    Dagerags reacted to ECPL in Liskeard out. ------ Torpoint, Saltash, Polperro ?????   
    Common sense at last. The decision to force a new league has completely back fired. I said at the time don't fix what is not broken. The ECPL for all its faults has been around since 1961. It has always been a friendly league – yes it has had its faults but strangely the new St Piran league has opened up the ECPL to receive more clubs from the Duchy League as well as elsewhere. It is understood that up to seven teams want to join the ECPL.
    At the moment there is 23 teams in the ECPL. If Tavistock leave (I understood that is not final) and St Austell and Wadebridge pull out then that leaves 20. Add up to another 7 new entrants and the ECPL could have at least 27 teams for next season. Plenty for a two division set up.
    That leaves 11 teams in the new St Piran L:eague.  Will the FA allow this to happen ?

    Hi Willy. I did actually follow St Day about 10 years ago - until they started forking out ridiculous money. Rumours of cars being given to player also. 
    Now I just visit different grounds most weeks and try and see the better footballing sides in the league - St ives, Helston and Penryn my favourites to be honest. Enjoyed Illogan towards the end of the season also. And your boys at Vogue have had some good results lately.

    You sound like a superannuated Magpies fan...you're not, are you ? If I'm reading your runes correctly, you think the Tinners were fortunate to beat Culdrose because of an incorrect refereeing decision. Were you in line with the last defender ? I am advised by one who was that Tommy Rot has made you a nocturnal visitation. How interesting, however, that over many years the little happenstances of football even themselves out. I clearly remember the Tinners losing 3-2 to Culdrose in the equivalent feature because Neil Harvey disallowed a Matt Harris "goal" that was approximately three feet over the line. On another occasion, my old chum Asa disallowed what would have been a last minute St Just winner scored by Darren Ball in a St Just-Culdrose 1-1 draw in the Cup. Subsequently, the pint Asa was presented with in the Clubhouse and the congratulatory enconium accompanying it led to a complaint to the League Management Committee. Didn't matter. The Tinners went to Culdrose and won the replay 3-0.
    Junior football, David187 ? Well, at least we won't have been forced into it because of physical assaults on referees, unlike the shower in Smacktown. And the pitch actually belongs to us rather than the council. Our clubhouse has never been repossessed by the brewery, nor turned into a sort of front for other kinds of business dependent on such a range of vices that they could make Babylon look like a Methodist Chapel. I know what you mean about the Combo becoming like junior football. Unfortunately that is where it has been dragged by the self-interested clique from the Porthleven bog and Helston sheltered bungalow-land. But we're founder members, the only ever-present team, and we're loyal to Cornwall despite coming from a separatist European socialist republic. As Robert Graves said in "The Cuirassiers of the Frontier", "a rotten tree lives only in its rind."
    Anyway, no harm done ! At least we've cancelled Brexit.

    Goalie was Tom Pilbeam I’ve never seen 2 better saves at this standard and your stand in keeper was superb, great place to play football, thanks for the hospitality after the game. 
    Hallelujah someone finally seeing Perranwell for what they are, don’t know what’s happened to them recently, they have gone from giving everyone a good game to lying down and playing dead.

    St Ives decided against applying after much conversation amongst the committee and team. This time last year we were struggling to get 10 men most Saturdays, we are instead hoping to retain our playing squad and add a second team to the club. 
    Sometimes you have to know your limits and Bude away on a Tuesday in August will never be achievable from here for us.
