Day 9 and we hear from a former player from the days of the South Western League as Mark "Nanny" Nancarrow recounts some memories for the  CORNISH SOCCER podcast. Mark has gone for "Five Former Players" who were all good friends and team-mates of him and by the sounds of it, also great characters! Listen in to this episode and then why not start thinking about your own "Favourite Five" and let me know. In the meantime everyone - keep safe and please stay home - you can save lives by doing that. Finally many thanks Mark for volunteering.

MY FAVOURITE FIVE with Robbie Stephens
Day 8 and a great choice by Robbie - "Unsung Heroes"! Robbie has been involved in the local game as a supporter, player and manager and knows just how much is involved in keeping clubs afloat and is the first to admit that without the people behind the scenes, clubs just wouldn't survive. As well as his main five, he also throws in a few more names along the way who deserve the thanks and acknowledgements from many clubs around the county. Thanks Robbie.

Picture the scene if you can, Falmouth Town two goals down with barely seconds remaining when they get a lifeline for what surely was only going to be a consolation goal at best! Luke Brabyn made no mistake from the penalty spot and into added on time. Time for everything, including the kitchen sink, to be thrown at the Longlevens goal. A cross comes in from the right and while flooring one of his team-mates, the visitors goalkeeper on the edge of his penalty area punches the ball away with the ball bouncing towards Jack Webber. On the half-volley Jack hits the ball back towards goal with the F-Troop doing what they can behind that goal to suck the ball into the back of the net! Everyone in the ground are on their feet applauding an absolute amazing equaliser and thinking 'could the comeback be completed with a winner?' Falmouth's James Miller sums it up "there's something special about the FA Vase!" (Apologies about the quality of the sound on this clip, but I think you get the message!)

RAPPO & DEACS, Series 2, Episode 12 Friday, October 18 2019
RAPPO & DEACS, Series 2, Episode 12 Friday, October 18 2019 It’s a slightly different Friday Fix podcast this week as Rappo is away on holiday at the moment! Yes, in the football season!! There’s still plenty to talk about of course, even without the “Bet of the Week” and the Predictions. The St Piran League is still discussed with St Austell’s manager Mark Smith, while its congratulations to Helston Athletic’s U-18s who have reached the First Round Proper of the FA Youth Cup after beating Brockenhurst on Monday and so we hear from co-manager Stu Giles. Dave Bartlam, a player, Trelawny League officer and referee, talks about the last of those three roles and the fact that there is a serious shortage at the moment. What a result Falmouth Town picked-up at Helston last Saturday in the FA Vase and James Ward was there to witness it. The current Truro City defender is of course a former Falmouth Town player. A striker is great form at the moment is Ryan Richards who has scored seven in his last two games – which makes the player more than worthy of a catch-up of course with the Friday Fix! Our resident guests Cam Weldon and Phil Hiscox keep us up to date with Truro City and the Kitchen Kit Ltd South West Peninsula League respectively and Phil goes over what is happening at the end of the season with regards to promotion. As usual, get in touch by either email davedeacon@cornishsoccer.info or twitter @soccerpodcast if you have any ideas or suggestions as to what you would like to hear on the weekly podcast.

This week there’s no excuse if we have a lot of chat on the FA Vase because there are two very tasty all Cornish clashes coming up, plus Camelford have a great chance of progressing as well. So we hear from all of them – managers of Camelford and Saltash in Reg Hambly and Matt Cusack; while for Torpoint Athletic, it’s a man it would be difficult to beat for being passionate about his football - Ian Stephens.

As well as the Vase, there’s a big Under-18 game coming up on Monday as Helston host Brockenhurst in the FA Youth Cup and we hear from the team’s two managers Stu Giles and Martin Daughtery, while as always we have our resident guests Cam Weldon and Phil Hiscox keeping us up to date with Truro City and the Kitchen Kit Ltd South West Peninsula League respectively.

Interviews from those at the heart of Cornish football, with a new manager’s name to add to our growing list of guests and friends to the Friday Fix Podcast. As always, many thanks to our resident guests Cam Weldon (with two hats on this week) and Phil Hiscox (keeping us up to date with the Kitchen Kit Ltd South West Peninsula League).

CORNISH SOCCER talks to John Dent - another in the "Cornish football Nostalgia" series
Another episode in the CORNISH SOCCER Podcast series of trips down memory lane with pure nostalgia, this time with John Dent. John played and went on to manage in the local game for well over 40 years. With such a long, esteemed time in the game, we could have no doubt talked for ages, however in this episode we concentrated on his time as a youngster with his home town club Plymouth Argyle; his “Twin Towers Wembley” memories and of course when he both played and later became manager at his favourite local club – Falmouth Town.  Good times, emotional recollections  and great characters discussed and so take a listen and enjoy. My thanks go to John for sparing the time and giving all us local football supporters an hour of pure nostalgia!

Leigh Robinson talks to CORNISH SOCCER
As the CORNISH SOCCER podcast was one of the first to speak to Leigh Robinson when he took over as manager of Truro City back in early September 2018, we thought following his recent dismissal, we would return to Leigh to hear his thoughts on his short tenure in the role. He says himself that "I think the club did the right thing for both parties". Enjoy your golf Leigh!

We have the manager of the first Saturday team to win their league as Threemilestone Reserves wrapped up Trelawny Division 4 last week. Liam Patterson, their manager, also confirms that the “pint a goal” offer for his prolific striker Chris Shackley did not go ahead. That’s saved Liam a lot of money!

RAPPO & DEACS FRIDAY FIXTURE - 4th January 2019
RAPPO & DEACS FRIDAY FIXTURE PODCAST  4th January 2019 Another episode of the new FRIDAY FIXTURE is now available to download and enjoy.  More interviews with managers and players around Cornwall, mixed in with Rappo’s “Bet of the Week” and our abysmal attempt at some Predictions, while we keep in touch with our resident Truro City supporters, Josh and Cam, as well as the SWPL secretary Phil Hiscox. Actually, this week it’s more Josh than Cam as you’ll find out why! However, in fine style Josh carries on solo as we recap on the Hungerford win, another Torquay defeat and preview Welling.  SWPL secretary Phil Hiscox was at one of the midweek League Cup matches and the quarter finals are now clearer. After three successes on the trot, the run came to an abrupt halt, but nevertheless it hasn’t deterred Rappo as he gives us another ‘Bet of the Week’. Before Rappo also highlights recent Cornwall Combination League activity, we hear from St Day’s Rob Hosking ahead of their Senior Cup tie with one of his former clubs Porthleven.  Then Polperro manager Matt Pengelly tells us how special a day its going to be for his squad, who for most, it will be their first-ever visit to the iconic Bickland Park.  Don’t ask how many of his five Senior Cup finals Rappo won though! But in his defence, he’s amongst many a great past Cornish players who also hasn’t picked up an Easter Monday winners trophy. With all the Senior Cup talk it seems natural to use those games for our usual Predictions slot, but can it help us improve on our terrible tally of only one correct since we started the Friday Fix a few weeks ago? Finally, ahead of St Austell’s trip to Chertsey Town for their FA Vase tie, we talk to player and assistant manager Neil Slateford who did a similar trip with the Lillywhites four seasons ago.

As we always do, we kick-off with a chat with our two young Truro City supporters, Cam and Josh, who give their thoughts on the Torquay match, as well as looking ahead to the return fixture and before that of course Hungerford away. We then speak to SWPL secretary Phil Hiscox for our weekly catch-up and find out if after all his phone was quiet on Christmas day. Rappo has his ‘Bet of the Week’ before we hear from a disappointed sounding Dane Bunney after the Ashes Boxing Day defeat. Rappo gives us his weekly Cornwall Combination update before in contrast to Dane, we feature a very happy sounding Steve Massey, straight after his Helston side beat Falmouth. Then it’s our Predictions with this time huge excitement as we’ve finally got one correct after three weeks of trying! Finally, we talk to Wadebridge Town’s boss Paul Rowe who is enjoying his first season in charge of the SWPL side at Bodieve Park, despite it being a massive learning curve!

Amidst the interview the club Chairman Paul Hendy phoned Stu to finalise the coach arrangements! As Stu said every club has special people behind it and Paul is one. Every club also need sponsors and well done to Scorse Foods Ltd for the tracksuits and Meneage Dental for the kit and training tops. We wish Helston the best of luck in this journey.

We hear his thoughts on a load of subjects - England's World Cup, Love Island, Shane Krac's abs, Cody Cooke's St Mirren move, his season with Truro City, which ex-Truro players to play cards with, his decision to join Parkway, pre-season training, Glynn Hobbs, a word for the Truro supporters and the sports we probably won't ever see Yettsy play!

The Friday Fix with St Austell Voice's Gareth Rowett
CORNISH SOCCER talks to the St Austell Voice Sports Editor Gareth Rowett. He's been reporting on football around the St Austell area for about 12 years and so there isn't much he doesn't know about the mid-Cornwall clubs and touches on St Blazey, Sticker and St Austell in this podcast. His choice of tomorrow's SWPL games to look out for tomorrow might surprise a few of you as well. Gareth is also appealing for anyone to contact him for help in finishing off the book he is writing about St Austell FC. His email address is garethrowett@gmail.com

A live test of a CORNISH SOCCER Podcast
This one features 3 willing volunteers from the South West Peninsula League Division One West, the LWC Drinks Combination and the Trelawny League. It's a dummy run but have a listen and let me know what you think. And apologies for the slight delay between the introduction and when the volunteers join (a teething problem!) Many thanks to Steve Abbott-Smith, Rob Hosking and Dave Bartlam who without them I wouldn't have been able to test this all out. If you like what you've heard and wish to get involved, do what the guys did - download the Anchor App (it's free) and then add CORNISH SOCCER as a favorite. Then you not only get to be able to listen to episodes sooner than waiting for the podcast to be available online, but you can join in as well.
