  1. i spotted this on a fb page and it lightened a bit of a grim day. The Devon & Cornwall music festival has been cancelled - they couldn't decide who to put on first - The Jam or Cream
  2. Does anyone happen to have any Penwithick team photos from about 1972 - 1975 that they could post ? My late brother, David Collings, played for them about then and it would be nice to have 'a memory'. Thanks
  3. My bank won't let me use 'beefstew' as a password - they say it isn't stroganof ! apologies if its a repeat.
  4. Unfortunately my old school, hard line, realistic approach is no longer fashionable on top of which the leagues are now little more than puppets being operated by the FA. I think Cornwall FA should be telling us what we 'can' or 'can't' or 'must' do but not what we 'should' do. Any league decision can be appealed to Cornwall FA. If that same body has already stated what we 'should' do then it has, in affect, pre-judged any appeal and it is pointless doing anything other than follow their advice. In this instance I think Cornwall FA is wrong but the league will move on and thi
  5. there may be some confusion about the issue here. The scenario is that a full squad of 16 players all get told to isolate after a match. Considering that the match itself is not classed as 'close contact' and assuming that they don't all live or work together then these 16 players have either been really unlucky or perhaps really irresponsible. Clearly they cannot play the following week and so the fixture will not be fulfilled. Should the match be postponed or awarded to their opponents ? In considering the answer it would have to be considered that the players may be to blame
  6. you'll have to address that to Cornwall FA i'm not bright enough to understand that Harry - but i guess you are having a whinge.
  7. Just received an email from CFA basically stating that they have changed their advice - a whole team can go out and get themselves into isolation and the rest of the clubs should pay the price - that's the final straw for me. Good luck everybody.
  8. The Duchy League has a few issues arising around players testing positive for covid or being notified to self-isolate and the affect that has on fixtures. No player with recognised symptoms or who has had a positive test or has been officially told to self-isolate should be playing football until the relevant time has passed. In reality, all other players pose an unknown/potential threat but the Government and FA deem this to be acceptable in order to keep the game going based on the principal that the game is in the open air and all clubs should have covid-safe procedures in place.

  10. Well we should be back in action Saturday, was it too much to ask for a couple of dry days first.

  11. A full set of Duchy League fixtures are planned. Wouldn't it be great if we could kiss goodbye to 2020 with three trouble free Saturdays of football.

  13. Paid our final farewells to Brian this afternoon, so sad that these occasions are so restricted at the moment but the County FA, Duchy League and Launceston Cup were all represented. Cornwall FA's Geoff Lee paid a fitting tribute.
  14. As a mark of respect and appreciation to the Duchy League President, Brian Conyon MBE, who passed away last weekend, Pensilva FC are planning to have a round of applause before their match this weekend. This seems like a very fitting way to say ‘thank you’ and ‘goodbye’ to a true friend of the Duchy League and I hope many other clubs will do likewise. Brian has been President of the League since 2010. Brian's background was in refereeing, officiating as high up as the Football Combination and he gave outstanding service to Cornwall FA Council for over 50 years. He became CCFA Preside
  15. I'm sorry to have to report that the Duchy League President, Brian Conyon, passed away last night at the age of 83. Brian gave a lifetime's service to football as a referee, Cornwall FA Council member and former President. I believe he stepped down as President of the Launceston & District Cup the season before last.
