  2. 2017-18 season fixtures updated to the website. Just click on your team. There were a couple of double bookings and several of you will be playing on both the 25th and 26th of November until it is sorted out. http://www.cornwallcomboleague.co.uk/clubs17.html
  3. Anything else come out of the AGM apart from which Division clubs will be in and cup draws? Anything about joining up with the Duchy, sin bins, etc? If not must have been a quick meeting with some people travelling a fair distance.
  4. I sent this off to the local papers but nothing written in my local, the Cornishman. I have no idea if it has appeared in the West Briton and it's sister papers. So for those that live in West Cornwall the news from the AGM. LWC Drinks Cornwall Combination League The LWC Drinks Cornwall Combination League recently held it's fifty-seventh AGM at Holmans Sports Club. The meeting started with a minutes silence to remember those of the footballing family that have passed in the last twelve months. LWC Drinks were thanked for their continued sponsorship of the league, firstly through Jolly s Drinks and more recently through LWC Drinks. They have been sponsoring the league since the start of the 1985/86 season and this remains the longest continuous sponsorship by a single company in England and we think the world. Almost all clubs were represented as they dealt with the business of the previous season and looked forward to the forth coming campaign. Carharrack we congratulated for winning the League Championship along with Ludgvan who finished runners-up and have been accepted to join the South West Peninsula League for the coming season. At the other end of the table, one of the league's founding members, Newquay Reserves were relegated and will be joining the East Cornwall League. This left spaces for two sides to be promoted from the Trelawny league. Pendeen Rovers were accepted for their third stint in the Combo along with West Cornwall who will be playing at Cornwall College, Camborne. The last time a side based at Camborne College were in the league was during the 1964/65 season when the Camborne School of Mines started the season but only managed to play five league and one cup game by Christmas and so withdrew as they would have never been able to complete their fixtures. All the four finalist's of the Cups were received cheques for their share of the gate money with St Ives Town receiving two for winning both the League Cup and Evely Cup. Perranporth received theirs for winning the Supplementary Cup, with Ludgvan and Porthleven Reserves theirs for being runners-up in the League and Supp Cups respectively. It was agreed the coming season will start on Saturday 12th August and will run until the 31st May if needed, and the maximum entrance fee to a league or cup match barring the semis and finals will stay at £2. Representatives were told the league will be joining the Whole Game System where all player registrations, results, scorers, transfers, etc. will be online from the start of the 2018/19 season. Also spoken about was some form of amalgamation with the Trelawny League to streamline the promotion/relegation process, perhaps reducing the number of sides in the league or even forming a second division. They were told that the leagues would be holding a series of meetings to discuss the future direction of local football. The clubs present also voted to write to the Cornwall FA to keep the modern format of the Senior Cup, where everyone's name is thrown into the hat from round one, the same. Trophies, Cups and Shields were then awarded to the past season's winners. Gerens James of Ludgvan won the Golden Boot Award for the third season in a row, with Luke Wort of St Agnes in second place and St Ives Town's Joel McWilliams in third. The top three in the Sporting Trophy Award in reverse order were Newquay Reserves, Carharrack and Helston Athletic Reserves. Helston also took the Respect Trophy with Newquay second and Falmouth Town Reserves in third place. Lee Atkinson of Helston was awarded the honour of highest marked Linesperson. The top three marked referees were; in third Mark Philpott, second, Kevin Knowles and once again in first place George Pattison. St Agnes with 146 goals won the Award for most goals scored by a side other than the League Champions. The draw was then made for the League Cup Preliminary Round Perranwell v West Cornwall RNAS Culdrose v Hayle St Agnes v St Just St Ives Town v Goonhavern Athletic 1st Round Helston Athletic Reserves v St Agnes or St Just Mullion v Falmouth Town Reserves Penryn Athletic Reserves v Illogan RBL Reserves Perranporth v Carharrack Perranwell or West Cornwall v Redruth United RNAS Culdrose or Hayle v Pendeen Rovers St Day v Porthleven Reserves St Ives Town or Goonhavern Athletic v Holman SC All the clubs were wished good luck for the forthcoming season and the meeting closed.
  5. That was the figure given out at our AGM last Thursday. I suppose a few of that number are for sides that have SWPL teams, where some of those players will never drop down to play Combo but are on the books, "just in-case" plus those players could not then sign and play for another Combo side until released after the seven days notice.
  6. Another point. The Trelawny League sides (add in Duchy, Combo and East Cornwall) are kept going through teams using a lot of youngsters aged 16-18 years old to fill their ranks. I should think that quite a few of those 900 are lads that move away to go to UNI. Very few teams fold so most clubs must replace those lads with the current crop of new recruits coming out of the schools or colleges.
  7. It would be interesting to know the retention rate in the Combination League. Last season there were 1080 players registered in the Combo.
  8. Newlyn-born Jason Blunt is joining the Academy from Championship club Leeds United, where he has been a Premiership player and is currently under-23s manager, to lead the new Academy at Mousehole and implement a unique youth and development policy.

  9. Brian, at the moment we have 1959-94 and 2008-17. For the earlier goals we have gone through the newspapers and not all games are reported on so we are missing roughly 12-15% of scorers. You scored from 1988 onwards so up to the end of the 1993-94 season we have found 14 of your goals, you may have scored more. We know you played longer than that so when we have those details of these seasons, those goals will be added to everyone's, including your totals. For example for 97/98 we have you scoring 7, 98/99 another 7, etc. When we eventually have the data base completed with all the info we can find then it will be up to players to look at their own records and email/message me with more info. I do not want info coming in from all directions at the moment. Let us do our bit first then you all do your bit to top up the info we already have.
  10. Since I started keeping records for the website in 2008-09 the top three league and cup goal scorers can now be revealed. Gerens James 301 Luke Wort 292 Dominic Pullen 290 There numbers will increase once we can go back before 2008 and also there are players that will probably overtake them as I have got most goals from 1959-94 and 2008-17. Waiting for more info from Dave Deacon re 1994-97 http://www.cornwallcomboleague.co.uk/the200club.html Check if I have your details correct. Find yourselves or your mates from this page. http://www.cornwallcomboleague.co.uk/anylettergoals.html
  11. How much does it cost to run Truro city FC for a month? Selling a 100 full price season tickets at £210 would only bring in £21,000. Peanuts. So I love it when people post "Buy your season ticket so the club can spend the money improving the side". That £21,000 might pay one or two player's wages. Not much of a team building exercise using the whole annual takings from one fifth of the average home attendance! Selling season tickets at this level has a small impact on a club's income but it does tie supporters to the club for the year.
  12. The LWC Drinks Cornwall Combination AGM takes place on 15th June 2017 at Holmans
