Some big fixtures played out today, game of the day in Cornwall has to be at Poltair, sure to get a good crowd in. Bodmin away at Plymouth Argyle, two teams gunning for top spot, lovely set up at Devon FA headquarters, just hope we are not to heavy legged from Wednesday night. Will be no qualms from us what side they send out either!  Saltash/Launceston will be quite tasty as well I should imagine

A rather jaded Sticker side still managed a win against a much changed championship winning Mousehole side of last season.  If Sticker want to go the whole season undefeated, they will have to up the tempo of their game somewhat in their remaining fixtures against some good opposition. Mousehole to their credit never gave up, and were rewarded with probably thew best goal of the match. Best of luck to Sticker when completing what has been a spectacular season for them.

Camelford 1 v 5 Cullompton

Wasnt going to do a match report on this one, as few would believe it, but as so few reports done on weekend fixtures, I thought it would be worth while. 

Camels pitch was not in its best condition after a mid week match against Godolphin and yet to be rolled due to rain etc - was playable but very bobbly. The weather was the first bit of decent sunshine in months and a strong wind blowing down the pitch.

The game started fairly evenly with neither side really creating much until a lovely cross field ball deceived the Camels left back and with one touch and a great angled 20yd volley Cullompton right wing opened the scoring (he was their best player). Camels equalised following a great combination between two of the Camels County U18 players - Joe crossing for Ed to finish with a great header.  Again the game settled into a 50/50 game with no real chances until a long ball over the top by Cullompton with the Camels keeper  caught in no mans land and Cullompton left wing scoring with a simple looping unopposed header from the edge of the penalty box - real shame he 'left a bit' on the keeper after he had headed the ball - the ball was gone and in the net but he still chose to leave a elbow for the young keeper (unseen by all officials). 2-1 at HT

Second half started with Camels in the ascendency, with the slope and strong wind and with in 5 minutes a Camels player had rounded the keeper and was jogging the ball into the open net when from 5yds did a Ronny Rosental and side footed the ball wide!  A minute or so later Cullompton hoofed a long ball forward and the Camels defender misjudged a simple clearance to let in a surprised Cully winger for a simple pass and head in - funny if not so crucial for the game. It then went from bad to worse when Camels defender passed back to keeper having had an age to clear, the ball went past the keeper to a waiting Cully striker 4-1, and then to finish the scoring the Camels keeper went to throw the ball out to launch a counter but the ball hit the back of a Camels defenders head and dropped straight to a Cully player for a third simple goal in 10 minutes -- 5-1 final score. 

The game was actually very close, Camels paid the price for missing simple chances and gifting Cully 4 goals (all bar the first which was a cracker).

One thing that does need mentioning though is the behaviour of some of the Cullompton players - last season they were a good bunch of lads, good team and great attitude - in this game though they moaned at every decision (up until Camelford gave them the game), they hurranged the ref and lineman and; rolled around screaming after a foul (it was a foul) to get a player booked and then up and laughing; stamped on a players ankle (foul was given by the ref for stamping yet only a yellow?); swung a punch at a player on the break (linesman never saw it from 3 yds and ref blind sided) plus lots more little niggly stuff - it is such a shame but something seems to have happened to the team on the pitch, which they don't need - they are a good team, go back to just playing the football.

Pastyman comments only to praise or defend the club. Very quiet when things are looking grim.

Grim? More than grim. Sack the management team. Yes, the defeat hurts, if it didn't, I wouldn't be so passionate. I know we had a poor game and don't need to come on here and say anything else. To compound the hurt, had a cycling accident yesterday and now licking those wounds.

But second in the league and in the Cornwall Senior Cup final, makes you feel good. Ha ha

Pastyman will be back over to Parkway again next season. 

Don't think so. Good times ahead at "the ashes" . A club with its feet firmly on the ground now.

Plymouth Argyle Res 0-3 Bodmin Town

Argyle fielding a very strong side, but we outplayed them from start to finish. Credit to them they were very complimentary towards Bodmin & a real pleasure to play against. No moaning from us either in regards to them play full time professionals that have appeared regularly in their first time. No moans or groans from us.

I doubt they was watching Lewis young . If anything they would of been looking at Ryan Richards for next season 

Hasn't Lewis scored something like 22 goals from the wing?  Not sure how many assists he has as well but surely any club would be interested in those sort of stats?  Imagine if there was also a free scoring CF to go with that support from the wing.  Could possibly have been looking at both.....

If the rumours are true, then Parkway's front line next year could be frightening. Hearing that they're looking to bring some previous players (big names) back to the club, and with the financial backing of the chairman, they could be a real force to reckon with. 

On the Lewis Young front, I cannot understand why people keep comparing him to the league's other strikers, when he has played the majority of the season from the left flank, contributing 22 goals in the process. If I was Parkway, adding a goalscoring winger to what could be a fantastic strikeforce as it is would be something that I'd be interested in.

Heard the parkway management team were there on Saturday just to watch him. Could be eyeing him up for a deadline day move 

Sounds a bit strange as they would know all the players there anyway - more likely just out to watch a game of football?

Parkway had a very big budget and clear intentions this season and unfortunately it never panned out - I for one hope they do put together a strong squad and continue to seek promotion - the League could do with showing progression and there are realistically only a couple of teams who could seek promotion - Parkway / Exmouth
