For you Mike as like me, you like this kind of info

At the end of the 1967-68 season, 3000 people packed into Penlee Park, Penzance to watch the SWL Cup Final. Falmouth beat Truro 4-2 A.E.T.

When was the last time 3000 people watched a SWL match?

There was a team called Tools and Dies who beat St Agnes Reserves 4-2 at their Park Road ground. Any ideas?

On 24th Feb 1966 it was reported that Falmouth Docks had applied to play a visiting, touring team on a Sunday but the CCFA had refused as no football was to be played in Cornwall on a Sunday.

Some of the CCFA Committee said they knew Sunday football would be the norm soon but not yet.

Hiya CTB -I see your last bit of nostalga made the Sunday newspapers.

Tools and Dies was a small engineering factory just off Trevenson Road, Pool (opposite the Cornwall College main entrance).

The last I heard it was the Joblink Training Centre.

They shared The Park Road ground with Pengegon and one of their employees was a John Peters who played for Pengegon, Pool and Carharrack and later was a popular manager of St.Austell in the South Western League.

That should bore the pants off the knockers !

According to the West Briton they quoted a gate of 3800
