    Thanks for that 100%, appreciate it, hope you and Smokie are keeping well mate. Recorded it straight after a 12 hour night shift so don’t know how it’ll come out!? Enjoyed the hour with Ross though, had a good laugh and brought back some nice memories over the last 40 seasons! Thanks for the kind words Rob, Sticker and Dave, must admit I enjoyed my “career” anyway!! ? Don’t know how long you’ve been in Cornwall or what level you played at Zac, but I can assure you even though you don’t seem to rate it there were and are some really talented players in the SWL. Played with and against some fantastic players, some were ex pro’s and some didn’t quite make that level for one reason or another. I know I’m proud of those worthless 480 odd goals at that level anyway!! ? Must admit most of them felt good at the time!! ? I will agree that an interview with the likes of Chris or Quinny who’s a good mate of mine would be far more interesting than listening to me though!! Anyway whoever decides to tune in hope you enjoy it and have a bit of a laugh ?. #cornishfootballisdecent ?

    Yeah and I think he deserves a lot of credit today as he made a very honest decision for Perranwell's 2nd goal. The initial through ball was directed towards a player who was inactive but in what would've been offside by the previous definition. Instead Joe Ibbs-George ran from a deeper onside position to gain a 1v1 and finish to make it 0-2. It would've been a very easy spot to just play dumb and flag to protect his team but he correctly allowed play to continue. Ironically enough he made one small error (possibly) in the first half when the ball went out for a throw and was instantly met with an onslaught of jeers and "cheat" shouts. So to then put that incident to the back of his mind and carry on assisting to the best of his ability is a truly sporting act in my opinion. Well played sir ?

    Newquay 1-2 Camelford Newquay probably deserved something on the basis of their second half performance, but in the end were made to pay for their first half frailties as they went out of the Senior Cup. Camelford were the better team in the first half, the Newquay defence looked like they were midfield players having to play in the back four, no pace, no organisation, no physicallity, particulary on the right hand side where the full back looked completely out of his depth. However, despite the Camels superiority they only scored twice, with the two goals being split by a Newquay equaliser, a text book header from the very right back I was maligning earlier. Credit to the Newquay management for totally sorting out the defence during the half-time team talk, and after the break it was their turn to have the lion's share of possession and chances, only to meet a Camelford keeper in fine form and were unable to find a second equaliser. Very impressed with the pace and talent of the Newquay no. 7 who looked head and shoulders the best player on the pitch. There was one strange sequence of events midway through the second period. A Camelford forward and the Newquay keeper went up together for a high ball, collided mid-air with the keeper coming down with the ball in his hands. Play continued with the Camels player still on the floor, and maybe 10 seconds later the ref blew up fearing a head injury. Then he went and spoke with his assisstant and pointed to the penalty spot. Cue incensed Newquay players, one of whom was booked and then suddenly the decision had become a Newquay free kick! This time it was the visitors players who were audibly unhappy, saying "You can't change decisions like that ref", with the man in black's response being "I'm the ref, I can change what I want!"

    If you don’t rate the SW league what are you doing on this forum? Or a bit bitter towards Radio Cornwall or Rappo for some reason? He’s also played for Cornwall, Exeter City and in the Western League, maybe higher? Perhaps you’re a keeper he’s played against!? Don’t listen if you’re not interested or “uneducated”. This forum is here to talk about Cornish football and Cornish footballers. If you don’t rate it, go somewhere else and stop making idiotic comments.

    I believe it's due to air at 1600, but you'll be able to listen again on the iplayer. Should be a really good listen, Rappo is mr football and loves all aspects of the game. A fantastic footballer and record breaking goalscorer, but an absolute gent as well, one of the nicest blokes you'll meet.

    Scored 5 in a game past both Nige and Kev mate! Kev still reminds me now when I see him!! Only one ever to do it! ? Think they both went on to do ok though didn’t they!! Nige was sub keeper for our County Youth team in 85 when Morrish Truscott was manager. There was a lad called Trevor Prophet who was number 1!!! Always wondered what happened to him and how he must have felt seeing Nige go on to play for England, cup finals and Premier League!? Funny old game really. Been lucky 100%, played in some fantastic teams with some brilliant players. Would never have reached 2000 goals if it wasn’t for some great team mates. Let me know how the knee op goes, I need one and probably two soon! Too young at the moment apparently though! Just keep taking the 3 tablets a day until then I suppose!? Enjoy the game if its on mate ? Thanks Dave, that’s my all time favourite photo! Ball in the net, celebrating with the F Troop, my happiest days without doubt. You know me Bash, anything for a goal mate! ? Hope everyone has a nice weekend (even Zac) ?. Hope I don’t sound too Cornish on the radio!

    Exactly the same with me. Was a bit shocked there wasn't any updates, had to text my scout to find out who had scored!

    Fenman, thanks for that post! ?⚽️ You are absolutely spot on!! Would give anything just to have one of those seasons back! Nice being young and fit with good knees!! The 10 second buzz after scoring an important goal for your team is the thing I miss most! Knowing it will never happen again is a bit depressing sometimes! I do enjoy watching now though, my youngest son and a lot of mates and mates sons are all playing a decent level so good fun to watch them progress. Send me a message next time you’re down Fenman and we can have an hour talking about our eventful lives mate! (The costa’s are on me!) ?. Thanks for that fanfare, much appreciated mate! Lived with Philpy in his cottage for a bit, never a dull moment!! Top top bloke and I agree what a keeper!! Had a few kick arounds and it had to be a worldie to score past him!! Brave as a lion as well. Den another great mate and keeper! Without doubt the worst moment in my whole career breaking Dens tib and fib! Snapped my knee ligaments same time! Like you say was on 9 goals in 5 games for Exeter reserves at the time, and lost a yard after that injury, so could have been a different story but that’s football I suppose? ? Just can’t believe all the keepers I’ve played against and you break your mates leg! Affected me for a while, remember my nans 70th birthday that same night at the County Arms, turned up from the hospital on crutches and started crying halfway through the meal!! Gutted for Den, worst bit was we saw each other in Truro in the morning and was having a bit of banter about the game! It was live on Radio Cornwall and we were in the ambulance listening to it on the radio lying on our stretchers on the way to hospital!! The worst bit was as we were getting stretchered off I saw my mum and Dens mum Pam hugging each other and both crying! For all the great days I’ve had in football that was a shit one!! Yeah 100% what a player George “Turbo” Torrance was mate!! Was my captain at Falmouth and Porthleven, got to be one of the best players ever to play in the County. Frank McClintock bought George out the army when he was manager of Brentford. Turbo was a pro for them and for Maidstone before coming to Cornwall. Slaughtered me at times but he made you a better player!! Was great for us younger players at Falmouth. Would just glide over the ground and before you knew it he was clear of 4 or 5 defenders, always reminded me of Figo. Another great bloke as well ? Wadds as well 100%, they only bloke I knew who loved scoring goals more than me! Just a fox in the box! Wadds would rather lose 4-3 and score a hat-trick than win 1-0 and not score!! Predator!! Sammy goes without saying, love the bloke!! What a strike partner ??⚽️ Just looked out the window and it’s clearing up!! ??

    Who is Jake Gosling? For someone who follows Newquay and Truro should know Rappo is a legend at both clubs.

    That’s trouble with being first with the news Dave. If your source is one certain newspaper owner then the chances are that the news is, well, fake news

    Don’t tell Al that, Dave, he might explode. Isn’t Al an advocate of the late postponement? The SWPL clubs have an obligation to notify postponements to the league. I don’t think they are obliged to do the same for Leeds or Al.

    Never saw Rappo play as didn't live here then, but the guy is pretty much the definition of legend in Cornish football, and a genuinely top bloke to chat with about all things football. I'll pop the interview on iPlayer over the weekend as it definitely find it interesting. Catch you around the grounds Rappo.

    Duchy League - Saturday 3 November 2018

    Well what is the status exactly then Paul, most people use senior and junior because it is a commonly used and understood term, is higher and lower level player a better term haha. Even 21 days is to long players could miss 3/4 games, where did the figure of 21 days come from, was it researched or just picked out of thin air. Just seems an out of date rule, in the current climate of declining player participation in 11 a side football.
