Foxhole 4 Perranporth 1

Saturday 3rd December 2011

Foxhole completed a routine victory over their struggling opponents in a low key affair. Adam Trudgian scored the first of his hat-trick inside eight minutes, tapping home after Shatford had parried Coates' volley. Gotthardt's teasing centre had not been typical of the home final ball as far too often sustained pressure was let down by poor delivery, so a combination of that and some uncomposed finishing meant there were to be no further goals before the break. Griffin flashed an effort across goal before side-footing wide at the near post following clever interplay between Coates and Trudgian, although the closest he got was to race on to Stephen's sixty-yard ball, but the keeper was equal to the toe poke. Spaul's all action style stood out and he was unlucky to see a low cross narrowly elude the onrushing Griffin, while Perranporth threatened only very sporadically, Sanders proving a willing runner upfront and Williams displaying some nice touches in midfield.

Sanders failed to reappear for the restart and the visitors' hopes of a fightback probably went with him as the Foxes immediately retained control. Adam Holland twice went close, first with a drive following a strong burst from deep and then with a firm header from Gotthardt's corner which was deflected wide. From the resulting corner Stephen's header was cleared from the line by Bradshaw before Stone thundered a fierce attempt just too high and Gotthardt tamely nodded over Griffin's lob. Foxhole were finally to be rewarded for their total dominance on sixty-three minutes, Trudgian chasing down Thomas' pass only to be needlessly bundled over by Shatford. Trudgian confidently despatched the penalty low to the keeper's right before releasing Griffin nine minutes later for the marine to fire home inside the near post, shortly after he'd headed Stone's cross onto the bar.

Shatford was not receiving adequate protection from his stretched defenders, so his reflexes to deny Gotthardt from distance counted for nothing when Bradshaw inexplicably handled the ball with thirteen minutes remaining to present Trudgian with the opportunity to plant his second spot-kick in exactly the same place as the first. Adam Holland struck the woodwork with a header and Griffin squandered an opening as the Foxes looked to ram home their advantage, but it was Perranporth who completed the scoring on eighty-seven minutes when indecisive defending caused Ryan Holland to push over Penna for Miles to blast home a consolation.

Foxhole (4-4-2): Ryan Holland; Joe Stone, Ben Thomas, Adam Holland, Ryan Stephen; Jaydon Coates, Jamie Coates (sub. Adam Gamble), Ben Spaul, Scott Daly (sub. Pete May); Adam Trudgian (sub. Tony Mackellar), Richard Griffin.

Perranporth (4-4-2): Dave Shatford; Matt Laithwaite, Jack Bradshaw (sub. Gareth Pye), Jason Barber, Ed Rowe; Lloyd Marks, Brandon Light (sub. Tom Ball), Andrew Miles, Billy Williams; Sam Barnes, Aaron Sanders (sub. Danny Penna).
