A brilliant away win for Truro against a Bracknell team that has had a long series of consecutive wins. Goals shown as being scored by Greenslade (2) and Neal.

With both Weston-super-Mare and Chesham dropping points it's been a very good day for City.

What a result for Truro, puts a bit of breathing space between 3rd place Bracknell and 4th place Chesham (they will be hoping that Parkway pull off another Tuesday night away special when they go there in midweek).

Sounded like a job well done for Parkway with a 4-0 win over Harrow today. A potentially tricky game on a difficult pitch against a team scrapping for their lives in the relegation zone (from a selfish point of view, i want to see them and Hendon survive) . Goals from Dan Rooney, Ryan Lane, Adam Carter and an OG saw them nudge close to the 50 point mark, which should see them safe in this league. Eyebrows may have been raised by some (including myself) when 35 year old Carter was brought back into the squad, but he showed why Lee Hobbs made this decision with, what sounded like, a well taken goal (his first in his debut at step 3 level incidentally). Doesn't auger well for Tom Bath's long term future at Bolitho though that he was subbed off to make way for him. Ben Seymour missing today, and reportedly being a doubt for Tuesday's match, would have been his chance to impress up front.

With the highly impressive Harry Lee being recalled to Exeter last week, wonder if Parkway will be using dual registered "cover" keepers to fill this position for the last 10 games of the season. Jack Arthur (Crediton) played on Tuesday, Jordan Duffey (Saltash) today. Will be interesting to see who wears the number 1 shirt v Chesham on Tuesday night with both these teams in league action.

A very good win it seems for Tavi on Saturday. After a torrid time, I think that is 4 wins in 5 games and now in a play off spot, leapfrogging Bashley in the table. Astounding turnaround and debut season in the SL. Plenty of twists and turns to come.

That said, I doubt Tavi could manage another step up at this point.

Not surprised with 2 teams on it every week. Was worse last season 

Given the rain that fell in the Plymouth area last week, the fixture against Harrow would probably not have got played in similar conditions 12 months ago.

As the late, great Older said on here previously, newly laid pitches need 2 full growing seasons to bed in. This is the 2nd since Bolitho was re layed, so it is only going to get more resilient with time. Expect that repair work and improvements will commence as soon as the last ball is kicked in April. Of course, long term it needs to go back to 1 team using it (any official word on where Truro will be playing their home matches in 2023/24?).
