  1. Exmouth must be quietly celebrating tonight. Wouldn't say the league is over but hard to see Exmouth slipping up from here on in. Henderson looked a worried man after the game.
  2. Watched a very solid performance from Tavistock with a win that kept the title push going. The first half was all Tavistock and they played some very neat football in appalling conditions that the young Callington Team struggled to cope with for the majority of the 45 minutes. Josh Grant hitting a first half hatrick and at times, he was unplayable. The second half was slightly more balanced half with Callington playing some better football but Tavistock finished the scoring off in 77 minute thanks to Liam Pryne effort. Credit to both teams who always looked to play football in tricky conditions but Tavistock by the far the superior and deserved the 3 points.
  3. See Tavistock fielded 6 first team players in their reserve side and could only muster a 3-0 win. Where has all their normal players gone or were they left out to accommodate 1st team players??
  4. Very impressed with the lads performance. Had everything on this showing. Hope he can deliver it on a weekly basis.
  5. Another entertaining game @ Callington yesterday. Both teams started well but it was Helston who took the lead on 13 minutes when a shot from 18 yards was well saved only for the Helston winger to react quickest and tap home from 5 yards. Callington then fell apart in the space of 7 minutes although were dealt some bad luck as the referee for both the 2nd and 3rd goal seemed to miss two blatant fouls from which the resulting free-kicks both ended up assisting both goals. Helston then owe huge thanks to their GK who made two very smart saves (the 2nd save was something special to say the least) but he could do nothing about the Calllington goal, albeit in different circumstances as the ball flew in to the top left corner direct from a corner just before the half hour mark. The second half was again an even encounter with both teams trying to play football on a difficult surface. Helston then put the game to bed on 75 minutes when the Helston number 9 heading home in spectacular fashion from a free-kick. On another day the game could have finished 6-6 but credit to Helston whose took their chances when it mattered. MOM was in no doubt the Helston number 9 whose height, build and pace was hard to handle for any CB and he was a menace from start to finish.
  6. I will do Rob Brown. If your team is correct then fair play to you and your club, good result against a good side and I’ll stand corrected. Was told that Luke Cloke, Gary Hird and one of the Heverans played. Good luck in the title race, looking like it could be interesting at the end.
  7. Hearing Launceston have parted company with their Manager?? Is this true and any ideas who is taking over??
  8. Polperro a good side so it was clearly needed in order to get the 3 points so fair play I suppose.
  9. Enjoyed the game at Southern Road yesterday and after the 90 minutes were up, was nice to see Town sitting on top of the league. They didn’t have it all their own way though as Callington played by far the better football in the first 20-25 minutes knocking the ball around neatly causing Exmouth problems. It was Exmouth however who opened the scoring first, although it came In a dubious manner as had the officials done their jobs properly (referee and both linesman were very poor all game) the goal probably wouldn’t have stood due to a clear offside but credit to Exmouth who played to the whistle and subsequently scored much to the anger of the Callington players and Management team. This seem to knock Callington for six and Exmouth scored two further goals in the space of 6 minutes from set piece situations thanks to not only great deliveries from Ben Steer but also finished well with two powerful headers from Ace High giving the Callington GK no chance which effectively put the game to bed to go 3-0 up. Callington though to their credit didn’t give up and again played some decent football in the second half with Exmouth just really going through the motions and only registered 1 shot in the half. Callingtons luck was summed up on 71 minutes when they awarded a penalty which subsequently hit the post. My man of the match was Ben Steer whose delivery all day from wide positions was always on the money.
  10. Good result for Torpoint against a decent Polperro side. Polperro just unlucky that Torpoint 1st team played on Friday otherwise it might have been a different game/result.
  11. It would only involve the Managers picking their mates anyway so would be a waste of time. Any kind of game of game like this (rep games was always the same), the manager either picked their mates or the players of the club they were connected to at the time.
  12. Teams like Polperro, Torpoint Res, Liskeard Res & Saltash Res will struggle massively in this new league, not necessarily on quality but for consistency. Only so many times players will want to travel to the bottom end of Cornwall for nothing and looking at the makeup of teams that could be in the league, those journeys will nearly be every other week.
  13. Judging players has nothing to do with, the money in the pocket has everything to do with it. Both Managers have only won leagues when they have had the biggest budget. Their passion cannot be questioned at all and both know the game well but get them to go and manage in the league below with no money and see what success they get and how many so called big name players follow them.
