  1. Halston deserved the win yesterday solid in defense and the chances they had up front they scored with ease. Millbrook were below par, they had a foul on Sheperd which was a penalty shout by Millbrook but the ref was not convinced. Strange positions for Millbrook Tom Payne on the wing, in fact better play makes with pace needed in the midfield Sam Morcom would be perfect in this position still helping to defend but had the drive and passing moves needed at this level.Again Josh Toulson would be brillant in midfield but was on the bench yesterday. Macca Brown should of made changes at half time. The forwards had very little chances but the passing was missing from midfield. Sheperd frustrated and Holter not really involved. Tetley deserved man of the match he worked hard in defence and the score could of been greater for Helston without him. Lessons to be learned at Millbrook and player positions??
  2. Millbrook has loyal players it is a shame Curtis Damerell went back to Torpoint another fast striker who should be playing at a higher level and played well alongside Sheperd and Foster.
  3. Millbrook seem to have a limited squad but players that are able to play in multiple positions. Good job as Jack Wood stepped into the goal after Millbrooks keeper Sam waa injured after saving a penalty. Great to see Jake Foster back on the scoring sheet and also the return of Sam Morcom. However Rikki Sheperd is becoming a star player and invaluable striker for Millbrook. Josh Grant for Tavistock is always a threat and first half Tavi could of stamped thier authority but Millbrook seem to go into another gear in the second half. They had plenty of chances to take the points today but think they will be happy with a well earned point at this early stage of a long season.
  4. Alot of great young players who have grown into the Millbrook side. A core group of players who enjoy football and a challenge. On the right foot they will suprise many.
  5. Amazing comeback for Millbrook last night. First half Saltash scored with ease and Millbrook looked out of the cup being 3-0 down. Second half a few vital changes of positions and clever substitutions by Macca was a game changer. After the goal by Sheperd Millbrook grew in belief and thier passing game was back. The flood gates opened and Millbrook started the fight back. Further goals came Sheperd, Youlden, a fantastic header by Toulson who went from defence to partner Sheperd up front in the second half and got them in front. The whole team played as a team and it was so exciting to watch. Tom Payne scored and you thought 5-3 Millbrook had it in the bag but Saltash dug in and got a goal back but Ed Goodman had other ideas and scored for Millbrook to seal the win. This was a brillant advert for football and the Fa Cup. Wonderful atmosphere with supporters enjoying a flurry of goals. Grassroots football at it's best. Well done Millbrook your spirit and passion shone through. A well deserved win
  6. What matches on Boxing Day - Sat 26th will be ticket only entry please?
  7. Fantastic result for Millbrook today against step 5 club Bashley FC. Bashley were a well drilled team and the game flowed at a face pace which suited Millbrook. It was a fairly even game and you would not know that Millbrook were a step 6 team. Millbrook goalie Chris Wearing made 2 crucial saves when Bashley were awarded 2 penalties, the first was a very soft decision and the penalty was very poor. Jake Foster scored a sublime goal from distance which gave Millbrook the fire to stake a claim on this match. Bashley pressed hard and their No7 was particularly dangerous. They had their chances and failed again on the penalty spot and Millbrook was awarded a penalty and our own Captain Tom (Payne) stepped up and fired home our second goal. Millbrook defence was put under pressure in the last 10mins but Millbrook kept up their determination to show that they can compete in this competition. Great 2-0 result on a personal note well done to the subs who have not had a chance to get many minutes on the pitch but should be recognised and are part of a wonderful squad this season. Up the Brook you are making the club proud and Cornwall
  8. Fantastic result for Millbrook. Great atmosphere at Jenkins Park. Millbrook showed thier pace up front with Foster and Sheperd in great form. An early goal from Sherborne against the run of play but soon it was Millbrook with all the possession and they took control of the game. Superb goal by Sheperd only downside was Hamilton picking up an injury but all the subs played thier part and I lok forward to the next round but the big match will be versus Torpoint it will be a cracker on Boxing Day
  9. Great result for Millbrook on Saturday it is a shame that the supporters stayed away as they really are a competitive team. I still feel it is such a shame they are not in the Peninsula West league as they would really be at home amongst the big pocket teams and enjoy bigger gates to help this club build off the pitch. Credit to Mark and his team for giving Millbrook the support and passion for local football. Also great to see the Cornish times giving coverage to Millbrook and Torpoint who are Cornish teams flying the flag in the East Division.
  10. Keith B I am a supporter and I agree maybe players can avoid being carded and the team I follow players pay their own fines for cards! I just feel was it necessary to put up the fines for a yellow card it is obviously not a deterrent as I see a lot given out. I know a lot of teams are not getting large gate numbers to off set costs. Small club houses can't even accommodate teams after matches or punters due to number restrictions and covid precautions. Not all clubs can afford extra staff to provide table service there seems to be extra pressures. On a positive note it is great to see football being played.
  11. Agree it could be very costly if you have to pay half the gate and travel costs that you could be left out of pocket even if you win at home for smaller clubs. I find it shameful that the cost of a yellow card has gone up especially as grass root clubs are under such restrictions this season.
  12. Do home teams pay towards travel costs of Away teams in the Fa vase? Seems a very odd rule if they have too?
  13. Elburton caused lots of problems for Millbrook last night in a very scrappy game. Lots of challenges and a good defence stopped Millbrooks normal fluent attack. It is a shame the sin bin was not used as this game? The introduction of Chapman and Payne helped steady the boat and Chapman and Hamilton both scored to save Millbrook both defenders as the strikers Foster and Sheperd struggled tonight. It was the worst performance I have seen by Millbrook these season and their passing game was non existent the midfield was poor. Big matches ahead Ilfracombe, Dartmouth, Crediton next month and Millbrook need to step up.
