    Saltash v Parkway

    Think it’s all a bit OTT! When 2 teams know each other so well these results happen! All the pressure on Parkway on the night added to that. Ryan is a quality striker who will get you 30/40 goals once he settles no danger, Matt a proven and well respected sought after coach, Hobbsy knows local football and players as well as anyone and will get his teams motivated, and I still fancy Parkway to win the league over a season and progress. Yeah shame to go out the cup early doors but ain’t a disaster apart from some half decent prize money, Parkway will be fine. Congrats to Dane and Saltash, what

  4. Charming. I assume the referee was to blame for you conceding 6 goals at your home ground? Another case of blame the ref when your team don’t perform. @100%cornish usually gives a good account of any game he watches and thinks the referee had a good game! If such chants were directed at the referee during the game I hope he adds that to his match report and the club are made to face the consequences. Perhaps then people will start to change their ways & attitudes and the steady decline in referee numbers might slow down!

  8. I've absolutely seen some referees have stinkers, and I think that when that happens it should be noted - not in the form of screaming and shouting, however, a sensible comment on a forum about a poor performance doesn't really seem that out of line. However, that criticism needs to be even handed. The referees are generally commensurate with the level of football at which they're officiating. In a match where you will see any number of sliced clearances, misplaced passes, botched control and mistimed tackles, can you really also expect a referee to get every single thing correct? I of

    Lockdown?

    It would help if people stick to the rules! Social distancing between spectators leaves a lot to be desired. Also the use of changing rooms seem to vary between clubs.

  16. Commend Helston as a club in many ways, think they’ve done some excellent work in the last few seasons but surely reducing the crowd which is only a maximum of 300 around a whole football pitch anyway to 150 just before Falmouths F Troop come to town is a bit underhand and a “dig” at Falmouth? Mind games and all that spring to mind here!? Can’t think of many clubs in the league (if any) that could afford to lose quite probably 150 x £5 = £750 through the gate just to get at their opponents?

  17. You don’t need to write anything down for them. When you get to the entrance, they will simply ask for a name and contact number. One entry per car is sufficient which will cover all the occupants.

  18. Agree with the ruling. But can everyone take a moment to remember that every club in our league is ran by volunteers. During the current climate, working full time, running clubs, teams, training, etc, missing a team sheet might be the least of someone's worries? Why would you want league member clubs to be hit financially? How about improving your own club's reputation by offering some guidance or a helping hand? My own team sheets lacked as much detail as St Newlyn's on the opening weekend, so I contacted them and asked how, and they got back to me and educated me on how I can add extra deta

  20. For a referee to make a decision, the players or/and managers must put the referee into a situation where he/she has to make a decision. I don't think I've had a bad game as a referee - I've made poor decisions based on what I've seen and to some extent, what I thought I'd seen. A good example of this was when I sent off the Pendeen striker for a headbutt on a Porthleven goalie last season. From where i stood, with a clear line of sight, I saw the player push his head into the keepers chest at speed and duly sent off after the keeper went down like he'd been shot. It was only later t

  21. Trelawney Div 4 Carharrack 5, Constantine 2nds 2 Whilst about 420 souls were suffering a dour 1 - 0 win by Truro at Treyew Road, about 35 souls were treated to a seven goal contest at Ting Tang - and all for free! 1 - 0 (16 minutes) - good layback followed by 1st time low drive to beat the 'keeper just inside the post. 2 - 0 (21) (pen) - no way a pen, a shoulder-to-shoulder challenge - but Will ? tucked it neatly home. There followed a lot of pressure by Carharrack, playing down the slope, bringing a couple of fine saves out of the Constantine 'keeper. 3 - 0 (68)

  23. You are correct, of course. But the point still strands, £6 is not unreasonable or a rip off. As volunteers, we give our time for free to ensure our clubs run. Part of that is making sure the books balance. It is a thankless task of course and there is always somebody out there that can do better (actually do better, and there are those who talk a good job), All of us at clubs would like more volunteers. We are lucky at Newquay, we have a wide ranging skill set at the club, with some relatively young blood. Many clubs have elderly committees that can't attract a younger age range. Maybe some

    Friday 4th September result

    Strange old first week of the season really, the Parkway FA cup result, this game last night with Bodmin losing and Penryn in the SPL losing against a team they beat 3 times by 4 goals last season. Shows you nothing is guaranteed in football and teams raise their game against the top sides and favourites!! That’s why we love footie I suppose!!? What’s the betting there’s a few more shock results coming up this weekend!!? 👍👌⚽️

  29. This offer and similar have been made several times over the last couple of years. He always goes to ground, refusing to engage, in the same way that he did when offered the chance to talk to club officials re ground move/developments. But the alleged prohibitive cost of entry (anyone know how much entry is for OAP's at Falmouth?) is only one of a whole list of reasons that he has given; wrong day, wrong time of day, wrong weather, too far to travel, too much rubble near the entrance, etc etc etc. And yet he is an expert on all matters Falmouth and football in Cornwall in general wit

    Back from watching a fine display from St Blazey , in the 1st half myfav player Adam Carter missed a sitter when 1on 1 with Blaey keeper Jordan Duffy who made a fine save , Bodmin went 1-0 up just before half time with a fine Dan Jennings goal in the 2nd haf which Blazey dominated and could of won this game if it wasnt for the impressive goalkeeping of Bodmins Ollie Chenoweth 1 save a point blank header by Kenny .This was a fine display by St Blazey and very poor from Bodmin who even had ex Parkway player Teigan Rosenquest playing for them .Blazey equalised with a blockbuster goal from the ou

  34. I've been in football for 53 years and have never seen or heard anything you purport to in your post. Referee's get the odd decision wrong in our eyes, but, we are not standing where they are...so we dont actually see what they see...think about it. I dont recall in all my time a referee have a "bad" game, I've never heard a referee openly shout and swear at a player or a spectator! I've seen and heard them take disgusting abuse and language from players and spectators, nothing remotely similar to your post. I will put your post down to a vivid imagination?

  37. Wednesday nights match between St Blazey and Liskeard is ON. St Blazey have hired in 2 portable floodlights with 4 lights on each one to make sure there is enough lights to cover the grandstand side. Last week supporters were given refunds although several left early. See Chris on the gate tomorrow night with any issues and he will sort things out if you are able to make it. Should be a good match. Come and enjoy some good local football.

    Parkway v Exmouth

    Just back from watching a great battle between parkway and exmouth tonight at Bolitho Thought parkway dominated the first half without really testing the keeper and exmouth defended brilliantly untill the best player on the pitch Harrison Davies put in a quality ball That was finished off to put parkway 1 up. The 2nd half parkway seem to come out a little sluggish and let exmouth get back into the game. Lots of arguments between players , people getting on each other backs. Eventually a Great ball from Ryan Richards found mikey Williams who poked it home to give parkway breathing

  39. General misdemeanour on display during that short video is nothing short of abhorrent. Seems sadly, this league has a plethora of thuggish brutes who wish to cause havoc on a pitch rather than get on with the game. It really doesn't do grassroots football any favours but stalwarts will say it's 'grit and determination'. Absolutely no need whatsoever to endanger an opponent simply for the cost of winning in my humble opinion. You can be competitive without being a nasty piece of work.

  41. We can only apologise for tonights issues with the lights. A surge or power has stopped some lights coming on. We left the lights on after the game and by 9.45 this was how it looked. Really disappointing but nothing we could do. We actually have an electrian coming tomorrow and have received other quotes to get the work completed to upgrade the lights. A job we had planned on doing over the summer but with covid its been a challenge to even get someone to look at the floodlights. Apologies to everyone at Newquay A.F.C and everyone who came to watch on what was a perfect evening fo

  42. I feel I should defend Saltash having put these photos out there. Completely get where you're coming from Bruegel, and as Dave implied - the authorities will surely be looking at compliance. That main picture of the stand, it may not look like social distancing but an element of that is the perspective and angle - that stand was probably about half full if you looked from the front. In addition, the majority of fans were well spread out right around the pitch in (what appeared to me to be) family/small friendship sized groups.

    Saltash v Parkway

    Wow. the one comment that makes me want to post is celebrating like we won the World Cup. I did definitely as a fan, don’t want to speak on the teams behalf to how they would class their celebrations, I’m guessing they would say the same, true spirit they put in etc. This was a big win for Saltash, summer of change etc. Parkway have two so should know about that. Each man did their job superbly. Plus add 6 months away from footy, look at the post where because we lost 6-2 it was put our recent years build had gone to bits. See it as credit, I saw Parkway as a successful c
