  1. The question was: Which funding comes from the C.C.F.A. not through the C.C.F.A., such as the Football Stadia Improvement Fund. In other words, do the C.C.F.A. have accessable funding for grassroot clubs that is distributed by themselves, and at their discrection?.
  2. Which funding comes from Cornwall F.A. and what is the criteria for applying please?
  3. No idea why the 5 clubs have been threatened with demotion, BUT it,s not necessarily the pitch itself that is the problem, but the lack of certain facilities, or the condition of existing ones that cause problems for some clubs.
  4. Luke Brabyn scored for Penryn I believe
  5. I think things evened themselves out regarding the penalty as Penryn equalised scored from a free kick for handball, that was given against Martyn Duff who had the ball hit his hand from a thunderbolt kick from about 2 yards away. I'm afraid the referee had a questionable performance on the evening, but at least he favoured no side. Sticker deserved their win, but Penryn certainly gave them a run for their money and can look forward to a successful 2017/2018 season if they keep their present crop of young players together. On the subject of questionable happenings, the C.C,F.A. left a lot to be desired when, before the match there was no announcement about which players were representing their teams ot kick off, (P.A. systems are available for hire ), someone presented a cheque for who knows how much to a Fleet representative, and lastly there were long periods of time when there wasn't a football available to continue the game, as the match ball had either gone in to adjoining gardens, or was concealed in some stinging nettle beds. This is not the first time this particular problem has happened at a C.C.F.A. organised final, a similar situation arose at St Blazey a few years back, when the game was held up for several minutes while a ball was either retrieved from someones garden or the river. Pull your socks up boys! we need a ball to play the game!.
  6. Yes sorry Dave, I was just about to correct my mistake when you replied. My calendar now shows May and not April
  7. Congratulations to Stickers Sam Marchant, lets hope you are not scheduled to be out of the country this time Sam, and you get your first county cap ! Thursday 18th is incorrect Dave, it's either Tuesday 18th or Thursday 20th ?
  8. Foul Language is the title of this thread, and although some contributors believe that foul language is accepted and tolerated by society in the modern era, it's blatently obvious from comments on this forum, that there are a substantial number of football supporters who would like to see at the very least a determined effort to reduce swearing both on and off the pitch. Are they to be ignored by those in charge of the game. or do they deserve a voice, and the respect that the authorities make such a fuss about. As I said earlier, you can't cherry pick which rules to enforce, or for that matter who to enforce them on. I will add to that a 10 minute sin bin, and then a red card if it continues. Team mates will soon get tired of being a man short.
  9. If swearing is so ingrained and accepted in society, why is it that we don't hear the majority of public speakers using that sort of language when addressing their audiences. This of course does not mean that they don't swear, but it does suggest that they have a respect for their audience that stops them from using language that may offend. This is where intelligence comes in to play, i.e. having the intelligence and respect for others to acknowledge ( as has been stated by contributers to this thread ) that many people are offended by abuse and desist from bringing their families to a game, resulting from a loss of income both at the gate and in the clubhouse, which longterm will affect all concerned with the game. People who accept foul language should consider those who don't, and perhaps everyone will benefit including, importantly, the football clubs.
  10. Congratulations the Lillywhites. As a lad i was always siphoned off down to the front of the crowd so that with all the other children we could watch the Wherry brothers, Tiny Rowe, Jackie Miners, the visiting Pollard twins who played alongside Roy Nail at Newquay. Sorry got carried away a bit there, well done the present team on bring home some silverware.
  11. I agree with most of your post Tommy with one exception, and that is that we can set an example to others by not cherry picking the rules that the referee has at his disposal. I attended a local football match, when the referee warned the players that foul language would not be tolerated. One individual thought it didn't apply to him, continued his vitriol and was promptly dispatched to the dressing room. Nobody else decided to test the refs resolve to keep his word and after that the game became all the more enjoyable.
  12. This is the " if you don't like it don't listen'' attitude that allows the problem to continue. With regard to the legislation not being en'forceable at sports arenas, how then has the person in the Guardian report been banned from swearing in any public place in Cornwall, surely sports arenas are public places. A committee member may attempt to eject an offender, but if he/she refuses to go, the police can be asked to attend and remove the person, you are not above the law at a football ground. Whether the ban WILL be enforced is another matter, but lets not lose sight of the legislation that exists to curb foul language if it offends.
  13. By its very nature life is complicated, but unless there is a determined effort by officialdom, (the Guardian report suggests that that may be the case in some areas ) the few will continue to offend the majority. The majority of fans at football matches are boisterous perhaps, but well behaved overall. I wonder what impact on attendances the absence of foul and abusive language would have, I'm sure we have all experienced it, and many people refuse to take their children and grandchildren to matches because of it. These youngsters are the future of the game, and this is what is at stake.
  14. Foul Language discussions have occupied a lot of space on this forum over the season, which makes last weeks Cornish Guardian headline quite interesting. It read:- Ban on swearing and in the report of the court case that followed, it stated that the offender was given a five year court order, banning him from swearing in a public place. The person concerned also has a drink problem, and a ban was also issued regarding drinking in a public place. No doubt his inebriated condition contributed to his foul mouthed tirades, but there is an interesting section of the ban that is the law of this land, and is en'forceable if the use of foul language or threats or causing nuisance or obstruction, that would cause any person to feel offence, harassment, alarm or distress, directly or indirectly. It follows therefore that if a supporter or club official feels offended by any of the above, he/she need not rely on the referee to deal with it, they can deal with it themselves, IF they feel sufficiently agrieved. Food for thought in some cases that have surfaced on this forum i think.
  15. If Sticker had taken the chances they created, they could have finished in double figures. However they didn't and will have to learn to take their chances in the Premier League or they will struggle against the top teams. Penzance played the offside game, which caused themselves problems against Stickers speedy forwards, and are probably grateful that Stickers forwards had left their shooting boots at home . The result was Sticker won 3-1
