  1. 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
  2. Dave, you keep saying this. I can’t see anyone who’s been “suckered”. Clubs have voted with their feet for a variety of reasons; access to funding and chance to develop facilities, playing at the highest level they can and entry into the Senior Cup for some which, presumably, ECPL clubs will no longer have access to, given the numbers at steps 7 and 6. There have also been plenty of rumblings from these clubs as to the potential for more Plymouth clubs entering joining the ECPL, which isn’t popular. There also looks to be far less travelling in St Piran than ECPL for some clubs.
  3. 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?
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. It’s not a “rule”, only an agreement, which has now come to an end.
  8. Could see a few interesting team selections across the county once the evening games kick in and Peninsula season ends in that case
  9. That doesn’t look too bad a spread, geographically
  10. Think the inaugural league officers have already been put in place.
  11. I know a lot don’t like it, but I agree. Lot easier to keep everyone happy, which will be key with the amount of travelling in this league
  12. I actually think it could be a very competitive league. We may see some inconsistency due to players not being able to travel early/late on Saturdays but there are some good sides in the list expressing an interest.
