Successful St Agnes Ladies Day
 Women's Football News 9 Apr 2008
Successful St Agnes Ladies Day - 9 Apr 2008 - Women's Football NewsSunday saw a feast of female football at Enys Parc, St Agnes, with over 80 females aged from 12-50 years taking to the turf in a celebration of female football and raising funds for the Precious Lives Appeal for a Children's Hospice in Cornwall. 
The day kicked off with a girls Under-14s match as St Agnes AFC took on Charlestown - both teams presently compete in the Kernow 7-a-side Youth League with Charlestown having finished their season in second position and St Agnes a creditable fourth. The game was evenly matched - both teams struggling with the idea of the offside rule which doesn't feature in the 7-a-side game - Charlestown coming out the winners 2-0.
The second match of the day saw the first ever Cornish Female Veterans side take to the pitch with players having travelled from Looe, Bude, Launceston, Hayle and all over Cornwall to be part of this 'first ever' fixture! A fine side gathered with years of experience between them, an average age of 45 and many still playing within Division One of the Cornwall League.
They proved a force to be reckoned with and their select opposition (with an average age of only 24!) battled but struggled to keep them at bay - the final result was 2-0 to the lady veterans! The first goal was a superb strike by Jill Haines from Launceston and the second by Anita Symonds from Bude. Veterans captain for the day, Bella Richards from Hayle, commented: "We had a really great time, it was fun to be part of and the only problem I had as captain was convincing the ladies to come off to let the others have a go - they just wanted to stay on the pitch for the whole game!"
The last match of the day, and the most important, was the Division Three Kimmins Cup Final between Holmans and Penzance Reserves, a fiercely competed match with Penzance the victors at 2-0 thanks to an own goal and Candice Britten.
The whole day was sponsored by Martyn Kimmins Print with all players in all of the matches receiving medals or awards but as the presentation was commenced for the Cup Final, Mandy Kimmins was surprised to find the tables turned on her by the FA assistant secretary Len Lobb and Jaipur Cornwall Women's League secretary David James who presented her with a trophy from the league for an outstanding contribution to grass roots football.
All the players from all of the teams taking part in Ladies Day were entertained by St Agnes AFC and during the afternoon, teas and refreshments were sold, donations encouraged, match fees collected and raffle tickets bought all to raise money for The Precious Lives Appeal, for which the final total on the day reached £630.55.
St Agnes Chairman Mandy Kimmins said, "I would like to thank everyone who took part on the day. It was a real triumph for female football in Cornwall, the support we received has been tremendous! To have raised £630.55 in an afternoon for such a special charity is amazing and I would like on behalf of everyone at St Agnes AFC to thank everybody who supported our venture in every way."
