Roy D Posted April 28 Report Share Posted April 28 Obviously this summer the leagues will be coming together as one (something that should have happened years ago). With this we will undoubtedly see a few teams fold to start with, with cases every season where a team is struggling for players, the football community comes together & random people sign on to play for said team when their own side doesn't have a game, this will now not be an option. Maybe that's not a bad thing. The main issue/query i have is to do with teams moving leagues despite not finishing in the top 2/3. I understand the St Pirans set up will be 2 leagues of 16 teams & then leagues of 14 below that. Will this be done gradually? As I think 1 thing that's killed teams in recent years has been the promotions for teams that have struggled, sometimes teams need to play at their own standard & not be moved up just because of other teams folding. For example if a team battles all season not to fold in Duchy 2, finish 8th but the following season they find themselves in the equivalent of Duchy 1, all that does it gives them an even harder task to stay afloat. This year Trelawney Prem is an extremely weak league, the lower Trelawney leagues are arguably stronger, there are a few Prem teams that would be mid table if they played 2 leagues lower & there are a few lower league teams that would win the Prem. If you ask 6/7/8 teams to make the step up from Trelawney Prem (Junior football) to what is essentially combination in 1 go, some of those clubs (which are already battling to stay alive) will fold. Does anyone know how the merger will be done & whether this has been considered? Will the lower league clubs have a say? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
