  1. You are correct Dave, the youth club is not a “section” of st Blazey FC. They are AFC St Blazey Youth, a completely separate entity. Different club, different committee, different everything!
  2. please note I was not at the game, and have not spoken to anyone involved in the game. I am posing this from watching a video, with 1 angle from 50/60 metres away! Definition of Serious foul play A tackle or challenge that endangers the safety of an opponent or uses excessive force or brutality must be sanctioned as serious foul play Picture these two descriptions of watching the video. I’m sure any defending team with 2 players down would be insisting there was a push/shove. 1- defender and attacker running after the long ball. Gk comes to collect the ball
  3. Paul does a great job as groundsman, many hours spent at the club so 2 teams can rock up and kick a ball about for 90 minutes and go home again, but floodlight repairs are a specialist job, which is not going to be cheap, and I’m guessing not overly easy to arrange in the midst of a global pandemic, when people are still furloughed. credit to Paul/St Blazey for trying to arrange a temporary solution to the floodlights, just a pity it didn’t provide enough light. The old adage of no ref = no game isn’t strictly true, as we’ve seen many times down here. Hats off to all the ground
  4. Could it be that the ECPL volunteers are at work on a Friday afternoon?
  5. You are offside when the ball is played. NOT received. player B was never offside it was player A. The media assumed it was player B, as they are lazy, and don’t understand the laws of the game. Player A’s foot was offside when player B played the ball backwards.
  6. Sorry I dont know the wolves players so shall refer to them by A - the corner taker B - recipient of corner C- goal scorer phase 1- Player A takes the corner, playing it to player B phase 2 - player B plays the ball backwards, and player A retrieves ball, having come back from the goal-line phase 3 - player A swings ball into box and player C heads it into the net. Phase 1 - no offside as you cannot be offside from a corner phase 3 - no offside as player C is in an onside position from the cross however - PHASE 2 - is OFFSIDE,
  7. Problem is who can fund the £300,000-£500,000 per 3G pitch. The new ones are fantastic, with very little to do every week (lines remain clear, and obviously doesn’t need cutting) but every 5-10 years need to be properly maintained and pass grade inspections.
  8. You could leave it to the match referee to decide when they get there, and can be postponed at any time up to kickoff, or abandoned at any time after kickoff. to save everyone travelling if the pitch is obviously waterlogged/dangerous, look where everyone has to travel from and allow a pitch inspection And phone calls to be concluded before everyone would leave.
  9. fortunately the words SEEKING TO GAIN AN ADVANTAGE were removed many years ago, I would say at least 10. VAR is used to check any goal for a possible offside infringement - offside is a non subjective decision - it is onside or offside, so they use the freeze frame to work out when the ball is played. Things like red card offences and penalties etc are the ones that need to meet the CLEAR AND OBVIOUS ERROR as they are subjective decisions. And yes any part of the body that can legally play the ball are used to judge offside. This means in real terms - any part of the att
  10. Just like every other restart of play, for several years now, the ball is in play as soon as it is played and obviously moves. The moves its circumference was removed years ago
  11. Hi Coady, defensive players can be anywhere they like, attacking players MUST be outside of the penalty area until the ball is played by whoever is taking the goal kick. As soon as the ball obviously moves it is in play, and can be played by anyone before leaving the penalty area If an attacker is in the penalty area, because a quick goal kick is taken, or they enter before the kick is taken they are not permitted to play the ball, or challenge a defender in the area. If this happens the goal kick is retaken. If they do not get involved, you can play on Hope this
  12. Do the Onesport balls have any of those logos? The one i saw certainly did not. The ball listed as £25 each on the website, says exceeds FIFA standards, but doesn't have logos on them as this would make the balls more expensive When I messaged Onesport, they said even the £90 SWPL Xcite ball exceeds the standards but does not have the logo.
  13. Their official name was Launceston College Phoenix, with it abbreviated to LC Phoenix. according to old newspaper reports. It changed to this when they moved to play at Launceston College when they entered Saturday football with the Duchy League, as their old ground was unsuitable for saturday league matches.
  14. Not sure on the others, but L C Phoenix, i was told, stood for Launceston College Phoenix
