    Just for the record and because it has been mentioned on a number of occasions about the “no response from the League”... I refuse to have anything to do with this! I was not at the meeting as I am working in the Middle East; the first I heard about it was when I started getting notifications through on my phone after the post was put on Facebook. I have made my feelings known to a few members of the committee privately; I have also sent an email to the whole of the committee expressing my disapproval of this decision! I understand why the decision has been made but I am of the opinion we could have sorted something out to avoid all of the cups being canned. I refuse to have anything to do with a decision which I have absolutely no control or say over. Usually I’m the one that posts on our Facebook page and on here, I won’t be doing that with regards to this decision. That is why you have heard pretty much nothing from the league. In my opinion, this should have been put to the clubs before a decision was made! As a player, we all want to be playing in Cup games! You can’t beat a cup run and a cup win! Let me reiterate that my comments above are purely my own and have absolutely nothing to do with the League,

    SWPL - Saturday Feb 17 2018

    Great result for us today away at Cullompton......had only 12 players then young max had to pull out in the warm up feeling ill so had to play with no sub’s!! But the lads fought hard on a very wet soft pitch and we scored 2 great 2nd and 3rd goals plus young Zak pulling out an amazing save at the score 2-1!! I’m one very proud captain today!! 😊👍⚽️

    Semi finals do have neutral officials. Probably why they are midweek to free up some referees and doesn’t take them away from weekend duties. Quarter finals have never had neutral officials. Silly comment whoever posted that earlier. Can’t beat a semi or a final under lights. Adds to the atmosphere. And probably get more support.

    Holmans 5 -3 st just Good result today youngsters played superb and weren’t going to be bullied also Dave Dodson outstanding refereeing only one boss out there in the middle and his surname never ended in Curnow. Great goal for st just youngster as well but after conceding an early poor goal we hit 4 to bounce back to lead 4-1 ht After the break we started to get a little complacent around the pitch and allowed st just back to 4-3 with 20 to go it could of been a difficult afternoon however the lads had more in the tank & with 8 mins to go put us back at 5-3 to see the game out. Off the bottom for the first time this season let’s hope the lads can now catch Redruth Utd with 3 pts adrift & 5 games in hand many more points are needed.

    Trelawney League Cups Cancelled?

    I also think people tend to be more cautious these days of not wanting to play on a wet surface, about 9/10 years ago almost anything was playable. Too easy to call a game off.

    I have just read through the rule book of ‘the club’s league’: The Whirlwind Sports Trelawny League 2017/18 (I’ve had a bit of spare time). According to Rule 19a if two thirds of the club’s secretaries contact the league then they must hold a Special General Meeting. If this is done then we can address this issue. More disappointingly, the rule 19b states that the management committee can call a Special General Meeting at any time: surely this decision warranted a SGM? Furthermore, rule 20a states that any rule changes must be made at an AGM or SGM (Special General Meeting). Is the introduction of double headers and the cancellation of cups not a rule change, once again, to the best of my knowledge, this hasn’t been discussed at an AGM or SGM. Lastly, rule 23a states that dissolution of the competition shall be by resolution approved at a SGM by a majority of three quarters of the members present. Surely the cancellation of all of the cup competitions is a dissolution of competition; I reiterate that no SGM - to the best of my knowledge - had been called. I see the Trelawny League has ‘liked’ one reply to the post on Facebook. This tells me that you are aware of the replies and stir that this has caused. So could you please reply to my comment? I intend to write to all of the club’s secretaries and propose a SGM, would it be easier if you emailed them or shall I? Thanks

    Trelawney League Cups Cancelled?

    Bloody hell guys are we all forgetting that the heavens opened up early December and no one has shut the bloody doors since. I understand the frustration you all must be feeling but to blame the trelawney guys the refs etc, need a bit of calm here. Over the last two months no one has really thought about a cup game they’ve only surely thought about any frigging game🤪 We have to sometimes bite the bullet only one thing to blame here the pissing rain👍

    Junior cup semi-finals draw

    It also helps when finding a pitch to play on, most of the top grounds will be in use every Saturday so weekdays are less likely to disrupt fixtures and give the host club some extra income making it a more attractive proposition for them. Then of course there is the referee situation, three officials on a Saturday would basically mean that two other games didn't get one.

    With no game today we took in the quarter final of the Junior Cup in what turned out to be a 13 goal thriller at St Stephen. Have to say that St Stephen were worthy winners over what looked like a depleted Holywell (only 12 players). The home side looked like they were going to score at will in the first half and had an early goal disallowed and missed numerous other chances before going in to the interval 3-1 up. With the visitors playing with only one up front St Stephen's experienced centre half pairing of Joe Stone and Lee Whetters were rarely troubled. The floodgates opened in a second half 'goal fest' and witnessed 9 goals - a further 6 for St Stephen - inc. 2 penalties and 3 for Holywell including arguably the goal of the game for their 2nd on 81 mins. Holywell were also reduced to 10 men late in the game for St Stephen's first penalty on 70 mins. Overall St Stephens were always in control and were never threatened apart from a late flourish from Holywell in second half injury time. Good luck to St Stephens in the semi-final.

    Don' really get the issue with St Day Res v mawnan not being played. We've played you away, we were not short of players, I, yes I posted on Twitter this morning the pitch was soft but a qualified referee deemed it to soft and unsafe for players....if players seriously hurt themselves or it was called of at 2:30pm you would be on here bloody moaning again. If we did not want to play we would not of spent £350 on that pitch alone this week. Sorry it just was not happening. Weve lost enough money already from our clubhouse (which pays our pitch renovations) through no games so sorry for us wanting to keep our club afloat. Anyway what' the issue we do not have any cup games to fit in so we got loads of bloody time to play.😂😂😂😂 Any concerns or if the above does not answet anyones concerns call me my number is on our website. I'm there again 9am tomorrow can give you a tour around if anyone does not believe us. Cheers Mark Leah 🖤💛🖤💛🖤💛🖤💛

    Ivybridge 1-5 Parkway A routine win for Parkway as they go marching on. A couple of cracking goals from Mike Smith and Ryan Lane. Also, who was Ivybridge's number 12? I'm pretty sure I saw him in Pizza Hut last night.....and it showed!

    For anybody interested on money spent on the Hall for Cornwall project. Below is who has contributed and how much. Article copied from Cornwall Live website. Hall For Cornwall project overview The project cost is £19.8m. To date, it has raised just over £18m; nearly £15m has been secured from outside Cornwall. Funds have been secured from the following; • Arts Council England: £5m • Cornwall Council: £3.19m • European Regional Development Fund (ERDF): £2.1m • Heritage Lottery Fund: £2.85m • HM Treasury: £2m • Local Enterprise Partnership: £2m • Trusts and Foundations/donations: £1m £1.7 million is outstanding and this will be raised through a combination of private fundraising, crowdfunding and via trusts and foundations. Recent support has come from private and corporate donations, including the Alex Patrick Trust.

    I'm led to believe that Holmans offered a qualified referee (although he had not registered this year) to take charge of the game, St Just declined. St Day declined the offer from Mawnan to reverse the fixture... That's two more games that have been lost [needlessly]. There will be more still, I'm sure. With the recent news coming from the league, you would think that the club's will do what they can to try and get these games played. The most important thing at this level is ensuring that the players get a game, surely? My personal opinion, again.

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Got to say that on current form, Spurs are cutting it with the best of them. I have said many times, Kane, Eriksen, Lloris, Deli Ali, Son, these are top quality players. Top quality. I still think their defenders are a weak link, Sanchez and Aurier are just “getting away with it”. A bit like Jones and Smalling at Man Utd. I don’t rate them. But as an overall team, confidence is high, and they are playing well. I think they deserved to beat Juve, and my money is on a comfortable win back at Wembley. They still have to win a trophy though, and that is basically how they will finally be judged. Nothing for 10 years, a team that is “capable”, but they have to deliver something. I am not convinced they can. Long way to go, and twists and turns all the way.

    Trelawney League Cups Cancelled?

    Are we to assume that all Trelawny clubs will now withdraw from the Junior Cup in order to ease this unfathomable fixture pile up...?
  31. 2 points
    Shocking. So many complications from league deciders to clubs losing trade and money. We’ve already lost enough trade over the past few months, vital money that keeps the club running and pays our bar staff. The loss of cups means that finals or semi finals won’t be hosted and further trade lost. We will be lucky if we don’t have to let any of our staff go because of the lack of games. Teams pay a fee to be entered into the leagues and cups, plus insurance. What is going to happen with that money? Are we going to see any return? As a player or manager, there are some teams that now only have cups to play for. They will lose all motivation and I bet some don’t fulfil their league fixtures because they have nothing to play for. This could have a massive say on promotion/relegation but worse, it could lead to clubs folding. The Trelawny League have done a great job so far. But this is completely outrageous and it makes a mockery of football in West Cornwall and the Trelawny League. We are only in February. Time has been lost but there are many more realistic and sensible options. I do not see any other league governing bodies hitting the panic button like this. I’ve been extremely supportive of the league but this does not put them in a good light. Josh McDonald

    Why not just play league games and see how it looks at end of March after 7 more Saturdays.With some double headers and possible Sunday games and evening games,teams may still get the cup games in.Nothing to lose by waiting especially in league 1 where only 12 teams and Hayle only got 7 left.?
  33. 2 points
    It’s time more evening matches were played early in the season. Teams play friendlies early and then have hardly any league matches, so then play more friendlies. Surely teams could have played 10 league games by end of October. Get the evening matches in On another note, pitches aren’t played on when there is mud these days. Used to love those games. Sliding around everywhere. Sometimes they are waterlogged which is fair enough but I’m sure teams have called games off to save pitches only for it to then rain for weeks after and get waterlogged anyway. Anyway. That’s all for next season now I guess. Madness to get rid of cups. They are all that the majority of clubs left, had to play for this season. Getting a cup run going keeps your season alive for most clubs. Surely playing the nonsense that is double headers in the league would’ve been enough to catch up.

    Never-Pay-Never

    NLS - 17th February 2018

    and the FA (who over ruled the League on this last time round) won't allow a ground share in Torquay of more than 1 year because of the distance home fans are required to travel. That only leaves enforced relegation to a league where local grounds are sufficient to enable TCFC to share. Also don't forget the ownership issue. Masters won't be the owner next season unless he gets another mug to pump money in that he can spend. Having recovered all his losses from the Helical pay off, he isn't about to start spending any of his own money if he is not guaranteed to get it back. It's beginning to sound like no ground, no owner...........no club!

    Don't be daft, plenty of time left to play league and cup games! Just need to pull their fingers out and get some games fixtured in! The didn't even consult the teams, 'your league' they say every meeting yet when a decision is to be made about 'your league' no one asks! You need to get your head out the clouds old boy and think about what effect this will have on Cornish football, no prancing around worrying about what someone says when they want to speak the truth!

    Bodmin Town

    And if the Environment Agency hadn't buggered the footpaths and drainage up Bodmins pitch would be playable. From the Bodmin Facebook page: Just for the record, apart from the horrendous amount of rain we have suffered recently, the fact that thousands of gallons of rain water is running onto Priory Park from the recent new pathways laid by the Environment Agency on the eastern side of the ground, this has greatly increased the amount of water getting into the ground. It literally has been thousands of gallons a day and we have it on film to prove it. Engineers have looked at the flooding issues and work will shortly commence to stop the water running off Priory Road and Athelstand Park on the pitch. Thought you should know the full reasons for the missed fixtures.
