    Jack Webber's Golden Goals

    We've all seen that amazing equalising goal of Jack Webber's to take Falmouth Town into extra time of the FA Vase game last week-end. It wasn't Jack's first wonder goal as you will see in this video https://youtu.be/IjUU38877sQ

    Got to agree Hayle are every bit as good if not better facilities than blazey, away changing rooms are much nicer and bigger and I must have missed blazey's 4g pitch next door 😂 I would say the view is better at blazey especially when looking out from the changing room goal end, good luck to both teams today 😘

    Yeah agree Steve, Hayle really unlucky today! Think if Cameron scored his one on one with the keeper at 2-1 up with 10 minutes to go it would have been all over. Don’t think Blazey would have come back from that. Funny how you get little turning points in a game, credit to Blazey for the comeback. End to end stuff and plenty of positives for Patch and Shilts. If you play like that every week in the St.Piran league you won’t be far away mate. Shame there was only 50 or 60 there to see it, good game. 👍⚽️

    Haha me and Dodger were just coming back from knocks I think Leeds! Never minded Hoops borrowing my shirt mate, you could see he was a great young player only getting better and stronger every game. Turned out alright didn’t he!! 👍😀 Think Trev let me have half hour and I scored a couple so I was happy! Trev didn’t get much wrong did he! 👍⚽️⚽️ Think Hoops played wide right that day with Sammy and Ticks up front! Decent centre forward for a centre half Eric!! Brilliant bunch of boys 👌🏆🏆

    Celebration at Carharrack Club

    Not sure we’ll ever see the likes again of Barry and Bill who spent probably 25% of their lives at the pitch or the social club working hard for their club. Was brilliant to see their faces when Carharrack won the Combination league, cup and Evely Cup a few seasons ago under Popey and his lads. It was almost like a fitting reward for all that sweat over the years they both put into that pitch, changing rooms etc. Glad they were there to enjoy that, no one deserved it more than those guys for all their loyalty. Hope you have a great night Barry no one deserves it more 👏🏼👌👍

    You got it in one Dave. However I did achieve a grade 1cse in English and I find Elders comments quite hurtful lol 😉. My post was all about getting it off my chest, days like Saturday are few in our lives and watching Matts footage of that equalising goal in the 93rd minute is pure gold. Doesn't matter who you support, watching it should inspire you. Maybe it might even inspire Elder to put his dictionary away, give up his hobby as a train spotter and watch a proper team. Haha. .love it. Jeff . UTT

    Jack Webber's Golden Goals

    Jack's only other goal for Falmouth was also another special at Tavistock (won 1-0) March 2018. So only two goals from 69 appearances for Falmouth but both crucial..

    I still haven't seen much evidence to convince me that it's any good . As I said earlier , instead of moaning about the referee and their officials making mistakes , we are now moaning about the officials and the VAR operators . The other comment is , if it is incorporated permanently , how far down the structure will it go ? will it be used at Bodmin or St. Austell ? Logic would say no but then you end up with different interpretation or policing of rules at different levels . Cloughie and Shankley said that football was a simple game !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. It reminds me of the story when Rolls Royce took over the jet engine project from Sir Frank Whittle . Whittle said "its quite a simple concept " Lord Hive of Rolls Royce said " don't worry we'll soon make it complicated ".

    FT: Plymouth Parkway 5 (Calver 18, 53, Krac 36, 80, Williams 86) Chipping Sodbury Town 2 ( Brown 47, 72) PARKWAY KEEP CHIPPING AWAY Despite heavy rain overnight which continued well into the morning, the game went ahead albeit in tricky, blustery and heavy conditions with frequent showers during the game. In recognition of remembrance weekend, the Exhortation and Last Post were broadcast over the p a followed by an impeccably observed minute’s silence. A hardy crowd of 157 had braved the elements with Parkway showing 2 changes from last week’s FA Vase victory with Elliot Ward and Teigan Rosenquest replacing Jordan Copp and the Parkway Supporters Club player of the month for September Billy Palfrey. Parkway made a confident start and created an early chance against the league’s bottom side with Rosenquest seeing his effort blocked. With both teams taking time to adapt to the conditions, the visitors forced the game’s first corner on 10 minutes with a deflected shot from the edge of the 18 yard box being well saved by Kyle Moore. Parkway gradually imposed themselves on the game with midfielder Shane Krac seeing plenty of the ball and dictating play in midfield without creating too many clear cut chances. Chipping Sodbury were content to defend deep and pack the midfield denying Parkway space in key areas. Mikey Williams made a strong run from the right ending with his shot being blocked before Parkway took the lead on 18 minutes. Good build up play along the right saw the ball laid back to Jack Calver who rifled home a superb strike from around 25 yards which deceived Kieren Provis in the visitor’s goal. Parkway continued to dominate possession but their final ball often lacked quality as the visitors continued to defend well and look to play on the counter. On 23 minutes Laurie Howorth broke clear on the left with Moore doing well to save his shot as Parkway struggled to get too much forward momentum despite having the lion’s share of possession. On 26 minutes a sharp turn and shot from Adam Carter saw Provis make a fine save with his feet as the hosts continued to press. A period of Chipping Sodbury pressure saw a good build up down the right with Moore parrying a shot away on 34 minutes. From the resultant corner, the ball came back to Ewan McMillan who fired wildly over from around 18 yards. Parkway then doubled their lead on 36 minutes. After a patient build up involving some neat and tidy link play, the ball was laid back to Krac who let fly from around 30 yards leaving Provis flat footed. As the pressure increased Parkway were awarded a penalty on 38 minutes. A smart interchange along the left between Krac and Rosenquest saw the latter brought down by Provis however the normally reliable Carter saw his weak spot kick well saved by Provis who had guessed the direction correctly. Parkway suffered a blow on 40 minutes with Aaron Bentley, in attempting to meet a low cross at the far post, unfortunately sliding into the post and having to be stretchered off with Palfrey coming on in an uncustomary right back position. A workmanlike half from Parkway who should probably have made more of their possession and been more ruthless in key areas with the visitors rarely threatening and seemingly content to contain. Chipping Sodbury caught Parkway napping early in the second half pulling a goal back on 47 minutes with a corner from the left being headed home by the unchallenged Nathan Brown. With conditions deteriorating, the game went through a scrappy phase with neither side able to get any fluency into their play and both defences dealing comfortably with the occasional threat. In a rare moment of quality and control, Parkway restored their 2 goal lead on 53 minutes. A neat exchange between Krac and Williams set up Calver who once again showed his shooting ability from range by firing home a low shot from around 25 yards. Louis Beezer received the game’s first yellow card on 55 minutes and from the resultant free kick by Calver, Rob Farkins headed just over. Parkway’s Nick Milton then followed Beezer into the book as the visitors belied their lowly position by continuing to compete well and play some neat, attractive football but lacking the necessary penetration.. On the hour Jonathan Envernissi and Danon Dagbo replaced Beezer and Jack Moore respectively for the visitors with the hosts sending on Craig Duff for Carter who by his own high standards had not been at his best. Chipping Sodbury continued to plug away and reduced the lead again on 72 minutes. Brown broke away on the right and, with Parkway appealing for offside, he cut inside and beat Moore with an angled low drive for his second of the game. They then had a short period in the ascendancy causing a few anxious moments in the Parkway defence before the hosts restored their two goal relieving some growing tension around the ground. A long ball found Duff clear on the right who displayed good balance and determination by getting to the bye line and squaring the ball to the supporting Krac who, arriving late, fired high into the roof of the net from 5 yards. Chipping Sodbury made their final substitution on 82 minutes with Mohad Aliamohamed replacing McMillan. Rosenquest then made a fast break on the left with Krac just straying offside followed by Ryan Lane surging forward only to be brought down just outside the 18 yard box with the free kick coming to nothing. Parkway finally sealed the game on 86 minutes when another probing long ball found Williams racing clear along the right and showing good skill he drove into the penalty area and curled a shot around Provis from around 10 yards. With underfoot conditions a leveller, Parkway put in a hardworking, dogged performance against spirited opponents who never gave up but with a more direct approach may well have won by a greater margin and not allowed their opponents to twice reduce the deficit to a single goal. The win sees Parkway remain in second place, now only 3 points behind Bradford Town with a game in hand and a superior goal difference. Parkway continue their busy November with a rearranged visit to Exmouth Town on Wednesday in the first round of the Les Phillips League Cup before returning to Bolitho Park on Saturday when ninth placed Bitton are the visitors. Being only one of the two league fixtures to survive the weather today, massive credit must be given to groundsman Gaz Turner and Pete White for their considerable efforts in ensuring the game went ahead despite the recent heavy, persistent rain. Many thanks as always to Graham Lloyd

    I don’t quite understand how as a home side in a cup loses its “home advantage” because they couldn’t get it on the 2 previous times down to no reason of their own, how come the rule is like this?

    Top Shelf, birthdays and safe passage in the FA Vase By Mike Parrish The Bolitho grass must feel neglected at the moment with only the recent rain keeping the surface company – along with the muttering of annoyance from the groundsmen trying to keep the pitch safe from the elements. The ground has only seen 90 minutes of football played over the course of a month, but those 90 minutes may have proved key as the club look forward to a busy winter period. The manner of victory against Shepton Mallet on home soil proved Parkway have learnt from previous hiccups, as professionalism was on show for the full 90 minutes. Exciting, hardworking and always in control would sum up the result and give the club a good platform to build on, or so they thought! That platform would-be put-on hold as obstacles including the weather and floodlight failure would halt The Yellows progress. Buckland, Westbury and Exmouth Town would all be cancelled as frustration began to build and teams would begin to close the gap in the league. During that time, Bradford Town have moved six points clear at the top of the table and a clutch of teams sit nestled behind Parkway who lay in second place. Despite the frustration and rain, Lee Hobbs and his players were back in FA Vase action last weekend and showed no signs of lacking match practice. If anything, it appeared to have galvanised the squad. An is it on or off morning was put to the back of the mind as Grigg Lane and Brockenhurst was the setting for another memorable away day. Wet, difficult pitch… it didn’t matter to the players as they found their rhythm early and never looked back. Hobbs described his side as an express train over the course of the 90 minutes as he couldn’t fault his players. If the 90 minutes were like an express train, the first 30 would have to be described as a freight train, it was a joy to watch. Another inspired away goalkeeping performance kept the score down as Parkway hit three thanks to goals from Jordan Copp, Adam Carter and Teigan Rosenquest as the away fans, along with the home, applauded the team off the pitch. The day would also see a man of the match performance from birthday boy Ryan Lane. The young full back has emerged as a pivotal figure in the starting 11 of late and the players have noticed this step up in performances. Instead of a quiet word in the ear, they would give the birthday boy a drink after the game filled with more white spirit than a decorator’s van! The drink may have proved a bit dodgy, but it showed the team spirit inside the dressing room, as ‘Laney’ and the players boarded the party bus after securing safe passage into the next round of the Vase. Another Birthday would be celebrated midweek, this time manager Lee Hobbs would turn a year older, but I suspect he may not have received the same drink as Ryan Lane! He does however deserve a huge number of plaudits. The boss leads by example and in the past year alone has produced a stunning win ratio. Played 45 Won 39 Drawn 4 and lost only 2 – will he get the birthday present he’s after on the weekend, as Chipping Sodbury Town head to Bolitho. One of those two defeats came against Chipping Sodbury who could be seen as Parkways bogey team. The T Sods were the only league team the Yellows did not record a victory over last season and despite being rooted to the foot of the table this season, they will remember last season. And rightly so, a friendly, hardworking and historic club will receive a warm welcome by everyone at Bolitho on Saturday. No-one at the club has forgotten the final day of last season when the T Sods showed great understanding and respect to all the players and fans of Parkway who were pipped to the league title by Willand Rovers. Respect will show in abundance, but it will be within the 90 mins that Hobbs and his men will look to put right last season and pick up three valuable league points. Will that happen? We shall wait and see. The Bolitho grass will look forward to getting back to work and so will Hobbs and his players as they will look to make it three league wins on the spin.

    Celebration at Carharrack Club

    Hello all, On the 16th November we are having a celebration at Carharrack Social Club. After over 30 years of service, Barry Moyle has retired as Groundsman of Carharrack AFC. Anyone who knows Barry will understand how hard he worked for the Club and how difficult it would have been to stand down. Unfortunately his health and memory are deteriorating and the decision to step own was devastating. Barry will be arriving at the Club just after 8pm on the 16th, It would be lovely for him to walk into a room full of old and new faces, please come along. Hope to see you on the 16th Rachael Lewis x

    There certainly is a difference between the coasts, I've watched it for years, South coast always seems to get more rain or it clears from the north coast a few hours before here. Cancellations are the clue, it clears from down west a few hours before here and they get their games on whilst it can still be raining here, the north coast the same it seems. Obviously with our weather predominantly coming in of the Atlantic we are last to see the weather clear. The pattern of cancellations is the clue, I've seen the whole south coast off while the north coast all play, cant beat the weather as they say and its certainly been wet here, and with the temperatures still around the 10 degrees mark the grass has hardly slowed yet, ground temperature here is still at 9 degrees in November! Forecast says 2 days of heavy - ish rain...I despair!

    Award ceremonies

    In our club everyone pays! Officers with 50+ service still pay to come into the game, buy their beer and pay the membership. I do the bar and cook the food on a Saturday but still pay to watch the game. Injured players, those with no game also pay to watch the game! The theory being...if I do the gate and I have paid so will you, don't care if your son is playing...you pay! League officers, county officials and referee's, whether they have their free pass or not will not get in without a go at the 50/50 either. I love it....lol

    Great pictures. Do you mind if we use the pictures for our programme? If you had stepped foot on it then you’d know it wasn’t playable, as was your pitch which was also called off today. You can tell from the photo that the pitch is sodden. Next time you come up, would you mind refraining from swearing at someone with their son who has nothing to do with it.

    Truro 1, Blackfield and Langley 1 Bit of a yawn after Saturday at Falmouth. Hardly seven quidsworth (£5 entry, £1 carpark, £1 50/50 - I was ONE out - whoever bought the ticket after me won!) Boot and rush with an awful lot of ball in the air. All Blackfield 1st half until Niall Thompson got going after about 40 minutes. The only time Truro looked anything like it was when he ran up the right wing. 2nd half Truro a bit more lively but still playing that awful "play from the back" style which Blackfield exploited , exposing the risk of that modern tactic - SO easy to play against and tedious to watch. Then BOOM - Jamie Richards off a corner on 65 for 1 - 0. Then POP, Lerose Plummer for 1 - 1 less than 60 seconds later! And that was it, really. Not a good game to watch, Truro with few ideas in their opponent's half. Attendance apparently around the 130 mark! Replay Saturday up there, home tie v Kingstonian the prize.

    Club debts

    Players are the club, and the club are the players. If it folds then debts are repayable and all should pay if possible. How many players leave a club owing the club money...plenty I can assure you!

    Club debts

    Try looking from the clubs perspective, if all the players leave and you only have a small committee how is it fair on them to be left in debt. I think I am right in saying that all clubs are duty bound to send a record of accounts every year to their County FA. this would tell the FA how well run all clubs are.

    Well done , and in a nutshell this is why less volunteers are getting involved in club football , if you are worried about cheating , get on a course and pick up the flag and do a far better job , when you have done it for a few years come back on here and let us all know how it's done.

    Had a few chances to be honest WOTP, was on schoolboy forms at Bristol City for 18 months, was at Exeter City on non contract forms while I was at Falmouth playing for their reserves on a Wednesday afternoon every few weeks in the old Football League Combination and had a couple of weeks on trial at Halifax Town but we hardly played or trained because of the weather! Looking back not sure I was committed enough or ruthless enough to play league football, maybe not good enough? A couple of knee injuries at the wrong time didn’t help, a few mates that have played league football like Kev Miller, Banno and Gritts reckon I could have scored goals at that level but like many players I’ll never know? Happy to have done what I have and was always my ambition to play for Falmouth when my dad used to take me as a kid watching those great teams in the 70’s. Some regrets but many happy memories 👍⚽️ Like Deacs said it’s a bit different these days with players agents, social media etc, bit easier to get noticed and on the radar but still not easy to break in. Not just ability, need that bit of luck as well at the right time. As for Jordy, think he’s a great young striker who’s got a bit of everything who could easily go a long way with the right break.

    Not one official from a club turned up. We had a league official, who is an ex-member, and two guests. Very disappointing and I think the excuse that we don’t talk to clubs can’t be used anymore as we gave the perfect platform to have a good dialogue with them and it’s fallen on deaf ears.
