'QUITE a weekend ahead but we're quite excited,' was the reaction of Penzance goalkeeper, Yawn Madden, to the demands being put on clubs this weekend by League and Cup games, writes Big Bill Colwill. For the Cornish club it means a 9am home League fixture against Falmouth tomorrow and then a 400-mile mini-bus journey to Cheshire to play Deeside Ramblers in the third round of the AEWHA Plate competition on Sunday.

'Returning back down to the old home, if all goes well, around midnight,' Madden added. 'With no sponsor and no expenses from the All England we are having to spend Saturday night on the floorboards in Ramblers clubhouse. Not ideal preparation. The team are showing a lot of commitment and we will be at full d'esposito.'
