  1. For the simple reason the comp never now happened... that’s what expunging the league and cups results in Unfortunately
  2. Did you miss that all league comps are expunged....? The only “open” comps remaining are the various County Cups....
  3. Pretty sure that’s what the FA have arranged looking at past emails to theClubs.....Senior Cup to just be St Pirans and Peninsular primarily as a midweek evening tournament, Junior Cup for Duchy/Trelawney and a new Intermediate County Cup for ECPL and Combo......Good idea tbh
  4. Firstly, hope everyone is staying safe and protecting their families and friends. Eventually, we will indeed be looking at a restart of football in the County...at some stage. Clubs will he informed that they can return to training, friendlies can be arranged and grounds prepared. A date for the new season will be set and fixtures arranged. Whenever that will be. 19/20 is over That's a fact now. Below step 7 the FA and leagues will currently be able to discuss any rankings and/or promotions or relegations if deemed appropriate. But since the restart date will eventually be fixed, perhaps I can offer something as a possibility worth considering? The Senior and Junior Cups are down to just a couple of games to resolve. These remaining games could easily be structured into a couple of weeks to play out (like the end of a tournament), to reach 4 clubs and 2 games. I would like to suggest the option of a season-opener, in the manner of the old finals-day, where both games could be held as a massive fundraiser for our precious grassroots game across the county. This could be at a large ground, anywhere in the County, and be planned for once testrictions are freed up across the land Any and all monies raised on the day could be disbursed equally across ALL COUNTY Clubs to help their recovery and the whole County can enjoy a festival of football celebrating the return of the game. Any thoughts? Possibly a petition to the CCFA?

  6. Could the procedure, deadline and requirements for 2021/22 applications be made available in advance during the coming 20/21 season? Dont recall seeing them on here this season but I admit I may have missed it...
  7. St Newlyn East v Saltash now off...referee called it after the earlier than anticipated downpour...apologies everyone.
  8. After hard work by our own little Elves St Newlyn East vs Saltash in the Duchy premier is definitely ON! 230pm kick off!
  9. Absolutely....one Club registration .. and it wont stop players playing for other clubs at other levels if they want as the current transfer rules allow for this anyway...but it will at least need a proper transfer to be completed within the system.....and there are then controls within that system which would limit the cavalier use of players jumping across Clubs and levels on a daily basis which is one of the biggest complaints we see locally.....
  10. Very good start....as a Senior League in Step Football hopefully we'll see the whole seasons fixtures released soon? Step 6 fixtures been out a while now so any potential ground clashes are well known.
  11. I'm all for it Dave..tho just realised my post seemed initially not ...😁 we are a diverse and hard to cross County, but long cup trips ( and league ones) are part and parcel of the fun of sport here. I mean...Duchy Prem already looking far more East Cornwall than last seasons mainly Mid Cornwall setup..... really hope the Pirans takes off and becomes a great League...
  12. Cally with a 130 mile round trip, Bude with a 114 miler.....prob not best to make the first round over the August bank holiday weekend!! 🤣🤣 Best of luck to the new league .... think the whole of the County will be watching intently as to how it shapes up over the next 2 seasons....👍👍
  13. As I said...my opinion....and everyone is entitled to them ..however ECPL you have still not explained why grant funding as stated is not beneficial ..nor why 10 or so away drives a season should be the biggest hurdle (as virtually every remainer seems to go on about) and supposedly destroy clubs??? And Richard's point is well made..whilst your disparaging mention of "go play for your local village team" shows that the National FA are probably not the only ones without a grasp of the history and tradition of local Cornish football........
  14. Sorry ECPL but I dont agree. You ask what good the grants would do? Try better facilities for players, officials and spectators, floodlit grounds for more evening ties, improved equipment and grounds maintenance increasing playability of pitches. These grants will not be available outside of Step football...My understanding is that many ECPL and Combo clubs pay players...so why do you say no "recompense"? Does anyone actually take unpaid time off from their regular Saturday employment to play?? "Junior" football clubs often have huge trips to make...try Holywell,Godolphin or Newlyn up to Boscastle, North Petherwin, Stoke Climsland...these are 6hr days just for 90mins football...And I doubt any drivers get any mileage payments. Every club has sponsors...try getting just one extra to cover mileage for your 10 away league games and the burden of cost that you see as possibly destroying all local football would vanish...football has to develop and move with the times. Perhaps a solution would be move it all to Sunday mornings...oh...sorry..if it aint broke dont fix it right....sin bins?? Never work...oh..it does actually..... I'm astonished so many clubd are being short sighted regarding this....there are great opportunities and possible success stories in the making...North Petherwin may yet get in and open up all manner of funding streams...I for one will raise a glass if in a few seasons they have created facilities fit for a local cup final .... Everyone is entitled to their opinion...and this is just mine ...
