County Youth in action on the 5th December!

Recommended Posts

From the Cornwall County FA this afternoon:-

Following the U18 Rep side's victory against Gloucestershire in the 2nd Round of The FA County Youth Cup a date has been fixed for the 3rd Round tie against West Riding.

The game will be played at Truro City on Saturday 5th December 2015 with a 2pm Kick Off.

FA Rules state that the tie must be played on or before 12th December and a mutual date agreed.

West Riding requested that the fixture not be held on either 28th November or 12 December due to prior commitments and the Cornwall FA Under 18 team management requested not the 21st or 28th November.

We have had tremendous backing and support all season for the U18 Rep Team and hopefully we will attract a large crowd to cheer the boys on against West Riding

Excellent photo on the County Web Site of the squad that last played against West Riding in season 1994/95.

A Quarter Final Tie resulting in 2 - 1 victory for the Cornwall lads. Goals from Justin Andrew ( Truro City ) and Gary Wheildon ( St.Dennis ).:c:

21 years ago, frightening how time goes by.

Sure does.


Devon 0 Cornwall 6.

Scored 6 could have been 10.  That was a very strong squad indeed. Devon never had a kick.

Went on win the South West Counties Championship defeating Gwent in the Play Off Final at Bickland Park by 1 goal to nil. Goalscorer (if my memory serves me right) was Ryan Trudgian.

Have to agree with Dave, Cornwall well beaten on the day. West Riding a bit more street wise than Cornwall in a game, no doubt like everywhere else in the county today, ruined by the windy conditions.

Here's a summary of the action points of match:-

21           Yellow Card to WR’s Cody Cromack

22           Yellow Card to WR’s Jack Cooper for foul on Roberts

29           WR’s Dennison shot

37           WR’s Cooper shot wide

39           WR GOAL : shot from Adam Whittaker 1-0

40           Cornwall Dario Pisano effort

45           WR Aaron Fell free-kick effort


47           WR GOAL : from free-kick Brad Patefield pokes home 2-0

53           Cornwall’s Tonkin challenge on keeper and ball rolls towards WR goal

57           Free kick in from Cornwall

59           Scuffle resulting in WR Vaughan Redford Yellow Card and Tonkin YC for Cornwall

70           WR GOAL : Cooper comes in from right & left footed cross/shot hits far post and goes in 3-0

Also must say thanks to Tommy Matthews for helping as Piran Films summariser today. And that guy who sat behind us, what's his name - Trevor Mewton! :thumbsup: I hate to think how many trophies between them they've won!!!
