  1. Thanks Paul, passed on the phone number to the person asking. Keep safe .😷
  2. Paul. Can you help me out, I need to make contact with Colin Burrell your Duchy Chairman, someone wanting info on an old Delabole player. Dave Bray / CCFA.
  3. Just two unknowns to recognise, the player back row far right, and the player second in from the left front row. Thanks to former squad players Matt Eccleston & Steve Waters plus Mike Young / Penryn FC for all their help.
  4. Found this squad photo, taken roundabout 1990. Unfortunately I don't have the names to go with the photo, maybe someone has saved the match day programme for their scrapbook. Anyone recognise himself or any of the others, if so let me know via davebrayer06@gmail.com. And Dan I unfortunately don't have any more photos that I can find at present, what happened to the Phil Smith Memorial Trophy ?, we should revise a match once we get back to playing again, keep in touch.
  5. Dan, remember the coach trips when you and the late great Phil Smith were the 'fines committee' a nightmare you two were, Anyhow found this picture of the 1999 squad at Melksham before winning the SWC KO Cup against Somerset, you bottom right next to Hudds.
  6. In the summer of 1994 Cornwall Youth Under 18's returned to the South West County Championship after an 8 year absence, and under the management lead by Kevin Rowett they returned in style, winning the title on a hot May afternoon at Alton FC defeating the hosts Hampshire County FA by 3 goals to 1. They also narrowly missed out on a place in the final of the FA County Youth Cup losing a Semi Final replay ( in those days ) to Liverpool CFA.
  7. Season 1998 / 1999. South West Counties Champions. Play off Final at Falmouth Town FC. Cornwall 1 - 0 Gwent. An Extra Time goal from Ryan Trudgeon secured the 2nd Championship title for Cornwall. Technical difficulties re team sheet inclusion, getting it sorted hopefully.
  8. James Ross replaced Tommy Matthew's as the County Under 18's Team Manager, 'Rossie' had previously captained the side in 1994 when they won the SWC Championship for the first time, more about that to follow. Success in April 2014 when the side won the SWC Knockout Cup for th second time. A 2 - 0 victory over Oxfordshire with goals from Alex Coles and Jordan Annear. Glynn Hooper took over from James Ross in 2016 and guided the couny side to its first ever appearance in the FA County Youth Cup Final a year later. The County Youth Committee was absorbed by the Competitions Committee that same season and the reins of organising representative county fixtures were in the safe hands of Richard Pallott, my 30 years had come to an end. Between 1994 and 1999 two Championship titles came our way, I will give these a mention.
  9. Season 2012 / 2013. South West Counties Youth Championship. Cornwall v Somerset at Penlee Park, Penzance. Saturday 9th March 2013. Tommy's last game in charge, under his tenureship the County won two S.W. Championships and were runners up on one occasion, a true gentleman both on and off the field of play, it was a privilege to work alongside of him. Match result a 2 - 0 win for the Cornwall lads.
  10. Few Counties have retained the South West County Championship from the previous season, however in May 2010 Cornwall joined that elete group of achievers by defeating Gloucestershire CFA by 4 goals to nil. The venue Bitton FC on the outskirts of Bristol. That season the side also reached the Quarter FInals of the FACYC, losing away to Liverpool CFA. Once again a very talented squad who did their county proud.
  11. Season 2008/09. Cornwall South West County Youth Champions for the third time. Result: Cornwall 3 Oxfordshire 0. A very solid squad, blessed with talented strikers, lead by the prolific Liam Eddy. Goalscorers that day, well if my memory serves me correctly Liam got all three. Again their only defeat of the season came in the FACYC, early in the season to visiting Worcestershire at Saltash. One away victory stood out that season and that was a 4-1 away win at Chippenham against a strong Wiltshire side who on the day really fancied their chances, but came unstuck against this outstanding squad of players.
  12. FA County Youth Cup Round 1. Saturday 6 October 2007. Jersey 3 Cornwall 2. ( Dingle & Eddy. ). Narrow defeat for the Cornish lads who lead 2 - 1 at half time, but a strong second half performance saw the hosts through to round two.
  13. They were indeed Tommy, and on the horizon two seasons of unparalleled success, next up a squad trip to Jersey.
  14. Back to County Youth business. We move forward to the Spring of 2007. The Play Off Final of the SWC Championship. Cornwall v Hampshire at St.Blazey, 5th May 2007. Not to be this time around, Cornwall on the day beaten by a better side. I don't have the score to hand but definitely a two goal margin . But a good Cornwall side never the less whose only defeat in the Championship was this final tie,
