Duchy League Division 1

Grampound v Altarnun MATCH POSTPONED

With both teams in their warm-up,the referee (Tony Allen) decided that the pitch was not playable. Both teams thought the pitch was OK and in fact it is the driest it has been since the start of November, another referee had looked at it in the morning and decided it was fine, and it was infinitely better than at the start of either of the 2 games played on it last weekend. Grampound's pitch is never the best, by a long way, but it was soft with a few footmarks and could not remotely be described as dangerous - no standing water, no mud - just a soft pitch. Another Saturday lost but at least the ref avoided playing a match he clearly did not want to be at.

North Hill 1 Padstow United 4 Duchy 5

Padstow started the game with the manager absent due to commitments, but Russell McOwen stepped up and done a great job, They started with a few fringe players due to injuries and to give players a chance and everyone gave their all,North Hill were brilliant in the first half and completely shut Padstow out while creating a few chances of their own.McOwen made a change at half time and put Kyle Tippett back upfront and the 2 normal strikers settled back where they left off with tippett creating 3 of the 4 goals.johnny Murt flew down the wing and beat his man and slotted it into the bottom corner to make it 1-0. then padstow were awarded a freekick and Sean Blows stepped up and was quite furtunate that it went in after a tame effort,lol.North Hill Never gave up and scored a very good breakaway goal of their own.With North Hill camped in the padstow half the green army broke from a great throw by the goalie,jake charles,johhny murt,kyle tippet and sean blows were knocking the ball round with blows scoring with a low drive to the bottom corner from outside the box. Matt Cortis (left back) made a great strike after going up front after picking up a knock.all in all a great game,good luck to North Hill for the rest of the season as they played extremely well.

Duchy League Cup - 1st round

Premier Sixes 4 - 2 Bridge Rule

HT 2 - 1 1-0,1-1,2-1,2-2,3-2,4-2

Ben Lawrence, Martyn Probert 2, Karl Olander

P6 came into this with 13 wins from 14, Bridgerule came in with 8 wins from 8. We didnt play brilliant and rotated the squad around a bit from last weeks junior cup team but did enough even with Probert having a penalty saved. At times Bridgerule looked like the side who have an astro as a home pitch as they stroked the ball around the pitch. They are without doubt the best team we have played this season and will take some stopping in the race for the Duchy 5 title. I spoke to the league secretary earlier and even he claimed it was a good result given the quality of the new Bridgerule players that have been transferred in. The Bridgerule GK was outstanding saving several one on ones and then saving Proberts penalty. Karl Olander made the game safe in the dying minutes with a truly spectacular 30 yard effort that curled into the far corner.

Great bunch of lads and a shame that one team had to go out as they would have gone very far in this competition

Bodmin Trophies Duchy Football League from Michael Newcombe

Saturday 23rd January 2010

Boscastle gave Premier high flyers Gunnislake a pile of problems before the visitors moved into the third round of the Jeffery’s Estate Agents Knock Out cup with three goals in the final fifteen minutes. Boscastle deservedly went into the break one ahead from a Bradley Powell header. They were unfortunate not to double this lead on the stroke of half time but the effort missed the goal. Gunnislake roared forward in the second half but the hosts were holding firm until the late goals. Jarryd Kelly, Stefan Kelly and Tom Hall were the scorer’s.

Tywardreath RBL are also through to the last eight after a last gasp 3-2 win over Bodmin Saints. RBL started looking rather rusty through a lack of football and fell behind on twenty minutes when a good ball through the middle found Dave Jefferies who finished coolly. RBL equalised when Martyn Jones headed a Simon Johnson corner home and Johnson then scored himself to put them ahead. Some sloppy defending put Saints back in the match as RBL gave away poor free kick. Joe Orchard swung in the kick from wide out on the left with his right foot and no one else got a touch as it went in for the equaliser. RBL brought on veteran Kevin Biddick near the end and it was from his run in the final minute that he just touched the ball past the keeper who caught his foot and a penalty was awarded. Jones scored from the spot and then RBL had to endure an anxious eight minutes of injury time.

Saltash United weathered a fierce first half storm of St.Cleer pressure before emerging with a 2-1 win from this first round tie. St Cleer had many chances in the first half, but couldn’t put the ball in the net, or get past the Ashes impressive young keeper Ash Tucker. The visitors arrived with 4 senior players missing, giving the team’s younger players the opportunity to play in this game. At half time, the Ashes changed the playing formation back to 442, and almost instantly saw the game change. Saltash won a free kick, on the outskirts of the St Cleer box, and a well taken kick by Keith Adams, saw Josh Fairweather climb above the St Cleer defence to head the ball into the net on 65 minutes. Saltash pushed on and a well worked move involving Lee Hawkins and Matt Fulton down the St Cleer left saw a pass from Hawkins to Fulton, and Fulton took on several players to smash a left footed shot into the St Cleer goal on 75 minutes. St Cleer never gave up, and their pressure won them a penalty in the 80th minute where Ashley Hutchings scored from the spot to make the last ten minutes exciting. Both sides pushed on, and both defences handled the pressure well. Saltash owe a lot to keeper Ash Tucker for keeping them in the game, he pushed a shot over the bar in the last minute to give the win to Saltash, who will face Torpoint for the third time this season in the next round. Extended report.........St Cleer 1 Saltash United 2

Bridgerule took a strong side to the Astro Turf at Premier Sixes in the League Cup and played the better football on the surface. Sixes who reached the Junior Cup semi-finals last week were the first to admit that this was the best side that they had faced all season, but it was the home club who triumphed 4-2. Sixes opened the scoring after fifteen minutes when Ben Lawrence hit an unstoppable thirty yard free kick, but Marc Burman netted an equaliser from close range. Martyn Probert restored the home lead before the break only for Dan tape to draw the visitor’s level again when he headed in twenty-two minutes into the second half. Probert scored his second to restore the lead but then saw his hat trick chance denied when his penalty was saved. With the result very much still in doubt Sixes scored the clincher in the last minute when Karl Urlander bent in the goal of the season with a spectacular thirty-five yard screamer.

St.Teath got back to Premier League action with a 6-1 defeat of Pensilva. Ted Meagor put them ahead but it was a disjointed performance and the basement side shocked the hosts with an equaliser from Jack Podmore before the break. St.Teath upped their game in the second half but were nowhere near top form. A long throw found Darren Burden who put St.Teath back in front with Meagor then scoring three quick goals to put the game out of reach. Jamie Kay wrapped it up with the sixth goal near the end.

Launceston United increased their advantage at the top of Division One with Chris Rockell scoring a brace and Ryan Crabb adding another goal in a 3-2 defeat of St.Stephen. The visitors replied with strikes from Matt Spry and Luke Truscott.

Maker with Rame moved off the bottom and leapfrogged their visitors Godolphin to jump out of the bottom two after a 2-1 win. Tom Rothwell and Matt Radley scored the home goals.

Probus drew two all with Week St.Mary with Martin Bishop and Ben Colquhoun getting the home goals.

Polperro faced a resolute St.Breward side playing five men across midfield and looking to settle for a draw in the Division Two clash. The first half ended goalless but Polperro broke the deadlock twenty minutes into the second half from a close range Marcus Wills header. Nathan Pearce then put the hosts two ahead before home keeper Barrie Collings made a fine one on one challenge to deny St.Breward a consolation.

St.Newlyn East struggled owing to long periods of inactivity caused by the weather but eventually gained a vital 2-1 win at Holywell Bay/Cubert Athletic in their promotion push. They started brightly and could have scored in the opening ten seconds but Liam Dent shot over. The opening goal soon came when Chris Ballett drilled home from the edge of the box. Russell Withers was then fouled in the box but Ryan Polmounter saw his penalty kick well saved. Holywell were always dangerous on the break down the slope and from one such attack they won a free kick which was deflected in for the equaliser from a tight angle by Tom Hargreaves. The second half was all Newlyn and Dent missed numerous chances. Jimmy Ward also hit a bar before Withers outpaced the home defence with five minutes left to score the winner.

Looe Town reserves retain top spot after a 6-2 defeat of Calstock. Rob Spencer scored a hat trick and Max Anderson a brace in an impressive victory. Danny Carroll completed the home total with Mark Blanks and Darren Benfield replying for Calstock.

Bere Alston United were in scintillating form in the first half of their game with Pelynt racing into a five goal half time lead. Mike Waldron scored a hat trick with Graham Galway and Dan Behennah also finding the net. As the second half progressed tiredness crept into the home side that had only played once in the last ten weeks and Pelynt showed great character to reduce the final arrears to 5-2 with Tony Harman and Tom Cantwell scoring. And praise for the referee who had a fine game.

Camelford are still without a win after losing 2-1 in a good game with near neighbours Delabole United. George Hughes scored for Camelford, but two Kallum Binney goals gave the visitors the spoils. Extended report........

After a hard fought point last weekend against local rivals St Breward, an improved Camelford side took on another local rival in Delabole. With local pride at stake and even more so Camelfords 1st win of the season, the game started at a fast pace. Chances either end of the pitch progressed in Delabole taking the lead with goal from a lively Callum Binney. Camelford responded with a few of their own chances and were unlucky not to have equalised when a good move between midfield and attack broke down at a vital moment.

Delabole gained more momentum as the half went on and had a few chances to press further ahead but Camelfords defence stood strong. In the 38th minute, Delabole attacked and scored a fortuitous 2nd when a miscommunication between defender and goalkeeper allowed Callum Binney in. What should have been a straight forward backheader to the goalkeeper, was spilled and fell straight to the onrushing Callum Binney who slotted away possibly his easiest goal of the season so far.

As the half was drawing to a close, Camelford got a corner and after a wonderfully delivered ball by Gary Masters (on his debut), George Hughes rose above all the Delabole defence to send a powerful header into the roof of the net.

A good half time team talk saw Camelford come out a different proposition at the start of the second. Picking up the pace, Delabole started to tire as Camelford pressed and pressed for the goal that would surely have brought them right back in the game. Chance after chance fell to the Camelford players but resolute defending and good goalkeeping kept Camelford at bay. As the 2nd half drew to a close, chances a plenty fell to the Camelford strikers but could find no breakthrough and a good game came to end with Delabole the victors.

AFC St.Austell moved to the top of Division Three after a closely fought 4-2 win at Gunnislake reserves. The game played at St.Anns Chapel was evenly fought in the first half with Jason Goldsmith scoring both Gunni goals as the half ended with them leading 2-1. St.Austell upped the anti in the second half and went on for a deserved win. The visitor’s goals came from Phil Hutchings, Steve Kellow, Lee Harvey and Nick Bennetts.

St.Dennis suffered a disappointing home defeat in their derby with Queens Rangers. Casey Laity scored a brace with Chad Gibson also scoring in the three nil win.

Biscovey beat Pensilva reserves four nil with Steve Branchett, Chris Burns, Ashley Gilbert and Ali Milton on target.

Stratton United beat Roche 3-1. Nick Purcell, Tim Couch and Jamie Osborne scored for Stratton with Jamie Robinson replying.

Gorran were thrashed 5-1 at home by Wadebridge Town. Dave Grose scored the home consolation.

Division Four leaders Gerrans bounced back well from last weeks first defeat to win three nil at title rivals Tintagel. Ryan Harris scored twice with Haydn Andrew also target.

Sticker are now clear in second place after a four nil romp at Southgate Seniors. A first half double from Mark Carter ensured the visitors held the upper hand at half time. Southgate came more into the game in the second half but Sticker struck with a third goal from Sam Walker to put the result beyond doubt. A good run by Alex Keast put Mark Bennetts through for the visitors fourth to finish the game off.

The North Petherwin versus Newquay Minor game featured four penalties and ended at four apiece. Newquay were awarded three of the spot kicks which were all converted by Dominic Roberts on a day he scored all of the visitor’s goals. Two of those penalties were hotly disputed as was the one awarded to North Petherwin right on time that was put away by Chris Riordan for the match saver. Callum Reeve, Mike Riordan and James Gorst scored the other, less controversial home goals.

St.Teath reserves were fortunate to get a 2-1 victory over Grampound reserves. Veteran Mike Bawden fired the visitors ahead with a long-range shot and he later hit a post. Ryan Orchard also went close for Grampound with St.Teath later hitting the woodwork and forcing two good saves out of young Grampound keeper Adam Smith. Grampound continued to control the game in the second half with Henry Hughes missing two good chances. There were just six minutes remaining when St.Teath got their equaliser from a disputed free kick which was finished by Roger Beare. Then in the last minute the visitors were devastated when another disputed referee decision penalised Andy James and Adie Jeffs scored the home winner from the spot.

After thirty-five minutes Callington Town had established a 3-0 lead against a seemingly out of sorts Mount Charles, at this stage there was little indication that the game would finish 5-5. Callington had not played for 6 weeks, but within the first five minutes Chris Bartycha finished a fine move involving Sam Gale and Lewis Chrimes to put the home side in the lead. Kane Wilson scored the home team's second goal on twenty minutes, and Chrimes persistence paid off following a defensive mix up by Mount Charles to put Callington 3-0 up. In a mad few minutes before half time, Jake Blythe scored with an overhead kick for Mount Charles, who then hit the post, before Sam Blount claimed their second after the ball hit both posts before crossing the line, to make it 3-2 at half time. Straight from the kick off, a long ball saw Neil White catch out the home defence to equalise. White again scored this time with a neat flick from a long throw to put Mount Charles in front for the first time in the game on seventy-fifth minutes. In the last five minutes Chris Bartycha scored twice to regain the lead for Callington and complete his hat trick, before Peter Thomas scored right at the death for Mount Charles to ensure a share of the points. For Callington this was their fourth consecutive draw.

Stoke Climsland stay bottom after a 5-1 home defeat by Lewdown Rovers. Tom Gosling scored a hat trick for the visitors. Further goals came from Andy Terry and Mark Jordan with Toby Chapman getting the home consolation.

Mevagissey reserves faced Division Five promotion hopefuls St.Cleer reserves in a cracking Division Five match. Mevagissey missed some good chances in a game that could have gone either way. It was finally settled by a lone goal from St.Cleer’s Lee Powell in the fifty-second minute who finished with a superb looping shot.

Second placed Padstow were being held goalless at half time at North Hill, but right from the kick off in the second half North Hill put through their own goal. Padstow went on to win 4-1 with Sean Blows getting a brace. Jimmy Richards scored the home consolation.

Tregony lost top spot to Padstow after a surprising 2-1 home defeat by the Duke of Cornwall. The visitors scored with their only two chances of the day from Paulo Jorge and Steve Masters. Tregony dominated the match with up to twenty chances but could only score once through a Steve Cawrse goal.

Charlestown Saints moved closer to the top from a 7-2 defeat of Boscastle reserves. Tim Osborne scored four goals with Nick Mills, Russell Housego and Francisco Silva completing the rout.

Only three games were postponed today. The matches between Grampound and Altarnun, St.Minver and Nanpean and Pelynt Reserves v Delabole reserves were lost more to the damage caused by playing last week than the weather of this. A welcome relief for a number of clubs to get a game under their belts as the weather at last relented.

I've got no problem about refing Grampound games :D:drink:

My other post was actually about the linesman from Lewdown who another also saw fit to comment upon.

Thank you, Anita. Like other clubs, we have no problem with you or other sensible referees either.

Fair enough Anita but the point here is that a referee has made a decision and should be respected for it,

Not moaned about on a forum.This applies to all teams!

I can understand the frustration of Grampound but if the ref really didnt want to be there then why turn up.

Tywardreath RBL v Bodmin Saints:

This was a good game and very tight until the last few minutes when Saints took control after a dubious penalty was awarded against keeper Libby. A mention for the home linesman. Pathetic and a disgrace!

Good luck to RBL.

pablo if its the same linesman i came up against last season i second that,must have won 10 points for them on his own last year.but at the end of the day its still the ref's decision.bring video technology to the duchy leagues i think,lol,just kidding by the way!!!!!!

Some harsh comments from Pablo and Blowsy on here about our linesman on saturday.

For the record he isn't a regular linesman for us. We generally have one of our subs running the line but he has done the job on just a few occasions. Its always far too easy to blame the lino's who have a tough enough job as it is. Think Pablo should just accept the fact that Tywardreath RBL are the better side. It may have been a closer game than the previous meeting when we beat you 6-3, but i think we were fairly comfortable without being at are best.

And blowsy suggesting that our linesman would contribute to our points total is rather pathetic. Give us credit for the football we play. Last season we played some great football and shot ourselves in the foot over the last month to narrowly miss out on promotion. We dont intend to do it again.

We all have our gripes with linesman but ultimately the better sides will come out on top, regardless of how frustrated we all get with the officials who are only human and WILL make mistakes!

Like most refs I myself come across a lot of club linesmen in the course of a season, some better than others but it is easy to attack them for your own short comings. As a ref I have been blamed many a time for a teams defeat, but hey that comes with the terrority I operate in, even though again the ref is an easy target. The late penalty the iffy free kick or the obvious offside they all are on the list of moans at the ref or linesman. even though 99% of the time its the teams failure to cope with the play at that time. Try to remember if you had no linesman I as the ref could easily refuse to play the game, so when joe bloggs is willing to take the flag thank him don`t blame him, The ref can always overule him if he believes him to be not wrong but mistaken. This Saturday one of my linesman flagged offside on three occasion and I over ruled him not that he was wrong as the angle he saw the line was different to mine so when I waved him down he understood the reason as in my team talk with him prior to the game I explained what I required, this helped him to understand the way I needed him to assist me and made him feel part of a team, even if he was a willing volanteer or just a sub roped in to help.

So it is down to you the Ref to make this volanteer feel at ease with what he has to do, and both teams to give him a fair crack. AND ALWAYS REMEMBER THE REF CAN OVERULE IF HE FILLS THE FLAG IS IN CORRECT., so if he does not overule, the flag was right in the refs eyes so leave the linesman alone.

JUST THINK IT COULD BE YOU RUNNING THE LINE NEXT WEEK AND HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF SOMEONE CAME ON HE AND SLAGGED YOU OFF . not to good i bet .

The nature of our late winner would of left a bitter taste in the mouth for your team and of course you were hard done by in that sense, but in truth we should have been leading at half time! I felt the scoreline could have been more comfortable but we didnt take our chances. I recall the woodwork coming to your aid on at least two occasions.

It was definitely a much closer affair than the league match so take heart from that. Should be a competitive game at the dragon centre i'm sure.

Good luck for the rest of the season.

nothing against your lino ,you beat us fair and square on the day,but there were decisions that were baffling,lets just say i remember a quick throw in,player through on goal 1 on 1 with keeper,flag goes up,ref brings back play to find out it was for "offside"(didnt know you could be offside from a throw).in the same game,lino contributes to a st merryn player gettin sent off for pushing a player away who had just punched him in the face.

im the first to go shake the linesmans hand after the game regardless of his performance and respect what they do,i have ran the line many times when injured and have no hesitation to do it again as i feel i am fair.(will never please everybody!!! but thats life) but when i watch someone who doesnt know the rules denying a player a goalscoring opportunity surely there is a problem.

i really dont know who your linesman was that day maybe it is a 1 off.

you say the ref can over-rule,fair point but he will always take the linesmans decision if he was in a better position.

if someone comes on here and slags me off for any performance then i take it with a pinch of salt and try to improve for the next game.

i have no problem with you or your linesman

and yes i do credit you for the football you play,personally you shoulda won the league.

all the best for the rest of the season!!!!

and pablo tell darren martindale he is a thug,love him really ;)

I'm betting we had the same lino, Blowsy! His flag-waving went well beyond the call of duty. Ah well, it's done and dusted now but someone should have a quiet word in his ear. Maybe insert the partially guilty flag where it can't do any more damage ..... on the field anyway!. LOL

I'll tell 'Dazbo.' And yes, Anita, he is occasionally wayward.

I watched the RBL v Bodmin Saints game on Sat and from where I was standing in the 2nd half (in the corner behind RBL's lino) I thought he was spot on with his decisions barring one.

In my opinion RBL should of been 3 or 4 - 1 up at half time with the number 9 missing 2 or 3 good chances. Bodmin Saints came back stronger in the 2nd half.

And again in my opinion, it was a defo penalty
