  1. Very interesting interview with Steve Massey on last Friday's podcast (even if it did turn into lengthy monologues from him at times). Couple of points I took were that he could barely bring himself to mention Mark Goldsworthy's name (as opposed to Neil Slateford), and was quite dismissive of him as a player ("contributes little to our play outside of scoring goals") and, even though he continually evaded the question, it sounded like the departure of Glyn Hooper from his coaching job wasn't harmonious. Well done to Dave Deacon though for pressing him on answers and dragging him back on t

    2 reasons to post on here 1 it's raining up here so I can't get on the allotment 2 I can't get down to Cornwall again this year so I'll punish you by inflicting awful jokes My brother in law works at Norwich Airport , he's just been prosecuted for stealing luggage off of the carousel . He pleaded guilty and asked for 30 other cases to be taken into considerations . The Army have invented a new missile , it's called" the civil servant " it's doesn't work and can't be fired . I just checked the lottery , I rushed downstairs and said to the wife " guess what ? I've won 6 million

  5. Good luck to both Goldie and Mousehole as he will score goals and whilst it appears Mousehole have solved their issue of lack of goals from last season - more goals will be welcome there. I know I may be alone on this - but I do have to question the loyalty of some players though. Goldie is by no means alone - but last season Captain at Helston and banging his badge on his shirt after every goal (thanks to Piran Films for the highlights) - thing go awry (and like most of us I don’t know what that is at Helston) and he’s off to their rivals??? Perhaps rather than paying out signing on

  12. Maybe all previous winners (minus the scorelines) could well be inscribed on the plinth holding the Trophy, unfortunately present circumstances means that visits to the County Office are on hold, but I will look next time I'm over at Callywith.

  13. Spot on Older, it’s apparently how You-tubers and the like make their money. I wonder what the “additional content” is. Something controversial I would hope! Question 10 indicates that the magazine itself would be free so you’d want something special for your donation, unless you’re a rich philanthropist! Perhaps they should do lots of stories about how wonderful Helston are‼️

  14. Yeah remember both games Mike, got stuffed at Liskeard with half a side, they were superb on the day and you’re right WOTP I don’t remember even getting a half chance all afternoon!! Got our own back at Newquay in the Senior cup semi final a few months later though! 1-3 down I think and we took them to the cleaners 2nd half! Think I scored one and set two up that day. Think I even got star man in the old Indy!!? Good day that one Mike, funny old game!! 😁👍⚽️

  15. I watched him play for Hereford against Kings Lynn in the old Southern League or could have been the Midland League , sometime in the 60 's . At that time there were many ex. internationals and ex top players playing at that level . I'm not sure whether it was a shortage of money or a love of the game , probably the former . He played in Italy for a while and many still worship his memory even to this day . He could , and did , play in several positions for Wales and the other teams he played for . Giant of a man , a true gentleman ( the English version , not the American version , where an

    It is with regret that the death of former Hayle FC Chairman is confirmed, Shaun passed away this morning. Shaun was instrumental in rebuilding the clubhouse after the fire several years ago. The new changing rooms stand as a fitting memorial to him. R.I.P.

  17. Haha, remember those old engines well, wrap the rope around the pulley (the correct direction) and DO NOT wrap it around your thumb...you would lose it on kick back!!! But. No battery or starter motor to let you down and you could start them every time. A bit like the old crank handles on cars, saved me many a time, but again do not grip it using your thumb or you would dislocate it!!! The good old days???

  18. As there seems to be a shortage of football funny stories here's a non football story that older with his knowledge of machinery might be amused by . When I finished bluffing my way through a police career , I worked for a haulage company , my main job was washing trailers in preparation for the ministry test . We had a pressure washer driven by a single cylinder diesel engine . To start the engine you had to wrap a cord around the engine pulley , turn the engine backward off the compression stroke , push down the decompressor lever , brace your feet and pull like hell . I was away for a

  19. This is an awful lot of posts about one, admittedly, fairly competent player. It just goes to show what happens when there are no games to report on, or fight over and no officials to whinge about! If it goes on much longer it could even turn out to be(at) “ Interesting”‼️(although not while Older et al have a patch of grass to worship🌾🚜🟩).

  20. Don't think he was a regular starter. Know he was brought in from Barnstaple, guessing the trip down from North Devon was a long way to come to sit on the bench.

  21. Great signing for Mousehole, Goldie guarantees goals at SWPL level. Liam Eddy and Mattie Buchan still a great strike force by the way!! Interesting times at the top of Cornish football. Look forward to some Xmas crackers hopefully!!? 🎅🏼👍⚽️

  22. Not a lot of advantage with polythene this time of the year Breugel, in the spring to warm the ground faster it is used a lot by farmers to get the crop to market earlier. Fleece on a goalmouth (?) Not for me personally, would see no point in just doing a goalmouth. No warm ups in the goalmouths has always worked for me to protect it. I've calmed down from when the damage was done and mostly repaired it now, they got the message on the day believe me!

    Foxhole 2020-21

    Foxhole 1 (Probert 33) Perranwell 2 (Rowberry 22, Rose 83) Saturday 12th September 2020 After another tremendous display, Foxhole were unlucky to bow out of the Senior Cup against St Piran opposition who scraped through thanks to Rose's late header. With the match seemingly heading for extra time, Rose nodded home from close range past a helpless Rundle, who had performed heroically to keep his side in the tie. This was tough on the home team, who had again resisted with tenacity. Manning may have scored within moments of kick off, his effort cannoning off the keeper's legs, before P

    Foxhole 2020-21

    St Newlyn East 0 Foxhole 0 Tuesday 8th September 2020 Foxhole ground out a hard-earned point after a superb display full of grit, resilience and spirit. While the home team enjoyed a lion's share of the possession, they rarely looked capable of finding a way through a determined rearguard action. May was so well protected that he was only extended once when, in the final few minutes, a home forward finally managed to run beyond the outstanding Andrews / Kellow axis only to be denied by the keeper's legs. By that stage, Foxhole were looking every bit as likely to snatch the points, pa
