  1. Rappo was immense and Falmouth Town through and through, plus Tommy Mathews, Dodger Long, George Torrence, Neil Philips and to be honest many many more players from the 80's & 90's era. My reference in my comment was to the all conquering 70's side that i watched more than any other. 8 league titles on the bounce, (4 SWL & 4 WL) plus numerous cups. Every player that has pulled on the black & amber shirt and walked down those steps at Bickland Park is special. UTT
  2. If i was a player today i would crawl over broken glass to play in front of the ever growing F-Troop at Bickland Park for the mighty Falmouth Town. For many years our great club has been sleeping and indeed came within 2 days of losing Bickland Park 5 years ago, a club living on past glories of players like Manley, Etheridge, Rich, Carter, Scott, Kellow, Chegwyn, Ashe, Horrocks and many more. But Bickland Park was saved and now the club is back on its feet, out of debt, and ready to go. In Westy we have a young vibrant manager who was born a stone throw from Bickland Park and is building a young vibrant team to carry the club forward. Within the past 2 years the club has made massive improvements to Bickland Park, new roof on main stand, seats added, new floodlights, new extended roof on the Packet End and in the past couple of months lots on improvements to the clubhouse including a new roof and weather boards etc. Theres no ground in Cornwall like Bickland Park. Believe me, the Town is buzzing for the season to start, the F-Troop are chomping at the bit to get back. Promotion is our aim but it wont be easy, there are still a lot of quality teams in the SWPL but we are going to give it a real go. UP THE TOWN !!!
  3. An absolute cracking game to watch. The 1st half Christchurch edged it however we had a couple of gilt edge chances that their keeper saved, especially a close range header. What a save !!! The 2nd half was wave after wave of Town pressure but Christchurch defended well and always looked a threat on the counter attack. Although our approach play was outstanding we were let down by the final ball and bad luck until 10 minutes from the end Wardy rose and headed the equaliser that sent the travelling F-troop wild. But despite more pressure by Town the score remained 1-1 at the final whistle. The penalty shoot saw us take a 2-0 lead but despite missing their first penalty i have to say the quality of spot kicks there after by Christchurch were all top drawer. We missed our 4th and 6th penalties to lose 6-5 and our dream was over for another season. All i can say is...roll on St Mawgan this coming Saturday for our CSC match. I'm feeling....TOWN ALL OVER
  4. Check the record books le boss !!! Yes a fantastic Vase win but look at SWL & Western League titles won !!! FA Cup achievements etc etc. Everyone to their own but for me and i am biased Falmouth Town are the greatest and are on the rise once again. UTT
  5. Theres only one Joe Cooper Moonraker1969. And i for one would love to see big Joe return to his beloved Falmouth Town one day, stranger things have happened. This video as Dave said in a previous comment is the work of a University student called James, a great lad and is part of his degree. I have spoken to James a few times and we plan to tap into the 8,000 students that attend the University at Penryn. Our aim is to increase our attendances and help our club to progress. Covid has delayed all this but once it has been beaten our work begins. Oh and btw for Bruegels concern the video contains scenes pre-covid, not all but most. I would have thought by posting this video it would encourage other clubs to try the same and promote local grassroots football, attract more local spectators and increase clubs revenue and matchday atmosphere. Anyway i love the video and glad you enjoyed it also. UTT
  6. Definitely not Dave. But its easy to predict responses from certain individuals. Thats all mate. Whys that ?
  7. You haven't a clue Boss. Exactly the response i expected from this forum when i posted this little video.
  8. Just a little insight into Falmouth Town and the F-troop and how a community has come together to support and try to restore Cornwalls greatest football club back to where it belongs. This is a journey and what fun and memories we will make along the way. IM FEELING...TOWN ALL OVER !!!!! https://www.facebook.com/groups/1202852346434184/permalink/3782597768459616/
  9. See you Saturday Rob. Im buzzing already UTT
  10. Rob, Everyone is entitled to an opinion of course. My only gripe was you using the new F-Troop members to hammer home your point about only adults in the clubhouse. Its not their fault. Lots of the new troopers were regulars back in the 70's & 80's. We are expanding numbers at a rapid rate and have lots of new ideas when covid is over. We need to be encouraging new members, that's how we will take the club to a new level, which we all want. There has also been a very small minority who seem to have pulled away since the reformation of the FBB/F-Troop, that's their choice. There has even been a few moans and groans about the boom box in the clubhouse. Can you believe that ? The boom box is used 1 hour before a home game in the clubhouse once every 2 weeks to get the atmosphere going !! for the remaining 13 days and 23 hours a fortnight it's boom box free. Not intrusive at all in my book. But it is what it is and the clubs in a brilliant position with a cracking young, local team, potentially big crowds, Bickland Park looks amazing, thanks to many people including a few of the new returning F-troopers who rebuilt the Packet End, rebuilt the dugouts and built a press box, plus all the painting that's been done around the ground. And this was all largely financed by the FBB/F-TROOP REUNITED GROUP doing a fund raiser among members. Nothing personal Rob, we can agree to disagree but hopefully we will be together celebrating a famous Vase victory this Saturday. Jeff. UTT
  11. Oh dear. Reading some of the above comments is sad. All i know is in my book every single F-Trooper is equal and valued. Whether its their first game or they haven't missed a game for 50 years. As long as they come and support Falmouth Town that's good enough for 99.5% of us. But you will always get some fans who think they are better than others i guess. What a load of old codswallop !!! The decision for adults only in the clubhouse for the Vase game next Saturday was made by the committee of Falmouth Town AFC. That's their job. There's nothing anyone can do about it. They have their reasons for their decisions so we all need to just turn up and support Falmouth Town to another famous victory. UTT
  12. A great old Cornish football club. Plus my Mrs is a Newquay girl so gotta say that lol. Good luck Newquay.
  13. Yes mate, we had some fun. I only made the decision to participate 30 minutes before the show but glad i did now. Gives Jack some support as he is a great lad and really good at what he does. Always a pleasure Rappo and hope to see you soon at a game mate. UTT.
  14. We've got 4 home games on the spin now. Launceston, Newquay, St Blazey and Abingdon. Really looking forward to it. UTT
  15. CC, I remember you and your two little ones. So glad you all had a great time. We tried to tone it down a bit but apart from the odd chant we don't actually swear to much. And to hear they were buzzing when they got home is marvelous. That was my brother Donald on the drum, he buggered off to the far end for the 2nd half and gave us all a break ha ha ha . A number of us decided to stay under the roof for the 2nd half with rain expected. Remember when Dobwalls scored their 3rd goal, their players really ripped into us, loved it . But when the final whistle blew and victory was theirs they actually came over and clapped us, we clapped them, that's how it should be. Although Town enjoyed the lions share of possession it was Dobwalls that looked more of a goal threat with their quick forwards and powerful runners in midfield. Well done to them on a fully deserved victory, i got a feeling that we won't be the only big scalp they take at their ground this season. A very good side. Oh by the way CC, ive invested in new batteries for the boom box after they failed on Saturday he he. Poor preparation by me tut tut. Have a good season and hopefully see you at Bickland Park for the return game. Jeff. UTT
