CORNWALL SENIOR CUP FINAL


Recommended Posts

Having attended this afternoons Cornwall Senior Cup Final at St Blazey, I was very suprised to find alcohol being consumed from cans and bottles within the stadia. The culprits were clearly St Austell supporters.

Despite officials being advised of this infringement of Football Association Rules and warnings given over the public address system, nothing was done. In fact the press photographers were seen to be taking photographs of culprits.

As these St Austell supporters were very "oiled up" by the end of the game and using foul language to the Saltash United players, a very nasty incident could have started.

Is this another case of the Cornish Football association "sweeping things under the carpet".

As St Blazey were the hosting club, I do feel they should have intervened!

Yes, I witnessed that incident

I know that both Cornish FA Officials and St Blazey Officials were aware of alcohol being consumed within the stadia, but what they do about it? They simply made an announcement on the Public Address System stating that anyone found with alcohol would be ejected. What a threat! I saw nobody with cans or bottles being questioned or ejected.

Should I refer this matter to the Football Association!

It was rumoured that cans of beer, bottles of beer and even bottles of wine were being "smuggled" into the Stadia.

I saw this freely being consumed very near to the players tunnel.

Although the Cornish FA Officials and St Blazey official knew and saw it happen, nothing was done. Surely it should have been confiscated.

Listening to radio cornwall they described an incident where a 'beer can' was thrown in the direction of the St.Dennis keeper just after Falmouth Athletic equalised.

So make your minds up who was at fault for throwing beer cans when Falmouth Scored why would town fans throw there beer for a Falmouth goal.

Iwas the person whom the can hit on the head and it didnt bother me if it did i would of made a complaint.

as for you saying St Austell fans were Disgraceful i think you need to get a life they stood in the rain singing there team on even when they were dead and burried at 2.0 down after the game i spoke to some officials of the county and st blazey and they all seemed happy with how the day went.

Went to the Combo Cup Final on Sunday at St Day

Was a crowd of us with a few beers and was told that we were not allowed in with them, fair enough. So we went and stood on the lane behind the goal and watched the warm up and finished are beer, as soon as we paid to get in we were pointed to were the bar was as was told we could drink freely with in the ground!

Yes we was the small group that attracted the local Old Bill before the game, but nothing they could do, as we were not doing anything wrong

Cornish Chough, when the full lager can hit you in the head, did you drink it ? (The lager, not your head).

If not, is it still there ?... in which case I will still drink it.

I have to join the call for high level resignations, focusing on whomever wrote the Senior Cup programme. While congratulating Nanks for his enterprise in turning the game with that superb first St Austell goal, I note that the programme omitted to mention that he is a past player and scorer for St Just AFC of the JCCL. Without such experience, where would his Corinthian sportsmanship have come from ? What an outrageous omission from his roll of honour !

Having stood behind the goal alongside the delightful St Austell supporters, my view, as a senior manager in education, is that the celebrating Lilywhites were a credit to the town and themselves. Any reaction against them from "the small town in Devon" who "led two-nil and f****d it up" can only be sour grapes !

Thanks to the Lilywhites for turning an otherwise boring three hours in the St Blazey rain into the entertainment we all came to see !

"OH ST AUSTELL IS WONDERFUL.........!!! " :c:

Pastyman have you ever been to a real football match?

Sadly because of the times we live in, rules are made to curb certain behaviour. Most supporters abide by these rules but there are always a small percentage who will try and push those rules to the limit. They seem to think those rules do not apply to them.

Most of the time they will get away with it because the laws/rules are not enforced properly.

How many people drive around using their mobile phones? loads, because they dont think they will get caught.

After reading this thread you can see why most sports fans in Cornwall follow rugby and have nothing but distain for soccer.

I can see your point there but it's not as exciting a game is it? I am sorry but i am a season ticket holder of the Pirates and i do enjoy the sporting side much more but it may be the passion that is in the belly when you are watching your footy team? :c:

Richard Chown my friend, yes I have, several. I was kindly invited to Villa Park for the Scotland v Holland match in the European Championships in 1996. And you?

Although we are many miles away from a Premier Leage club, I have gone to several games. You?

I have yes,

World Cup Japan 2002 right behind the goal when Beckham scored the penalty.

European Championships Portugal 2004

World Cup Germany 2006

European Championships Austria 2008

All perfectly orgainsed events

In all these tournements plus all the qualifiers and friendlys before hand we were allowed to drink in the stadiums, no trouble just treated like adults and everyone behaved responsibly. In fact in the freindlys in the USA, Budwiser were chucking beer cans at us to drink in the stadium for free.

The only time I seen it kick off is when in Croatia, the match were Robinson missed the ball, and the police penned us in with no food and drink before entering the stadium.
