Brixham v Liskeard - For unexpected last minute reasons I missed the Fish v Liskeard game. Any reports on  this one. On paper, a  notable win by the (Cornish) Blues!

boys thoroughly deserved that win in tough conditions today against a very good side, from back to front everyone worked there absolute socks off, big win that and into the 🎩 we go

Brixham a very good side, so real character to beat them at Wall Park. Hopefully a Step 5 fixture next season! Thanks for giving a flavour of the day Turk 🙂

Just a shout out to both sides yesterday in the Wendron v St Dennis fixture. Tough conditions but a good game. 
Also to the officials for getting the game played and managing it well. 
And of course to our grounds team for the incredible work they do and did in getting it on and to those who briefed the weather to come and watch.  
Goals came in the final 15mins from Souch and C Young.

After 1 1/2 hours of driving through rain, wind and convincing ourselves the game would be off when we arrived, we got out of the car to light drizzle and a firm pitch!! Sounds bizarre but very true, a big well done to the team looking after Brixhams pitch.

Dylan won the toss and sensibly decided to play into the heavy rain and wind for the first half - good choice. Brixham , a fairly big side, came at us hard and fast for 15 minutes while we were still adjusting to the conditions they were clearly more used to.  We battled really well and dug deep showing we can also battle hard and stay strong when needed, ( not just a quick counter attacking side) and got into the game more creating a few half chances against a driving wind. We got to half time 0-0 which I would have thought was the plan, don’t concede.

Second half you could definitely see a new found belief with the wind and rain now driving us forward, but knowing we’d have to keep playing our way , moving the ball on the ground and not playing over hit passes the wind would carry into touch. From a good move down the left and a deep cross Jarrad Woods calmly slotted the first goal home much to the delight of the large Liskeard followers. We then knew that Brixham would go for it and know they had nothing to loose , they pegged us back for long spells and mid way through the half managed to snatch an equaliser from the penalty spot, a defender getting caught out and the striker coming from his blind side causing a foul. We knew we couldn’t travel all that way home empty handed. The boys stepped up a gear, defence stayed solid, both wingers stretched play and our three workers in midfield worked up and down to ensure they helped the lone DJ up front. I have to say DJ had a tough afternoon up against a big solid back four who didn’t leave him alone all game, but DJ being a poacher, the keeper spilled one decent drive and there he was to poke home the winner on about 80 minutes, much to everyone’s delight. We then shut up shop for what had to be 15 minutes of World Cup style injury time, everyone checking the refs watch hadn’t stopped.

So all in all a great performance against good opposition that gave us something different to think about, we were never going to blow them away, they made us show a steely side to our game, really hard to pick one man of the match as this really was a team performance, and the long drive home felt much better knowing we’re into the next round, thanks Brixham for your great hospitality and good luck for what I’m sure will be a good rest of season.💙

Fantastic report John. Sounds a very good win against what I know to be very decent opposition!
