    Good luck to Dobwalls, always sad hearing bad luck stuff like this when a good club has worked hard to improve their facilities over the last few years. Hope it doesn’t take too long to sort the damage out ⚽️👍

    THE LEAGUE THAT WOULDN'T DIE

    I feel the whole situation has been dealt with relatively well considering. Both leagues are still running, both leagues have enough teams in them to run in accordance to their own constitutions, while both leagues have taken a huge hit from the teams moving into the St Pirans league. It is a shame that both Duchy and Trelawney leagues have taken a battering with teams stepping up, but isn’t that all part of football? Teams that do well want to progress. Would all those teams from lower leagues have reached the ECPL or Combo, who knows. But they have taken their opportunity to move up. A lot of hard work behind the scenes has been done by all committee members from all the leagues over the previous months to try and find the best outcome for Cornish football. They can’t keep everyone happy and never will. I tip my hat to all who have had to work tirelessly to make this happen

    THE LEAGUE THAT WOULDN'T DIE

    Are you aware that you come across as a very bitter, hypocritical old man? You complain about the FA stripping your league of clubs and yet, as stated above, you didn’t hesitate to pillage the Duchy League of clubs to protect your own interests. The same can be said of the combination league, they’ve just been less bitter publicly childish about it all! The actions of your league show that you’re no different to the “fat cats” you so publicly despise. No consideration for the future of Cornish football or the bigger picture. You could have come out of this looking quite good had you done the logical thing and merge with Duchy Prem and take on a role within the Duchy Committee. As it turns out, you only come across as a spiteful, childish antique who refused to change for the greater good of local RECREATIONAL football in Cornwall.

    It really does make me chuckle to read posts on here about players being blamed because Helston are apparently paying mega bucks which is the big magnet. Everybody harps on like this is a new thing!! Do you all have very short memories or just being naïve? Money has been splashed and/or kit been paid for in all my years in local football - it really is nothing new. Does anyone really think that players will travel 30 or 40 miles a couple of times a week to play for a town or village for which they have no connection or affiliation with for the love of it. Just look at the old photos in every club depicting their historical success and you will find "strangers" in each and every one of them. This year it is Helston, last year it was St. Austell and Bodmin and in previous years it was Porthleven, St. Blazey, Falmouth in the Trevor Mewton era. Penryn in the WC Rowe era - always happens always will. Get real fellas.

    Deal done!

    The three clubs that you mentioned have; Settled management teams. Established infrastructure and solid committees /boards. Clear strategic visions. Their own grounds. Early days for the new owners and management I know, but Truro currently have none of these. Look at Taunton where Rocky Neal, Matt Wright, Shane White, Ed Palmer and Ryan Brett (all ex Truro) are thriving at a successful and stable club. They carried on seamlessly after Leigh Robinson and Michael Meaker left due to an effective structure and strategy being in place. The quality of their recruitment and retention again this summer underliines this. Spoke to a member of the Truro squad last season (who I won't name) who told me that it was a NL South club that was on occasions run like a Sunday morning pub side. One example he gave was that at one match they didn't have enough socks available.

    Fixtures

    A DRAFT version of the West Division fixtures was sent to those clubs yesterday for a them to check for any errors, omissions, etc. The clubs have a week to get back to me with any corrections that may be necessary. Unfortunately without the use of the Full-Time fixture tool these have had to be drafted by hand and this has involved late nights all week so I'm sure there will be some corrections needed. The finalised version of the West fixtures should be out in about 10 days time. ANY fixtures you may see at this time are to be treated as provisional. A start has been made on the East fixtures and I hope to have these out to the clubs for review by the end of the coming week. It's a bit of a tortuous process so be patient people!

    Marazion - A Club that’s folded more times then a cowboy in a saloon bar playing Texas hold-em!!! 4 division jump they must have had a speech of ‘Churchilian’ proportions to be accepted i am still of the opinion the 5 remaining clubs in the Combo if absorbed into Trelawny Premier would have made it the most competitive evenly matched league it could be with minimum impact and clear promotion and relegation to St Piran but sadly that doesn’t seem to have ever been an option! Now we have this hybrid league thrown together with potentially mis matched sides that originated from over 5 divisions! Anyway it is what it is so no going back now!!! Will grab the popcorn and look for the entertaining scorelines on a Saturday night

    At St Stephen that goal mouth/area issue has been solved. That's now the best part of the pitch. Good sized changing rooms, nice big pitch, stand? St Cleer has nothing wrong with it at all, neither does Veryan. Padstow is alright, Gerrans is also alright (although they both have slightly smaller changing rooms and Gerrans has a slope and very open, but they can't help location). It's grassroots football after all.

    Rumours godolphins terrific signings are Dinamo Minsk prolofic striker Maxim Tsigalko, Falkirk CM Mark Kerr and full back Mike Duff from Cheltenham and are in negotiations with free agent Taribo West. If rumours are true surely Godolphin must be title favourites!

    Steve you do not need to apologise to me, your work is so normally faultless, but I will remember this when we need a favour 😂😂. Sleep is so overrated anyway. Look forward to seeing update fixtures and thank you for what you have done, I'm looking forward to the new league, different ideas, slightly different and the extra funding available to us clubs etc. A change is as good as a rest as they say. Thank you

    Playing a whole season at torquay infront of one man and his dog. Pretty much sealed relegation. What a decision that was from the club. Home games are always vital in staying up. Signing players like river Allen etc who is actually a good player then just getting rid again , how are you meant to be build a team with that attitude The club just seem to roll from one disaster to another. Give it 4 or 5 years they will prob be back in the peninsula league while clubs like Helston and parkway march on past them

    Jordan Copp becomes the latest confirmed Parkway signing after joining from Truro City. Not confirmed if all are staying, but with the signing of Bastin alongside Trott and Annear, would four "Jordans" in a squad be some sort of record for senior football in the UK?

    League set up next season!

    4 divisions of 12-13 teams would be fine if an extra few cups were added. Potentially similar to the Trelawny league where there’s a separate cup for each division. Gives sides more to play for and keeps teams interested for longer. Having 20 league games isn’t enough, a side that gets knocked out in the first round of the cup and then spends all season mid-table wold have something more to play for if there were at least 2/3 cups to make up the games.

    THE LEAGUE THAT WOULDN'T DIE

    So here, in a nutshell, is the whole problem. Step 7 HAD to happen in Cornwall as determined by the FA. ECPL and CCL could have run the step 7 league but didn't want to change. If they had, there would have been no St Pirans league and none of the recent upheaval. But - we've always done it like that, why should we change 🙄

    Says it all really, confirmation of our earlier post and although not supporters of A.F.C. St Austell in the best interest of local Cornish football we wish them well ! Maybe we should not be taking too much notice of someone who advocated throwing Ludgvan out of the league when they experienced their problems last season and who thrives on putting the boot in when a team has a run of bad luck.

    ECPL AGM

    I can understand why you might feel a little aggrieved Paul, but the situation was not a great one for anyone, ECPL or Duchy League. I also see your point about a 16-team all-Cornish League, but some applications were received later than the Plymouth sides who had already been elected at the SGM. In hindsight, it may have been best to leave all elections until the AGM, but I understand why the ECPL moved quickly to ensure there was a league of substance. Personally, 18-teams is probably too many, but only time will tell. We're up for it anyway! It would be a shame if the ECPL and Duchy League couldn't put differences aside and agree on a promotion and relegation agreement, for the long-term sake of East Cornwall football generally. Clear progression through the leagues ought to be available if clubs want it. The restructure of Step 6 and 7 has had a huge impact on all leagues, but while I think it may take a few seasons to level off and for clubs to find their level, I believe we should embrace it. The ECPL and Duchy are still strong, with many members. I think the real loser here, is the P&WDL whose numbers are diminishing season on season, along with the quality arguably.

    ECPL AGM

    The ecpl secretary cancelled any agreement last season. I would expect the situation to be discussed but, in my opinion, ecpl members have muddied the waters by accepting two Plymouth sides into the league and making it 18 strong when it was an ideal opportunity to make the league 16 and all Cornish as the FA wanted. It has also been suggested that someone at the ecpl actually approached Duchy clubs encouraging them to join which i think is out of order and doesn't bode well for future relations.

    From what Guido has heard in the old ale house, NJ was being fully lined up by the Illogan Committee to take over the first team but winning the Combo Cup put a spanner in the works. As always just a rumour.

    Why?

    It can only be about their egos - there is nothing to be won at the end of the day. Even those clubs that take promotion, there is nothing financially to win (unless they turn professional and join the football league - so it's just about their egos. Hopefully winning matches too.

    What the hell is happening at a fine club like St Austell it seems a right mess all the players have left now the management has gone ,they want to do all they can to get Phil Lafferty back there he will get the club back on track.They are on about putting the reserves into the 1st team these are just young lads and need to be brought on gradually . I wish St Austell all the best and can sort out this mess they are in .

    Leave our player Dan Perryman alone he likes it at the G and he was the best thing to happen to the G last season and the performances improved when he rolled into town hopefully the G will have a better season i think Dan will be up there in the leading goalscorer charts .Heard Bodmin will try signing Luke Cloke from Torpoint and Curtis Damerell from Millbrook heard this from a Bodmin supporter who reckonised Smokie while out on our walk .

    Liam Eddy is a 30 goal season striker every year and he will propbarly win the league for Helston with the ammount of goals he will score and if Helston want to pay silly money thats there business and people are just jealous that they can afford it .I would like to see who St Austell will get to replace Eddy i think it will be either the Torpoint player Cloke Or Liskeards Lorenz
