    We have nothing to lose in applying. The very worst that can happen is we get relegated and end up in Trelawny Prem, where we would be any way. At least we can say we tried.

    Penzance manager-less again

    As much as I feel this a horrendous decision for both Penzance Football Club & Cornish Football as a whole, Del Boy is right. Nowhere near enough people putting themselves forward to help run these clubs. It’s not just Penzance. Falmouth, Porthleven, St Blazey, Newquay & probably several others are struggling to find volunteers or committee members to keep clubs going & push them forward. It’s quite simple, players just want to have game of football & then go home. They don’t give a toss about who cuts the grass & marks the pitch, who washes the kit, who provides the kit, who runs the tea hut or mans the gate, where does the money come from to pay affiliation fees to the leagues. Unless they start to realise they have to do something, more clubs will be selling themselves to anyone with a few quid, or worse, folding completely. unfortunately, not enough people care any more. Cornish football is in a bad way !!!

    If you're going to have a pop I don't mind, I'm a big boy and can take it but at least have the decency to 1. Use your proper name instead of hiding behind a username and 2. Get at least 1 fact right. Dave covers most of it above and I'm not going to repeat again here what has been stated on various threads across the forum and on Facebook. Please do some research, you may then have a more accurate idea of how we ended up where we are in all this.

    Combo Clubs looking for new managers

    Why and who underrates him? Think it is common knowledge throughout local football that Steve is and has always been a top man and top manager who has that extremely rare quality - loyalty. Wasn't a bad player either mind.

    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 ⚽️👍

    New players and ones departing

    Why are you asking me if the management get paid - you know it all don't you ? According to this thread alone - you know that: - Parkway are being paid 5 times more than other squads in the league (some teams don’t even pay). (Meaning most teams' budget is £600 per game) Big LOL - Jordan Bentley, Billy Palfrey, River Allen & Tyler Harvey has all been made lucrative offers from Plymouth Parkway in recent days. - Club have supposed to have made a name your price policy to Andrew Neal which he has declined to stay at Taunton. - 4 Players are on £250 plus so there is nearly a 1/3 gone already. (All very laughable statements) - Tiegan Rosenquest being a Tavistock boy is going back to Langsford Park and also heard Mike Smith is joining him. - Tavistock will reportedly have the 2nd biggest budget in the league. (LOL - really?) - Winning the league is the minimum requirement coming from the Bolitho hierarchy this season. (If that's the minimum, what more could they do?) -  Club have invested a lot of money into the team and weren’t happy to finish 2nd to team who pay out approximately £500 a game, the cup win did lighten the thoughts however. - Gates and Senior figures is where the money comes from. (I am interested in how many pass through the gate at home games and what the shortfall is for a league budget of £114,000 to be raised for your proposed £3k a game) (Oh and Parkway won the cup this year, so add some cup games into the mix to increase the budget) . Just in the league if 500 people actually paid £6 to get into the ground (they wouldn't) that arguably is enough to cover the home game budget. You're telling me "Senior Figures" then pay £57,000 in per year to cover players wages (league games only) then in addition pay for travel, ground maintenance, upgrading club house, and all the other stuff that goes with running a football club? All in all, you must be on the board at Parkway to know so much inside information. You know the budget, you know what players are being paid (if 4 are on £250 EACH), you know the disappointment and objectives for next season and are in the loop with the transfer targets and what they are being offered. You sir are a dreamer and to quote you one last time - maybe you are the one needing the "wake up call". Thanks for the entertainment though

    St Piran update

    I understand where you're coming from and you obviously have a strong affinity to the ECPL. I don't know what you know of the process that we've gone through to get to the point we're at now and I'm certainly not going to run through it here in great detail. Feel free to get in touch if you want the brief. You could make the argument that nothing has changed yet everything has changed. I would make the following three comments/observations. 1. The 'suits' you refer to are the various committees and boards within the FA. Whether you like it or not they govern the game all the way down and if they say this is 'the structure that we want in place' then that is what happens. The changes to the NLS have been going on for a few years and are now reaching there conclusion. They were signed off by the FA Council and are not optional. This coming season will see pretty much all of the changes implemented with some fine tuning to come a year from now. 2. The policy is that ANY club can start at the very bottom and have a clear path to the very top. The entry point to the NLS is at Step 7 and these are County based leagues so not to have one is not an option. During the early discussions (I was out of the country at the time so this is what I've been told) the solution we now have was suggested but not taken for whatever reason. Also, the Combination and ECPL Leagues were given the option of getting involved at Step 7. For whatever reason(s), and I'm sure they were strong and valid reasons for each of those leagues, they declined the opportunity. Some months later the embryonic committee picked up the reins with the one division solution which started with strong interest which sadly waned in the east. At that point we had to change tack to ensure that the clubs in the east had good opportunities to progress and we were fortunate to get our amended plan sanctioned. 3. In essence nothing has changed as regards the ECPL. I don't wish to speak too much out of turn here but they have always had a plan that in general terms reduced the ECPL down to one division as a result of the Step 7 changes and Ken at the meeting last week clearly had a plan for the way ahead for his league. Nothing new in this at all. No bandwagon to jump on, the policy is passed down for implementation and somebody has to do it. You may not like the solution and that is your prerogative. The only sure thing is that if you keep banging your head against this wall all you're going to get is a headache similar to the one I've had for the last week.

    In my time Paul, the constitution was posted on the notice board in the clubhouse and was circulated at several AGMs when minor changes/additions were discussed and voted upon. I still have a copy and - as a Life Member - will do my best to ensure that the constitution is precisely followed.

    Official statement from Penzance AFC

    The trouble on here is that every word gets dissected, then comments are taken out of context and printed in local press. I mean, why the hell should anyone from the two clubs involved have to respond to the questions from some random Bodmin supporter (cue howls of derision). (as JM replied in a previous post elsewhere, 'polite response'). Penzance and Mousehole will be merging. We are working extremely hard to get it done in time for next season. All I ask is that our players and supporters give us the time to do this. The merger, not a takeover, or a sell out, will benefit football in all Penwith as any surplus from the two first teams becoming one will naturally play somewhere else and boost local teams.

    Most of our current squad and management team are Cornwall based. As this is a draft document we have not agreed anything so Saltash, Launceston and Callington will still have to play a part in the final decision as we are completely opposed to this decision. We are definitely opposed to this decision as it’s ridiculous. Saltash have ambition, budget and Plymouth based players and are geographically closer on a main arterial route, we would have to pass them to play games in the east which the league stated wouldn’t happen. we don’t travel as the crow flies and a poor mapping system using longitudinal and latitudinal coordinates isn’t acceptable in this day and age without looking at all other obstacles clubs have including routes, travel and additional cost.

    I should go a bit careful teflon if I was you, as your statement that you can say things true or untrue because its a forum, is so wide of the mark, its ridiculous. You on the forum are subject to the same civil law of libel as anyone else, forum or not. What is even worse is the the burden of proof for libel is less than the criminal law, it is 'on the balance of probabilities' not 'beyond reasonable doubt'. So as you say, you sometimes repeat comments you hear from people in the game. Unfortunately that is no excuse to libel, should there be any. You also seem to know all the financial matters from Penzance to Plymouth plus everything else, so you get around. Someone might think that on the balance of probabilities, which only has to be 51%, that you are making some of it up. You cannot tell 'porkies' about individuals without risking libel and the web site operators would not be able to keep your details secret. By all mean views, comments, ideas, criticism , but naming people or organisations you are on a tightrope.

    St Piran League AGM

    The AGM is on Monday 10th June. The Officers were appointed about 6 months ago for an 18 month period and their names were well publicised. The season will start on 17th August. The cup draw will be made on the evening. The constitution of the two (East and West) divisions was publicised a couple of weeks ago. The fixtures will be completed over the next couple of weeks. The SWPL fixtures only came out yesterday and these were needed before ours could be progressed.

    Porthleven Football Club are delighted to announce & welcome Jamie Thomson & Graham Blake to the club as the new joint management team of the Peninsula league team for the coming season. This will be Jamie’s first venture into management & he will be ably supported By Graham who will be leaving his role as manager of Helston’s combination league team to join us. They come to us with a long term plan that we are sure will benefit Porthleven Football Club for a long time to come. Good Luck Guys.

    By robbing the Duchy League again presumably. Your concern for football in the county doesn't seem to go any lower than the east cornwall league, pretty much the same mindset as you accuse the FA of having.

    Penzance would never HAVE folded. Clubs go through bad times. Take Falmouth for example, on the way back. Why not keep both clubs as separate entities but just share Penlee Park? Both Reserve teams could share Trungle Park which might not appease everyone but it keeps both club's histories intact.

    It’s a great ground to host a final. Let’s hope you get a team together again soon that’s befitting of the ground. Best of luck from me, things aren’t the same without a good St Blazey team.

    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

    Distinct lack of respect for the club they claim to support / represent. Innuendos, veiled threats of future happenings, accusations of past misdemeanours including 9% missing takings, with that sort of thing aired on a public forum what kind of support is that. If 9% takings fraudently went missing in any club we had anything to do with, it would be straight to the police for them to sort it out and certainly not aired on a public forum. We can't help feeling a little sorry for St Just Football Club, they deserve better.

    Sad to say but with the ground grading gone is the Combo league now not in all sense and purposes an extension of the Trelawny League (Premier + so to speak) without the problematic travelling of the new St Piran. Over 50 years of history sadly sat in a slightly awkward place as a stand-alone single division between the trelawny & St Piran now without the entry requirements that elevated its stature above FHFL & Mining Leagues of days gone past. A positive step to reduce the teams to 16 but if in the eyes of the CCFA the Combo and ECPL are classed as ‘recreational’ leagues so why are they also competing in the Senior Cup???

    Personally, I think there should be a 3rd, "Intermediate" Cup between SC & JC. This would give more teams the chance of winning something and - if structured carefully - would give more 2nd and/or 3rd teams a chance to be part of the Country Cup competitions.
