  2. I have washed my hands with it Silly Billy. I'm done from all this from now. Hearing today St. Blazey are keeping their duo in charge, after the committee have bottled out of dismissing them. Frightened. They dismissed Danny Bance a few season back after a poor string of results, yet this leadership take a group of players on a night out, a piss up, a social, breaking rules set out by the Government & Police whilst people are dying alone without families by their side. The Committee are weak of this IF this is correct, & deserve Everything that will come there wa

    Trelawny club folded!

    Sorry but why name and shame? Why does a player feel he has the god given right to be pursued by a club? This is the trouble today clubs have people working tirelessly behind the scenes to provide kit, pitches, a decent facility to play at and trying to give something back to a local community and are then looked on unfavourably because They didn’t pander to someone’s ego!....what a crock of s***! Loads of clubs advertise training and welcome with open arms new players! If you want to play get off your arse and attend one! If you don’t like it attend another one at a different club until you f

    Great post Mike, a team of talented individuals is great, but moulding a proper team of players that become great mates on and off the pitch and who can play a bit as well, and stay loyal to the club they love playing for, despite better offers season after season will usually be successful in the end. I was lucky enough to be a part of such a team at Falmouth in the late eighties and early nineties, all of us even hated missing training on a Tuesday night, sitting around a big table together after a hard session sometimes for a couple of hours chatting and having a laugh usually about our end

    GAME OFF WEDNESDAY!

    I know mate its shocking, had a a few clubs while I found my feet after moving down here. Managed Godolphin to a fifth place finish and senior and league cup final, then played for and coached Godolphin reserves for 2 season wining a cup, league and another promotion. Came back and helped with bits and pieces after starting working down in Dorset during the week, so been at the G now for about 5 years now. Took the managers job again as no know else come forward to do it, but has proved to much as I still work in Dorset. But yeah I get what your saying I'll try harder neat time 👍

  8. Why has OUR forum, set up to talk about Cornish football, the topic we obviously all want to discuss, been turned into an opportunity to namelessly have a go at others who are struggling or falling on difficult times? With our last season being Null and Void and us all missing the sport we love, many volunteers have worked tirelessly to get this season started and all that some want to do is jump on a bandwagon, whether its Callingtons struggles, Helstons hopes or some buffoon having a pop at the Cornish Pele!! (Rappo). Let’s give it a rest and start using the forum properly, or at least

    Really sorry for your loss Steve, no words can be of consolation at this time. Give Smokie some extra cuddles this week mate. As the lads have said, if you need anything or anyone just give us a shout on here Steve, I’ll drive over to Newquay and get you a coffee or a shandy and talk football for an hour or two and catch up with my mate Smokie. Look after yourself and don’t be afraid to give us a shout like the gents have said, it’ll be no trouble for us mate x

  12. Having read this thread, all I can say is - surely if you can't think of something good to say about a team, then say nothing. If a team has been completely out played then say it and leave it at that. As for rubbishing a keeper or any other player - let's face it, we all know (or knew in my case) when we've had a bad game, you don't need to be told for goodness sake, especially on a public forum. Leeds and a few others - take note.

  13. After 8 successive away games its been a hard start to The season for a VERY young Penzance Side. The 4-5 win away at Sticker on Saturday probably didn’t register much with most Cornish football fans, but it was just reward for a positive creative start to their season. Penzance were very unlucky against Bodmin, unfortunate against Liskeard, should have beaten Porthleven and have been competive in all their games. A good first 25 minutes but lack of quality in front of goal for Penzance was followed by a dismal end to the first half where Penzance went to sleep and gave the ball away f

    The Liskeard strategy Is following in the same footsteps as Millbrook, where a group of players have stuck together-Falmouth are now in their 4th.season of local players and the united enthusiasm on and off the park is as strong as ever. The St.Austell reserve team of last season is now coming to fruition in the SWPL and looking around Wadebridge and Camelford have persevered to grow in status.--probably other clubs as well as it seems the new way forward is to bond and improve facilities

Constantine reserves 3 - 6 Storm FC Finally after 40+ games losing the streak is broken, after going 2 nil down I couldn't be prouder of the boys today showed real fight and deserved everything they got. Conner Clark x 3 Ethan Smith x 1 James Porter x Penalty Michal Wojtas x 1 Goonhavern at home next week, should be a good game

  18. Far too much goal post shifting and rationalisation of , given the climate, truly reprehensible behaviour. What's even worse is the staunch defence of them, as if they were entirely unable to avoid getting into that situation in the first instance. The sad fact of the matter is that they felt the rules didn't apply to them, that they were above those permutations that have confined so many to house imprisonment this past year, and the reaction to this very day, is still of that nature that they've been hard done by or victimised; do me a favour.

In line with Government guidelines, and as a precautionary measure, Steve has, and continues too, self isolate. All at Helston Athletic Football Club send Steve their best wishes for a speedy recovery.

    Scored 490 goals in the old South Western League which I played mainly in between the age of 17 and 36 which as anybody who knows Cornish football is a bit better than local Sunday League standard! Had spells at Bristol City as a schoolboy, Exeter City as a teenager and Halifax Town on trial. A combination of injuries and probably not good enough was why I played most of my football in Cornwall and Devon. People around here know what I’ve done and not done in football so don’t feel the need to explain my ambition and I presume you mean desire to “Swilly Bingrove” but thanks for the interest i

    Saltash v Parkway

    Think it’s all a bit OTT! When 2 teams know each other so well these results happen! All the pressure on Parkway on the night added to that. Ryan is a quality striker who will get you 30/40 goals once he settles no danger, Matt a proven and well respected sought after coach, Hobbsy knows local football and players as well as anyone and will get his teams motivated, and I still fancy Parkway to win the league over a season and progress. Yeah shame to go out the cup early doors but ain’t a disaster apart from some half decent prize money, Parkway will be fine. Congrats to Dane and Saltash, what

  22. 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

  23. This is no doubt due to the rain in the last few seasons bringing the fines/silt to the surface. The net result being no air spaces in the top of the soil profile, without them grassland will retain water in the top structure of a pitch...soft slow draining will be the result. Solution, we will have to hollow core the pitch and use a silicate sand to put air spaces back into the top of the profile. Hollow coring and sanding is the only solution to this problem, vertidraining will not resolve this as the action of the vertidrain although relieving compaction does produce compacted ho

  25. Very interesting interview with Steve Massey on last Friday's podcast (even if it did turn into lengthy monologues from him at times). Couple of points I took were that he could barely bring himself to mention Mark Goldsworthy's name (as opposed to Neil Slateford), and was quite dismissive of him as a player ("contributes little to our play outside of scoring goals") and, even though he continually evaded the question, it sounded like the departure of Glyn Hooper from his coaching job wasn't harmonious. Well done to Dave Deacon though for pressing him on answers and dragging him back on t

    RESULTS - Sat 10 October 2020

    Seemed? If you were there you would understand the effort that went in to keep groups to no more than 6 and have table service and a one way system while everyone in masks apart from whem sitting down etc etc etc. Some groups had to sit outside yesterday so that the clubhouse wasnt over full. Someone sees a picture and theres always someone wanting to jump on it to get a medal. No wonder people dont want to do anything these days. There's always someone ready to criticise at the slightest thing.

I have to give full respect to the troop for the respectful nature they treated me and my kids. If the language got fruity, a few of the troop would apologise and pass the message along that the kids were there and to calm it... in fairness my 2 have probably heard worse at home 😂😂 and we weren't bothered, none the less much respect for that. When the guy with the drum started going he gave me fair warning for the kids so they could put their finge

  31. On Tuesday 22nd Sept, praze trained together. On the Thursday 2 players reported potential covid symptoms. On Friday night 2 more reported heavy colds. The right option was not to play. The 2 players with symptoms have both been tested and they came back as negative. Great news. Following advice those with heavy colds were not required to be tested. Government guidelines state we should isolate for 10 days. We did not train this week so that ends today. We have spoken to the FA and all good to play tomorrow. So a false alarm. But in my view, the correct decision. It co

  34. Covid is hardly a lame excuse. 82 million cases worldwide with 2 million deaths and the numpties still try to play it down. Ourselves we have reduced the capacity in the club by 80% so there is a big economic affect that some clubs cannot sustain. Football is not free to stage at any level therefore some income is necessary.

  35. I've read some incredibly mis informed nonsense on this forum over the years but this takes the award for the most ridiculous post ever. Covid nothing more than a cold?? Give your head a wobble lad. People don't have to go out and get smashed out of their head to let off steam. In fact doing that is probably far worse for their mental health. Stop making excuses for astoundingly bad behaviour.

  36. Theyve never been seen before. They were removed from the clubhouse during the second half i believe. Certainly not the norm. Lock down does strange things to people. That is not and will not be tolerated at St Blazey.

  37. Johnson has not had the backing of the population who seemingly appear to know better than the scientist, and choose to ignore the advice offered by them on how best to deal with the pandemic. One of the reasons that Cornwall has a reasonable score on the virus table, is because the population is widespread and therefore contact between people is less likely. That fact alone make a profound statement about the benefits of isolation if we adhere to them. Regardless of who is in government at present, if you don't follow the advice of some eminent epidemiologist, the chance of the pandemic s

And to hear they were buzzing when they got home is marvelous. That was my brother Donald on the drum, he buggered off to the far end for the 2nd half and gave us all a break ha ha ha . A number of us decided to stay under the roof for the 2nd half with rain expected. Remember when Dobwalls scored their 3rd goal, their players really ripped into us, loved it . But when the final whistle blew and victory was theirs

I feel at the present time I am unable to give 100% to the Senior level and that would not be fair on players or clubs. I have had a couple of great decades officiating on Senior football and have thoroughly enjoyed every minute, I have met many many different people across all the leagues, and have been treated with the utmost respect where ever I have officiated. I would like to say thank you to all the clubs I have had the pleasure to visit and will mis

    Start of new season

    That's what teachers are contracted and paid for! The amount of over time and work that teachers do unpaid behind closed doors that people like yourself wouldn't understand is massive. Teachers haven't stopped working at all. Creating and uploading lessons every day, trying to find new and imaginative ways to educate our children and support them, whilst supporting Key workers children as well. You haven't got a clue Big Al.

    School teachers to get an even longer one? Is that a joke? Since lockdown started I've worked on average of 55-60 hours both in school and at home while only being contracted to 32. Please don't think teachers aren't working. I want children back in school it's a sad place with so few in.

  46. The league has received the great news that it has been awarded Charter Standard Status. This is in no short measure due to the efforts of Brian Tallett who was completely new to CS and worked hard to put together the application. Thanks must also go to Josh Stockdale at the CCFA for his assistance and to the clubs for maintaining their own individual awards.

It may well be very high Dave, however, youngsters these days have the retention spans of goldfish & if someone says something they don’t like or get upset by, they then go somewhere else or say they don’t want to play with a load of ruffians. The youth football set up is all well & good but it just means someone else is doing all the running around for them. Young kids wearing club tracksuits, when did I miss that. !! Everything is put on a plate for them & then when they are asked to help run a club, they are not interested. Get these kids to respect the club they are playi

  49. Yet another fully established club falls by the wayside. Cornish football is in the biggest mess it’s every been in. We need to cut down the leagues & the number of clubs massively. Too many teams & not enough players, sponsors, committee members, supporters or general volunteers to keep the amount of teams running, sustainable. I know & appreciate what your answer will be Steve, we’ve had this conversation before, however, no one from the FA has ever been down to Cornwall to access & discuss the geographical location & issues we have here, basically, they don’t actually
