  1. Lee Budge, Ryan Lavery and, more recently, Ben Colqohoun have joined us in Duchy League Prem Division and pay a £5 to play each week.
  2. Tregrehan Mills 3 - 1 Chacewater (h-t 2-1) Without our regular keeper and on a sticky surface, we knew we would be entering into a real cup tie against unknown Trelawney opponents. Chacewater started the stronger team and caught us out on several occasions with their attacking formation and speed out wide. One of the few occasions in the first half we played our football Glyn James finished off a good cross to settle us down. That said, the visitors kept coming and a cracking strike from the left sided player into the far corner made it 1-1. This sprung us into action and we finished the half better with our 2nd goal coming from a Glyn James run and finish into the corner. 2-1 at halftime. After a good half time chat, we ironed out a few things and played better in the 2nd half as Chacewater appeared to run out of steam. Matt May added a 3rd with a sweet strike from 25 yards following a corner, and we feel we could/should have had more as we limited Chacewater to the off half chance. It finished 3-1. Chacewater are a far better team than their league position suggests and can see them progressing up the leagues with the squad yesterday. Great lads and gracious in defeat who came back for hospitality after the game and filled up the scratch card and enjoyed a pint. We have never faced Trelawney league opposition before, and if Chacewater are an example of the club's in that league structure, we hope to meet another in the next round. Enjoyable afternoon for us, and hope Chacewater enjoyed their visit to Par (result aside). Good luck to them for the rest of the season.
  3. A good, hard flight game at Stoke Climsland today. Seeking revenge for our 2-0 cup defeat earlier in the season, we were back to nearly full strength and up for this fixture. We played very well on the counterattack whilst holding Stoke Climsland off and soaking up pressure. A great finish from Glyn James and a 35 yard Free kick which squirmed under the keeper saw us come to half time 2-0 up. A focus on playing our passing game and retaining possession saw us play better and go 3-0 up with a Glyn James header from a Lee Budge cross. Stoke C pulled one back with a breakaway goal and finish amidst huge cries for offside. We began to turn the screws and our late dominance saw a great cross toe poked in by Ryan Lavery to make it 4-1. A great game, played in cracking spirits and, apart from a hot headed number 10 getting angry all 2nd half, Stoke Climsland played with their usual sporting and combative approach. Great hosts after the game, just a shame more of them didn't want to share a beer afterwards. Those that did, were a class act as always. 1 win a piece, 2 more fixtures to come which we very much look forward to. A quick word on the ref. He was being assessed today, usually a warning sign for cards and sinbins aplenty, but he was by far the best ref we've had so far this season. Approachable, definitive, consistent and obviously very experienced. An absolute pleasure to have control the game. If he is the standard of ref we have to replicate when not allocated one by the league, we are going to struggle for sure! Hoping we can get on a run of results with a full squad and finish high up the table this season in a tough league.
  4. Tintagel 2-3 Tregrehan Mills. (Glyn James 2, one OG) 9 players away and scraping around for players until 10pm Friday eve, this was never going to be an easy task against an experienced and physical Tintagel side. At half time we were 2-0 up and coasting, thanks in no small part to our hosts cb's backside finish! We had numerous chances and another goal disallowed for offside. Half time team talk was along the lines of "more of the same". Then, the following happened. One of our stand in players disagreed with the decision and foolishly called the ref something unsavoury and was justifiably (if harshly) shown the red card. No qualms at all until the ref also awarded them a penalty for the same offence. As I understand it, it should have been an indirect freekick? This confused us and any help from this forum would be appreciated. Another penalty (this time stonewall) after our cbs heavy touch and it appeared our bogey team had got the best of us again. 2-2 and even with 10 men we didn't really looked troubled. On 88 mins another break saw our cf break through, round the keeper and finish. 3-2 . Huge celebrations. We saw it out to take all three points. Our first win at Tintagel as a club but an afternoon made less comfortable thanks to a bizarre decision with the award of the penalty. The Tintagel boys are always good value and fierce competitors but great fun in the bar after, as we believe it should be. Great hosts and we look forward to repaying the hospitality later in the season. Very satisfying result with our severely depleted squad.
