Foxhole v Perranporth

Recommended Posts

I would just like to thank Billy and everyone at Foxhole last night for their hospitality. Our first ever outing to Foxhole, very impressed with the facilities, especially the changing rooms and clubhouse. This was Perranporth Reserves last friendly before our league kicks off on Saturday.

We went in 1-0 down at half-time, the Foxhole goal coming against the run of play in a half that the home team looked shell shocked. Second half was more even and both teams had chances to score. Two well taken one on one goals from Elliot Brown and Jamie Cox resulted in the game ending in a draw which on the balance of things was probably a fair result.

Perranporth Reserves

J.Mitchell, C.Barclay, A.Perkins, M.Bennetts, S.Harper, S.Jones, L.Dark, R.Maynard, L.Brown, E.Brown, B.Leete

Subs: S.Mansfield, S.Stribley, J.Cox, R.Watts (all used)

Thanks once again to Foxhole and good luck for the coming season :drink: :drink:

Foxhole 2 (McKellar, Rickard) Perranporth 2 (Brown, Cox).

Good result for Perran and the end of a great pre season.

Mick and Steve have worked hard to get us all fit and playing good football.

Missed this game but see you all on Sat for Mullion Res (away)

I expect with the squad we have we should do well in all competitions and hope to retain the FHFL 2 league cup (i'm going to stick my neck out and predict a treble, league, cup and junior cup) fingerscrossed!

Foxhole 2 Perranporth 2

Wednesday 12th August 2009

Perranporth impressed their hosts with some fine football in the first half and had several opportunities to build an impregnable lead. The intelligent movement of lone striker Leete twice created space which Brown failed to capitalise on, first with a far post header from a cross by the fleet-footed Darke, and then with a snapshot from the edge of the box. Leete was then unable to convert Brown's centre from the left and Darke fired a drive wide before Foxhole at last threatened Mitchell but Ansell's header from Pinhammer's inviting cross was weak. Somewhat against the run of play, the Foxes opened the scoring moments before the break when McKellar's volley from Kenny's corner crashed into the net despite the best efforts of Luke Brown.

The second half saw the pace quicken in the increasing gloom of misty Goverseth. Ansell spurned two half chances and Faircloth drove over, while Barclay ought to have at least tested Holland with a header from Elliot Brown's deep free-kick before, on 56, Rickard picked out Brown with more aplomb than the Foxes routinely managed with their team-mates. Brown could not repeat his cool finish seconds later when McKellar's poor clearance fell straight to him, which should have proven costly as the home team were shortly to enjoy their best spell of the match. Rowe found Rickard but the angle was too tight before Ryan Holland's drop-kick was neatly seized on by Rickard to restore the lead, but unfortunately the same player was unable to add to his tally with three golden chances that came his way in quick succession. However, the visitors made the most of such profligacy and, after Leete's effort from twenty yards had been finger-tipped wide, and Cox had nodded Brown's corner too high, it was no real surprise when Cox equalised on 83, running through a static defence to confidently beat the keeper.

Foxhole (3-5-2): Ryan Holland; Adam Holland, Tony McKellar, Nick Carpenter; Richard Faircloth, Sam Kenny, Dexter Lawrence, Scott Ansell, Daniel Meens; Liam Nicholls, Ross Pinhammer.

Subs: Mark Rowe, Carl Rickard.

Perranporth (4-5-1): John Mitchell; Craig Barclay, Sam Harper, Martin Bennett, Andy Perkins; Lee Darke, Elliot Brown, Ross Maynard, Simon Jones, Luke Brown; Barry Leete.

Subs: Shaun Stribley, Jamie Cox, Sam Mansfield, Rob Watts.

Referee: Mr Jon Harris (Nanpean).
