    cornish leg end reacted to Blues Chairman in Helston Athletic Football Club - Press Release / Statement   
    PRESS RELEASE / STATEMENT   PLAYERS & MANAGEMENT TO MAKE £6,000 DONATION.   In light of the Corona Virus pandemic, The Football Association (FA) this week announced that the 2019 / 2020 football season is terminated with all results considered ‘null and void’ for all clubs competing in The National League System, Steps 3 to 7. Other Cornish leagues have since followed suit.   Despite a record breaking run of twenty-four consecutive league wins and riding high on top of The South West Peninsula League Premier West Division, the Players and Management of Helston Athletic Football Club have put aside their disappointment of missing out on promotion, with an amazing gesture of goodwill in donating £6,000 to two Helston based charities.   Throughout a playing season, it is common practice for teams to collect fines from players who breach localised club rules, such as attending with unclean boots, arriving late, allowing a mobile phone to ring in the changing room, to name but a few. Such funds are usually set aside for end of season celebrations. However, with the season now ended and the corona virus situation requiring an unprecedented need for financial support, Club Captain, Mark Goldsworthy and First Team Manager Steve Massey were quick to propose all team monies collected, along with some additional donations from members, be split between Helston Cottage Hospital and The Towns Mustard Seed Food Bank, in support of essential supplies.   Mr Massey advised Helston Mayor, John Martin, of the donations, who in turn thanked the players and club saying, “with funds starting to run low, such donations are magnificent, much needed and will be gratefully received - thank you”   Helston Athletic Football Club Chairman Paul Hendy added “This extremely kind gesture is not from the club, but from its players and management. I feel immensely proud of their decision to support two local based charities, who I know will welcome ever pound they can collect at this difficult and challenging time.   The transfer of the donated funds to both charities is currently being processed.

    Why would the CCFA come to the aid of Newquay Bazza?? 
    So you could throw a few more quid at some more G players in hope of finishing them!

    Cornish football overall isn’t the same pull it used to be 10-15 years ago for young players. Back when I was a kid it was finish school and get out and kick a ball. You use to look forward to finishing work 5 pm and rush to an evening game. these days it’s sit playing the PlayStation or planning nights out. Young players haven’t got the drive these days of the players back then. Hence the lack of players and teams folding all the time. It will only get worse as time goes on.

    So instead of standing in the fresh air watching football, we are going to stand next to each other in clubs and pubs moaning about it.

    cornish leg end got a reaction from Old 1950 in Summer Leagues: Would it ever be a thing? This weather will..   
    I think teams would struggle more to put a team out in the summer tbh. Holidays, family, work, weddings can’t see it working. But IT could be that they change the league to start a slightly different time with a break in between and extending it to finish later in the year. Surely it can’t keep raining like this every week much longer!

    Does this mean John won’t be taking up the whistle anymore on a Saturday? 
     
    if so real shame he was good enough to go higher. Great understanding for the game. Very good when I’ve seen him this year.

    I would like to take this opportunity to welcome John Raikes to St Blazey as joint manager with myself and Kevin Morcom. John brings a wealth of experience to the team previously managing Mevagissey. It will give me time to take a slight step back and concentrate on my playing career and hopefully get myself into the first team after my knee injury.

    I went and officiated Ludgvan and Hayle today. Enjoyable game for me personally with not a massive amount to do. Hayle just too strong for Ludgvan all across the park - hopefully Ludgvan can recruit some new players and put an end to their recent misery which is obviously having a huge effect on confidence.
    I made a point of staying around after the game today to have a chat with some of the guys that work behind the scenes at Ludgvan. All of them hurting because of the struggles the club is currently facing. I really hope things can turn around for them as they're a bloody good club.
    I must say that the assistants I had today were the best I've had all season. Some challenging calls and some very honest ones at that. Top stuff.
    Ludgvan stalwart John Matthews (who's almost 62 might I add) was superb on the line - I couldn't believe it when he told me he's just had a knee operation. I had a good ten minute chat with him (first time I've met him), he hit the nail on the head about local grassroots football and it's struggles. He told me about the season he played 79 games.. that's the sort of pedigree and desire to play that's needed right now.

    An embarrassing day for lanreath at Polperro today, Polperro 6-0 up with 15 minutes left to play the game was abandoned due to lanreath not having enough players on the pitch with 3 being sent off and two in the sin bin. Well done to Polperro for showing so much class throughout the game

    Why not write your own report then Maybenextyear, a man travels a 90 mile round trip to give a far more detailed report than in the Sunday Independent & all you can do is slag him off.

    Shame that Parkway player Fletcher Williams is currently injured. Potentially you could have had William Fletcher and Fletcher Williams on the pitch at the same time.

    Torpoint v Millbrook delayed kick of at either ground if 1st teams home, clubs would have made more. 
    Sticker v St Dennis 
    Surely this would have made more sense, only my opinion.
