    St Austell vs Bodmin

    St Austell good value for the win with Harvey in the Bodmin goal making 2 excellent saves, 1 in each half to keep the score down. St A firmly in control at 2-0 (great 2nd by Slateford!), but switched off to let Bodmin back in it (despite an excellent double save by Chapman prior to the goal). Bodmin briefly threatened 2nd half but to no avail. Plenty of noise from both teams (and benches!) to keep the crowd of 332 interested with the Ref and his assistants always in the spotlight with no real controversy to talk about though. Hobbs started for Bodmin but badly needs minutes to regain any sort of sharpness, Colwell class as usual in midfield, Harvey decent in goal with the remainder very average. 2 front lads for St Austell busy as usual with Hart, DIngle, Reski, Slateford and particularly DIngle efficient in midfield with Chambers and Giles solid at the back. Overall, a good evening out watching a good, competitive game. ?
  2. Depends on whether the non-appointed referee had a clear understanding of the Laws of the Game and was confident in the Lino's ability to interpret said Laws. He may have thought that 'consciously' or indeed sub-consciously the Lino had been swayed by his own interpretation of the Offside Rule to benefit his own side - it works both ways I guess?? Was the Holmans Lino qualified to be there?? Do the Trelawney League sides have to provide qualified Lino's or is it a bit of a free-for-all?? Interesting debate though isn't it?
  3. Is it the enjoyment or the 'easy route'? Surely it's better to push yourself to play at the highest level possible and then once you approach the 'twilight' of your career then play with your mates and have a laugh? If they're really your mates they'll always be so and they shouldn't criticise you for extending yourself at a better standard. As an ex-player reflecting on my football journey, I know I'm glad I took the path I did. Just a thought.
  4. Penryn v St Day looks tasty as well as Helston v Hayle, 4 teams that will challenge no doubt come May. Hearing also that Tyler Oliver has decided to play full time for St Day rather than Helston first team? Interesting considering St Day don’t splash the ££??
  5. Culdrose 1 - 4 Helston 4. A game of little quality (spoilt a little by the inevitable Culdrose wind!!) in which goalkeeping mistakes ultimately cost the Airmen dear. Helston raced into a 2 goal lead early on with a neat finish from Williams and a good follow up from Tanner for the second. First nightmare from the goalie gifting the third goal to Wright, HT 0-3. Culdrose with the wind at their backs pulled one back with a decent header from a corner but once again, a gift from their goalie was dispatched by Wright for his second, 1-4. Overall, Helston attempted to play football and by pressurising a weak defence with good pressing movement forced the mistakes that sealed the contest. Culdrose in for another long season I'm afraid; too many mistakes at the back and little in the way of a threat going forward despite playing a couple of SWPL players to bolster their squad.
