  1. I'm shocked like many others. My condolences to his family and all those at Hayle AFC. Leuan please pass on condolences from myself and all at St Day AFC 🖤🖤🖤
  2. Hi all, Unfortunately our first team game is OFF tomorrow due to a precaution on our part, as one of our players and his family are all showing symptoms. We are awaiting test results and do not know if it is positive or negative so lets not turn into the BBC and start scaremongering. The FA guidelines state that training and matches do not count towards close contact, but we as a club are taking precautions due to the close contact of players (4 at a time) in changing rooms, car sharing of said player and him being within our clubhouse after the game. Clubhouse CCTV has been checked at th

  4. I stand corrected, 2minutes. Yep defo 3pm KO is fine, plus it gives an extra 30mins between the morning matches and afternoon matches. Although 2:30 or 3pm, it doesn't matter for Saturday it's going to be high winds (approx 40-50mph) and very heavy rain. Wrap up warm!😁
  5. Agree with older no problem at the moment. This was 6:30pm at St Day, TODAY. Ok we will lose another two minutes day-light by Saturday (minute per day) but I think we are ok. Sat 24th Oct St Day v Marazion 3pm KO
  6. 👀Let the opening fixtures commence for the saints👀 If you thought last weekend was big.....this weekend is huge. ⚽️Yes we are starting our league fixtures, ⚽️Yes we have TWO games at home, ⚽️Yes our 1st are in a big local derby vs Illogan but... ....Even bigger than that, our club captain is set to play his 350th FIRST team competitive match and his 355th club game. Matt Witts debut for the first team back in 2004 and if, that's if, he makes an appearance he will play his 350th FIRST team match. 👀Be there to see if he makes an appearance or not.👀
  7. So what have your Groundstaff of St Day AFC been up to for the past 6 weeks....working dam hard as always. Thanks to WRSsportpitches for his help & guidance. Also thanks to all those that have donated on our crowd funding page. Not something we would have ever had time to do normally. Also glad we did this in June and not May, the weather has been on our side that's for sure. Head over to our Facebook or Instagram to watch the 5 min video. https://www.facebook.com/114860939171843/posts/586206828703916/
  8. Older well done on your maintenance grant, is it now 70% from FF?? Your never going to buy a big compact tractor??😁 Leuan we got a couple of brief showers this evening, not much but every little helps. We got our grant as well. Putting this towards a big levelling project we are currently undertaking at VP. Hope all is well with everyone.
  9. Paul screenshot your phone with the picture up, then upload the screenshot. A screenshot is much smaller. Hope your well mate, following your work on social media, looking really good at Blaise Park.
  10. Hi all, Sorry been away for a while busy catching up on jobs. Been great weather for spraying weeds and painting. We seem to have lots of dandelions this year so after three days, nearly 35,000 steps!!!haha we have manged to spray the entire site for all of dandelions, daisies etc. Used Weedol lawn, really cheap and it has given great results already and hopefully will contain the intrusion for another year. Christ i have walked to parts of Vogue Park that i haven't been to for a while, every corner was sprayed Older - As I said to you on the phone the other day i have too use
  11. Hi Bruegel, Yes as BHD say we have recently lost our Chairman Dave Searle, who gave 55 years, continuous service to our club and sadly in these times giving him the send off he deserves has been difficult, but i think it was achieved on Thursday with lots of people "exercising" along the route at 2:30pm. Anyway back to the grass, like Leuan and Older catching up on other jobs, painting dugouts, organising a few other things whilst the new seed establishes. I did brush and roll our pitch but you have to be careful not to pull out the new seed. I have been also working on
  12. Also as I said earlier older, whilst you are fighting frost, only 8 miles up the road our new shoots are coming through. Think this is worth noting by players....whilst one club has conditions to be watering and growing grass, a club a few miles down the road is no where near that ground temperature. Next time you player think about saying "can't believe they've called it off" maybe think about how localised and diverse the weather is in cornwall.
  13. Looking good Luean, and I'm glad you've vertidrained then seeding as I seeded then vertidrain. So which is the correct way?? Or does it not matter?? Keen to hear people's thoughts, where are all the other groundsmen and/or women out there. Please feel free to comment.
  14. It certainly is a massive piece a kit and one that I thought you may cringe at older. Our pitch at VP is really incredibly dry, I have put the sprinklers on our goal mouth (Us groundsman arfe never happy!!) and a couple of other areas as they started to crack in the dry, plus I want to feed that seed that we put down. Ground temp is 10 degrees over in sunny St Day with my probe showing an air temp of 11-12 degrees, even in the bitterly easterly wind. No sign of frost out are way yet either. We fertilsed our pitch about 4 weeks ago with a trial of a 6 month slow release fert and initial outcome
  15. No top dressing this year as the funds normally come from our end of season awards weekend and the finals and cup finals we host making extra funds over the bar and kitchen. We have incorporated 60ton of sports sand for the last 3 years (180ton in total), the sand alone cost £1,100 each year then contractors to spread it. We must live within our means. Also instead of seeding both pitches, we are only doing the one pitch, been done this morning in two directions with bad areas being done in four directions. Taking your advice and cut down the number of bags used too. Both pitc
