  1. You will find a lot of these clubs around the inner cities don't pay players to play at that level because there is a abundance of players of that calibre to pick from. I had a colleague who was playing Northern Premier on the weekends and he laughed at me when I said Truro City players were getting paid all those years ago.
  2. Sensible decision in my opinion. Get back on our feet and get the Country Cups going again in the Summer!
  3. Much appreciated Keith. Me and Dave delayed last years crowdfunder as we knew people wouldn’t be in a position to do so but in the end we achieved our target by late summer. As always I’m sure the forum will be a valuable source for clubs/players when we get back on our feet and start playing again.
  4. CornwallFootballForum.com is a non-profit, independent community football website first created over 10 years ago.Since then technology has changed, users visiting the site has significantly grown to over 1000 unique users a day. This has meant costs associated with running the site has increased as we moved to a dedicated server and 365 day support. In order to keep the site free from costs to the members we tried an advertising model in the past. Unfortunately, this hasn't worked as expected. So, we are asking members if they will please donate to help run the site for another 12 months.

In a time of uncertainty it would certainly been nice to know one way or another to make a decision at club level. If the word was 'will' then clubs who didn't wish to carry on could withdraw without worrying about promotion/relegation next season.
  7. Important News: The Board have made the decision that due to fans not being able to return until May 17th, and secondary spend on hospitality, that we will NOT now be running any end of season Cup Competitions https://www.swpleague.co.uk/blog-post/updates/ Press Release from South West Peninsula League Board Thursday 11th March 2021 The board of the league held a scheduled “Zoom” meeting last evening (Weds 10th March) and were able to consider the guidance sent by The Football Association late that afternoon in its deliberations. The board had previously agreed t
  8. Leagues are run for the benefit of member clubs, so it is appropriate they they are consulted before a decision is made by the League committee.
  9. Looks like other leagues have already started to make their decision following the FA announcement. Following yesterday’s announcement, the Midland Football League has also curtailed its divisions at Step 7 & 8. “A number of clubs below Step 6 also rely on spectators and secondary spend and would be unable to continue this season with no income”. https://twitter.com/Ollie_Bayliss/status/1364842285767262208?s=20 Trust me on this. Even at this level if spectators are not allowed into games Clubs will take losses if players do not pay subscriptions. Majority o
