Truro City Reserves could be in after all!

Agree with the points here. There has been criticism directed at Truro Cityin the past about a lack of grounding and connections to the Cornish game. Specifically no youth and reserves sides offering a development pathway for local talent. The success of the youth team over the last couple of seasons, and now a reserve side, is addressing this. This, to me, is just as important to the long term stabilty and success of the football club as buliding the new ground. I look at Helston and Mousehole in particular, and see that they have been able to push on to step 5 from a solid base of becoming community clubs through their established numerous youth, women and adult sides. Truro City, because of there being nothing beyond a Devon based group of players and management, felt a bit like it was all bit on sand.

 From what I have read, the issue that people have is them being parachuted into the St Piran and not having to start off at the bottom of the Trelawney. I see this, and understand it, but cannot see how this route would be of any benefit or interest to Truro City.

 

Any team applying could state that it is of no interest or benefit to them. There have been many teams who were obviously too good for the lower divisions of  leagues but still did it and opponents saw it as added incentive to beat them.

Why have Truro reserves gone straight into the St Pirans league and not started at the bottom tier as have Godolphin 2nds

This is not fair on other teams who would like to go into the St Pirans League

Haven’t Godolphin reserves applied for the Combo?

Nonsense. All of the other teams could also have applied if they so wished.

Watched Truro Reserves play yesterday - A very talented side, well coached and played some neat passing football. Will undoubtedly hold their own in the St Piran league and whilst I’m not a big fan of the jumping leagues scenario they would have looked very out of place in the lower divisions for the ability they have in the squad.

I don’t think this was ever in question feel it’s more about clubs/teams jumping joining leagues and making a farce of the whole promotion/ relegation structure that was meant to be in place .

Regardless of how people feel about them going in to St Pirans league, we all have differing opinions. They impressed yesterday. They played actual football, and given a couple years together they would compete in SWPL. Got to remember they're 16/17/18 years old and will likely be a top 5 team in St Pirans.

But they lost 5-0 to Godolphin 

 

 

Be mindful of the fact Godolphin are not the side that we’re losing heavily last season anymore. They were one of the best footballing sides we’ve come up against since taking over at the end of last season.

Just for interest, how did you get to watch a Behind Closed Doors game?
