    I know wearne was cup tied for the senior Cup, earlier in the season. Now waiting for the new excuse for playing him. It would be unlike Falmouth to load up for the bigger games 😅

    In that case it would appear that fixtures would be more localised and would not involve any more safaris into deepest Devon. Remains to be seen.

    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.

    Perhaps all Cornish Sports Clubs should ask Cornwall Council for financial help. If they help S4C, this will set a precedent.

    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.

    I'm liking this. I'll definitely be going to the game at Bickland Park. And I'll try and make the game the night before at Liskeard.

    To much organised youth football, they've been playing 10 years before they get to that age, and with dads telling them to drop off, go wide and all the rest of what I've heard at these games ....no wonder they're fed up with it.
    W used to put a couple of jumpers down and away we went for 6 odd hours a day ....dreaming of the day when we could play in an organised league.
    Then Saturday was match of the day ...nothing else, today you can watch every game played in the world, the mystery is gone with that scenario.
    A serious number of teams / clubs to fold yet I fear.

    A stadium is a sports ground with tiers of seats for spectators does Treyew Road qualify or not that is the 6 million dollar sorry pound question. I believe Newquay AFC have a stadium at Mount Wise.

    Wealdstone take one of the best away support in the League.
    100 Stone fans there last Saturday,which is just about a quarter of that crowd.
    You would'nt be able to find Truro supporters in a 10,000 ,S4C.Let alone create an atmosphere.
    Treyew Road is not a Stadium.
    Its a patched up football ground.
    Well ,at least until the end of the season.
