    ECL AGM propsal

    Unless a team asks to go down for geographical or other reasons?
  3. Roll on roll off will help introduce and youngsters and retain the older players, at a time when many clubs are struggling for numbers. Some will be against it, some will see the benefits. As I see it, if the league doesn’t move with the times it will be on its last legs in 12 months’ time. At the rate we are going there will be one division of 12-14 clubs left
  4. Unfortunately not senior football any more - anything below step 7 is “recreational” football.
  5. When I say vanish I mean in terms of quality. I think one division is almost a certainty.
  6. The danger is that ECPL could vanish. For me, many clubs will either slip back to Duchy Premier level or take the plunge at Step 7. I see a lot of casualties after the first season where travel costs kick in for a county-wide league.
  7. Sad to see Pensilva go, but take my hat off to them for managing to finish the season after such a struggle
  8. Good luck for the future Brad, hope it works out.
  9. Agree, players don’t want to travel these days, which is what I think will kill the step 7 league, or at best lead to a massive turnover of teams
  10. Their Twitter account confirms a return to P&D; shame, as I was very impressed with them in pre-season when we played them. Hopefully they’ll clarify their reasons, wonder if the level of travelling was an issue? I have grave concerns for the future of this level of football between Duchy and the new county-wide step 7 league.
  11. Sad news! Mike has done a great job for the Duchy League for many years and will be a tough (hopefully not impossible) act to follow! Thanks Mike
  12. Sounds about right. I can only speak from my knowledge of the ECPL but I can see that weakening the league massively, effectively dropping it back down to Duchy Premier standard if the likes of Torpoint, Saltash, St Austell and Tavi weren’t in it. Also, the step 7 league will involve a huge amount of travelling, cost and commitment from clubs and players to get from one end of the county to the other - I can see there being multiple casualties at the end of the first season when clubs have experienced the demands.
  13. The silence is deafening Rich...
