It's questionable whether any club should prioritise the preferences of visiting supporters over their home backers who come every fortnight. The phrase 'biting the hand that feeds you' springs to mind.

To me, Cornwall's such a good trip - but also a long one - that it's worth investing a day, or half a day's holiday, to maximise the time/value you get, and I would do that - if necessary - for a game regardless of what day it took place (eg travel down Friday PM for a Saturday game, or return Monday AM from a Sunday game). Maybe Truro will be that bit closer to England that supporters could make it back after a Sunday game, at least as far as London?

Had some great trips with Nottingham to Camborne on Green Army Trips left early Saturday and picked up a local match Saturday afternoon stayed overnight had a slow start !!!! watched some great rugby and left after the game got back just after midnight. Also went with a couple of friends by car which reduced the travel time by a couple of hours . Must be similar from London depending on which side of town you are.

Fully agree with all of this but if Pirates business plan in S4C require a significant away support to create revenue I would respectfully suggest they should at least consider and research the disincentive to a significant number of potential customers of the Sunday fixture practice. Trains and planes are usually far more limited on Sundays and using this year as an example where the Jersey fixture is on Easter Sunday without a Jersey Club Charter flight I couldn't make the match. Are there any National League matches in Cornwall on Easter Saturday? Home supporter preference should be the major factor but the banter with away supporters is surely also important and I wonder if the odd occasional change in fixture practice would be such a huge disincentive to home fans. For example would Blues fans be seriously put out by kicking off an hour earlier on the odd occasion?  
Dont kick it. Pick it up and GO FORWARD.
