    Foxhole 2 (Rundle 64, Papaioannou 80) St Dominick 2 (Ryall 61, Rogers 87)
    Foxhole came within three minutes of their first win of the season only for Rogers to bundle home a loose ball following a scramble in the six yard box. It was tough on the home side who had again produced a sensationally gritty display to frustrate their fancied opponents, particularly when facing a typical Goverseth gale in the first half. Keeping their shape impressively, the Foxes restricted St Dominick to shots from distance until Ryall cut in from the left to blast the ball past Baker. However Rundle soon equalised direct from a corner before Papaioannou raced on to a through ball to beat Blatchford. While the visitors enjoyed the majority of play, and had an effort cleared from the line in either half, their ecstasy at the late equaliser was a vivid indication of just how well the super Foxes had played.
    Good luck to St Dominick. Many thanks to Paul Roberts and the linos.

    Torpoint 1 (Jake White 44) Foxhole 0
    Magnificent Foxhole succumbed only to White's speculative free-kick moments from the end of a first half in which they defended stubbornly, limiting their high-flying hosts merely to sporadic chances. Torpoint enjoyed far more of the possession throughout but they lacked the guile and cutting edge required to break down a disciplined Foxes rearguard action again typified by Andrews, whose tenacious approach served to coax similarly excellent performances from his team-mates, in particular Wilkins, Mitchell and the returning Austin, whose composure on the ball offered a welcome different dimension to the engine room. Backed by the wind after the break, there was some optimism that the visitors could yet snatch at least a point but, other than a couple of half chances that both fell to Kerrigan, they were unable to offer sufficient support to the willing James. The commitment to the cause, however, remained palpable, auguring well for the rest of the campaign.
    Well done to the Super Foxes for another fantastic effort. Well played and good luck to Torpoint. Thanks to Alan Shaw and the linos.

    St Teath 3 (Brown 7, 49, Magyar 74) Foxhole 2 (Couch 22, Probert 42)
    Defensive frailties were again cruelly exposed as Foxhole snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. After recovering from conceding an early goal to Brown, who latched on to Hicks' ball to slot home, and being indebted to May for a couple of fine saves as St Teath's young strikers found themselves clear, the Foxes reached the break ahead, thanks to a brilliant long-range effort from Couch and a clever finish from Probert following a great turn. Changing ends meant the away side ostensibly had the benefit of both the slope and the wind, and they began the second half seemingly determined to finish their hosts off, only to find Thompson in top form. However, seconds after Hewett had headed Rundle's inswinging corner off the line, Brown again proved too quick for an injury-ravaged rearguard that was already missing Andrews, to poke home the equaliser. While Foxhole continued to press, St Teath always looked just as likely to grab the deciding fifth goal on the break, and so it proved, Magyar thumping a screamer into the top corner from miles out.
    Well played the Super Foxes. Congratulations to St Teath. Thanks to Dave Sellars and the linos.

    St Newlyn East 0 Foxhole 0
    Tuesday 8th September 2020
    Foxhole ground out a hard-earned point after a superb display full of grit, resilience and spirit. While the home team enjoyed a lion's share of the possession, they rarely looked capable of finding a way through a determined rearguard action. May was so well protected that he was only extended once when, in the final few minutes, a home forward finally managed to run beyond the outstanding Andrews / Kellow axis only to be denied by the keeper's legs. By that stage, Foxhole were looking every bit as likely to snatch the points, particularly once James was introduced and Rundle was able to relieve some pressure by running at a home defence well served by Seery, 
    Well played all the super Foxes for a brilliant performance against the odds. Good luck to St Newlyn East. Many thanks to Steve Tootle and the linos.

    Foxhole 0 Newquay 4 (Ferguson pen 36, Flores 52, Burt 79, Colman 82)
    Saturday 5th September 2020
    Foxhole's failure to capitalise on their domination in the first 20 minutes, when they squandered several golden chances, proved crucial as Newquay successfully weathered the storm, albeit often with some fortune, before ultimately running out comfortable victors. After the post had twice been struck through Kellow's header and James' drive, the visitors went ahead from the spot although Ferguson's weak kick was nearly saved by Lake, who had conceded the penalty after tripping Burnell. Heaton did well to foil James to his left after the break but that was to be virtually the last time his clean sheet was threatened and substitute Flores doubled the lead, tapping home from close range. Although the third didn't arrive until eleven minutes from time there was precious little sign of a comeback in the interim, Burt gleefully finding the net before Coleman rammed a screamer into the top corner to compound the misery.
    Hard luck the super Foxes and on to Newlyn East on Tuesday. Well played Newquay. Thanks to Will Annear, Simon Bunt and the numerous visiting linos.

    Newquay 8 (Shepard 23, 28, Price 49, 74, 84, Whetter og 63, Cole 78, 89) Foxhole 0
    Thursday 13th August 2020
     
    As expected, an impressive Newquay outfit duly completed an emphatic, if routine, victory over well-beaten visitors at an eerie Mount Wise. Foxhole, however, will take heart from restricting the home team to virtually no chances in the first half and producing some decent possession after the break, albeit while only rarely threatening to spoil Prentice’s clean sheet. Particularly after such a long layoff, it was always going to be a struggle but, as they say, it’s all about fitness and bedding in new players, as Couch and James were promoted from the reserves and Rundle and Allen made welcome returns to the white shirt.
    With Manning and Bickle hugging the touchlines high up the pitch, outnumbered central midfield duo Couch and Kerrigan found it tough going against a striped trio led by the experienced Shepard, who opened the scoring with an unstoppable free kick before notching a second from a tight angle after capitalising on a rare moment of defensive uncertainty. James and Cheshire were forced to live off scraps against twin centre-halves Jamieson and Downing, but there were sufficient glimpses of a developing understanding to suggest potential success when facing less imposing figures in the ECPL. Papaioannou and Rundle both did well up against the talismanic outside-right Gosling, the joint second-highest scorer of all time for the full Gibraltan national team, while Andrews showed what an asset to the team he is with his pace and determination alongside Whetter.
    Foxhole undoubtedly looked more comfortable on the ball following the introduction of McAvoy, Allen and Deadman at the break, while the eager Bould offered a new dimension running in behind, but, even with the temporary withdrawal of Gosling, there was no respite as the bustling centre-forward Evans joined the action. Evans' arrival also served to vastly increase the threat offered by the hitherto largely anonymous Cole and Price, the latter of whom made it 3-0 fortuitously, his eminently saveable drive from the edge of the box being deflected over a stranded Hurst. The combination of Bray’s explosive pace against a tiring defence was always likely to prove decisive, and, from a typically forceful run, his low cross was turned into his own net by Whetter, before Price made it five from close range after a spot of pinball. Newquay ruthlessly exposed the alarming gaps that were appearing as the Foxes grew ever more weary despite countless substitutions, especially once a suitably refreshed Gosling returned, this time at left-half, and he soon provided unmissable assists for Cole and Price (for his hat-trick), before Cole completed the rout by displaying the sort of desire to chase a lost cause that Foxhole need to emulate. Should they do, the lessons learnt tonight, such as the importance of sticking together, tracking back, showing for the ball and trusting your first touch, will mean this was a worthwhile exercise regardless of the score.
    Well played the super Foxes. Good luck to Newquay. Many thanks to Steve Tootle and the home lino.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    Big thank you to Simon at Hayle for finding my invaluable notebook where I left it in their stand. I didn't see him this morning when I picked it up so couldn't thank him personally. 'Course, my enforced Sunday morning visit did acquaint me with what must happen at a lot of clubs, that is the Youth football. I watched the last 15 mins or so of Hayle v Helston U10s and it was so refreshing to see so many healthy-looking youngsters (no obesity crisis here!) enjoying a full-blooded match, ending with a 4 - 3 win for Helston. I'd wondered if I might witness some of the boorish behaviour that one reads of where parents get nasty towards the ref, the opposition, their own kids - but I saw none of that, just mums and dads encouraging the lads. But there was one mum, bless her, of the Hayle 'keeper - bless her. The lad took a knock conceding the 4th goal. Nothing nasty but he was rubbing a sore ankle as the teams went to kick off - and his mum ran onto the pitch to see to her son! Will he live it down? But when you read about neglected kids, even kids abused by their own families, its nice to see a caring mum. Be embarrassing for Jordan Pickford, though....! Hayle had a lad wearing 6 who was different class, a real natural: ditto Helston's No 12. Now, people expect me to be grumpy and critical; in which case, where was all this brilliant organised club football 60 years ago?
