Cornwall Junior Cup 1st round 1977/78

Recommended Posts


1977/78 dawned a new age for Cornish football. The re-structuring of the Cornwall Junior Cup meant the end of the group stages and straight to the east-west knock out tournament. It was also the first time the Junior Cup Final would be played before the Senior Cup Final on Easter Monday. Pendeen Rovers triumphed against St Kew on Easter Monday but back to the first round, these are the first round games: I'm sure some of the teams will bring back memories.

I'm guessing Stan Stag were either a company or a pub team. Were Redjackets based at the Camborne pub?

Funnily enough we lost to Stanstag the next season 2 - 1 . They played at South Petherwin.Quite likely something to do with a pub / social club there. Their pitch had telegraph lines running across the top corner. Whilst I scored our goal another of my shots managed to hit the phone lines !!

Where did Polruan use to play? Not much level ground in the village and i have an idea they played in Fowey but may be wrong.

Their pitch was above the village,  exposed to the elements to say the least. You could see Mevagissey on a clear day, if you could'nt see Meva then you  were in for a wet afternoon.!!
