  1. This is why we deliberately lost 5-1 to you this weekend...

    St Just fencing

    Not to be rude, but what do you think a fence is for? Unfortunately the pitch is treated as a public park, where our volunteers have to clean up after those who disrespect the property time and time again. Dog walkers who let their animals foul all over the pitch is one reason. Hardly want to be picking up after other people's dogs when you have an adults game on Saturday and then youth games on a Sunday? Let alone midweek training. You then have the adolescents who use the dugouts as a den to drink and sell drugs. They also feel the need to break in to the changing rooms on

  4. Very strange decision, and im glad to see im not the only one that feels this way. If you finish as group winners, surely you must earn home advantage for the Quarter Finals. In what world does it benifit you more to finish 2nd over finishing 1st??? Otherwise, what is the point in trying to win your group?? Im thinking about setting up penryn with no keeper on Saturday, 0-0-11 formation, and hope for a heavy defeat, therefore finishing in 2nd place 😂😂😂come on!!!!!!!!!!! I mean no disrespect at all towards any of the organisers of this tournament, its amazing to have competative

  5. St Ives 0 (0) - (0) 0 New inn Titans New inn Titans arrived at Saltings, with 12 players after 3 pulled out due to seeing a thing called rain blustering around in between, the wind. St Ives I believe needing a point to win the league, would of been confident of battering New inn, after seeing them warm up with Rolly fags and Dad bods exposed in the extremely tight kit, the likes of Arsenal wear for performance helping tactics. Leigh Isaacs was banned from doing the team talk, as just like Mourinho, he had lost the dressing room the previous week, so it was left down

Shaun Isaacs have his routine, team talk, like his children had just stamped play Doh in his carpets, so the boys felt like they had some making up to do. Falmouth started the fresher creating a couple of good chances! Leigh Isaacs in goal was the busier of the

  12. Hello. I would just like to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the Chacewater v St Erme clash in Trelawny 2 on Saturday. Proper football fare. My blog from the game is now online at thecupfootballblogger.wordpress com if you would be so kind as to give it a read. Cheers

  13. Thank you, friends, for your kind concern. Heart not so bad, since my stent was fitted. I am indeed Bonkers for world socialism and the Tinners. This is the natural inheritance of my Methodist upbringing in St Just (this atheist still sends money to the Chapel !) overlaid by a few years reading a bit. I don't think anybody has seen me drink more than three pints of beer since 1982 and there is no alcohol in my house. The great William Cobbett referred to tea as "slop-kettle" and I never touch the stuff, Keith, so it'll have to be decaffeinated coffee, I'm afraid, which is my only vice except s

    Interesting

    Spent today giving everything a good cut including around the ground in the hope that tomorrow we get a bucket full of rain to give everything a good kick. The pitch is so dry and looking tired. Not used any fertiliser yet as we need the rain. These conditions are normally more June/July type conditions. Daisys and Dandilions growing everywhere. They follow the areas we mark the pitch at the far end. God nos why. Must be something in the paint they like. Pitch needs spraying this summer to sort that out. Hope your all well and enjoying the dry weather. Well to a point. 😃

  17. Thanks Chris, we are a young side ( myself aside lol ) we had 3 of our under 16s playing today which is the whole idea for their progression from kids football to the adults. We had 13 out of the 16 today have progressed through the Fal United club. You boys were twice the size of us and could have quite easily kicked us off the park but you kept it as a football match which was awsome, a lot of credit and really nice bunch of lads you have there, all the best for the future.

  18. As a club, once again I’d like to apologise for what was said from someone who I can confirm has nothing to do with St Ives Town football club other than having a friend playing for us. As soon as the comment was made, I said to him it was out of order and rightly so the referee asked him to leave the ground. Aside from this, I thought the game was played in great spirits, a feisty affair with both teams battling to win and on the day St Ives took 2 of their chances and defended very well. Not sure of his name but the Tregony Manager has a great bunch of lads there and we wish them lu

  19. As an Ashes fan- I was there during the early 90's and away days at places like Clandown and Welton Rovers. Back in the days of no sat nav, having to go via the old Non League Directory (remember that!), I couldn't find Welton Rovers ground for love nor toffee. had to drive into Bath (!) look in WH Smiths for ground directions as nobody was picking up the phone at West Clews. Happy memories! Mind you, back then my first car was a old Austin Mini and driving on the M5 was fun. I'm looking forward to the new season- and hopefully my diesel car will help soften the blow occasionally. There'l

  20. I'm sure that's not the reason Older; Penzance & St Just Clubs get on well and I'm certain, would wish them all the success they deserve after a 2nd excellent season. There's plenty of room for rivalry in sport but none for hatred!

  21. So basically = Bude, Launceston, Polperro, Penryn already into Quarter finals one from St.Day or Wendron (playing midweek) one from St.Mawgan or St.Austell (playing midweek) two from Hayle, Mullion, Illogan, A strong last 8 whoever 👍⚽️🏆

  23. Agree with you up to a point Keith. In Britain, 3pm on Saturday has been a traditional football for historical reasons. Back in the days when a five and a half day working week was the norm in heavy industry and manufacturing, men used to work up until midday on a Saturday, knock off, get washed up, stop off a pint (or two) and then be at the ground for 3pm (couldn't kick off any later through lack of the floodlights that would be needed in mid winter). Similarly, the traditional starting point for the British season is always scheduled around the end of the traditional two week shutdown of th

  24. Some of those Magpies have done more than enough mating already without molesting the young people of St Just, Keith ! I understand perfectly, CTB ! Retail ! No wonder the service in Penzance's emporia is so often a mumbling shambles ! Furthermore, no responsible parent would leave vulnerable children with you lot every Saturday, hearing that terrible language ! Taking their kids away on holiday ? More like obtaining a Place of Safety Order !

  26. As you know Dave our ground is quite big, so the total cost was just shy of £30,000. I did all of the plans, submitting of planning permission and statements myself, so that would be an additional cost too. Luckily I was successful in obtaining a grant to help cover a lot of the costs, but even with that, it wasn't a cheap job!

  28. If this is correct then that’s ridiculous. Surely if you top your group you are handed a home draw in the quarter final? Like pretty much every other single cup competition in the world? Strange decision. I wonder if any teams will tactically play to finish 2nd!

  38. Not before time Paul, not a lot of rain here though, going to need a lot more than this buddy. Rain at night, long sunny days for photosynthesis and a bit of warmth for the soil bacteria and the grass will fly...wishful thinking...lol. Heres how dry it's been, a line on the training ground!!!

  39. Dandelions...tell me about it, thousands of the sods, going to have a good go at them later in the week. Very few daisies though. And rain, yes please, no bulk in the grass at all, I won't be putting any fertiliser down yet, will need more than one day's rain before I do that. I'll probably leave it as late as possible now so as to get maximum benefit out of it, might even leave it to September/October, any rain now will make the grass grow perfectly well for me.

  40. No need to apologise you always get one. It was plain to see he was nothing to do with your football club. I thought the ref handled it well in straight away going over and asking him to leave. I honestly thought it was swampy! He looked like he needed a good wash. Hopefully someone has a quiet word or even gives a clip round the ear! st ives played the better footie and could have scored more. We had a couple out but it’s rare that everyone is available to play. I thought we tried to compete and tried to play at times. We need a few more players in a few more brains as well!

  41. I thought it was an excellent game by two committed sides who both tried to play football on an ‘undulating’ pitch. The comment by the local at the end was unfortunate, but hopefully the village will have him back for the idiot comment but shouldn’t detract from the excellent attitude from both sets of players who were all fully committed but gracious enough to congratulate each other at the end - pleasure to be involved with and a good advertisement for local football and credit to division 3 who apart from 1 side have all come back to play out the season and enjoy their football👍👏

  42. Surely this is what football is all about, if teams come up to the peninsula league and build on it what’s to stop them from progressing up the leagues. This should of happened years ago then perhaps clubs down the leagues will have more ambition off the pitch to move up
