  1. St Just vs Lanner off due to safety concerns. Pitch is 85% playable and would be 100% with a bit of forking (3 hours until kick off) but referee concerned about safety due to the wind and has called it off. Feel bad for Lanner who have booked a minibus and want the game to go ahead, as do St Just, however can’t due to safety concerns with the wind. We also have an experienced independent ref who would feel comfortable reffing, but can’t after an official calls it off. Apologies to Lanner and see you later in the season - probably midweek in the summer when everyone’s trying to get through their backlog of games!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
