Grampound Welcomes New Sponsor Rock Solid

Rock Solid are keen supporters of many sports at various levels, especially those at grass roots and involving the development of youth enjoyment through organised sport and leisure activities. As well as sponsoring this years’ U15 side at Grampound AFC in the UK, Rock Solid are engaged in assisting teams and groups in The Netherlands in both junior football, equestrianism and hockey. Rock Solid are both proud and excited to be involved with Grampound AFC, and look forward to a long and exciting partnership for all concerned.

News concerning the Veterans

At the Veterans League AGM, it was unanimously agreed for the league to be split into two divisions to alleviate fixture congestion.  The two newly formed divisions would be based on last season’s league standings, not on geographical location.

The divisions will be known as Division 1 and Division 2 and will remain as one game played between clubs as before (home or away). On this basis it appears that Grampound Veterans will play next season in Division 1, meaning all very tough league games in 2017-18!

Grampound FC Committee

The Grampound FC committee is now complete and can be viewed here, but if any members feel they would like to help please contact a committee member so that you can be co-opted.

New Vice-President

The role of Vice-President is an honorary one. No work is involved and it is awarded as thanks for past contributions to the club over many years. At the AGM, Mike Bawden was nominated and unanimously elected as a Life Vice-President of the club. Mike has played for us for some years and continues to do so but has also shown himself to be a real supporter of the club in many ways and someone who is always willing to help out if he can. Thanks Mike.

Pre-Season Programme 2017

The pre-season programme is beginning to take shape but a few more fixtures are in the process of being arranged, especially for the Reserves. The programme can be viewed here but it should be noted that it is under constant review and changes almost daily at the moment. Training starts at 6.30pm on Tuesday 27th June at Grampound recreation Ground. All welcome!

Managers 2017-18

Glyn Ford will manage the first team, Dan Smith the reserves, Allan Webb the veterans and James Webb the Under-15s. Each will be appointing people to work alongside them.

Veterans Finish on a High Note

Grampound Veterans won the club's last game of the season at high-flying Callington Town to confirm sixth place in the final league standings, our team's highest ever finish. Special congratulations go to Darren Mortimer who ends the season as the Cornwall Veterans League top scorer with 18 goals in 12 appearances, 6 more goals than his nearest challenger for the "Golden Boot", but the whole squad has pulled together brilliantly throughout a long season.

Under-14s Win Cup!

Well done to our Under-14s who won a close match with local rivals Probus to lift their first ever trophy, the East Cornwall Youth League Championship Cup. Brilliant!!

The league runners-up spot was also secured when Liskeard failed to fulfill their fixture with us, Grampound being awarded the match.

First Team Survive!

The first team win their last game to leapfrog St Columb Major and escape the drop from Division 1. The team will again play in Division 1 next season.

Reserves narrowly lose in Final

In what is likely to be the last Duchy League Reserves Cup Final, our reserves went down by the odd goal against local friends and rivals St Stephen reserves. Well done to them and commiserations to us.
