  1. Agree with Deacs and Older, it’s not just a game of football, it’s everything that goes with it. Think any league where you pay to watch a game at certain facilities is certainly off limits. ie) Combo and East Cornwall leagues upwards. You could possibly play Trelawny and Duchy league matches if the players don’t mind changing in cars etc but I think the Junior lads should still be respected and the common sense decision is let’s go for next season when another 4/5 months may make all the difference regards vaccines for the elderly and more vulnerable and clubhouses are open again so the club

  2. Agree with Rappo. Far too soon and too contradictory; the rule of 6 applies outdoors, yet 30 blokes from different households can play football with each other? Nothing to be gained from attempting to finish the season IMO. Knock it on the head and go again in August when hopefully far safer. Many clubs rely on elderly volunteers and many refs at this grassroots level are also in the vulnerable age bracket - why rush it and potentially put them at risk?

  3. Yeah Bry, what I was trying to get at is exactly what Dave said really. Maybe a more localised referee to cut the costs down for clubs who are already struggling a bit and one that’s looking to use it as pre season training. Didn’t want to pick on refs specifically! I’m a big fan of our local refs! 😀👍 Also maybe charge us spectators a couple of quid to watch a friendly at any level, just to help the clubs out a bit as well. They’ve spent a lot of time over the last year making no money at all and still with bills to pay no doubt. You sound like you might be quite an aggressive ref so maybe eve

    Null and void

    Judging by previous posts on various threads regarding the resumption of the season it seems most people are in favour of what other leagues have decided to do, it's common sense surely! No changing rooms, no club house access, and more. Trying to rearrange fixtures is going to be a nightmare.

Wait for the mass vaccination role out to of had a proper effect with data being recorded of transmission etc. This season has been too inconsistent and stop/start to resume the season, as soon as measures and restrictions allow it just seems a little too early. It's been highlighted in a previous post that you can play on a pitch with 21 other players from a mixture of households, but then you can only meet one other household socially distanced outside? Also need to consider the amount of matches per week if the leagues do continue, t

    Possible new teams

    Don’t see how Truro City can just jump into a league when other clubs have worked hard on ground improvements and football squads to reach that stage. But then I suppose money talks.

  7. Without a clubhouse open how do you finance it? Referee. Lino's. Water. Electric and gas. Kit wash. Cleaning. Sterilising. It is not just a game of football anymore. We followed all protocols in our last game and 6 individuals contracted the virus. Roll it over.

  8. Taking the knee is purely a symbolic gesture and will never achieve anything. Racism will never go away as it comes from all sectors of life, it is not just one way. When the crowds return racism will as well, it runs through the fabric of society all across the world. The modern world is all about diversity and when this happens and cultures mix they also clash on their beliefs. Can you really be an Englishman in England anymore? When in Rome do as the Roman's do is very apt today but is not followed, but would probably solve a few problems. Diversification is

  9. WOTP, I was lucky enough to play in the old SWL from the mid eighties to the early noughties mostly give or take a season or three out injured and I would agree the league was exceptionally strong. You’ve only got to look at the old programmes from that era on Deacs Cornish football memories page to see the strength of the squads, even mid table teams were full of quality players. You had realistically 5 or 6 teams that could win the league at the start of every season and always one or two surprise teams thrown into that. Trying to win the Senior Cup was really difficult as well, because like

  13. I think it's best we follow the other leagues & start again in August. Seems a little bit daft trying to fit 20 games in april & may. Also it would be a shambles with the higher leagues cancelled, it will mean there will be hundreds of peninsula level ringers looking for a game every Saturday.

  15. For me and many others I would think would be the great Falmouth teams of the late 60's early 70's. A load of ex pro's and a few local-ish players, plus thousands playing in local football at a very good standard...great football days out. My golden age for good times.

  19. Also if leagues above are cancelled but leagues below continue what would happen with regards to promotion and relegation? Call the season off and leave open the door for potential friendlies with teams that can offer covid secure facilities and want to play them without there being pressures.

  20. Current league fixtures are not achievable from 29/3 to 31/5 most sides in Trelawny have at least 10 fixtures to go some even more. Cups would have to be null and void. Consideration could be given to a smaller World Cup format with smaller leagues and a final if the desire is to get something going for the remaining 2 months two other massive considerations for the Trelawny / duchy leagues is the possibility of the NLS being made null and void which might result in higher standard players influxing the league looking for a game making it a bit of a farce. If trelawny is to recommence in

  22. So basically I can start playing & training again from 29th March with 22+ blokes all coming in to close and direct physical contact with each other on the pitch...but, for example, my Mrs can only sit socially distanced and watch a session or a match (not that she would lol) with only 1 other and can still only have up to 6 people socially distanced from 2 households in a private garden? Something doesn’t make sense here!

  24. Rappo, as a Referee I think that asking us to officiate for petrol expenses is a bit odd. Who in their right mind is going to give up their time for a few quid?? I am sure if players want to play they would be prepared to put their hand in their own pockets and pay a fiver to play and cover costs incurred . Why should a Referee subsidise the players entertainment?? I suppose those same players who question every decision made by the Ref in the game would be jumping at the chance to officiate and help their mates and their club to get a game on........no, I didn't think so!

  25. With 16 odd games left to play for us in duchy division 3, I think whilst getting grassroots footy back is brilliant, but I think the season should be cancelled and start again next season for 2021-22 as getting all these games played before the start of the next season will be a nightmare some teams have more than that to play, so logistically it seems unable to complete the season. But that's my opinion and we are all entitled to one and not everyone will agree.

  27. The major problem with all football on TV is that the behaviours they focus upon, (usually repeatedly, in close up and in slow motion) swiftly transfer themselves to players outside of the privileged, elite arenas. VAR was introduced only because of the unfair scrutiny and criticism of every refereeing decision by TV broadcasters - and now they are doing the same with VAR decisions!

  31. It was always ridiculous, should players take the curtsy before a match to protest against sexism, or strike a pose to support LGTB etc. etc. etc.? We all know (or should do by now) that discrimination is wrong, but we don’t need to carry a placard around with us to prove it! Spend the time and effort on sanctions (legal or otherwise) against transgressors, on the pitch or the terraces and let’s get on with the game!

  33. No local football until everyone is vaccinated is the only safe option, null and void it all now or roll it over. There's the two choices and both are the common sense approach. The infection rates are in the right direction at last but the number of deaths says it all. You cannot take liberties with this virus or it will win. No lift on the lockdown or it will accelerate again and have us on the back foot for years. And for God's sake vaccinate the teachers, police, everyone on the frontline first.

    Sin bin or better still a red card for the so called "professional foul". FIFA will never go for the red card and the sin bin is rarely used locally but it is just for dissent atm. Far too much of it, spoiling the game as a spectacle and making the authorities look foolish for allowing it to flourish.
