The reason behind "The Peppermints" is mentioned in every single home match programme, so if you don't already know, get along to Mount Wise and catch a match and buy a prog.

Newquay have had their nickname for 101 years. I'm not sure that any nickname is official, just one that has been around for a long time and started by some quirky event at the time.

Newquay are The Peppermints, Everton are the Toffeemen but Liverpool are just the Reds. Chelsea are sometimes referred to as The Pensioners but more commonly the Blues. Truro picked theirs out of a competition run for fans, but was supposed to be the fans nickname as opposed to the team.

The White Tiger Fraud

Did you know that the only way to produce a white tiger is through severe inbreeding of brother to sister, father to daughter and mother to son?

Did you know that there is no such species as a Royal White Bengal Tiger?

If you didn't know that, don't feel bad, you were deceived just like millions of others. Read on to learn the truth about white tigers, white lions, tabby tigers and other genetic aberrations

For years we have railed against supporting facilities that breed and exhibit white tigers because of the abuse involved in producing them. White Tigers can ONLY exist in captivity by continual inbreeding, such as father to daughter, brother to sister, mother to son and so forth. The white lions and golden tabby tigers are merely a product of this practice of inbreeding for white coats as well and are not being bred for any sort of conservation program either. ALL white tigers are cross eyed, whether it shows or not, because the gene that causes the white coat always causes the optic nerve to be wired to the wrong side of the brain. That is why white tigers are such a favorite of the tiger-tamer-wanabees; they are far more dependant upon their masters.

Also is Newquay the only team with a club mascot, and does he appear at every home game?

The question regarding 'Charlie Chough' is one that I have also addressed in this Saturdays 'Wise Words'

Enough of the White Tiger inbred stuff, especially when you consider those that stand behind the goal at Blaise Park (sorry Paul/Chairman).

I think the answer the original poster is looking for is NO, the clubs nicknames are not official in Cornwall.
