  1. Sorry but to me this is the wrong way round…. Lower leagues and smaller clubs simply do not have the volunteers even to adequately run their own clubs let alone provide a match official for others. To me the solution is for every SWPL and St Pirans side to provide a trainee official who then earns their crust in the lower leagues. If they don’t then they can be charged an admin fee direct to a fund enabling expenses or other incentives to be provided to club officials in Match days…. 3 officials every game gate entry fees, bars and clubhouses, paid players, team buses, lovely to see but at grassroots …. And that’s NOT st Pirans or swpl…..we surely still want to see football?? No refs will mean no games and the death of proper grassroots football.
  2. Hi Both Sides unfortunately we don’t produce one at present (far too few volunteers as it is much like other clubs) however you’re asking does make me want to consider it for the new season 👍👍👍👍
  3. St Newlyn East vs Mount Gould (Gould lead 4:1 after the 1st leg) - Saturday 5th June 2:30pm kick off. Cargoll Rd, St Newlyn East TR8 5LE - Cup presentation after the final whistle. Parking is in the Village Hall carpark. We would love to see a bumper crowd at Cargoll Rd to see out this COVID-season once and for all! If you've never been to our ground we have put a lot of work into making it a great place to visit and it would be fantastic to have the noise of you guys there all along the touchlines once again! Please be aware that no alcohol is permitted past the entry gate, but we will be opening our brand new refreshment hut for hot and cold drinks on the day. We will be checking everyone in for "Track and Trace" so I'd plan to arrive a couple of minutes earlier to definitely make sure you get in on time for kick off. Do please abide by the current COVID guidance - we all want to get out of restrictions in 3 week's time! Entry is free - but we will be doing a 50/50 draw at the gate for £1, and the drinks will likewise be £1 so keep some change free if you can! If you need any extra info take a look at our Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/stnewlyneastfc , email our Club Secretary at jongrigg1969@hotmail.co.uk, or message us at 07955 735440. Thanks for reading this - it would be great to see you there! JON GRIGG, ST NEWLYN EAST AFC - CLUB SECRETARY

  7. Hi guys hope you are all doing well! You may have seen we have a 2-legged cup final against Devonians Mount Gould coming up. This looks like it could be the last fully competitive footy we will see for a bit at least till the restart in August and we want to go out with a bit of a bang! We don’t expect too much on the pitch from the 2 legs –Mount Goulds quality and table-topping position would definitely put us in the position of “underdogs” – however we will be giving it our all and would like to be able to put a bit of a show on for all the spectators. The away (for us) leg is this coming Saturday at Bodmins’ Priory Park, and our home leg is the following Saturday 5th June – both 2:30pm kick offs. We are hoping to christen our newrefreshment hut on the day, as well as show off our shiny new dugouts!!!! It would be great if we could get a bit of a crowd there on the day – and we wouldn’t necessarily ask you to cheer us on !! – as it would really give the game a great atmosphere worthy of a cup final. The league are looking to do the presentation after the game, we have 3 officials appointed by the FA and it already looks like the weather is improving! If there is any way you could pass the word around your friends, team and own supporters we would be delighted to welcome you atCargoll Rd for one last blast in the 2020/21season.....entry will be free with a £1 “50/50 draw” on the gate. Thanks in advance! Hopefully see some of you there on the days! Kind regards ST NEWLYN EAST AFC CLUB SECRETARY

  9. After the extra lockdown easing St Newlyn East’s pitch will be available for the final as already arranged with the League.... 👍👍👍👍👍👍
  10. 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 justifiable reason for discrimination about who can or cannot safely watch a game of football.
  11. 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
  12. 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 expunged and any replacement team would just have to play a full season of games. pausing the league also prevents the mass signing of more senior players who are now all available which ultimately would make a mockery of any fixtures to come
  13. 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 decision now rather than just constantly waiting to “see how things go”....
  14. 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 season restarting as usual in August 3. Points per game retaining promotion and relegation either decided now or after whatever matches eventually get played by May. In my opinion the only solution that allows clubs to act and move on effectively is the 2nd. It allows games still to be arranged if clubs or leagues wish in some format (friendlies, short-form cups, etc) whilst allowing a fair and evenly contested end to the league in 2022. Those clubs that would prefer to do grounds works instead can do so starting early....whilst we avoid confusion, extra costs and disruption to those clubs that wish to continue playing. plus a decision could be made now....
