Lovely afternoon at Camelford and their clubhouse hospitality was fantastic.
Falmouth look strong as everyone have said. In the last few years the subject of Falmouth need an in and out new front man crops up. But it seems to me that Westy and management got it spot on, in that theres goals in this team from all over the pitch and the way Falmouth play makes that quite exciting and only got to see the goals for- stats in recent and current seasons. Pick of the bunch is Jack Webber and Ollie Walker but I believe they are due to return to university at some point.
I would love to see Falmouth Western league bound next season. And I think the Western league is hoping we come up too.
There’s much talk of the standard of the leagues now. I’m not one for comparing as I’ve not played senior football myself. But having watched south western football since the 90’s my opinion is this. Overall the standard of the leagues have dropped significantly with the FA restructuring. I would say the better teams currently in the West Premier is comparable to the better teams in old peninsula West division. And the poorer teams in the West premier is comparable to the Cornwall combination league in it’s prime ? However I do think Falmouth are an exception and would be doing so well in the old South West Peninsula premier league when we had the likes of the Tavistocks, Parkways etc. So Western league would be a great test. But it’s still early days this season.
