  1. Any of these officials could easily have offered a few quid to their chosen club secretary  and nobody would have known, or much cared, but to do it by way of sponsorship and showing off their largesse to the world (or at least the tiny little world of Cornish football) is just not smart. Whatever your opinion of these sponsoring officials, it still looks and feels like a conflict of interest and their decisions when refereeing their benefactor clubs and those clubs around them in the league will always feel tainted to a greater or lesser extent!

  2. It’s not illegal, just not very smart, anything which could be interpreted as a conflict of interest by a relatively senior referee, by local standards, is only going to cause confusion at best. No matter how many times he officiates at Millbrook, how about the teams close above or below? Should they lose it will surely invite calls of “Of course we lost, the ref’s a Millbrook man, doesn’t want us to catch them up/get away from them!”

    In my humble opinion, it’s probably something better avoided.

    Is it the referees own business? 

    Probably not. A conflict of interest should certainly be the leagues business, and for one to be fair and transparent in all our footballing activities is surely in everyone’s interest. 

    On the other hand, I haven’t a clue who or what you’re talking about (nothing new there then!).

    Starting to look an awful lot like bullying to me peeps. 

    The fella is allowed to express an opinion.... Like all of us! 

    I do agree Older, Leeds has indeed been bullying a lot of people for an awful long time! 

    However, the forum needs its trolls; the likes of Leeds and Big Al. I’m sure that if they didn’t exist we’d have to invent them (unless someone already has, Dave Deacons alter ego, or Olders? We all have a dark side)👿🔱🔥‼️

    Leeds utd - Terry??? What are you on about?

    Dave Deacon - can you please confirm that I am not Leeds United!? Not overly keen on you sharing my identity (don’t want personal insults) but would be keen for you to confirm that I’m not Leeds United 

    Leeds has been denying that he’s Ieedsunited for years! However I am concerned about your recent habit of talking to yourself. Perhaps your regular appearance and disappearance is down to whether or not the doctor lets you out on your own

    I wish I had the longevity of Leeds - I just enjoy the debates raised by him.  He has obviously got some links in Bodmin - Newquay - St Blazey and St Austell so it’s got to be a player or coach. 

    Either way - I can confirm it’s certainly not me! 

    Thanks for the compliment though 

    That’s exactly what I’d expect you to say Leeds‼️
