Truro GWRSA 4 v MPAD UTD 2

For the second time this season I felt we played well against Truro, but for the second time this season we ended up with no points.

Truro started strongly and took the lead with a very good strike from about 25 yards.

It took us about 25 minutes to settle down, and when we did we started to cause a few problems and created some chances and I felt disappointed to go in at half-time a goal down.

Then had to make a change as our left winger, who was having a good game, had to leave to be in work at KFC for 12pm!

HT Truro GRWSA 1 MPAD UTD 0

Second half was fairly even to start with but we gifted Truro a second with a defensive mistake.

But then we came back in to the game

A good cross from the left by Mike Cudlipp was chested down by Dale Bickford for Chris Page to pull one back.

We equalised about 10 minutes later when a good ball forward by Mark Jeffery was flicked on by Page to Cudlipp, who took his time and slot home.

I felt that we then took the game to Truro and had several chances to take the lead but failed to capitalise on our good play.

With about 10 minutes to go another defensive mistake gifted Truro their third. Our heads then dropped and Truro grabbed the fourth a couple of minutes later.

FT Truro GWSRA 4 v MPAD UTD 2

I would say that Truro are odds on to win the league. The big difference I felt today was that they were more clinical in front of goal and took their chances when they came along.

shortlanesnd 4-9 Penzance astro park

Great win over a solid Shortlanesend side. We flew out the blocks to lead 3-0 inside 10 minutes but then let Shortlanesend pull back to 3-3 with their expected threat from set-pieces and a somewhat dubious penalty. We then got a pen of our own after a Giggsy type burst down the left from the young *cough* left back, 4-3. Can't remember if Shortlanesend scored their 4th before or after half-time but we played some great stuff second half and ran out deserved winners. Shortlanesend never gave up and caused us problems all day, a great bunch of boys there. Cheers for the hospitality after, look forward to the return.

Troon 4 Crowntown 4

Troon after missing a host of chances threw away a 4 goal lead to a spirited Crowntown side who never stopped working and could have even nicked a winner late on.

Manager Jody Marles was without Troon icons Louis Goss who was on a modelling shoot in Milan and Dave Rowe who was in Argentina hoping to seal a loan move to Corinthians. Cult hero and father of 17 children Greg Manley Wells was also missing after failing to man up and play after breaking his ankle on Saturday. Rightback Tom Williams was also absent after DJing at Manumission the night before.

Troon went ahead after 10 minutes when Marles made a brilliant burst from midfield latching onto the end of Retchford's throughball before lobbing Cook in the Crowntown goal. Crowntown remained dangerous on the break without fashioning any real clear cut chances and Joe Day made in 2-0 on 35 minutes when he unleashed an unstoppable drive under Cook from range after a fine surging run. Troon had chances to add a 3rd before the break with Dan Oliver striking the post the closest to scoring.

Troon played their best football of the game and missed a host of chances with Retchford firing wide from close range following great interplay between himself and Oliver. Rob Goldsworthy eventually made it 3-0 on the hour when he cut inside from leftback and unleashed a screamer that crashed into the net off the post. Day then soon mae it 4-0 with a smart finish after a fine throughball from Marles.

At this point Troon seemed to have the game in the back but Crowntown made changes with Darren Drew's physical presence now giving the Troon backline something else to think about. In a crazy 10 minutes Tom Reynolds cut inside and produced a great finish to make it 4-1 but Gavin Perraton scored a 5 minute hat-trick to make it 4-4 although the equaliser may well have been marginally offside.

Troon withstood some late pressure as Crowntown went for the win in the last 5 minutes but failed to force an unlikely winner.

Credit to Crowntown who never gave up although Troon were dissappointed not to take all 3 points from a strong position.

Referee Wayne Gunn was also outstanding, one of the best I've seen this season :thumbsup:

Are Truro GWRSA as strong this year as they were last year? They have a re-match of the Sunday Cup Final against Carlyon Arms this weekend. They won the final at a canter last year though it was clear on the day Truro were on fire and Carlyon Arms had a stinker and just didn't show up. Both teams appear unbeaten in all competition so something will have to give this weekend.

Can only comment from our two games against them but I was disappointed not to take 6 points off them.

First game we were 2-1 and had a third goal ruled out with 15 minutes to go and they won 4-3. Yesterday, we were two down and came back to 2-2. Had enough chances to go in front, but a defensive mistake in the last 10 minutes let them take the lead and our heads dropped and they added a fourth.

They seem to be very good at getting goals in the last few minutes and have got that winning habit.

A few changes from last season - they've lost Tolly to combo and a few more of their physical players seem to be missing. But they've replaced them with good, fast young players.

What are Luxulyan like?

If Luxulyan have all their players available they will be a handful. Currently 3rd of 8 teams in our league having won 4 drawn 1 lost 4. Play better against stronger opposition, Carlyon Arms only beat them 2-0, when you consider Carlyon Arms have scored 53 goals in 8 league games it gives you an idea. Luxulyan drew the week before with the second placed team in our league Packhorse 2-2 and have just completed the double over the team that was third. Luxulyan are not overly aggressive, they're definitely not a team of thugs. Friendly easy going bunch.

Thanks for that. Not sure we would fit into the 'stronger opposition' category, especially considering our injury list at the moment.
