Last Tuesday the CCFA held a Microsoft Team Meeting with all the Leagues, and all the concerns the Leagues had received from their memberswere forwarded on to the CCFA.      The CCFA would like to give football to those Clubs who want to play in some sort of format and set of Rules designed especially for the competition, if it was to go ahead.     The CCFA have asked the ECPL if they could find out from their member Clubs, who would be interested,please take Note that this is not mandatory and is for those Clubs that want to play football, only Clubs that can fulfill their fixtures should apply.
The CCFA are waiting on the DCSM update, which would have to be taken into consideration.
Please reply to the email sent to all club secretaries by Saturday 20th March 2021, Midnight.

Many clubs are keen to play some sort of football while others have given the idea the cold shoulder.    Would it not be more sensible to end the season completely/  For a start spectators I understand cant attend until May, so where is the income coming from especially if club houses cannot be used.   Officials have to be paid, have the referees been asked for their opinion.  What's to stop players of SWPL standard saying Give us a game.    Why not be sensible and say the season is at an end, lets prepare for the new season ahead.  This will give time for everyone to settle down and concentrate on starting a new season hopefully in August.

Leagues/clubs in Cornwall fall into three categories 1) Those where the players pay subs to play. 2) Those that allow players to play for nothing. 3) Teams who pay players (far too much) to play.

We’ve had a year of pandemic, no income for Clubs, but then again; no expenditure for players (on nightclubs, pubs and general entertainment). It seems obvious that sub payers need to pay a little more, those who pay/receive nothing, will have to open their wallets and the “semi-professionals” will have to play for nothing or even have to dip their hands into their pockets.

Players would complain (it’s part of their job descriptions) but if they want to play football, it’s pay-per-kick. We all have to look into the future and see that for the game to be sustainable we have to cut costs. 

If the players are that desperate for a game of football, or a Cup competition, they’ll need to pay for the privilege!

What a shame that one group is now down to 3 because of Padstow changing their mind!
