Is the game at Constantine likely to be on today ? I am about to leave on a 400 mile round trip for no reason except to watch it ? Would quite appreciate a quick message from someone who knows, telling me whether it is happening, before 9.30. 🙏

Left at half time, entertaining game at Constantine where St.Just were 2-0 up with their keeper making two fine saves. Hope the second half as good to watch as first. Great to catch up with some St.Just stalwarts to reminisce about old game between St.Just and Perranwell 💪🍻

St agnes 3rds 2 tregony 2 

Horrible conditions to play in. Home side definitely the happier of the 2 with a point. although will be gutted to have thrown away a 2 nill lead. Their keeper did pull off a couple good saves at the end.

Good come back from the lads and had the chances to win it but couldn't find the winner. Really frustrating afternoon overall

St Ives 0 (0) - (0) 0 New inn Titans 

New inn Titans arrived at Saltings, with 12 players after 3 pulled out due to seeing a thing called rain blustering  around in between, the wind. 
 

St Ives I believe needing a point to win the league, would of been confident of battering New inn, after seeing them warm up with Rolly fags and Dad bods exposed in the extremely tight kit, the likes of Arsenal wear for performance helping tactics. 
 

Leigh Isaacs was banned from doing the team talk, as just like Mourinho, he had lost the dressing room the previous week, so it was left down to Shaun ‘straight talker’ Isaacs
 

Dave bartlam the official started the game, and New inn pressed St Ives very well from the get go, but like a greyhound chasing that hare on the racetrack, New inn didn’t let Saints get their free flowing football going, with a few chances on the st Ives goal, new inn were lucky not to grab a goal. Saints played some tidy football down the flanks and has a couple of crosses blocked and a shot cleared off the line! 
Saints kept it fresh bringing fresh legs on every 20 mins, and the Dad bods and Fag wheeling players of New inn did well, to contain the fresh approach with only 1 sub themselves and that was veteran defender Shane Rosevear, running the line, looked like he has put a crop top on, the kit was that small. Hopefully next year the sponsors will buy a couple of shirts bigger than a Small. 
 

Half time came, and new inn felt happy with it being 0-0. 
 

2nd half and the whistle is to Bartlams mouth, where saints now had the wind, and a huge sheet of wet stuff flying in the faces of the Titans defenders , saints starting to press for the goal, to celebrate the winning of the league properly, but with Tireless running, by Michael Catterall, Who at 44 was running his little legs off! 
Fred Trudgeon at 17, and Connor ‘Beale’ Arthur and Joe day matching the midfield of saints, the game was at a stalemate for most of the 2nd half with No real clear cut chances troubling either goalkeeper! 
Game finished, 0-0 and the Reverse fixture 1-1 The Saints hadn’t managed to beat Titans at all this year. 
 

Really well Reffed by Dave Bartlam!

And well done to St Ives on the League triumph, fantastic celebrations just like when England won the World Cup In ‘66

 

Shaun Isaacs was happy with the Titans performance and even went home to celebrate with a few bottles of Bud. 
 

Man of the match - Fred Trudgeon

Delighted to arrive just in time to watch the Galacticos at Constantine Stadium, where their impressive Ultras were in fine voice in front of their gazebo. They were a cosmopolitan bunch. One had been taken all the way to Penryn in childhood to look for a pair of matching pram rattles and another had once been found, catatonic, under a hedge in Brill.  Their Jurgen Klopp opened with a professional inquiry about the configuration of St Just noses and it was cordially explained to him that his own head must look like that on account of his being born in a bucket. 

Though this was like an away Trelawney Super League tie, The Tinners felt at home, as there was a howling gale blowing in inconsistent diagonals up the mountainside, pouring lungfuls of drizzle. Strategically deploying their third generation goalkeeper, Goat Wallis, to boot the ball as high as possible towards a distant corner flag, enabling the wind to carry the play to the Galacticos' six yard box, they bypassed the subtle Constantine tiki-taka developed under Mr Buckethead's management. The doughty Galacticos, including the one who once drove a van to Bickland Park to deliver beer, responded very physically. St Just tend not to mind this. The St Just defence, with an average height of seven foot two, dug in manfully. In midfield, young Captain Sturgeon bumped his head against a team mate and was carried to his mother's Director's Chair. He said concussion was for Women. He knows what he's doing. He got A level History at Penwith College and can change tyres.  "How many fingers?", they asked him. "As many as possible, please," he politely responded. 

On 23 minutes, desperate Galacticos headbutting St Just ankles created a free kick opportunity 23 yards from goal. Jack Willis, high priest of the Rabona, scion of the designer clothing brand that is worn all over Pendeen, imperiously curved his right-foot banana round the hapless Constantine wall, avoiding the church tower to plant the ball, with Beckhamesque precision, in the top right hand corner of the net. Mr Buckethead looked somewhat nonplussed, but his International Brigade rallied, endangering the conservatory of the bungalow behind Goat's goal and using the dips in the Constantine pitch like shell-holes from which to emerge unexpectedly. Goat and the pylon centre halves heroically kept them at bay. Being Sennen fishermen, one of whom, Mr George, is a television celebrity, a pre-match discussion with me about the follies of Brexit had been ideal preparation.

Two great saves were followed by a titanic clearance to the corner flag, where three Constantine defenders bounced off Big Nick and rolled down the cliff at the lower edge of the pitch. Subtly evading the onrolling keeper, Big Nick set up Jack Willis for a near post header and 2-nil. "Our keeper's got no hands," explained the Stine lino to the sympathetic St Just supporters. "He's got no feet either." Up on the gazebo, the Galactico fans were cracking open cans of consoling beer, but their pre-purchased champagne (Bollocker, Fizz de Fizz, Penryn Asda, £5.99), not yet... 

Old Mr Sturgeon counselled wisdom and restraint in the face of outrageous provocation in his half-time homily, delivered in a wooden shed without any walls.  This was where St Just had to change because of Covid-19, in case of infecting the socially-distanced, masked hordes in the Galactico Gazebo. Very sensible. On the hour, after superb midfield sagacity from Scott Meagor, who could be mistaken for Pirlo if he were six inches shorter, fifteen years older, and Italian; and from Stuart Nicholls (I can't see anything wrong with his nose and he is the best electrician in Tregeseal), Jack Willis advanced on two covering, cowering galacticos, feinted right and dipped another unstoppable, curling half-volley just underneath the bar. So many jaws dropped at once in the wooden gazebo that it sounded like axes felling a forest.

There was still time for the elfin Tinners star of decades, Neil Curnow, to change the pace of the game as a substitute for the last ten minutes. He now wears Number 20 instead of Number 10 because his contribution to the game has doubled. Masterly holding of the ball by the corner flags and interplay with Ashley Ellis, who had directed operations in the hole (there were several holes), reminded me of his contributions to the momentous Combination Cup final triumphs over Falmouth Town in 2004 and 2005. 

The Galacticos bravely rallied and scored a late penalty, awarded out of sympathy. They tried to imitate Goat's long kicks to the corner flag, but that is difficult, as previously explained, when their keeper has no hands or feet. St Just danced and sang at the final whistle. This is a sight of great aesthetic beauty and artistry, rivalled only by Diaghilev, Nijinsky, Astaire and Rogers at their peak. It is the first time the Tinners first team has won a league (trophy?...well, where were the league officers?) since the season following my birth in July 1959. Weeelll, we would have won it last year...wouldn't we, CTB ? Ubnbeaten in a league match for two seasons, not bad ! So glad to have turned down the opportunity to see FGR secure a play off spot at Oldham in favour of a 400 mile round trip to watch this exhibition of all that is finest in Cornish football overcoming fancy tactics devised in the rest of the world. Commiserations to the Galacticos.

Thanks to Constantine for being lovely hosts (honest !) and good luck for next season...look forward to further trips to the Stine Shrine ! 

 

Tickets for St Just's celebratory festival, including a trumpet band, can be obtained directly from me. It will be taking place on the tarmac outside the turnstiles of Penlee Park and will go on all summer. TINNERS FOREVER !

Going to be a interesting league  AGM for me promotions should definitely still occur....couple of combo teams folding apparently...will we see st just apply to get back in top side and done a amazing job with the new fencing around ground ? Was rumoured that trelawny were going to boost numbers in each division unfortunately still not balanced out regarding standards but dont think it ever will be with teams folding and reforming.
