  1. Very good game at St Austell. Watched without knowing strengths of the 2 sides. Fair result.
  2. Are you Big Al in disguise? I know you’re not.

    Spuds staying at Wembley

    Tottenham have been given permission to continue playing their home matches at Wembley until their new stadium is ready - but at a reduced capacity. Spurs were due to move into their new White Hart Lane stadium in September but the project has suffered a number of construction delays. The club initially agreed to continue playing at Wembley until the end of the year. They can now play there indefinitely but with a reduced capacity of 51,000. A planning application to Brent Council is required to increase the capacity to 62,000 with "additional limited exceptions" at 90,000. The council had granted special dispensation to allow Tottenham to play the entire 2017-18 season at Wembley at full capacity. The club had hoped to be in their new 62,062-seater stadium by the start of the current campaign. During the summer, this was changed to the 15 September meeting with Liverpool. Just over a month before that game, Tottenham said that because of "issues with the critical safety systems" their move had been delayed. On 26 October, they confirmed all remaining games in 2018 would be played at Wembley, with chairman Daniel Levy saying it was still not possible to "confirm an exact opening date and fixture". Now that deadline has been extended indefinitely, with the stadium not expected to open until January 2019 at the earliest. The club say they will provide a further update on the stadium's progress in December. Tottenham's next match at Wembley is against Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday, November 24. That will be the final game, pending any further appeal to Brent Council, that Spurs will be allowed to use the stadium at its full capacity.
  6. Only 3 postponements. Well done grounds people.
  7. League rules. You want to read them sometime. You might learn a bit of respect. Good for insomnia too.
  8. Don’t tell Al that, Dave, he might explode. Isn’t Al an advocate of the late postponement? The SWPL clubs have an obligation to notify postponements to the league. I don’t think they are obliged to do the same for Leeds or Al.
  9. Phil is expressing his opinion/request as Senior Cup postponements can have a serious effect on league fixtures, especially if the home club do not have lights.
  10. The Cornwall Senior Cup tie between Wendron United and Bude Town is off as Bude Town have forfeited the tie meaning Wendron will go through to the 3rd Rd on January 5th.

    Later stages of the Europa Cup might gives us another chance to visit the new ground? That is assuming it's finished this season.

    Former Tottenham defender Paul Miller, now an ambassador for the club, believes the redevelopment of White Hart Lane will not be completed to stage first-team matches until February.
  13. From the league secretary .. Wednesday 7th November SWP Premier Division : Bodmin Town 7 Tavistock 2 With 18 of the 19 Premier Division sides seen this season, the missing one was Bodmin Town, so a trip down to Priory Park was in order to bring up the set and what a game I choose ! In August Tavistock had beaten Bodmin 7-1 at Langsford Park and since an opening day draw at Godolphin the Lambs had chalked up 11 straight league victories and were the only side remaining unbeaten. 90 minutes later all that was over as Bodmin Town produced a vintage performance that was pretty much flawless to win 7-2, and in truth could have been by more. After a cagey start the hosts broke the deadlock in the 17th minute with a Tom Moody shot and just two minutes later they made it 2-0 when Jake Ash saw his free kick from out wide deceive all and end up in the net. Tavistock then responded and were awarded a 22nd minute penalty which Josh Grant scored from to reduce the arrears and look to get them back in the game. The hosts though had other ideas and Ben Steer made it 3-1 in the 29th minute before a deflected shot from Steve Colwell made it 4-1 at the break. Any chance of a second half fightback was over as early as the 53rd minute as Josh Robbins conceded a penalty and although Glynn Hobbs spot kick was well saved, the dismissal of Robbins for a 2nd yellow card left the visitors a man short. Hobbs made up for the penalty miss in the 58th when he made it 5-1 and with 17 minutes to go that became 6-1 before a 75th minute shot from distance from Max Gilbert made it 7-1 with all 7 goals (and a missed penalty) having come in the space of an hours play. Tavistock grabbed an 83rd minute consolation through Grant, but in truth they had been given a stiff lesson by a Bodmn side who on this form can still have a major say in this seasons honours. Tavistock remain 2nd and remain favourites for the title, but they will need to bounce back and their next game, away at Exmouth Town on Saturday, looks another big test which I think I may well go along to see how it pans out !
  14. I didn't get ANY response from the CCFA when I suggested it could be something to consider. Do we know who is behind it?
  15. Do you really think the FA would give only 5 months notice for such a major structural change. I know they are unpredictable....
  16. Surely someone must know who got sent of at Sticker! Even the secretary’s report fails to name him (most unlike you, Phil).

    2019/20 restructure

    This is the advice/reminder given in SWPL Newsletter. Reminder: FA Re-structure: What do you need to do as a club: Every club, irrespective of which league you are currently a member of, must if you wish to be considered for membership of the new Step six or Step seven leagues, submit a written expression of interest (along with your current ground grading classification if known) by email to Laurence Jones, Head of National League System, NLS@thefa.com by 31st December 2018. This is a requirement for all clubs even if you are already playing in a step six or step seven league. Remember a club applying for Step 6 may ALSO apply to put the reserves into Step 7. Any club applying for Step 6 and failing to be accepted, for whatever reason, will still be considered for Step 7. Date for meeting ground grading and/or providing planning permissions for dispensation is March 31st 2019 (3 months after application date). Clubs given dispensation by the FA to complete work such as lights of which planning has been granted, will be March 31st 2021.

    5 more home games at Wembley and still no definite date for first match at WHL. Project managers eh?
  19. I have good news for you. As a pensioner you get reduced admission. £4 at Falmouth, £3 at many other grounds.
  20. Looking from the stand, the red card looked very likely based on the reaction of the Lino. Having viewed the highlights, maybe a little harsh, can only assume it was “excessive force” or whatever the phrase is. Spoiled a good game though.

    The stadium was due to open on 15 September but - at last week's meeting with the Trust, the notes from which were published on Monday - the club said it would issue an update "in the next two to three weeks".

    Trevor mewton memorial game

    Think you need to clarify KO TIME as paper says 1:30
  24. Not sure why they would “obviously accommodate TCFC to play at the Stadium when it is completed”. Sting them with a high rent that they probably cannot afford?
