  1. St Newlyn East vs Boacastle......most definitely ON!!!
  2. Wow......so....should a side consistently fail to raise a team for the entire season does this mean that at the end of the season, when they are minus, say 30 points, and bottom of the table, and with no deal in place any more with the Duchy League, that they retain their status in the ECPL? Mad
  3. Oh please ...yes. ..let's hear how you justify this action because of the ref. ..sums up the "senior" game totally ..... thank God for the Junior levels and their usage of Respect ........come on...please tell the world why it was the fault of the official
  4. Just a disgrace....sorry...how can you bring the official into this........what a joke
  5. Wow.....what an advert for local Cornish football......well done to the SWPL.......if you want sportsmanship, fair play and entertaining football may I direct you to your "lower' standards.....its here the true Grassroots football is played...perhaps there should be a bit of retrospectiveness applied...but somehow I feel that those at a "higher level " will still have an excuse?????? Comments welcome ......
  6. Great game at St Newlyn East after several postponements..... St Newlyn East came out 2,0 winners but full credit to North Petherwin who gave it their all .. superb performance by the visiting keeper and skipper and well reffed too... Good advert for Duchy Football and a warm welcome afterwards at our Pub the Pheasant Inn for all involved..... looking forwards to Tintagel in the 3rd Rnd this coming Saturday in what should be a different matter from our league fixture earlier this season....
  7. 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.....
  8. In the midst of all the cancellations due to the weather, and all the vaguaries of the other influencing leagues, I personally think some lee way should be given to the fixtures secretary here... it's a hell of a job to sort out all the permutations, allowing for the league, jnr cup, ko cup, snr game ties and other factions, I think we should all allow him a chance to sort out things and then we can deal with it eventually. .. let the league sort it out for God's sake........
  9. Try contacting the fixtures secretary....rather than on here........jeez
  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 ...
