  1. No they're not saying that. If they were, the suspension would have been overturned completely. A couple of points that may make it clearer for you. 1. Serious cases, and from what I gather this would fall into that category, from the start of this season are dealt with by an FA commission not a County FA one. 2. The recommended penalties for serious offences normally have a range and a 'usual' start point which is typically in the middle of that range. I suspect that in this case, once found guilty, the start point of 112 days was handed down and this was then reduced to the 56 day minimum on appeal.
  2. Provisional new date for both of these fixtures is 23rd Oct.
  3. St Dominick v Penryn Reserves off due to COVID at Penryn.
  4. The draw for the second round of the League Cup took place at last night's Committee Meeting resulting in the following fixtures: Ludgvan/Torpoint v St Dominick/St Day St Dennis/Morwenstow v Truro Mousehole/Perranporth v St Ives/Polperro Sticker/St Austell v St Agnes/Millbrook Bude/Wendron v Mullion St Mawgan/Callington v Porthleven/Falmouth Saltash Borough v Perranwell/Launceston Hayle/Illogan v Redruth/Helston Matches to take place on 6th November.
  5. I believe Liam Chapman has been recruited and about a dozen new players have joined the club. Has the makings of a decent game.
  6. With the circumstances presented to the league there was no hesitation in postponing last nights game. The outbreak is largely limited to the reserve squad and as the incubation period progresses the final number of positive case will become clearer.
  7. There are significant problems with the County version of Full-Time (slightly different to the version that the leagues use which, despite what some may say, is working fine if its set up correctly) and the software that runs all County FA websites. The FA IT department are promising a fix as soon as they can. Soon and please don't! The pile up of snags on the various systems means that things are taking longer to get done and the last thing the staff need is to be constantly interupted by phone calls about the draw.
  8. St Blazey v Wadebridge tonight Tom. Launceston without a game.
  9. Millbrook have advised the League that anyone attending this game this evening should be aware that due to resurfacing works there are road closures affecting access to the ground. If driving this means that you will need to park further away from the ground. If you get there before the closure @7pm and park at the ground you may not be able to leave.
  10. Can't lay this one at our door I'm afraid Tom. When the re-org was implemented the FA allowed a 12 month dispensation for those clubs whose grounds didn't meet the grading criteria which the slope at Perranwell didn't. The club were very aware of this and were working on a plan with the Parish Council to get the ground 'levelled' and were granted an extension. Obviously the work hasn't been done and my understanding is that progress with the Council has been slow. With the FA now standing firm on all grading matters in the NLS and the Feeder Leagues Perranwell had to find an alternative ground by the end of this season or leave the league. The pitch at Tregye is good and the changing facilities are excellent. Hopefully the club and the Parish Council can ensure a return to the village in the not too distant future once the slope issue is resolved.
  11. Redruth United v Helston Athletic Reserves postponed due to COVID.
  12. Lets not forget that despite the new/reformed teams that have been elected in by the clubs the League is way down on the peak membership of @97 teams in 12-13. Without those that joined the League for this season the numbers would have been in the low 40's. After the leagues formation the number of clubs/teams declined continually until 17-18 and then stabilized @67. The re-org in 19-20 saw the league lose 14 teams and when you take that into account numbers have been stable since. The biggest factor is that over the last 10 seasons the number of referee's has declined faster than the number of clubs/teams.
  13. Nothing to be suspicious of. Nothing at all to do with the FA. The league sees all of the positive test results but that's only one part of the equation.
