  1. If only you had offered your officiating opinions BEFORE the weekend........ You could have reffed this match, or a different one, as there is a huge deficit of qualified Referees in Cornwall. Please contact CCFA at Callywith Gate and put yourself on the next course at your earliest convenience. May I also refer you to the post by Zebedee at the end of August.
  2. Park near Milbrook Dam and walk to the back entrance from there. Approx 50m.
  3. Very sorry to hear this. Always enjoyed the drive there and a good village hall with bar facilities and the Match Officials always made very welcome.
  4. On the day of the match, if you see anything that concerns you then you must report it to the home team Club Secretary or an Official of the SWPL (nearly always a Committee Member or Referee Assessor present). This gives them the opportunity to address the matter immediately. If neither option is available then Players and Benches can raise their concerns with the Referee who is obliged to pass on complaints to the League. It is the responsibility of each and every one of us to uphold Law and keep us all safe.
  5. Best of luck this season Paul, massive thanks to Mike for all your years of thankless tasks and get well soon Brian !!
  6. Matt P can take most of the credit for the successes of Polperro. It's not what you do, its the way that you do it. Always a good welcome to Away Teams and Match Officials at Polperro, some big shoes to fill there !!
  7. Sorry to interrupt but I was at Sticker last night as a neutral supporter of the game. Mr Gilbert got a justified yellow card, that's all. The player he was in disagreements with had used foul language towards him and then taunted him. Referee couldn't have heard the language but awarded the offending player a justified caution as well. Other than that, there was a red card for Sticker and then Bodmin then had an easier time of it. I think Tornado Bello got his hat trick. The Officials did well and both teams did their best in the constant downpour. Sticker GK made some good saves and they also kept the away GK busy too. Well done to Sticker FC for getting this match on and being very hospitable to all.
  8. A great supporter and always someone you could discuss anything with. An inspirational man who assessed me and gave me some home truths on how I could develop better as a referee; these words still hang close to this day. Last saw Ken when he was supporting Mark when Mark was supporting/coaching Joe at Youth County & Camelford FC. So much more than just the League Secretary; he stepped in and mediated when people disagreed and he always had a good word for everyone. He simply cannot be replaced but his successor at League Secretary has had a good role model. Dave.
  9. I was hoping to go but had to work. That 3 hour bus trip is why we ended up with an east and west division on the st Piran League. Can you imagine the poorer clubs financing such journeys on a regular basis ?
