Sunday County Cup

MPAD UTD 6 v Camborne Park 2

Good to get back to winning ways after our poor performance against Malabar two weeks ago.

We started brightly, but a poor decision at the back gifted Camborne the lead and the next 20 minutes saw us panic and stop playing football.

We drew level when Joel Ashton's shot from 25 yards beat the keeper but hit the crossbar and bounce down on the line. Chris Page followed up well and scored a diving header before the keeper could get to it.

Ashley Farrow then scored following a set piece to put us in front and we should have had a third before half-time, but a great point blank save from the Camborne keeper kept out Jamie Allen's header.

HT MPAD UTD 2 v Camborne 1

Camborne started the second half brightly, but we extended our lead when Farrow fired home a 30 yard free kick. That's five this season from centre back and his head is getting too big!

Shortly afterwards Ashton took a nasty tumble and landed on his knee. It's rare from him to get injured, despite his all actions displays, but he was off for his third trip to Trelissick since he joined us at the start of last season.

That seemed to affect us and another defensive lapse gifted Camborne a second.

However, although they did have some more chances their young players seemed to run out of steam and the pitch opened up allowing us to move the ball round and score three quick goals - two from captain Mike Cudlipp before a second for Page after a great through ball from Allen.

Probably could have had more at the end had our passing been better, but it was a good result, especially as I think it's the first time we've ever got past the first round of this cup.

All credit to Camborne. They played some good, passing football and have got some eager young players. Although I think they may struggle when games get more physical as they weren't the biggest or tallest team.

the league must be well aware tremough reshuffle every season and have decided to fixture in what have been title deciders among recent seasons for the first two games. Unbelievable!

I would say that the league have been incredibly supportive of Tremough over the years in terms of when matches have been played, or allowing them to cancel games that have been fixtured for a long time due to students going home for holidays.

At the last two or three AGM's the general feeling amongst other teams is that Tremough have received special treatment in the past to the detriment of other clubs.

I know last season Tremough did not complete their fixtures, against us and Booters, and neither team received the points.

So I'm not really sure how someone can complain that Tremough have had to play Truro twice, rather than say an 'easier' team at the start of the season, especially as the start of the league campaign has been delayed to allow Tremough first and second team to start the season at the same time as everyone else.

not speaking for tremough by any means.

potential title deciders more entertaining nearer the end of the season. rarther than at the beggining, when you get less competetive match, possibly??? last 4 weeks of the premier league, arsenal chelsea, manchester derby, liverpool chelsea

So when the fixtures are made, i

Suppose they know what the top 2 teams are going to be!! so what if all the players left one of

Those sides and were fighting to not be bottom, then the fixture would not be a title decider! You can hardly compare sunday league teams to top premiership teams.

I would disagree that it would be a potential title decider as Truro beat Tremough 12-0 and 8-2 last season with the 8-2 being the last game of the season.

Blue Anchor 6 Lamorna Keltec 2

St Breward 1 Troon 4

Saltash Old Boys 3 Rock Inn 2

Tregadillet 3 Packhorse 2

Foxhole v Penzance Astropark - home win, Penzance rung to say they didn't have enough players so would not be travelling which taking into account the distance is perhaps understandable. Real shame as I know Packhorse from "our league" when drawn against Penzance away last year in the Sunday Cup said what a great bunch of lads they were and a half decent side to who made them very welcome.

St Breward 1 Troon Army 4

Troon travelled to St Breward for this County Sunday Cup first round tie; the side travelled up via a minibus to make a day of it for this tie.

It was storm season in St Breward as there was a hurricane passing over during the game, with the 180mph winds making playing conditions very difficult. Skipper Woodman won the toss and decided to take the advantage in the first half, kicking down the slope with the wind. It was all Troon from the outset, time and again Troon created a number of chances but superb goalkeeping and poor finishing kept the scores at 0-0 until after 15 minutes Dan Oliver's cross from the right was volleyed home from 10 yards by Steve Retchford.

St Breward created their first chance when a couple of tackles were missed and a well hit drive was tipped round the post by Greg Manley Wells. You could say that Wells offered good protection to the goal; but Wells doesn't understand the meaning of the word "protection" after a girl he once met was giving birth to Wells's 17th child whilst the game was in process.

Troon kept playing football and could have had a penalty when Louis Goss appeared to be upended in the box; eventually Jason Philips grabbed the 2nd goal after he skipped past a couple of tackles his shot squirmed under the St Breward keeper. Retchford made it 3 minutes later after Goss was upended Retchford's freekick found the bottom corner of the net.

Troon kicked up the slope in the 2nd half and killed the tie off when Oliver skipped past a couple of defenders and squared for Philips to convert from close range. To their credit St Breward kept battling and Newton grabbed a lifeline when he pulled a goal back with 20 minutes to go.

Marles then won a full blooded 50/50, described by the referee as the best tackle he'd seen in 30 years. There was still time for that man Marles to get closer to breaking his goal drought for the season when his shot from range was marginally closer to the goal than the corner flag.

Credit to St Breward who never gave up and made the game competitive throughout; a home draw in the next round would be nice.

Having played against St Breward @ St Breward at least 10 times I can assure you if you had lost the toss you would have been kicking down hill first half. Same every game, try to get as many goals with the slope then spend the second half getting battered by their team, the elements and their supporters behind the bottom goal. I can also assure you that if you had played there in August the winds only drop to 179mph. Saying that they're a good bunch up there who make away teams very welcome.

Penzance astro were just as gutted not to play aswell we had a meeting on Thursday to rally the troops and see the players we had to travel to foxhole but unfortunately it was not to be the manager steve and his assistant roy did everything in there power to get this fixture fulfilled and we even met at Penzance tesco that morning at 8 to see what players we had to nake the long journey but unfortunately we just couldn't muster anywhere near the amount needed to make it worth while of travelling the distance and giving it a real go, we were completely ready to go with 10 and maybe even 9 but it just wasn't to be, gutting as we wanted to give this cup a real go, next week is a new week and we have some players back from injuries and work commitments and should be fine for the rest of the season sorry to foxhole got not being able to fulfil the fixture

it doesnt matter who plays who and when, at some point everyone has to play each other so who cares when you play the so-called favourites, tremough get special treatment so that they can work around term time, those were the terms that they said when they joined the league and clubs must of agreed to it when the applied to play, in the same way culdrose work it on a saturday

for markw, all due respect to everyone who plays sunday league football(i would still be myself if it wasnt for work), its not like there is sky down watching a game that could decide the sunday league title or even the fact there isnt a massive crowd of people that watch sunday league football, at the start of the season all teams are on an even level and its not until a couple games in that you can work out who is going to do what (unless your truro gwsra!), arsenal and liverpool played each other on the 1st day of this season, that could of been seen as a title clash given the size of the 2 clubs :thumbsup:
