Football

Uwdi Krugg will be driving the trusty Match Shed to a selection of previously unseen grounds during the 2018-19 season. The accompanying rucksack will include the camera, flask, sandwich box, a pork pie and some crisps. Should be epic.

St Cleer


St Cleer are a Cornwall Duchy League side who play in Division 2.

It's a nice little village a few miles north of Liskeard. There is a rather pretty church and a couple of pubs. Sadly the the popular Farm Shop recently closed. Best choice for grub is the nearby Cheesewring Pub which is a couple of miles further on at Minions, top value stuff and very plentiful portions.

The ground, perhaps I should say sports field, is on the northern edge of the community just off the main road heading towards the junction for Siblyback Lake, Common Moor and Minions. Its set back on the left.

St Cleer FC play in all blue and when necessary change to yellow and black for away games.

For such a small club St Cleer have a cracking looking stand on the halfway line. Its the only structure on the field apart from the dug outs and it looks a picture, certainly for this level of football. So good I have just adopted it as the new header photo for the Tea Hut site (hope they don't mind).

I visited the ground earlier this week during a rare sunny spell (same trip I did Pensilva actually).

Lovely part of the world skirting Bodmin Moor, when it's not raining that is.

Here are a few snaps of that attractive little stand.
