important covering challenge. On 35 minutes Parkway finally broke the deadlock and took the lead their play had deserved. Confusion between the Bridport keeper Simon Wells-Burr and a defender under pressure from Williams, saw him pounce on the loose ball and stroke home from close range. The goal also delighted your correspondent who had drawn the Parkway number 7 in the first goalscorer sweepstake! A second goal soon followed when on 37 minutes an incisive passing move between Rosenquest, Lane and Palfrey saw the latter lay the ball back to Calver who fired home low into the corner from around 25 yards for his 3rd goal in 3 successive games. With Parkway continuing to push forward at will as the half came to a close, further chances were created with Rosenquest shooting just over on 42 minutes, the hard working Damerell breaking clear on 43 and also firing just over with the final action seeing another Calver strike going just wide. A dominant half by Parkway who should have scored more goals with Bridport being hard to break down but offering little up front and being hampered by being reduced to 10 men. Parkway continued to dominate the early stages of the second half and more good build up play on 47 minutes saw the dangerous overlapping Tinsley arriving at the far post only to blast his effort wide when at full stretch. Williams then saw another effort blocked on the line by the keeper on 52 minutes after more penetrating build up play down the left. Palfrey and Lane then combined well on 58 minutes to set up Damerell who saw his close range effort well saved by Wells-Burr with the keeper also saving well from the follow up shot from Krac. From the resultant corner Farkins fired over when well placed. On the hour Fletcher Williams replaced the influential Krac who had put in his customary all action shift in his first outing of the season. On 61 minutes a marauding run from the back by Milton saw him continue deep into the Bridport half with his shot finding the target forcing the keeper into another good save. On 66 minutes Antonio Costa replaced Rosenquest who once again had put in an impressive performance. With Mikey Williams and Tinsley continuing to link well down the right another cross from Tinsley flashed across the 6 yard area with no one able to get the final touch. A good penetrating run from Costa on 69 minutes saw his cross reach Farkins at the far post whose clever header into the danger area saw an acrobatic overhead kick from Palfrey fly just over. On 70 minutes Carter replaced the lively Damerell with Bridport replacing the hard working Derek Wall with Joel Hewitt. Carter made an immediate impact scoring with almost his first touch. A midfield break from Costa saw a long ball put Carter in the clear and using all his experience, took a good first touch, rounded the keeper and calmly slotted into an empty net from around 6 yards. Bridport had only been able to name 2 outfield substitutes with Ryan Leader replacing Luke White on 81 minutes. With Bridport continuing to be stretched and Parkway completely in control, a 4th goal followed on 82 minutes. A well flighted cross from the left saw the unfortunate Ryan Dovell, under pressure from Carter, slice his attempted clearance high into his own net. With the Parkway tempo now dropping slightly Bridport had a brief period of possession going forward with a long strike from Dovell on 83 minutes going well wide with Kyle Moore in the Parkway goal remaining relatively untested. Parkway had the final say with their 5th goal on 88 minutes. A strong run from deep by Costa through a retreating Bridport midfield saw his fine ball into space release Mikey Williams who went one on one with Wells-Burr who managed to get a touch with Williams reacting to the loose ball and running the ball into the unguarded goal. Another good all round Parkway display against a spirited but limited Bridport who defended well but were not helped by having to play with 10 men for the best part of an hour. Maybe with better decision making in the final third and an improvement in the quality of their final ball, Parkway could have won by a more convincing margin but a 5-0 victory sees them as the early league leaders on goal difference from 5 other teams all on 6 points. Early days but an encouraging start. Parkway will now face arguably their toughest test of the season when Exmouth Town visit Bolitho Park on Wednesday. Newly promoted Exmouth have started the season extremely well, have won all 3 of their games, conceded only 1 goal and won 1-0 at Bitton today.

    You missed the bit where a Rosudgeon player escaped a red card from the excellent volunteer ref after screaming “f**k off, you’re a f***ing cheat ref!” loud enough for everyone in the ground to hear, at a penalty decision on around 30mins. Rosudgeon definitely outplayed Troon and deserved their win, but who knows what would have happened if they played with only 10 men for over an hour. To his credit the offending player made a point of apologising to the ref at half time, and I’m sure by the time he’d cooled down he realised he and his team had a lucky escape.

    Easy one to sort change the rules one player one club only , would make registration easier , players would sign for a club and have to transfer properly , eg any fines owing , ect would have to paid before moving , and everyone could see what club they are signed for. I think Cornwall maybe the only county you can sign for multiple clubs , but I stand to be corrected on that . Would probably stop the Ringers discussions we have every season .

    No one is saying we must have silence at matches. It's the verbal abuse and intimidation of the officials that must be stopped. They do a difficult job very well most of the time. They need credit for the job they do, not abuse. Try it and see how you would like being sworn at by these foul mouthed individuals.

    I guess things may even themselves out over the season but, these early results suggest that the new league structures will make for very unbalanced leagues.

    I was at the Penzance game and, yes, it was a really poor tackle and, yes, it kicked off. There will be plenty more this season, unfortunately. The Wendron player deserved his red card and there's an argument, I guess, that Mark Vercesi deserved his too for his reaction but I've been to plenty of games where he would have just got a yellow. Decent game before that but Penzance really needed to hold on to that two goal lead.

    They can, some criticise them others defend them. Agreed it’s not nice to read about however if an official or player isn’t up to standard it’s your right to an opinion. I know we don’t have many in the county and it’s a thank less task. However they take the match fee and I pay to watch so I’m entitled to my opinion. If I think they had a great game I’ll say if they have a poor game I’ll say players and officials alike. George Patt, Kevin Knowles, Ian Roberts are just a few that I hold in high regard and there are more that I think are great officials in the county. Some not so good.

    It's nearly impossible to eradicate the occasional rash challenge during a game but dissent is something that could become a thing of the past. 10 minutes in the sin bin is not only an immediate punishment but also a chance for players to reflect upon their behaviour and hopefully learn something!
