Newquay 3 v St Ives 0

Palmer 2, Trethewey 1

A windy game. Newquay tried to play for 90 minutes and deserved to win. Another good win and another clean sheet. We have only conceded 2 in the league all year (but 7 in the cup at Illogan !!!).

I felt St Ives ruined the game with constant harrassment of the ref and officials. It was embarrassing. There were both clear decisions and some close decisions to be made. We accepted everyone made against us. They surronded and abused the ref and linesmen over every single decision and it ruined the enjoyment. It certainly effected their concentration and we caught them napping for all three of of our goals which we took very well.

I am sure St Ives will be looking for revenge in the return match. Lets hope there's no wind to ruin that one !

Perranporth 1-4 St Day

St Day goals from Adrian 'Goal Machine' Hart 2, Perran 'Kanchelskis' cooke, Lee 'runs all day' duffield.

St Day welcomed back the services of Danny Watts who has decided to come back to the club which has given him the best times of his footballing career so far. The visitors opted to go against the very strong wind in the first half, a decision which proved to be a very good one by the end of the game. Perranporth started the game well creating a few chances but unfortunatley none of them found the target. It wasn't until midway throught the first half that Perranporth had a shot on target, it came after St Day had failed to clear the ball with Perranporth forcing the defence into a rare mistake, the ball fell on the 18yd line and a Perranporth player cooly swept a shot past the despairing keeper into the bottom left of the goal. 1-0. St Day to their credit their and never say die attitude started to put the pressure on the Perranporth defence and were unlucky not to score in the dying seconds of the first half when a far post header from adrian hart was blocked by a defender. HT 1-0

In the second half it was St Day's turn to pile on the pressure and within 10mins of the restart the Saints were level through Adrian Hart who converted a corner from close range after the ball seemen to deceive everyone in the box, that took Harts tally to 20 for the season.(1-1). Goal number 21 for the season for Hart came after some good work by Perran Cooke who worked an opening and unselfishly squared the ball to hart who thumped his shot past the keeper giving him no chance.(1-2). It was Perran Cooke's turn to get on the score sheet this time after some cool play by the ever improving Joe Crossman who sold a dummy to the Perran defence and played in Hart who returned the favour to cooke by playing the ball into his path and after his initial shot was saved Cooke's persistance paid off as the ball rebounded off his legs and into the net.(1-3). Perranporth to their credit never gave up and created a couple of chances to try and get back into the game but the final goal saw off any real threat of a comeback. A long punt upfield by me saw the Perran skipper try to play a header back to his goalkeeper but the wind was gusty and the flight of the ball deceived him, this left Lee Duffield with the dificult task of lobbing the keeper from 25yards out which he despatched with consumate ease to put the tie beyond the reach of Perranporth.(1-4)

St Day go into the semi-final of the Supplementary cup.

Ref Watch: Two words and one Catchphrase will describe this refferee. Absolutley Brilliant and Does exactly what it says on the tin. His Pre-Match brief was good, he said he would let the game flow and he did, he said he would deal with any perssistent fouling and he did, he said he would not tolerate and bad language and if he heard any of it he would deal with it and he did. And guess what? i Forgot his name Sorry ref.

St Day entertain some team called Truro next week at home. They are supposed to be a good side but i've never heard of them, anyone out there got any info on their squad.. He He He

Yes, Aggie 4-0 against Tinners. First half, wind-assisted Tinners shot insufficiently on target, although Neil Curnow hit post after five minutes. About to go in goalless at half-time, when Tinners no. 5 (him again) unaccountably rolled on touchline like spaniel smelling badger droppings and then hurled himself at kneecaps of player taking throw-in. Result: unmarked bloke in middle, 1-0 Aggie. Frustrating ? Yeah, happens every week. Demoralising for the grown-ups too.

Second half: ball back off bar, close range header 2-0, Tom Benney and Justin Andrew later on. Better team won on the day. Young St Just subs did well in ten man side after uncharacteristic ramming of amiable character's fist with some Aggie bloke's head. Tried to play some football in the gale, no complaints.
