  1. At the risk of appearing dim, what local leagues are classed as NLS feeder leagues? What "step" is ECPL, Duchy etc?
  2. I accept entirely that it's better to be safe than sorry, and that thousands have sadly died and thousands more may yet still die. I just don't get how it's "safe" to play football, but not for a scattering of spectators to watch.
  3. I'm hopefully off to watch cricket after dinner. As long as I don't touch the ball, and stand 6 feet away from anybody else, it appears I'm perfectly entitled to go. So what's different about watching a football match in a similarly open space?
  4. Here is a provisional list of Foxhole (ECPL) friendlies arranged so far: Wed 12 Aug Sticker away (TBC) Thurs 20 Aug St Mawgan home 6.30pm Tues 25 Aug St Austell reserves away 7.30pm Sat 29 Aug Godolphin home 3pm I will post any updates on here as soon as I learn of them. League games: Sat 5 Sep Newquay away Tues 8 Sep Newlyn East away
  5. Great news Dale. Best of luck from Foxhole AFC.
  6. Foxhole, under new player-manager Anton Lake, begin pre-season training at their Rec home ground, Goverseth, Foxhole on Tuesday 21st July from 6pm. Anton will be assisted by Lee Whetter and Aydan Rundle, and the management team invite all interested players to attend. The club is also looking for friendlies in August for both first and second teams; however, we will only be able to play at home after August 12th due to continued ground improvements.
  7. Tom, don't be put off by any negativity, best of luck to you. Your website is coming along nicely - well done. https://twitter.com/foxholestars?lang=en
  8. Well said Tom. There are dozens of youth matches going on every weekend (boys', girls' and mixed) and the majority of them are like the one you described. Of course, not all of the coaches and parents are in it for the right reasons, but thankfully most of them are. It's all too easy to criticise the youth of today but in my experience nearly all of them are respectful and likeable if you can be bothered to listen to them and to give them a chance. Long after we've all gone, they'll be the ones left to deal with the consequences of the likes of Trump, Brexit and global warming.
  9. In fairness, in the excitement of such a thrilling match, it was hard to keep track of everything going on so I can't be sure which St Day subs took to the field. Apologies if the error is mine. Best of luck to a fine St Day team in the next round. I still don't understand why rolling subs aren't standard in every competition.
  10. Saturday 14th September 2019 Senior Cup St Day 5 (Willis 4, Richards 45, 85, Williams 48, 86) Foxhole 2 (Coates 12, Cheshire 18) Foxhole (4-3-3): Ben Hurst; Ryan Wilkins, Josh Andrews, Angel Coates, Lee Whetter; Rory Barnicle, Levi Kerrigan, Frank McAvoy; Benno Bould, Tyler Cheshire, Nathan Papaioannou. Sub: Jay Manning. St Day (4-4-2): Ben Whiting; Sam Kevern, Matt Witts, Luke Hart, Tom Hogarth; Jacob Williams, Adam Stephens, Nathan Taylor, Joe Crossman; Jack Willis, Dan Richards. Subs: Louis Hall, Chris Dobson, Rob Hoskings, James Daniel, Joff Mallaber. In their first visit to the People's Republic in living memory, Foxhole's hopes of a day out on Easter Monday foundered at the first hurdle but they can count themselves desperately unlucky not to have at least forced extra time after a brave display. Twice striking the bar, and on the receiving end of perhaps the most incredible goal-line clearance ever, they unfortunately were also left to rue some unfortunate defensive mishaps and confusion as to whether the FA's rolling sub rule applied to one of their own competitions. Having already somehow fired wide after rounding the keeper, Willis put St Day ahead inside five minutes when Hurst allowed the lively striker's effort to squirm between his legs. However the super Foxes hit back with a fantastic volley from Coates before Cheshire turned Kevern and hit a peach into the far corner. Foxhole were to enjoy a decent spell of pressure and ought to have extended their advantage, with new signing McAvoy prominent. Their profligacy was punished seconds before the break when, out of nothing, Richards' drive again caught out Hurst, who, to be fair, had earlier performed miracles to deny Crossman in a rare home sortie. St Day again began the second half in blistering style, a hobbling Andrews unable to prevent Richards' cut-back for Williams to make it 3-2. Foxhole were to spend the next half hour camped in their opponents' final third, but the ball resolutely refused to find the net, largely due to determined defending from twin centre-halves Hogarth and Hart, and calm keeping from Whiting. Fortune was not on our side, though, as both McAvoy and Cheshire struck free-kicks against the bar, while Kevern amazingly blocked Bould's pile-driver from point-blank range after Whiting had smothered Manning's initial shot. Andrews was clearly in no fit state to continue but, with the already withdrawn Wilkins waiting to return to the fray, the referee vetoed his re-entry. St Day gleefully capitalised on now only having to face ten men to settle the match late on through Richards and Williams. Well played the desperately unlucky super Foxes for a great effort. Good luck to St Day. Many thanks to George Pattison, Ian Osborne and the home lino.
  11. In fairness, retrieving them from trees, brambles, gardens etc is not always easy at our level so I can sympathise with any clubs who choose, or who are forced, to use cheaper alternatives than ludicrously costly "official" match balls.
  12. http://fulltime-league.thefa.com/DisplayFixture.do?id=19443039 There's a Luke Johnson listed in Illogan's squad on Full-Time
  13. Does anybody know the name of the Penryn reserves keeper against Foxhole last Saturday? His is the only name I didn't get.
