Heard Bakes is going to retire. What a shame the blokes a legend and Penryn would never replace him.

As for him going to Falmouth Town and knowing him like I do I would say the only chance is NO CHANCE!!!!He's a rynner.......... xxxxxx

Dave Baker has done a superb job over the last number of years and produced a playing surface that is a credit to him and Penryn Athletic. He will be a difficult act to follow but I am sure everyone wishes him well.

I believe Dave is helping/advising Falmouth's groundsman but with him being one of two people working on the Kernick pitch I can't see him ever giving it up completely

Dave Baker has been very successful at Penryn. He has produced a surface that most groundsmen could only dream off! That is down to a combination of his knowledge and hard work. I think Dave is retiring as he has been training up a new lad. I still think Dave will still be helping out. I dont think Dave would just walk away from Penryn as it is in his blood.

I just want to clear up any confusion. Dave has given me some good advice for getting the Bickland Park surface up to standard. I have a general horticultural background, but i am doing my sportsturf qualifications, whilst looking after me little girl for now! Therefore to gain specialist sportsturf advice from Dave has helped. He has always been kind enough to answer any questions that i may have. I am very grateful to Dave for this.

My first aim will be to get the basics right at Bickland like weed control, aeration, good grass coverage. Then the long term to see how far i can take the pitch. This does not happern over night and will take alot of hard work. But we can only work within the budget we have for the pitch. I am sure i will make some mistakes alone the way aswell, but this is all part of the learning curve.

I think Wendron have a good pitch surface, and i hear Sticker do?

Hey Mark no problems mate i see you out there mowing all the time mate you are a great young guy for the club to have on Board and i know its sometimes a thankless lonely job! . But there is something about being out there on the pitch you can be so shut off from anything its a time you can think about this and that and slowly work things out ? Am i right , Keep up the good work mate people do appreciate :c: :c:

when did you play for callington. 2 clubs got fed up with you last season, what makes you think millbrook wont??? i mean your pattern of behaviour has not changed on here. i predict millbrook will out you by xmas , if the manger showed anything last season its that he dont like to be messed around ,ask the former u18 team that was there.

all the same, good luck to you saltash/cally/millbrookmike

i wasnt with saltash last season, i was with callington i joined saltash december 2007 - april 2008. i left because i was being honest on the line. with callington i played in the cup game against mousehole december time. yeah local every club is gonna have someone who is going to bitch, but as you categorically have stated that mr bunney does take no shit from anyone at the club. and i think my behaviour on here ill have you has improved greatly but end of the day its where my view is aired and read whoever wishes to comment.

woah woah woah.....how can you lot talk about good pitches and not mention one of the best pitches..if not the best pitch down her...HAYLE!!

Greg has kept our pitch looking amazing all year for the past few seasons. Even the pitch across the road woule be a worthy senior league pitch, pitches in the combo and the SWPL are bad..Greg deserves a lot more acknowledgement for his hard work at the club!!!

Thank You Greg!!! :thumbsup:
