  1. Prophet Burt Beel. Pugh(c) Dingle Pope Gardner Lugg Gerald Baron. Rapsey Subs) Martyn, Brown, Lenton, Eva Pretty sure that was the side that day Dave. Drew 1-1 with Dave scoring a header to equalise playing in midfield in his younger days and Pughie was captain. Was like Virgil Van Dyke when he was 17! Big old monster for a kid! Burtie was playing right back for Newquay 1st team at 16 before injury.ended his career by 21, Beeler joined the Army at 18, Dings had a good SWL career, Popey and Gerald both had injuries and fell away from the men’s game, although I think Grenville played a few seasons at Bideford? Bars was a better striker than me back then In my opinion but never fulfilled his huge potential with injuries and other stuff, me and Dave luckily went on to win loads with Falmouth a few years later playing in a great team, Browner had a couple seasons with a good Bodmin side, Milky Lenton tough as nails joined the Marines, and the talented Mark Eva played down West but was unlucky with injuries when he got to men’s football. Big Trev in goal disappeared from football altogether and Nige got spotted by Bristol Rovers the following season and the rest is history as they say! 650 Premier league appearances and 23 England caps! Great bloke Nige deserved everything he got, as they say it’s a funny old game!! 😀👍⚽️ Just can’t believe it’s 36 years ago! 😳🙄🤔
  2. Hi Dave, hope you're safe and well mate. During the boredom I found this beauty from my first season in the County Youth team when I was 16. You might notice our "back up" keeper in the squad, a certain Nigel Martyn!!! Think he went on to do better than the rest of us!! 😁👍👏 5 Mark's in that squad as well! Glad no one called me that anyway! Only my mum when I was in trouble!! 😁🙄 Decent side but we lost a couple silly games that season! 🙄😮 All the best Dave, enjoy looking at the old county youth sides over the years, keep them coming mate 👍⚽️
  3. Well done Phil as usual, touch of class by you all 👏🏼👊🏼👌⚽️
  4. Take all the points off teams, take all the goals off the scorers, but keep the suspensions!! 🤔 The season not really expunged then is it! 😳🙄🧐
  5. Ordered a Chinese delivery...took ages, so when he pulled up at the end of the drive I went out to take it off him. He started shouting ISOLATE, ISOLATE!!! I said yeah don’t worry bout it mate, I know you must be busy!! 😀
  6. DHL driver been out working 14 hours a day for the last 3 weeks delivering toilet roll to the elderly...just gone sick with a bad tissue injury
  7. Well done gents, great work 👏🏼 Lucky lads to be playing on those pitches...whenever they do!? 🤔👍 Don’t know if anyone from the SWPL looks on here but both these clubs have applied to go up next season!! Have a look at those pitches and facilities!!!.........Just saying 😀👊🏼
  8. Mark!! Someone has nicked your goalposts mate!!! 😳🤔 Both pitches looking superb gents 👏🏼
  9. I’m off for a few days now Dave but if you want to drop those pasties and cakes around to me I’ll make sure I get them to work safely next week for you mate! 👍😀😷
  10. Haha cheers Rod, not sure what type of job it would be with these knackered old knees mate! I’m 53 next month! 🙄🤓 Just had 12 holes of golf with my youngest lad up Plymouth and I’m limping going into Dominoes to get my free NHS workers pizza!! 😷🤔⛳️ Bakes is right though, I’m getting a bit heavy eating his fag ash and chips speciality watching Penryn every week! Good memories from Lafrowda Park over the years though Rod 👍 some black and blue shins and calves as well off Randell bless him 😀👍⚽️
  11. Els be an asset for any club he plays for and a top bloke with it 👍👌⚽️ That true tho!? Scored some crackers on that Chivy pitch if I remember rightly eh Els/Wellsy? 👏🏼👍⚽️
  12. Well done Phil, top work as always. Points per game is the only fair way to sort out the league tables I think, especially in Cornwall where some teams have played 5 more games than others. At the end of the day football comes second to people’s well being. Good luck to all our Cornish clubs at whatever level and hope this doesn’t affect you all too much. Keep the faith as they say at Celtic 👍⚽️
  13. Very sad news Mark. Dave was a rare breed in this day and age. Wonderful service to a great club. Love and best wishes to all Dave's family and friends who must be very proud.
  14. I think common sense should prevail and we should end the leagues immediately with the the league positions as they are.......Penryn champions!!! 😷🤒🤮 👍⚽️🏆😂😂😂
  15. Pitch might be wet but the box nets are looking good Bakes!!! 👍👌😀👏🏼
