  1. Well here we’re at the end of another wonderful season in the duchy premier. I’d first like to congratulate every team in the division and also duchy for their efforts throughout the season. I’d also like to say congratulations to Nanpean on their double and congratulations to Polperro on their fantastic season - hard luck in the final! The mouthwatering tie of the day was a familiar story.. St Mawgan v foxhole. Not only was this a repeat of last years fixture but it seemed to be the two teams everyone was talking about throughout the whole season. After a delayed start, because of the first final, St Mawgan and foxhole were now set for battle at 5:30pm. St Mawgan stole the show early on, including their youth set up as mascots for the day - a fine touch by a fine club. Now it was about what the men could deliver and if it was anything like the season then this was set for a cracking game. The game started with a very cagey atmosphere and it was Foxhole who led the initial charge, with a very high tempo and a clear plan to close St Mawgan down quickly. Foxhole had a chance to open the scoring with Bould struck a thunderous strike into the cross bar - luckily for the opposition it bounced to safety. It was then another attack from the foxes, again it was Bould leading the charge but this time came controversy. Bould, right in-front of me may I add, took a heavy touch in the box and as he watched the ball go out for what would have been a goal kick he swung his leg in the way of on rushing ‘keeper (Cole) - cries of a penalty from foxhole were greeted with the refs whistle, initially I expected a yellow card for Bould for his theatrical fall but it was a penalty and a huge moment in the Match. Bould stepped up and went from hero to zero in a matter of seconds as his penalty landed back in foxhole - a big chance wasted for the league champions. After this it was a half of few chances until Bicknell (alex) was slid in by his teammate and hit his shot straight at Bullen who was rarely called upon in the opening 45 minutes. Both teams would be content with being in the game still at half time before the game kicked off and this is how it was coming out for the second half. Now it was St Mawgan who led the charge in search of a goal. St Mawgan were now enforcing their own game plan as they pinned foxhole back and battled the harder of the two teams. Eventually after a lot of hard work the moment came.. duchy leagues player of the season (in my and a lot of people’s opinion it appears) found himself on the end of a Jayne pull back and he made no mistake in sending the St Mawgan crowd to cloud nine with his 39th goal of a remarkable season. The game had now changed. Foxhole became desperate and stopped doing the things they did well for long periods of the game and suddenly could feel the final slipping away from them for the second time in two weeks. It only took 6 minutes after the first goal for St Mawgan to score again, this time it was Jayne himself who found himself in a crossing position on the left and whipped the Ball into the far corner to add to St Mawgan cup hopes. It was a strange last 10 minutes as foxhole never looked to really push on - maybe because of the well drilled Mawgan defence. With nine minutes to go Bould was in the action again, and again for reasons he’d rather not have been. He fouled the keeper and then talked himself into the sin bin, a disappointing final for a player that couldn’t quite fill the boots of their main man griffin. St Mawgan were victorious and could begin to celebrate their first ever major trophy for their first team in the history of the club. Well played to both sides and congratulations to St Mawgan who deserved at least one trophy this season. Well done to the league and the officials for doing a fantastic job all season.
  2. Fantastic semi final last night between two good sides. It has ended up being the two favourites in the final but didn’t Bodmin and veryan put up a fight! Bomdin were seconds away from a lottery shoot out against St Mawgan and foxhole held on to a single (brilliant) goal to beat Veryan. The Game started very fast and it wasn’t long before Griffin used his pace to beat the defender and earn his team a penalty, unfortunately for them Bould missed the resulting spot kick, nevertheless he made up for it with one of the best goals I’ve seen in duchy football this season. Veryan pressed hard and almost got their reward from a corner - rattling the crossbar from a flicked header. Foxhole denfended really well and stopped Veryan from getting one back before half time. The second half was a half short of chances, foxhole creating the better ones and hitting the post. Veryan had half chances but Whetters stopped the flow to most attacks. Then came the talking point, with minutes to go Griffin was given a straight red, from where I was stood he pressured the ball and as the ball was gone he did jump with his feet raised, this always runs the risk of a red card for dangerous play and credit to the linesman (all three officials were brilliant on the day I thought) for sticking with his decision and after speaking to the Ref it was deemed dangerous. With the suspension to be released in 7 days it does mean Griffin is able to feature for foxhole in the junior cup final (this Sunday at hayle), but it looks like his three game suspension will see him out for the rest of the season. Foxhole will feel it’s harsh and so will Griffin but without these officials we wouldn’t have football anywhere. Cracking game and a cracking final coming!
  3. Foxhole are certainly an exciting team but the ball doesn’t usually touch the surface - they should be too strong for veryan, even with their good run of form. Looking forward to watching some junior football now I’ve returned from my sunny break!
