On behalf of Redruth United I would like to say a big thank you to everyone for your words of comfort and support. if anything good can come from this terrible situation it is to highlight the problems that grassroots clubs have to handle. please please please people look after your clubs, these people have done it once they can and will do it again.

  2. An enjoyable but sometimes frustrating day at the cornish Wembley. Both sides had players missing including towns front men of Jack Bowyer and Alex Wharton. Willand were on top in the opening stages with their slick passing and closing down of any town player to win the ball back .Although any goal threat was being dealt with by the Town defence of Kirk Davies , James Ward ,Toby Clarke ,and Ollie moody . Town took the lead against the run of play on 34 mins with Luke Brabyn finally beating the offside trap racing to the edge of the box and driving the ball past the keeper at his near post . F troop celebrations were short lived however as 4 mins later willand equalised from the impressive Jack Rice ,shooting through a crowd of players and past the unsighted Ryan Barnes . H/T 1-1 . The 2nd half was only 2 mins old when Willand took the lead again through Jack Rice . Town then made some tactical changes with Ryan Chinn and Jack Webber coming on in midfield and Tom Annear coming on as a left wing back . Town were getting more possession and making more runs down the wings culminating in an excellent Tom Annear cross on 64mins eluding the keeper for Dave Broglino to head just inside the far post at the packet end sending the F troop into a frenzy . The atmosphere was now like last seasons FA vase game against Longlevens all over again .Willand kept attacking looking for a winner but towns defence held firm .On 87 mins a run and shot by ( I think ) new signing Harry Clarke was dropped by the Willand keeper only to fall to another New Signing Andreas Calleja - Stayne to tap into an empty net and win the game and sparking F Troop into Full voice . For all their possession and talent Willand will feel hard done by .But as we see in the Premier league ,it's not necessarily the team with the most possession that wins the game ,you have to put the ball in the net .

  4. Excellent 3-2 win for TOWN against a very good side from the Southern League. Draw might have been a fairer result but no complaints!! Understand both sides had a few out. Let's hope Town can replicate this form when the real stuff starts. PS. F-Troop were great today. They had plenty to sing about and they didn't disappoint. It's an entertaining couple of hours when you attend Bickland these days.

    Stepping down as Manager

    Would like to wish Chacewater the very best for the coming season ahead. Fingers crossed all Teams can finish a Season with Trophies and Promotions going to the Winners. I was blessed as my first Management role to join Chacewater. Great players amazing Team Spirt and a winning attitude. My Partner is pregnant with our first Child together, baby due in January. Unfortunately we lost our som last year at 14 weeks old which really took a big effect on all of us as a Family. The news my partner is pregnant is amazing but as you can expect we are very anxious and nervous. For this reason I don’t feel I could give the boys or Club 100 percent of my time or commitment. I always said if any thing stopped me from giving my all with family commitments I would step down as would be unfair to the Players, myself and Family. I really enjoyed my short spell as Manager and once able too and it’s cleared with the Mrs lol I’ll look to take up Management once again. Good luck to the Green Army ⚽️⚽️❤️❤️

  8. "If they are correct" are the key words. I would say that the only two people who know what they really get are the manager and the player. Lots of stuff on here is a combination of rumour, exaggeration and jealousy. Given the terrible state of some of the grounds, pitches and facilities around the scene, I would hope these stories aren't true.

  9. Just an update. As you may have seen tonight the national news outlets are now getting on board with our story.there is not much damage to the pitches thankfully but the changing runs have been more or less wrecked. The leader tank upstairs was broken letting water flood through the ceilings and ruining all the electrics. There had been lots of decorating done to the changing rooms but as seen in the video have been trashed. At present we are in the hands of the council to evaluate the work needed to be done. There will be a work party on Tuesday evening to try and clean as much as we can. The response we have had from the community has been nothing short of amazing. Loads are coming along people offering to make food companies wanting to sponsor us. After the last two years we have had due to COVID it really is truely humbling for us as a club. Thank you will never be enough. On a positive note our U12’s took part in a tournament today. Great to see them flying the flag for our club

    Absolutely agree Richard I have just seen the video. Although not affliated with the club I'm a Redruth man and spent my time playing for a few different clubs at Clijah. If any help is needed with what is bound to be a big clean up I will happily come and help out.

  14. We are a little bit different; 80% of our players have come through our Flexi League system. Our reserves tomorrow for example, 11 of the 15 haven't played Saturday football in a few seasons (or ever). I feel like we've done it the right way. We don't charge subs or anything - we pay for it all through our sponsors. Yet that's not even enough for some. Don't get me wrong, they'll turn up, play and do well for us. But a club is so much more than just playing a 90 minute match

  16. I have a feeling there will be a few more until things can settle down. As someone else said with accommodation being harder for younger people and changing jobs because of the pandemic clubs will struggle unless they have a youth system to fall back on. Also there is a big lack of volunteers behind the scenes to do the jobs nobody else wants to do.

  18. Never mind the 3 Lions, the Ashes had 11 on the pitch at all times as everyone, substitutes included, put in a heroic shift. Callum O'Brien was an absolute beast at the back, but young Reece Thompson led the line, held the ball up well and kept Boro defenders busy superbly. As with the Brixham PSF I saw, the Ashes boys looked fit, committed and organised. I would also like the say well done to how well the evening was organised by the club. it takes hard work by volunteers to provide a good environment to enjoy. I am excited by the new season and, having watched Buckland regularly in the WL previously, I have a fair handle of its strength. Top 4-6 for Ashes a real possibility. Lastly, absolute respect for the Boro following - top quality in terms of both friendliness and numbers. They helped create a memorable evening of football!

  19. Cracking night at Kimberley with the final score 1-2 to the Championship side. Att had to be heading towards 1000. Credit all the players, they matched Middlesbrough and Callum O'brien and Ryan Rickard outstanding. Good to see the new guys Tom Cleveland, Jarod Woods doing excellent work and the penalty well taken by Dave Barker. PSF don't show a lot normally- but I'm liking the spirit by the Ashes team heading into Step 5. All credit to Neil Warnock and Middlesbrough fans- they knew they'd been in a proper match last night!

    Farcical!

    I’d imagine nothing looking at full time I see they finished 2nd ( in Covid times)in division 3 so I’d expect promotion to division 2 scratching my head why they or any other club in that scenario to ask/appeal/expect to be promoted 3 leagues . That make sense?

    Farcical!

    You have no idea what it takes to issue a complete fixture list until ALL the leagues above have released their fixtures . Its not only the Combo league that also have teams in Trelawny , add in ST Pirans , Swpl and possibly Western leagues soon , they all get first pick on pitches ! Your theory would lead to some clubs not playing for weeks on end as no pitches would be available ! Can you tell me in July what pitches are free in April ? Keep spouting your rubbish and leave the rest to people who know what they are doing !!!

  26. STICKER 0-0 PENRYN Really good game of football!! One of those games where the scoreline doesn’t do it justice! Think Penryn hit the bar and post 4 times and missed a penalty and Sticker hit the woodwork twice. Both keepers made some good saves as well. Plenty for Popey and Flacky to be positive about I would have thought! Bumped into Avers after the game and he showed me the new dressing rooms, absolutely fantastic! Said the away ones are nearly as good as well!! Sticker deserve so much credit for all their work over the years, what a great venue to play your football these days, pitch was immaculate as well! Congrats to all the gents at the club, nice afternoon watching some good players 👍👏🏼⚽️

  27. Harry Clarke signed for Falmouth Town in time for the friendly against St Agnes on Wednesday. Played in the Southern League last season. Another great addition to the Town squad. Big challenge for Westy to keep everyone happy though as it is now a big squad with lots of quality.

  29. Camelford 1 v 1 Cribbs Watched this one last night on a very pleasant cooler evening, with a fairly strong wind blowing the length of the pitch. As with every PSF Camels were some players light and Cribbs brought a squad of about 18 and are a well coached and disciplined team. Luffs their manager has brought in some higher league players for them to have a push in the Hellenic League next season and their style of football is very simple - they stay very organised and compact when defending and then break with numbers when they win the ball back. First half was fairly even, Camels having more possession and shots but Cribbs had ‘better’ possession and looked more dangerous. Cribbs scored on about 40 minutes from a well worked goal and excellent solo finish by Muzza, who to be fair missed a couple as well. Camels seemed to lack the flair and speed of movement they usually play. Second half saw Camels come more into the game as an attacking force. Game was faster, Cribbs relied more on their counter attack style, but to less effect. Camels scored on 75 minutes with an excellent Tom C free kick (one of many they won around the edge of the box), game ended 1-1 which was a fair result. Good game and good luck to Cribbs for next season

  30. . Its the teams withdrawing that really messes up the pyramid system, the act of folding a team seems to be taken much more lightly these days and it seems to happen more often - but that's probably just me looking back on the past with my rose tinted specs on ! - being too fond of the past is partly why i'm happily retired now.

  35. Good report Phil, not much to add to that, agreed 👍⚽️ Rower has got Wadebridge well drilled, fit and lively. Nice to see him and Wittser as always tonight. Foxhole will do well in their league, got some quality players! Great to see Whetts back playing the 1st half after his broken leg and Lee Rickard playing the 2nd half up front where I always enjoy watching him play forcing a great save out the keeper 3 minutes from time 👏🏼 Darin still looking well, what a servant he’s been for the Foxes over the years!

  36. Just home from Wadebridge 4 Foxhole 0. Wadebridge surprised a few teams last season and gave Saltash a hell of game last October. On tonight's showing make no mistake they'll be up there again. Foxhole clearly were not as fit or have the turn of speed but I like the terrier approach of Wadebridge, run, defend and hassle. It worked well for them tonight. The two forwards were excellent although the number 9 had a bit of a mare with some open goal misses. Foxhole played their part and played some good stuff especially towards the end of the match and I think they'll hold their own in their league on this showing. I'll finally say and stick my neck out- but Wadebridge could well be top 6 on their play alone and they were much better than the Liskeard side I saw last night.

  37. So far this season I have attended and filmed 2 Helston Athletic training sessions, a week-end tour of Exeter and games against Sidmouth Town and Sticker. I am really looking forward to the new season in the Toolstation Western Premier League and I sincerely hope that it will not be curtailed, as they were in the last two. Steve Massey has acquired a number of new players and has let go of some of the older ones. So there is a good blend of youth and experience. Stand out players to date for me are the classy midfielder Archie Reay, signed from Willand Rovers and Josh Storey, back from a serious knee injury and operation. I look forward to offering a variety of videos this season. Home games will follow a similar format to past ones, with Dave Deacon and Tom Howe at the helm on Saturdays and Midweek respectively. We hope to spice it up with some additional help from guests. I also intend to capture many of the away fixtures and cut the action to music. Once the midweek games are over in September, Steve Massey and I will take to the road and do some more "Awayday" videos. You'll be able to read about this venture that we piloted in the late spring in the Sunday Independent and Voice papers sometime very soon. I could't write a post without including a link to a video or two: EXETER AND SIDMOUTH TOURhttps://youtu.be/GY5YFYNhnWc TRAINING ON PERRANPORTH BEACH https://youtu.be/hk81fFXgfME TRAINING AT BOSCOWAN PARK< TRURO https://youtu.be/TCGWFY102Dc

  41. Good summing up Phil, agree with all that 👍 Would say the crowd was more like 1500 though? Good 200 odd Boro fans there tonight! Ashes looked fit and well organised and are in for a good season in the Western League I reckon. Kimberley stadium looking great these days as well. Big thanks to Dave and Karl for looking after me and the Mrs tonight, great evening thanks gents. Good luck to Dane and the lads for the season, think it could be a good one 👍⚽️

  42. No because you will have imput from different leagues, clubs will improve facilities and youngsters will be keen to get involved. The standard of youth football is forever improving and will create more competition in lower leagues. Hopefully creating more ambitious clubs. Wendron being the perfect example yes it takes time but somebody has to be brave enough to make the first move.

  43. Best of luck to the Cornish clubs taking the step up. Good to see some ambition if only some of the clubs in years gone by had a go there would be more Cornish/Devon clubs in the league. Reading some of the negative comments just shows why Cornish clubs don’t advance. If some players would rather play in Step 6 rather than try to better themselves playing in a higher league then more fool them for a few extra quid. As the Mousehole statement said the travel can be made into a positive if done the right way and an away game to a Bristol team midweek isn’t great but it works both ways. Helston and Mousehole away for Bristol team midweek is also possible.

  44. At least they will have tried. As has been said before the more that try the easier it will get. This will only get better for the young players coming through, as they will get to play a better standard of football and hopefully a Cornish club can progress even further. Just look at Parkway some of our clubs were competing with them not that long ago.
