  1. You have to admit though Big Al, you do come across as a glass half empty sort of bloke!
  2. Holman SC have tweeted “would like to announce and welcome back Dave and Kyle Marks as joint first team managers for the upcoming 2019-2020 season.” I also think Dennis Pitt is joining the coaching staff.
  3. Here’s the SWPL D1W Prediction Final Table and congratulations to Soccer Follower for repeating last season’s success and finishing champion again! Thanks everyone who lasted the pace and posted predictions all season. As it’s Cup Final day, perhaps we should run a cup competition alongside the league next season?
  4. The Final Table and congratulations to Cornishlegend who kept off the challenge from Soccer Follower and last season’s champion Barbs. Well done to all those who lasted the pace and kept going all season. Just a thought as its FA Cup Final day, perhaps we should have a Cup competition to run alongside the league next season!
  5. If anyone is going to the Penwith Exiles game - any chance you can send me a couple decent photos of the champions trophy being presented please? Email davedeacon@cornishsoccer.info
  6. Here’s some thoughts from Phil Hiscox on the merger subject and the timings
  7. Who knows, Millbrook might get the opportunity yet to play in the west, depending on the Mousehole/Penzance thing!
  8. I think they are referring to the AGM being a success. The fact that they exist under their own entity I guess is better than what is happening at some clubs Paul.
  9. After a very successful AGM this week, Ludgvan AFC are extending the closing date for applications to be their first team manager until midday Wednesday 22nd May. Interested? Contact Sue Rowe for more info - email susansuzo@aol.com

  16. It gives a second chance to those teams that recently changed their minds to have a rethink I guess! One could ask, what have they got to lose by deciding on a change?
  17. St Piran Statement Background In September 2018 an announcement was made that the Carlsberg South West Peninsula League would only be operating two divisions at Step 6 of the National League Football Pyramid as part of a national re-structure by The FA. In addition to this it was decided that in Cornwall and Devon there would be 3 divisions operating at Step 7, 1 in Cornwall and 2 in Devon. These would be run by newly created leagues and committees with the support of the respective County FA’s. Initially teams were asked to submit expressions of interest by the 31st December 2018 if they wished to participate in these leagues. The initial response was positive with over 28 submissions to play in the Cornwall League. These teams were then asked to confirm their intentions to participate in the league by submitting a formal application and a deposit of £100 by the 31st March 2019. Again the response was positive with 20 clubs submitting an application. Unfortunately over the last few weeks several teams have made the decision to withdraw from the league, the reason that has been cited by every club for their withdrawal has been concerns over travelling due to teams in the league being drawn from all over the County, as far West as Mousehole and as far East as Saltash. Having listened to these concerns Cornwall FA held a meeting with the St Piran League, East Cornwall Premier League and Cornwall Combination League to look at a way forward. It is extremely important to note that the County is mandated by the FA to operate a Step 7 league. There must be an opportunity for clubs to progress into and through the National League System and play at the highest standard possible, along with the funding opportunities that this provides. Additionally it would be highly unfair for any league at Step 7 to be heavily populated by teams from one area of the County, thus creating barriers in place for ambitious teams based in different areas. New Proposals Taking into consideration all of the above points The St Piran League will now operate with two divisions, with the intention being that each division will be comprised of no more than 16 teams There will be an East Cornwall Division and a West Cornwall Division. Priority for entry will be given to those teams that participated at Step 7 during the 2018/19 season and to those teams who submitted a formal application along with deposit and who have not, at any time during the process submitted a notification of withdrawal. Therefore the current membership of The St Piran League is as follows East Division West Division Bude Town Ludgvan AFC St Austell Reserves Penryn Atheltic Wadebridge Town Reserves St Day St Dennis Reserves Helston Athletic Reserves Falmouth Town Reserves Perranwell Hayle Wendron United Reserves St Agnes Mousehole Reserves We have space in the league for a further 12 teams based in East Cornwall and 6 teams based in West Cornwall, entry criteria are listed below in order of precedence: East Division a. Those ECPL Premier Division clubs who have paid a deposit and subsequently withdrawn their application but now wish to reconsider. b. Those ECPL Premier Division clubs who may now wish to apply to join the League c. Those ECPL Division One clubs who may now wish to apply. d. Those Duchy League Premier Division clubs who may now wish to apply. West Division a. Those Combination League clubs who have withdrawn their application but now wish to reconsider. b. Those Combination League clubs who may now wish to apply to join the League. c. Those Trelawny League Premier Division clubs who may now wish to apply. It should be noted that Step 7 Leagues are County based, applications from Devon based clubs competing in the ECPL or Duchy League will not be accepted Additional The ECPL and Cornwall Combination Leagues will continue to act as feeder leagues for the St Piran League and will be formed from teams who do not apply to The St Piran League and teams who make applications to join from The Duchy League and Trelawny League. Once we know the teams for The St Piran League we will work closely with The ECPL, Cornwall Combination League, Duchy League and Trelawny League to establish their constitutions for the 2019/20 season. Should anyone have any questions please contact Richard Pallot of Cornwall FA on 01208 262983 or email richard.pallot@cornwallfa.com THE CUT-OFF DATE IS 24th MAY. All Applications to the St Piran League by then
