Mike Odgers Posted May 10, 2009 Report Share Posted May 10, 2009 Falmouth ended their disappointing season at Speads Meadow with a deserved late equaliser when Matt Drummond turned in a Pugliese free kick at the near post -3 minutes from time. A bright first half saw Town in the ascendancy but failed to turn their aproach play into goals and it was the Home striker Dean Stamp (Ex Truro) who spurned two of the best chances. Second half play was more even and Cullompton opened the scoring after 51m when a shot from Stamp was spooned by Chapman into the path of Matt Dawson. An immediate response from Falmouth saw Dave Rawlings with a bullet header rattle the Home crossbar following a corner but their persistance paid off with Drummond netting his 14th. goal of the season late in the game.

Cups.P8 W3 D1 L4 GF 15 FA29 With only 4 League Home victories at Bickland (only equalled by season 1981-82) this must be attributed to the drop in attendances this season (Averge 93 down 22%) The last time Falmouth failed to pass 50 league goals in a season was also in 1981-82 when in the Western league when they recorded 46. Making the most appearances (35),Dave Rawlings was the only player to start and finish the season wher 42 players have been used although Neil Slateford due to injury didn't start in the opening game. There is an air of optimism on and off the pitch for next season and Falmouth have turned the corner and are on the UP. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
