  1. Not that long ago many fans complained about St Austell putting up their admission by a pound increase..
  2. Ye but at the moment it's top heavy with Bristol based clubs which is my point. The Cornish based players to leave work early on a midweek fixture will be hard as is the same for the Bristol players coming down here. And how many fans will want to travel that far on a midweek fixture.
  3. Yes I know that but the amount they have invested to win the league they are the most Westerly teams that could win.
  4. After my rant yesterday I have taken the time to list the miles that many Cornish fans and players will have to travel to fulfill the Western league next year. I have missed out on the Devon teams as most no where they are Good luck on the eventual winners of our league mite have to invest in players further up country. Bradford town 192 miles from Helston 4hours 47 mins one way. 202 miles from Mousehole 4h 57 mins. Bridgewater 147 miles 3h 33 mins from Helston. 157 miles from Mousehole. 3h 55 mins. Westbury United. 192 m 4h 41m Helston. 201 miles from Mousehole 4 h 57 Clevedon Town, 173m 4h 09m Helston 182 m from Mousehole 4h 24 Button, 199m 4h 50 Helston 207m from Mousehole 5h 06 Street 162m 3h 57 Helston 172m from Mousehole 4h 08 Hallen 184m 4h 31 Helston. 193m from Mousehole 4h 45 Shelton Mallet 168m Helston 178 from Mousehole Bridlington 187m Helston 197 from Mousehole Cribbs 185m Helston 195m from Mousehole Odd down Bath 182m Helston 192 from Mousehole Cadbury Health 196 Helston 296 from Mousehole keynsham Town 189 Helston 195 from Mousehole Bridport 145 from Helston 156m from Mousehole Chipping Sodbury town 195 Helston 204 from Mousehole Roman Glass At George 185 Helston 194 from Mousehole Wellington 135 Helston 144 from Mousehole.
  5. No St Austell couldn't afford promotion at the time. The fans were given a list of the distances in miles for the Western teams and Buckland was the closest at the time. 80% where in and around the Bristol area. Logistically this was not an option at that time.
  6. Having been an avid supporter of the Cornwall Premier league for many years I have to say that the FA have a lot to answers for. The gulf between many teams competing in this new league is an apsolute joke!!!!! The old league with the Devon teams where more competitive with the odd big scores during the season. I was at the the game at Poltair with St Austell beating St Dennis 10 Nil. Are the FA trying to kill off grass routes football. Do the fans want to see these one sided games. Will the support whittle away if these games are so one sided. We lost 2 great teams Millbrook and Torpoint to Devon. If the FA read this they are Cornish teams ah but they can compete in the Cornwall senior cup. So getting on to the promotion this year for the winner of the league if Helston or Mousehole win, how the hell can the local boys travel during midweek fixtures with work commitments and it's the same for the Western teams coming down here. It will put a massive strain on financing this. Maybe in the next 5 years with 5 teams being promoted from Devon and Cornwall the Western league might be more achievable but will it be to late if the early teams promoted are struggling.
