Knockout Cup

Grampound 0-2 Torpoint Athletic

Grampound never managed to get out of second gear today and were disappointed with their overall performance. Apart from a couple of good moves in the first half and a couple of shots, one that rattled the bar from Lee Budge, did not give their Premier Division opponents too much to think about. Two goals from Lewis Pacey within a couple of minutes of each other, midway through the second half, settled the tie. Once they went behind, Grampound found it very hard to create very much an Torpoint were worthy winners.

Major Reserves 3 - 0 St. Mawgan Reserves

St. Columb Major enjoyed a satisfying three goal victory over local rivals St. Mawgan after a strong opening to the game ultimately proved to be the difference.

Major were quickest out of the blocks and were unfortunate not to go ahead in the opening minutes when Luke Worrell's ambitious chip from outside the area sailed marginally over the crossbar with the visiting goalkeeper stranded. However, it wasn't long before Major were in front; good work on the right from Jamie Tipton caught the St. Mawgan defence out of shape and although Worrell could not quite force the ball home from close range, the loose ball fell to Casey Laity to sweep into the empty net. It wasn't long until Major had doubled their advantage; Paul Drinkwater's persistence resulted in a throw-in that Tipton launched into the box and an inexplicable push in the back resulted in a penalty that Worrell swept home with confidence.

Major were enjoying the majority of possession and Simon Mitchell was unfortunate not to add a third when he allowed the ball to run across him, driving a fine strike that cannoned off the crossbar, up into the air and into the grateful hands of the goalkeeper. Drinkwater could have also added a third but was unable to get a clean connection with hismheader after a fine cross from Worrell left the goal at his mercy. Despite forcing a couple of late corners, Michael Rabone, Major's deputising goalkeeper, was largely untroubled due to some resilient defending from a very solid looking back four.

St. Mawgan made a bright start to the second half but could only muster a couple of long range strikes that Rabone was equal to and despite having less possession than the visitors, Major added an important third goal when Tipton's pass found Tom Janye, who added his second goal in consecutive games, slotting home at the near post.

Major continued to press and enjoyed a great deal of possession in the second half; a series of long range strikes from John Middleditch, Simon Mitchell and Craig Hayes went agonisingly wide of the target as the hosts dominated the latter stages. The match official was required to intervene when a poor challenge from Tipton resulted in a petulant kick from his opponent and the game was temporarily halted moments later when the referee was on the receiving end of a wayward pass from Hayes that was admirably shaken off, bringing a competitive game to a conclusion.

Major were very happy to have thrwarted the attacking threat of their rivals and were delighted to take three points after a workmanlike performance.

JJ Jones Duchy Football League from Michael Newcombe

The first cup action of the new Duchy season saw Torpoint Athletic win 2-0 at Grampound in the first round of the KMD Developments Knock Out Cup. The home side struggled to get out of second gear all game, but they were a little unlucky in the first half when Lee Budge hit the bar. Lewis Pacey scored twice in two minutes midway through the second half to put Torpoint through to the next round and the game rather petered out after these goals.

There was also one game in the first round of the Bodmin Sport Trophies League Cup where Division Five Southgate Seniors stunned Division Three Lanivet Inn 7-0. Rob Oldaker hit a hat trick with Darren Chapman adding a brace. Tom Wyman and Dan Gregory completed the rout.

Mevagissey won an evenly fought Premier Division game with Probus two nil. Miles Gardner gave them the lead on the half hour with a scrambled goal with Chris Dingle hitting a stunning volley two minutes later, which ended the scoring.

St.Cleer remain undefeated after a three nil win over Lamerton. The visitors started the brighter side putting the hosts under the cosh. St.Cleer eventually got a foothold and came back strongly with Scott Corson scoring two first half goals. Corson completed his hat trick in the second half to confirm the points.

Tony Jane scored a brace as Saltash United won three nil at Calstock. Lee Hawkins completed the scoring.

Leaders AFC St.Austell won 6-2 at St.Mawgan. Darren Roose scored the home goals.

Fowey United won two nil at St.Newlyn East, and St.Columb Major won 4-2 at Bodmin Saints, but no details have been forwarded on these games.

St.Dominick have made an excellent start to the season in Division One and picked up a third win with a lone goal win at Altarnun. St.Dominick pushed the hosts back from the start although Altarnun missed an open goal with the keeper stranded on the floor. Altarnun had another chance to take the lead when awarded a penalty for handball. Danny Moore stepped up, but saw a second penalty saved in successive matches. The save was spectacular by Adam Fuller who followed it up by blocking two further efforts from the initial save. The visitor’s winning goal came five minutes from the end when a good corner was headed home by Steve Bishop to give St.Dominick a deserved victory.

Biscovey hit five against St.Dennis without reply. The first half was rather scrappy with Martyn Jones opening the scoring right on the forty-fifth minute. Jones added a second five minutes after the break and completed his hat trick in the sixty-fifth minute. Biscovey were now dominant and forced Neil Dudley into conceding an own goal. Nick Isbell came off the bench to score the fifth five minutes from time.

Early season high flyers Godolphin Atlantic and Polperro shared the spoils from a two all draw. Ben Colquhoun and Steve Knowles scored for Godolphin with Colin Wilson getting a brace in reply.

Pelynt won their derby with Looe Town 4-0. Liam Jones scored a brace with Ali Carter and Tom Whitebrook also on target.

A first win for Gunnislake, and in some style as they beat Week St.Mary 7-3. Kieren Jasper and Scott Paskins scored a brace apiece with Dean Southcott, Darren Benfield and Mike King completing the host’s tally. Henry Mann replied with a brace and Steve Short scored once for Week.

North Petherwin won a fantastic game in Division Two beating Premier Sixes 5-2. Sixes made the long trip to the north of the county with a heavily decimated team. Sixes took the lead early in the first half through a Karl Olander penalty. North Petherwin reversed the lead with two goals in the final 10 minutes of the half. Sixes didn’t start the second half well and found themselves 5-1 down within the opening 20 minutes of the half. They then lost the influential Olander to injury. A spirited effort in the last 10 minutes was rewarded with Damo Cottam heading in a late consolation.Joe Reeve scored a brace for Petherwin with Andy Penn and Alex Emmanuel-Jones also hitting the target. Their final goal came from Simon Oliver who’s favourite saying is “he’s got a goal in him today”, and finally he did.

St.Breward conceded a two goal lead to be held to a two all draw by Lanreath. Dan Mountain gave the hosts a first half lead in a well fought out game of good football. An early Wayne Davey goal in the second half looked to have sealed the points for St.Breward, but Lanreath were awarded a penalty, which James Barrett converted and this lifted their spirits. With time running out Matt Julian scored a late equaliser.

Padstow United defeated Foxhole 5-3, but the result does not reflect the game at all. Foxhole went three up in the first twenty minutes through goals from Calum Stuart (2) and Sam Leaney. Poor defending from the home side gifted two of the goals. Padstow looked far from their normal selves but got back into the game when Paul Banks tapped home from a Jon Murt knock down, and then Simon Northcott kept the home sides hopes alive with a fine save one minute before the break. Padstow came out for the second half looking a different side and a ten-minute hat trick from Jon Murt put them in front. His third a stunning strike which gave the keeper no chance. Simon press made sure of the points ten minutes from time with a simple tap in.

Lostwithiel remain on top after beating Boscastle two nil. Jordan Cook headed them ahead with player-manager Graham rule scoring the second from an acute angle.

Gerrans & St.Mawes United picked up their first point of the season with a well-deserved draw against Sticker. The home side were the first to show and after ten minutes a snap shot from Tommy Whiles opened the scoring. The visitor’s came close on a number of occasions, but found ball control difficult playing down the slope. With half time approaching a speculative lob from Aaron Scott sailed over the goalkeeper and into the net for the equaliser. The second half threw up few scoring opportunities for either side.

Queens Rangers drew one all with AFC Bodmin. Matt Kistle of Queens traded goals with Dexter Reeves.

Division Three leaders LC Phoenix fell to a first defeat when beaten 2-1 at St.Stephen. The hosts were ahead inside the first minute. They robbed the ball back after the kick off and Dean Yelland made a good run down the right with Ross Dunn slotting in his cross with aplomb. Phoenix hit back strongly, but St.Stephen weathered the storm and came back in the match. Another good move down the right by Rodney Rickard fell to James Tilbury, who missed the initial chance, but he retrieved the ball and set Dunn up for his second. The host’s tired as the second half progressed as the visitors bossed the game and started to pose a few problems from crosses. With ten minutes to go a free kick was converted by Bradley Stokes and it was backs to the wall defending to hold on for their win.

Stoke Climsland kept their 100 percent record with Andy Morris scoring a brace and Josh Searle adding a further goal in their three nil defeat of Welcome Inn.

Roche and Calstock reserves picked up their first points of the season after sharing eight goals. Chris Coad scored a brace for Roche with Andy Craddock and Craig Tamblyn adding further goals. Barry Hemmett and Alex Mortimore scored a brace apiece in reply.

Camelford defeated Callington Town 3-1 with John Starkey, Dan Piper and Joel Hutchens all finding the target. Jordan Swinney replied for Callington.

Pensilva reserves picked up their first points of the season in Division Four by beating Gunnislake reserves 4-2. Martin Putt opened the scoring with Karl Gross scoring a second from close in. Jack Podmore added a brace to put the host’s in control, but Wayne Stephens pulled one back for Gunnislake before the break. Pensilva didn’t have the same penetration in the second half and conceded a second goal to Jay Vickers.

Talisker Donahue scored a hat trick in North Hill’s four nil defeat of St.Cleer reserves. Chris Rockell completed the scoring.

Tintagel have responded well to relegation and remain undefeated after beating Grampound reserves 3-2. Shaun Keeble scored a brace with Martyn Cockcroft completing the host’s total. Steve Moorcroft scored a brace in reply.

Dave Palmer hit a hat trick and Greg Pearce a brace as Torpoint Comrades hit St.Neot for seven without reply. Jake Goodrum and Richard Gibson added the remaining goals.

Gorran opened their account for the season with two Jack Bray-Smith goals giving them victory over Wadebridge Town.

Veryan finally opened their season in Division Five and put in a spectacular performance as they beat Pelynt reserves 8-4. Veryan peppered the visitor’s goal in the opening fifteen minutes before breaking the deadlock, but Pelynt responded well and quickly drew level. Veryan were enjoying the majority of play and went into the break 3-1 up. The second half continued in the same vein, but all credit to Pelynt who had a never say die attitude as they claimed their four goals. Bobby Lee Johns scored four goals for the hosts with Gary Wheildon, and Justin Trebilcock adding further goals. Pelynt put through their own net, but the goal of the game came from Simon Matthews, which capped a man of the match performance.

If it’s goals you want then Duke of Cornwall is the game to catch. They won their first game of the season with a 6-3 defeat of Altarnun reserves and the three games they have played have now featured 25 goals. Dean Dingle was in spectacular form netting four times with Mark Nagle and Dean Clemo completing their tally.

St.Merryn scored four, missed a host of other chances and managed to concede six as they threw away their home game with North Petherwin reserves. Sam Stockdale was another man to hit four goals for Petherwin with Dan Hancock and Aaron Lake completing their scoring. Ashley Rescorla, Kelvin Hayes, Josh Dark and Kevin Allen replied for St.Merryn.

St.Columb Major won a feisty derby with St.Mawgan reserves three nil. Casey Laity and a Luke Worrall penalty gave the hosts a two-goal first half lead. St.Mawgan had good chances to get back in the game after the break, but the only goal came from the host’s Tom Jayne who hit the keeper with a shot that then looped up over his head.

The Leaders Tregrehan Mills suffered a 4-2 home loss to St.Minver reserves. Dean Seville and Diogo Reis were the home scorer’s, but the visitor’s prevailed with an Olly Danning brace and goals from Matt Webster and Ben Cleave.

St Stephen 2 LC Phoenix 1

St Stephen thoroughly deserved the three points on desire alone as Phoenix crashed out of this Duchy 3 game. Two goals down in twenty minutes wasn't enough to shake the alumni team from their torpor, and St Stephen with a bit more luck and sharper shooting could have gone in at the break four or five goals to the good. A fightback of sorts occured in the second half, but Phoenix were blunt throughout the pitch and, despite a host of chances and possession, could only find the back of the net once: a fine header from Bradley Stokes to set hearts racing in the final 15 minutes of the game. Overall St Stephen ran out justified winners- their spirited backs- to- the- walls approach proving that reputation alone doesn't win you football matches. Phoenix need to sharpen up, and quick.

thought anita ref'd well at st columb major yesterday :)

Anita did ref the game well.

Although I thought we had at least 2 refs throughout. Barry Chuckle did his best all game to make the referees decisions for her.

St Mawgan spent most of the game trying to influence the referees decisions rather than concentrating on their own performance.

Game of two halves at Padstow....... 3-0 up and looking as though we couldve scored more, they got one back then their keeper saved a shot from myself ( how he got his fingertips to it is beyond me.... )

Second half was completely different!! Jon Murt was outstanding and fair play to Padstow, they came out and showed a willingness and desire to win, and did so comfortably in the end.

Im still scratching my head at our capitualation in the second half.

I will add that the game was marred slightly by comments made by at least one of the Padstow supporters, who I was informed was one of their suspended players. Threats of violence towards one of our young players and the abuse given to our assistant ref ( or lines person if youre old school ) was totally unacceptable, but credit again to Jon Murt for his words to the ref on this matter.

Have to agree with you Veteran Skipper. It was a game of 2 halves.

I thought we were awful in the first 25 minutes or so & you caught us out twice with the long ball but fair play to your boy who scored the first 2 took them well.

Our back four was all over the place for some reason?

We then gifted you a third, no idea what our left back was doing?

The Padstow players were told to play at a high tempo but obviously the instructions fell on deaf ears because we looked liked we had never played together before!

We did create a few chances during the latter stages of the first half, Murty hit the bar and we failed to hit the target on another couple of occasions.

We got a goal back just before the end of the half and then Northy in our goal made a great save to deny you a third.

We came out a different side for the second half, no cups were thrown either or hair dryers come to that matter!

We started to find our passing game and once we scored our second I had a feeling we would go on to win.

Murty was different class and his third was a stunning goal.

As for the incident just before halftime, I was so shocked by our display I'd gone for a cuppa to think about the half time team talk & the next thing I knew the ref was giving a stern lecture to a group of our spectators.

I immediately went back to see what was going on & Francis was enraged to say the least.

Not sure what was said or to who but rest assured it will be dealt with by the club.

As an ex ref i will not put up with any of my players abusing officials.

Only last week I gave one of my players a 1 game club suspension for having a go at the ref the previous week and all my players know that if they are cautioned for dissent they will miss 1 game.

I'm sure we have all said things against players & officials in the heat of the moment but it does not excuse it!

Good luck for the rest of the season.

Thank you New Forest.

Thankfully the referees intervention worked and there wasnt anymore 'comments '.

You guys have a good team there to be fair.

See you at our place :)

As Gunnislake Football Club Manager. I am the guy who fills the team sheet out, the very same person who picked the side yesterday.

I can confirm that only 1 senior player was used during the match. His name is Dean Southcott.

Dean has been struggling with injurys since the end of last season. Dean did not have a pre-season, I will repeat DID NOT have a pre season.

He has had 30 minutes of football since last season. Mr Southcott lives in the village and has loved playing for the club in the past.

Ian Southcott is his father who is manager of Tavistock 1st team. Dean suggested to his dad that maybe he needs minutes playing junior football.

I love hearing people moaning about ringers. whats the problem if they are coming back from injury? im sure St Dominick (duchy 1) side will use players, seeing as their 1st team are east cornwall.

Dean was only used for the 1st 60 minutes and was brought off, the scores were still close when i brought his younger brother Harry on.

Again i love the fact that Keithy87 thinks we had half if Tavistock ECPL side playing. I think Garf Ewing, Tim May & Mark Vernon (tavi managers) would have something to say about this!

This rumour is very very poor and i would have thought some people from St Dom would know better. I'm not saying the rumour started there but with players and managers being 'friends'/live in the same town(Saltash) they might have spoken to one another. Even you Keithy87, being a ex brother inlaw to my joint manager Darren O'Melia.

Last weeks game with St Dom was a shamble, we didnt play well with key players missing...But We EXCEPTED defeat when the final whistle blew.

But for keithy to acccuse the club of using loads of players is discusting. You do know that its £10 per player to be reinstated?? why would the club pay £60/70 to use players that dont play for the club. Dean was an exception as he is a local lad ETC.

I really hope this suject is dropped & for some people to grow up!

I feel hurt by these comments!

TomHall. Obviously you know dean very well, played at Tavistock, Gunnislake Plus others in the past, thanks for your input mate!

Lostwithiel 2-0 Boscastle (Duchy 2)

(Scorers:- Jordan Cook & Graham Rule)

Not a great performance from the home side today. Several absentee's meant a reshuffling of the pack and Kai Stone back between the sticks despite some good displays at centre back. Lostwithiel were fairly comfortable in the first half but quite wasteful in possession at times and took a slender lead into the break after Jordon Cook headed home from a superb cross. Boscastle had been largely quiet up til now but in the second half they came out fighting and put the home side under consistent pressure for the opening 20 mins and were unlucky not to have pulled level. Lostwithiel had started the second half very poorly and finally got a foot hold in the game after weathering the early storm. Chances started to come Lostwithiel's way and somehow they were denied a stonewall penalty after a player was chopped down in the box...I think everyone heard the clatter except the man in black!!! Nevertheless the home side finally got the cushion they wanted after player/manager Graham Rule chased down a ball that looked destined to go out and was able to cut in and convert from an acute angle. This knocked the stuffing out of the away side and Lostwithiel continued to press, however several chances to extend the lead were spurned and the lack of a striker in the side was definitely showing!! The match ended 2-0 and a fairly comfortable victory in the end but not exactly a vintage performance. Lostwithiel remain top of the league and looking forward to next weekend's top of the table clash against North Petherwin. Fairplay to Boscastle for a spirited performance and gracious in defeat...best of luck for the rest of the season.

. If you had ready post correctly then where does it state that I started this rumour ! I was just simply asking a question to find out if you did or not, this is an open forum where anyone can write what they want within reason, I overheard something so decided to ask the question,

Again i love the fact that Keithy87 thinks we had half if Tavistock ECPL side playing. I think Garf Ewing, Tim May & Mark Vernon (tavi managers) would have something to say about this!

This rumour is very very poor and i would have thought some people from St Dom would know better. I'm not saying the rumour started there but with players and managers being 'friends'/live in the same town(Saltash) they might have spoken to one another. Even you Keithy87, being a ex brother inlaw to my joint manager Darren O'Melia.

Last weeks game with St Dom was a shamble, we didnt play well with key players missing...But We EXCEPTED defeat when the final whistle blew.

But for keithy to acccuse the club of using loads of players is discusting. You do know that its £10 per player to be reinstated?? why would the club pay £60/70 to use players that dont play for the club. Dean was an exception as he is a local lad ETC.

I really hope this suject is dropped & for some people to grow up!

I feel hurt by these comments!

TomHall. Obviously you know dean very well, played at Tavistock, Gunnislake Plus others in the past, thanks for your input mate!

. If you had ready post correctly then where does it state that I started this rumour ! I was just simply asking a question to find out if you did or not, this is an open forum where anyone can write what they want within reason, I overheard something so decided to ask the question,

dug yourself a hole with something that dont concern you :)

Lostwithiel 2-0 Boscastle (Duchy 2)

(Scorers:- Jordan Cook & Graham Rule)

Not a great performance from the home side today. Several absentee's meant a reshuffling of the pack and Kai Stone back between the sticks despite some good displays at centre back. Lostwithiel were fairly comfortable in the first half but quite wasteful in possession at times and took a slender lead into the break after Jordon Cook headed home from a superb cross. Boscastle had been largely quiet up til now but in the second half they came out fighting and put the home side under consistent pressure for the opening 20 mins and were unlucky not to have pulled level. Lostwithiel had started the second half very poorly and finally got a foot hold in the game after weathering the early storm. Chances started to come Lostwithiel's way and somehow they were denied a stonewall penalty after a player was chopped down in the box...I think everyone heard the clatter except the man in black!!! Nevertheless the home side finally got the cushion they wanted after player/manager Graham Rule chased down a ball that looked destined to go out and was able to cut in and convert from an acute angle. This knocked the stuffing out of the away side and Lostwithiel continued to press, however several chances to extend the lead were spurned and the lack of a striker in the side was definitely showing!! The match ended 2-0 and a fairly comfortable victory in the end but not exactly a vintage performance. Lostwithiel remain top of the league and looking forward to next weekend's top of the table clash against North Petherwin. Fairplay to Boscastle for a spirited performance and gracious in defeat...best of luck for the rest of the season.

i didn't see this game but know that boscastle 1st have been short on players for the start of the the season with 5 or so out due to cricket but think this week coming most player are back so hopefully start picking up some points, we get same trouble every year for 1st 4 or so games .
