  1. Well done Sticker and St Dennis - good wins today after tough seasons so far. Unlucky to Godolphin, who judging by the score line must have been much improved today.
  2. Probus Reserves 1 St Buryan 4 Trelawny 2 We were pretty woeful today but we had enough chances to win but didn’t work their keeper enough. They received a few gifts from us today to help them on their way. Thanks to the ref. Not really anything else to add today! Well done Storm - great result.
  3. RIP Ken Sincere condolences to Mark, Joe and the family from all at Probus. Some great tributes above and his involvement with the ECPL will be sadly missed.
  4. Probus 3 Goonhavern 1 Trelawny Premiership The conditions were really tough for both teams with the soft ground being the biggest challenge, which made staying on your feet very difficult. Both teams competed well but I thought that we (Probus) deserved the win after having the better chances. We led 1-0 at halftime but I can't remember how we scored or who scored it (probably because I've headed the ball too much over the years!) We knew that we had to defend well because one slip would let Goonhavern back into the game. We increased our lead about halfway through the second half when Dean Southworth headed in a corner but Goonhavern responded and made it 2-1 with a good finish. They then had their best spell of the game and could have equalised but for a goal bound shot being deflected wide. We then made it 3-1 shortly after when George Marris scored with a good finish (after earlier blasting over from about 3 yards!). This was a good competitive game, in as difficult conditions as I can remember playing in. Thanks to the referee, Tim Reeks, who had a good game. We move up to 8th, level on points with Newlyn Lions in 7th. No game for us next week and our next game is away at leaders Holmans in 2 weeks.
  5. @feedtheshak He's still running around, shouting about it on the pitch I expect but he's probably lit a cigarette by now though!
  6. Probus 4 Newlyn Non-Athletico 3 I await @Mangle's report with interest! Newlyn will be gutted not to get something from the game and the battled really well from start to finish. The game was played in heavy conditions that hampered both teams. NNA took the lead when their centre forward slid the ball home from close range after being played through by his strike partner. We equalised not long after when Ben Daniel headed home from a corner. NNA had a goal disallowed when a free-kick from 30 yards hit the bar and their player reacted first and then over head kicked the ball into the net, but unfortunately for him he was offside. I then hit the bar with a header from another corner but it remained 1-1 until halftime. NNA took the lead when from a corner our defending was shocking and their centre forward finished well. We had a few chances but eventually equalised when our keeper, Chaz Bowyer, kicked from his hands and it travelled the length of the pitch and with the Newlyn keeper waiting for it Josh Penrose jumped higher and headed the ball in. Jack Truscott slotted home from close range to put us 3-2 up but then NNA capitalised on a defensive error to make it 3-3 with a few minutes left. Then came the real drama when there was a foul by a NNA player on one of our players. They felt aggrieved because they thought there was a foul on their player beforehand. The NNA was given a straight red - I'm not sure whether it was for the foul or something he said. Dean Southworth then fired the freekick home over the keeper and to earn us all 3 points. One of the NNA players kept having a go at the ref and he received a straight red before the game kicked off again. I believe it was for foul and abusive language. The game kicked off again with a NNA player shooting at goal and that was the last kick of the game. Im sure Newlyn will be dissapointed to take no points from the game when, in my opinion, the deserved at least a draw and on another day they would have won. We missed lots of chances and our defending was poor. Thanks to the referee, Callum Gillman, who I thought had a good game - it's the first time I've ever been involved in a game where the ref used spray to indicate where the free kick and 10 yard marks were! Goonhavern at home for us next week.
  7. Very unlikely I will be playing into my 60's mate....I will keep going as long as I can but the legs don't work as well as they used to 😂
  8. I will be more than happy if I'm playing in the second team next week mate, so I'm delighted the firsts won and got a clean sheet! 😜 The first team are unbeaten in the league since November.....but we've only played 3 games and we've won all 3 👍
  9. I’ve been told it was Lanner 0 Probus 6 in The Premiership. Unfortunately I wasn’t there today.
  10. Absolutely gutted to read this. Ray was a top man who was a passionate Truro City supporter. I really enjoyed reading his posts on here and his banter was always fun to read. RIP Ray and condolences to all the family.
  11. It's not wide enough as @Titus Bramble says, but surely it's the same for both teams?! Unfortunately when the pitch was set-up originally the FA regulations/laws don't appear to have been taken into consideration which is a real shame. I suppose cost was the main consideration.
  12. Probably best that everyone went Christmas shopping rather than a VOLUNTEER took control of the game then! I have been known to have disagreements with referees (they were usually right!) in the past but I would much rather play a game than go into town shopping! 😂
  13. Probus 3 Troon 0 Thank you to the Troon players for observing a minutes silence in our first home game since in my dad passed away last week. We took the lead when a corner from George Marris went straight in. Troon hit the bar from a free-kick and that was the closest they came to scoring in the game. We restricted them to half chances and I thought we did ok defensively for our first clean sheet in the league this season - our centre backs combined age was 106 years old (of which I'm responsible for 44 years!). We increased our lead halfway through the second half (I can't remember who scored!) and I should have increased the lead from a corner when I somehow managed to volley the ball over from about 6 yards! We eventually made it 3-0 with 10 minutes to go when a cross found Jago Bayley, who laid it off to Dean Southworth, who finished well. Thank you to Troon for a good, competitive game and for coming back to the club afterwards. Thanks also to the referee, Sam Doble, who had a good game.
