    7 up from Div 4... if that happens it's ridiculous 

    Okay so what alternatives  is there ,   it is very easy to criticise  on a forum , but I don't  see many putting their hands up to take positions  on the league committee  ,  , The club's  are the league but in uncertain times were football is concerned descions  have to be made  some are not always favourable , with the new league coming in the 2019 season with some combo teams joining a new Cornwall league , there will be a lot of comings and goings over the next couple of years  , in my opinion  it will probable take 3 to 5 seasons to settle down .

  2. Bd there is no easy fix for teams folding  , and it will level out eventually  from my playing days in the old west penwith league  the only teams left are in no order are St,Buryan , St.just , Ludgvan St, Ives and recently Penzance reserves , mousehole and Pendeen , Madron  .  And this was from two leagues , which those in the Amor shield were either a reserve side or third team .  Is interest fading yes , volunteers  are either getting older or get fed up being taken for granted , work new sports and families are making demands on people , there are plenty of reasons  for lack of interest  in the modern game . Us old boys  wouldn't take a weekend off for a stag do  and most got married in the off season , Xmas shopping  on a match day....whats that about , society has changed  there is less money about employers don't pay for time off through a sports injury   more self employed . Hats off to all that are involved at any level of local football  , it isnt easy , been there done that got the T shirt   , it would be great  if it picked up but sadly in my own personal opinion it will get worse before it levels out . It is just not football , Rugby , cricket Darts and snooker teams are folding  even euchre teams .

    I personally don’t like the idea. As for a player getting ‘over enthusiastic’ if he gets wound up that much on the pitch he needs to come off to cool down for his and other players own safety he has some serious issues and shouldn’t be on the pitch anyway and the manager should let him get sent, or drag him. 

    Rob meant as an example  , I think you will find when first brought in many were sceptical  about how long it would take for changes but it hasn't  slowed the game down  if you are so against it the club's need to say No , but in my personal opinion  it works , if your league agrees to it and you don't like the idea there is nothing stopping you from using your subs as normal  or as your manager sees fit , a plus side is you can give younger players a feel for the adult game  but if they are getting pushed around a bit you can take them off and get a chance to talk to them and bring them on later  , but it is your league  you get to decide  , opinions  is what keeps football alive .

    Hi buddy loads of walking footie in Cornwall teams I know of are is st austell, truro, tregonny, newquay, st Ives, lanevit, saints (also st austell) torpoint.

    We are currently in meetings with the ccfa regarding a tournament in July in Bodmin and a steering group are meeting on Mon to sort it out. Ha a tournament last Sunday between just 3 teams but was a right blast.  Feel free to contact me on staustellwalkingfootball@outlook.com


    (Just re read your message I know ferry and your group lol st Ives but may a well leave the reply go others)

    Terry is going as well , I know there are a few things to iron out ,e.g. rules ECT all positive at present  , things moving on we did have a guest today on holiday from Birmingham  he was telling us how big it has become up there , I think we are a bit behind at present but with people like yourself , Terry and others  it should be a bright future .

  5. Already  in use in the combo   for a couple of seasons ,  gets more players involved and doesn't hold up play as the ref has the numbers before the game  , ideal to replace a player who is say getting over enthusiastic  , he can be taken off and the manager can calm him down and put him on later , been a good idea  and hope it stays .

  6. Terry was going to look at the tournament last week , I was hoping to go but personal reasons prevented me ,  he has also been in contact with  the fa , so things are moving along , several of our group would like to play against other teams and hopefully soon that could become reality , anyone interested in giving it a go contact details are at the top of the post , the ages vary from 50 to seventies , great fun   .

    A good player but I certainly can see why they aren't renewing his contract. Arsenal can be quite good going forward if they all start linking up well together.

    Carzola was a great player but unfortunately  injury has curtailed  his career  ,  Arsenal have stuck with a few players over previous  seasons that have had long term injuries  e.g. Diaby  , at one stage Carzola  might have not been able to walk let alone kick a ball  with the infection in the bone  .

    To the detractors out there.

    Think what would have happen to the club if our lease was near enough up.

    We would be out on our ear looking for a ground and playing Combo or Tewlawny football as we would not be able to compete with what Mousehole could offer.

    I think it is awful that Mousehole went behind our backs first and only came face to face as when they realise their ground does not fit Chapman's ambitions.

    But you already play trelawney football  , that is what your reserves play in ,

    Real classy.Showing your real colours.

    I hope Kane gets injured in the World Cup friendly,and gets ruled out of the competition.

    He can have a nice break for the start of next season.

    Then you with the rest of the Goons and bin-dippers,can look forward to the World Cup,with Henderson leading the side from midfield,with one-leg Welbeck up front,maybe even old Jack Wheelchair could get called up.


    Awww diddums , did I upset you?  , if you can't take a bit of stick  don't give it out , Kane the best English striker , hope he gets a hatfull  of goals for England , true colours yep I have a sense of humour ,  Jack Wheelchair ,ohh  I am offended ( not )  doesn't deserve to go ,  Welbeck hard working not a lot of goals , one legged , I am so upset 😇   , England world cup squad is the best there is to pick with only 33% English players available from the premiere league , shock , horror   . Hope they do well but the odds are stacked against them , I am afraid 🙈🙉🙊 SSS you are becoming an old grump , lighten up man . Lifes to short 😸😸😸😸😸

    So it looks like its going to be **** Emery.

    Well he seems to have all the correct credentials.

    Sevilla,never won an away match when he was in charge for a season.

    A big bonus he speaks better English than Kane aaaaaaa  after every sentence 😹

    Perranporth are Champions

    Congratulations to Perranporth  , the table doesn't   lie ,  been a good season for the combo some good football played  and most teams have good players , the league and officials that run it get a lot of stick , but over the past couple of seasons the standard of football has improved  , thanks to all involved without you there is no football , will get withdrawal symptoms next week 😇
