  1. Marjons seconds are looking for friendly games on Saturday 26 June and Saturday 3 July with 2.15 pm ko, we have Manadon 3G booked so can host the game at a cost of £50 each team including ref costs. Please get in touch if you're interested, thanks. Steve 07974091269
  2. Are ECPL considering a cup competition similar to Pirans league or Devon league or is it a case of waiting until next season now?
  3. If any team is looking for a friendly, please drop me a message, thanks Steve 07974091269
  4. I’m told we are covered from insurance perspective as coverage is for 10 months from start of season. If anybody wants a game, please get in touch:07974091269
  5. Would it be possible for teams in ECPL to enter the cup competition if numbers are short? Either that or would teams be interested in playing friendlies as Marjons seconds are looking for away games from April? Sorry if this request is not allowed. Thanks
  6. Are friendlies allowed after 29 March, thinking about insurance etc and if we are covered or if it’s needed? Marjons seconds keen to play games to get back to some kind of normality, would need to be away games as don’t know when the college is open again. Thanks for your help
  7. I think that would put us (Marjons) in with Mount Gould, Torpoint and St Dominick, ie the teams currently 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the league. 🤔 No easy solution to this, how about a random cup draw, the winners all go into one group and play a mini-league and the losers do likewise, that way everyone gets 8 games and in theory have something to play for in each game? Or average points per game to decide the league you go into but this can be unfair depending on who you have played, eg Looe have only played 6 games including 3 of the top 5
  8. A much improved performance from Marjons after some lacklustre performances recently who can count themselves unlucky not to take home all 3 points. Marjons started the brighter and took the lead with a great strike from distance from Ethan Jones. SD created little throughout the first half with Marjons snuffing out any attempts on goal until a few minutes before half time when SD were awarded a penalty for a fairly innocuous challenge, the penalty was scored and 1-1 half time. The second half was played in the same manner with the pace of Marjons being a threat, it was from a break away that Marjons won a penalty when Jones was brought down. In truth, I’ve seen these not given but grateful all the same, however the home keeper pulled off a great save to keep the score level. Not long after, Marjons did retake the lead when James Greenley scored with a nice finish when put clean through. SD did create some chances without really testing the keeper but an equaliser did come from another penalty. The decision was frankly appalling with the attacker sliding and falling into the defender (that’s as generous as I can put it) with the referee somehow pointing to the spot. When the home linesman and supporters are saying it’s a poor decision it says it all. To compound matters, Marjons were down to 10 men as a result of the decision. SD won several corners in the closing stages which were a threat in the strong wind but Marjons held out. Hopefully this performance and result will get Marjons back on track after a promising start to the season that went off the rails recently
  9. Bit of a mixed view from the Marjon camp. We thought that it was the best we had played against Torpoint over the 4 meetings over the last 2 seasons and even when 2 down thought that the game was still winnable. We failed to deal with the set pieces all night which was the undoing with the corner delivery really exceptional. Fair play to Torpoint, they took their chances and in truth, we did struggle to break down the back line with some of the forwards missing. The last 15 minutes told with the game effectively up and giving game time to the squad which enabled Torpoint to get 3 late goals. Overall, an improved start to the season for Marjon who still have only 2 players older than 19 in the match day squad. The lads are developing well - a good test today against Veryan to test their character after this defeat.
  10. Most decisions made resulted in long explanation as to why it was made, ruined the flow of the game.
  11. Fair report tbh although a draw was a fair result for me with Marjon comfortably being the better team in first half and Foxhole the second. Credit where it’s due, Foxhole were a good bunch of lads who played the game in a good spirit. The constant, needless long delays in play made it a difficult watch it has to be said...
  12. Heard last night that Mount Gould have been accepted into the Devon League and Windmill are replacing them (also a Plymouth team). Maybe we are getting closer to the structure being confirmed. Or it's a false rumour (although it did come from a Windmill player)..
  13. Marjons is open, it was closed for a few days as a precautionary measure for a ‘suspected case’ but opened again on Tuesday - I can only assume it was negative result.
  14. Having barely played a game in 2020 due to postponements, Marjons needed a strong start against a St Dom side that hard scored 51 goals and conceded only 5 in their last 8 games to stand a chance of progression. Having lost the toss and playing against the very strong wind, Marjons started ok and scored a goal which was ruled out for offside (dubiously I’m told but couldn’t see from my angle). That ‘goal’ was probably the warning Dom needed who then proceeded to control the entire first half, scoring freely throughout although it must be said, some abysmal defending from the home team gifted Dom many of those chances. 7-0 half time and the scoreline reflected the game, Marjons were given a lesson on finding space, passing quickly and putting teams under pressure when in possession. The second half was different affair. Win the second half was the message, cut out the silly mistakes and show some pride. Credit to the Marjons lads (8 of starting side are 18 or younger), they did just that. Dom probably dropped off a bit to be fair but chances were at a premium and Marjons managed to pull one back from a corner. Something to build on... Good luck to St Dom in the final, said it before and first half showed it again yesterday, the best team we have played all season. Should be a great final with the best 2 teams playing imo. MG have a lot of experience and quality players, tough one to call
  15. MG have applied to Devon league for next season League not a done deal yet for MG, they haven’t played Foxhole, St Dom or St Minver and have to go away to Veryan and Torpoint
