Paul Hampshire, midfield maestro of old, now centre forward and wearing the No.9 shirt, 2 goals from outside the area. Jims formations at times are confusing, it was a relief when he announced that he was going to 4-4-2, everyone understood that one, even Hammy dropped back into the middle.

St Dennis could and should have had 3 goals before they did take the lead from a poorly defended corner, Luke Payne keeping C & L Ricks at bay with some stunning saves from quality strikes. Newquay took control and penned the hosts back, with goals from Hammy and a superb header from Middleton on the half hour. The ref awarded St Dennis a free kick on the edge of the box, to the amazement of everyone. The strike itself was first class and deserved a goal.

St Dennis came out quickest in the 2nd half but it was Newquay that went 3-2 up, then choas ensued and goals flowed, 3-3, 4-3, 4-4, 5-4, 5-5. A complete nightmare for defences and Jim looked slightly worried walking back to his car, Peppermints fans can expect another roller coaster season, lets hope it ends on a high.

St Dennis will walk whatever Division they are in with the Ricks brothers causing problems whenever the ball is fed up to them or from set peices.
