JJ Jones Duchy Football League from Michael Newcombe

Callington Town caused a bit of an upset with a three nil win on penalties as they put Camelford out of the Bodmin Sports Trophies League Cup. The match at Trefrew Park finished two all at the end of ninety minutes and three all after extra-time. Craig Thompson scored a brace for Camelford with Fergus Lessels also finding the target. Callington replied through a Jordan Swinney brace and an Aaron Phillips goal.

Saltash United have drawn level with AFC St.Austell at the top of the Premier Division after defeating St.Mawgan 2-1. John Truscott gave St.Mawgan a first half lead, but Saltash turned the game around after the break with goals from Lewis O’Rourke and Lee Hawkins.

Mevagissey lost a second successive game when beaten by a lone Alex Mayne goal at Lamerton.

The bottom two in Division One met at Week St.Mary with Gunnislake holding out for a goalless draw, which doesn’t help either side a great deal.

Looe Town won their derby battle with Pelynt 3-2. Max Anderson scored a brace for Looe with Chris Sykes adding their other goal. Tom Marjeram and Liam Jones replied.

St.Breward won a close game mixed with some good and some scrappy play between two teams fighting to get away from the bottom two in Division Two. Dan Couch scored the only of a game against Gerrans & St.Mawes United with just five minutes remaining. And also top marks to veteran referee Dave Martin who showed great Christmas spirit by giving back part of his match fee to the home club.

Premier Sixes were not at their best in the first half against Lanreath, but took the lead through Luke Wort with a strike from twenty-five yards. James Barrett pulled the visitors level, but Wort restored the home advantage before half time with a goal from a free kick. Sixes made some changes of position at the break and were much more dangerous in the second half. Martyn Probert scored their third before Dan Code who had switched from left back to striker in the final 13 minutes made it 4-1after firing home following great work from Jack Bevan. Code scored the winner megging the last defender before bending a 25 yard shot in the corner of the net. Lanreath played much better than the final 5-1 score-line would suggest and match referee Darryn Bragg had a superb game on a day when football came out the winner.

Sticker upset Lostwithiel with a 3-2 away win, which doesn’t help the host’s promotion prospects. Martin Matthews put Sticker ahead with Ryan Searle equalising. Luke Perkes and Alex Keast put the visitor’s 3-1 up before Ryan Morcom pulled back a goal.

Leaders Padstow United overcame their latest injury crisis to beat AFC Bodmin two nil with Kyle Tippett and Johnny Murt finding the target.

It was a game of two halves as St.Stephen drew their Division Three match with Welcome Inn two all. St.Stephen started brightly but conceded a goal against the run of play in the tenth minute when Gary Dunphy saw the keeper off his line and floated a shot over his head. St.Stephen were level after twenty minutes when James Allen unleashed an unstoppable shot and they were now well on top. Matthew Grigg beat a couple of players on the edge of the box before being bundled to the ground. From the resultant free kick Jason Prynne fired the hosts ahead. Welcome came more into the game in the second half and when the home defence failed to clear the ball Phil Roberts hit the equalising goal. Welcome forced a number of corners as the game progressed but there was no further scoring.

Tregony beat the improving Roche team 2-1. Louis O’Brien-Maye and Michal Ryzak scored for Tregony with Andy Geach replying.

Second placed Stoke Climsland were turned over 1-4 by third placed Holywell/Cubert Athletic who now climb above them in the league. Tom Savage was the home marksman.

St.Neot won 3-2 at Gunnislake reserves to move up to mid-table in Division Four. Joe Pulley and Ben Farrar scored the home goals, but the visitor’s prevailed with goals from Nathan Berry, Dan Chapman and Adam Gregory.

Tintagel are up to fourth after a 3-2 win at Wadebridge Town. Jimi Siford scored a brace with leading scorer Shaun Keeble adding another to his total. Wadebridge replied with goals from Ryan Brown and Rob Centini.

Karl Gross scored the home goal as Pensilva reserves and Lifton shared the points from a one all draw.

St.Cleer reserves stay next to bottom after losing two nil at home to Gorran.

The top of the table clash in Division Five ended with St.Columb Major reserves leapfrogging North Petherwin reserves after a 3-2 success. There was little to separate these two teams throughout the game. Joe Reeve fired the visitors ahead in the fifteenth minute with Luke Worrall equalising around the half hour mark. Worrall put St.Columb ahead five minutes into the second half, but the visitors were level midway through the half when Dan Hancock scored. Adam Brenton became the home hero with the winning goal ten minutes from time.

Player of the day was surely Dean Seville who scored five of Tregrehan Mills six at St.Newlyn East reserves. Ricardo Lanzana was the other scorer as the visitor’s kept the hosts of the score sheet.

Veryan won 4-1 at St.Mawgan reserves with Charlie Mooney hitting a brace. Toby Robinson and Tom Allen completed the visitor’s tally with Chris Leach scoring the home consolation.

Southgate Seniors stay unbeaten and in contention after a 4-1 defeat of Pelynt reserves. Tom Wyman, Rob Oldaker, Jamie Holden and Dan Gregory scored for Southgate.

Boscastle reserves moved out of the bottom two after goals from Harley Westlake, Alex Gibbons and Sam Haddy gave them a surprise three nil win over St.Merryn.

St.Dominick put their Cornwall Junior Cup tie with North Hill to bed in the opening thirteen minutes with three goals. Joe Wood gave them a third minute lead with Scott Coombe doubling the advantage from a free kick in the sixth minute. St.Dominick were then awarded a penalty, which Stephen Paull converted. North Hill pulled a goal back from Dan Hamblen after the break but Sam Holliday quickly restored the host’s three-goal lead. Greg Hutchings reduced the arrears again only for Sam Holliday to push St.Dominick closer to the next round. Saints goalkeeper Neil Campbell made a fine save on the stroke of time, but the ball rebounded out to James Bloomfield who had the final say for North Hill as he reduced the final deficit to 5-3.

Grampound are through to the last eight after defeating Foxhole 1-0 in a good game played in good spirit throughout. Grampound dominated large parts of the match, but failed to create any clear-cut openings in the first half. The host’s hit a post and bar after the break and both teams missed a couple of good chances. The only goal came when Shane Weeks hit a low drive from thirty yards. The Foxhole keeper could only parry the ball and Lee Budge passed the ball into the net.

personally i think it shows a lack of respect saying ur going to stuff someone before the game and we have a lot of young players in our side who did the club proud today even when the tackled were flying in on them ! Cant see st merryn push for promotion as i feel that we have played far better teams already this yr with the likes of st columb and veryan north petherwin also southgate are all better !

It does show lack of respect. I've played men's footy for 12 yrs now and never had an easy game at boscastle

definatly not an easy place to come both team over the last few years have struggled to get good players to our club but now we seem to have some good youngster coming though and are now starting to build for the future so hopefully for our seconds the result today will be a massive lift against so called promotion contenders

St. Columb Major Reserves 3 - 2 North Petherwin Reserves

Full-back Adam Brenton proved to be the unlikely hero as second placed Major overturned an early deficit to take all three points from league leaders North Petherwin and with it their place at the top of the table.

With illness and injury accounting for three Major players, Manager Nigel Worrall was forced to reorganise his players and add first team player Adam Weller into the back four, opting to play an more attacking 4-4-2 formation against high-flying opposition that are reputed for their good football. Major started well with winger Elliot Webber seeing a great deal of early possession, although the home side were unable to carve out a meaningful opportunity early on. Despite the promising start, it became clear that the visitors had the edge as Eliot Clarke was called into action, foiling a low strike with a fine save with his legs, reacting quickly to prevent the ball from crossing the line.

The early fluency disappeared for the hosts and Major's tendency to invite pressure ultimately backfired as the visitors took the lead when header from a deep cross was cleared off the line by Jamie Tipton with the ball dropping favourably to be tucked into the net from close range. The early deficit failed to spur St. Columb into any sort of response and it was not clear how the second-placed side would wrestle their way back into the game, however, an equaliser was ultimately forthcoming when leading scorer Luke Worrall gathered a long ball and made enough space to loft an unorthodox chip that arced over the goalkeeper despite being close to his goal line. Major weren't offering a great deal of threat when going forward and looked a little disjointed in the first half, yet it was two borderline offside calls that really shaped the outcome of the game as North Petherwin were denied a counter attacking opportunity with a clear numerical advantage, closely followed by another raised flag after a fine save from Clarke had resulted in the ball being dispatched from close range. Quite how Major were level at half time seemed hard to explain, yet it was apparent that the home side couldn't continue to play in the same vein for another forty five minutes.

A resurgent Major, clearly buoyed by the fortuitous half time parity, finally emerged in the second half and looked most likely to take advantage of their growing possession and pressure. Some improved football didn't result in any clear cut opportunities until Worrall was on hand yet again to hook a speculative volley from the narrowest of angles on the right, executing a fine strike with his back to goal to give the hosts an early second half lead. Both teams continued to play their football despite the increasingly heavy conditions at The Recreation Ground and some resilient defending from both sides ensured that the margins remained narrow as the game wore on.

North Petherwin lost their attacking fluidity and their equaliser game about as a result of a well worked set piece on the hour. An incredible long throw, albeit with a possibly debatable technique resulted in a neat header that was flicked into the exposed far corner of the net and after a relatively uneventful period, the game was very much back on. Clarke in the Major goal was generally being excluded for large periods of the second half as central defender Craig Hayes found his form in the second half, intervening on a regular basis along with the impressive Weller and talented youngster David Menhennit. Major continued to search for a winner and it came from the most unlikely of sources when right-back Brenton collected the ball, slotted a neat pass to Worrall and made up enough ground to collect the return pass despite unacknowledged appeals for handball from the visitors. Brenton cooly waltzed into the area and clipped a lovely left footed finish over the advancing goalkeeper to reinstate Major's advantage with his first goal of the season.

The final quarter of an hour was fairly uneventful as Major held on to their narrow advantage; Hayes made a smart interception late on and second half substitutes Daley McErlain and Michael Rabone were unfortunate not to profit when Tipton's in-swinging free kick was fumbled inside the six yard box, with the ball dropping favourably for the visiting side to clear.

Man of the match - Luke Worrall

Great to see some positive press for match officials. Our referee, Duncan Stephenson, did a fine job today.

On a slightly different note, I thought that North Petherwin were a cracking bunch of lads, decent footballers on the pitch and some good characters on the touch line too. Should be an interesting reverse fixture...

Fair enough match report I think. We were left little gutted with couple of flags....but as you said you guys also seem like a top bunch and we look forward to you coming our way. Sam indeed has a spookily long throw
