Updates from Pirate FM CWFL Management Meeting

Recommended Posts

A few notes and updates from the Pirate FM CWFL Management Committee Meeting last night.
There are presently now just 15 remaining Women's Clubs in Cornwall 11 within CWFL and 4 in the SWWFL.
So far across the 11 CWFL clubs 310 players have been registered for the 2016/17 Season although only 240 of those have actually played in any fixtures.
16 fixtures have been awarded so far this season through clubs not raising a side. 
23 matches have been postponed including two weekends that were a total wash out with all 5 matches on each weekend postponed.
The CWFL SCOR states that clubs must complete 75% of fixtures or their playing record will be expunged. With one club having failed to raise a side in 4 fixtures already and a further three teams not raising a side in 3 fixtures all clubs are reminded of the 75% fulfilling of fixture ruling.
The Pirate FM CWFL presently has annual fixture breaks of 3 Sundays off at Christmas and no matches on Mothering Sunday or Easter Sunday. 
The CCFA Women's Cup Competition takes precedence over league fixtures and with the semi-finals also being played on a Sunday this year (previously an evening match) there are further unavailable fixture Sundays.
With 23 postponed fixtures to also fit in around the unavailable dates the decision has been made that we will not be able to run the Pirate FM CWFL League or Supplementary Cup this Season.
The Pirate FM CWFL AGM is set for Sunday 2nd July 2017 at 4pm at St Agnes AFC.
All roles are up for nomination/election so anyone interested in joining the league committee for the 2017/18 Season and helping sustain and develop ladies football in Cornwall please contact present Chair Mandy Kimmins on 07974 370666 or email bolsterpaper@gmail.com or Secretary Denzil Lobb as below.
Clubs are requested to review the Pirate FM Standard Code of Rules and submit any proposed changes to league Secretary Denzil Lobb by email d.lobb48@btinternet.com. These proposals should be submitted in the first instance by 1st April and then circulated to all member clubs by 1st May with any amendments re-submitted by 15th May for discussion at the AGM.
Social Media: Clubs are asked to remind players to be careful of what their players post on Social Media which can often be public/shared and can reflect badly on themselves, their club and the league.
The remaining outstanding league fixtures will be posted after the results of this coming Sunday CCFA Women's Cup Round.
Clubs are advised that Warren Parker the CCFA Women's & Girls Development Officer has stated he will be contacting all clubs to arrange support meetings.
Charter Standard: The committee submitted this in 2016 and is grateful to Andrew Plenty from Culdrose for volunteering to complete it once he has finished working on the KYFL and Trelawney League ones. This will involve a meeting with all clubs to work on the Development Plan for the future of the CWFL.
To date Helston Ladies have applied for promotion to the SWWFL for 2017/18  Season with Bude notifying their intention to follow. 
The CWFL will fully support these applications. 
Applications need to be submitted by 31st March.
One youth side has suggested possibly entering a new team next season but that is in the early stages.
The Joint Liaison Committee will meet again in April (date TBC) to confirm promotion/relegations and the Women's Pyramid Project Team will meet in May to decide promotion to Women's Regional Leagues.
Outstanding fixture issues were discussed and decisions made, these will be forwarded to the respective clubs with the league table being updated as relevant.
The committee had intended to host a whole league meeting for this part of the season to discuss the format of the league/supplementary cup but as these are not running this season the whole league meeting will be deferred until it is called for a League Charter Standard evening.
Member clubs are reminded that the CWFL will provide financial assistance towards coaching qualifications, First Aid, Safeguarding, CRC etc to support clubs with their development and achieving/maintaining their Club Charter Standard.
Council Rep: Zoe reported on the meetings she had attended.
Well done to all clubs and players for doing your best to fulfil your fixtures and keep women's football alive in Cornwall.
Chair CWFL
