Pair step down from second team coaching roles

Terry Jarvis and Jack Roberts have stepped down from their coaching roles in the St Piran League team with immediate effect.

Jarvis’ departure signals the end of a two-year stint with the reserve team, having arrived at Bickland Park in the summer of 2020 as joint manager alongside Lee Mitchell.

Roberts replaced Mitchell when he stepped down part way through last season, with the pair going on to assist current player-manager Ryan Martt when he assumed the role in March.

David Turner, who was recently announced as one half of our new under-18s management team, will also assist Martt in running the St Piran League team next season.

Manager Ryan Martt said: “It’s really sad to see them leave because they were there all season and had some great results and were really supportive of me when I came in. They deserve a lot of plaudits for the good things that happened in the season.

“They’ll both be really sorely missed and I can’t thank them enough for their help and guidance in my first foray into management. With their experience and the bits they were doing behind the scenes, it would have been impossible for me to do what I was doing without their help.

“It’s a big loss, they’ll be missed and everyone at the club wishes them all the best.”

On working with Turner this coming season, Martt said: “I think he’s a really great addition to the under-18s and the reserves. He’s got a wealth of experience with coaching youth teams and I think his services were quite sought after, so for Westy to get him involved is a really great addition.

“He’s hopefully bringing in a few good young prospects that we can nurture and push forward into the first team and beyond, which is what the reserves is there for, but also for us to go out and have a good season because we want to be going out and winning things. 

“As part of Falmouth we’re not there to just pass people on, we’re there to challenge for the league, challenge for cups and have a winning mentality. 

“Dave brings that with him, he’s a winner and he’s got very similar thought patterns and ideas to what Westy has and what I have, so I think he’s going to be a really good fit.”

We would like to thank Terry and Jack for their efforts and wish them all the best for the future.
