I've set a static IP via the router (and changed dhcpcd.conf accordingly) and though the network connection appears to survive a reboot it needs me to run 'sudo mii-tool -r eth0' (several times) before I can get a working network if I power the rpi up from a shutdown.

One last update for the day - I've managed to work around this problem by plugging in a usb ethernet adaptor and I've now got a stable network connection that survives shutdowns and reboots every time.

This, I believe points to either a driver/firmware issue, or in the worse case a faulty on-board network connection (correct me if you think I'm wrong).

At least using the usb ethernet I can now use the pi4 as my day-to-day computer and in the meantime I'll wait for some further firmware updates and see if they fix the onboard network issue.

Cheers for now, and once again thanks to the forum members who have been helping me today - very much appreciated.
