  1. What are the chances of the game being on Jason, might get over for a watch.
  2. Dave Potham, you did not refrain from posting total garbage about me and the game I called off at Newquay, or were you posting for the ECPL and using information they had provided for you, On another point you still have not messaged me as per my invite.
  3. Hi Dave, I have in the past been appointed as an assistant but that only about twice, the reasoning probably is the travelling distance for me as I am from the Truro area. but 100% definate that I have never refereed at that ground. ECPL`s mistake could be that there is another referee from the Plymouth area with the same name as myself. Also Dave i am from up country and have been in Cornwall for only 20 years.
  4. ECPL, I invited you to message me, you have not taken up that invite, I will repeat what I have already posted, I HAVE NEVER REFEREED AT LISKEARD. I don’t know who you think I am but I am quite willing to let you know ,I will also bring you up to date with my experience as a referee.
  5. Dave, I believe he did another pitch inspection at another ground, but as I said in my first post it did not start to rain until I reached Goonhavern which time wise was about 12.45 hrs so an even later pitch inspection maybe would not have reached a different conclusion.
  6. ECPL, when will you learn,little tip follows, when in hole stop digging. As for years experience try 46 years for me and another point I have never refereed at Liskeard. So once again you do not know what you are talking about. If you want to know more of my experience etc please feel free to message me.
  7. ECPL For all your words of wisdom you actually know nothing, so before spouting off on here you should check all the facts. 1/ Newquay have done all they could to get the game played. 2/ Newquay arranged for a local referee to inspect the pitch at 09.30 this morning. 3/ At the time of the pitch inspection and after a reasonable day weatherwise yesterday he could find no reason to call off the game,and advised me accordingly. 4/ I left home at about 12.45 but by the time i reached Goonhavern it was hammering down and with the rainfall we have been having it had nowhere to go except sit on the surface. 5/ I did a thorough pitch inspection and with about 60% of the pitch having standing water and it still raining hard I made the decision to call off the game, a decision may I say that was not taken lightly for i did realise how far St Dominick had travelled. 6/ Two St Dominick players after seeing the pitch remarked to me " we cannot play on that". 7/ As for being told the pitch was playable I am far more experienced than the person who made that remark and I deemed it unsafe.. 8/ If you really want to know my fee and expenses please ask the Newquay chairman, I am sure with my permission he will inform you.
  8. ECPL, it was not stupid I deemed the pitch to be unplayable due to 60% of the pitch having standing water and the weather forecast was for the rain to continue .
  9. BHD, out of interest back in the seventies two seasons running we invited managers and players to one of our meetings to discuss anything related to LOAF or any concerns they may have, quess what, no one turned up, so in reality things have not changed.
  10. Dave, it’s because that is what you are supposed to do, in theory the ref should have a note of the subs and also the player who has been substituted, personally I just make a note of the relevant shirt numbers , of course if you have neutral assistant you delegate on of them to keep the shirt number noted.
  11. Karaoke, I wouldn’t put money on that if I were you.
  12. No problem karaoke, any time you need advice please feel free to ask me and I will give you the wisdom of all my experience.
  13. Karaoke, so you do not keep a record of subs in your notebook.
  14. Thanks for asking, yes very well Rappo and yes it certainly did interrupt the flow of the game. Karaoke you well know as a referee you are supposed to keep a note of all subs used so at the end of the game my notebook had the numbers used.
