  1. Can't blame clubs for jumping ship. Now lets see that means in the East there are 16 teams 10 of which are reserve teams. Which means 6 teams able to get grants. Unfortunately just as before reserve teams can't get promotion so what was the point. The only word I can think of is 'suckered'

  3. Can anyone answer why officials of the ECPL were helping to set up the St Piran League at the same time. Why did they not resign from the ECPL
  4. Thank you for that. Yes the move to the NLS has upset a lot of people but what is certain is that the suits have no interest in Cornwall or its history. As I said all that has happened is that the FA have hijacked two leagues for what. It certainly isn't progress. My affinity to the ECPL is irrelevant, my views are of the protection of football at this level. The lure of grants etc does not apply to the reserve teams. What people must realise is there is a limit to how far a team can go. The SWPL is now a farce where you have the leagues being downgraded to include teams who will be hammered every week. When will the powers to be actually think about football at this level. It is not like London or Birmingham where you have hundreds of clubs within a 40 mile radius. I will be proved right. If the FA just stuck to the ECPL and Combo leagues then nothing would have changed. But no we have people serving on both committees. How fair is that. And yes the two leagues were not interested in setting up a new league because they were happy with what they had. But no and I say it again the suits 200 miles away put the jackboot in. They have shown their true colours in the female game and are now doing it at this level. I am sure everyone will try and make it work but unfortunately football is the loser. I will say it again there is only so far a club can go - think about that. And no I don't have a headache. My mind is clear - it is a big mistake but hey since when did common sense come into the equation. And guess what it will all change again after next season. But the FA will still put the boot in to local football. So good luck with that. You say 'The policy is that ANY club can start at the very bottom and have a clear path to the very top.' Didn't we already have that or am I missing something.
  5. So as I understand it if Torpoint reserves win the St Piran league they cannot be promoted to step 6 as their first team is already there. Thanks for clearing that up .
  6. QUESTION Can anyone advise promotion from the new step 7. Am I right in saying that reserve teams cannot gain promotion to step 6 or above if their first team is already at that level.
  7. Oh what have they done. Don't worry it will all change next season when the suits in London sit down and decide to change it again when they look back on double digit results. Shame when football becomes the loser.
  8. Steve Carpenter. Nothing has changed when half the teams in the new set up can't be promoted anyway just as before. Some progress. You have all jumped on the bandwagon because the suits 200 odd miles away say so. The only thing that will change is the name. The clubs stay the same promotion and relegation will stay the same so what's changed.
  9. cornishteddyboy Seems like you no more than the league. I just love clairvoyants. Can you do my lottery numbers. The jackboots have won. That's life I had no idea we lived in a state where the suits rule everything. I can just see them all at the cup final quaffing their champers and stuffing their faces with prawn sandwiches. To destroy two leagues is beyond me..
  10. No sir, There are enough teams left in the league already, just need a few more to make it a healthy 16 plus league. It just seems odd that Reserve teams who could not gain promotion from the ECPL or Combo also cannot get promotion from the St Piran League. So why are they leaving.
  11. Duh !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not getting desperate at all just using common sense. And countryman the furthest the league goes in to Devon is Plymouth and Tavistock. Just a few miles.
  12. ECPL As the suits seem to have got their way it would appear there are a number of extra vacancies to join the ECPL. This can include entries from ambitious Duchy League teams or from the Plymouth and West Devon league. The new step system makes no difference to the current status so the door is open. Please visit the Mitoo site to find contact details.
