  1. Helston 1st team...minted.
  2. Most would probably do the same. Lauded? Not yet surely, win a few things first.
  3. In our club everyone pays! Officers with 50+ service still pay to come into the game, buy their beer and pay the membership. I do the bar and cook the food on a Saturday but still pay to watch the game. Injured players, those with no game also pay to watch the game! The theory being...if I do the gate and I have paid so will you, don't care if your son is playing...you pay! League officers, county officials and referee's, whether they have their free pass or not will not get in without a go at the 50/50 either. I love it....lol
  4. Offside by a toe but two handballs in the box not even reviewed. It's a joke
  5. Yup, I would think that is the case, paying them so use them.
  6. Must have been wet there are no lines on it. Can't mark a wet pitch.
  7. Blue sky, sun shining, wind blowing...pitch soaking...we'll see in a while. OH TO BE IN ENGLAND!
  8. Just had about an inch of rain in the last 15 minutes in the Falmouth area! Eased off now put still steady rain...Oh dear.
  9. It was a poor game for sure, change back to red and black...you'll play better.
  10. All marked in and ready to go, bit soft and the forecast is not good, but we live in hope! Find out in the morning s'pose.
  11. There is an expense when using lights, so if you choose to use them it's normally 3.00 ko. If you don't use them or don't have them then 2.00pm is the solution to dark evenings.
  12. A bit of sense there Al, but when needs must you don't always have a choice. Certainly with the damage from the vase game rolling would be the only solution, but when to roll and what weight to use is a fine line. When I use a heavier roller I would always run a slitter behind it.
  13. I'll be surprised if you play after the damage to the pitch after your last game! Roller stuck out in the middle of the pitch I'm told!
  14. Same as kicking off at 3pm..it's dark before the game finishes...simples
  15. My mother cooked with fag ash all my life...never did me any harm...lol Bake off ..no soggy bottoms here - saggy maybe🤣
  16. There certainly is a difference between the coasts, I've watched it for years, South coast always seems to get more rain or it clears from the north coast a few hours before here. Cancellations are the clue, it clears from down west a few hours before here and they get their games on whilst it can still be raining here, the north coast the same it seems. Obviously with our weather predominantly coming in of the Atlantic we are last to see the weather clear. The pattern of cancellations is the clue, I've seen the whole south coast off while the north coast all play, cant beat the weather as they say and its certainly been wet here, and with the temperatures still around the 10 degrees mark the grass has hardly slowed yet, ground temperature here is still at 9 degrees in November! Forecast says 2 days of heavy - ish rain...I despair!
