Hi chaps, took me a while to find this place, but I'm glad I have. I love the avatars and piccy attachments facility, makes getting certain points across more interesting.

Be good !

Username/Real name (I have no secrets - or imagination :D - ) Darren Lewarne

Club: Redruth United FC.

Those of you who know me will know that I'm 'Redruth til I die'. Formed the team from scratch in 1993, and a fair point to say that for many years we've been a bloody good bridesmaid in the mining league but never the bride!! :(

Check out our club website at http://www.eteamz.com/redruthunitedfc

I'm Redruth's top appearance holder at 447 games (which obviously isn't hard as I pick the team lol lol) and top goalscorer at 170 - although most of my goals were scored in the early years when I was a young whippersnapper!!! :lol::lol:

I also play in and run our 5 a side team in the Carn Brea 5 a side League which I am equally proud of.

Hobbies: ARE YOU KIDDING ??? I have no other life outside work beyond this (My Occupation is as a Senior Business Bank Manager, looking after local businesses, working with NatWest for 20 years....boo! hiss!) ....and neither do I want it to change :thumbsup:

Hi all...

Name: Jon Rosevear

Age: 33

Club: Tamarside FC

Pro Club Supported: Tottenham & Plymouth Argyle

Occupation: Quantity Surveyor/Commercial Manager of Decorating Contractor

Live in Plymouth with wife to Michelle and 3 step-kids. Had to pack in playing in 1995 after serious knee injury. Tried to make numerous come backs - that failed miserably. The last ending with a broken leg and ankle requiring a six inch metal plate and 7 screws... so probably best I called it a day then!!

Been involved with Tamarside's Junior and Senior setup for around 10 years now. I started the Senior side in 2000/01 and, other than a short sabaticle (no comment there), have been involved ever since. I'm very proud of what we have acheived at Tamarside in a reletively short space of time and our ambition remains to enter the new Peninsula League at some stage.

As well as assisting Darren Potter with the first team I also coach one of our U11s sides that my son plays for. We're not the greatest team in the world but they have improved dramatically over the season... and they enjoy themselves, which is the main issue!!

We have thoroughly enjoyed our first season in Cornwall and have met some friendly, interesting and extremely passionate people... and we're looking forward to playing in the Premier Division next season!!

Hi Cornishteddyboy here.

Real name Paul Smith, living in St Erth.

I have been watching Penzance since the glory days of 1974-75.

I used to travel home and away to watch all 1st team games in the SWL until roughly 1992.

I found that the SWL got boring so since then have followed our Reserve team in the Combo home and away.

For those that might recognise me, I'm the fat bloke with the beard cheering on the Magpies from the touchline. I live in hope that one day we will win something!

I used to watch football in the winter and the Mounts Bay Buccaneers American Football Club in the summer again both home and away. I'll probably watch the Cornish Sharks AFC based in Newquay this summer as I have just found out about them.

At present I am in the middle of building a website which will be an archive of past Combo teams, Combo league tables, etc. Once updated I will post the address.

Guest Tax-Dodging Saint

Real Name: Stu Reynolds

Football: St Day 1st (Captain & Striker)

Occupation: P.E Teacher in Penzance

Have played for St Day for the 8 years since moving down to Cornwall (bar 12 games for Wendron). Have seen the good and bad times of the club and it has been a fantastic journey especially over the last 4-5 years. A great club spirit with lots of ambition. I have also recently been adding bits and bobs to our website which is still under construction but take a look at St Day Football Club

Outside football I teach the next generation of Rooneys and Ronaldos at Mounts Bay School, enjoy drinking copius amounts of alcohol with my mates and spending too much cash.
