  1. Then they should be responsible for ensuring covid compliance like the rest of clubs who don’t use council pitches, and ensure track and trace and rule of 6 is maintained....but according to the FA they are not. I agree with you Pat and believe the club are responsible and liable for the spectators of both sides safety and behaviour at the touch lines however if the FA state that this is not the case for COVID laws then it opens the door to allow council-pitch playing clubs to legally say they are not responsible any more. The ownership of a pitch should not be (surely cannot be) a justifiabl
  2. Hang on... so if I read this right... council owned pitch unlimited spectators all able to bring booze as long as they stick to rule of 6 but it’s NOT the club’s responsibility to manage them. Private owned pitch with a clubhouse... unlimited drinkers sticking to rule of 6 all able to watch a game whilst drinking but mustn’t have bought a ticket or paid entry....and a pitch on a totally open but privately owned field can’t have a single spectator..... wow
  3. Curtailing the season at this level makes no sense. Very few, if any, clubhouses and no gate charges so games CAN go ahead without spectators or with socially distanced spectators as we have had to in the past. Plus changing rooms and showers usage were finally approved ahead of lockdown. However the sheer volume of matches remaining surely rules out trying to complete the season by June 30. but there is no reason that we cannot simply pause the league and resume again August. Open up a cup comp and make participation optional. should a team gain promotion it’s results can be expung
  4. Totally agree older, like I said in my post, but it’s what to do then ... taking the easy decision to “end” still leaves the question of how to progress. Fish, no rules were made and no precedent set other than its now an option. However null and voiding would leave us with a full season to attempt to complete ... again... whilst uncertain times still lie ahead for next autumn and winter. Surely better to have more time to complete a competitive league season as well as leave the door open for cup fixtures by rolling over? but I think everyone would agree that we need a dec
  5. Surely each league has an idea of a plan by now... clubs have to be told what the intentions are so they can decide on what to do about pitch maintenance etc which, whilst football continuing still remains an option, must be continued at cost to each club. surely no one now seriously believes the leagues can be played out to a conclusion by may 31, so the options remain as they were back in December .... 1. null and void (considering that’s been tried and found lacking as a solution) thus placing us in the same position as previously, 2. Pause the season now and rollover to next seaso
  6. Surely the most common sense approach across all local football this level and below, would be to pause all the leagues as they stand, resuming in August. no relegations or promotions, registrations carried over by the FA and leagues, as well as suspensions. if any football is allowed ... and it’s a big if...I’m sure every league already has a short-format idea for competitive matches most likely locally-orientated that would satisfy players and managers competitive spirits... it’s plain, simple, and would work
  7. Last nights announcement effectively ends the ECPL league season .... surely no one could practically aim to complete their season in under 3 months (even assuming we are fully out and able to play at the end of Feb). Perhaps the league should start to plan now and give us a few alternatives that could see us at least have a form of viable, competitive and most of all meaningful football once we can resume? My personal idea would be to scrap the league competition again and agree no promotion or relegations with above or below. Then play out a league cup competition with a format of 4
  8. Grassroots football can still be played in tier 3
  9. Grassroots football can be played even in tier 3..... it’s just clubhouses that are affected at our level in the ecpl so really can’t see the issue unless there’s actual covid cases....all other facilities are covered by the risk assessments just as before
  10. YOUTH FOOTBALL FINDS A NEW HOME! St Newlyn East AFC are today announcing the major exciting news that they have formed a brand-new Youth setup within the club. This will see local children able to play football at their Cargoll Rd home for the first time in our 116-year history under our clubs’ banner. In a statement the club announced: “We are delighted to confirm we have initially formed 2 brand-new sides for under-7 and under-8 players. We have completed our affiliation with the County FA, as well as ensuring all insurances and safeguarding measures are in place. They wil
  11. Since when have showers been allowed???????????? Thought the FA rule was showers must not be used???
  12. It’s pretty simple to understand... you take your tier with you. What’s the confusion? Football doesn’t override government regulations! And if anyone is happy with flouting the rules why not post selfie’s of yourselves doing so and send them openly to the FA under your clubs names .. .... no??? Then it’s obvious you’d be in the wrong. Stick to the rules, stop the spread

  14. Anyone have any idea why Sam Bullen would receive an 18month suspension after Stickers win??? Just seen the list this week 😱😱😱😱
  15. Any chance this forum can get back to .... oh... I don’t know..... FOOTBALL??? By any chance??? Most people are no doubt fed up with all this on here and tbh it should be ended as a topic.... you have all just gone way off centre...... football is back folks so stop your bitching, whining, politicising and other ramblings .... there’s plenty of other forums out there to use for that .... this is the Cornwall FOOTBALL forum after all.
