I do have some sympathy with the league clubs as Argyle have once again made a mockery of the competition by either fielding very strong sides or very weak sides.

A third division  football club with over ten thousand fans per week fails to raise a side against Falmouth?? wtf.
even with the miracle worker the club is Village and small time as always.

Nothing one can say anymore about the ineptitude and village culture permeating Akkeron argo.

Village it is. Devon, and particularly Cornwall, have some proud local clubs who, unlike Argyle, form a bond in the local community. Argyle’s approach is disrespectful and distorts the league. How can it be fair to play Carey against one opposition and then forfeit a game against another?

Very poor.

Why didn't we pull out/re-arrange the central league fixture instead? If we're playing in a ressie league, why are we also playing in the Peninsula league - I thought we entered the Peninsula league because we couldn't find a ressie league to play in?

We should probably step aside from the Peninsula League. I was in favour of us entering in initially, but if we're going to forfeit some matches, while playing 4/5 first-teamers in others, then clearly we're distorting the league and shouldn't be playing in it.

Argyle shouldn't be in this league.

More effort and investment from south west professional clubs should go into a reserve team league that plays regular and not as it is now once a month

I’m sure the farm would downplay this as tiny little clubs who should be grateful to play Argyle. Well, guess what, grassroots local clubs matter and plenty of people, more virtuous than this mob, give their time and energy to deliver local football.

True, if we stagnate for too long, Parkway may catch us up..

Shocked Think about that. Then think again. Yep, doesn't sound so ridiculous now, does it?

There were a couple of people I spoke to on the Cornish scene who were very sceptic about Argyle joining. The general gist was that Argyle would treat what is a valid FA feeder league as a glorified training session and then piss off when it stopped suiting them. So it seems to be proving.

Grassroots football is dying on its arse, as councils put up rents and pitch fees, there are people out there that work there arses off to make clubs function for lthe love of it and to treat some of our local clubs in this way is disgraceful.

I love being involved at Parkway... for the love of football, no politics, no bullshit just all about the football. Silverware in the trophy cabinet too...St Lukes Bowl won this week, annihilating Bideford 4 - 1 (they're 2 leagues above us!) and the League trophy being presented tonight after the game against Bodmin. If anyone needs to reinvigorate their passion for the game, get down to Bolitho Park - Western League next year and looking for back to back promotions.

Very true Damon, Tavvys got a buzz about it these days as well and it's a great afternoon out, a couple of beers pitch side no less, wander around the ground like we did the Terraces and the football is very entertaining.

Not enough players to fulfil the fixture due to injuries, doesn't really fit given that PAFC are such a 'big' club.

The real reason we haven't competed at the tail end of the season is that we don't have a squad, haven't had one for a couple of years. We used to have a first team, a reserve team then the youth setup. We haven't had a reserve team in ages and have fulfilled other fixtures by using a combination of first team and youth players. We need a proper reserve team and a proper reserve league to play in. We've been missing out to City on the youth players ever since Brent rolled up. Tinpot.

Good luck to you. Could you do something about the name Damon ? it's an awful name. How about Phoenix Argyle ?

What's wrong with the name Damon? Don't think Phoenix Argyle Lenszner works!
