Result from first game this afternoon:

Falmouth Town 5, Helston Athletic 0

A decent competitive game between two under-strength Falmouth and Helston squads each missing several players.

Helston fought well for about an hour and had their share of chances (Liam Eddy in particular) before fitness finally told in the closing stages.

Falmouth goals: Graham Blake (og) 10 mins; Jamie Morrison Hill (44) half-time 2-0.

Brinton Nute (58); Steve Sims (69) and Morrison-Hill with virtually the last kick of the game completed the scoring.

We have held our own in all the games against higher opposition, they were just a bit sharper but on chances there wasn't much in it. Don't agree with the reff's 'sin-bin' decision though.

Result from 2nd game of the day:

Penzance 1 (Stuart Reynolds 44)

Porthleven 6 (Mike Brewer 1; Andy Westgarth 27, 32, 51 (pen); Glen Rogers 68; Hugh Howlett 89).

Full credit to Porthleven for an excellent all round team performance and, on this evidence, Gary Marks' side will take some stopping for the Division 1 West title in the new Peninsula League.

Penzance never recovered after falling behind to a first minute goal from Brewer, and couldn't handle Port's pace and movement, particularly the excellent Andy Westgarth up front.

New signing Stuart Reynolds did ok up front on his Magpies debut and weighed in with a good goal, but overall Porthleven were much fitter, organised and sharper all over the park and fully deserved the victory and the Dave Gardner Memorial Trophy.

FINAL TABLE:

P - W - D -L - F - A - Pts

1. Porthleven - 3 - 3 - 0 - 0 - 12 - 1 - 9

2. Falmouth - 3 - 2 - 0 - 1 - 8 - 4 - 6

3. Penzance - 3 - 1 - 0 - 2 - 6 - 12 - 3

4. Helston - 3 - 0 - 0 - 3 - 3 - 12 - 0

I think weve done well in this tournament. Competing with higher standard opposition with nowhere near our full squad. Falmouth Town the best side in the competion football wise with Port the fittest.

Met Dave Gardeners dad yesterday that was a privilege.Having played with Dave his dad is true gentleman just like his son..... This will stand us in good stead for the season. Well done to all the boys especially the youngsters whom came in from the Reserves credit to yourselves.

Friendlies arnt about thumping people 20 -0. We have learnt a lot from these games.... Great tournament.....

Didnt mean anything by it paps just an opinion. If you read my post it says Falmouth played the best football doesnt say they were the best. Some times in football the best side doesnt win you should know that and you will find that out this season Im sure m8. You were in my opinion the best junior side last season but you didnt win the junior cup. Port won this competition on merit well done to them but the best footballing side is Falmouth Town.........

Port have played well and deserved to win the tournament. I watched the 1st half of Port and Famouth and They deserved the 3-0 result. But having watched an understrength Falmouth yesterday they are a class footballing side. Unsure on the keeper though.............

Good luck to Port 1sts Falmouth 1sts and Penzance 1st teams......
