  1. Polperro v St Minver ON, Killigarth passed a pitch inspection
  2. Polperro goals from Matt Barton (no.10) and Dale Hooper (no.17). Disappointed not to have killed the game off at 2-0 but Hayle had their chances as well and we rode our luck at times. Nice set up and good hospitality, good luck to Hayle in the next round 👏🏻
  3. A very honest reply 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
  4. I don’t call £27 a ball a decent deal! A Mitre match grade ball can be bought (in bulk) for around half of that.
  5. Watching as a fascinated observer from the East of the county, it baffles (and angers/amuses me) that anyone would pay players to play at this level of football. In the St Piran and ECPL up this way , nobody is paying, or has done (to my knowledge) in the last 10 or more years. In fact, the majority of clubs probably rely on players’ subs to pay their way and, in some cases, keep their clubs solvent. With many clubs struggling to survive these days, the pressure to bring in players is becoming ever greater and things become desperate, with players offered money by teams they probably aren’t good enough for. Money being paid to very average players is one of the causes of the current demise of clubs. Every year we see a shrinking pool of players and clubs, committee people and volunteers. Imagine working all week and all summer on the upkeep of facilities to see a mercenary rock up to your club, get paid, then move on when a fiver more is offered. Insanity.
  6. Spent too much time on the bench at Truro, or playing out of position at right back. Great signing for Parkway where he’ll play centre mid, his favourite position. Joins his other Looe mate, Jack Calver, another top player
  7. Thanks Steve, does the maximum 50% reserve team rule still apply? If so, is this a combined number across the East and West divisions or is it per division?
  8. I’m sure a lot of clubs will apply. Same travelling as the current ECPL set up but access to FA funding for step 7 clubs. May be a mix of teams applying, as I think the max. 50% reserve team rule will apply still?
  9. Nope, clubs were asked to submit provisional notices of withdrawal, which can’t come into effect until an AGM so can be retracted at any point up until then.
  10. Yes, regrettably, once we received news of the withdrawals of Liskeard, Torpoint and then Saltash, the club felt we were left with no option, as our closest away game would be St Austell or St Dennis. Whilst we are keen to progress as a club, that progress has to be realistic and sustainable and it was felt that 13-14 away trips west of Truro was neither. Hopefully the St Piran league can reinvent itself as a regionalised set up (as per Step 6) which will be more realistic in terms of travel, yet offer the non-reserve sides the opportunity to better themselves as the likes of St Dennis, Godolphin, Dobwalls etc have done in the recent past.
  11. It’s not a “rule”, only an agreement, which has now come to an end.
  12. Could see a few interesting team selections across the county once the evening games kick in and Peninsula season ends in that case
