Immoral behaviour

22 posts in this topic

I'm totally shocked and disgusted a well established club could completely get rid of a whole team and management and bring in a rivals under 18s side and management . There certainly ain't no loyalty anymore . Some committee members should bow there head in shame disgusting behaviour

We successfully did that last year with a few.  The reserves have 7 lads that are 18 or under at the moment - Shame as the next crop of youth could have added to that.  It is a shame for sure, but best of luck to them next season.

It's very underhanded especially from a rival team no disrespect to you devon29 but why go to your under 18s I just don't get it . Rob we put a lot of effort in and had made 4 young signings for next season that were exciting to watch and then this

The management from parkway 18s has no loyalty. Jumped from Plymstock to parkway cos he thought the grass was greener, now off too Tavistock. 

Not the kind of person I'd want at my club. 

Shame on Tavistock for ditching a long established and loyal bunch of lads.

Immoral ? If this has actually happened - and if this is not against any FA rules, then they have done nothing wrong. This has happened before and has also happened in Rugby Union. Exeter Rugby Club did it when they turned professional - they got rid of most of the first fifteen and brought in other players, many of whom were already professional. They ignored the fifteen who had got them promoted in favour of a new team.

Yes it stinks and leaves a rotten taste in the mouth. It would be interesting to hear from a Tavistock spokesperson.

If (big if), Tavvy have got rid of their Reserve team and replaced them with Parkway u18, it could go down as one of the worse decisions of next season. Not only does it completely undermine all the youth development at Tavistock and the loyalty of current players - but also Parkway u18 are poor and as a team nowhere near ready for ECPL Prem - and that is having seen them as Plymstock and Parkway u18 - they have a couple of decent players but as a squad???

Results wise, Tavi have slipped compared to recent seasons. I've noted a couple of heavy defeats, 6-0 in particular recently. It's a results game or maybe the fact that the 1st team won the SWPL, what goes on with the 2nd team takes on less significance? A bit harsh, but that's football!!!

Wow.  Got the statement from Tavistock.  Nothing surprises me anymore.  So why did Tavistock allow an SWPL player to play for the ECPL team when they he already signed for another ECPL club.   The mind boggles,  Still there is one club that will be happy.

I am assuming the Tavistock chairman or First Team manager have watched this youth team? Whilst the statement from the chairman is very inclusive, unless they retain 7-8 Reserve Team players or proved players at this level, then Tavistock Reserves are in for a very, very long season.

The way i see it is its harsh on the tavi lads but from the clubs point of view having played tavi this seson i cant see any of the second team bar Jamie Castle and the lad Tribble being able to step up to help the first team which is what a second team is for in fact they use one of our players at Bere if the need someone so to get a young team in where they can only inprove you can see where the club is coming from but like i said it is harsh on the lads that have gave everything for tavi

Would it be churlish to suggest an ulterior motive here from Tavistock FC : that this is way of paying back for the loss of Glyn Hobbs to Parkway ?

Pretty loyal bunch of lads at Tavi too, 7/8 of them seem to have been there for years   now.
