    I believe Liam Chapman has been recruited and about a dozen new players have joined the club.  Has the makings of a decent game.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Yes.  It's the players that are infected.  Provided the facilities are Covid safe and cleaned there isn't a problem with the first team playing.
     
    Thank you Dave.  It does get a bit tedious with the continual questioning.

    In simple terms because their situation didn't develop as it could have done.  A bit of a bland answer I'll grant you but I'm not going to go into great and graphic detail as each of the roughly 13 or 14 matches that have had COVID postponements so far have all been under different sets of circumstances and there is nothing to be gained by going through each one on here.  For each case we look at the number of positive tests, the numbers awaiting test results, those displaying symptoms and those that have to isolate due to not being double jabbed.  Each case is given careful consideration bearing in mind the (incomplete) list of factors above and believe me when I say the clubs are as frustrated with it as we all are.

    Confirming whether the virus is present or not is impossible.  Having lost an uncle to this disease I am all too aware of the dangers it brings but there are always going to be some harsh realities and one of those is that there is no guarantee that any venue is virus free.
    It gets tedious when having to repeat the same responses on different threads.  I would refer you to the FA guidance link on the thread about Ludgvan.

    Not going to happen.  The cub presented their situation to the league and a decision was made.  A consistent approach to all cases has been taken.
    You may not like the approach taken and that's your perogative but those of us that have to make these decisions will continue to do so in as fair a way as possible.  If you and your fellow anonymous snipers want to carry on feel free but for me this conversation is over.
