St Day Football Club - 1966 Quiz Night - Friday 22nd July
In an attempt to do something a little different St Day AFC organised a 1966/football themed quiz on Friday 22nd July. A decent turnout were tested by some very difficult questions from quizmaster Mark Leah on varying topics from 1966 right up to the modern day and everything in between. Can you name the only two men who have won the world cup as a player and a manager? (no google allowed).
St Day are one of our most progressive clubs and embrace everything Cornwall FA try to do, they were brilliant hosts for our Boys County Cup Finals this season and have a strong dedicated committee who continue to promote all the positive aspects of football and grow the club in the right way. They always have coaches on our CPD events and are continually trying to improve and it was a pleasure for Cornwall FA Council member Steve Lawrence to hand over £250 which recognise not only the fantastic quiz night but the general progression and efforts of this fantastic club. Although it must be added that the team from Cornwall FA led by Richard Pallot did win the quiz.
Mousehole AFC - Fun Day and Introduction to Football
Mousehole AFC's Trungle Park was host to our fifth legacy event as a fun football day was held for 6-12 year olds. Fifty children arrived and were put through their paces by a willing band of volunteers led by Mousehole Women's manager Dawn Bateman. Many of the kids involved aren't involved with clubs and came a long just to give it a go and hopefully they will have enjoyed the days activities and the great atmosphere at Mousehole enough to consider getting more involved. The morning saw the players split into teams and go a round a number of different football related activities including a Target Shot and Football obstacle course. After a lunch time break the children then got play some small sided football and test a few of the skills they learnt in the morning.
Mousehole are another club who are moving in the right direction on and off the pitch and as with St Day are continually looking to grow and improve. This will be the first of many such events as the club look at starting a youth section for boys and girls to add to the successful Women and Men's Senior sections. No doubt this hard work and dedication will pay dividends in the future. Again a worthy recipient of £250 which was presented by Cornwall FA Council member David James.
