  1. Bude won the battle today but having only 3 shots on target and scoring 2 of them St Just feel they did enough to win with the numerous chances they had. Bude goalkeeper made several good saves and kept them in it. A few questionable decisions from the ref, including a jubious penalty decision for Budes 2nd goal. Thanks to Bude for the hospitality and good luck in the next round!
  2. Sorry, it is - I’ve clearly had one too many myself.
  3. St Just 7-0 St Day (HT 4-0) St Just never deserved a 4 goal lead at HT, but some clinical finishing the difference. Second half St Day ran out of steam and collapsed late on. Well reffed and thank you to St Day for coming back for a beer.
  4. Fair review of the game. Neither team having any clear cut chances until a defensive mistake from us at the death, although we did miss a first half penalty. Felt we deserved at the very least a draw, but Praze battled well and took their chance when they got it. Jason Roberts superb at CB for Praze. See you down our place soon, hopefully I would’ve learnt to down a pint by then!
  5. St Just 3-1 Penzance (HT 2-0) Tough conditions for both teams, with the pitch taking a battering. However good to get a game on!
  6. St Just 5-2 Falmouth DC (HT 1-1) Both teams battled well in horrendous conditions. Thanks to Falmouth for coming back for a pint 🍺
  7. St Just vs St Merryn is now off. Understandably we wanted a pitch inspection at 10:30am, not 24 hours before kick off like the original ref carried out unasked. Like many we want to get games on, so worth a try! Issue is not so much the pitch being flooded as 90% is fine and playable, but we are unable to put the lines down and there is one small area in a goalmouth that’s boggy. A shame but with more home fixtures in the next few weeks we don’t want the pitch ruined. Apologies to St Merryn - see you next week!

  9. St Just vs St Merryn still ON at the moment. Having a pitch inspection in the morning as late as possible (long drive for St Merryn) since both sides want the game on. St Just pitch usually good in the wet and not been played on for a couple of weeks so fingers crossed!
  10. Regretfully, we would like to confirm that at our EGM on Monday evening we made the extremely hard decision to remove our side from the St Pirans League. Our first team are founding members of the Combination League, so with such a vast club history understandably it was not an easy decision to make. The last 3 years have been a big struggle for the club as a whole, and last year a major shortage of players resulted in a handful of games where our 1st team traveled away with 10/11 players - a threadbare side that included 64 year old manager Steve Curnow and 55 year old reserves manager Terry Sturgeon. We also had to cancel a number of reserve team fixtures to help with the depleted numbers in the firsts. After a tough season on and off the pitch, the club were rocked with the news our manager was stepping down 3 weeks before the season started. With no recruitment being made over the summer, as well as a few players departing, the club unfortunately did not have a good enough squad to compete in the St Pirans League. The decision for the club to step up in to the St Pirans League was not put to the committee, which in hindsight is very frustrating. Had we stayed in the Combination League, we feel we would have survived with the players we have got. For those that will suggest ‘why didn’t the reserves step up’ - had St Just remained in the combination league, then this may have been more of an option. However to ask players from a side who finished 3rd bottom in Trelawny 2 to step up 4 leagues into a very competitive St Pirans would not be fair. We did approach several reserve players about this idea, however understandably it was turned down. As a club we must now look to move forward and start rebuilding. We have a fantastic youth set up at the club that will be progressing in to adults football soon, so hopefully together we can push on.
  11. As announced at our AGM last night, long standing 1st team manager Steve Curnow has stepped down with immediate effect. Steve is a legend down at Lafrowda and will still continue to help the club behind the scenes when needed and understandably we all would like to thank Steve for the hard work he has done for the club over the years. A true clubman. It means the club are now actively searching for a new first team manager. Our first team have a core of talented players, where we would welcome a new manager to come in and help build the side with players of their own to help challenge in the St Pirans League. Our reserves are well structured with good youngsters coming through, as well as the club boasting various youth teams through the ages that all have a bright future. Any applicants please contact secretary Ben Way on 07411942795.
