    PRESS RELEASE / STATEMENT PLAYERS & MANAGEMENT TO MAKE £6,000 DONATION. In light of the Corona Virus pandemic, The Football Association (FA) this week announced that the 2019 / 2020 football season is terminated with all results considered ‘null and void’ for all clubs competing in The National League System, Steps 3 to 7. Other Cornish leagues have since followed suit. Despite a record breaking run of twenty-four consecutive league wins and riding high on top of The South West Peninsula League Premier West Division, the Players and Management of Helston Athletic Football Club have put aside their disappointment of missing out on promotion, with an amazing gesture of goodwill in donating £6,000 to two Helston based charities. Throughout a playing season, it is common practice for teams to collect fines from players who breach localised club rules, such as attending with unclean boots, arriving late, allowing a mobile phone to ring in the changing room, to name but a few. Such funds are usually set aside for end of season celebrations. However, with the season now ended and the corona virus situation requiring an unprecedented need for financial support, Club Captain, Mark Goldsworthy and First Team Manager Steve Massey were quick to propose all team monies collected, along with some additional donations from members, be split between Helston Cottage Hospital and The Towns Mustard Seed Food Bank, in support of essential supplies. Mr Massey advised Helston Mayor, John Martin, of the donations, who in turn thanked the players and club saying, “with funds starting to run low, such donations are magnificent, much needed and will be gratefully received - thank you” Helston Athletic Football Club Chairman Paul Hendy added “This extremely kind gesture is not from the club, but from its players and management. I feel immensely proud of their decision to support two local based charities, who I know will welcome ever pound they can collect at this difficult and challenging time. The transfer of the donated funds to both charities is currently being processed.

    Unnecessary post. No doubt he will achieve it next year as this year will be consigned to history. Unlike £odmin who probably £pent as much in their time at the £op but never had the ambition to £est themse£ves. That will always bring a smile to a lot of football followers.

    So that's it. The FA has decided quite rightly that season 2019-2020 not only is over but will be expunged. In simple terms it never happened. But it did. It was the season I reignited my passion for Saltash United. I got to go to some brilliant new grounds like Wendron, St Dennis. I nearly froze to the bone at Dobwalls in January. I saw my team literally destroy Bodmin 6-0 at home. And beat Helston in the league cup having been down at half time. The lads were on the cusp of getting into 3 cup semis, 3rd in league with 6 games in hand on 2nd and promotion. So 2019- 2020 season did happen. But now, all that matters is that we all stay safe and we'll meet in July, laugh, enjoy a simple pint or a cup of tea. And that's far more important than just an 'expunged'.

    A duck walks into a bar and jumps up onto a stool. The bartender walks over and the duck says 'Toasted sandwich and a pint of beer thanks '. The bartender stares at him for a while and says 'You're a duck '. The duck replies 'Yeah, nothing wrong with your eyesight '. The bartender says 'But you can talk, you're a talking duck!' 'Nothing wrong with your ears either ' replies the duck, 'You see that new housing development across the road?, I'll be working over there for a few weeks. Every day, I will be coming over here for a toasted sandwich and a beer for lunch. Do you have a problem with that? If so I'll go elsewhere.' The bartender replied 'no no all good.' And got the duck his toasted sandwich and beer. The next day at lunch time, the duck waddles in, sits at the bar and orders his toasted sandwich and beer. The bartender is shaking his head in disbelief. Every day for the next week the duck comes over for his lunch and the bartender still can't believe it. One day the circus comes to town and the ringmaster comes into the pub , the bartender sees him and tells him about the talking duck that comes in every day for lunch. The ringmaster is keen to have him in his circus. At lunch time the duck waddles in and orders his toasted sandwich and beer. The bartender tells the duck how the circus is in town and the ringmaster said he has a job for him. 'Circus?' The duck asks, They're those things that travel all around the place aren't they?' 'Yes, thats right' the bartender replies. 'And these circuses, they use large tents, don't they?' The duck asks. 'Correct ' says the bartender. 'These tents are made of canvas aren't they? The duck says, looking puzzled. 'That's right' says the bartender. 'Then what the **** would they want with a plasterer?

    I would think most players have written this season off and will enjoy the break. Ask them to play again in a month or two's time the majority won't even bother to turn up. Clubs won't be able to raise teams...I believe it's all over bar the shouting now!

    I was walking past a building site recently and saw a couple of guys at the top of some very high scaffolding. All of a sudden the youngest of the guys ran along the boards and jumped off and hurt himself badly on the concrete below. When his mate came down I asked him what happened. 'I don't know' he said, 'we were just talking about the 2nd World War and how my grandad flew in wellingtons'.

    I went out for my daily exercise walk earlier today, just down the road from my place a big hole has opened up in the road. So I rang Cornwall Council to report it, they said they would send some around to look into it. After that I rang my hairdresser to see if I could go in for a trim, but they said that they're not cutting hair any longer What a morning !

    Been out and got my morning exercise, giving VP a good brush and cut. Nice bit of movement in the grass and looking a fantastic colour. Had the 9ft brush made by a local fabricator and each season buy a new set of brush heads (£15) from warriors and screw them on. Had it made at 9ft (equivalent to 3 yards) as i mostly strip our pitch at 6 yard or 3 yard stripes. Brushing is good for taking off the morning dew, therefore getting less infections, good for stripping a pitch and getting air around the roots, takes about 30-40 minutes to do a pitch in both directions. VP is being vertidrained tomorrow, I will get some pictures/videos and upload on here and our social media for everyone to see what older means about 90 degree entry.

    Realism at last re 2019/20?

    New season. Play the cups left over from 2019/20 as pre-season tournaments, but begin the new 2020/21 league season as soon as possible. As I said before, just don't see how the pro game can resume, or season completed, while international travel restrictions are in place (according to some medical professionals and academics,it could be a year to 18 months that these exist to varying degrees).

    Positivity will always come to the top...always, and the cynics are always there as well...always. Human nature. Nobody has come on here bragging, merely stating what they have done for their community...well done. Others choose not too, but the ones they have helped - and are still helping are appreciative of the help. Maybe they don't want people to know the assistance they are receiving. Everybody has a choice to tell the world...or not.

    Quite simply because the FA have been very careful with their wording in stating 'all results are expunged'. No where have I seen 'the season doesn't count' as I would envisage the FA will use the season's performance of teams for 20/21 FA Competitions e.g. FA Cup. Given the careful wording I would also say all suspensions stand with no opening for clubs thinking they can be reimbursed for 19/20 fines. On a personal note to those leagues / clubs considering legal action against the FA. Wake up, look at what's going on around you. Now over 1,000 deaths in The UK from COVID-19. Is football really that important in the scheme of things!!

    Mine has got to be my 1st ever football match in 1962 i watched my dad took me to see Plymouth Argeyle Reserves play Spurs reserves nothing special there but my dads hero was playing back in this country Jimmy Greaves 1st game on British Soil after reurning to this country from Italy ,from that day i was hooked being a season ticket holder at Plymouthfor 40 years going home and away matches and going up in midweek to watch the Combination matches and 1 of those sticks in my mind Plymouth where losing 5-0 to Crystal Palace Clive Allen had scored 4 but non of those goals counted because the match was abandoned when heavy fog came in .My fav match was when i met my hero George Best when Fulham played at Home Park it was great watching my hero and getting his autograph .I do miss going Plyouth to watch them but many years ago a steward took my camera and ripped the film out and that was it i havnt been to Home Park since but i still have my memories .Now i got my local football to watch and i love it and met some lovely people

    I've seen alot of people saying finish the season next season and shorten the 20/21 season, in theory it's a good idea, but there are alot of issues the main one being players, I know as a manger that next season I will lose 3-4 players if I'm lucky to work commitments, uni, and moving away from the area. These players were available for the duration of the current season and would have made a big difference to my squad. We roll this season into next season and I'm already down 3-4 players at best, to finish of a season that they are no longer available for. As a manager you always anticipate losing players at the END of a season for the same reasons and have time to recruit and replace, but losing players because the season has been cancelled the. Restarting at a time when I no longer have them available, just gripes at me a bit, especially when the club is not blessed with a huge budget to easily replace players. It's a complicated issue with an outcome that will not please everyone.

    Great read Keith, The head of games at my school (Liskeard Comprehensive) was no fan of football, as rugby and athletics were his passions. Being a very tall child, and not necessarily quick across rthe ground and not a great ball handler, I was stuck in the scrum immediately as either a flanker or number 8. This miserable experience embedded my dislike of rugby union (which I still maintain to this day), and being the natural born contrarite that I am (this applies to all areas of my life, specifically music, politics,film and underdogs in general), decided that I would develop a deep love of football to counter act this. The more obscure the football the better, hence my love of the non league game.

    I think the season should be played out and finished. Any club with nothing to play for shouldnt get a vote. To easy for most clubs to just give up because theyve no chance of winning anything and havnt for months. The season should be finished when ever possible and then start the new season. If that means loosing the odd cup competition so be it.
