  1. The clubhouse is closed every afternoon and cleaned. Surfaces wiped down etc. Just got to be done Older.
  2. We have done our best at St Blazey to be sensible with the requests so that we can watch football. The clubhouse has a one way system and only the main bar open with screens in place. Hand sanitiser at each entrance and outside each set of toilets. Track and trace in place. Football wise we have track and trace, hand sanitiser at the main gate, advive to follow in the program and tanoy announcements which we increased today to remind people.
  3. Wednesday nights match between St Blazey and Liskeard is ON. St Blazey have hired in 2 portable floodlights with 4 lights on each one to make sure there is enough lights to cover the grandstand side. Last week supporters were given refunds although several left early. See Chris on the gate tomorrow night with any issues and he will sort things out if you are able to make it. Should be a good match. Come and enjoy some good local football.
  4. Nothing wrong with the rivalry between St Blazey and Newquay. Two good Cornish clubs. Shame to see a lack of red and white in the crowd last including the flags!! Miss seeing a good Newquay following.
  5. They were. We knew we had a problem with 1 floodlight but to have more bulbs knocked out on one side is just unfortunate due to a surge of power.
  6. The lights were not working before kick off. In fact a Newquay supporter who installed the lights some 30 years ago tryed to help us get them working. Thank you to him for his efforts. Not even his knowledge could help us on the night unfortunately.
  7. Ill get the exact stuff pictured tomorrow. Im waiting to put it on when i know we will have a good couple days of rain to wash it in. Should look great once thats done. Goal mouths already taking a battering. Think weve had around 14 home friendlies between 1st and 2nds and then training at times. Not enough rain to really help it recover. Now for a couple cuts before Saturday and get it stripped back up again.
  8. Have a look at the effect the decent fertiliser ive got is capable of doing. Used a spreader on a few areas and look at the colour its changed it to. And its growing well to. Left a few tracks but the test worked. Now to do the whole pitch.
  9. Yes. Fixtures were reversed as Newquay were having work on their lights carried out.
  10. Not fixed yet. One side not working properly. Just not good enough to play unfortunately.
  11. Unfortunately our floodlights are very high so having any work done on them isnt that easy. All the electric boxes are over 30 years old and they are knackered. If anything it might get things done even quicker now. Alot of clubs have a full set of lights with 12 bulbs where as we have 24 when fully working. Tonight we had 15 working in the end but not spread out enough. Roll on Saturday....and daylight.
  12. We can only apologise for tonights issues with the lights. A surge or power has stopped some lights coming on. We left the lights on after the game and by 9.45 this was how it looked. Really disappointing but nothing we could do. We actually have an electrian coming tomorrow and have received other quotes to get the work completed to upgrade the lights. A job we had planned on doing over the summer but with covid its been a challenge to even get someone to look at the floodlights. Apologies to everyone at Newquay A.F.C and everyone who came to watch on what was a perfect evening fo
  13. Exactly. Saltash did their best. Tickets available online in advance. One way system in the ground. Seats marked out as their bench style seats. Plenty of room around the ground if you wanted to be out the way. No issues at all.
  14. Slowly getting there. The return of the rain has helped bring the pitch back to life. The cylinder mower needed work on the belt. Now were cutting well again. Got 8 bags of fertiliser to go down. Will do that with some decent rain forcast.
  15. Everyone was spread out around the ground. No issues what so ever. Time to get on with things now and stop trying to score points.
  16. I agree. Music over football videos is a big no no. Ruins it completely.
  17. Very hard to include cup competitions. The prices for league games give someone 3 games free and access to all reserve games. If you up the price to include cup games theres a chance you wont have any home games in the cup. I think one season we had 1 home cup fixture and lost that!! So you could end up out of pocket. At least you can guarantee an offer on the 19 league home games.
  18. St Blazey season tickets are selling well. Just a quick reminder if anyone is intrested. Good price for all 1st team home league fixtures and reserve fixtures. Anyone wanting info can email me at paulbowden1980@googlemail.com
  19. Plenty of the wet stuff today. Just in time to recover the pitch ready for the new season.
  20. Looking very smart. Good to see the ground looking smart again. For years its felt like one good gust of wind would take half the ground with it. Hard work paying off now.
  21. Really enjoyed last night. Both teams gave it everything. A really good game to watch. Parkway finished the stronger but several excellent saves earned St Blazey a very good draw. The bar has been set!! Parkways ground looking really good. Tarmaced areas look very smart. Certainly a club that improves every season.
  22. To reduce the amount of home friendlies at Blaise Park. 2nds home Friday night and 1st team on Saturday.
