FHL Div 3

Falmouth Athletic reserves 3-1 Ruan Minor

a well battled game on a bad pitch, all the money the council spent on drainage seems to be a bit of a waste looking at the state of the pitch we played on today, both teams still tried to play football and we were lucky to be 2-1 up at half time, 2nd half we took control, got the 3rd and seen the game out, a below par performance from us judging on the last few games but another 3 points on the board

Falmouth Athletic v St. Agnes called off due to waterlogged pitch, you could of played water polo on it it was that bad!

Guest The Linesman

Penryn 8 - Troon 1

I do agree with Bushby - it could have been more, but for some good last minute defending. However, what do you expect? It is the first season for this Troon team. We started the season in Division 3 and had really begun to find our feet and make some great progress, winning several of our early games.

However, with the downfall of the Troon second team, we were then advised by the League that we would have to take their place and play in Division 1.

What is the point of this? As mentioned, this is our first season so how can we be expected to compete at this level? It is very disheartening for all the players and coaches involved - we are obviously not yet of a good enough standard to be playing in this league and so what is the point of getting beaten each week? We were enjoying our football in League 3 and progressing well. How ridiculous for us and the teams we come up against each week now. This ruling could lead to yet another team folding.

As for todays match - we have never played a full match on astro turf and certainly not used to these conditions - our players said it was very heavy to play on. We were also without our regular goal keeper and several of our first choice players. However, please give us some credit - we turned up and faced the music! It would have been easy to back out at the last muinute, wasting everybody's time.

Thank you to all the Troon players for showing their continued loyalty and support.

Helston AFC Reserves 1 - Carharrack AFC 2

A well fought match saw Carharrack come out eventual winners against a young Helston side. Carharrack as ever attacked from the start and got their reward when Stuart Smeeth opened the scoresheet after just 5 mins. Both sides had equal amount of chances and on occasions it would have been easier to put the ball in the back of the net rather kick it over the crossbar. To be fair to Helston they really pushed the Carhararck defence and were unlucky not to have equalised in the first half. In the Carharrack changing rooms words were exchanged and it was agreed that we could up a gear in the second half. After the interval, both sides sensed the need to control the game and when the home manager Tony Basher complained to the referee that decisions were going one way I turned to him and said “Your lads are still in this Tony” unfortunately just as I said that visiting striker and top goal scorer Liam Bray curled the ball into the top right hand corner from 8 yards out. Not to be defeated the young Helston side had fire in their belly and were putting in some aggressive tackles to show they were not out of the game yet. With 10 mins to go match official Richard Oates signalled a direct free kick to Helston from 20 yards out. Upstepped Helston’s Fred Conway, who perfectly chipped stand in goalkeeper Mark Leah placing the ball into the back of the net. With 10 minutes left of play Helston felt they could steal a point and pushed everything forward causing Carharrack to panic for a period of time. But as time ticked down it was Carharrack that took maximum points and pushed them further towards promotion. Helston who are struggling in the league should not be disappointed with their performance but this weekend when both sides play each other in the Barker Bowl should take encouragement with how they played against a decent Carharrack squad.

Ref Watch: Richard Oates – Having never been officiated by Richard before he certainly was charismatic from the start and dealt with several incidents very well. Allowed play to flow rarely used his whistle only when needed. Hope you got your car fixed in the end mate!
