  1. Ian I think the modern penchant for good players ( and Jordy is a cracking good player) playing well below the standard they are capable of playing has helped Jordy somewhat. Nanpean regularly have regularly hit double figures in the last couple of seasons ( and they might again in 2 weeks time against Lostwithiel ) has certainly helped JW achieve his incredible record. Rappo however always tested himself a the highest level he could play in his prime and that makes his goal scoring achievements more worthy in my opinion!! Cheers Bill.
  2. Bosty 1 Losty 0 Firstly a big thank you to the 3 officials, my old mate Gary Cornish, Xavier xb1 and the home linesman. We lost experienced defender Josh Cook within 5 minutes and almost immediately gave away a soft penalty, which was scored. Bosty bossed the remainder of the first half but we managed to keep it to 1 though from our only attack the linesman's flag curtailed our delight when we thought we had equalised. The second half again followed a similar pattern and we never really looked like we believed we could score and in the end only some brave and resolute defending by us kept the score at 1-0 when the whistle went. Well done to Bosty and good luck in the next round. A good effort from our boys but we lacked belief and quality today. Cheers Bill
  3. Losty 2 GSM 1 No Ref today until a parent of a player agreed to do it. Thank you Mr Rooney and hopefully bang average players will stop moaning at good Ref's and The Ref will be able to enjoy his Saturday afternoon too. Moan over. We always seem to beat GSM and there is nothing between the 2 sides and often GSM batter us and we still get a result and today followed that pattern a bit. GSM were all over us first half and Ben ? with a cracker put GSM in front. We worked hard but without quite firing and were a little lucky to be only 1 down. The 2nd half was closer and we worked bloody hard but didn't show much quality then with 20 mins left Tom Mileham won a corner which he took quickly and caught everyone out by scoring. This lifted us and 10 mins from time the hard working Nathen Cummings put in a cross that again Tom Mileham got to against the odds to score the winner. Good luck to Andy Matt and all at GSM for the rest of the season. Cheers Bill.
  4. I spent hours sat in Duncan's sports shop, Alpha Sports, when I was in my teens. I played with and against Duncan and shared many a pint and many a story. A truly lovely man. Gentle, kind and one of St Austell's sporting giants and a special human being. Very sad news and mine and my families thoughts go out to all of his family.
  5. Losty 2 St Minver 2 We played our get out of jail free card with 2 goals in injury time after we had been outplayed and outfought for the other 90 minutes. St Minver were better in every facet of play and we were bailed out when young Lewis Baron on as a sub crossed for old James Hutchings also on as a sub to head in after 92 mins and Hutch then returned the favour for Lewis Baron to calmly slot in 60 seconds later. A big thank you to our ref Martin Clemens who got very little wrong and the 2 club linesman who were both very good and very fair. Cheers Bill.
  6. Sad to see no Duchy fixtures or reports for yesterday, so here goes. Losty 3 St Columb 5 Firstly thanks to ref Chris Nicholls who didn't get everything right but then neither did I and without Chris there wouldn't have been a game. A cracking Duchy game with a brilliant atmosphere thanks to the large number of St Columb fans who enjoyed their day and the effort of all involved. Losty took an unexpected lead with a brilliant Liam Rooney effort but after going close on a number of occasions equalised before half time. St Columb dominated for large periods but Losty worked hard and defended bravely until 2 quick goals put St Columb 3-1 up. Losty found some belief and 2 quick goals in reply from Jordan Cummings and Nathan Cummings made it 3-3. St Columb made a couple of changes and in the end class told with 2 late goals and St Columb winning 5-3. An enjoyable game to play in with everyone involved giving their all. The best team won but a depleted Losty showed charachter and determination to push them all the way. Good luck to Kasey and his team who will be challenging on all fronts and I am looking forward to the return. Cheers Bill.
  7. Steve you still move like a 20 year old mate and long may it continue!!! See you next week.
  8. Fair assessment XB1. I always enjoy our battles with GSM over the years and yesterday was a typical full blooded Duchy encounter. GSM had most of the possession and most of the chances but a depleted Losty side stuck together, rode our luck and kept battling to the end. Tom Mileham playing up front on his own scored a fantastic hat-trick and we ended up 4-1 winners. Great victory for us but both sides, both managers and the ever consistent Alan Howells in the middle deserved credit for getting on with the game and battling to the end of a proper game with no ego's on show just a bunch of blokes enjoying their football. It was great to have a chance to yap with Andy after some of the GSM players in the pub. See you all next week for round 2.
  9. I agree and look forward to seeing Ian and Paul on a touchline soon for a chat and a laugh. Two top fellas who have given so much to the game.
  10. Just looking forward to playing again especially at places like Nanpean and St Columb. Great grounds and probably good sides. Good luck to everyone and lets hope we play the whole season.
  11. That is a shame JC but thanks for the update and see you soon matey.
  12. To be fair Paul is usually pretty good at keeping everyone informed. As soon as there is some news it will be shared.
  13. A lot of time consuming work goes into getting your pitch looking like that Mr Colenzo!!
  14. If life gives you Melons you may be Dyslexic!!!!!
