Major Reserves 1 - 0 St. Merryn

Olly Kernick's fine first half strike proved to be enough for St. Columb Major to take three points from local rivals St. Merryn following a fairly even encounter at The Recreation Ground.

With both sides forced into changes, Major were looking to avenge their opening day defeat and early signs indicated that the home side would enjoy the edge as Major looked to carve out an opening. Nigel Worrall offered opportunities to returning Major players Dan Ball and Dean Hall, reintroducing a back four of Hayes, Rabone, Brenton and Middleditch following the narrow defeat last week to Veryan. Major looked fairly comfortable until a long clearance was headed wide of the target by St. Merryn frontman Kevin Allen, with Major goalkeeper Eliot Clarke doing enough to put the former Major striker off. Major's fairly defensive 4-5-1 formation meant that chances for lone striker Luke Worrall would be few and far between, however, tidy work in the midfield from the returning Dean Hall resulted in a neat move that allowed Olly Kernick to slide an angled pass to Worrall who was unlucky to see his shot flash narrowly wide of the far post. With the exception of a couple of gentle free-kicks that dropped straight into his hands, Major 'keeper Clarke was generally untroubled.

After some reasonable pressure that included a couple of strikes from Ben Atherton that flew narrowly wide, Major looked to be lacking a cutting edge but a smart bit of work on the right resulted in a deep cross that found the hosts with three on one and Olly Kernick did the job on his own, neatly collecting the ball to tee up and despatch a fine strike from a narrow angle that flashed past the goalkeeper and into the back of the net for the opener. Both sides were finding the heavy conditions a challenge and a poor pass from Michael Rabone resulted in Allen being put through on goal, although his subsequent finish was dragged wide of the target when well placed to score. There was still time for a deep cross into the box to result in a collision between Allen and Clarke after a brave stop by the goalkeeper and Major went into the interval with a slender yet deserved lead.

The second half was much of the same; Major looked to seize opportunities to counter attack and at times found themselves defending a little bit too deep, inviting pressure from the visitors that invariably offered little threat to Clarke's goal. Major were doing enough to keep the game under a degree of control and should have added to the scoreline when Kernick's turn allowed room yet the resulting strike was swept over the crossbar. Major's defensive four were looking relatively comfortable with John Middleditch playing a key role, demonstrating great passion and desire to be first to every tackle. Yet Rabone almost gifted St. Merryn a way back into the match, giving the ball away with one quick pass finding Allen clean through on goal. Clarke narrowed the angle and Allen dithered to allow Middleditch to make a fine recovery to nick the ball away to safety as the St. Merryn striker failed to pull the trigger.

With time running our Major found themselves defending a series of set pieces but were resolute as they maintained their narrow advantage. Dean Hall continued to twist and turn his way out of trouble and it was only as a result of some wayward passing that Major did not exploit the gaps that were beginning to form. John Middleditch capped a fine display with a brave block from Allen as the game neared a conclusion and when Kernick took the ball into the corner, it looked like the game was over. Some indiscipline crept in as the visitors collected a couple of quick bookings, one for a crude trip on Hall and the other for contesting a narrow offside decision. There was still time for St. Merryn to force a late corner and the set piece summed up their afternoon as another poor deliver was swept clear by Middleditch and the hosts were satisfied to hear the final whistle concluding a challenging ninety minutes.

Man of the match - John Middleditch

Lamerton 0-0 Fowey

0-0 after 36 minutes when game postponed through the ref pulling hamstring... warm up needed on a cold day like today!

Feel sorry for the lads traveling up today for 36 minutes but it was out of our hands.

Hope the food and the open fire down the pub made up for it a little bit.

Duchy 5

Duke of Cornwall 5 St Newlyn East res 2

With the bare 11 players, many of which playing out of position, St Newlyn East gave Duke of Corwwall a real run for their money and many would say that the 5-2 scoreline may not be a true reflection of what was, for a lot of the game, a very closely fought battle.

The game couldn't have started worse for Newlyn as a defensive mix up handed Duke their first goal after less than 30 seconds of play. However the blues kept their heads held high and drew level soon after with an excellently taken volley by Adam Laker. The blues started to take control of the game after this with some fine passing football; Jack Thompson controlling the midfield and linking up well with Phil Rowe, Ben Taylor and Grant Revell. Duke of Cornwall limited Newlyns chances on goal very well however and scored a 2nd and added a third before half time. At the half time break, Newlyn considered themselves very unlucky to be 2 goals behind.

In the second half Duke's extra pace and height proved to be the biggest difference bewteen the sides. 20 minutes in and they scored a 4th to bring the score to 4-1. After being fouled himself, Jack Thompson curled a superb free kick from 20 yards into the top corner to bring some hope to the blues but it wasn't to be as Duke scored a 5th and final goal. Real credit must go to the St Newlyn boys for their resilience and positivity, especially to those playing in unfamiliar positions, notably Steve Revell in central defence.

Man of the Match: Jack Thompson

St.Stephen 1 v St.Minver 7

Minver started without a recognised Keeper, second top scorer Chris Simmons started between the sticks and did a great job. Chris launched an early goal kick the St.Stephen Keeper and defender came for the ball but top scorer Northcott got his head to the ball (header) with a brave jump against two on coming players. 3 minutes in an 0-1 Minver continued too press the St. Stephens defence. It took a cracking 40yd shot from Ben Beesley to make it -0-2. Steve Wootton was next with an individual goal for 0-3. 3 goals down St.Stephen rallied and held for the rest of the first half. Minver defence gave nothing away in the second half and it was Dan Witts who came in at the far post to slot home number 4, this was quickly followed by Northcotts 2nd Minvers 5th. 5 nil up Minver rang the changes Debutant Corey Cleave replaced Richard Simmons and instantly made an impact with his goal 0-6. St. Stephen scored a good goal but too late to aviod an inevitable Minver win. Sub Joe Robinson had the final say for a Minver 1-7 victory. Also must mention Ref Ian Osborne who had a good game and got little wrong dispite battling with injury.

Torpoint Athletic 5-0 St Columb Major

Goal scorers: Graham O'Neill, Byron Robbins (2), Tom Smith (P), Lewis Pacey (P).

A convincing win for Torpoint, I was very happy with my first game back in charge this season. Some tough games coming up and we can take a lot of positives from a Major team that have started the season well.
