  1. Glen I get it but do you not think if as a club if you made the effort to travel but might not have made it on time their would have been an option for Bude to ‘hang on’ and the 2:30ko delayed if you rung them enroute.....I’m pretty sure as a player when I had arrived at the ground got changed and was out warming up to be told a team would be 15min late I wouldn’t have chucked the cabbage patch kids about and stormed off 🤷‍♂️
  2. Trelawny Premier Holman SC 3-0 Lanner first home game of the season, pitch and changing rooms looking fantastic and the odd shaped ball chuckers adding to a really lively sporting atmosphere down at Blaythorne. We promptly decided to bugger that up by playing pretty garbage first half and missing the 6 min penalty through jack Mankee didn’t settle the nerves too much either! Normallly I don’t dwell on penalty misses but the amount of grief I got last year for the semifinal miss with even a song dedicated to it means it gets a mention 😳😂 To be fair Lanner were much improved and their keeper seriously had a 1973 Polish aura about him (that comment has just been lost on 80% of this forum😉) 0-0 HT Holmans were shooting towards their equivilant of the Kop end (scoreboard end) and got the breakthrough with a Rob Hopkins header from a corner which settled everyone down a bit browner whacked in 2 more to make it 3-0 although the jury is out that maybe Danny park got the third in his last match before he becomes a tax dodging student but a satisfactory 3 points keeps Holmans top but need to improve before the really tricky visit of Threemilestone next week. Game today very well reffed by stand in Danny Inch 👍
  3. Paul give me a shout when you need the info regarding Holmans.
  4. Haha that will explain after 23 years at the club why I’m currently Club Secretary...again!!! - Good theory John 👍😂
  5. It’s player movement that causes the issue not the teams unfortunately and very difficult to find a solution for the league. One season a team might have a fantastic side the next they may have a mass exodus and the side is in a higher league getting thumped. Until players start showing a bit of club loyalty and becoming part of that community rather then flip-flopping from one side to another it will never be solved had an interesting conversation with another club stalwart yesterday and we discussed this subject and kind of agreed that the indicator is probably when you come to the end of your playing days which is the side you would call ‘your club’ to go and watch and have a beer with old teammates in the clubhouse after - difficult If as a player you have moved from one club to another every couple of years
  6. Trelawny Premier Probus 1 - 2 Holman Sports Club The visitors were made to work hard by a home defence that were as solid as a Donald Trump Wall built by Mexicans and Holmans struggled to break through and like the well versed famous children’s book ‘Going on a bear hunt ‘couldn’t go over it couldn’t go under it and unlike the book couldn’t go through it either’ pretty much stalemate first half which was a bit frustrating and a little bit of unnecessary niggle crept in which to be honest the ref wasn’t handling the best HT 0-0 2nd half livened up some what! 50th min a shoulder to shoulder challenge just after half time between Adam in the Holmans Goal and a Probus striker resulted in a penalty........must be one of those pesky new rules that anything 5 yards outside the box is now a penalty luckily the ref saw it from the halfway line so was close enough to be sure 🤔 Probus 1-0 Holmans. Adam fancied a bit of a rest for 10min at this point and ended up in the ‘bin of sin’ for being a cheeky so and so to the ref resulting in Jeweller ending up between the sticks. The home side took full advantage of the extra man by having their central midfielder sent off for a 2nd yellow within 5 min so that worked out well and then just to add to the issue conceded two goals in quick succession.....nearly as quick as the lifespan of two England opening batsman in an Ashes test. With the away side now 1-2 up the game petered out to finish 1-2 with the Holmans goals coming from Jack Mankee and a stewards enquiry on the 2nd as to if it was an OG from the corner or Will Snapes.........as it’s be nice to Gingers Week I will give it to Will Not the best performance today but 5 away games 5 wins so can’t grumble at that and back to Blaythorne next week for the start of 3 home fixtures beginning with Lanner 2:30 Kick Off
  7. Trelawny Premier Newlyn Non-Athletico 1-6 Holmans (HT 1-1) Jack Mankee x2 Sam Nettle Matt Woodward Will Trew Danny Park sorry wasn’t at the game to do a report but good to get going and a valuable 3 points Holmans travel to Lanner for next game on Saturday 24th August
  8. What I think might need to happen Dave is all clubs detach players now not signed on - I will be doing it for our club this week at least that will get rid of the ‘current club’ status which can confuse the issue
  9. No problem John and agree Club secretaries are now bypassed on the WGS system making a single point of contact very difficult to control🤯
  10. Interesting that John I’m still waiting for the NOA for Reece Monteith to PZ 😳
  11. These leagues are now Combo and ECPL in all but name! Same standard same players......same teams! On that evidence I don’t see why the remaining combo and ECPL sides would wish to remain where they are as the travelling issue has gone.........The burning question I would pose now though with this new development is where does that leave the Combo & ECPL do they continue (with no teams!) or are they to be made up of sides from the top division of Duchy and Trelawny respectively?......Combo and ECPL been thrown under a bit of a bus here unfortunately. The FA have created a step 7 league with the same format that was already there
  12. What now happens to the remaining 7 sides in the combination league? Do they continue with an additional 9 sides from Trelawny Premier or Is the combo to discontinue and the 9 sides are absorbed into the Trelawny league???

    Do you fancy a friendly with Holman's combo side & FHFL2 side on either the 24th July or 14th August. We would have to play away but if you want to use your 3G pitch we will be happy to pay half. Would be good to play a local side and have 2 games and a few beers after
