Premier Sixes 7 - 2 Grampound Reserves

Recommended Posts

P6 have one of the biggest squads in cornish football yet for the second match running the squad rotation backfired as two key midfielders were awol as the squad assembled leaving a scratch 12. A tactical rejig saw centre half Dan Code thrown into midfield and subs Tony **** and Paul Hughes into the starting line up. P6 started well with Neil Currah driving home from the angle. Martyn Probert made it 2-0 and a volley from Tom Currah looked to have sealed a nice 3-0 half-time lead. The ref had other ideas and awarded Grampound a penalty when their striker ran out of steam and had a heart attck in the box. Nobody could quite believe their eyes including Grampound. The big man Tim stepped up to make it 3-1 minutes short of the break. The goal probably affected the team talks in both camps at the break with Grampound having a lifeline while there was anger in the P6 camp at one of the worst decisions we'll see this year. The penalty did more to spur on P6 than Grampound as Probert fired in his second to make it 4-1, Sam Leamy fired in the goal of the game finding the top corner from 22 yards to make it five before Dan Parsonage bundled the ball over the line to make it six. At this point P6 had secured a big enough lead to put them top of the league and could have had more had Code and Probert managed to convert their one on one's. 6-1 would have been a half decent victory over the battling Grampound team given the disruption caused by the missing players. Grampound stalwart Alastair Woodman who frequents the P6 sunday league with his 2 teams had other ideas heading home a corner after a David James lapse from keeper Ringrose. 6-2 wasn't really the result we wanted at the start, thankfully the big man Tom Currah fired his second in from the edge of the box in the dying minutes to restore the 5 goal lead. The team have a big night out before the Pelynt game so the rotation will have one final outing before what should be our strongest 11 take to the field for the cup matches against Biscovey and Calstock. Good game. thanks to Woody and the boys and the ref who had a good game despite the penalty howler (we gave him 91 out 100)

It's a nice surface, at this time of year when they pitches are rock hard the 3G astro pitch is probably softer! The pitch was an advantage to Premier Sixes I would say though due to the fact that they are all familiar with the surface due to play 6-a-side on it each week. Also as they're a good footballing side it's going to help them as there's no bobbles. We're more of a battling side, so when they come to Grampound hopefully it'll be a mud bath! I think people will be surprised with the pitch, it's not like Poltair's sand based astro, you can slide tackle on it and you can knock the ball round without any worry of the grass being too long or it getting stuck in the mud!
