Apparently loadsa money available for players at some Step 6 clubs in Cornwall.

All for £2k for Premier Division winners.

I hope those who qualify for promotion take it, as the days of the blockers are numbered.

Should be an exciting season coming up, enjoy it.

Yours in Sport.

Why is anyone shocked. 

This hasn’t just come about this season. Every year there are one or two clubs willing to put their hands in their pockets and spend money on players. 

Just this season seems to be one or two more clubs willing to do it. 

If it’s for progression I have nothing against it, if it’s for egos and who’s got the biggest wallet and bragging rights. Leave them to it, because as ever the money runs out eventually and it’s about who is willing to pick up the pieces after the cash has gone. 

I only use St Blazey, Penzance, as examples from the past that have suffered once budgets have gone and “loyal players” move on for and extra £5 somewhere else.

Penzance seem to have a pretty big budget again this season.

Good luck to them. Didn’t work out last they had a big budget. Got rid of all the local lads and brought in “save my local club money grabbers” and haven’t recovered. 

Big budget doesn’t = success. Means lots of money grabbers after your money

It can only be about their egos - there is nothing to be won at the end of the day. Even those clubs that take promotion, there is nothing financially to win (unless they turn professional and join the football league - so it's just about their egos. Hopefully winning matches too.

Paying silly money to 16/17 year olds who haven't ever played senior football is crazy.

Hearing the penzance budget is huge and they are targeting many of the Helston under 18 team, the Oliver brothers and several current combination & peninsula players with promises of big money and holidays

So, from a club that was on the brink and engaged in merger talks with a local rival, to one with a budget that is "huge" and promising players "big money and holidays."

Seems somewhat unlikely.

Madness. Surely any monies should be spent on the foundations as priority

I have a tent and camping stove in my back garden for the holidays! Bring their own sleeping gear.

I have also heard there is big money at Penzance, Didn't people say that there was a plan B if the merger didn't happen?

You don’t believe there are players in that league earning 100 quid a game ? Ha bloody hell players were picking that up about 10 years ago . Loads picking a tidy sum up. Not all Chinese whispers at all
