Stadium issue has been covered by TIMES DAILY MAIL and GUARDIAN. Will they report positive news for Cornwall tomorrow?

Trouble is, so many people in Kernow don't want to catch up!

We love Feurteventura, and have noticed that in most big villages over there, a high walled stadium with floodlights exists, admittedly mainly for football, but one might ask...."how do they do it"??.......European funding maybe!!! Something isn't fair!!!

New article in the Guardian online rugby section about Stadium4Cornwall by sports writer Paul Rees.Also another article in Daily Mail online sport. Great to see Cornwall getting good publicity on the National scene for a change.

True, and anything that raises the profile of the club must be good. Maybe Spotlight will take notice and give us a bit more coverage. I've had a Facebook exchange with former Pirate Andy Birkett, but he's just trotting out the party line and won't admit we're getting a poor showing - they're just interested in football and Chiefs and "don't want to become a results service."

It'll be interesting to see if all this publicity has an effect on the gate for the Ealing game.

Everything comes to those that wait. It took 10 years of patience to get that positive result yesterday. 'Proper Coverage' will happen. Remember Exeter Chiefs didn't get much cover either until they started making things happen. Times they are a'changin'(Sm109)

Northampton Saint in peace...

I just read the article on the Guardian site and I am a little bit baffled. The artists impression of the stadium shows a complete 4 sided venue, and reports the capacity as 6k.

I was expecting to see perhaps 2 or 3 stands making up the 6k and allowing football crowd separation but leaving the space for expansion to 10k or more - maybe with covered terracing down the "long" side of the pitch like Kingsholm.

Are Pirates no longer looking to move up or is it thought this can be achieved with a 6k ground?
