i was wondering about the old malabar football team, how good they were and how succesful?

my dad, uncle and a few of their friends used to play for them and spoke about their trips to play teams like hendon.

anyone know anything?

be here all day pidge!!!! anything you want to know trurolad,just send me a pm.im signed off work until monday.ill and bored!!!! malabar was a great club,should never have folded.if they could have owned their own ground,would have won the combo minimum.loads of good players came out the club.a few of the legends are regulars on cornish soccer forum!!! won the fhl 1 and junior cup but didnt get voted into combo league a couple of times,and just gave up on it.such a shame.would have gone up automatic these days,like kev did with port last season.all the sides that go up more than hold their own.had some great times,helped a shy 13 year old grow up quickly!! remember the hendon trip.lost 5-1,i scored a diving header in the last few minutes on the old astroturf pitch.cut my knees to ribbons and wished i never bothered!!!anyway,boring myself now!great club with lovely people,won loads,and all the stories are probably true trurolad!!! MALABAR FOREVER!!! :clapper::D:c::thumbsup: :yahoo:

Mark,

Refresh my old memory with some of the names that you played with for Malabar.I can remember Johnny Verran,Pete Gunner,Paul Allen,Steve Greener,Marcus Ruddle,Haydn Jose,not sure about Tabby.....

Can also remember another Malabar team(disbanded later) who played out between Chiverton and Mount Hawke with the likes of Pete Kinsman and Dixie Devlin.

Guest Man on the Post

On 20th April 1987 Malabar played George and Dragon, (from Bodmin), in the Junior Cup Final at Mount Wise. I still have the programme, but cannot remember the score. The Malabar squad was as follows:-

MANAGER: A. Channon

SQUAD: R. Wignall, A. Allen, P. Hunt, S. Bluer, S. Williams, P. Penhaligon, I. Penrose,

P. Allen, A, Penrose, G. Pascoe, J. Verran, C. Venton, H. Jose, D. Downing and S. Tregear.

REFEREE: Bruce Taylor. LINESMEN: Dennis May and Maureen Jones.

Rappo had obviously gone on to bigger and better things by then.

Whatever happened to Maureen Jones?

The Senior Cup Final that day was between Western League leaders Saltash and St. Blazey who finished runners-up in the South Western league. From memory I think St. Blazey won 1-0, (am I right?), with a truly outstanding performance from their goalkeeper – one Nigel Martyn. Saltash had Dave Philp keeping.

What happened to the Busby Gents FC a Truro area team who played Mining League football.

Does any one else remember them?

Another good team was Truro Boys Club FC

Trelander were started about two years after Malabar finished. I played for Trelander when they were started up in (I think) 1987/88 by Peter (Kipper) Dawes, who I believe had some involvement with Malabar. We had a bloody good side but never came close to winning the Junior Cup.

My dad was involved with Truro Boys Club, who (amongst others) had Chris Webb, Steve Tabb and Haydn Jose playing for them.

Leg.
