  1. Over run on the new stadium , rumours that something may be wrong with the actual building itself , no wonder they didn't sign anyone they may have to cough up more cash towards the project
  2. Good summing up Andy , sorry my report was so sparing but it was my lads 21 birthday so we went out , good to see you again , deserved winners good luck in the next round , see you soon , home draw against one of the big boys would be a fair reward .
  3. Hayle1-2 Perranwell att 27 good luck to Perranwell in the next round .
  4. Still need some more players .
  5. Had the pleasure of playing walking football this morning in a friendly at Lanivet community centre, very impressive it is great changing facilities , nice Muga , and food in the pub afterwards great morning , were made very welcome , pity about the score 5- 1 to the home team , equal first half but the second half we were under the cosh , learning curve for us West Cornwal. , a bit short on numbers today , but beat fair and square the old knee is sore now , but enjoyable , we are still looking for one or two more to join our team, the only thing is you have to be over50 , there must be some ex players in the Penwith area that fancy a game , another tournament next month at Bodmin , we train Sunday mornings at Mounts Bay 9-10 on the 3g or if wet inside in the sports hall , rolling subs in games , don't underestimate the walking football it is better than it sounds . If you need any information message me on here . The winner of the tournament has a change to represent Cornwall in the people's cup , so that might be a an incentive for some .

    3G Falmouth School pitch officially opened

    Panda £ 50 for 1 hour so 75 quid for a game ? If it is a league fixture the home side will pay plus match fees , so a lot of money for a game , if training not many club's have 30 turning up in a session so to be fair Big Al has a valid point , and is right to point it out . I agree Fanfare , there are a few on here I don't agree with probably the same with me , but as long as it does get personal everyone is welcome to comment , a d there are some very knowledgeable posters on here .
  7. Hayle went in at half time with a comfortable 2_0 lead second half west Cornwall pulled two back Hayle scored late on to earn the points , well reffed by Alan Hoon West Cornwall probably deserved a point , but a good finish by George Holman was the difference , West Cornwall keeper made a couple of good saves , not the best football on display in the second half , but three point on the road
  8. Hayle lost 2÷ 0to Wendron , 1 nil half time well taken 2 goal to put the game to bed , Danny Ford made a coup,e of good saves to keep the score to 2 , Wendron deserved winners today , not a lot happening for Hayle up front today , a few changes to personal but that is no excuse , some Hayle players need to play to the whistle , and stop the moaning and just play the game , we all make mistakes but gripping about them doesntchange things , Wendron with amix of youth and experience played the better football over 9o minutes , good to meet Peter Thorne again another unsung hero of local football. Without people , like Peter there would be less local football to enjoy , att today 33 plus two dogs , good luck to Wendron in the next round and supplementary cup for Hayle , always next season to quote Older lol
  9. Hayle 7_0 , 3 nil ht att 41 plus 1dog a Mike dowrick , and Bob Butler , good win , St Agnes have some young players and they try to get the ball down a d play football, Hayle were just to strong on the day the aggie keeper made some important saves to keep the score down , ref Matt had a good game and played advantage well leading to a goal for Hayle , 4 bookings and a red card late on for an alleged stamp on the aggie keeper , which is correct action for this offence, . Pitch was in excellent condition again thanks to groundsman of the year Greg , cracking weather bit of confusion over goals scored for Hayle or it might just be a senior moment lol , just wait for someone to put up later , some good young players at St,Agnes if they can stay together they will come good in the long run .
  10. Hayle lost 3_0 away to Perranporth , two defensive mistakes , not Hayle best game , 2_0 ht better second half from Hayle but didn't really trouble Perranporth , late 3 to put the game to bed , Perranporth took their chances Hayle didn't make enough , Cameron Irish went off injured after 15 mins , which was a blow . , you can't give away silly goals against a good combo team and expect to get a result .
  11. Keep your fingers crossed I think some may come available today , after pitch / facility inspections .

    Yet again no ref yet

    Well said Mangle very good post , another volunteer trying to keep our local football going , treasure them .
  13. To make it permanent you just need 3.5 million
  14. Cameron Irish with two , Kane Williams with the third , 3-1 att 26 deserved win , some robust challenges from St Stephens in the first half , but the ref was on hand to award the free kicks , Hayle stood up well and put one or two of their own in as well , ground a result out today Cam with two poachers goals from defensive lapses the only real change St, Stephens had resulted in another poachers goal with their striker getting between defender and keeper after the keeper shouted his ball , up to that point Hayle soaked up most of the pressure , the saints keeper was the busier by far and made a couple of decent saves . Pitch was in good condition , the wind didn't help , with both sides resorting to long ball instead of bringing the ball down and passing on the floor , good luck to the saints for the rest of your season , look forward to the next round , home draw against one of the top teams would be fantastic , fingers crossed .

    Yet again no ref yet

    Senior cup , this weekend as well , last weekend there was also a combo game cancelled because no ref available , over the past couple of seasons some have retired , a friend of mine has taken up the whistle but unfortunately he has had to work on Saturday's, several factors have lead to the shortage , and the usual they get paid lol , who wants to get shouted at , swore at , and ridiculed on social media , for two hours on a Saturday, the other classic well they don't have to put up with it , well perhaps they are not and finding other past times , support them , make them welcome at your ground , invite them for a drink after the game , they do it because they love football just like you and me , talk to them majority have worked in the morning before a game and like us are rushing to get to a game . We all have bad games be it players ,managers , ref or linos , but leave it on the pitch .
  16. In my opinion I am pretty sure he is also a big wind up merchant .
  17. Plenty of keyboard warriors on all social media , no different on here I am afraid , it's a shame
  18. It's ok for people to knock Ludgvan but they are trying really hard to get a team out and compete , 16-0 is a pasting in any league but the committee have been working for weeks to try and turn things around , they don't want to give up their place in the league without a fight , yes it would be easy to chuck it in and take a fine for pulling out the league , but that isn't what Ludgvan are about . Perhaps some players who left need to look at themselves , and think why they left when last season they pushed hard for the league , . Hope they can turn things around but cut them some slack and hopefully whoever you support won't one day be in the same position .

    Big money signing

    Look it is an open secret that money changes hands it has gone on for years , but clubs need to be aware that they are libel to pay tax on this , if you have a sugar daddy or mummy good luck with that , but when it runs out bye bye to your team and can set you back seasons , silly paying money at this level but it's their money and they can do what they want with it , just be aware if the club doesn't declare it the tax man will come a calling
  20. Credit to Redruth today they could have snatched a point late on if it wasn't for a good save from Danny Ford , Hayle had lots of possession and attempts at goal but couldnt score , att 30 not Hayles best game this season but some of that was the way Redruth played today , a few silly niggles late on but a good sporting contest over all Cameron to the rescue today but no more than he deserved for all his work , Kane in midfield was excellent again , and zac and Chris at the back have got a very good understanding going on . Not Hayles free flowingfootball of late but three points in the bag , att 30 good to meet postman pat again yet another volunteer who gives his everything to his club , good luck to Redruth until we meet next time , dont under estimate them they are a better side than their legue position .
  21. Well hopefully all the supporters of Truro will get the answers they all deserve , a big club from Cornwalls only city , , PR hasn't been good and supporters divided , looking in from the outside it is a soap opera , no ground , home games Torquay , low match support bad press , supporters chairman against each other . Truro fans have had some good highs but recently a lot of lows , and how many fans from other teams miss playing against Truro reserves , or seeing a cup final at the ground , cracking stadium , lots of parking ,easy to get to and a large bar area , what a waste , hope you all get what you deserve as fans and not what a few people think the club should get , Good luck from me .
  22. Dates please CBT Sorry CTB
  23. Congratulations on your award Greg well deserved , wind lol if you play the ball on the floor you don't have to worry about wind , hence the name football . 12 games in 17 years well done for all the hard work you have put in over the years ,
  24. Hayle 5-2 Lizard , tale of two halves , Lizard went 1 up with a penalty and deserved they settled well and played some good football Hayle huffed and puffed and to many long balls played . Cameron pulled a goal back from a welltaken free kick and then doubled his tally with a penalty ht 2-1 , if Lizard made their chances into goals would have been a different score at That stage , second half Hayle got back to playing football Cameron got his hatrick , another was turned into the net for an own goal from a Scott date cross , quickly after this a defensive lapse cost a goal and from being comfortable some jitters crept in , Ben Williams struck late on after being set up by Cameron . 33 attended and would have seen some attractive football from both teams , good midfield battle well reffed by Jamie Mooney in the right position to give both penalties . Lizard will catch out several teams with their football a good mix of youth and experience , and strong in the challenges . Hayle were slow in the first half but got their act together in the second half and played much better Cameron will get the plaudits for his goals , but sean , Barbs , and Kane put in a good shift as well , look forward to the return fixture and had a good chat with the Lizard fixture secretary , lino another person behind the scences at a club without these peop,e there would be no football clubs .
