Duchy Five

St Columb Res.2-1 tregrehan mills

Understrenght St Columb came out on top of this top of the table clash. Tregrehan Mills top of the division before today , took an early lead when catching the Major defence napping and scored with a well placed finish to the keepers left.

St Columb still in the changing rooms, started to put their mark on the game, when Ryan Worrall scored a well taken goal.

Outside the eighteen yard box, Worrall noticed the keeper slightly off his line and put his cool finish into the top right and gave the keeper no chance.

With St Columb taking control of the game, a bizarre incident occurred in the visitors area.

A Tregrehan defender picked up the ball, expecting the referee to blow for a free kick.

No free kick was awarded to the visitors, but a penalty to the home team was.

Luke Worrall stepped up, to score his 2nd goal of the season and put Major 2-1 in front.

Luke wasted a good opportunity to further increase St Columb's lead, when put in on goal by a cute Tipton pass.

Tregrehan mills raised their game in the 2nd period and with St Columb really unsettled, the visitors must have felt really disappointed as they also missed a easy opportunity to level the score.

Tregrehan continued to take the game to the hosts, but didn't trouble the home keeper.

With time running out, the visitors continued to press but just run out of time and St Columb taking the three points.

M.o.m Casey Laity for his hard work and helping his team to victory with an injury picked up early in the match.

Duchy 3

Lanivet 1 Welcome Inn 3

After another changed squad with players unavailable. Welcome started to play some really nice passing football which had Lanivet chasing shadows. After good work by Jemba he was clipped in the box for Tom Pickering to put away the penalty. Then Neil White who started his 1st game put them 2 0 ahead with a smart drive into the top of the net. 2 0 at half time we knew Lanivet would have a good go early on which started to worry Welcome. Keith white who played his 1st game this season went off with a slight knock was replaced by Gary Dunphy back from Vegas. Mike Browne who was having another solid game started to look tired so was replaced by Roary Lewis. Lanivet finally got their 1st goal of the season with a great run through the middle and smashed into the goal. Welcome started to play sloppy passes and were getting caught out of positions but smart play by Nathan and Nigel Hancock who crossed for Tom Pickering to head in his 2nd goal of the game.

Welcome Inn Man of the Match - Carl Webster tireless running from him again.

Padstow 13 - 1 Premier Sixes

No typo they were good we were the worst ever. I counted we had 4 shots all on target during the game they had about 15 and 13 went in so they definately made up for all their efforts that didn't go in in their first match versus St Breward. It was 3-1 at halftime and despite a bright start numerous defensive howlers saw them quickly kill off the game. That was the worst 90 minutes of football I have ever been involved in. The only plus point is that we were missing alot of players so things definately won't get worse (I had to play in nets and 3 of the back 4 were all away, Olander is injured, Craig Harvey and Matty Marsland were working). Padstow United are some team though.

JJ Jones Duchy Football League from Michael Newcombe

St.Merryn caused an upset in a first round Bodmin Sports Trophies League Cup tie by toppling previously unbeaten St.Stephen from two divisions higher 5-3. An entertaining and sporting contest saw the visitors Matt Spry hit a hat trick, but it was the home team that progressed with goals from Josh Dark, Danny O’Flynn, Connor Wilden and a Kevin Allen brace.

There was also an upset in the other tie of the day where Division Five Veryan won 4-2 at Lifton after extra time. The game had closed at two all at ninety minutes.

A Martin Davy hat trick sunk reigning Premier Division Champions Fowey United as Mevagissey won 3-1. The visitors took the lead on the half hour after a beautifully flighted corner was headed in by Mark Smith. Mevagissey hit back when a Chris Dingle throw-in found Davy and he back headed into the goal. The same two combined for the second with Dingle’s corner being headed home by Davy. The hat trick goal settled the game and Fowey were shortly after reduced to ten men by a dismissal, which put the result out of doubt.

Bodmin Saints opened their account for the season with a 6-2 win over St.Mawgan. The game was evenly poised at two all when the home keeper made a terrific save and his team pushed on from there to complete a fine win. Dave Crawford and man-of-the-match Ryan Butler scored a brace apiece with Matt Doney and Simon Harper completing the home scoring. Shaun German was also in inspired form for the home side.

Probus move up to second place after a Ross Vicary hat trick gave them a comfortable three nil win at St.Cleer.

Lamerton and St.Columb Major fought out a two all draw. Paul Breyley and Richard Searle scored for Lamerton with Jamie Seery and Matt Jones replying.

St.Newlyn East drop to the bottom after a 5-1 home defeat by Saltash United. Chris Ballett scored the home goal.

Pelynt bounced back from a bad home defeat last week to win their Division One match at St.Dominick 4-0. The score-line rather flattered the visitors although they were deserved winners and their clinical play when the home defence made mistakes was the deciding factor. Liam Jones scored a brace with Ali Carter and Tom Whitebrook completing the scoring, but three of those goals were gifted by home errors.

Pensilva won 4-2 at Biscovey despite being dismissed to nine men by the end of the game. The first half was evenly fought with Marc Tuck giving the visitor’s a twenty-fifth minute lead. The game ebbed and flowed with Martyn Jones equalising just before the break. Jack Podmore restored the visitor’s lead with a fine volley at the back post, but with Biscovey pushing forward looking for an equaliser a home player was held back in the box and Biscovey were awarded a penalty and Pensilva suffered their first dismissal. Nick Isbell stroked home the leveller from the spot. Biscovey lost a little discipline searching for the winner and fell behind again when their keeper missed a punch and Podmore punished them with a goal. Three minutes from time Podmore’s good day was ruined, as he became the second visitor to be sent off, a little harshly this time. Biscovey pushed for the equaliser, but were caught on the break in the eighty-ninth minute and Jon Filbey put the result out of reach.

St.Dennis and Looe Town shared four goals. St.Dennis scored through Paul Rowe and an own goal with Looe replying with strikes from Matt Barton and Robbie Spencer.

Grampound have had a disappointing start in the league so will be delighted to pick up their first points after a stunning five nil victory at Week St.Mary. Shane weeks scored a brace with Peter Thomas, Lee Budge and Martin Lloyd completing the rout.

Colin Wilson is enjoying his football at Polperro and he went to twelve goals for the season after his hat trick sunk Gunnislake in a 3-2 win, Matt Avery and Darren Benfield replied for the visitors.

Maker with Rame remain on the bottom after losing 2-1 at home to Godolphin Atlantic. Zak Rosen scored the home goal.

North Petherwin take over joint top of Division Two with two other sides after a 2-1 success at St.Breward. They took the lead after a spell of good football with Joe Reeve supplying the finish. St.Breward hit back and were awarded a penalty, which Ben Jarram converted to take them into the break on level terms. The second half flowed with both sides looking threatening, but Andy Penn secured the points for the visitor’s with a goal fifteen minutes from the end.

A great performance from the home side saw Padstow United destroy Premier Sixes 13-1. Leading 3-1 at half time through goals from Kyle Tippett (2) and Jon Murt with a goal in reply for 6s from Martin Probert, Padstow dominated the first half as the score line suggests with both teams trying to play football on a good surface. 6s came out at the second half and could have pulled a couple back had it not been for some good defending from Jack Charles and Jason Olivey. Padstow then scored three quick goals with Murt, one an unstoppable shot from 15 yards and Tippett completing their hat tricks. The home side were now in complete control with further goals coming from Richie McOwen Sean Blows (2) and Russell McOwen before Tippett grabbed his fourth and Murt adding two more to complete the scoring. 6s kept playing and never gave up to their credit. Padstow go joint top, but take the summit on goal difference after this staggering win.

Foxhole Stars are joint top with North Petherwin after a 3-1 win at Queens Rangers. Tom Grylls, Jamie Robinson and Tommy Hicks scored their goals with Rob Hambly getting the home consolation.

Andy Seymour and Mike Horne scored a brace apiece in AFC Bodmin’s big 5-1 win at Lanreath. Adam Brown completed the away scoring with Dan Collings getting the Lanreath consolation.

A second win in successive weeks for Gerrans & St.Mawes United as they beat Boscastle 2-1. Chris Thomas and Glyn Hitchings scored for Gerrans with Martin Seldon replying.

St.Minver won the big game at the top of Division Three and leapfrog Stoke Climsland to the top after a 3-1 success. The home keeper saved a penalty in the first half and the game was evenly balanced at one all with just seven minutes remaining. Ryan Allen had scored the goal to keep Stoke in the contest, but eventually St.Minver broke their rivals down and went ahead late in the game. A cracking shot for the third sealed the victory.

Delabole conceded a couple of late goals, but overall were good value for a 5-3 win over Calstock reserves. Mac Irwin and Ashley Morris scored a brace apiece for the hosts with Aaron Arnold adding a superb goal of his own. Calstock replied through Chris Bruton, Barry Hemmett and an own goal.

Simon Holmes scored four goals as Holywell/Cubert Athletic won 6-2 at Callington Town. Tom Hargreaves and James Nettleton completed the visitor’s tally with Andy Maddock and Colin Davey hitting back for the hosts.

Tregony had a comfortable four nil win over Camelford. Aaron Davey scored a brace with Kieran Davey and Andy Barnes also finding the target.

Lanivet Inn has virtually had to rebuild their team after a disappointing start to the season, but they hope to be more competitive in future weeks. A 3-1 home defeat by Welcome Inn was not a disaster as they take the hard climb back. New signing Sam Goodswen scored for Lanivet, their first goal of the new campaign, but Welcome take the points with a Tom Pickering brace and a Neil White goal.

Roche suffered a heavy 4-1 home loss to LC Phoenix with Chris Coad scoring the home goal.

Tintagel maintained their unbeaten start in Division Four with a 5-3 defeat of St.Teath with Shaun Keeble striking a hat trick. Martyn Cockcroft and Ryan Holland completed the home total. St.Teath who remain bottom replied with a brace from Dan Edwards and a Dan Skinner goal.

St.Neot won 4-2 at Pensilva reserves. Dan Chapman put the visitor’s ahead with Adam Gregory scoring the first of a hat trick before half time to double the lead. Gregory increased the visitor’s advantage after the restart before Aaron Lane came off the bench to pull one back. Gregory completed his hat trick to put St.Neot out of sight, but Ian Littlewood had the final say for the home team with their second goal.

Grampound reserves and Mevagissey reserves fought out a goalless stalemate. Mevagissey had more possession in the first half, but the home side defended well and stopped any real chances being created. Grampound were more in the game after the break with Daley McErlain being denied. Mevagissey were most threatening from set pieces and they forced Ryan Henderson into a fine save from one of those.

Jason Ridgment scored a hat trick as North Hill won 5-2 at Gunnislake reserves. Steve Olver and Chris Grose added the other away goals with Steve Cribb and Connor Cooper replying.

Wadebridge won a closely fought game with St.Cleer reserves 4-3. Chris Spiller, Francis Riddle, Ryan Brown and Aaron White were the home marksmen.

Torpoint Comrades 100 per cent start was ended by a three all home draw with Gorran. Curtis Evans, Greg Pearce and an own goal for the hosts.

North Petherwin reserves continued their good start in Division Five with a 4-1 defeat of Boscastle reserves with Sam Stockdale scoring a brace. Adie Heal and Paul Penny were the other home scorer’s with Neville Turner getting the visitor’s consolation.

Tregrehan Mills started brightly at St.Columb Major reserves with Diogo Reis giving them an early lead with a well-placed shot. St.Columb battled back in the game and gained some ascendancy with Ryan Worrall equalising from a twenty-five yard shot. The host’s were then awarded a fortunate penalty, which Luke Worrall put away to give them the lead. Tregrehan dominated the second half, but saw a shot cleared off the line and they missed two one on one chances as Major held out for a 2-1 victory.

James Shead scored a hat trick and Nathan Smallman added a brace in Pelynt reserves emphatic seven-goal defeat of St.Newlyn East reserves. Damian Mutton and Chris Reade completed the scoring.

Altarnun reserves recorded their first win since their return to the league with two latish goals giving them a 3-1 win at St.Minver reserves. Jack Whirehouse scored a brace with Jimmy Miles getting the other visiting goal and Shaun Cunningham claiming the home consolation.

Southgate were 3-1 winners over St.Mawgan reserves. Tom Wyman, Dan Gregory and Jamie Holden scored for Southgate with Darren Allum getting the St.Mawgan consolation goal.

Hard fought win for Foxhole today against a determined Queens Rangers. Queens started the better but didnt make the most of their early possession. Foxhole improved and came more into the game and it was with good pass and move football that resulted in Tom Grylls scoring from an angle. Queens again had plenty of possession, but not really creating much in the way of a goal threat, apart from the odd long range shot or attempts from out wide. Foxhole again playing some nice passing football, sent Tom Grylls down the left crossing for Jamie Robinson to score, again from an angle.

Second half saw Queens come out with a more determined attitude and started causing a few problems. They got a reward with a goal from a corner..... a soft goal for Foxhole to conceed but gave Queens a lift, but on a positive note, also gave Foxhole the kick up the bum they probably needed. With Queens now pushing for an equaliser,they we're caught out in midfield with Richard Ralph winning the ball and spraying a beautiful right footed pass, disecting the Queens defence, allowing Tommy Hicks to beat the advancing goalkeeper with a delightfully executed dinked finish.

A good, hard fought win for Foxhole today with Richard Thompson our man of the match, closely followed by the rest of the team!!

Its been nice in recent weeks to praise the match officials.........sadly today that wont happen!! A baffling performance all round from the man in the middle. Players want consistancy, fairness and an official who is there to uphold the rules. The FA ask for respect......but surely that goes both ways doesnt it????

Roche 1 LC Phoenix 4

Phoenix got their season back on track with a comprehensive defeat of Roche. Skipper Nathan Cox gave Phoenix the lead with a converted penalty, then Matt Brookes tucked in a neat header from Jon Bye's accurate cross. Roche pulled back one back from a well taken free kick but they never looked like threatening beyond that.

Phoenix were totally dominant in the second half and could easily have made double figures; Cox grabbed another from long range and Harry Marsh rounded the keeper. At times a tetchy affair, credit has to go to Anita, the ref, for showing common sense and control in a game where tackles and tempers where common.

The White Hart Hotel Man of the Match Award: Nathan Cox; a welcome return to form for the Phoenix captain, with a solid, authoritative performance.

Gunnislake took the game to table toppers Polperro and can feel an injustice at coming away losing to the odd goal in five.

One can only feel that when Gunnislake cut out a few individual mistakes and actually have a bit of luck then the results will start to come.

The opening 20 minutes saw the two sides evenly matched though Darren Benfield had his early effort saved at the near post and Harry Southcott headed just over.

Polperro took the lead after an error let Colin “Sarge” Wilson in for the first of his 3 goals.

Matt Avery levelled for the away team who then went ahead through Benfield.

Joe Pulley at the heart of Gunnislake’s defence retired through injury early in the second half and although Gunnislake were seemingly on top the home side showed their class to draw level. Mike King hit the post for Gunnislake but Polperro snatched the winner in off the post when Gunnislake failed to clear their lines.

A fair reflection of the game A.Brown85, I think both sides played some good football but in spells rather than prolonged periods. I thought we were hard done by being behind at the interval but our 2nd half performances this season have defined us.

Gunnislake have some good foundations to build on, a nice bunch of lads and it was good to see a game without any bad tackles or petulance by the players.

Must say the man in the middle had a fantastic game too.

Good luck for the rest of the season.
