  2. Not sure where the bias comes in? Maybe I should get you a hearing aid when I’m getting my watch as he was called a T**t, which is also unacceptable. I didn’t mention that the same player ran up to the lad who was sent off and mocked him whilst he was on the side which could have brought a strong reaction, luckily the manager had good sense to withdraw the player at that time after he was cautioned for his behaviour. The reason I quoted 30 minutes was because 10 minutes stoppage time was added on
  3. St Teath v Marjons is probably the two youngest squads in the league. Marjons to edge it but huge respect to both of them for what they’re trying to do..Credit to Foul Throw for their prediction.. Credit also to St Teath for getting the game playable although the very heavy pitch made passing football extremely difficult. St Teath started the brighter with 2 good chances without testing the keeper when they should have done better before Marjons created some decent chances of their own but again wasteful finishing led to the first half ending goalless at half time Within a couple of minutes of the restart, Marjons took the lead when Louis Godwin got his first for the club with an excellent strike from just outside the box. Marjons had the better of the play and scored a second with a calm strike from debutant Callum Thomas. In truth, the pitch seemed to be the winner at this point but that changed when Connor Thomas received a straight red for dissent when reacting to a challenge from a St Teath player. Almost immediately, St Teath scored leaving Marjons to hang on for 30 minutes of normal play and what turned out to be 10 minutes of stoppage time with 10 men. St Teath had the lions share of possession and caused a threat from set pieces but Marjons held on until the last minute when a speculative shot from 25 yards sneaked in at the far post, causing wild celebrations amongst the home team and fans With play virtually up, the question was whether St Teath could get a winner against 10 men but credit to Marjons who didn’t let the goal affect them. After defending another set piece, Marjons broke and Callum Thomas beat his man on the sprint, turned inside the last defender and calmly slotted the ball into the net for his second of the game and the winner After a drubbing at St Dominic last time out (best team we have played all season), it was great character and spirit from the Marjons team which started with 9 players aged 18 or younger. Games like this are excellent for their development. Thanks to Will for the hospitality and good luck for rest of the season
  4. Marjons have not had a red card all season, there was 2 yellows resulting in a sin bin. I suspect that is why there was no mention or criticism of them
  5. Slag him off? Touch sensitive there.. I get the being slightly biased towards your own team but that game was far from a comfortable victory and the turning point was when the Foxhole physical approach bore dividends when Marjons were depleted after some “strong” challenges with key defenders being forced off with injury. At that point, Foxhole became the better team but for an hour it was a keenly contested game rather than “the offensive being resumed”. I know the game is all about opinions and people see things differently but I don’t really see the point in painting a picture to someone who wasn’t there that the game was really that one-sided when it wasn’t. I’m sorry if my original comment caused offence... Moving on, Marjons drew 1-1 today against Gerrans in what was an even encounter. Marjons started the brighter of the sides but Gerrans grew into the game and controlled much of the play without forcing the home keeper Eccles into action. Myron Vanstone was unfortunate not to score for Marjons when his long range effort hit the top of the bar and went over, only for virtually the same thing to happen at the other end a minute later. Somewhat against the run of play, Marjons took the lead after a breakaway goal, James Greenley beat a couple of players before squaring to Keiran McDonald who shot into the corner from 20 yards. Within a couple of minutes, the scores were level when the influential number 8 for Gerrans scored a screamer from 30 yards. Half time finished 1-1 Marjons started the second half on the front foot and were unlucky when CJ’s strike was pushed onto the post but in truth, the second half turned into a scrappy affair with no further clear cut chances being created although Gerrans were a constant threat from set pieces. The only sour point was when a Gerran’s player got a straight red a couple of minutes from the end following a late challenge (rumour has it he missed the bus home it was that late 😉). Apologies to the away team of my report is too biased.. Thanks to all for a decent game 👍
