    Cornwall Sunday league!

    I understand following my discussions with Phil Cardew (earlier) that there is really positive news regarding the immediate future of the Cornwall Sunday League. An official statement will be published soon.

    Cornwall Sunday league!

    You may well read during the day some positive news for the season ahead. The reason that the league has not got going is quite simple, up until last night's meeting there has been no one willing to step forward and take on the responsibility of becoming the League's Chairman, Secretaty or Treasurer.
  3. 'Town' should get a 300+ gate. Top three attendances in Peninsula Prem so far this season. 308 AFC St.Austell v Plymouth Argyle 278 AFC St.Austell v Falmouth Town. 260 AFC St.Austell v Helston Athletic.

    Let's all wait until next week's meeting. Could be some surprising developments.

    Dave, quite correct, Fal 99 needs to very carefully read my earlier correspondence. I repeat, 'The Staff at the County H/Q will not be responsible for the day to day administration of the Cornwall Sunday League'. However will support with help and guidance anyone who volunteers to take on the positions of Officers of the League.
  6. A meeting to discuss the future of the league will be held next Wednesday ( 19th ) at the Dracaena Centre, Falmouth - commencing at 7.00pm. Representatives from Cornwall FA will be in attendance along side persons from the clubs already signed up to compete. New clubs are invited, more importantly if the league is to proceed this season it will need persons to take up leading rolls such as for starters a Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer. So if you are keen to take on any of these positions your presence is vital at this meeting. The CCFA will always be on hand to give professional advice but will not run the league on a day to day basis. For more information, ring Phil Cardew at the County Office, 01208 269010.

    DUCHY LEAGUE - Saturday Sept 1 2018

    Good to see Nanpean Rovers back in business. No doubt Head Groundsman Terry Richards will have the playing surface at Victoria Bottoms in pristine condition.⚽
  10. Poltair last evening. Highly entertaining set-to between two teams who will be there and about when the medals are shared out. A tad feisty at times but it calmed down somewhat in the second half. And a mention for Rob Brown in the Torpoint goal. Cornwall Youth 'keeper a few years ago now, kept his side in the game with a series of fine saves.

    Roger Caddy ( Nanpean Rovers ).

    Just had a message that Roger Caddy has passed away. Roger played for Nanpean Rovers in the mid to late sixties, hard tackling full back and could kick the heavy leather ball from one end of Victoria Bottoms to the other. Played Cricket also for St.Austell, again he could throw from the outfield as fast and accurate as anyone in the County. Enjoyed his pint and cards at 'The Grenville' and many many other watering holes, a real character, will be sadly missed but always remembered. Lived most of his life in Bodmin which others may like to expand on. RIP.
  13. I know that Kevin Marriott has retired and i am sure Rhod Mitchell also. They both had what's going on in the football community at their finger tips. Not the same now. Times have changed, the Internet in all its expanding formats has taken over. You can send in all the information at your disposal but it may well not get printed. As the saying goes, 'you can take a horse to water but you can't make it drink'.
  14. 'Best Memory of Treyew Road. Cornwall Senior Cup Final - Season 1968/1969. Second Replay no less. Porthleven 2 St.Austell 3. Mid Week Crowd 2,000+. ( Has to be said, 'Worse Memory'....Cornwall Junior Cup Final 1978/1979.....Riviera Coasters 1 Pendeen Rovers 5. ).

    Would you have a clue of the Charity Cup Semi Final result of the tie played in April 1973 between Newquay & St.Austell.  The tie was won by Newquay, however the St.Austell President is endeavouring to put the actual score to the result.  I have left a message for Stuart Lenton to ring as he played in the fixture, however i thought i would try you as well.
