Combo Team Nicknames

Recommended Posts

When writing reports for programmes, etc, it's good to write in a teams nickname as it makes it more friendly and less impersonal.

Below are a list of the teams in the combo and the names that are known. If they are wrong give us a shout or help fill in the blanks.

Falmouth Town - The Town

Hayle - ???

Helston - ???

Holman SC - ???

Illogan - ???

Ludgvan - The Hurlers

Newquay - The Peppermints

Penryn - ???

Penzance - The Magpies

Perranporth - The Pilchards

Perranwell - ???

Porthleven - The Fishermen

Portreath - The Gulls

RNAS Culdrose - The Seamen

St Agnes - The Aggies

St Day - The Saints

St Ives - The Saints

St Just - The Tinners

Wendron - The Rams?

During the week I will also make a list of past teams that have been in the league to be filled in.

As both myself and HP have already posted before;

As far as I am aware RNAS Culdrose have always been nicknamed the Airmen. This has been referred to in all paper clippings dating back to the 1960s that are currently held within the public relations department at the base!

We are constantly referred to as the Airmen in todays papers and the nickname is used on our current website.

As club secretary I cannot find a single referrence to the nickname the Seamen? as St Day's No 1 has pointed out we are Fleet Air Arm at a Naval Air Station! it would be like being called the Submariners? or Bootnecks?
