  1. Troon 3-2 St Just (HT 3-1) After finding themselves 3-0 down inside 15 mins to some quality finishing, it was an uphill battle for St Just. With the score at 3-2 after 60 mins, St Just missed a penalty and 3 gilt edged chances, but to their credit Troon held strong and battled well to earn all 3 points. St Just 2nds meanwhile were back to winning ways, winning 1-0 at home to St Keverne.
  2. St Just 4-0 West Cornwall (HT 3-0) - Att 53 Another good win for St Just, with a clinical first half display putting the game to bed. 2nd half both teams missed good chances but a late goal for Ash Ellis to complete his hat trick sealed the win. Meanwhile our Seconds suffered defeat for the first time this season, losing to a strong Helston Raiders side 4-0.
  3. Ruan Minor 0-4 St Just Seconds (HT 0-0) A battling first half performance by the St Just up the slope was complimented with some clinical finishing in the second half. Well reffed, let the game flow and only blew up when he needed to. Thanks to Ruan for the hospitality πŸ‘πŸΊ
  4. St Just 6-0 Ludgvan Res (HT 4-0) - Att 93 A good win for St Just, who could've scored more on the day if it wasn't for some good saves and some poor finishing. Ludgvan missed a good chance at 1-0, but apart from that didn't really threaten the St Just goal. Thank you to Ludgvan for staying for a beer and see you boys later in the season πŸΊπŸ‘
  5. West Cornwall 1-5 St Just (HT 1-3). A superb first 15 minutes for St Just, where they scored 3 quick fire goals and shocked the home side. Could've been 4 but for a good save by the West Cornwall keeper, palming away a St Just penalty. Second half a few handbags by both sides, but 2 goals late on by Jack Willis, who got a hat trick on the day, sealed the win for St Just. St Just Seconds 8-1 Storm Another good win for our reserves, with George Harry netting 6. Good weekend for the club!
  6. St Just 3-2 Newlyn NA (HT 2-1) - Att 75 A very back and forth game, with Newlyn unlucky not to get a point after playing the better football second half. A few mistakes at the back from both sides were punished, but overhaul a good competitive game. Thank you to Newlyn for staying for beer - in fact fairly certain they're still there now!
  7. St Just 6-2 Troon (HT 0-1) - Att 72 Despite both sides missing players due to boardmasters, camping trips and other awful reasons, a highly competitive game played out at Lafrowda. Troon scored early and put 11 men behind the ball, frustrating St Just and playing on the counter. Second half with the wind once St Just got 1 it was one way traffic. Wendron 5ths 2-5 St Just 2nds (HT 1-3) A great result for our Seconds in their first game in a few years. St Just with a good blend of youth and experience and deserved their win.
  8. We at St Just are hosting Rosudgeon 1st team this Friday, 6.30pm kick off at Lafrowda Park. Unfortunately the ref that was originally booked for this friendly has had to cancel, so anyone who is free and interested please contact Joe on 07837456363.
  9. Unfortunately the Trelawny League have to wait until everyone else has sorted themselves out. So we are always last to find out! In regards to sides leap frogging, whilst I don't agree with it, the option was there for any club to apply to either St Pirans or Combo since they had openings (although no issues at all with Mawnan and Goonhavern going up). It was my understanding the league is due to start 14th August, with all league secretary's being sent the proposed leagues for the upcoming season. With a couple of Premier sides folding, lots of sides have found themselves pushed up a division, however with the league unofficially completing, promotion and relegation was optional. This is why some sides have gone up a division and some haven't. The proposed divisions are: Premier: Threemilestone West Cornwall Camborne School Of Mines Troon Stithians Newlyn Non-Athletic St Just Constantine Praze Ludgvan Res Mawnan Res Div 1: Penzance Res Frogpool & Cusgarne Illogan 3rds Chacewater St Buryan St Day 3rds Rosudgeon Res St Erme Perranwell Res Culdrose Res Redruth United Dev Div 2: Frogpool & Cusgarne Res St Ives Mariners St Ives Town Res Famouth United Threemilestone Res Holmans Res Wendron 4ths New Inn Titans Tregony Goonhavern Res Falmouth DC Div 3: St Agnes 3rds Carharrack Lanner Lizard Argyle Res Dropship Constantine Res Probus Mount Ambrose Troon Res Mullion 3rds Stithians Res Div 4: Storm St Just Res Perranporth Res Wendron 5ths Falmouth United Res Dropship Res Goonhavern 3rds St Keverne Ruan Minor Mousehole U21s Helston Raiders --- Seems pretty straight forward to me, with the benefit of all leagues having equal teams for once. We have a date and we have our leagues. Unless for some reason another side folds or a side doesn't get voted in, I don't see the issue. Once the voting has been completed and the above finalised, I'm sure we will have fixtures announced soon enough.
  10. Been following this thread for months, as find it very interesting! We at St Just have recently been accepted for FF funding over the next few years for pitch works, so have had various vertidraining, weed killer, seeding and fertiliser works carried out recently. However we have been told that to see the benefits we need to increase the amount we're cutting the pitch (currently carried out by a local groundsman with his tractor). We would like to maintain and cut the pitch ourselves moving forwards, but just out of curiosity, what mowers are people predominantly using to cut their pitch? We have a limited knowledge and wouldnt want to buy something that is either overkill, or not man enough! Any advice is good advice and would be much appreciated. Every days a school day πŸ‘
  11. St Just are looking for either a home or away friendly for Saturday 10th July. Unfortunately this is the only Saturday we can do with other dates booked. Message on here or ideally call/text 07837456363 if you're interested. Cheers, Joe
  12. As you know Dave our ground is quite big, so the total cost was just shy of Β£30,000. I did all of the plans, submitting of planning permission and statements myself, so that would be an additional cost too. Luckily I was successful in obtaining a grant to help cover a lot of the costs, but even with that, it wasn't a cheap job!
  13. Not to be rude, but what do you think a fence is for? Unfortunately the pitch is treated as a public park, where our volunteers have to clean up after those who disrespect the property time and time again. Dog walkers who let their animals foul all over the pitch is one reason. Hardly want to be picking up after other people's dogs when you have an adults game on Saturday and then youth games on a Sunday? Let alone midweek training. You then have the adolescents who use the dugouts as a den to drink and sell drugs. They also feel the need to break in to the changing rooms on occasion, which is very nice of them. Local kids are on the pitch and in the goals every evening in the summer and again have caused Β£100s worth of damage only recently to the box nets. Newly turfed goal mouths now a box of mud. On occasion they also have been seen climbing up and running along the roof of our stand. If they fell, who's to blame? Is it you, rougvie? I thought not. Lastly, we use our car park for local residents, who in turn pay a small fee to help with the upkeep of the club. This has forever been abused and results in no parking for players on match days. The fence is see-through and hardly noticeable unless up close to it. I hope this answers your question πŸ‘
  14. Praze 1-3 St Just (HT 1-0) Don't normally write anything, but no word from Adam yet...? With the wind blowing from end to end, it was a game of 2 halves. However, St Just dominated both and deserved their 3 points. Praze didn't make the most of the wind, however scored a worldie with 5 minutes to go of the first half against the run of play. Second half St Just had a plethora of throw ins, corners and crosses, and eventually broke down the resilient Praze defence. From then, it was one way traffic. Several niggly fouls by both sides, but to be expected in a competitive game that has a mutually respected rivalry. Must say it was well reffed by Paul given the circumstances. Always enjoy a game vs Praze, win lose or draw (done all 3), and look forward to seeing you again next season πŸ‘
