  1. Saturday 16th October 2021 Newquay 1 (Harding 6) Foxhole 3 (Jack Boardman 11, Harry Boardman 11, Coates 74) Foxhole’s miserable run ended with a much improved display at Mount Wise, full of effort and aggression against determined and smart opponents who were still well in the game even after Coates’ header had made it 3-1 with sixteen minutes left. Harding had put the home team ahead early on, running clear to slide the ball under Heaton, but the equaliser soon arrived when Wilkins’ searching ball to Tom Boardman broke kindly for his brother Jack to tap home. Harry Boardman put the visitors in front with a left-footed chip from twenty-five yards which caught out stand-in ‘keeper Brooks, the game continuing to ebb and flow for the rest of the half, albeit without a host of chances being created at either end. Nevertheless, the match was proving a good advert for the ECPL, as both sides showed off their skill and commitment as the tackles flew in, while giving little for referee Pattison to get unduly worried about. The Foxes recently had shown a worrying drop in performance post their half time slice of orange and there were some signs of this again as Newquay began to pin them back, but that Heaton was relatively untroubled was due to the sort of togetherness not witnessed since Gunnislake away five matches ago, with Andrews and Abdulkarim especially doughty. Indisputably, the fact that at last the bench was well-populated was a key element in securing the victory, the numerous fresh legs, including those of debutants Mitchell and Hoskin, keeping the Peppermints at bay while also offering the real threat of a fourth. Well played the super Foxes. Well done and good luck to Newquay. Many thanks to George Pattison and the linos.

  3. Saturday 9th October Foxhole 13 (Coad 11, 52, Dan Allen 29, 44, 69, Hayhurst 43, James 47, Hawkin 63 pen, 66, Bould 77, Jacob Mitchell 81, Nathan Allen 85, Stockley 88) Lostwithiel 1 (Webster 90) Foxhole maintained their hundred per cent record with a routine victory over a plucky Lostwithiel who deserved their consolation goal from Webster who, with the last kick of the match, ran through to lob May. Otherwise, it was one-way traffic even before the opening goal when Hayhurst's low centre was turned in by Coad, who then set up Dan Allen to tap home at the far post before cleverly setting up Hayhurst for the third. Both Hayhurst and Stockley were denied by the woodwork, but, just prior to the break, a suspiciously offside looking Nathan Allen passed to his brother for number four. Within seven minutes of the restart, two more had flown past the excellent visiting keeper, first when James curled in a beauty from twenty-five yards before Warner's corner was forced in from very close range by Coad. Lostwithiel gamely attempted to keep the score down, but there was no respite especially given the strength of the Foxes' bench, Hawkin firing in a brace in quick succession, the first from the spot after Hayhurst had been tripped, and then despatching nicely Bould's assist. Moments later, Bould's corner was flicked on by Whetter for Dan Allen to complete an unlikely perfect hat-trick, swiftly followed by Bould lashing one into the roof of the net. Despite reaching double figures the onslaught continued, Jacob Mitchell firing in off a post and Nathan Allen notching a rare header before Stockley's thunderbolt completed the home tally. Foxhole (4-3-3): Stewart May; Dan Allen, Jay Warner, Lee Whetter, Lee Rickard; Ryan Hayhurst, Nathan Allen, Jacob Mitchell; Richard James, Craig Coad, Caleb Hawkin. Subs: Lewis Stockley, Sam Mitchell, Dean Robinson, Benno Bould. Lostwithiel line-up to follow. Well played the super Foxes. Well played and good luck to Lostwithiel. Many thanks to referee Duncan Stevenson.

  6. Saturday 2nd October 2021 St Minver 5 (Stone 44, Caddy 48, Green 58, Combellack 82, Sleep 89) Foxhole 3 (Jack Boardman 8, Kerrigan 28, Cheshire 71) Despite a flying start, Foxhole were ultimately unable to end their run of disappointing results as the North Coast side, for whom Kempthorne and Caddy looked a class apart, deservedly claimed the points with a strong second half showing up the Trewint Lane slope. It had all started so promisingly: a fine ball from Harry Boardman, who was to provide assists for all three Foxes goals, was seized on by Cheshire, whose effort was palmed away by Hurst into the path of a grateful Jack Boardman. The second was not unexpected, Kerrigan side-footing home an outswinging corner, as the visitors were moving the ball nicely and were fairly comfortably dealing with St Minver’s attacking threat. However, Stone’s free header from Kempthorne’s corner on the stroke of half time, was ominous. Rather like the airborne insects that had besieged the pitch earlier, the home team swarmed forward on the restart and soon equalised when the outstanding striker Caddy converted following a scramble. Quickly gaining control of the midfield, St Minver sensed their chance to swoop, the clever interplay they were able to exhibit resulting in a number of rash challenges leading to free-kicks in dangerous areas. From one of these, Green made it 3-2, only for Cheshire to level with a great finish after beating the offside trap, although the same player was soon denied his second of the afternoon by the somewhat tardy flag of the lino. Jake Couch was unlucky to see a drive from miles out strike the bar with Hurst stranded, but the Blues were always the more likely winners, particularly when Andrews joined Seth Couch on the sidelines as walking wounded. Sure enough, the unmarked Combellack headed in a corner from close range, and Sleep made it five at the death with a strike from twenty yards. Well played the super Foxes. Well done and good luck to St Minver. Many thanks to Gary Cornish and the linos.

  7. Saturday 25th September 2021 Helston 7 (4, 7, Andrews og 41, 55, 57, 68, 79) Foxhole 2 (Cheshire 71, Jake Couch 80) Foxhole were well beaten by an excellent home team, but can again look at what ifs, having squandered two one-on-ones even before Helston's disputed opener on four minutes. The Foxes played some decent football throughout the first half, but their lack of a killer instinct was in stark contrast with the ruthless finishing of the Blues. Unfortunately Andrews' spectacular headed own goal just before the break rather dashed any realistic hope of a recovery, Helston remorselessly ramming home their advantage after the restart. Despite their wafer thin match day squad, the visitors battled on gamely and deserved their two fine consolation goals: the first a brilliant effort from Cheshire, who then centred for Couch to nod in from close range. Well played the super Foxes. Good luck and well played to Helston. Many thanks to referee Neil Pitt and the linos. Foxhole (4-3-3): Jack Heaton; Dan Olver, Seth Couch, Ryan Wilkins, Josh Andrews; Harry Boardman, Levi Kerrigan, Jake Couch; Tyler Cheshire, Jack Boardman, Jowan Dingle. Sub: Kian Townsend.

  9. Wednesday 15th September 2021 St Blazey 1 (Ryan Morcom 33) Foxhole 0 A bad night out for the Foxes who were outplayed and outfought by an excellent home team, who zipped the ball around impressively. It could be argued that the visitors' failure to convert a couple of one-on-ones early on was pivotal to the final outcome, but in truth St Blazey were by far the better side in the first half, Heaton brilliantly twice denying goal-bound efforts and then happy to watch McAvoy's cross cum shot rebound to safety off the far post. However, Morcom's scrappy goal from a corner had definitely been coming. Foxhole did marginally up their game after the break, but it was only during a late Alamo-style surge that they began to look capable of cracking a steadfast defence. Even then, Turner was seldom extended, his side looking every bit as likely to grab a decisive second with their greater desire both to win the midfield skirmishes and ability to find their man with an accurate pass. To their credit, Foxhole continued to knock on the door, at last crossing the ball with purpose, but an equaliser would have been tough on the Green and Blacks. Foxhole (4-3-3): Jack Heaton; Ryan Wilkins, Seth Couch, Angel Coates, Josh Andrews; Jack Boardman, Harry Boardman, Jake Couch; Tyler Cheshire, Benno Bould, Tom Boardman. Subs: Rildwan Areoye, Levi Kerrigan, Oliver Deadman, Jowan Dingle. St Blazey: Kieran Braybrook, Gary Camps, Jamie Henderson, Scott Laughton, Frank McAvoy, Kevin Morcom, Ryan Morcom, Bailey Trethewey, Liam Turner, Chris Warburton, Ross Willcock. Subs: Nathan Chapman, Ollie Swiggs. Well played the super Foxes. Well done and good luck to St Blazey. Many thanks to Tom Roper and the linos.
  10. Saturday 11th September 2021 Gunnislake 0 Foxhole 1 (Bould 85) A late header from Bould settled this tight affair in the Tamar Valley sun, the Foxes striker nodding into the net after Cheshire's effort had looped up off a defender. It was just about deserved by the visitors, who had been under the cosh in the first half, surrendering most of the possession to an impressive Gunnislake outfit, but who had grown into the game after the break to carve out the better clear-cut chances. The home side played some great stuff, but only outside-right Patterson managed to consistently pierce a well-drilled rearguard in which Andrews in particular excelled. Such was the commitment of those in front of him, including debutant central midfielders Abdulkarim and Areoye, Heaton's afternoon was ultimately pretty routine, allowing Foxhole to grind out a crucial victory. Well played the super Foxes. Well done and good luck to Gunnislake. Many thanks to referee Pete Sowden. Foxhole (4-4-2): Jack Heaton; Ryan Wilkins, Seth Couch, Angel Coates, Josh Andrews; Jack Boardman, Tom Boardman, Levi Kerrigan, Harry Boardman; Tyler Cheshire, Benno Bould.

Gunnislake: Chris Parsons, James Cawte, Ricky Coton, Billy Cotton, Jamie Montgomery, Jamie Rowlands, Josh Searle, Bradley Scoble, Aaron Varcoe, Adam Patterson, Joe Wakenshaw.

  12. Saturday 4th September 2021 St Newlyn East 5 (Scott 29, Parsonage 34, Powell 77, 92, Baulch 119) Foxhole 6 (Cheshire 5, 94, 96, 117, Deadman 14 pen, 38) after extra time Foxhole narrowly booked a quarter final spot after this thrill a minute match at windy Cargoll Road. Quickly taking advantage of the elements, the visitors soon went two up, Deadman releasing Cheshire to blast home from an acute angle before the same player was upended by Counter for Deadman to despatch the penalty. Rather taking their foot off the gas proved fatal as Newlyn settled to knock the ball around with some relish, much as they'd done in their reverse at Goverseth, and deserved to level through a thunderbolt from twenty-five yards from Scott and a side foot finish by Parsonage. However, Cheshire's pace was a perennial threat and he soon latched on to Harry Boardman's assist to lob on to the bar for Deadman to nod in the rebound to restore the lead. With the breeze now at their backs, Newlyn spent large periods of the second half on the front foot, although Heaton was not required to display his shot-stopping ability as his defence stood firm. Foxhole looked to have weathered the storm until Powell cut in from the right to equalise. With the sun burning strongly, and both teams running out of options from the bench, the extra thirty minutes would prove challenging to tired legs and minds, which only served to escalate the excitement. First, Powell burst through to beat Heaton from miles out only for Cheshire to bring parity by hooking beyond Counter. Within moments, the striker had completed his hat-trick, heading home from close-range a centre from Tom Boardman, by now operating at outside-left following the latest in a series of reshuffles. The game was far from won as Newlyn continued to probe with purpose, Ross London twice heading wide from close-range, only for the imposing Whetter, whose introduction had added composure and stability to an over-worked rearguard, to head clear to Cheshire with three minutes left, who promptly ran seventy yards with the ball to slot in. Even then it wasn't all over, as hesitancy allowed Baulch to make it a 6-5 special, but the super Foxes held on. Foxhole (4-3-3): Jack Heaton; Ryan Wilkins, Tom Boardman, Seth Couch, Angel Coates; Jake Couch,Jack Boardman, Levi Kerrigan; Tyler Cheshire, Jack Boardman, Oliver Deadman. Subs: Nathan Papaioannou, Lee Whetter. St Newlyn East: Zac Counter, Jack Thompson, Josh Dingle, Logan Capeling, Sam Lawrence, Ross London, Owen London, Jack Scott, Brodie Mitchell, Dan Parsonage, Elliot Powell. Subs: Simon Baulch, Harry Mugford. Well played the super Foxes. Good luck and well done to Newlyn. Many thanks to referee Chris Nicholls and the linos.
  13. Staggering kick off times and fixturing matches on Sundays, Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays would free up officials and increase attendances by attracting neutral spectators. I can also see some merit in summer football, avoiding Saturdays altogether so cricket wouldn't be affected.
  14. Tuesday 31st August 2021 Roche 1 (Robinson 32) Foxhole 3 (Cheshire 25, 73, Jack Boardman 32) Foxhole were made to work hard for their victory by a determined Roche, but another impressive defensive display meant Heaton was rarely extended throughout. After each had fired over early on, Bould and Cheshire combined cleverly for the opening goal, but the lead only lasted seven minutes, Rowe flicking on a free kick for Robinson to head in at the far post. This was deserved by the home team, who had just struck the bar from a corner and who had generally appeared more eager in the tackle, but they could do nothing to prevent Jack Boardman finding the net from twenty-five yards through a crowded box. Roche continued to both repel the visiting attacks after the break and offer a threat themselves, particularly through Trudgeon down the right, but the introduction of the composed Deadman allowed the Foxes to exert greater control in midfield. His prompting helped create a number of unconverted openings before, with seventeen minutes left, Bould unselfishly squared for Cheshire to fire past Hunkin to clinch the points. Well played the super Foxes. Well done and good luck to Roche. Many thanks to Alan Howells and Ross Burnett. Foxhole (4-3-3): Jack Heaton; Ryan Wilkins, Tom Boardman, Seth Couch, Angel Coates; Jake Couch, Jack Boardman, Harry Boardman; Tyler Cheshire, Benno Bould, Jowan Dingle. Subs: Sam Bray, Oliver Deadman, Levi Kerrigan. Roche (4-4-2): James Hunkin; Dan Smith, Sam Leaney, Scott Hill, Neil Osborne; Tyler Trudgeon, Ross Welch, Paul Osborne, Shaun Osborne; Jacob Rowe, Jamie Robinson. Subs: Tom Molyneaux, Liam Phillips, Jim Gosley.
