  1. Just a shameless plug for our new website: https://www.wendronunitedafc.co.uk/default.aspx That’s all! Hope everyone is safe and well
  2. A shout out to our first team manager, Jack Greenwood. His third season in managing our firsts and only turned 30 last month.
  3. Wendron United have hosted their End of Season Awards online this season due to the COVID-19 outbreak. You can view it here: I hope all are safe and well
  4. Wendron Res v Mullion GAME ON... all be it on the back pitch
  5. Agreed, every youth player (and I believe every men’s player) should aim to play as high as possible at some point in their career, however how it was phrased - or read by myself perhaps - implied this was a message been sent out to players whereas the progression to men’s football and continuous progression is one that should be encouraged. Apologies if read wrong.
  6. This whole thing is ridiculous. It is a complete accumulation of things that contribute to the lack of players and teams folding. Firstly, we act like the fact teams fold is something completely new. It has happened since the introduction of football and is because of things such as finances, lack of infrastructure, poor management at various tiers, lack of youth, managers promising 16 year olds the world, money or incentives being thrown at teenagers even in Cornwall (I wonder what will happen to those youth players at Helston who have been promised or given incentives when they just don’t quite cut it and have to look for a new club - are they going to expect the same elsewhere? Not a knock at Helston as fully respect what they’re trying to achieve) etc etc. To pin point youth isn’t fair or correct. Without parents we would have no youth football or avenues into men’s football. I completely disagree with St Darren’s comments regarding the youth not being the future of a club, without our youth section we would have no club. CRD, you’ve given a prime example of the youth having over inflated egos - you commented that your players are/will be better than St Piran standard (or words to that affect). Let’s remember that this is now effectively the second highest tier in Cornwall. Furthermore, the team you are associated with have a team at that standard, so it’s hardly promoting progression from within the club. Anyway, to conclude my rant and 2p’s worth - I think you’re all right in what you’re saying...but all completely wrong too. And just for the record, Wendron’s reserve team fielded a team consisting of 9 former Wendron youth players in the starting 11 today, 11 in the squad of 15 plus a former youth player as manager, and a former youth manager as assistant manager. It is such a shame Ludgvan have struggled over the past couple of years and it has accumulated in this. In my opinion, it’s the fact that they gathered a squad reliant on 3-4 top players, and when they went elsewhere it left them in a mess. I wish them all the best.
  7. I know of places it happens. Real shame for Redruth though, difficult time of year and hope they pull through.
  8. Beat me to it. Unfortunately the horse’s hoof has sunk into the turf, ruling the game off. If anyone would like to come and take some pictures then feel free.
  9. Get your midweek football fix with Wendron United and the horse in the next field
  10. Great pictures. Do you mind if we use the pictures for our programme? If you had stepped foot on it then you’d know it wasn’t playable, as was your pitch which was also called off today. You can tell from the photo that the pitch is sodden. Next time you come up, would you mind refraining from swearing at someone with their son who has nothing to do with it.
  11. Credit to Perranporth for offering to host our fixture yesterday and for a playing surface that was brilliant considering the recent weather.
  12. Did he miss it then claim he did it on purpose?😉 Great sportsmanship Simon, credit to you. And fair play to the lad who picked the ball up following what he thought was a nasty head injury. Could’ve worked against him but good to hear of stories like that.
  13. Ben was at the meeting where they were given out.
