  1. Agree with Town mans summing up, thought a draw was a fair result over the 90 minutes. Would have been a shame on the other team if someone had nicked it last ten minutes. Both teams move on to Saturday in the FA cup still unbeaten and with plenty of positives for Mass and Dane. Apart from both teams picking up a few injuries during the game which was physical and fully committed to say the least! Hope there’s nothing long term. Thought the officials were very good, quite a few niggling fouls but the ref was sensible and realised the magnitude of the game and kept it flowing when possible and kept his cards in his pocket until the hour mark. It was probably not a classic with two very well drilled and fit teams cancelling each other out at times but it was enthralling none the less with loads of little mini battles going on all over the pitch for the superb crowd of 414 to enjoy. Thanks to Mark from Piran Films for asking me to summarise the game, the tower provides a great vantage point and its higher than it looks!! Great to work alongside commentator Tom Howe from the excellent Voice papers, nice to be alongside someone who’s as passionate as me and Deacs about all things Cornish football. Got to say Kellaway Park is looking fantastic these days, a real picture, really pleased for Paul and Mass, a chairman and manager who had a vision for the club a few years ago which has definitely now come to fruition, the fence surround looks superb and did its job a couple of times tonight as well!! As always great hospitality from Paul, what a superb clubman and guy to have around the place, he doesn’t stop! Enjoyed picking the MOM for the sponsors tonight. Difficult one, thought Archie Reay was superb first half, seemed like there was 2 of him on the pitch, popping up everywhere but by the end myself and Tom went for young Harrison Jewell. Looked solid at right back first half, getting forward with a couple of quality crosses as well and 2nd half he had to move into the centre after another great young talent Josh Storey had to leave the pitch. Wouldn’t normally go for a defender if I’m honest but he didn’t put a foot wrong all night and belied his young years. Must admit I’ve seen his dad put in a few performances like that over the years as a team mate and opponent! A chip off the old block as they say!! Great nights entertainment, there was even a firework display last 5 minutes from neighbouring Flambards!! A few fireworks on the pitch too towards the end but all ended well with a good hard earned point for both sides who I think will go on to have impressive seasons in the Western League 👍👏🏼⚽️ Good luck to both clubs who I’m sure will do Cornwall proud 🟡⚫️
  2. BODMIN 1-4 BRISTOL MANOR FARM ADMISSION £4 ATT 55 Never a 1-4 game this one! Thought Bodmin were the better side 1st half and deserved their half time lead. Levi and DJ up front looked sharp and could have had a hat-trick each on a luckier day. Great finish from DJ around the 35th minute mark when he dinked a little Messi esq finish over the impressive visiting keeper. TC and Simmo rock solid at the back as usual as they have been for so many years until Simmo went off for a rest on the hour mark and that’s when the goals started to come for BMF with two in as many minutes. Ollie Chenoweth in goal looked pretty unbeatable up until then apart from one chance midway through the 1st half when their big no.9 3 yards out, kicked the ball against his own face and out for a goal kick!! Bizarre one! All been there though! 🙄 A game of 2 halves for sure! I did wonder if this was BMF southern league side such was Bodmins dominance early doors, Blazey boss Laffs was there watching first half and enquired the same to a vocal Scottish Bristolian at the front of the stand who said they had 4 or 5 out. Spoke to Gilbey, Alan & Terry before the game and Simmo during it and Bodmin had a few out as well. Great to see them all by the way, top blokes. Forget this result, Bodmin will be right up there this season on this evidence, looks like Gilbey has worked his magic again and is building a quality team to challenge. Expensive day, £4 each for me and the Mrs, £2 for the mother in law, £12 at half time but what a superb hot dog, cup tea and chips for £4.50!! 👍👏🏼 Rather give my £22 to a local team than get mugged off watching a EFL game for £30 quid a pop these days or £70 for a Premier league game!! 🤔🙄😤 Good luck to Bodmin for the season ⚽️👏🏼
  3. Absolute scum Mart!! Hope you and everyone at the club comes back bigger and better and stronger for this set back mate 👍👏🏼⚽️
  4. STICKER 0-0 PENRYN Really good game of football!! One of those games where the scoreline doesn’t do it justice! Think Penryn hit the bar and post 4 times and missed a penalty and Sticker hit the woodwork twice. Both keepers made some good saves as well. Plenty for Popey and Flacky to be positive about I would have thought! Bumped into Avers after the game and he showed me the new dressing rooms, absolutely fantastic! Said the away ones are nearly as good as well!! Sticker deserve so much credit for all their work over the years, what a great venue to play your football these days, pitch was immaculate as well! Congrats to all the gents at the club, nice afternoon watching some good players 👍👏🏼⚽️
  5. Loved that old ground as a player but yeah the facilities are certainly a lot better these days WOTP!!! Lovely ground to watch a game of football on a nice evening 👍⚽️
  6. Forgot to mention the superb new box nets at Bodieve!! Looked a picture they did! Well done gents!! 👏
  7. Good report Phil, not much to add to that, agreed 👍⚽️ Rower has got Wadebridge well drilled, fit and lively. Nice to see him and Wittser as always tonight. Foxhole will do well in their league, got some quality players! Great to see Whetts back playing the 1st half after his broken leg and Lee Rickard playing the 2nd half up front where I always enjoy watching him play forcing a great save out the keeper 3 minutes from time 👏🏼 Darin still looking well, what a servant he’s been for the Foxes over the years! Top bloke! Did a bit of a breakdown for anyone interested, the Mrs ticktok videos disturbed me a bit so apologies for any wrong stats!! ADMISSION.

  8. Good summing up Phil, agree with all that 👍 Would say the crowd was more like 1500 though? Good 200 odd Boro fans there tonight! Ashes looked fit and well organised and are in for a good season in the Western League I reckon. Kimberley stadium looking great these days as well. Big thanks to Dave and Karl for looking after me and the Mrs tonight, great evening thanks gents. Good luck to Dane and the lads for the season, think it could be a good one 👍⚽️
  9. Gutted I can’t make this, Pete and Deano two top blokes and a great charity and cause. Gonna be some brilliant old ex players at Penlee Park on Friday night!! Hope there’s a good crowd to show your support and see some popular old faces! Should see some decent football too I reckon! Have a great night lads 👏🏼👍⚽️
  10. Thanks Greygen, yeah good game wasn’t it 👍⚽️ Like you say, very impressed with Matts Callington team! I played it down saying top 6 to be honest, never like to put pressure on but they could well be right up there challenging. Hard working, physical, and well organised with a bit of flair to boot and all that against quality opposition 👏🏼⚽️
  11. CALLINGTON 1-4 TIVERTON (HT 0-2) ATT: 83 Admission £2 👍⚽️ Enjoyable and competitive pre season friendly played on an excellent pitch at the Marshfield. Two teams that should be challenging for the top 6 in their respective leagues on this showing. Played in good spirits apart from a little 10 man bust up in the 68th minute after a couple meaty challenges. Cagey opening 20 minutes before Tivvy edged ahead and doubled their lead in the 38th minute with Theo Simpson looking sharp without finding the net. Callington came back well after the break with Jake Miller catching the eye, pulling a goal back on the hour before Tivvy showed their class in the last 25 minutes. Matt Wright with a couple of close range goals after unselfish play from team mates and the imposing Tyrone Mings lookalike Austen Booth heading home from a corner 3 minutes from time. Didn’t catch who scored the opener, a tap in at the far post after the ball eluded a crowd of players. Findlay Harrison getting the Cally goal, decent young target man. Lovely evening, lights came on in the 65th minute but were probably not needed tonight. 1st half) CALLINGTON shots on target 2) 33’ 40’. Shots off target 2) 27’ 42’ Corners 2 / TIVERTON shots on target 2) 20 ⚽️ 38⚽️ shots off target 4) 19, 22, 25, 28. Corners 5 2nd half). CALLINGTON shots on 2) 56’ 60⚽️ Shots off 1) 54. Corners 1. /.

  12. Darren watches Mo Salah every week so he knows a bit about diving watching the master!!! 😂
  13. Great result Bob! Think the Camels are in for a good season again! Saw an interview with Stuart after the Bideford game and think they got a few missing at the moment but they only lost that game 1-0 to put your result into perspective. 👏🏼⚽️ Was gonna pop up last night but like you say it was absolutely bucketing it down at 6.30 so decided to watch the young British girl at Wimbledon bless her. Nice to play in but not so great to watch!! Well done Ed, bagging a nice brace early doors! I know we can’t read too much into friendly matches but all the same it’s a great confidence booster to get a great result against quality higher opposition. Hope the Camels have a great season Bob 👍⚽️
  14. Premier league looks a strong division still, some really good sides in there! 👍⚽️
  15. Well said Phil 👍👏🏼 Said what I was thinking!! Western league clubs have had it pretty easy travelling wise since the days of when Saltash and Liskeard dominated the league! They were top sides I can tell you from experience! (some good, some bad!) Would love to see our sides do well again at that level and I’m sure they will. Our teams will be doing far more travelling than the rest of the teams in the league this season but ain’t heard any of them complaining! 🤔🙄👍⚽️
  16. 2 cracking matches yesterday with 14 goals!!! Think the Euros have just kick started, hopefully England v Germany will be another classic later, with us winning hopefully!? For anyone who hasn’t had enough football, the Copa America is at the Quarter final stage this weekend, first game 10pm Friday night Peru v Paraguay, 1am Brazil v Chile. Then Saturday night 11pm Uruguay v Colombia and 2am Argentina v Ecuador! Or if unlike me you don’t spend half your life up all night, all the games are on bbc i player 👍⚽️🏆 I had a sneaky quid on Paraguay at 40/1 beginning of the tournament so they got no chance!!!
  17. Great club to play for, a real sleeping giant and Penlee Park one of the best grounds in Cornwall to play your football. Reno and Danny top blokes to play for, any player thinking about it should get yourself down there, great club with a big history in Cornish football. Just one criticism, Penlee Park needs some nice black and white box nets!!! 😁👍⚽️ Finish the ground off lovely they would! Up the magpies 🖤🤍
  18. Good news Dave. Keep up the great work you do mate 👍⚽️👏🏼
  19. Good old FA looking after the grassroots game again! Must be the “magic” of the FA Cup.....it’s disappeared for nearly all the step 6 clubs!!! 😳🙄🏆
  20. Hear hear Fenman. Couldn’t agree more 👏🏼⚽️👍
  21. Hungary 1-3 Portugal France 2-1 Germany
  22. Scotland 2-1 Czech Republic Poland 2-1 Slovakia Spain 3-1 Sweden
  23. England 2-1 Croatia Austria 1-0 North Macedonia Netherlands 3-1 Ukraine
