All roads lead to Kernick Road this afternoon for what is the biggest match in the Penryn history?

This the ultimate local "derby"with probably the two clubs the closest distance in Cornish Senior football.

Anyone know who the appointed officials are?

Winners to travel in the 2nd Qual.Round to North West Bristol (Hallen or Bristol Manor Farm) Sept.22nd.

Just checked their playing squad it is managed by David Mogg the ex Bath City keeper but worrying is a certain mr Grantley Dicks(brother of Julian) playing.He is now aged 40+.

The last time I saw him was in the FA Cup for Bath City at Bickland when he kicked Ian Gosling all over the park.

Do you remember" Pidge"?

Hallen have very small gates averaging below 50 I suggest you encourage the committee to go for a coach to boost attendance figures.

You know the winners are away to Penzance/Wellington Town in 1st.round proper.

Yeh Mike, I remember when they both graced Bickland in 1992 in the FA Cup (3rd qualifying round?) when Bath emerged 3-0 winners in the rain.

If there is enough support, a coach will be going

This turned out to be just what was predicted, a tipical local derby,

I felt that the first half Penryn were better territorially, bearing in mind that they were playing down hill & with the wind, also most of the Town players had not played at Penryn before, just over the half way down on the right hand side the ground falls away to the right & very bumpy, & the ball does all sorts of things to frustrate the Players,

but the Town defence was very secure, as usual jewell got his name in the book,

the goal by Fergus Nevin towards the end of the first half was unstopable, very well taken,

the second half Penryn came out all guns ablaze, trying to unsettle Town but within a very short time town took control of the match, & although Penryn played well in particular their defence, one could only see Town the more likely to score, & with a little more luck could have had more goals,

in all I felt that it was a good match by both teams, & although Penryn may say that they had three top players out, Falmouth also had key players missing including Lee Langmead, & Darren Burchell, who was not fully match fit & came on for a short while

Gary just for you -the village Pub in Hallen, is The King William 1V.

Be there and I'll treat you.

Met up with Paul Kneebone yesterday and reminisced back to 1994 when Town won 2-0 at Liskeard FA Vase 4th.rd. and Paul scored the first and follwed by a wonder goal from Andy Waddell-both goals filmed for Spotlight SW.or was it the other channel?

Paul was the unsung hero in those days being a local boy from Combination League rubbing shoulders with SWL household names-great lad.

Pidge" What was his career record at Bickland?

By the way Pidge" this was the first Town win in the Vase since 2002 losing 5 drawing one.

Thanks for that correction Postie pidge, I should have realized, that the players may well have played at Penryn for other teams,

class of 93

we have to accept that these days Football is all about money, thereby we now get more players playing for a team who do not come from that Town or Village.

Hammers :huh::c: :c:

This was Falmouth's first win in the FA Vase since a 2-1 home win over Gloucester United in 2002/03.

It was the first away win since (I think a Bryn Wheeler hat trick?) we won 3-1 at Warminster Town in 2000/01.

Also Falmouth's first clean sheet in the Vase since a 3-0 home win over Carterton in 2000/01.

Mike, the Liskeard game was early 1995 but it was the 1994/95 season.

Although not a pulsating cup tie full credit must be given to Penryn for the effort they put in.

The first half hour territorially belonged to the hosts and the rare chance in this half fell to Stidwell who forced a left hand diving save from Murphy with another yard would have been 1-0.

Falmouth seemed to play a containing game and it was not until late in the half they put in some good attacking passing movements.It was in this period that Jamie Morrison Hill broke down the left and crossed for Kain Bond to head down past Butcher.

A spirited second half response by Penryn was soon suppressed as Falmouth began to take control.The second decisive goal came just after the hour when Bowker found space down the right and he picked out an unmarked Fergus Nevin to head low into the corner.

Andy Butcher was by now far the busiest player as the hot conditions began to take their toll but Penryn deservedly held out and a late consolation goal was missed by the No.11(Wil Scoley) who unmarked on the left blazed wide.
