Trelawny League - Tues.17th August

Recommended Posts

St Just 3-2 Newlyn NA (HT 2-1) - Att 75

A very back and forth game, with Newlyn unlucky not to get a point after playing the better football second half. A few mistakes at the back from both sides were punished, but overhaul a good competitive game. Thank you to Newlyn for staying for beer - in fact fairly certain they're still there now!

West Cornwall 4 - 2 Threemilestone   Premier Division 

watched a really entertaining end to end game with little for ref Charlie Philpott to do which makes a pleasant change to see .

W C went 1 up midway through first half and another late on to lead 2-0 half time .TMS got 1 back and were playing some lovely passing football and missed a couple of good chances which ultimately cost them as a breakaway goal with 10 mins left should of wrapped the game up but TMS came back again 3-2 , 5 mins left before a fantastic run out of defence up the left wing to cross into far post for a good volley to seal a 4-2 win for W Cornwall 

Well done to everyone involved tonight

Trelawny 1 division. 

Chacewater 2 - 0 Penzance Reserves

Chacewater hosted Penzance Reserves in a very decent game at the Rec this evening. 

Chacewater scored twice in the first half going into half time up with the same score as at the weekend vs Redruth. 

However, tonight, instead of trying to sit on that lead we continued to play our usual game and press the visitors, creating chance after chance. 

Penzance were no slouches and produced a good number of goal scoring opportunities including a number of very decent long range efforts. 

However this new look Chacewater defense were solid throughout and assisted by our fantastic midfield we were able to soak up the pressure Penzance put on us.

Penzance appeared to get rather frustrated at their lack of conversions, following their 7-2 win against St Erme at the weekend with one of their players getting sin binned in the second half. 

Chacewater kept up their work rate and were rewarded with their first clean sheet of the season.

Penzance seem like a lovely group of lads and we look forward to the reverse fixture. 

Spectator numbers were likely ~30. 

MOTD Sean Preston who never stopped putting himself literally everywhere. 

We face St Erme on Saturday and will be hoping to bring this same level of play into that game. 

Up the greens! 💚💚💚💚

DIV 3. 

ATT:  27

CARHARRACK  (2)  5          Jamie ?  6’   Bobbie Staton  42’  56’   Ben Rapsey  84’  89’

TROON RES  (1)   3               29’   68’   79’


Good game of football 👏🏼  Carharrack took any early lead, Troon equalised, then the hosts lead again at half time, increased it start of 2nd half before the visitors fought back again to level it at 3-3 with 10 minutes to go! Carharrack won the game with 2 goals in the last 5 minutes. Carharracks first and last goals were absolute beauties!! First a 25 yard powerful shot that dipped over the keeper and the last a superb shot on the turn into the top corner from the edge of the area. Well reffed by Dave Rowe, played in good spirits by both teams 👏🏼👍

Must admit I was a proud dad last night Keith!!  Bens my oldest lad, great little finisher as a kid, but got a bit disallusioned with football and gave it up at 14 to concentrate on his skateboarding which he was very good at to be fair mate and won a lot of stuff, was even sponsored for a year or two. Obviously gutted at the time Keith but you just want your kids to be happy don’t you, and we were busy with his younger brother Jacks football travelling around a bit and taking up a few hours every week and the daughter Eloise was a decent sprinter so had her athletics as well!! He sort of got back into the game over the last few years at Cardiff Uni mostly 6 a side stuff up there with his mates and said he’d like to play again. Dario was an old mate from school who is running Carharrack at the moment on his crutches while he’s out injured, great youngster been really unlucky with injuries last couple years, (you’ll hear his name when he’s back playing for sure Keith! Class player). Said I really enjoyed my season there at the end of my career, lovely club. He was a bit nervous to be honest but proud of him going back to play his first league game for about 10 years, since u14s I think! He came on at half time and was blowing a bit on the left wing, he’s a fit lad but football fitness is a different thing altogether! Grew into the game mate and ended up scoring twice at the end! His 2nd goal was an absolute worldie as well Keith!! On the turn into the top corner from the edge of the area last minute. Even the Troon bench and supporters were clapping and came on the pitch at the final whistle to shake his hand, really nice gesture from them, love that side of football. Could tell he was buzzing after and hopefully will do his confidence the world of good, he loved celebrating a good win with the lads. Was great to see him back enjoying football again Keith 👏🏼👍️

Superb that Keith! You must be very proud! I’ll keep my eye out for the name mate! Go up to Exeter and watch the rugby a few times a year, great afternoon out! My mate is a season ticket holder and can’t make every game. Mrs goes in Ikea for 3 hours and I stroll over to the rugby! Meet up for meatballs after the game! Ideal Keith! 👍😁 All the best to you mate 👍

17th August 2021

Trelawny Division 1

Chacewater 2-0 Penzance Reserves

Att - 31

 Another frustrating day at the office. Have 70% of the play and chances and walk away with nothing to show. Beaten by a training pitch goal and an unlucky own goal.

Both keepers made a couple of outstanding saves but time and time again Penzance were taking shots, especially in the first half that were dropping into the grateful keepers arms. The second half saw Penzance fire wide time and again. Chacewater had maybe 10-12 digs on goal, Penzance had 30 plus.

Penzance kick off and are on the attack from the whistle. As stated shots were going in but straight to the keeper.

Chacewater were quick on the break but nothing comes from them.

Chacewater keeper forced to make a fingertip flick over the bar.

Then on 13mins they are awarded a free kick, 35 yds out in the centre. The ball is hoofed in and is cleared. Everyone runs out as it goes to a wide player on their left. He lobs it back in. Their striker turns, beats the off-side and slides the ball in, under our keeper from 6yds out. A training ground goal.

Still Penzance press. Read my note book, shot after shot, keeper saves for corners, snatches from air)

Best move of the game, Penzance lad playing number 5 gets the ball in his area, runs down the line. Sliding tackle, jumps it, 20yds, another sliding tackle, leaps it, 30ds, a nasty sliding tackle that catches him but he runs on, near their goal line, a charging tackle that takes him out. Ref takes it back to the third tackle. Great move but we were like that all over the pitch, winning the ball.

Against the run of play Chacewater win a corner, 29th minute. Over, hard and flat, hits our defender, could bounce anywhere but it drops down on the goal-line. Keeper makes a frantic grab and pulls it back but the referee gives it.

I write Penzance knocking the ball to the keeper not their strikers.


 Penzance have to push forward to get something back and the game becomes, Penzance with the ball for a couple of minutes, shoot, missed, save, or corner. Chacewater break, lose the ball, Penzance with the ball for a couple of minutes, shoot, missed, save or corner. Chacewater break, lose the ball …..

See the pattern of the second half.

Penzance lad gets sin-binned due to frustration.

No matter what is thrown at them Chacewater hold firm, (their goal keeper makes a couple of top draw saves) for an undeserved win and three points. Penzance back to the drawing board, not to give the ball to keepers, to be more clinical at finishing.

That's very harsh. The thing about football is the aim is to score more than your opponent, it doesn't matter how so to say another team didn't deserve their win is a bit out of order and makes it sound like sour grapes

Not Tuesday but Wednesday:


St Agnes 2 Lanner 5
To open our season we took the short trip to chiverton to play St Agnes 3rds. It was a lively encounter from the off with both sides having early forays towards goal. The away side opened the scoring when Brassington, on his competitive debut for the team, crossed for Cowie to finish.
The home side were spurred on and were unlucky not to equalise, hitting both the crossbar and the post whilst we unfortunately lost Clements early after a knee injury whilst attempting to meet a corner. He was replaced by Wright who had impressed at the back in the previous week.
This didn't help the back line keep tabs on the young St Agnes striker (Olly?) who looked particularly lively and dangerous. A break saw the home side score a well deserved equaliser before the break as the look the more dangerous of the teams.
The halftime break came as a bit if relief to us and hopefully a chance to regroup and a change of personnel as G.Ireson and Hicks were introduced.
This didn't go to plan however, as shortly after it was the home side that took the lead for the first time. What followed next was definitely a game changing moment. The St Agnes keeper took a big goal kick which bounced once in the middle of the pitch as defender and striker attempted to get something on it. The ball bounced through to the Aggy striker who was one on one with Cannons in goal and finished well. But there appeared to be a deflection on the way through! Was it defender or striker? The ref decided it came off the striker and the goal was disallowed.
Within 2 minutes of the restart, the game had turned again. Instead if being 3-1 up, the home side found themselves pegged back to level as Ireson found the net from close range.
It sparked Lanner in to life as we suddenly found our mojo and played some of the football that we know we are capable of. Ireson scored his second and the completed his hatrick heading home a corner (although Hicks trued to claimed it, he was clearly over the line when it hit him)
The was still time for a fifth as Wright ventured forward and struck from distance. I'm sure he won't claim it was his finest strike but it found its way inside the bottom corner after the keeper was stranded as his knee gave way.
Not our finest performance but we got the job done and travelled back down the A30 with the 3 points.
