Two back to back wins for Portreath would take you out of the relegation zone and drop Wendron and Ludgvan in it.

Mind you if there is relegation from the Combo this season it would be sad to see wendron lose their SWPL place then perhaps being relegated from the combo.

We need a Combo Premier Division of perhaps 16 teams and a Div 1 of 16 teams.

We could then have a Premier Div Cup, Div 1 Cup and a League Cup.

Top 6 from each of the Mining and Fal/Hels to join when they amalgamate, unless they are a reserve team of a team already in the league then we go down the leagues to fill the spaces.

2 up, 2 down between each division with 2 up 2 down with the new super league.

What's wrong with my idea?

Premier League made up of top 16 teams from the combo

Penryn Athletic

Helston Athletic

Illogan RBL

St Agnes

Penzance

Falmouth Town

Perranwell

Newquay

St Day

RNAS Culdrose

Troon

St Just

St Ives Town

Porthleven

Mullion

Hayle

Div 1 made up of the bottom 4 from the combo and top six none reserve teams from each league.

Holman Sports Club

Ludgvan

Wendron United

Portreath

Robarts Arms

Goonhavern

Halstown

Four Lanes

Gwinear

Threemilestone

Falmouth Albion

Pendeen Rovers

Mousehole

Constantine

Chacewater

St Keverne

Obviously some minor work needed at some grounds to make Div 1 standard.

Great idea - I would fully support this. The ground criteria for entry to Div 1 could be relaxed, with the clubs having a certain period of time to upgrade and/or not allowed promotion to the premier division.

It does sound like a great idea CTB,

not sure if it would improve the standard though

What is needed to improve the standard is continual promotion and relegation in and out of the league. Due to the creation and subsequent expansion of the SWP there has been a number of Combo clubs promoted however no relegation. The lack of relegation partly explains why the bottom few clubs have a large negative goal difference, noticeably more than the leagues above and below.

The SWP is here to stay and the recently promoted clubs are unlikely to return to the Combination anytime soon, so let's change with the times. Keeping the top 16 together would create a strong premier division, with the bottom 4 mixed in with the best of Mining 1 and Fal/Hel 1 would be a reasonable Div 1. Might avoid the inevitable fixture backlog in May too.
