Cally with a 130 mile round trip, Bude with a 114 miler.....prob not best to make the first round over the August bank holiday weekend!! 🤣🤣 Best of luck to the new league .... think the whole of the County will be watching intently as to how it shapes up over the next 2 seasons....👍👍

Oh dear, we must really get over this distance thing! 

I'm all for it Dave..tho just realised my post seemed initially not ...😁  we are a diverse and hard to cross County,  but long cup trips ( and league ones) are part and parcel of the fun of sport here. I mean...Duchy Prem already looking far more East Cornwall than last seasons mainly Mid Cornwall setup..... really hope the Pirans takes off and becomes a great League...

I can't see Mullion making it to Saltash. I really hope I'm wrong.

If anyone doesn’t make it, they should be dealt with hard and thrown out the league. All clubs knew what was in store when they applied.

100% agree. Most clubs have two teams and should fulfil all games

Bude are at home so unless they are picking St Day up and dropping them back 🙈

They baulked on going to Launceston last season and I have a feeling it will happen again but like I said, I hope I'm wrong.

Were they the only team not to fulfil a fixture last season??? Do you know the circumstances as to why they didnt travel to Launceston last season?

Exactly - do they really want to play football or not ? Traveling to away games is part of it. If an individual or a team doesn't want to travel, they should not get involved in league football.

So easy to say, and i do agree with the sentiment, but i'm guessing neither of you has had to do a pub crawl on a Friday night to press gang anyone at all (no football skill required) to turn out on a Saturday when for a host of reasons (and i accept that many reasons are pathetic these days) not enough players are available. The harsh reality is that even the threat of being thrown out of a league wont matter to the players who aren't fully committed and so it would be the other players who suffer.

I can understand the commitment and yes clubs apply, etc. But the distance thing does matter to some Dave. Having the same drivers from a team every week, paying subs, paying for fuel, driving 120miles+ in a day, does take its toll.

I understand exactly what you are saying Paul and recognise that that is a problem. It gets back again to a lack of true desire to play the game with some players. Do these guys really want to play league football.

I like the idea if the Curnow Scone Cup. Linda Curnow does make beautiful scones. I have eaten lots of them. But remember, this is a Cornish league. None of that Devonian nonsense here. Jam before cream, always. Any club spreading the scones the other way round should be heavily fined. A new league is an opportunity to set the highest of cultural standards. Our treatment of the Curnow Scone Cup defines our identity. Jam before cream !
