Troon 6 Trevenson 0 (Cook 20, 44, 75; Oliver 38, 55 pen; B. Phillips 66)

Troon continued their excellent start to the season with a comfortable victory over Trevenson. Troon dominated possession from kick off with Jody Marles and Phil James controlling the game from the middle of the park and strikers Dan Oliver and Graham Cook looking lively. Oliver's strike from the edge of the box crashed against the post and Cook fired wide after good interplay between the Phillips brothers and Oliver as it looked only a matter of time before Troon took the lead. On 20 minutes the goal eventually came when James won a header in midfield and Cook lobbed the advancing Bartlam in the Trevenson goal. Troon continued to create chances without really threatening Bartlam with Marles having his usual attempt to clear the hedge with a strike from range.

Troon then went off the boil and tried to force the play and had to rely on some good defending from Ashley Wills and Alastair Woodman at the back to ensure they kept their advantage. Troon raised their game before half time grabbing 2 excellent goals. Firstly superb interplay between Oliver and brothers Jason and Bradley Phillips resulted in Bartlam making a good save from the younger Phllips brothers strike and Oliver was on hand to stab home the loose ball. Just before the half time interval Cook's curler from range flew into the top corner for a goal of the season contender. Marles made a couple of chances at the break, resting himself and Cambodian international Scott Smeeth.

Troon continued to force the pace at the start of the second half and on 55 minutes Jules Woodman was upended in the area and Oliver converted the spot kick to bag his 7th goal in 3 games. Ashley Wills then had an argument with Trevenson's Razza over who's handbag was nicer; Ash's Hermes: Matte Crocodile Birkin Bag or Razza's Louis Vuitton: Raindrop Besace number. Trevenson won a few freekicks on the edge of the Troon area without severely testing Martin in goal.

Josh Reynolds missed a couple of good chances and Bradley Phillips fired over from close range as chances were created and spurned. Jules Woodman's piledriver from range also crashed against the post with the keeper rooted. On 66 minutes Bradley Phillips made it 5-0 after great work from brother Jason. Haydn Wise's hard but fair tackle helped to set up Cook for his hat-trick on 70 minutes before he left the pitch to standing ovation. Cook did reveal on twitter after the game that he has a clause in his contract that will allow him to leave on a free transfer should he fail to win any silverware this season.

Botswana international Greg (no longer Manley) Wells came on to a mixed reception and showed plenty of commitment and galantly played on after suffering damage to an eye lash when an opposition players boot came within 5 yards of his head. There was still time for Franco Lovelock to get booked after some abuse aimed at the referee.

Another good win for Troon although tougher tests will be ahead this season; but a good start with 17 scored and only 1 conceded in the 3 games played.

MPad 5-6 Praze

Another goal bonanza at Dracaena Park. Neither team ever took more than a 1 goal lead with MPad coming from behind 4 times to take a late lead until Praze scored 2 more to seal the points.

Who needs the premier league when all the goal action is on show in the West Cornwall Sunday league!!
