  1. Plymstock Polperro was 2-4 not 2-3. Barton, Cordner 2 and Gilbert
  2. I didn’t, I missed it but thank you.
  3. Agree, thought the officials had a good game
  4. Not quite Mike,more than held our own for 35 min and Falmouth indebted to an unbelievable save from Barnes to keep out Matt Barton’s goalbound header. A good goal from Marcello Jones denied us what looked like a half time clean sheet, before two sloppy goals either side of the break gave Falmouth the win their quality deserved. Our lads will have learned a lot from today gave a good account of themselves against a side 2 leagues higher. Thanks to Falmouth for their hospitality from players, management and supporters alike, a good day out at a top club. Good luck to Falmouth in the next round
  5. All depends on numbers. There aren’t enough sides now for two leagues. If more than about 4 or 5 go to the Step 7 league, one ECPL division would be sensible. I would agree that a merger/partnership with the Duchy League would be sensible, with the ECPL becoming the equivalent of the Premier League to the Football League. Drive standards of facilities up and make it a League that clubs need to show ambition to be in again.
  6. Nothing to do with the Step 7 rules. There was an agreement between the ECPL and Duchy League whereby only one team would be promoted each year. I understand this agreement has now been relaxed, paving the way for the ECPL to fill any gaps left by sides being promoted to Step 7. However, as pointed out at the CCFA meeting to discuss the new leagues, a side in Trelawney Premier has only a one league (Combo) gap, whereas a side in Duchy Premier has two (ECPL 1 and Premier) divisions between them and Step 7. ECPL will have to decide whether to move to one league or accept multiple teams from Duchy. This two step gap was, I believe, Lakeside’s reason for their sideways move back into P&D last summer. Food for thought... The current National FA Rules only allow for 25% of the new leagues’ quorums to be reserve sides, obviously aimed at maximising progression of clubs through the pyramid. I understand this is being discussed by CCFA with regard to the new leagues but if 25% remains as the limit there won’t be any room for these reserve teams in Step 7
  7. Game on at Polperro. Referee seems terrified of rain, judging by his calls this morning but our U15 have played on it this morning and it’s 100% fine
  8. Polperro 9 Ludgvan 1, one way traffic for majority of the game but credit to Ludgvan for their efforts and leaving the dressing rooms spotless.
