  1. An enjoyable but sometimes frustrating day at the cornish Wembley. Both sides had players missing including towns front men of Jack Bowyer and Alex Wharton. Willand were on top in the opening stages with their slick passing and closing down of any town player to win the ball back .Although any goal threat was being dealt with by the Town defence of Kirk Davies , James Ward ,Toby Clarke ,and Ollie moody . Town took the lead against the run of play on 34 mins with Luke Brabyn finally beating the offside trap racing to the edge of the box and driving the ball past the keeper at his near post . F troop celebrations were short lived however as 4 mins later willand equalised from the impressive Jack Rice ,shooting through a crowd of players and past the unsighted Ryan Barnes . H/T 1-1 . The 2nd half was only 2 mins old when Willand took the lead again through Jack Rice . Town then made some tactical changes with Ryan Chinn and Jack Webber coming on in midfield and Tom Annear coming on as a left wing back . Town were getting more possession and making more runs down the wings culminating in an excellent Tom Annear cross on 64mins eluding the keeper for Dave Broglino to head just inside the far post at the packet end sending the F troop into a frenzy . The atmosphere was now like last seasons FA vase game against Longlevens all over again .Willand kept attacking looking for a winner but towns defence held firm .On 87 mins a run and shot by ( I think ) new signing Harry Clarke was dropped by the Willand keeper only to fall to another New Signing Andreas Calleja - Stayne to tap into an empty net and win the game and sparking F Troop into Full voice . For all their possession and talent Willand will feel hard done by .But as we see in the Premier league ,it's not necessarily the team with the most possession that wins the game ,you have to put the ball in the net .
  2. Falmouth Town v Willand Rovers 24/07/2021 Bickland Park 3pm
  3. As a footnote a ground hopper and blogger Russell Cox said despite the result the home team were the winners .An absolutely stunning ground and brilliant fans . The ground is down to the small band of volunteers who work tirelessly and with pride ,take a bow gentlemen ,you know who you are !👍
  4. Sorry cornish leg end or is it legend ,post match drinks and a busy DIY day today have delayed any post match report. Well what can I say ,other than town were outclassed in the 1rst 40 mins by there 4 leagues higher local rivals .Town were without there 2 regular centre halves ,James ward (honeymoon) and Toby Clarke (playing for his old club saltash against man utd legends) . Truro were sharper and more accurate with their passing ,throw in the odd dummy backheel and feigning of passes and it was easy to see how truro went in at half time 5 -0 up ,thanks to Rooney 13 mins , 24 mins Ryan brett ,29 mins Rio Garside ,30 mins a Ryan Brett rocket ,and 36 mins Tyler Harvey . Town manager Andy Westgarth obviously had stern words at half time as Town came out much more compact and with the introduction of new signing Alex Wharton up front with his pace being fed by Luke Brabyn and Tim Nixon was able to make runs in behind the truro defence but the final pass and shot was being blocked time and again. Even with the introduction of 6 subs at the same time Truro were unable to breach the Town defence anymore thanks to my Town M.O.M Tom Annear and Goalkeeper Ryan Barnes who saved a penalty . So Town were poor 1rst half but the second half was a draw 0-0 😁 Overall it was a good afternoon despite the result ,great to be in the packet end again with the F troop .Not sure of the attendance but not many visible Truro fans ,probably a dozen down the away end .The rest must of been incognito .
  5. Falmouth Town v Truro City Sat 17th July 2021 Bickland Park 3.00pm K.O.

  8. Think you need a visit to your opticians Alan as you've obviously not seen the building work that is going on ,thus no longer any access to the old entrance and paybox , that was no longer fit for purpose .Or are you up to your old tricks again and being pedantic ? 🤔 PS Hope you've donated generously to the Forum crowdfunder .👍
  9. Why the laughing face le boss ? I think I can safely say almost everyone at Falmouth Town especially those who have worked tirelessly over the last few years improving the ground and clubhouse facilities , have promotion in mind . IN MY OPINION ,I would want us to be promoted the proper way at the top of the league at the end of the season ,not on a points per game basis . Westy has a good side already but with the quality new additions and the F troop mobilised behind them ,who knows what might happen . UTT
