As many will know, Grampound have had a tough season and as chairman of the club I am very grateful to those club stalwarts who have worked so hard every week to get a team on the pitch. I am also grateful to those players who have stuck by us and kept us afloat, ignoring those with little backbone who gave up too early. We won today, a rare occurrence this season, but we are rebuilding and will be back as a force in the future. We have excellent facilities and currently just about the best pitch in the league.
Today's game against Callington saw us 2 up at half time. Callington pulled one back seconds into the second half but Grampound dug in and restored the two goal lead soon after. The last half hour saw both teams create chances without further scoring and Grampound ran out 3-1 winners, a cause for some celebration after the game.
Thanks to Callington, who fought as expected to the end in spite of having little to play for and might have even won it themselves. As we all know, no team ever wins a Duchy League game without a battle, something some of our youngsters are starting to learn. We are looking forward to next season!
