  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  7. 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

  8. 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)

  10. 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

  11. Nice to be back!! City secured their first 3 points of the new season thanks to a 73rd minute goal from Rocky Neal. It should really have been a bigger winning margin as Truro's creative and pacy play gave them a plethora of chances with the final touch just failing them. Attendance was 420. Credit to the club for all the safety, distancing and sanitizing arrangements which were well organised and gave a feeling of being in a safe environment.

  12. 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?

Ollie Pinnell goes off with a dislocated shoulder on comes Phil Lowry not long after coming on Lowry is sent off for a ba

  19. On the day of the match, if you see anything that concerns you then you must report it to the home team Club Secretary or an Official of the SWPL (nearly always a Committee Member or Referee Assessor present). This gives them the opportunity to address the matter immediately. If neither option is available then Players and Benches can raise their concerns with the Referee who is obliged to pass on complaints to the League. It is the responsibility of each and every one of us to uphold Law and keep us all safe.

  21. The SWPL are trying their best to see that we are able to continue to watch our teams play each week and if we stick to the rules that is a possibility. What we don't need are the people who think it is a huge joke to ignore the LAW as it now is, and ruin the chances of our weekly dose of football. Whatever your opinion of Covid 19 and its effects are, the situation is that if teams, clubs or supporters choose to ignore the law, we stand a very good chance of being closed down for an indefinite period that could well see the demise of some clubs. People who think that the covid19 pandemi

  22. 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.

  24. Another win for parkway and I thought they were superb 2nd half very much the same as the exmouth game you can see the pre season fitness is helping in later stages of the game Levi and Ryan Richards need to start regularly I think that could be a brilliant partnership with tons of goals . Matt wright doesn’t seem fit or is struggling a little. He doesn’t really offer what carter did with his size . Great start to the league just hope it’s not all stoped agsin by covid

    Wouldn't mind betting a tenner Ryan gets 40+ in all competitions this season if hopefully he has an injury free season. Never seen a problem with his attitude the times I've watched him play, like to think I'd recognise a quality striker and Ryan is certainly that 👌👍⚽️

  32. Dropship FC 2 - 1 Frogpool Dropship FC welcomed Frogpool to Memorial park for what was the first ever Junior Cup game for the home side. Both teams started well and tried to play football when they could. Both teams started playing in a direct manner, with plenty of long "killer" balls being put over the defence on both sides with the hope of catching out the opposition defenders. Both teams had chances during the first half hour however it was Frogpool's Dean Goulding that struck lucky with a decent strike from 30 yards. The ball was straight at the Dropship FC goalkeeper however,

  33. We have just bought a sanitizing/sterilising misting machine, after normal cleaning we can sterilise changing rooms in roughly 1 minute, ideal for a quick turn around of players. Toilets 30 seconds, corridors 2 minutes and main room 2 to 3 minutes...good kit buddy.

Probus 1 (Lewis Hawkins) Stithians 0 Premier Division It was good to play my first league game since the middle of March now that cricket has finished - the longest run I’ve had of not playing football since I started playing a few years ago because of COVID-19! Nice to see a few new faces in our squad this season. The game itself was a tight affair with very few chances for either team. It was 0-0 at halftime but we felt we just shaded it without really creating too much and Stithians were always dangerous with their direct approach. The second half was much the same until we br

  39. Paul does a great job as groundsman, many hours spent at the club so 2 teams can rock up and kick a ball about for 90 minutes and go home again, but floodlight repairs are a specialist job, which is not going to be cheap, and I’m guessing not overly easy to arrange in the midst of a global pandemic, when people are still furloughed. credit to Paul/St Blazey for trying to arrange a temporary solution to the floodlights, just a pity it didn’t provide enough light. The old adage of no ref = no game isn’t strictly true, as we’ve seen many times down here. Hats off to all the ground

    Quite a few chances there for good ECPL sides to take some big SPL scalps!! Banana skin ties for Illogan, Penryn, St.Mawgan and Perranwell. Couple of nice “derbies” as well, Holmans v Redruth and Rosudgeon v Ludgvan. Good draw 👍🏆

  43. Watched the incident back on the excellent Piran Films coverage of the highlights. Had about 10 looks at it and it looks to me that each player is doing exactly what they should be! Excellent brave goalkeeping from Cory, good shielding from the defender, and Matty chasing the ball down like any striker would. Looked like Matty had half a hand on the defenders back but no suggestion of a push at all in my opinion! Not even a yellow card for me! Hope Cory is back between the sticks soon and Matty doesn't miss any games through an undeserved suspension. ⚽️👍 sorry driving to Scotland and notice

    Foul language towards officials should have brought more red cards. Parkway keeper has long time form for this. If the officials are weak this will never end. Crowds don't like it and many stay away because of it.

  49. Yes, we do charge £6 for entry to watch Newquay. We haven't had an income since March, like all clubs. However, we are refurbishing the clubhouse and Canteen, which doesn't come for free. We also repaired the roof of the clubhouse, which again really wasn't a cheap job. We are upgrading our floodlights, again... not cheap. We have played two home games where we have had to pay to use another ground, so no actual income coming in. Many clubs at our level across the country charge £6. A friend of mine is chairman at Atherton LR in the NWCFL and they have charged £6 for the last two seasons. We c
