  1. Great report! Thought Rosenquest had a very good game. The result flatters Parkway, but still a good win.
  2. If there is one weakness in the squad, it is a lack of quality cover for Carter. Hopefully will be addressed soon, or it could end up being costly.
  3. Great to see Friday night football back at Bolitho. Hopefully we will see a few more Friday night home games this season!
  4. This is actually a Western League forum and as Tavi like Parkway is close to Cornwall, it makes sense to discuss them as well. Obviously in some people’s narrow view of things the forum is just for Parkway bashing. If Parkway ever ended up in same league as Truro they would share a forum section.
  5. What the hell are you going on about?
  6. Who do people think are the favourites for the east division? Probably harder to call with big names like Parkway, Tavi, Exmouth and Argyle no longer in league. Do Torpoint have a chance?
  7. Antonio! Looked a tidy player. Solid performance from Parkway. Controlled the game from start to finish. Fletcher Williams was decent in midfield as well
  8. Any info on new grandstand? Size? Timetable for completion etc? What other improvements need to be made? Am I right in saying 2 turnstiles and perimeter fencing? Had a debate on Twitter. A load of fans from Chipping Sudbury and other clubs unhappy with the club being put in Hellenic. However there needs to be a drift west of the league, which hopefully the restructuring will allow. Certainly an opportunity for more Devon clubs to go up. Chipping Sodbury is closer to London than Cornwall so something needs to change! The Fa should assist clubs with travel expenses for any journey over a certain length. The RFU do this and rugby clubs similar in size to step 5/6 clubs travel long distances for matches. Certainly if there was a club promoted to step 4 against its wishes, there is an argument that it could have been given to best runner up ppg (Parkway). Personally think Street should have demoted to Western 1. They had no financial or ground grading issues. As for not enough volunteers, surely there isn’t much difference in running a step 5 or step 6 club?
  9. Whilst you would always take promotion, it may be good for the club to consolidate its position. Back to back promotions would have left the club a lot to do in a short period of time with regards to ground grading. Clubs that progress too quickly have sometimes unraveled just as quickly as well. If squad is kept together, Parkway will be probably be favourites to win the league. It would also be nice to go up as champions as well. Not taking anything for granted, a lot of tough teams in the league - but looking forward to it; especially the games against Tavi!
  10. Thanks for clarifying. However can’t understand why two division model was not put forward earlier, with all the travel concerns. St Pirans had almost identical footprint to swpl west!!
  11. Why can’t Combination and East Cornwall league just be given step 7 status? Surely far simpler 🤔
  12. Agreed. Current situation isn’t fair on clubs who want to start making plans for next season, as well as arrange preseason friendlies against teams in seperate leagues.
  13. In the past when teams pulled out (ie street) they would automatically be given bottom spot thus reprieving another club (ie Barnstaple). This is no longer a set rule, reprieves are handed out last. If there is a vacancy at step 4, if will go to best runner up ppg nationally which is Parkway. Everything is up in the air until fa make announcement. Barnstaple may stay up or Parkway might go up depending on fa decision. Personally think there should be more of a set rule
  14. Great season and nice to finish with some silverware. Look forward to seeing further progress next season
  15. Can’t make all the games but always look forward to the media from Graham Lloyd and Mike Parrish. Many thanks for your efforts this season
  16. Rob Farkins as captain is a no brainer. A natural leader. If the squad is kept together, they will be big favourites for the league next season and would be competitive in southern league is promoted this summer.
  17. Chipping Sodbury sum up the difference between swpl and western. We all know the top sides in the swpl compare favourably with western league teams and no doubt Tavi and Exmouth will be do well next season; but if Parkway were 3-1 up against a mid table swpl team, they would end up with 5 or 6 goals. Western league has real strength in depth.
  18. Excellent first season, with still a possibility of promotion, depending on what fa decide. Two cup finals to look forward to as well. If it is still Western League, then this squad, if kept together, will start as strong favourites.
  19. Really good second half performance. Carter was impressive. Always felt that if Parkway could stay in the race to the final, they would have an excellent chance. Two tough final games for Willand, last one against title rivals Bitton. Out of interest - what is being built opposite the clubhouse. Is it a small car park?
  20. He's suspended for next 2 Parkway games
  21. Defence was sloppy when Farks went off. Good to see Bentley back at the club
  22. The extra promotion place last season due to restructuring. From next season there will permanently be a second spot due to further restructuring, as the Fa aim for a symmetrical 1-2-4-8-16 pyramid.
