Speedy recovery best wishes to .....

Recommended Posts

Regrettably heard of two in the county yesterday who are currently in hospital having suffered heart attacks recently.

1) Kevin Rowett, who a lot will know more recently as the County Youth manager ... but before that as a player in the South Western League


2) Tony Claypole - most of us will know him as either a player at Penzance, coach at Penzance and / or Mousehole and obviously a player in the Veterans League.

An ex-pro, his claim to fame is playing for Northampton and being in the side that went up through the old league system from Division Four to Division One, but then straight back down again!

Wow! I'm really shocked!

My best wishes go to both these guys who have given a lot to Cornish football.

Tony was the combo team manager when I was at Penzance many years ago and as far as I was aware was still doing a bit of playing in vets football despite his age and apparently was still doing the business.

I took over from Kevin as Cornwall Youth Team Manager and he came to watch us in the final last year. Brilliant bloke and a real gentleman.

I hope you're both well soon fellas!
