Duchy 5 result :-

Grampound Res. 7-2 St Newlyn East Res.

Scorers for Grampound : Ryan Orchard (5), Rob Sharpe and an own goal.

Result could have been a cricket score against a 10 man visiting team, but their goalkeeper made a long string of outstanding saves to keep the score reasonably respectable, and Grampound were their usual profligate selves in missing a few sitters too.

LC Phoenix 3 St Mawgan 1

Launceston College Phoenix took another clinical step towards claiming the Duchy 4 title with a hard working victory against St Mawgan. Missed chances in the first half looked ominous for Phoenix, but Nathan Cox calmed alumni nerves in the second half with a delightful curving chip into the top far corner of the goal. Then Harry Marsh claimed his sixth goal in four games with an exact finish from close range to give Phoenix a comfortable lead.

St Mawgan, however, were not down and out just yet. Centre backs Kev O'Donovan and Ryan Cox dealt with any St Mawgan threat in the Phoenix box, so it seemed inevitable that if a goal was going to come from St Mawgan it would be from distance- which is exactly what happened. At 2-1, St Mawgan went looking for the equaliser. Phoenix withstood the pressure, and reasserted themselves when Nathan Cox scored from the penalty spot after a St Mawgan handball. Overall Phoenix deserved the three points and wait for next Wednesday when they face title rivals, Lanivet Inn.

Probus 1 - 2 Lamerton

Another good result for Lamerton at the tail end of the season.

Both teams playing some decent football with chances created at either end Lamerton sealed the points with a well taken goal for the 1st from Jamie Montgomery and the secound a deflected own goal again from pressure from Montgomery, Didnt catch the name of the Probus player for thier goal but he was a quick talented player that took his chance after Lamerton failed to clear thier lines from a corner.

All the best to Probus for the last game of the season good bunch of lads and cheers for the chips after the game they were hansome.

Also id like to add that the game was very well and sensibly refereed today.

All the best to probus

Calstock 5-2 St. Newlyn East

Disappointing way to sign off as gaffer of the Saints but the game sums us up this season!

Would like to thank all the players who have played for me over the past 5 seasons. 4 back-to-back promotions aint bad I guess! To play this season with 9 players who were with me in Duchy Div 4 five years ago is fantastic and not something I would have thought possible 5 years ago.

Off to spend my Sats by a swimming pool now LOL!

Bere Alston United 2 - 0 St. Columb Major

Major made their longest away trip of the season for their final league game and came away empty handed, failing to capitalise on the surprising news that leaders St. Austell had suffered at the hands of local rivals St. Dennis.

The visitors encountered some difficulties that resulted in a delayed start for the early kick off and the first half summed up the pre-match preparations as it proved to be a lethargic end of season affair with both sides seemingly having nothing additional to play for. Major striker Ben Colquhoun had an early header saved and both sides failed to demonstrate any sort of cutting edge despite the fine playing surface and conditions.

Major had goalkeeper Casey Hawkey to thank for an unorthodox save as he pushed a lofted cross against the frame of the goal and was somehow able to react quickest to block a close-range strike. Hawkey was later on hand to make a solid block when faced with the first clear opening of the game. The first half ended as it started, with both sides seemingly comfortable playing a very average brand of football that was never likely to trouble the score.

The second half was a slightly different proposition as the hosts finally carved out the opening goal of the game. A hopeful high ball into the Major area appeared to result in captain Adam Weller being pulled back as he attempted to head clear, only for the bouncing ball to drop favourably for Bere Alston striker Josh Robins to poke home from close range.

The introduction of Jean Francois gave the visitors some much needed impetus and it looked the a tactical master class from Bicknell as Francois carved through the home defence, collecting a return pass from Dom Roberts before being crudely hacked down from behind as he shaped to shoot, yet play was halted due to an offside flag in the buildup. Major suddenly looked to have some purpose in the last half an hour as news filtered through that the champions elect had surprisingly succumbed to their local rivals.

Gaps were appearing as Major committed men forward and there will signals that one too many risks would ultimately cost the visitors dear. The atmosphere took a bizarre twist as a carnival float appeared alongside the pitch playing festive hits from the eighties and the hosts finally added a second when a long ball was latched onto by Robins who sidestepped Hawkey to slot home from a narrow angle. Major continued to search for an elusive goal and subsequently presented Robins with a gift to secure his hat-trick, only for the diminutive striker to inexplicably side foot wide from close range with the goal at his mercy.

Despite enjoying the majority of possession late on, already promoted Major were unable to create any clear cut opportunities and as a result suffered their first back to back defeats of the season, which now appears much more significant than originally anticipated as St. Austell will be crowned champions of Duchy Division One with the exception of a final day disaster at Pelynt.

Despite a disappointing conclusion to the season, Major's immediate return to the Duchy Premier League marks an outstanding achievement for Andy Bicknell's team and the club committee that have ensured a significant change in fortunes after an entertaining and fascinating return to form.

Heard the same AJW and also that some players will follow leaving st.columb in the same situation they were back a long. Hopefully not true as it would be a shame to see a newly promoted side disband so quick.

This one has been knocking around for a month or so; I can see why Andy's name has entered the equation, although I thought it was a bit early for the merry-go-round to start!

Andy has built a solid team of good friends with a balance of experienced local players that are in their twenties and a handful of youngsters that are showing great potential, so I can see the logic behind approaching Andy in the hope that a ready made squad would follow. However, there is very little discussion about this within the team as you can't take the pitch and facilities with you and the Red Lion is clearly too much of a pull factor for the Major lads! At this stage it is nothing other than rumours and with plans being made for next season it will be great to see Major testing themselves against Duchy Premier opposition; who wouldn't want to have two local derbies and another rendezvous with St. Austell?!

Testing yourself at a higher level is always going to be a temptation for players and managers alike, especially when a few quid is thrown into the equation. The fact that Space Raiders are sold behind the bar might just be the deciding factor....

Another strong result for Torpoint Athletic with a 3-2 win away to Gunnislake. That marks 4 wins from our last 5 after a bad run of results left us fighting relegation. Final game for us Wednesday and we are looking to finish on a high and take our good form into next season. Thank you to everyone involved this season.
