  1. Congratulations to St Cleer on promotion to Duchy Premier Division 2019/2020.
  2. Incorrect in your assumption. The Law was correctly applied, according to your report. No, I wasn't there.
  3. Looking forward to seeing the new site when it's all finalised and we know which Clubs are entered.
  4. Shame, really. I reffed this match and it was a pleasure to be in the middle for this one. Boro won with a penalty shootout. Both teams played attacking football and played in good spirits. I hope all the admin is thoroughly checked and the correct decision is made.
  5. Basically, it's the old Caution for Dissent towards Referee or Assistant Referee (C2). You have to play with 10 men for 10 minutes while he sits down and calms down. Rather than a £10 fine in the post on Monday, the team suffers. Especially in the last 10 minutes of the game because that, in effect, is game over for that player. I'm not sure what the fines or points are to the Club. It's harder to enforce in the Duchy League as there may not be dugouts and perimeter fences etc but I am starting to get used to it. Players will take a lot of getting used to it but I am ok with it. It works better when you use 'rolling subs' so not sure how popular it will be on swpl.
  6. Overall, rolling subs has worked well. It has been used as a time wasting tactics but I just add the time on. It gives managers an opportunity to take someone off for a few minutes to calm them down. Nobody wants to travel from east to west and back again and be on the bench for 90 minutes. That's why I took up the whistle !
  7. St Breward 3-2 Tregrehan Mills. Duchy Division 1. I haven't posted on here in ages as I upset a few folk last time. However, my ECFL match was cancelled and I got a call at 11am to ref this match. Both sides had recently been unhappy with my decision making, in separate instances, and I had had a lot of reports to write. So I sharpened my pencil before I got out of the car.......... And I thought I knew this game by now ! What a superb display of fitness and skill from both teams who played attacking football on a difficult surface. Both goalkeepers were busy and nobody could catch up with the speedy No17 from Tregrehan Mills, including myself. 10 out of 10 to both Assistant Referees who made unpopular decisions and supported me well. The point that I would like to make is that it took over 80 minutes before I received a single word of dissent and the individual was quick to apologise. No sin bins required. The same incident resulted in some push and shove which ended up with the only yellow card of the match. This is a credit to Duchy League football and the pace and quality was beyond what I would have expected in the higher leagues. A cracking game of football.
  8. Get on with the game !
