St. Minver Reserves 3 - 1 St Newlyn East Reserveres

Scoring started 10 minutes in by Ben Cross (St Minver), a screamer from outside the box. St Newlyn East responded about 20 minutes later after hitting the woodwork! A penalty early in the second half taken by Ben Cross made it 2-1. Shaun Cunnigham finished the scoring with a spectacular lob on the away teams keeper.

St Newlyn dominated in the air and made it hard for the home side but it was St Minver who took the points, however it was not easy!

Olly Rose (8) made the difference tirelessly working in the centre of midfield, taking the home sides managers man of the match.

Camelford 3 3 St Minver

Camelford earned a great point at home to St minver, with a gutsy and gritty display. Camelford found themselves one nilup inside the first ten minutes through a deflection from Matt Smiths first effort on goal that lobbed the Minver keeper.

An absolute dream for the camels who knew what a tough game this would be for the young team.Camels were in absolute dreamland shortly after when a good move started from the middle, before a pinpoint crossfield ball from Aaron Williams fell to the feet of inform forward Dan piper to volley home from outside the box.Minver reorganised and started to find their feet.They got one back when their was confusion in the box and poked home in a scramble. Camelford rode their luck at times but worked like trojans back to front to go in at halftime in the lead.Minver reorganised again after the second half and were much improved, and more confident on the ball. They drew level and were good value for it as the workrate the camels were showing was taking its toll. Minver took the lead with ten to go and Camelford looked done for the day. With the ball being pushed deep in to the St Minver half Camelford earned a free kick within range that Matt Smith was unlucky not to score from, but for solid hands from Chris Andrews which jumped up and over for a corner.Delivered well into the danger area of St Minvers back post by Jack Shaw, Cb and Captain George hughes nodded home from a crowded area! Unbelievable stuff for the camels who made sure they had something to show for all their hardwork. Camels even nearly earned three points at the death but Craig Thompsons effort lacked composure when presented with a golden opportunity, but that would of been unfair to st minver,who definetely have a lot of quality.They will regroup, and all i know is im glad were not the team playing them next week.A great effort to get a point against a good side, made sweeter by the fact we had five regulars out.welk done lads, more if the same please.

Duchy Round up by Mike Newcombe

St.Columb Major opened their Premier Division campaign with a two all draw against Calstock. Dom Roberts saw a seventh minute penalty saved for the hosts, but quickly recovered from this setback with Will Bennett giving them the lead. Having taken the lead the hosts relaxed and allowed Mike Brown to equalise from a corner in the thirteenth minute. Calstock then broke quickly in the twenty-ninth minute and Brown headed a lovely cross in for his second. Jean Francois missed an open goal for the hosts before half time and the same player hit the bar after sixty-six minutes. Major were now putting the visitors under a lot of pressure and eventually it told with Jamie Seery equalising in the eighty-fourth minute. Major went for the win and the visitors goal led a charmed life in injury time alone with four efforts, one way or the other, being kept out.

Sam Bullen scored all four goals as Probus continued their good start with a four nil defeat of Lamerton. The game was quite even for the opening thirty-five minutes with both sides battling for the points. Bullen put Probus ahead after a goal-mouth scramble and headed a second from a corner just before half time. The second half started as the first did before Bullen hit a shot from the edge of the area for his hat trick goal in the seventieth minute. His fourth was even better, a shot from twenty-five yards.

Josh Frampton scored a hat trick as last season’s champions Fowey United opened with a 4-2 win over St.Mawgan. Rory Barnicle completed the home scoring with Sean Lambart scoring a brace for St.Mawgan.

Leaders AFC St.Austell were given a tough game by a young Torpoint Athletic side, but first half goals from Peter Davey and Jeff Dillon proved enough to secure a 2-1 win.

Altarnun and Week St.Mary both opened their seasons in Division One with an end-to-end affair ending with honours even at two all. A defensive error let in new signing Tom Gosling to put the hosts ahead. Week equalised through Jimmy Shanks after a mix up in the home defence, and then took the lead from a long range Rob Pearce shot that was fumbled in by the keeper. Altarnun were not to be denied and Gosling scored his second to secure a point.

St.Dominick have a complete new team for this season after last years side moved to Millbrook. A few older heads are mixed in with a number of young players taking their first step into men’s football and they played a really good football as they put their game with Maker with Rame out of reach by half time. The second half saw them play more on the counter, but they still enjoyed a fine 4-1 win. Steve Cottingham, Scott Coombe, Stephen Paull and Jack Pollard scored for St.Dominick with Ricky Washburn getting the visitors consolation.

Looe Town opened in style with a 5-1 win at Gunnislake. They have made good signings in the close season and one of them Rob Spencer scored a brace. Martin Ayres, Matt Barton and Luke Lane completed the Looe tally with Darren Benfield scoring the home consolation.

Godolphin Atlantic won two nil at Biscovey with Jamie Hayton and Ben Currah on target.

Liam Jones scored a hat trick as Pelynt won four nil at St.Dennis.

Newly promoted North Petherwin had a hard baptism into Division Two football, but prevailed to beat Boscastle 3-2. In truth both sides were a little rusty and needed the run out. Joe Reeve, Callum Reeve and Ryan Julian scored for Petherwin with Dean Favreau getting both Boscastle goals.

St.Breward came off the field from their home clash with Padstow United wondering how they had achieved a 3-2 victory as they were under the cosh for long periods. St.Breward were being outplayed when Tom Hull gave the visitors the lead, but a series of missed chances let the hosts off the hook. St.Breward were awarded a free kick and a well-struck kick from Wayne Davey levelled the scores. This raised the spirit of the home side and two minutes later Martin Jago put them in front. The second half was a repeat of the first with Padstow in control but not able to find the net. The game was held up for twenty minutes for treatment to Padstow’s Rob Elliott and not long after restarting Ollie Mitchell scored the host’s third. Tom Wood did eventually pull another goal back, but wasteful shooting and a fine midfield display by St.Breward’s Paul Dowson denied them.

Sticker got their season off to a winning start with a narrow 2-1 win over Queens Rangers. The home side made the best possible start with an opening goal after five minutes: Mark Carter cutting in from the left and planting a good shot wide of the keeper. Although Sticker were creating and missing chances it was Queens who equalised. Ben Hawken cut in from the left wing and hit a superb cross come shot, which beat the home keeper all ends up. Sticker restored the lead when a James Edens corner curled straight into the net. Queens came more into the game in the second half, but the home defence held firm to deny the visitors an equaliser.

Premier Sixes made a promising start with a five nil defeat of AFC Bodmin. Two up at the break from Neil Currah and Josh Mitchell, only the crossbar and two good saves denied them further goals. Bodmin came more into the game in the second half, but Tom Currah and a Karl Olander brace, one from the spot, gave Sixes a score-line that they warranted by their performance.

Sam Leaney scored all three goals as Foxhole scored a good three nil win at Gerrans & St.Mawes United.

With both sides not a full strength Lostwithiel beat Lanreath 4-0. Lanreath put through their own net for the only goal of the first half. A Kai Stone header doubled the home advantage with Steve Rushton and Jordan Cook adding further goals.

Welcome Inn who were formerly Mount Charles won 5-1 at Roche in Division Three. Jamie Benjamin, Andy Julian, Nathan McGall, Karl Orchard and Adrian White all scored a brace apiece for the visitors with Craig Tamblyn scoring the Roche consolation.

Newly promoted Stoke Climsland made the long journey to Tregony and returned with a 2-1 win. Barry and Rob Cleveland scored their goals with Chris Kilbey replying.

Holywell/Cubert Athletic travelled to Lanivet with bare bones but came away with a fine three nil win. Simon Holmes scored a brace with Tom Heayel completing their scoring.

Camelford and St.Minver drew three apiece. George Hughes, Dan Piper and Matt Smith scored for the hosts with Jason Northcott, Steve Wooton and Paul Dingle replying.

The spoils were shared at Callington with the hosts Will Smith trading goals with Dave Barrett of Delabole United.

Tintagel and Lifton shared six goals in their opening Division Four fixture of the season. Garion Clark took the honours with a hat trick for the visitors while Martyn Cockcroft hit a brace in reply for Tintagel. The hosts other game came from Charlie Wilson.

North Hill opened in style beating St.Teath 8-2. James Bloomfield and Chris Rockell scored a brace apiece with Talisker Donahue, James Wilson, Dan Hamblen and Chris Grose completing their tally. Dan Edwards replied with a brace for St.Teath.

Mevagissey reserves won their derby game at Gorran two nil with Dan Brady and Trevor James finding the net.

Wadebridge Town were held one all at home by St.Neot with Richard Dunstan scoring the home goal.

Division Five leaders Southgate Seniors dropped their first points being held one all at home by North Petherwin reserves. Darren Chapman scored the home goal with Barry Rutherford replying.

Newcomers Tregrehan Mills take over at the top after a Diogo Reis hat trick helped them to a 4-1 defeat of Altarnun reserves. Tom Adams scored the other home goal with Ryan Cook claiming the Altarnun consolation.

St.Merryn beat St.Columb Major reserves three nil with Josh Dark, Kelvin Hayes and Danny Madigan scoring a goal apiece.

St.Minver reserves on their return to the league defeated St.Newlyn East reserves 3-1. Ben Cross scored a brace with Shaun Cunningham adding a further goal.

Duke of Cornwall played poorly in the first half at Pelynt reserves trailing three nil at half time. A good second half fight back just saw them come up short as they went down 3-2.

Probus 4-0 Lamerton

The game was even for the first 30 minutes until Lamerton pressed the self destruct button again, the probus keeper could have had the afternoon off as Lamerton didnt even test him except catching practise on crosses. disapointing afternoon again.

Just hope Lamerton start finding the net or they will be in a relagation battle in the early stages of the season.

Big Ern out, farewell goodbye and good night

Prem sixes 5-0 Afc Bodmin

Well played to p6's today, definatly good value for their win, and as previously said but for the crossbar and post it could have been more! Taking nothing at all away from p6's but Bodmin were awful today, first league game we've lost since October and we did it in style!! Good luck to p6's for the rest of the season, a good bunch.

St. Merryn 3-0 St. Columb Major reserves

St. Columb's reserve team returned to Duchy football with a challenging away fixture at St. Merryn, with the home side taking all three points despite a much improved second half performance from the visitors. St. Merryn took the game to their opponents in the opening quarter of an hour without troubling the visiting defence; Major were limited to sporadic counter attacks and could not find their way through despite Jamie Tipton emerging as the stand out player. The home side enjoyed greater possession with most of their football emerging from the right flank, however, Major goalkeeper Elliot Clarke was in fine form and denied the hosts with a string of fine saves until defender Craig Hayes was harshly punished for handball, gifting St. Merryn the opportunity to take the lead. Josh Dark duly obliged by sending Clarke the wrong way from the spot.

Major continued in their attempts to carve out an equaliser and suffered a blow moments before half time when the loose ball broke to St. Merryn defender Kelvin Hayes who took aim from thirty yards with an unstoppable shot that dipped just under the crossbar - a possible contender for goal of the season from the most unlikely of sources.

A half time change appeared to give the visitors a boost and when substitute Michael Rabone was crudely taken down in the box by last defender Hayes early in the second half, all eyes were on the referee who waved play on with another important decision. In amongst the controversy Major defender Paul Drinkwater talked himself into a spot of bother and the game quickly deteriorated as both sides became embroiled in petty disputes with some poor challenges. The visitors almost capitalised when a loose ball dropped to Paul Stansfield who lifted a curling shot agonisingly wide of the far post and Major could not find the breakthrough that their pressure deserved. There was still time for St. Merryn defender Richard Hughes to spark further controversy with bizarre challenge on Tipton and when Major pushed forward seeking a consolation, a fine cross was headed home by Danny Madigan from close range.

Man of the match - Jamie Tipton

Welcome Fc 5 Roche Res 1

The game being played on the 1st team pitch which was looking really good started well for Welcome scoring direct from a free kick by Andy Julian which everyone missed coming into the box. The 2nd coming from Karl Orchard who came onto a great through ball and he lobbed the out rushing goalkeeper. Andy Julian then handballed the ball in the box resulting in Craig Tamblyn slotting it away. Adrian White then scored the 3rd from a great cross from Karl Orchard, Half time came and Roche came back into the game after making some subsitutions but were getting caught with the ball over the top which resulted in Adrian White playing in Nathan Mcgall to get his goal before coming off. Jamie Benjamin who came on for Nathan scored the 5th with his 1st touch from another great ball from Gary Dunphy.

Welcome Inn - Man of the Match - Karl Orchard
