  1. I thought that someone would jump in with this Timmy. It is a misinterpretation of the word 'promotion', caused by the FA's use of language. This is not a promotion following winning the league on the pitch this season, which is what the wiki pages would suggest. It is an promotion/upward movement as a result of the restructure proposal from the FA, which has been on the agenda for a couple of years and based on results over two seasons. Different things, same result. Yes, it looks as if Parkway may well benefit as well. Congratulations to both clubs, with others still in with a cha
  2. Wiki pages for all leagues (I think, certainly the ones that I have looked at, which is a lot!) set out their tables section in that way, indicating which positions would NORMALLY achieve promotion/relegation. Whoever edits the Western League page (and numerous other leagues) just hasn't yet edited it to take account of the early end to the season. All promotion/relegation into and from steps 2-6 have been scrapped for this season. So, no promotion for Parkway.
  3. The SWPL is at the same level as Western 1, which is why promotion from SWPL is to Western Prem. Relegation from Western Prem is at the FA's discretion, but would be on a geographical basis. For example, Saltash would return to SWPL, but Cullompton may well end up in Western 1. Neither would be relegated to the St Piran as that is more than a one division drop. A club refusing promotion would be relegated two divisions I think, but I stand to be corrected on this. (Sorry that I haven't got any postcards at the moment, didn't know that they were still around.)
  4. As with cricket Dave. International Umpires do not make decisions on even the most obvious run-outs, stumpings, no balls any more as they know that the third umpire will do the job for them. As with football, the poor sods at lower levels have to make the decisions without any help. Strange how the top level refs/umpires seem to need the help, but the rest don't.
  5. Don't know if it will help but try this. Google nonleaguematters.co.uk on top line click on tables archive click on nonleaguetables.co.uk link pick a season, then scroll down to see if any leagues you are interested in are there - I know that ECPL tables are available for some seasons at least.
  6. With the talk of improving Parkway to Southern League standard, what about National League standard should Truro be promoted either via the league or through restructuring?
  7. Not so much a joke as a true* story. Many years ago, Falmouth were due to play at home to Truro. The Truro players met at their clubhouse to prepare to travel over. Suddenly one of the players announced that he really didn't fancy bothering with the game, he just wasn't interested, Amazingly a number of players agreed and they decided to forfeit the game. One player wasn't happy with this, a new signing, Stewart Yetton, so he suggested that he go over and take on Falmouth on his own. The rest thought he was stupid, but eventually said, go for it if you want. So he did. The rest of th
  8. I went to Blackpool last week. NEVER AGAIN!!! I was walking along the prom, and in the distance I could see a large group of people. As I got closer I could see a couple in the middle. They were screaming and shouting at each other at full volume, much to the amusement of the crowd. Then it started to turn nasty, and the couple started hitting each other, fists at first, then from somewhere the woman found a frying pan, and started clouting the man with it around the head and body. I guess that someone called the police, as a copper arrived and tried to stop the couple from fighting
  9. I have been down in Plymouth from the Midlands for a few days so thought I'd 'tick off' Saltash, they were one of the few grounds down that way that I hadn't ticked as every time I've been in the area for several years they have been away! Nice set up, I have been to several worse Southern League grounds in my time. Easy to find. Plenty of room in the car park. Virus procedures very good, from temperature testing, track and trace by app or paper, one way system, two out of every three seats closed off. As far as I could see most people were being sensible. Decent pitch. Oh, and a decent h
  10. How on earth did the ref not see the foul in the build up to the first goal? Too far away? Even the eventual scorer stopped and looked at the ref expecting a whistle.
  11. This offer and similar have been made several times over the last couple of years. He always goes to ground, refusing to engage, in the same way that he did when offered the chance to talk to club officials re ground move/developments. But the alleged prohibitive cost of entry (anyone know how much entry is for OAP's at Falmouth?) is only one of a whole list of reasons that he has given; wrong day, wrong time of day, wrong weather, too far to travel, too much rubble near the entrance, etc etc etc. And yet he is an expert on all matters Falmouth and football in Cornwall in general wit
  12. Stoke Gabriel v Falmouth a couple of years back. Just about everything else was off. Heavy snow and ice and rain, howling gale end to end. No idea how the game was started let alone finished, unless it was just to avoid Falmouth having to come back later in the season. Watched the game from inside the club, only time I have ever watched a live game from inside anywhere. Would you believe that I was actually on holiday in Plymouth at the time, took me the rest of the week to thaw out.
  13. Whoever he is, it is a complete waste of time trying to make sense of his posts, or to get into a sensible discussion with him despite many many attempts by respected posters over the years. Best bet, as has been posted above, is to ignore him.
  14. You are 'Big' Al, and I claim my £5.
  15. A good watch. Looking forward to part 2. Cheers.
