CORNWALL AIRPORT NEWQUAY DUCHY LEAGUE

(from Mike Newcombe - many thanks)

The officers of the Duchy League made the difficult decision to continue with the league for the time being despite many other leagues throughout the Country calling a halt owing to the Covid-19 virus. Seven games were postponed, six through waterlogged pitches with just one affected by the virus. In what is an everchanging situation the league will continue to follow advice from the games governing body.

In the Duchy Knock Out Cup Lostwithiel moved into the quarterfinals with a 4-2 win at a depleted Tregrehan Mills. Lostwithiel took the lead two minutes before half time with a looping header from Jonny Harris and Harris doubled their advantage just before the hour mark with an overhead kick. Tregrehan pulled a goal back from the penalty spot from Dean Dingle in the 62nd minutes only for Lostwithiel to restore a two-goal advantage four minutes later when Harris headed a hat trick goal. Tregrehan quickly responded to reduce the arrears again through Tom Foster, but Lostwithiel sealed the tie a minute from the end of play with a breakaway goal as Harris scored his fourth goal to earn a home draw to Boscastle if the competition can continue. A very sporting contest between two teams showing great respect for each other.

The top two teams in the Premier Division met in another last sixteen tie with Stoke Climsland coming out on top at St Newlyn East after a 4-1 win. In truth the home team didn’t turn up to a man. Stoke were quicker and keener to the ball throughout and thoroughly deserved a four-goal lead given from a Josh Pope hat trick and a Reece Brown goal. Newlyn did finally respond with a Harry Mugford consolation but its Stoke Climsland who will host Polperro reserves in the next round.

Boscastle take over at the top of the Premier Division after beating Tintagel 3-1. This fixture was reversed as Tintagel’s ground was unfit. Boscastle took advantage of the two overnight leaders playing in the cup to leapfrog above them with Martin Heal scoring a brace and Rob Heal getting the other goal. Mitchell replied with the Tintagel consolation.

St Breward and Holywell/Cubert Athletic fought out a two all draw as Holywell continue to scrap against avoiding relegation. Jay Daniels and Lee Newton scored for St Breward with Ben Piper and Alex Taylor replying for Holywell.

Saltash United Thirds were 4-1 winners at AFC Bodmin. Mike Horne scored for the hosts but goals from Dan Crook, Tom Bullock, Joseph Ugborne and Phil Kombostiotis gave Saltash the spoils.

In the only game in Division One Dobwalls Reserves and Gorran shared four goals. Steve Luscombe and Scott Corson were the home scorers.

Division Two leaders Nanpean Rovers steamrollered bottom side North Hill hitting seventeen goals without reply. Destructor in chief was again Jordi Willmott with six goals while Scott Brown and Reece Willmott hit a hat trick apiece. Lewis Burnett added a brace with the other goals shared by Luke Truscott, George Bartlett and Ryan Best.

St Eval Spitfires won a wind affected game at home to Week St Mary 3-1. 2-1 up at the break St Eval held on for their win with goals from lee Gallagher, Shane Wade and Jon Summerfield. Jack Biggs was the WSM marksman.

A heavy pitch at Queens Rangers led to a very scrappy first half in their Division Three match with North Petherwin reserves. Alterations to the formation at half time led to a much better second half performance as Rangers won 5-0. Phil Walmsley opened the floodgates with a superb speciality free kick from 30 yards and he then hit the bar shortly after. The second goal came when Harri Tilston converted from a corner and then a good move culminated in Tilston rounding the keeper for the third. Tilston went close to a hat trick but his shot hit the post. Jamie Patient went on a solo run to score the fourth with substitute Jordan Brokenshire completing the scoring after another good team move.

Delabole United thrashed St Anns Chapel 8-1. Sam Turner hit a hat trick with Dave Ord adding a brace. The Delabole scoring was completed by Henry Morris, Dan Mountain and Davey Tilley.

St Mawgan reserves secured a fine 5-0 win at Bude Town Thirds.

St Newlyn East 1-4 Stoke Climsland

Deserved win for the visitors today against an out of sorts home side who produced without question our worst performance of the season

Stoke came with the bare 11 and outworked and outplayed us in every position, winning all first and second balls. 5 goals in the game with only 1 goal for each team of any real quality. 

Am trying to find something positive about our performance today but am really struggling. Time for a glass of wine I think....

Congratulations to Stoke Climsland - good luck in the next round. 
 

Jiggy, Manager

Today was our first visit to St Newlyn East in the cup. With a bare 11, but a new look side with 4 players making their debuts. I had to make sure my lads were up for it from the 1st minute as we knew how good St Newlyn have been this season and how good they are. My lads were brilliant today and I couldn't ask for anymore. St Newlyn are a decent side and have a great setup and good manager and I'm confident they will be in the top 2 or 3 come end of the season. Poss even win it. Thanks for the food after and apologies not all our players came back. See you in a few weeks in league action.

Tregehan Mills 2 Losty 4

A full blooded hard working cup tie where we just stayed in front of our depleted hosts. Both teams gave their all and 4 goals by Jonny Harris saw us through though The Millers pushed us right to the end. Great to spend time with Kier and some of our opponents today enjoying some good old football chat. A shout out to the young ref Ash, second time he has reffed us recently and he has been very good both times. Looking forward to our league meetings with The Millers sometime soon.

Bill I agree the young referee had a good game and it was a pleasire to watch two competitive sides playing on a heavy pitch weith good movement. Both keepers played their part with good saves. no real issues for the ref, good to see himmanage the game and talk to players, the caution was expected as the ref had spoken to the player twice and told him the next time the book would be used, good stepped management. Well done to all for a good afternoons entertainment.

A good old fashioned cup tie. We weren't at full strength and missed several of our goal scorers but take nothing away from Lostwithiel, deserved winners as they took their chances. A game played in the right spirit and on a sticky pitch. Every one of the visitors came back and had a drink after and we had a good chin wag about local football indeed. Really looking forward to two more fixtures in the coming months. We hope to have a full compliment and to run things closer. Best of luck in the next round to Lostwithiel who play hard and fair and with a cracking attitude. This is best summed up by Billy Davies telling one of his younger players to stop showboating and to show more respect in the final minutes after the 4th goal. Touch of class that didn't go unnoticed. Well played indeed.
