Falmouth Town v Liskeard Athletic Tues.11th.Sept 7-45pm

Recommended Posts


Another big game at Bickland sees the visit of Liskeard who have had the upper hand over Town in recent meetings -unbeaten in the last 7 league encounters.

With both clubs returning FA Vase(away) wins over the weekend this first SWPL has some added spice with 4 ex "Blues" from last season wearing the black and amber for Falmouth.

Matt and Aaron Cussack,Jamie Morrison Hill and top defender Brinton Nute(Towns most oustanding player so far)

Local interest for Liskeard will feature James Miller formerly Falmouth and last season Penryn Ath.

Falmouth will be after the points to take them to second spot and Liskeard will be looking to put right their shock 1-2 defeat at a very understrength Tavistock in midweek.

This match between Falmouth & Liskeard, proved to be a ding dong,as predicted, Liskeard are a very strong side, but very fisical, The referree from Camborne Ian Roberts was very poor to say the least, & allowed Liskeard to get away scot free from some very bad tackles, Rob Frances Towns Captain & one other player could not continue, & were subsituted,

Falmouth Goals 8 Minutes Kain Bond Liskeard's James Alexander 42 m Briton Nute 52 m. & Glen Squires 81 m. Falmouth on the 90 minute were awarded a penalty, which Simon Zinn saved,

In all a very hard fought match,

with both teams missing chances,

this win now puts falmouth in 2nd place in the league.

I thought James Alexander took the free kick Nathan Murphy(GK) punched it up for Lee Harvey to head in for a deserved equaliser.

Rob Francis was not injured as he came on for Aaron Harper-Penman 81mins.

This was Falmouth's first win over Liskeard in eight league meetings.

5 straight wins this season

Captain-Jamie Morrison-Hill, to Aaron Harper-Penman,to Rob Francis

It was Lee Harvey with the final header -confirmed by Dave D' on radio Cornwall.

Regarding the Falmouth injuries I spoke to one of the players after and the hard surface had a lot do with it.

Although Falmouth took their early lead I thought Liskeard held the upper hand first half much sharper to the ball and you couldnt deny them their deserved equaliser -albeit a keeper error.

With injuries and a reshuffled side Falmouth upped their second half tempo and created the better chances but would have been a flatering scoreline if Bond had netted a simple tap in and then Zinn denied Bowkers late penalty

Mike, the surface at Town last night may not have helped, but some of the Liskeard tackles, were over the top to say the least, & the ref was poor, & should have sorted out some of the Liskeard players, with regards to the Tackles, I agree with you on Liskeards play, one could see that it was only a matter of time before they scored,

but the Town defence played their socks off, & as you say town seemed to improve as the game progressed,

I thought that nearer the end Liskeard were showing more signs of tiredness than Falmouth.
