  1. Falmouth Town 2. Bradford Town 1. Wow! What a game! Falmouth Town should have been out of sight by 10 minutes into the 2nd half after missing several excellent chances. What followed was classic cup football in front of a massive crowd of 570 apparently. As the kids don't pay and there were about 100 of them on the pitch at half time, the actual crowd was much bigger. Heady times for Falmouth. Back to the game and Falmouth went ahead from a Jack Bray-Evans header after a couple of minutes. Bradford gradually played their way into the game and the crowd could tell they were no pushovers. The rest of the half was fairly even with Bradford probably having the best of the general play but Town looking good on the break. Town scored their 2nd goal towards the end of the 1st half after the excellent Luke Barner was judged to have been brought down after tricky work from Luke Brabyn. 2-0 at half-time. The 2nd half started with a missed one on one from Brabyn. Bradford then started taking control with their #11 running at the Falmouth defence at every opportunity. Things started going wrong for the home team after about 10 minutes with a goalmouth scramble which resulted in a goal for Bradford. A scuffle ensued and the impressive Bradford #9 and, critica!ly, Kirk Davies being booked along with Falmouth keeper Ryan Barnes I believe. A few minutes later and the aforementioned Bradford #11 attacked down the left hand side. Kirk Davies made a tackle adjudged to have been late and he was off! Bradford stepped things up again and won a penalty with about 25 minutes to go. Cue Ryan Barnes with a game-saving stop to the delight of the F-Troop. Falmouth changed their shape and personnel with Alex Wharton and Scott Kellow on for Jack Bray-Evans and Tim Nixon. They then managed to control the next 15 minutes a little better. However, the last 10 minutes was all Bradford. Some amazing saves and clearances from Falmouth where James Ward, Toby Clarke and Andreas Calleja-Stayne were immense. An amazing game which Falmouth were in the end lucky to get through. Cup football at its best in front of another big home crowd. Let's hope for another home draw as this crowd really can be the difference in tight games like this. UP THE TOWN!!

  2. Great reports lads . Very honest and accurate they dominated first half but lack of composure in front of goal apart from aps finish . Are keeper sladey made some Lully saves . Second half great team talk by the Gaffa’s pointed a few things out and second half the lads took it on board and went out and delivered a great second half performance. We was on top all second half and against the run of play the ref played advantage let Lorenz have a shot the pulled it back very strange . Resulting in a Gilbert’s free kick , it was a beauty. We didn’t drop are heads and a lovely move down the right hand side between oli Newton and josh Harris whipped a Lully cross in and I tried and audacious scissor kick and smashed it top bin keeper hand no chance. Great game always enjoy playing Liskeard big battles between the centre half’s and my self . As for me being pushed into the wall first half it’s one of those I had the ball between my legs stopped there skipper jack podmore from getting it quick and yeah he did push me in the back , he new what he was doing if he wasn’t already on a yellow he prob would of got one .middle mans mate the Lino said he didn’t see it . He was 3 yards away .. but did I make a meal of it . Of course 😂 . nice to silly billy was there and only wrote an negative comment again this guy 🤫 no match report just little digs at the waltz again 🥴. The wall is fine btw .my legs ain’t tho got a right kicking🤕 Nice to see a big crowd there getting bigger and bigger . We must be doing something right . Never great to lose but the lads can hold there heads up high . Did I mention my goal 🤔👀🔥🔥 ✂️🔝🗑s cheers @bothsidesofthetamar wasn’t bad was it 🤙🤙🔥CAMAAN 12 in 14 games another game another Goal 🤫🤫🤫🤫

  3. I like to think you're right Peter, I laugh things off feeling happy to have already seen off 85 years, 2 years ago in Portugal members of the group of England Travel Club members I am part off were creating a laugh a minute holding an Ivor mock wake recalling various events involving me when things went wrong, like getting lost 3 times in Sevilla when unable to walk as fast as everyone else, the coach firm changing the schedule without telling me ending up at 2.30am on the Strip in Albufeira about 15 miles from my hotel, another Portuguese trip with a heart problem I could not walk any further, distressed the friend I was with forced a car to stop the driver could not speak English, my friend got his mobile out typed a message and hit translation that did the trick and got me a lift to the coach terminal. there have been many memories shared with many people a good reason to stay around.

    Ian I think the modern penchant for good players ( and Jordy is a cracking good player) playing well below the standard they are capable of playing has helped Jordy somewhat. Nanpean regularly have regularly hit double figures in the last couple of seasons ( and they might again in 2 weeks time against Lostwithiel ) has certainly helped JW achieve his incredible record. Rappo however always tested himself a the highest level he could play in his prime and that makes his goal scoring achievements more worthy in my opinion!! Cheers Bill.

  5. Were Helston not in the Vase today? I don't see their result. Thought they were playing a side a league below them. Guess I'll have to wait to watch the Piran Films video.

  6. St Dominick 4-1 Penryn (Southeard) A decent game to be fair, very lively 1st half, both teams not happy about having a goal disallowed each for offside. Went in at ht 1-1. 2nd half St Dominick took over & were deserved winners. St Dominick awarded 3 penalties & scored all 3. Penryn went up there with bare 11 but battled until the end, brought us back down to earth after pumping most teams in our league recently. Pitch was decent & the spread put on at the pub was the best we have ever had. Best of luck to St Dominick, will take a very good side to beat them.

    Fantastic turn out for Poweller today, must have been 250 people outside the church paying their respects to a top bloke. Lovely service and eulogy, could have picked some great teams from all Powellers old team mates and opponents that were there today. Fitting send off, just far too soon. God bless Duncs 👍⚽️💛🖤

  8. Just arrived home from Launceston versus Liskeard athletic. What a game that was ! Liskeard absolutely outplayed Launceston in the first half but only managed to get a 1-0 lead mainly due to poor finishing and good goalkeeping. They definitely deserved the lead at halftime but Launceston were always in the game. The second half began with Launceston pressure from the off which continued until quite late in the game when Liskeard managed to score a second goal from a free kick which I believe was their only shot of the half. Somehow Launceston still managed to come back at them and scored (Ben Waters)with just a few minutes left on the referees watch and took the game to Liskeard right until the very end and final whistle. A very entertaining game although littered with fouls and some rather poor decisions on a couple of occasion but in the main was well controlled by the official liskeard will have been very worried tonight in the second period but just about had enough in the tank to take the points. Entertainment 9/10 Pasties 10/10 The Waltz … Outstanding and a total pain !! 😂

  9. Saturday's tie could have gone either way (lookingat highlight chances) so as Older' says fortune will play a big part. The big factors are the F troop support and the localloyal togetherness of the players. Remember the bulk of the team with a large contingent from Penryn Athletic began their first game together losing 0-7 at Home to Tavistock. So its been a seasonal progress after that "pleased to meet you" on that opening day of 2017-18 season.

  10. He was running the line at yesterday’s Helston Women’s match - much as I’m not a fan of the way his (men’s) team plays, I came away from that with a huge amount of respect for his commitment to the club and to the game in general.

    Think I might have done actually Keith!? I know in the old West Cornwall Sunday league playing with my old mates at Probus I scored in every game for 3 seasons in a row. I’d imagine that we played 20/25 games a season including cups but I certainly haven’t done it in Saturday football I’m sure of that. Great achievement from Jordy at any level 👏🏼Thanks for the kind words Bill and Kev, if it wasn’t for you two I might have had another 20 or 30!! Great gents but tough opponents 👌👍⚽️

  12. PENRYN (1) 1 Conner Powell 4’ WADEBRIDGE (0) 0 ATT: 78 REF: Mr Kevin Knowles 👏🏼 Only watched from the start of the 2nd half as was watching my other lads 2pm kick off up the road. Saw injured Bridgers striker Lloydy on the way in for a quick chat and as the game turned out they could have done with him on the pitch come the end. Penryn boss Popey was left with 12 players at kick off so an even more remarkable result for the Ryn. Every player put in a shift from back to front with Wadebridge knocking on the door for almost all the 2nd half with the ever lively Kyle Flew looking a threat. The hosts even worked a few openings of their own but it was the visitors with the more clear cut chances thwarted by some stout defending in the main protecting those precious 3 points. You knew it wasn’t going to be the Bridgers day when a point blank volley was brilliantly saved by the feet of Penryn keeper Adam Robarthan in the 95th and last minute! Well reffed as always from Kev, no fuss, no drama, plenty of common sense, great to see him and the players chatting. Class act 👍👌⚽️ Good day for Penryn and one of those days for Wadebridge where they’ll probably play worse and win at some stage during the season.

  13. Redruth United 5 (2) Perranporth 1 (1) attendance about 15. Redruth put in a really good team performance at Clijah Croft to deserve the win and credit to Perranporth for not giving up . Ground looking good with the new railings around the pitch and the management must be really pleased with today’s performance. perranporth keeper made a brilliant save in the first half to prevent a shot destined for the top corner. nice to see some of our u18’s coming on and not looking out of place. Special mention to the referee Neal (pitty) Pitt on his first St. Pirans game. Did a good job.Also had the pleasure of speaking to his dad Dennis and reminiscing.

  14. Lanson 1 Liskeard 2 The Bkues,should have won tbe game by half time. They were so dominant, but were profligate in front of goal. The one they did get was a beauty, started by a great cross-field ball and a sublime Aplin finish. The second half still saw Liskeard on top but better defending from the Clarets saw fewer away chances created (and coughed up) About 10 mins from time a lovely free kick from just outside the box was lifted over the Lanson wall into the net. Up to then the Blues 'keeper had only one shot to save - a fierce rising shot from the Waltz. Abiut 2 minutes from tine an outstanding Waltz scissor kick gave Lanson some reward for a doughty second half performance. 4 of the 6 recent Launceston losses by a single goal in a difficult run of games. Liskeard confortable tonight, but the Clarets a battling outfit these days. Worth going to Pennygillam just to see the Waltz. Awesome goal tonight fella!

  15. I was never a fan of Farkins but when they had a player sin binned in our game he completely ran the show -!he knew what he was doing and was outstanding. Will be a tight game but I do think they are beatable, especially if attacked out wide( if down the middle Farkins and Milton will eat it up all day long) - which is Falmouth strength. Nice club and people there though - hope Falmouth and the F Troop enjoy it - you will need to tell them to put more bar staff on though lol

  16. Thanks Town Man 👍⚽️ Certainly wish I was 25 years younger and scoring goals in front of the fantastic F Troop fans these days! I’m sure the players know and appreciate how lucky they are to play in front of you guys every week as we all did 30 odd years ago in front of the great lads that supported us all over Devon and Cornwall and beyond! 🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆 Great to see some of them still in The Packet End these days with all that colour and noise! Never forget that statue in the middle of Holsworthy about 40 foot high with a couple of Town scarves on after we won the league up there in 90 or 92?!! Great times and looks like plenty more to come for the club 👍⚽️💛🖤🏆

  17. I hugely admire Falmouth Town. The fixture away to a good Buckland side in the next round might be quite revealing. Bucks brushed aside the Camels comfortably on Saturday I am told. Should be a great day. Great hosts, good home side but F-Troop in their numbers and Town in great form. What a tie it could be!

  18. Long trip home when you've had a hammering billy. Beautiful village Brockenhurst in the New Forest. I know it well and for two years I drove through Brockenhurst every day, travelling to Fawley Oil Refinery near Southampton where the company I worked for, were installing new plumbing and fire mains. Journey there and back home was very memorable, as were the hot fresh crusty cheese rolls on the way to work.

  23. Buckland 3-0 Camelford Great away trip to a lovely ground, really friendly club with great facilities (Rappo you would love live the box nets). Camels started sprightly and were awarded a stonewall penalty after about 10. Having said I had not seen Ed miss a penalty in 14 years before his miss at Lanson the keeper saved it - but had to be retaken and he missed again - so won’t say any more about penalties lol in fairness Buckland we’re the better team and deserved the win - good footballing team and when they attack they are excellent. Both teams had players sin binned and Camels had to play with 9 for a bit, but no complaints. Camels needed a full squad and play at the top of their game and had / did neither - but that was down to a good Buckland team. Good luck to Buckland in the Vase - Camels still on ‘tour’ and enjoying a good away trip.

  27. I think there were 2 blues behind him. Yes, he may have been shielding the ball, possible to delay he throw. Anywho, he was pushed in the back by a Blue, 4, I think. The thud when he hit the wall was frightening. If it had been his head, could have been very serious and we all know how big his head is lol. 3 goals, all well taken and perhaps Lanson will be another Callington who maybe just need a bit of luck to turn their season. First sighting of both teams for me this season and well worth the 80 miles. Pasties smelt lovely, settled for an excellent coffee. Oh, and the other half won the 50-50.

  29. As a Town fan, it is noticeable that we create lots of chances but don't take enough of them. I would fancy us more with a Rappo in the team! Having said that, we do have the three leading goal scorers in the league!I Got to take your chances in these tight games though.

  30. Buckland v Falmouth looks the pick of the draw for me. We played them with 4 starting players out / got a red card with 20 to go and missed a penalty, losing 3-0 (no complaints they were better) - so Falmouth will have a very good chance to progress. Two teams with really solid defences and great attacking flare.

    No one will come close to achieving what Rappo has achieved, the levels he played, the era he played in & the quality players he competed against. Unbelievable record & I can personally say, a nightmare to play against. Not many players would put you on your ass, score & then give you his hand & help you up on the way back, T***. 🤣😂🤣

  33. Certainly it was a smash and grab jobby but I would have to say our goal came from a slick passing movement, assisted by the best bit of advantage I think I've ever seen from a referee. Jack rappo crashed down from behind but the ref saw a chance to play the advantage and in the goal went, 99.9% of refs would have given an immediate foul for the tackle and the advantage and our goal would have been lost. Top decision, top referee...well done from me.

  34. Any more reports and results? The Helston result was a surprise given that Oldland Abbottonians play in the step below. Don't like this rule about penalties after 90 minutes. Absolutely no logic to it as the away team normally have travelled many miles and deserve the extra time to get a result, rather than the lottery of penalties.

  35. St.Austell 1 Launceston 1. 155 spectators endured a turgid affair between two sides struggling to score goals. Both goals came just before the half time whistle, can't remember anything of note happening in the second period but nevertheless ended in a point for both clubs which was fair as neither side deserved to win or loose.

  37. What a set-up (except for lack of a tea hut!)! Wish there'd been facilities like that when I was at school or teaching. Great view from the balcony alongside the pitch, the sea in the distance.. You don't expect much playing away to a team from three divisions above you but Carharrack were good value for only being 2 - 0 down at half-time (17th and 38th minutes). The second half was livened up by the arrival of a few young female students on the balcony, presumably from CSM who provided a bit of vocal accompaniment to their team's efforts. 3 an 4 nil down in the 57th and 63rd minutes, CSM put a pen wide on 66, made it 5 - 0 on 71 as 21 players stood silently for an expected offside flag that never came - even the lad who scored made no celebration, and the ref, who had an excellent game, was also waiting for the flag and had to have it confirmed by the Carharrack linesman that it wasn't offside; then Ben Rapsey scored a goal for the visitors in the 72nd minute, no less than they deserved for their endeavours this afternoon, before CSM wrapped it up on 83 for a sixth. Don't know where the 7th came from! Great chat with Rappo, watching his son, and his m-in-law (can't imagine going ANYwhere with my m-i-law when she was alive!), fun to hear the F-troop roaring from Bickland, bit chilly otherwise and kicking myself for making a flask of tea to take only to leave it on the draining board.....

  38. Chacewater 0 Probus 6 (Jamie Bilkey 2, Ben Daniel 2, Jack Truscott and an own goal) I would like to think that anyone watching today’s game will say that we deserved our win against higher league opponents. We knew it would be a difficult game against a team who are near the top of division one in the Trelawny league. We started well and straight from the kick off (after about 10 seconds) we had a chance for Jamie Bilkey, when a back pass was short and his shot was well saved by the home keeper. After 19 minutes Tom Orpe had a header wide from an Oscar Thomas-Donald cross. A minute later the home keeper then made another good save from Jack Truscott via a Jamie Bilkey pass. From the resulting corner Jack Truscott had a header tipped over. We did take the lead after 30 minutes when Jamie Bilkey scored a very good goal, when he passed the ball into the net to show the composure we had been missing in front of goal. We had another chance straight after the win the ball back from kick off but the home keeper made another excellent save from Jack Truscott’s shot. After 33 minutes Jack Truscott had an excellent header tipped over. In the 45th minute Chacewater were awarded a free kick after Tom Orpe slipped and felled an opposing player. That wasn’t the end of the first half action though because a Jamie Bilkey cross found Ethan Gatley but his volley was again well saved by the home keeper. 0-1 at half time and we were disappointed it wasn’t more and we hoped we weren’t made to pay for the chances we had missed. I came on at half time, so my memory of the second half isn’t great! Chacewater started the half better and we knew the next goal was important. They didn’t really created anything despite have more possession for the first 10 minutes.We scored 5 unanswered goals in the second half, but Chacewater did hit the post at 0-5. I do remember that Ben Daniel scored an excellent goal when his quick feet walked through the Chacewater defence and Jack Truscott got the final goal and it was what his performance deserved. Tom Orpe also assisted with some of the goals - like I say I can’t remember all the goals! Overall we felt we warranted the win but I’m sure Chacewater have, and will play better. Thank you to the referee Adam Batchelor,who had an excellent game and to Chacewater for their hospitality after the game. It was nice to see and speak to the league secretary, David James, at the game. We look forward to the next round draw.

  40. Probus were the better team on the day, obviously. We had plenty of chances to potentially change the flow of the game but failed to put the ball in your net. Thought the game was played in good spirits with a decent crowd as well. Ref was excellent throughout, thanks Adam. Nice to have a brief chat with David James also. Good luck with the rest of your season Probus. Russ (Chace GK)

  41. Junior Cup Result Perran 2nds 3-2 Falmouth DC Elliott Jolly (2) Ben Glanville (1) Assists:- Mark Mitchell (1), Leon Langy (1), Aaron Byworth (1) Man of the Match:- Sol Murley Perranporth knew this would be a tough cup game against a very strong Falmouth team from Div 2 and everybody had to be on their game. With both teams playing some good football in the 1st half Perranporth won a Freekick, Mark Mitch pinged a great ball in the box to find Elliott Jolly's head and he gracefully headed the home team in front on 9 minutes. A couple of good saves in the 1st half from Levi Webster kept Falmouth at bay as the away team we're looking for an equaliser then on the 44th minute Aaron Byworth played the ball down the wing for Ben Glanville to net from a tight angle to put the home team 2-0 at Halftime. The 2nd half was tough as Falmouth made a couple of substitutions and a formation change, This suited them immensely as they took control and started to dominate for a while, With a quick turn of events Leon Langmaid recieved the ball and crossed the ball along the ground for Elliott Jolly to slide in and bag his 2nd of the game 3-0 Perranporth. This didn't stop the visitors from attacking and they took the game to Perranporth and grabbed 2 goals back 3-2 Perran. With time ticking away Perranporth's defence held strong to claim a tough result and put us into the next round. A massive shout out to the whole team for there commitment, All the defence deserved to be Men of the Match but Sol Murley edged it with a solid confidence performance. Having subs on the bench was an essential part of yesterday's game as everyone was needed to play there part. All the best to Falmouth DC for the forthcoming season, Great bunch of lads and they unfortunately lost the drinking game in the bar afterwards, Great Banter and a great match for the neutral.

  42. Groundhopper, if you see your opposition are down to bare 11/12, it gives you a psychological edge knowing an injury/tiredness cannot be subbed off and a lack of options if you need to make changes. Would be common sense for me to name subs on a team sheet even if no intention of playing to limit this.

Rome wasn’t built in a day mate .. all about progression for us this year not about where we finish to be perfectly honest and already higher than everyone predicted start of the season .

Sitting 11th ain’t too bad for us we want more and will strive for more , now the games should even then self’s out ..

  48. My friend and I are both hoping to make a leap from youth to mens football being sixteen. We are both physically fit players based in the truro area but have some flexibility with travel, who can be useful to a club in need of players. I play right back or right wing and my friend can play anywhere from the midfield upwards. Please reply if you can much appreciated. Harry Owen
