  1. Myself, Dave and the other Moderators have discussed this at depth... CornwallFootballForum.com is a independent non-profit community football website first created over 10 years ago.Since then technology has changed, users visiting the site has significantly grown to over 1000 unique users a day. This has meant costs associated with running the site has increased as we moved to a dedicated server.In order to keep the site free from costs to the members we tried an advertising model. Unfortunately, this hasn't worked as expected. So, we are asking members if they will please donate to help run the site non profit for another 12 months. In the event that funds needed are not raised we sadly might have to close the forum at the end of 30 days if the target is not met. We are asking if members would be kind enough to donate please and keep the site going! https://www.gofundme.com/cornwallfootballforum

    There are no added costs on top. The cost is for one year. When we first started 10 years the site was very much a hobbiest site and the majority of people logged on via laptops it only cost £5pm. If you can remember a couple of years ago the site use to crash every Saturday when we were overloaded by visitors. So we had to move to a server that coped with demand as more people can view the site via smartphones and tablets. Unlike profit sites like Facebook and Google we 100% do not sell you private data to advertisers. We also don't have a advertising department behind us like the online newspapers. Many thanks to you that have already donated we are already over 10%!
  23. Very heavy Atlantic rainfall hitting Cornwall at midday Rob. Predicted 14mm
  24. Real blood and thunder match between Redruth and Holmans. Well worth the donation. 1-1 at half time and all to play for in the second half, clear cut goal missed by Redruth at the start. Some real challenges going in and to be honest Referee did well to control the match as it could of got a bit out of hand on a slippy pitch. Winner came 3 minutes before time when a corner hit the head of Matt Mitchell. Entertaining match to see the least. FT 2-1
