Took in the Falmouth 0-3 Truro match.

Second half goals from George Newton followed up by added on time strikes from Josh Marcellis and Jacob Grange means that Truro extend their lead at the top of the West division to four points over Mousehole having now played a game more.

However City had to work hard for their win against a Falmouth side who never stopped but a glance at their goals tally in the table suggests they find it tricky to score goals and that was the case this evening.

Spot on Dave, a good enjoyable competitive game in front of a decent crowd. 
Falmouth lacked creativity, in fact never had a shot on target. 
Fair play to Truro their defence is very solid, hence they don’t concede much. 
They always looked more likely.

Saltash United Reserves 0-2 Torpoint AFC Reserves

Great to be back in the action so quickly after the weekend. A freezing cold night in Saltash, especially in the dugout and that seemed to reflect the first half on the pitch.

Torpoint initially started brightly, moving the ball and the Saltash team around but without creating any real clear cut opportunity. Haslam and Robbins continually got onto the ball but we're unable to find the runs of Small and Payn through the Saltash bodies. The best chance of the opening half fell to Small who lifted his effort over the keeper but over the bar as well. Saltash looked dangerous through the direct play of skipper Tapp and the energetic play of Cairo.

With Robbins picking up a first half booking, he made way early in the period for Balde whos physical nature added another dimension to the game and he helped lift the energy for Torpoint. This was epitomized when Haslam hassled the ball back before finding Small on the halfway line, his pinpoint cross field pass was neatly controlled by Larsen who chipped back to skipper Taylor on the edge of the box to lift over the defender before lashing past the keeper with his left foot. Reminiscent of Dele Ali against Palace a few years back. To help maintain the energy and stretch Saltash, Stearnes was introduced from the bench for J.Manuel and his impact was felt immediately. With Torpoint winning the ball back in the middle of the park, Payn released Stearnes to fire past the onrushing keeper in his 1v1 and effectively kill the game. Coutts and Cullerton were introduced for their discipline and experience to see the game out with the back line of T.Manuel, Murray and Bouch happily winning their headers for the remainder of the game.

Was great seeing some familiar faces at Saltash and we're looking forward to welcoming them to The Mill in a couple of weeks time.

MoM: Tom Manuel.

Callington 1 Doms 2

A second away derby in the space of a few days for the first team last night. 

A series of opening corners and free kicks went begging before a Callington player got through dangled legs at the other end, a snap shot across goal ended up being turned in at the far post. We continued to have more of the ball and a number of set pieces, the closest we came was when Kieran Ryall’s free kick came back off the cross bar as we went in 1-0 down at the break. 

Into the second half and Callington came close to doubling their advantage when a hanging ball from the left looked like it was going to loop in but also came back off the bar. The home side were then awarded a penalty around the hour mark and again Jamie Blatchford stepped up at a crucial moment to keep Pritchard’s effort out. Finally one of the numerous set pieces we had was converted for the equaliser, Callum Brown’s looping header finding the net. The winner came with just over five minutes of normal time remaining. Harvey Barrett resisting the shot inside a crowded box before being able to lay the ball off for Kieran Prescott to drive low into the net. We managed the game through the closing stages to hold out for the three points. 

MOTM went to Kieran Prescott.
