    Great question Rob1978. This in fact a new toilet block and sports physio room. As the build for the new clubhouse commences, it was very quickly realised that the existing toilets would be out of use due to their location. So the decision was made to build the separate facility opposite the players entrance to the changing rooms. This will also satisfy any future ground grading requirements for eventual promotion to the Southern League. It will also keep the new club house free from muddy football boots from the kids playing on the grass area. The new toilet block will have facilities for male, female and disabled along with a designated physio room, which is also a requirement for promotion to higher leagues.

  5. Elburton VIlla 0 Plymouth Parkway 2 (Krac 64, 82) Parkway, backed by a large contingent of the Bolitho faithful in a crowd of 95, made their shortest away trip of the season in the quarter final of the Devon St Lukes Bowl of which they are the current holders. It had been a while since Parkway visited their old rivals who now play at a step below them in the SWPL Premier Division. With the central defensive pair of Rob Farkins and Nick Milton unavailable, 4 changes were made from the previous game including Aaron Bentley and Ryan Lane making welcome returns from injury lay offs. With persistent rain sweeping across the pitch there was nothing much between the teams in the early exchanges as both came to terms with the testing conditions. Chances were few and far between with Elburton seeing a long range effort go over on 7 minutes. Parkway struggled to get into the game in a congested midfield with Elburton proving to be well organised, committed and clearly up for the game. The first clear chance fell to Parkway on 17 minutes when a cross from Tiegan Rosanquest from the left was cleared off the line with the rebound falling to Adam Carter who blasted a close range shot high into the night sky landing closer to the clubhouse than the goal! Play continued to flow from end to end with Elburton more than holding their own and looking dangerous on the break down both flanks. Rosanquest then shot over on 22 minutes followed by a period of Elburton pressure ending with a shot zipping just wide. Both sides continued to try and move the ball around on the slippery surface which, considering the recent and continuing rain was holding up well but defences were generally on top with both sides being restricted to long range efforts and neither keeper being unduly tested. Parkway forced a series of corners which were comfortably defended with, on 36 minutes, Shane Krac seeing his free kick from 25 yards being blocked. With neither side able to make the breakthrough and Elburton giving a good account of themselves, the half ended all square which reflected the evenness of the game. Parkway almost took the lead on 47 minutes when a fine passage of play down the left saw a cross from Lane find Carter unmarked at the far post only to see his downward header from close range bounce up into the hands of Jack Dixon in the Elburton goal. Play immediately switched with a Jake Miller shot being well saved by Kyle Moore. Elburton were now looking the better side and with the impressive Miller prompting and probing from midfield, should have taken the lead on 50 minutes. A mistake on the Parkway left saw an Elburton player go clear only to see his angled shot pulled wide of the far post. A let off for Parkway who were then reduced to ten men on 54 minutes. Lane, having picked up a foolish yellow card in the first half, received his second yellow for a rash, unnecessary challenge. Parkway were forced to ring the changes with Jordan Annear and Less Afful replacing Stewart Yetton and Rosanquest respectively and going to 3 at the back. Elburton continued to press, forcing Parkway to defend in numbers with Krac and the ever industrious Christian Pople working hard in midfield to stem the Elburton attacks. The deadlock was finally broken on 64 minutes with Parkway taking the lead. A neat interchange of passes between Carter and Annear saw the latter fouled some 30 yards out with Krac firing the resultant free kick over the wall and the despairing Dixon high into the net. Elburton bounced back continuing to create problems on the flanks and had a close range effort hacked off the line by Sam Hillson on 71 minutes. Annear was then put clear one and one with the keeper with Dixon doing well to smother the ball just inside the box. Jack Rhead replaced Carter on 78 minutes to bolster the midfield in another formation change as Elburton threw more men forward. The change paid off as Parkway doubled their lead on 82 minutes. A sweeping move from left to right saw Rhead receive the ball wide on the right and showing excellent control and vision, lay the ball back to Krac who, on the run, clipped a superb angled shot into the top corner giving Dixon no chance. Elburton continued to push hard but found the Parkway defence, with Bentley in particular outstanding, in no mood to concede and happy to see the game out to the end. Another hard earned victory for Parkway with Elburton contributing fully to an absorbing game and with a bit more quality up front may well have taken the tie to penalties. Weather permitting, Parkway return to league action at Bolitho Park on Saturday with 4th placed Bitton the visitors. With their scheduled opponents Cadbury Heath engaged in FA Vase action and keen to avoid two successive blank Saturday's and potential end of season fixture pile up, the club hastily rearranged the fixture, bringing it forward from mid March.

  14. FT: Brislington 2 (Buck 26, 33) Plymouth Parkway 3 (Annear 12, Carter 49, Farkins 63) Parkway met Brislington for the third time this season having beaten them 5-1 at home in the FA Vase in September but losing the earlier league encounter 2-3 by a last minute own goal. Parkway made one change from last Saturday's victory at Bridport with Sam Hillson replacing the unavailable Shane Krac in midfield. Playing down the slope with a strong wind behind them, Parkway applied early pressure with Les Afful seeing his shot saved on 4 minutes. Brislington forced a couple of early corners which were comfortably defended but it was Parkway who took the lead on 12 minutes. From a long ball, Jordan Annear bravely won a header and reacted instantly to his own flick on by racing forward and, showing good control and composure, hammering home a rising shot into the top corner from just inside the box. A quality goal. The game developed into a competitive affair with the blustery conditions precluding too much quality play but it was Parkway, with Annear and Adam Carter, supported from midfield, combining well up front looking the more dangerous. A teasing cross from the right from Annear on 15 minutes just evaded the onrushing Carter. Brislington started to look dangerous down their left with Ricky Chandler and Connor Biggins prominent and linking well. Parkway had a let off on 17 minutes with Clarke Taylor picking up a loose clearance and firing just wide as Brislington came more into the game. As play swung from end to end Parkway had the next chance with Carter and Mikey Williams linking well on the right allowing Williams to cut inside and curl a good effort on target which was well saved by Chris Humphries. Both sides were guilty of overhitting too many long balls into the channels which were generally easily dealt with by both defences. On 26 minutes one such long ball was not dealt with and hesitant Parkway defending allowed Oaklan Buck to pounce on a loose, bouncing ball and prod a close range effort past Kyle Moore. Parkway almost retook the lead immediately with Annear cleverly setting Carter free only for Humphries to race from his goal and reach the ball just ahead of Carter on the edge of the box. The resulting collision required lengthy treatment for the keeper. With Parkway losing their early dominance in midfield and unable to retain possession, Brislington took the lead on 33 minutes. More good play down their left between Chandler and Biggins ended with a deep cross to the far post where the alert, unchallenged Buck nodded home. Brislington continued to threaten and almost increased their lead on 40 minutes with Biggins firing just wide. The half ended with Hillson having a speculative shot from around 40 yards comfortably saved as Parkway's early promise had faded with Brislington coming more into the game for the last 20 minutes of the half. Parkway started the second half in the ascendancy playing at a higher tempo and deservedly equalised on 49 minutes. Carter, showing admirable strength and persistence, won the ball some 30 yards out, shrugged off a couple of challenges, powered forward, rounded the keeper and finished calmly. A deserved reward for his hard working performance throughout the game so far. Parkway now looking much the sharper, created further chances with Affull having a shot blocked on 56 minutes and Tiegan Rosanquest firing narrowly over on 59. Mike Smith, returning after a 3 game suspension, replaced Affull on the hour with Williams moving to the left of midfield and Smith on the right. Smith immediately got into the game seeing his shot blocked as Parkway increased the pressure. They duly retook the lead on 63 minutes. A corner on the left was only partially cleared to Christian Pople whose intelligent ball found Jordan Trott wide on the left. Trott crossed deep to the far post with central defender Rob Farkins rising above everyone to thump a header home in his customary manner. Farkins almost repeated the dose a couple of minutes later with another header going narrowly over after good work by Smith. Reuben Kane replaced the quietly efficient Rosanquest on 74 minutes with Hillson dropping to right back and Kane slotting into central midfield. Brendan Abood was replaced by James Peart on 76 minutes as Brislington went searching for the equaliser however it was Parkway who almost increased their lead when a fierce shot from Kane was blocked after more good work by Smith. Always vulnerable with just a single goal lead, Parkway now had to display their defensive qualities as Brislington had a period in control and a powerful strike from Biggins was superbly and bravely blocked by Nick Milton around 12 yards out. On 80 minutes Stewart Yetton replaced Carter who had caused Brislington problems throughout and whose partnership with recent signing and strike partner Annear has shown early encouraging signs. Jimmy Woolland replaced Jayden Neilsen for Brislington shortly after. Parkway continued to work hard to maintain their lead but were dealt a blow on 86 minutes when they were reduced to 10 men. Smith, who had impressed since coming on, was clearly tripped just inside the Brislington half but sadly his reaction and a moment of petulance resulted in the referee consulting his assistant and subsequently showing him a straight red card. Unfortunately as this was his first game back after a 3 game ban for a previous straight red, a further increased suspension looks likely. Brislington replaced Biggins with George Saunders for the last few minutes but Parkway remained strong and saw out the game to gain yet another hard earned 3 points which sees them climb a place to 5th, ahead of Clevedon on goal difference, still with games in hand over most teams around them. Yet another win based on hard work, graft and resolve which is becoming increasingly obvious is the requirement in this league with manager Lee Hobbs no doubt heading off into the Bristol night for his birthday bash in good spirits! The M5 beckons again on Tuesday as Parkway head for 6th placed Division 1 side Wells City in the 2nd round of the Les Phillips League Cup. Next Saturday sees the visit of mid table Hallen to Bolitho Park, the first home game since the start of the build of the exciting new clubhouse project. Short term pain for long term gain.
