  1. Because August's fixtures have been sent to the clubs via email.
  2. After a vote in the AGM, it has been confirmed that both Altarnon and Gunnislake have been welcomed as new members to the ECPL from the Duchy Premier. Look forward to visiting them! The season will begin on Sat 7th August.
  3. Confirmed tonight that Mount Gould will also be promoted from the ECPL to the Devon Football League.
  4. Thanks for replying Steve. Do you know how many gaps you have to fill? In the Eastern Division for my interest.
  5. Hi Steve, Will the teams who have applied to the St Piran setup be confirmed before the AGM and be present, or is the decision to be voted on, on the night? Thanks.
  6. Allows teams to meet up and train beforehand? Get a little fitness and shake off the rustiness.
  7. Anyone looking for a friendly? Torpoint 3rds would like away games for April and May please. Email callumbays@hotmail.co.uk

  9. So far today I have seen abuse from Mount Gould, Padstow & St Dom on twitter about the decision to not continue the season and I’m still not finished scrolling. Why is it acceptable? It was a democratic decision and some voted against. SWPL fine clubs/players for far less. Those that are happy to pipe up with negativity should volunteer to help run the league rather than sit and complain about it.
  10. Torpoint. Not bothered about distance though. We love a fun bus! (damn 'Rona)
  11. Hi all, Was wishful thinking and imagining the return of football. Anyone got any recommendations of where to visit in the west of Cornwall for friendlies for Torpoint? Visited Wendron last summer which was an excellent pitch and the hospitality to match. We did have Penzance pencilled in but was rescheduled due to the league starting. Was thinking St Agnes as I know that's a top pitch and club house. Similar suggestions to see the other half of the county. Thanks.
  12. As time goes on improvements will be made. The ECPL Rules need to be re-written but any amendments won't come into effect until a 21/22 season anyway, as rule changes can't be implemented in the middle of a season. Hopefully I can get them edited to modernise all the detail, one example being player registrations and transfers via the WGS. As you can imagine, last summer wasn't ideal for much progression with the only communication being via email rather than face to face at AGMs and so on. I'm sure any ideas would be welcomed if anyone has any.
  13. Padstow 0 - 3 Torpoint Ath Goals from Easterbrook x2 & Blair. Lineup: WestallM, Bays, Quintrell, WhiteS, Hussey, Cotter (45), Rowe (65), Payn, Blair, Easterbrook, WestallC (70). Subs: Bartolini (45), Trethewey (25), Robbins (20). Over 5weeks since our last game at home vs St Cleer and it was a rusty encounter after a long trip to Padstow. Before the game, with obvious factors to consider, 3pts was still the minimum objective and I’d have taken that with another clean sheet. Mission complete. But the game didn’t have as much quality as we’d still expect and we’ll be disappointed not to have scored more, despite a good performance from the home goalkeeper. The game started with both sides struggling to complete passes but Padstow in particular very keen to give the ball to Torpoint goalkeeper by going long into his box. Quintrell showed the most composure at the back and began to feed into Payn & Blair in midfield or WestallC up top. As the game grew, Torpoint did find themselves in the Padstow half time after time but crosses or final balls were honestly atrocious, with the biggest culprit being Foul Throw 3 himself with a headrush being that far up the pitch! But the signs were there that with an improvement in quality the deadlock would be broken. WestallC in a bid to impress his visiting girlfriend, teed up an overhead which went narrowly wide. The opening goal came from Easterbrook. With Padstow camped on the edge of their box, WestallC ran out of space and squared on the edge to Easterbrook, skinned three players with great footwork and found himself inside the box and drove a fierce shot into the bottom corner, 1-0. The 2nd goal was fortuitous, but deserved based on the play. Blair was played through on goal in a race vs defender and goalkeeper. Goalkeeper had the trump card but kicked it into the onrushing Blair to loop back over and into the net for his 1stcompetitive goal for the 3rd team. WestallC also went close In the first half with a header and Hussey delivered a number of corners which the goalkeeper dealt with well. 2-0 HT. The 2nd half was virtually one way traffic, but the bobbly pitch and lack of match fitness began to show. A mixture of complacency and fatigue was enough to not add to the scoreline, until Easterbrook scored again late in the game. Robbins was played through on goal on his return (#back) and shouts of “why is he not sprinting?” reminded me of briefing advise I once received, “know your audience” cos he was at his full speed. Composure as usual and he squared for Easterbrook to touch and finish. Hussey will AGAIN feel heartbroken as a free kick from 30yds crashed against the crossbar, the 3rd time this season it’s happened to the free kick “specialist”. It will come… Back to Padstow Social Club after a welcome shower and we again defeated the host side with a 9-4 victory in attendance for a drink. The onion rings were decent! Now another mini break with 16 days til our meeting with St Minver at The Mill in hope of doing the double over them. Big fixture Saturday though as it’s the Duchy Xmas Beer Run with months of unspent kitty and regret for Sunday morning. Up The Point!
