    All too often clubs receive criticism on here for the way their players and managers act... I thought both clubs were superb on Wednesday. I'm not too keen on commenting on games I've reffed but I feel it's only fair that the club's that act impeccably get the recognition that they deserve.

    Helston 2 - 2 Perranwell
    Not the best of games however the Perranwell goals where both beauties, especially the first, a first time half volley on the run from the corner of the box following a clearance from a corner that when hit, went 100mph into the top corner - unstoppable.  Second one was similar with a powerful rising drive from the edge of the box on the run that also went, sort of top bins as well.
    Helston spent a lot of time in the Perranwell half through out the game but simply couldn't break down a stubborn defence that sat incredibly deep, playing almost a back 5 and trying to hit Helston on the break and forcing Helston into wasteful shots from distance.  2nd Half, on comes Jackson Rapsey and now Perranwell had an outlet and started to find a way up the pitch, eventually leading to their goals.  15 to go and 2 nill down, Helston kicked on a couple of gears and finally began to pin Perranwell back even further and found space down the sides at last which eventually led to forcing two scrappy goals in the last 10 to earn their point.
    A point a piece, a fair reflection of the game.
    Well officiated by Dave Bartlam, spoke to the players well and controlled the game as expected, 10/10 from me.

    CARHARRACK   (2)  2
    DROPSHIP  (2)  2
    ATT: 38
    TEMP: 21c  sunny,hot
    REF: Max Davies - good to see ex players refereeing! Max probably better known as a goalscorer for St.Ives! Missed a few things understandably I thought but did a decent job overall in a game between two committed teams, Marc Rose there assessing said he thought he did quite well after the game, and he knows more about it than me!!  👏🏼👍⚫️
     
    Decent game of football on a pretty hot day for the players! Almost worth the 1 hour 40 minutes it took in the hideous traffic from Charlestown to Carharrack! Dropship taking an early lead before Carharrack battled back really well to go 2-1 up with Bobbie Staton scoring a beauty 25 yarder top corner to go ahead. Liam Chinn equalising for the visitors just before the break. Sorry don’t know all the names, not watched too much Trelawny league footie over the last few years if I’m honest! Good to see Tom Trust there watching his beloved Carharrack, you missed a better game in midweek to be fair Tom!! 😂👍⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️  Pete Norfolk still full of energy for Dropship and Rikki Smith who made a great save with his foot from Ben Rapsey with 10 minutes to go after a powerful strike from a narrow angle. Staton with a couple of late half chances over the bar and Dropship also threatening right up to the final whistle! Draw probably a fair result over the 90 minutes between two sides that should be in for good seasons judging by what I saw. Not that I’m an expert on Trelawny div 3 but both teams look pretty strong I thought with plenty of good players on the pitch 👍⚽️👏🏼

    Well said sir, sounds like an honest opinion.
    There are a lot of poor losers about sadly. Mr Kane is a top referee in my book.

    What's the point? Many on here are not conversant with the Laws Of The Game. Many have no knowledge or experience of taking charge of a match. Many find it much easier to criticise.
    Trying to explain a decision on a Matchday in relation to the law is hard enough, imagine trying to do that to a bunch of keyboard warriors?
    Has no-one noticed the sheer decline of referees that come on here and comment these days? 
    In another thread from yesterday, you've got one of the finest referees that you'll see operating on the SWPL being lambasted and ridiculed for decisions which are based on opinion! 
    If referees could come on here and give their interpretation and view on match incidents and actually defend themselves when the criticism is completely unwarranted, there would be alot of referees missing games due to reprimand.
    Another thing to consider is the number of referees in Cornwall. Next week alone, there are more than 28 games without a referee! Twenty eight! It's getting worse. More are dropping out and people on here wonder why!
    Read through a few of these ludicrous threads and then visit a ground and listen to what officials are subjected to - you'll get a small insight as to why Cornwall and the Country as a whole is in desperate need for officials. We are losing more than we are gaining and something must give sooner or later!

    A few seasons back I watched Okehampton Argyle play Axminster I think it was. Stuart Kane laid down the ground rules right at the start and said he would stand no nonsense ( at Okehampton you can plainly hear what the ref says). Just after the second half began Mr Kane warned two Okehampton players for foul language. Seconds later he booked those players for continued bad language. Within five minutes he blew his whistle and red carded both Okehampton players. After that no body swore again. He reffed the game well and at the end I called to him and told him so and he thanked me. 
    Again I say, in my opinion Stuart Kane is certainly a top Referee.

    The problem is you bring in a manager that had issues at his previous club with discipline he practically binned off the entire previous squad  
    the players he connected too are all going to join him and most are Sunday league standard and play in an aggressive Manner . They have no connection locally to callington so why would they get to a ground early to help prepare a pitch 
    it happened last season at St Blazey every other week it was the refs fault. Never the players

    I thought the referee had a good game in very trying circumstances .Callington were simply outclassed in all departments and left chasing shadows for most of the game . After the 1rst 2 goals went in you could see the frustration was mounting on callingtons part and the " Stop em by any means ! " mentality kicked in . Mr Kane had no choice but to apply the laws of the game ,otherwise someone was going to get injured .
    Don't know what was said in the callington dressing room at half time ,but it certainly wasn't keep your heads we can't afford to lose anybody on the pitch .First of all the captain walked for a second offence ,then the player he handed the armband to went the same way minutes later .Hardly leadership qualities when the chips are down . 
    Whilst I was walking out of the ground a member of the callington coaching staff was effing and Jeffing at the ref as he was walking off the pitch accusing him of small man syndrome ,this in earshot of a couple of youngsters .Again a pretty poor example to set .
    Talking to one of their supporters there's a small core of volunteers at callington ,who are lovely people but need more help .I think they have enough to deal with without worrying about the on field antics .Hopefully the players will take it upon themselves to pay their own fines and not let the club incur it .

    Greygen - you were at the match, so I totally respect your opinion. I would just add a couple of points - Stuart Kane is usually an outstanding Ref and I have seen him take loads of abuse (and more) at matches and not known him to over react. 
     
    Second thing is this Callington team is virtually last years St Blazey team, lest we forget their antics on and off the pitch and discipline record for abuse and reckless tackles. I know they should be judged on actual events but sometimes players don’t help themselves.
