  1. Is anyone able to host Lanner in a friendly game on Saturday? Message me on 07534 218069 or on https://www.facebook.com/adammitchell78
  2. Amazing how many people like to spout off and criticise about things they have little knowledge of, yet also refuse to do anything to offer assistance
  3. Whilst the League tables are currently set to PPG on Fulltime, as far as I'm aware there has been no confirmation of how the "Leagues" will be decided. In my own personal view, no team should be either penalised or rewarded for their choice of whether to continue or not. We were not aware of whether it will be PPG and nor do we really care. As mentioned before, our decision to continue was based on the fact that players wanted to play football again not sit around and wait until August. If teams are that desperate to cling on for promotion by not playing then that's up to them but in the lowest level of organised football surely the main aim is for those that want to play to be able to do so?
  4. Difficult balancing act though. If you have the majority of your team wanting to continue, doesn't mean they all do. And I have to admit, I hadn't factored in losing (as we have) 3 to cricket, some to a variety of work, uni, injuries, retired and one just plain disappeared (deleted Facebook account, doesn't respond at all to calls, texts or emails) From my point of view, it was never about continuing the League or starting a new cup, it was about providing football for those that wanted to keep playing
  5. This came out after all the clubs had made their final decision on whether to play or not.
  6. Think @Soccer Follower has been taking the long way around 😆. If you went you would have known for next time @Tom Trust .
  7. As I'm sure you are aware David, we were well out of our depth in the Premier Division after several unwarranted promotions and then a raft of players leaving. I thought you would remember playing for us last season alongside Peter Norfolk but imagine that's best ignored as it wouldn't fit the Dropship not taking players from any other teams rhetoric along with a few others......
  8. Credit to the Storm lads, they kept battling until the end. Chilman (5) Holness (3) Counter, Cowie and Hendry with the goals
  9. Have you seen the forecast? I don't think there will be a shortage come Saturday kick off 🌧️
  10. Thanks for the game, was a decent game of football despite the conditions. We felt the 2nd penalty was soft but didn't have complaint but can't help but feel aggrieved by the retake after the save. Your number 11 stood out for me, had a great game. Good luck in the next round.
  11. Not aware of any fixture there Dave. Not sure where you saw that?
  12. Today we travelled to Probus in a Trelawny League encounter. Unfortunately I missed the first 30 minutes or so of the game but by that point we had taken the lead after Matt Taylor Cowie converted a James Chilman cross. As I arrived Probus were looking good to get back in to the game but a Brad Clements goal line clearance kept them at bay. Not long after Paul Cannons headed home a Josh Ireson corner to give us a 2-0 lead at the break. Knowing that the next goal would be vital, we started the 2nd half on the front foot. Cowie returned the favour from earlier, playing in Chilman to finish and secure a 3 goal advantage. Probus were not done though, their striker fire a shot at goal after breaking down the left, keeper Matt Lello will probably feel he could have done slightly better as the block with his feet dropped straight to their player in the area who fired home. 3-1, game on. The energetic Cowie extended our lead after latching on to a delightfully chipped Ireson through ball and finishing well. A bit of 6 yard box ping pong saw Probus again pull a goal back to make it 4-2. James Chilman had another strike ruled out after the referee adjudged there to have been obstruction on the keeper before he fired home. And then it happened. It's not something that any of us really want to talk about but one particular person does. Although no stranger to a goal, this player is usually found nodding in from 2 yards or tapping in from 3. On this occasion though, Bradley Clements felt he had done enough running during the match so stayed back for a corner, rather than going up as usual. Probus defended the corner well and the clearance came out to the edge of the centre circle. It was at this moment Clements decided to be the Trelawny Leagues answer to Vincent Kompany. His first touch stayed within actual playing distance and resembled actual control. My mind went back to Guardiola who was shouting "No shoot Vinny" at this point. Nonetheless, Clements ran on to his own touch just outside the centre circle and hit what I can only describe as probably his finest moment in life - past, present and future. Like a rocket, the ball set off outside the post, curling in just enough to beat the poor Probus keeper and the ball rattled in to the top right stanchion. A really good enjoyable game played in great spirits. In a fine moment towards the end, Paul was joined in the back line by son Daniel Cannons for their first time together in Saturday football. All the best to Probus, see you on the return
  13. It's a shame because I quite enjoy having a good read of peoples match reports and how they saw the game from their perspective. I can think of a few who have relished typing up a 1000 word essay as a match report making it entertaining and funny. Sadly it seems there are less and less of these, a rise in the personal insults and abuse and I can't help feel it distracts significantly from the football part of the forum
  14. A serious player injury. Best wishes and a speedy recovery to him
  15. Unfortunately our opponents for tomorrow have withdrawn and we can't play at home. Is anyone willing and able to host a friendly against us? Contact Peggy on 07534218069
  16. Pleny of info here: https://www.cornwallfa.com/news/2020/jul/18/the-fa-issues-guidelines-for-the-return-of-outdoor-competitive-grassroots-football The way I undertsand it is any GROUNDS involved in the NLS are not to allow spectators (even if their 2nd/3rd teams are Trelawny) are not allowed spectators. Recreational football grounds are allowed spectators, they must follow usual standard social distancing (groups of no more than 6, 2m apart) Fairly certain that use of changing rooms is not allowed under any circumstances.
  17. Prior to the lockdown it was due to re-open, there were new landlords in there starting to do some work. We've not been able to get any updates since the lockdown, but have a couple of alternative plans should they not re-open
  18. A very valid question Mr Eddy. I assume I don't need to fill you in on the who what where and why of Lanner?
  19. Regarding Lanner applying, yes this is true. We very much struggled in the Prem last season and, although we were always able to raise a side, we lost some of our players and the team was effectively playing out of its depth. We felt that we would not survive as a club if we played another season at that level, so we decided to withdraw and apply to re-enter the league this season. This is not about a team wanting to burst its way up through the leagues with a team of "superstars" more about ensuring the future of a club that had been "promoted" all the way to the Prem without ever earning it (from 8th place the season before)
  20. Imagine if all of those games without an appointed ref weren't played.......
