  1. Gwinear 1, Threemilestone 2. Missed the first twenty minutes or so, but 0-0 when I arrived and judging by the quality of what I saw I didn't miss much! The small pitch never allows a team to play much football. Instead lots of over hit passes pinball in the middle of the park and ball out of play more than in. Add to that the occasional heavy shower, strong wind and heavy pitch and it was never going to be a classic. Was 0-0 at half time. Tms had to replace their keeper at half time due to a back injury when slipping taking a goal kick, Martyn Jay taking the gloves for the 2nd half. 2nd half much the same as the first apart from Gwinear scoring very early on after Tom wilcock slipped and the little lad out on the right put the ball across Jay and into the bottom corner. Tms equalised about 10 minutes later, Joel Snape making the most of some hesitant defending to score the equaliser from 18 yards. Same pattern continued throught the 2nd half, some chances at either end but poor finishing meant extra time looked likely until in the 89th minute when Sam Vage, usually a centre back who had come off bench to play left side of midfield drove in field 10 yards and then pinged a shot right into the bottom right hand corner from 25 yards to win the game. On a better pitch this could of been a good game but at least it was one of the few that did manage to get played today. Att 10.
  2. Watching the rugby world cup, and between the 3 on the field officials and the TMO official they always seem to get the decisions spot on. And also you get to hear what they are checking for and the view of those officials. Why has VAR been so bad when they had this template already in place. In it's current form I see it as a total waste of time.
  3. Threemilestone 5, Goonhavern 1. H.t 4-0. Only saw the 2nd half but Threemilestone were comfortable winners and should of added several more goals than the 1 they did score in the 2nd half by Joel Snape. Looked like a volunteer ref was in charge and did a good job. Att 18.
  4. Went along to this one, Helston missed two sitters first half which cost them dearly, young lad on the right for helston caused problems first half but didnt see him 2nd half. Falmouth took control after the break and once they got in front never looked back. Great to see so many fans there from both sides. Also good to see Falmouth players and staff show their appreciation to the fans at the end. Well done Falmouth, and the f-troop.
  5. Percy Stephens Cup. Threemilestone 8, Newlyn non Ath. 0. The visitors playing with 10 men got off to the worst possible start, with a defensive mistake in the 1st minute giving Joel Snape a chance to run in on goal and shoot past the keeper. Threemilestone had plenty of chances to add to the score but a mixture of determined defending from the Newlyn 10 ten men, poor finishing from Tms and good goalkeeping kept the score at 1-0 untill the 40th minute when good work down the left created room for a good cross which was tapped in at the back post by Tom Goodman. Second half Threemilestone were on top right from the kick off and about 10 minutes in Martyn Jay drove in the 3rd from the 18 yard line. A few minutes later the Newlyn no6 was sinned binned for giving the ref a bit of verbal and this was the nail in Newlyns coffin. The 9 men of Newlyn were being overrun and 3 goals in a five minute spell put the game beyond doubt, the first was the goal of the game as Snape took down a ball into the box on his chest and as the ball came down turned and smashed it past the keeper on the volley. Goal five was scored by Joe Carlyon who fired in from the left of the penalty area, and the sixth was scored by Callum Sidwell. Martyn Jay scored number 7 from inside the 6 yard box although the defender may have booted it over the line? The final goal was scored by Snape from the penalty spot after a Threemilestone free kick on the edge of the box was charged down but with hands raised. Joint Manager Matt Kemp replaced Snape up front for the final 10 minutes for a rare appearance but was not able to add to the score to mark his birthday. Newlyn's ten players worked their socks off throughout and were a credit to their club and their keeper was man of the match for them. Att 11.
  6. Looks like the premier division is going to be a good competition this season. Its early i know but it seems like at least 6 teams in with a chance of winning it or at least giving the leaders a hard game. 👍
