  1. Matt Frost is the new manager of Callington Town's St Piran League outfit. He takes over from Dave McDowall after guiding Stoke Climsland to second place in the Duchy League at the time of the lock down.
  2. This should be a cracker as the pair finished the season as the top two before the lock down. In the league cup Mount Gould beat St Cleer 10-0, Godolphin Atlantic 16-0, Gerrans & St Mawes 3-1 and Foxhole 4-1 while St Dominick beat Veryan 4-0, St Minver 1-0 and Marjon 7-1. Strangely the pair had not met in the league.
  3. Amazing the University of Exeter have 8 teams
  4. Lets hope when it restarts that it is as close as it was last season before the lock down. Now we have promotion and relegation teams at the bottom will already start worrying.
  5. St Newlyn East voted in to the ECPL St Newlyn East have been voted into the ECPL for the 20/21 season. This makes the league constitution at 16 teams following the departure of Gerrans & St Mawes and North Petherwin. St Newlyn East came 9th out of 14 when they joined in the 2007/8 season but left the fiollowing season. The league also accepted to re instate the two up two down promotion and relegation from/to the Duchy League The 2020/21 constitution is now: Foxhole Looe Town Mount Gould Newquay Reserves Padstow United Plymouth Marjon Roche St Blazey Reserves St Cleer St Dominick St Minver St Newlyn East St Steven St Teath Torpoint Athletic 3rds Veryan
  6. I will settle for them winning it once every 30 years
  7. Well said. In effect there is no change - the leagues are still at the same level.
  8. I don't understand why DD keeps rabbiting on about the ECPL and Duchy being recreational. The Duchy is the next step below the ECPL as is the Trelawney and the Combo. If you join the two together you would have the ECPL clubs in the top division and the Duchy the next and so on downwards so there would be no change anyway. By renewing the promotion and relegation it takes away the onerous task of voting in or out of teams. A wise decision. So in effect there is no change in the natural order of status form SWPL, St Piran and ECPL and Combo. Surely this is what is wanted, a bit of clarity.
  9. The RRL East Cornwall League are awaiting the return of information regarding the upcoming season from its member clubs. In view of the lock down the league are unable to hold a visual AGM so have decided to send out emails to all member clubs asking to vote on a few points. The first being the acceptance of a new secretary and other members on to the committee. The second is to vote in a new member club for the 20/21 season. There appears to be no rule changes envisaged. With Godolphin Atlantic dropping out last season the league was reduced to 17 teams. It has always been the aim by the CCFA to reduce the constitution to 16 teams and this appears to have been accepted. North Petherwin and Gerrans & St Mawes decided to leave leaving 15 teams. To make it up to 16 teams the clubs have been invited to vote in one team from the following Gunnislake, St Newlyn East, St Columb Major, Alternun.
  10. Gerrans & St Mawes have returned to the Duchy League.
  11. IS THIS A SILLY QUESTION. We all know the leagues at the lower levels have been declared null & void but all these games have been played. I can imagine if a game is abandoned and could never be played but these games WERE PLAYED. Null & voiding the season is one thing but to completely eradicate a leagues results cannot be fair. These games were played, fines paid cautions or red cards, referees paid etc. So can anyone come up with a sensible reason why all results are expunged. It is easy to say - but the FA have made the decision and that is that. But is it. I can give you an example. A young girl played her first senior game for Plymouth Argyle Ladies a day after her 16th birthday. A record that can never be beaten unless someone plays their first game on their 16th birthday. Why should that record be expunged forever for playing in a game that was legally contested at the time. What about the 40 odd goals scored by St Dominick striker Keiran Ryall. All removed. My question is WHY ? I don't have a problem of a season being ended because of something like Covid 19 but surely all results must remain as a matter of record as the lock down happened after these games had been played. Any ideas.
  12. Saltash United have issued two statements: Saltash United Football Club are keen to explore the possibility of setting up a women’s football team ahead of the 2020-2021 Cornwall Women’s football league season. Playing at Kimberley Stadium, the Saltash United Women would have access to all the club’s facilities, including the Ashes Media tower and Ashes Bar & Function Suite. The club will provide all post-match hospitality and football kit/ equipment will be supplied. Both young and experienced players will be welcome however they must be 16 years of age or above. Are you currently managing a women’s team elsewhere and considering relocation? Or are you a player looking for the opportunity to develop and progress at Saltash United. Are you a local business, looking at getting involved in supporting a local womens football team? For all enquiries please contact Football Secretary & Club Welfare Officer, Scott Cooksley at saltashunited.fa@gmail.com. The incorporation of women’s football at Saltash United is the next key stage in the club’s aspirations to support the development of both male and female players in East Cornwall and West Devon. Saltash United Football Club are delighted to announce the appointment of Dave Hengle and Wes Westlake as the management duo of the newly formed Saltash United Women’s team, ahead of the 2020-2021 Cornwall Women's Football League season. Dave joins the Ashes from Lakeside Athletic Ladies of the Devon Womens Football League Premier Division where he has been manager for the last three and a bit seasons. During this time he has finished third and second, and his side were unbeaten up until COVID struck in the season that never was.. Dave will be partnered by his co-manager, and former Lakeside Ladies assistant Wes Westlake, who is the manager of Dobwalls Football Clubs’ Kitchen Kit South West Peninsula League West Division side. Wes has also had previous management experience with Elburton Villa and Plymstock United. The club is looking forward to working alongside Dave and Wes as it pushes to increase female participation in football at Saltash United.
  13. The problem is both leagues will have to wait until their AGM's and until social distancing is lifted I cannot see that happening for a few more months yet.
  14. The other thing is how many clubs at this level DON'T PAY but players pay subscriptions.
  15. Oh for the days of teams recruiting from local instead of players chasing the cash and managers paying it.
