Gwinear res  3  Chacewater res 0 

Was a great performance from our lads, we took our chances and defended well. Chacewater made us work hard for it. Thought the officials were great and Mike Glanville the ref was superb. All the best to Chacewater.  Big thankyou to St Day for being great hosts.

A really good game for the neutral I think. After our defeat at Ludgvan on Saturday, it was important that we got into the game nice and early. With Craig Young, Andrew Symons, James Graham, Kris Uren, Shane Rosevear and Carl Stretton returning to the side after missing out on Saturday, we were now back to full strength. 


A bright start by Gwinear saw early opportunities arise from strikers Dave Bartlam and Connor Arthur, who both caused issues throughout the game for the Chacewater defence.

The defensive line of Jason Fenton, Craig Young and Bash Sheriff very rarely let anything past which made goalkeeper Peter Willis's job a lot easier.


After 17 minutes, Connor Arthur had a shot which was saved well and ended up out for a throw in. After another short spell, a shot by Arthur saw it blocked by a defender to land at Bartlams feet, the shot was taken and well saved by the keeper, but only as far as Bartlams outstretched toe, which directed the ball into the back of the net.

Shortly after on 20 minutes, another throw was conceded by Chacewater. This saw Nick Troon launch the ball into the box, a determined Kris Uren managed to see off the challenge  and get the flick on to the back post as far as Bartlam who headed the ball across goal and over the keeper to secure a neat team second goal.

The keeper was regularly under pressure and saved well throughout the whole game from both the strikers.

Ten minutes from half time and a break on the right between Reave Kendall and Connor Arthur saw a ball crossed into the box for Bartlam to run through and hit past the keeper... A clever step up from the man behind the striker ensured he ran from an offside position; close call but I'm told the right one.


Half Time Gwinear Reserves 2 Chacewater Reserves 0


The message was clear at half time - this was our game to lose so important that we do not drop our heads and lose concentration.

Within 17 seconds the ball was again being picked out the back of the net by the Chacewater Keeper. A good run up the left from Andrew Symons saw him place the ball into the path of Bartlam. On the edge of the box and with bit of a dance, a tame attempt was put on goal. Keeper gathered well at the near post but a bit of spin took it out of his grasp, rolling into the side of the net. 3-0

The rest of the game saw a few chances fall to Chacewater, who played a 3-5-2 formation, but fortunately our defence and goalkeeper held strong and ensured we left Vogue with a clean sheet.

A few more chances dropped for Bartlam, Arthur, Fenton etc during the second half but due to a combination of good goalkeeping and defending, the chances weren't to end in a goal.


The introduction of Carl Stretton, Josh Chandler, Mert Screen and Shane Rosevear steadied the game towards the end and made sure that we walked away as comfortable winners and into a cup final against Wendron.


A big thank you to St Day for the hospitality, the pitch was in really good condition and the sausage and chips saved the other half from cooking when I got home :)


Very well officatied today, by far the best referee we've had all season.

Threemilestone 0-0 Holmans 


fairly entertaining goalless draw played out at chacewater last night , Holmans edged the more chances but couldn't take them and stones missed some beauty s of there own fair result in the end. Highlight of the night listening to Carharrack ex pats of Threemilestone spurring on there old team how gracious of them all after they left them deep in the , at the beginning of the season. ??


Another good battling performance from the Stones in our last game to keep out one of the highest scoring teams in the prem. Dom Pullen missed a couple of decent chances in the 1st half but on the whole both keepers had fairly comfortable games. Thought we could of nicked a win with a good chance 5 minutes from time but for a good block 3 yards from the line. The midfield boys had a good battle all night with Paul Suddes outstanding for us. In the end a draw a fair result. Many thanks to Chacewater for letting us use the pitch and facilities.

Good luck to Marksy and Holmans in the combo next season, and i hope we can take our recent good form into the start of next season.

A fair report Dave and Gwinear certainly deserved the win.You started on the front foot and after that we never really got into the game,a bit of pressure in the second half from us but we were chasing the game by then.

Agreed that the three officials all had good games and the game was a fairly honest affair with not too much for Mike to deal with.

Not sure about this 4-5-2 formation? I can assure everyone that Chacewater only had eleven players on the pitch at any one time.lol

Good luck to Gwinear in the final v Wendron.
