Div 5

Marazion Res 8-0 Newlyn

Was a great response following Sundays semi final defeat tonight. From the first whistle we passed the ball around, keeping possession and created chance after chance. Matty Thomas opened the scoring after about 15 minutes after being put through, slotting passed the keeper. Craig Rennard doubled our lead shortly afterwards and then got his second pinching it off Matty's toes just as he was about to shoot. Only 3-0 at half time but could have been a lot more if not for the Newlyn keeper who was having a blinder. Liam Mooney had the miss of the day when a cross found him at the far post, two yards out, unmarked but he spooned it over.

Second half was much the same, plenty of possession and creating chance after chance. Jason O'Sullivan then scored his first when Matty split the Newlyn defence with a reverse pass and Jason slid the ball passed the advancing keeper. Jason the earned a penalty when he was brought down following a run into the box. Dale Vigus stepped up to send the keeper the wrong way. Matty scored his second and our sixth with a bullet header from a corner and then grabbed his hat trick when Dale played him in. He beat a defender and tried to pass to me unmarked on the six yard box but the keeper got in the way and the ball landed back to Matty who tapped it into the back of the net. Jason then wrapped up the scoring with a left footer which went under the diving keeper.

Credit to Newlyn they battled til the final whistle and played with smiles on their faces. Quiet game for Eric today and I can't recall him making a save in the entire game. Referee made a few questionable decisions tonight especially when Dale was fouled three or four times when shielding the ball then the ref blew up and gave Newlyn the free kick and booked Dale!! Bizarre to say the least. Hopefully same again on Thursday when we meet again.

Div 2: Titans 2-1 Wendron

Big game at the top of the table went the way of Titans. The home team came out of the traps strongly, winning every tackle and header, and scored after about 10 minutes when a corner wasnt cleared and was neatly tucked away by Jack Stocker.

As the half wore on Titans remained the dominant side but Wendron slowly settled down and created a couple of chances on the break. However, what turned out to be the decisive goal came on the stroke of half time when a free kick into the top corner gave Titans a 2-0 half time lead.

Wendron came out stronger in the second half, and started to put some pressure on the Titans defence, but the home team always looked dangerous on the counter. Then with 20 miinutes to play Wendron got a lifeine when a shot from Adam Keenan was missed by the keeper. With 20 minutes left to play Wendron pushed forward but were unable to get the equaliser that would have led to a grandstand finish.

Overall, a tough game between 2 teams at the top of the table, but Titans impressive first half performance just gave Wendron too much to do in the second half.

Titans just need 6 points to win the title now

DIV 5

ST.ERME. (0) 1 Rapsey 68'

CAMB PARK (2) 3 Fenton 12' Norfolk 26' ??? 88'

Game of two halves really. Park were superb in the first half and ripped us to shreds all over the pitch with their pace and movement and we were lucky it was only 0-2 at half time!!! Cross from the right which Jason Fenton superbly headed back across Denis and in off the far post and a quarter hour later Pete Norfolk cut in from the left and curled the ball into the far corner for a great finish. Another couple of half chances as well that went wide and over and we failed to register one attempt on goal first half. Totally outplayed so we changed it a bit half time and took the game to Park and even possibly deserved a draw for our non stop pressure second half, I missed an easy header before scoring one the same and the turning point was when Ian McDonnell whipped a great cross in and I looped a header back across goal which was just dropping inside the far post and young Jordan Knuckey somehow produced a dive header and twist to head it around the post for a corner!! Brilliant really but gutted. :-(. A few minutes later the young sub got on the end of a breakaway and smashed it past Den to seal the points. No complaints from us though, two great games against Park this season and hope they get all they deserve. Cracking team and nice bunch of lads, far too good for Div 5 that's for sure.

Ludgvan 8 - 3 Trevenson

A good win against a much improved Trevenson side. We went 3 - 0 up only for Trevenson to level at 3 - 3. We managed to pull oursleves together & go in at half time with a 5 - 3 lead. Three more goals settled things in the second half with us ending up winning 8 - 3. Full credit to Trevenson who looked to play some decent football, on that performance they should be a lot higher up the league than they are. Well played lads, all the best for the rest of the season.

A quick mention for Franco who took a hefty knock in the chest from one of our lads & wish him a speedy recovery.

well what a game that swang one way to another and back again. Gwinear took the lead after 4 minutes only for helston to equalise on 9 minutes through skipper phil black. We struggled to play much football on the small pitch but managed to take the lead on 26 minutes when black scored his second of the game. Just when it looked like we would go into the break with lead Gwinear equalised just before half time. Second half continued to see some tough tackling from both teams. Gwinear then scored twice to lead 4-2 and must of thought the points were theirs..but with 15 minutes remaining Fraser Cummins popped up with a header to make it 4-3. We then changed the formation to 3 up front in search for the equaliser. ..and just when it all looked over Craig Tanner was put through and equalised in the 94 th minute. A draw a fair result but did neither teams any favours in the race for promotion. Also think both teams will agree that the game was spoilt by one man!! Thanks for the hospitality afterwards

Gwinear Reserves 4-4 Helston III

Will leave Dobbie give the match Report.

Cury 0-5 Penryn div 2

Different story to last week when cury took a decent squad to penryn and got a draw. This week due to more work commitments and more injuries to the squad meant cury looked weak from the start add that to penryn re- instating at least one player from senior football(at least that's what I was told) it was only going to end up in one result. Well done to the lads for staying together and battling on not long to go before we can wrap up the season and have a long hard look at what we can do next season. Well Reffed by Phil cuthbert as always. On a different not thanks to the penryn player in the Audi that decided to drive across the pitch at the end of the game whilst we are aware that the facilities are very poor at cury I think we deserve the respect not to drive across the pitch

No reinstated player, just our goalie who is normally our striker help our firsts out Saturday and netted himself a hat-trick. So good job he wasn't up front could of possibly been more than 5! Also sorry for driving across the pitch I thought I was doing you a favour flattening your bobbly pitch.

I thought that last nights game at Titans, was a very entertaining game, played in a good spirit by both teams. There seems to be a lot of flack for match officials on this forum, so I must say that Lee Mitchell handled the whole game really well, he was explaining his decisions to players and as an ex player he understands players frustrations, in a pressure game for both sides. Well done Lee.

Fantastic game to be involved in last night against a very good Helston side. It wasn't made easy by the referee who continually had his whistle in his mouth and cards in his hand... No real fluent football was played simply because there would be a break in play every other minute! But, he was consistently poor with both sides so, in a way, he was okay? Didn't favour any side. I won't slate the guy, it's tough being the man in the middle, I certainly wouldn't do it.

A really well battled game as you'd expect from the top two sides scrapping it out to get one hand on the trophy! Each goal well taken for both sides with good build up play. A draw was definitely a fair result as it was hard took between the two sides who were both outstanding. Gwinear will feel hard done by, being 4-2 up with 15mins to go then Helston getting the equaliser in the 94th minute but I'm sure each player walked off that field knowing they had put in a shift. A draw was a fair result.

The title is there for either of the top four to win. We must win all our games and hope results go our way to win it but, with Helston, Park and Marazion also looking strong contenders, it's going to go right to the end I'm sure

Division 2

Hayle 3rd's 1 - 3 St Ives Reserves

After the capitulation that was the last 5 minutes of Saturday's game, we were rather glad to have a game so soon afterwards to try and make amends.
With the first team also playing again, Dagger's spent his afternoon playing text message roulette, but managed to put together a squad of 14, including a return of the OAP, which I was most grateful of as it meant I wasn't the oldest on the pitch for us.
Prior to kick off, the rumour had been of having the game played on the main pitch at Hayle, and we were very privileged that this was the case so thank you to Greg for letting us play on such a highly regarded surface.
Playing on such a wide and flat pitch suited us right from the off, with our Under-18 version of the Barcelona midfield again zipping the ball around and evading tackles with all the grace of Beth Tweddle.
After a few early balls had been sent in to worry those in green, including a great shin rattler that missed the post by an inch to save an own goal, we took the lead after 10 minutes. Unsurprisingly, the ball came from a wide area, as the OAP, having had to miss the London Marathon this week due to his zimmer frame being repaired, took off down the wing like he was in a race with Mo Farah to the finish line, before sending a blistering cross over which nearly evaded everyone. Luckily, we had Jake Cook back up front and he's about 6"3 tall and 6" wide, so the ball hit him and fell to our new goal machine Barney Poznansky on the edge of the area, and he wasted no time in getting it out of his feet, picking his spot and opening the scoring. Barney almost double his tally moments later, as he flicked the ball up to himself to unleash a wondrous half volley from all of 25 yards that took the coating off the outside of the post and cross bar.

However, I seem to have brought that awful disease I had at Halsetown with me to St Ives, in that we conceded almost straight away. Hayle were also enjoying the chance to play on the TR27 Wembley, and after a good passing move from back to front, the ball came in from the wide left, though looked to have gone safe over everyone in the box. The Hayle right back had soldiered all the way down the pitch though, retrieving the ball and sending it back into the box. Once again it sailed over everyone, but for one man in green at the far post, who was at such a tight angle to the goal that he was practically sitting at the bar in the clubhouse. Instead of being kind to me and trying to get it back in the box, he had the audacity to hit an outside of the boot flicked volley into the top corner, thus making RVP's effort for Manchester United the other night look rather ordinary.
The next 20 minutes were fairly open, with both teams passing it well, but with only a shot from distance straight down both goalkeeper's throats to show for it. Those in grey were having the lions share of possession though, and I thought we looked favourites to score. This prediction nearly came back to bite me, as Hayle attacked well down the right, and after Josh Curnow (back at centre back and not passing to the opposition for a change) and Nick Strong had made half interventions, Chris Holgate (making his first start I hasten to add), came out of nowhere from left wing to make a last ditch tackle. What followed was something Arsene Wenger would have certainly seen and applauded, as the ball was shifted from one end of the pitch to the other via 5 St Ives players and a combined total of about 6 touches, with the OAP once again the provider, and this time the ball falling in front of Jake "The Fridge" Cook to slam home from inside the 6 yard area.
HT 1 - 2
For once, the manager was rather calm at half time (he finally picked up the water bottle I'd put Prozac in), and the message was clear; More of the same. And, for once, we actually listened, as the ball spent the majority of its time actually on the pitch and finding itself at players' feet, until I got hold of it and tried sending it out of the Solar System at any given opportunity, though even this was proving somewhat effective, as The Fridge, so delighted at ending a scoring drought worse than Chris Sutton's, was battling for everything in the air and winning most. His aerial prowess nearly brought a third goal, when a downward header looked destined for the net, only for the Hayle keeper to pull off an outstanding save with his foot to deflected it onto the bar.
Throughout the years, I've never bore witness to an easy game against the men in green, and as the half wore on, they were finding plenty of the ball too, and it was clear that the next goal would be key. What actually transpired was that the next key refereeing decisions were to prove decisive, as some of the bad luck we've been having recently finally turned around.
Firstly, a ball was slid through an inch wide gap in the midfield and defence, and missed everyone, including the Hayle player and Andy Barry who had tracked his run, but as Andy had gone to ground in trying to cut the ball out, the Hayle player was obstructed and landed in the penalty area. As the ref blew his whistle, I was setting myself to face a penalty (and those in green certainly thought it was), but he promptly explained the initial contact had come right on the edge of the area and awarded a free kick. Luckily for us, when this was taken, emotions were probably still running a bit high, and the ball was sent off towards a tractor 4 fields down.
This served as the warning we needed, and after a couple of substitutions, we got back into our rhythm, promptly releasing John "Maccadiniho" (one name I didn't make up for a change) MacWilliams into the area. He was clipped from behind and hit the deck forehead first, but once again the referee decreed this wasn't a penalty. From this though, Hayle never properly cleared their lines, and the ball was knocked over the top to Macca again, with the referee this time ignoring a linesman's offside flag to let play continue, leading to a throw in on the opposite side of the pitch. Whilst the Hayle players and supporters were still arguing the offside decision, that man Macca again popped up in the box, and with some contact being made, landed in a pile. This time, and perhaps with the earlier appeal still in his mind, the referee awarded a penalty. The Fridge promptly strode up to take it, and the Hayle keeper kindly made it easier for him by striding almost to the 6 yard line during the run up (though I'm sure the protocol there is a retaken penalty?).

Credit to Hayle who never gave up on the game and always looked a threat whilst only a goal behind, but the lads in front of me played some really great stuff last night, and for long swathes I was not much more than a spectator wearing a kit.

Thank you again to Hayle for letting the teams play on such a fantastic pitch, and for the hospitality afterwards, though strangely, we only counted 1 Hayle player in the bar? Probably because they knew the telly was broke and we watched 15 minutes of Bayern vs Barca in black and white!

No game on a Saturday again for us, but a Monday night fixture against "fairly decent" opposition...

Thanks Paul and co for the comments, Really really enjoyed the game as it was a fast paced game? Didnt realise the pitch was that big at Roskear and with the slope i had to work harder to stay up with Play but managed it and my injury held up so back up with the big boys this weekend at St Austell. Titans and Wendron will have no problems with the next league up or even the premier. goodluck for the season and it was really good to referee were boths skippers listened and actually skippered the side and not just wear the armband.

Div 3

Chacewater 1 V 3 Rangers,

Big game for both of us last night with both teams no doubt having one eye on the Russel Hall final (5th May). To be fair it was a pretty even contest with both sides looking like they could score. When they could reach the right end as it were. Nil, Nil at the half and perhaps Rangers edged it on chances. Although Chacewater did hit the bar. It started to get a little tasty just before the whistle as well and the ref suddenly had his work cut out.

Second half with tempers cooled with the half time drinks, Rangers edged onto the front foot and into the lead. Chacewater responded quickly to level it going straight down the Rangers middle, bing, bang, bosh. Then after several chances went a missing a ball into the home box resulted in a charge down and a penalty. With several other hand balls having been given earlier it was no surprise when this one was given either. Penalty duly dispatched Rangers 1-2 up. The game then entered a period of break and counter break. With no real end product and not to many saves for the keepers to make. As time was running out a long range belter was driven into the home goal 1-3 to the visitors. No time left on the clock to respond and it was all over, save a few cards from a very disgruntled ref.

As usual to Chacewater thanks for a good game and the referee thanks for your efforts too. I look forward to the final and with (hopefully) three officials it could be a cracker. Thanks again fella's.

Lanner 3 vs 1 Gulval Reserves

A pretty disappointing performance from the Gulval lads after a bright start which saw them take the lead through "makeshift" striker Matty Johns. However Gulval could only manage to play consistently for the first 15-20 mins and after that we struggled to string 2 passes together. Second half didnt start much better and Lanner managed to add to the scoreline making it 3-1 with about 65 mins gone. Gulval had chances in the last quarter of the game to affect the scoreline, but to no avail.

Fair play to Lanner, they know how to play on a pitch that looks like a street in Helmands.

Very well reffed

GMOM: Jamie Leah, played with determination, intelligence and ability.

GPOTW: Sorry but Jordy Coops for your amazing air shot, I mean dummy :ninja:.
