Bartlett Trophy Under 18 League Penzance 0 Newquay 1

Recommended Posts

This was a very good game by two commited sides on a bumpy drying surface. Both sides took a little time to settle and there was little in the way of clear cut chances early on. James Ward for Newquay was outstanding all game totally dominating at the heart of the Newquay defence. He was more than ably assisted by 16 year old Oliver Morrison, who made his Combination team debut at the weekend. Penzance had a copuple of chances that went wide of the target and at the other end Lewis Hilton had a shot scrambled off the line and then a left foot shot saved well by Gendall in goal for the Magpies. On the half hour mark Ben Currah scored at the far post on his debut after good work from Jason Doherty down the left. In the second half Penzance probably had more possession but could not break down the resolute Newquay defence. Danny Carne for the visitors came more into the game and his superb individual run taking him through the whole of the Penzance defence ended with a weak attempt to chip the keeper. Gendall then made an outstanding save from Hilton who chose to place his right foot shot after being set up again by Doherty. A fine cross from Dom Roberts found Alex Bicknell at the far post and his brave header hit the upright. Ford who was a constant threat for Penzance went on his own mazey run but put his shot went wide. 5 minutes from the end a scramble in the Newquay penalty area ended with the ball going out of play despite strong protests from the Penzance players that a penalty should have been given. All in all a thoroughly entertaining Monday night of football. Personally I thought that the referee had an excellent game letting the game flow when when he could and blowing up when he needed to. Well done that man. Newquay had 4 under 16 and 6 under 17 players in the squad and the future looks extremely bright for the future Peppermint teams.
