Christmas Day Truce 1914

11 December 2014

As part of the FA Football Remembers Project, St Agnes AFC invited St Agnes and Threemilestone school football teams to join with them at Enys Parc in a re-enactment of the Christmas Day Truce of 1914 when Allied and German troops laid down their weapons and played impromptu football matches across the Western Front.

The event was led by St Agnes AFC, supported by members of the St Agnes Branch of the Royal British Legion with standards who led the four school football teams out to the centre of the football pitch at Enys Parc.

Christmas wreaths interlaced with poppies were laid by school team captains amongst flags in the centre circle. The exhortation was read out and a one minute silence was held with standards dipped.

With the scene then set, the football pitch symbolizing no man's land, the players scattered 'to the trenches' at each side of it. The two sides then sang Christmas carols across no man's land as happened almost 100 years ago on Christmas Day 1914, coming together as the singing finished. Football was then played to recreate one of the most iconic moments of the First World War.

Inge Aston from Germany then presented all the players with a RBL poppy badge and commented "That was very moving to be part of especially when the children came together across their no man's land singing carols".

Everyone was presented with a commemorative programme of the occasion and Alan Green of the St Agnes RBL said "Thank you to all of you who took part today, it was a very special moment to remember the events of Christmas Day 1914". St Agnes AFC Chair, Mandy Kimmins, summed everything up: "A tremendous event to be part of. All the children from both schools were amazing and I know they will remember being part of today for both the occasion and what it stood to represent".

Various St Agnes AFC teams also held their own remembrance ceremony over the preceding weekend during their league fixtures and photos of St Agnes and St Day Under 7’s and St Agnes and Falmouth Utd Ranger Under 15’s are also included below.

Lady's Boxing

24 November 2014

St Agnes AFC Ladies took up the opportunity to attend a fitness session with ABC (Aggie Boxing Club) held in the old youth club building in Angwin Avenue, St Agnes. Amid much creaking and groaning they were put through their paces by qualified coaches Wayne Salmon and Paul Hodgson in a fantastically well run and ability focused hour of excercise and fitness. There was of course the opportunity to do a bit of boxing with the gloves on, which proved to be exciting, entertaining, exhilarating and exhausting all at the same time! They enjoyed it so much they have booked to go back for another go!

Laura Hockett said "Awesome training session tonight. I am shattered, I'm glad I've got tomorrow off. I'd best have lost some pounds after that plank work".

Suzanne Hurrell said "Wow, my arms are gonna be hurting tomorrow, but really enjoyed boxing tonight. It was a good session with plenty of laughs. Thanks aggie girls and aggie boxing club. Amazing effort".

A Greener Future For The Sports Club

10 November 2014

St Agnes Sports Club are delighted to announce that tonight Ian Doble, Neil Cotton and Mandy Kimmins attended the Energy Fund Cornwall Awards event at the Eden Project where St Agnes Sports Club (home of St Agnes AFC, RFC, Netball, Gig and Boxing & Fitness Clubs) were awarded the fantastic sum of £33,250 towards our St Agnes Sports Club Solar Panels Project. The fund was well over subscribed and some projects didn't get any funding all. We have not been awarded the full sum we applied for, but a huge portion that can certainly make a significant start to our project for a greener future at St Agnes Sports Club. We will receive a full grant offer in the post shortly and will update everyone with the progress. Thank you so much to everyone who has supported this project and St Agnes Sports Club in every way.

Chair Mandy Kimmins commented "Wow what a fantastic sum of money we have been awarded by Energy Fund Cornwall, thank you to everyone who has supported St Agnes Sports Club in every way during our recent projects and particularly to Energy Fund Cornwall for their amazing grant, which will help St Agnes Sports Club move towards a greener future!"

Remembrance Sunday

9 November 2014

Something very unusual happened on Christmas Day in 1914. British and German soldiers had been fighting each other for several months and by that time around 40,000 Britons alone had lost their lives, but then they stopped to play each other at football. St Agnes AFC invited their visiting teams to join in a photographic mark of unity this weekend with mixed up team photos remembering The Christmas Truce in 1914 when a football fixture was played in no-mans land between German and British Soldiers. All the players from both teams were delighted to join in their fixtures and to share and remember the short time when the fighting stopped.

Truro Lions' Defibrillator

20 September 2014

St Agnes AFC were delighted on Saturday to be presented with a lifesaving Defibrillator by Keith Wellington of the Truro Lions Club with MP Sarah Newton present to oversee the occasion.

Katie Venton a St Agnes AFC youth coach and manager set the original ball rolling by suggesting the idea of fundraising to purchase the lifesaving equipment and organised for some of the youth teams to host a sponsored penalty shoot out. The top sponsorship fundraiser was youth player Gilly Smith who was present to receive the Defibrillator.

St Agnes AFC hosted a fundraising Duck Race at the Rose-in-Vale and during that event Keith Wellington from the Truro Lions Club introduced himself and offered to help as part of the Lions Club ongoing project to place lifesaving Defibrillators around the area.

Truro Lions Club launched its Heart Defibrillator Appeal in August, 2013 after forging a partnership with another West Cornwall charity, the Ronnie Richards Memorial Charity, to introduce defibrillators to Truro and surrounding villages. In just over a year the Appeal has exceeded it original target of five life saving units, as this installation is the sixth from the Appeal Fund following those at Hall for Cornwall, Truro Tourist Information Centre, Royal Cornwall Museum, Truro Conservative Club and Truro Golf Club. Further installations are imminent at Truro Cathedral plus fund raising has commenced for an external unit at Perranwell Village Hall & Sports Field.
Further fundraising followed and St Agnes AFC were very grateful to receive a donation from Phyllis Blake following the funeral of her husband Terry Blake a former player and supporter of St Agnes AFC.

The Lions Club of Truro Charitable Trust Fund awarded a grant of £450 for the purchase of a Public Access Defibrillator (PAD) for St Agnes Sports Club costing £1250, with the balance raised by St Agnes AFC through a variety of fund raising events. The installation took place at the sports ground in the presence of Sarah Newton MP, Gilly Smith (top sponsored penalties fundraiser) Katie Venton (instigator of the project) Phyllis Blake and Paul Blake (and children), Mandy Kimmins Chair St Agnes AFC & St Agnes Sports Club ad other representatives from St Agnes Sports Club and St Agnes Parish Council.

Across the UK 2,000 people die each week after suffering a sudden cardiac arrest – with the chance of survival at just five per cent if the victim is given CPR alone. For every minute a defibrillator “shock” is delayed, the chance of surviving is reduced by ten per cent.

The device, a Heartsine Samaritan PAD 500P, is fully automated and talks the first responder through the entire process, step by step, meaning it could be used by anyone – even those with no first aid training. However as part of the Lions Clubs “package” training will be arranged for key personnel at the sports club.

Mandy Kimmins , Chair of the St Agnes AFC & St Agnes Sports Club said  “we sincerely hope that we have very few opportunities to use it, but having the defibrillator here will give our members, players, visitors, and general public the confidence to know that we are now well equipped to deal with, what could otherwise be potentially tragic circumstances.”

Sarah Newton MP "I am delighted to have been part of today's event. It is a fitting tribute to the memory of Terry Blake that there is now a Defibrillator at St Agnes Sports Club. What a fantastic facility you have here with the new changing rooms and all the improvements you have made. Good luck with the rest of your plans"

Lions Trustee Keith Wellington says “we are delighted to have been able to make this grant award and with active fund raising continuing it is the wish of the Club to have many more across the City and district including sports clubs, schools, and the bus and train stations”. The Charity would particularly welcome local businesses to consider fund raising for their own PAD which the Club can provide at a substantial discount to normal prices. Private and corporate donations are accepted online at www.mydonate.bt.com/charities/lionscluboftrurocharitabletrust

Brian Biggin Tournament 2014 Finals Day at St Agnes AFC, Enys Parc

St Agnes AFC were proud to host the finals day of the 5th Brian Biggin charity tournament at Enys Parc, St Agnes using the newly completed changing room building to its full capacity hosting the last two fixtures of the tournament. The first match saw the home team, and only Jolly's Combination League side in the tournament, face a Perranporth SWPL team.

A minute’s silence was held before kick off as a mark of respect to Mike Trethewey a former St Agnes AFC player who recently passed away: his funeral the day before the Finals Day. The St Agnes -v- Perranporth fixture then proceeded with Perranporth winning 3-2.

Between the two fixtures of the day Sandra Biggin and Trevor Mewton, organisers of the Brian Biggin charity tournament, presented the St Dennis captain with the tournament winners trophy and medals to the team. Trevor said "What a great tournament it has been again this year. Well done to all the sides taking part and especially St Dennis winning in their first year in the fixtures. A wonderful amount of money has been raised in support of Sandra's chosen charity Prostate Cancer UK and we look forward to planning next years event". All proceeds from all the fixtures played in the Brian Biggin Tournament of well over £1200 will be donated to Prostate Cancer UK prostatecanceruk.org

The second fixture between Newquay SWPL and Godolphin SWPL ran out 1-1.

St Agnes 2-3 Perranporth

St Agnes gave Penisula West side Perranporth a real run for their money, totally dominating the first half. Against the run of play Perran took the lead with a wonder goal from 25 yards, the ball flying into the top corner. Aggie came back with a 20 yard screamer from Alec Penrose coming back off the crossbar and ended up with Perran keeper Barnes bringing down Steve Kellow in the fight for the loose ball. Duane Bitton scored from the penalty.

Aggie then took the lead with TJ Wilson finishing well, despite a look of offside about it! During the 2nd half Perran came back into the game and equalised early on the score 2-2. Aggie made five changes to the team giving everyone a pre-season run out, Perran then got on top and won the game in the final minutes when a loose ball dropped into the box and was finished off to leave the final score 3-2 to Perran. St Agnes gave a really good positive performance against a side in a league above them and manager Martyn Kimmins was generally happy with his teams performance throughout the whole of the Brian Biggin Charity Tournament.
