  1. Illogan 2-6 Gwin First half was a poor display from my boys. Conceding a decent finish early on. We then went on to win a penalty that Billy Foster had saved again 👀 2 in 2 saves for my star man 😂🙄 but we then went into win another penalty that Ash Mellows slowed in. In the melee of the penalty win Illogan had a player sent off for dissent I think which didn’t help their cause. Then was followed by my counterpart Alan Williams being sent off as well. We then conceded a penalty ourselves which looked harsh but ex gwin reject Corri Braymer had his penalty superbly saved by Ashleyjade Dunn. H-T 1-1 Was a bit of a hairdryer for the boys at half time as I think we fell into their trap of panicking and rushing out football. Made a couple changes. Second half was more like it. We played quality one/two touch football and was a joy to watch at time. Mellows went on to score a couple more to make his first hat trick for me and gave his best performance for the gwin. We then conceded a breakaway goal which was annoying as we were playing very well. The goals were rounded off with Derek Pickin netting 2 and Luke Barber with an absolute screamer from 2 yards. Second half performance made up for the first and was enjoyable to watch. Good performance. Leads us into junior cup action next week, where I want to replicate another cup run like last season. Man of matches- Ash Mellows & Ashley Dunn **** of day - Billy Foster 🙈😂
  2. Gwin 3-0 Mawnan Professional performance from my lads today. Dominated from start to finish. Very happy gaffer. Goals from Jordan Brown with a well worked goal assisted by Billy Foster. Our second coming through Josh Bevis. And the third coming from Luke Barber with a great header. Also having a saved penalty from the usual clinical Foster. Exceptional game management from us and won the match with a clean sheet to top it off, whereas last season we’d have struggled to see the match off. 16 players today with 4 more to return from injuries so a quality squad and a lot of competition for places which I’ve wanted since I’ve been here. Only dampener was having our skipper Gavin Russell being sent off from an awful decision from the referee mishearing the captain after being fouled and asking ‘what if he broke my legs’ and the ref thinking he heard Gav saying he was gunna break the oppositions players legs. Ruined a perfect day. Shocking. Move on to high flying Fourlanes at home next week and a team night out on the beers. Man of match: Luke Barber, perfect performance from my centre half. **** of Day: Charlie Shears. Missing from a yard 😂 ⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️
  3. Gwin 2-2 West Cornwall Absolute quality game of footy to be apart off today. Think the result was a fair reflection of the match; even though i thought we were gunna nick it in the end. Went 1-0 up through a great finish from Josh Bevis after some hard work from Ash Mellows. West Cornwall are a very good footballing side and had the lion share of the ball in the first half but didn’t really trouble stand in keeper Jamie Cotterill apart from one or 2 saves. HT 1-0. Second half West scored 2 quick fire goals through no mistakes from us but were just decent well worked goals. After they went ahead he turned it on and dominated the game. Quite a few chances for us but couldn’t capitalise. After a lot of huffing and puffing our new signing Zach Thomas scored with a decent finish after some pinball in their area. We nearly nicked it in the end with Billy Foster centimetres away from a last minute finish. Was a cracking game for the neutral. Big tackles, good football and quality goals. Happy with the result against a team that will be up the top this year, Besty has a very well drilled footballing side and will win most matches this year. Considering we had so many players out today and only had 12 available with Charlie Eddy kitted up even though he was injured I’m very happy with the result! The boys dug in deep. MOM Zach Thomas. Quality debut at right back and a goal to top it off. Very happy to get him signed on for the season, will be a top signing. Move on to Mawnan at home next week. ⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️
  4. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 And what amazing side are you a part of then
  5. The leagues aren’t embarrassing at all. Ruan have created a quality side the last couple years and walked div 2 last year and everybody said they’re easily a senior side. They’ve stepped up to combo this year cause of all the league shenanigans and why would you blame them trying to better themselves? And by the looks of it they’ve made the right decision. Carharrack were in the shit last season and have been saved by the new gaffers and have probably sorted a decent side worthy of playing combo. Instead of trying to insult the standard of the leagues maybe give it a few weeks and see what happens. Best of luck to Ruan who are trying to turn a village side into a top team and to Carharrack who have turned it around to compete this season. Your opinion is pure stupidity. All the best, Danny Richards Gwinear Churchtown manager 👍🏼
  6. Gwinear 7-1 Falmouth 3rds. Wasn’t at last weeks game so couldn’t do a report. But being there today was brilliant to see. Dominated all game. And it showed. Goals from josh Bevis with a hat trick, Billy Foster with a hat trick and Ash Mellows rounded up the scoring. Some of the best footy I’ve seen at the gwin and was a pleasure. If it was 9/10 it couldn’t have been argued. Move on to ludgvan at home Tuesday. Man of the match Josh Bevis. **** of the day Jordan Brown, has cramp 😂😂😂
