My username is Bozman1 and thats how you will know me (many of you will know me personally - it is not a secret).

Just in case you doubt it, I was born in & lived all my life in Cornwall.

Without question I am passionate about Cornish Football.

I appreciate the success that some of our sides have managed over the years (St Blazey, Porthleven, Bodmin, Newquay, Falmouth Town, Saltash, Liskeard & Penryn Athletic) even though my support is committed to just one of these (with a slight allegiance with one or two of the others!).

Through work & other committments I have been very slack with the ammount of games I have been to recently (This I aim to put right in 07/08) but my heart is still in the right place.

Username: Pablo

Real name: Pablo Martyn

Sorry this is late all. Anyway, for what it's worth; I am the webmaster for Bodmin Saints FC. Ty Martyn, club chairman is my eldest son.

My footballing days began late. I played in the Grosvenor league in Southall, West London in the mid and late sixties. I played for various village teams in Dorset and Somerset in the mid seventies and at one time was on the books at Ilminster Town. I played as a winger and a keeper; although I did once score seven in a match for St Lawrences FC in Bodmin. Some of you may remember the pitch at the hospital. If you stood at the goal-line nearest Westheath Avenue you could just see the crossbar at the other end of the pitch. It was like playing Subbuteo on a wonky table.

I played for the Mason's Arms of Bodmin as regular keeper and once turned up for a match after just leaving a very long party. It was a nine am k.o. too. I had a good game apparently and sang almost as well. I was a regular darts player for the Masons and once played with a broken hand. I just numbed the pain.

I played super-league pool for the liberal club in Penzance in the early seventies. I have played pool in various counties, including Lincolnshire and West Sussex, where I am now I have played and beaten various county players but have never represented a county mself, unfortunately. Oh well, never mind.

Anyway, I am a postman in Horsham. I've written two Cornish novels; both of the humour genre and a Supernatural Western. I write serious and humerous poetry (I believe I have a poem at the Alamo in Texas) and I write short stories. Ahhh, there's another one just finished!

Good to meet everyone.

Guest Brentford Fan

Morning all.

Came across this site as I was looking for a JCC table.

Have visited your part of the world on several occasions including several years back when Brentford played a pre season friendly at Truro.

The last time I went to a game in the area was for a game between St. Ives and Hayle res at The Saltings so that is why I look out for their results.

Can anyone direct me to the Jolly's site where I can stay in touch with events in the League or is it best to stay on here.

Guest Gloworm

Username: Gloworm

Football: I support Bristol City and live between Swindon and Oxford, but my family are very cornish and I follow cornish football results. I love it when a Cornish team does well and was very pleased when Truro won at Wembley. I haven't picked a team to follow yet, but I'm visiting Cornwall for a few days in April so I might make up my mind then. I'm also a football grounds enthusiast.

Hobbies : Football, football grounds, cricket, cycling and visiting Cornwall.

How I'm related to Cornwall: Grandad is from west Cornwall and my parents used to take me to St Ives every summer as a child. I've continued this as a teenager, but we've sold our holiday home in St Ives now, but it hasn't stopped my annual visits. Hopefully I will make it to a Cornish football match one day!
