  1. The West Cornwall Flexi League is looking for one more team to enter the competition. Games are held on Wednesday evenings at Penwith College in Penzance at 1830 and 20:00. The aim of the League is to get non-Saturday players playing the game, as such no senior players are permitted and your team can only feature a maximum of three players that are deemed to be commanding a place within a Saturday team. If you are interested or want to find out more, please get in touch. Dave Bartlam flexileague@outlook.com
  2. In many cases, I would expect that the Committee would leave the decision to the club's anyway.
  3. The clubs were the ones that had the vote to allow a potential 17 teams into the league. The club's decided not to allow Lanner to enter (due to facilities) and St Ives Reserves not to enter (because they are a newly formed team). Therefore, the club's had their say and their opinions won. I wasn't at the Combo AGM but I can imagine that their officers abstained from voting on this matter. Thatis hpw it should be. The member clubs have their say and the majority prevail. The Cornwall FA have no say on who enters what league. They are simply the governing body of all affiliated football in the county. They let the league's run themselves and only get involved when absolutely necessary. The club's had their say, it's the way democracy works. Now, let's get on with 19/20 and go again
  4. I recon we will see players registered with different leagues across the board! Barrie Wyatt was a good example for this last season - Praze in Trelawny, Illogan in Combo and Helston in SWPL. Who will he play for in St Piran? Regardless, done well for each of his three clubs. Last season, the most teams I saw a player registered for on a Saturday was 7! The notice of approach notifications took up a whole page on my system. Long gone are the days where players stay with one club. Wendron would be very good at this - teams in SWPL, St Piran, Combo and Trelawny. Are they the only side in Cornwall to be represented in four different Saturday Leagues?
  5. Exactly my thoughts. Do you think the combo and ECPL are regretting not taking it on?
  6. That's really nice to know, thanks Paul. The offers stands - always happy to help where I can, as you know
  7. Is there anything I can do to help with regards to your Full Time? I do consider myself to be pretty good with that and the Whole Game System so if I can help in any way to sort it out, I’d be more than happy to.
  8. The Sunday League do it - teams that aren't in the Sunday League's themselves play in the County Cup
  9. You forgot "all round good guy and snappy dresser" 😘😘
  10. At the AGM in a few weeks time. I've created a number of drafts of how the League could look next season and sent these to a few of the guys on the Committee. One of those drafts did include a League with five divisions - however you don't need to be Carol Vorderman to work out we don't have enough teams to make five divisions viable, so it is likely our lowest Division next season will be Division Three. With the news that more teams have applied for the Combination League vacancies, it leaves us with less clubs again. As soon as the Combo declares it's League structure following their AGM, we will know what teams we have and have an accurate list of potential League structures. Those will be spoken about and a decision made at the Trelawny League AGM
  11. I'm pretty sure that to become a member club, you have to be elected first. Definitely worth checking with @Steve Carpenter to make sure you don't get it wrong because that would only lead to further criticism which isn't what you want. It was just a thought I had a moment ago (D) Each Club shall be empowered to send two delegates to an Annual General Meeting. Each Club shall be entitled to one vote only. Not less than 14 days’ notice shall be given of any Meeting. (E) Clubs who have withdrawn their Membership of the Competition during the season being concluded or who are not continuing Membership shall be entitled to attend but shall vote only on matters relating to the season being concluded.

(I) Officers and Management Committee members shall be entitled to attend and vote at an Annual General Meeting.
  12. Paul, the league are trying to survive because they've had an exodus of teams. No-one can look at the Combination League negatively for trying to survive. I don't see that tools posts anymore but I can obviously see you replying, don't worry about it. Combo didn't want this situation, neither did Trelawny. But you have to do what you have to do. It is, of course up to your member clubs to decide whether a club can enter. Out of interest, as only five or six clubs remain in the combination league as it stands, are they the only ones eligible to vote at your AGM?
  13. They're just trying to survive, I can't take that away from them. It's just frustrating for us
