Junior Cup

Illogan Res 1, Lanreath Res 3

There must have been some damaged handbags in the dressing rooms after this game!

The result was right but it was a "spirited" game. Lanreath's No 9 ("Arry") was a bit overexcited at times and in contrast the ref stopped the game whilst the home 'keeper had his bootlace tied for him. Yes, really! Game after game I despair about what the game I used to play has become!

After having the bulk of the possession and chances in the first half it took until the 45th minute for Lanreath to break the deadlock. 2nd half and Illogan were kicking down the slope and in keeping with the last few games I've seen, both 1st and 2nd XIs, they fared worse. There was a time when that slope was worth an extra player.

Illogan's No 8 equalised on 59 from the spot and their prospects looked brighter. For 3 minutes. A Lanreath lad attacked the left channel and a shot across the 'keeper made it 1 - 2. On 79, Lanreath looked set to settle the tie with a penalty but it was well saved by Illogan's 'keeper at the foot of his right-hand post. This kick had to be delayed due to an outbreak of handbaggery in the centre circle. Lanreath went down to 9 men temporarily as whilst their centre back was sin-binned, their No 8, already booked, showed his disdain for a referee's decision by kicking the ball far away in a fit of pique. So understandably off he went, not appearing to understand why (perhaps someone will enlighten him later. I just hope he didn't use all the hot water....)

Losing by one goal, the Illogan defence employed the good old "play from the back" malarky and obligingly gave the ball away on the edge of their box. This tactic led to Lanreath's 3rd goal, timed at 90+7. The final whistle blew in the 16th minute of added on time: nice to see Dave Deacon there, whose stopwatch agreed with mine.

Lots of other familiar faces there, considering it was a 2nd team game. Apart from Deaks there were Dave James, B. Manning of this forum, Clive Roberts, Moaner, the Tea Lady (hot choc £1 still) - and so it was an altogether enjoyable afternoon despite the weather. The pitch looked great, by the way so well done Illogan.

Good to see you as well Tom and yes, a second half lasting just over the 1 hour mark! Have to agree Lanreath looked the more dangerous when attacking and deserved to go through. Referee resisted showing his cards early on, but eventually had no choice after both sets of players got a little bit too heated! I saw more sin bins today than I have in all my other games this season!

Mawnan Reserves 0 Probus 1 (Dan Vincent)

Junior Cup

Probus almost conceded inside 15 seconds, when a long ball was missed in defence and the Mawnan striker really should have scored, but his shot was diverted for a corner by Jason Chapman, in goal for the visitors. The next point of note came in the 14th minute, when Probus were awarded a free kick for offside, the referee wasn’t happy where Jason Chapman had placed the ball, so he decided to book him for time wasting, despite the visiting keeper saying he could hear the ref, who was stood in the centre circle. The first chance of note came after 20 minutes when the home striker, Jack Blakeston, shot but Jason Chapman made a great save. Probus felt as though they could have had a penalty, when George Truscott went down, but from my view the ref probably got the decision right. Jason Chapman made another good save from Blakeston, just before the break. Both teams had half chances from corner, but neither keeper was troubled. 0-0 at halftime.

Both teams would have been hoping for improved second half performances. Probus started the better team and had a chance 2 minutes in, when Joe Emmett shot across goal and the ball went just wide. They had another chance 5 minutes later, when a Jeremy Pascoe free kick was won in the air by Dan Vincent, but his header was saved Ian Grant, in the home goal. Mawnan came back and a long throw into the box was allowed to bounce and a home player flicked it on, only for the ball to hit the bar and go behind for a goal kick. Jeremy Pascoe was sin binned for something he said to the ref, when he felt he should have had a free kick, only for the ref to give it the other way. Probus skipper, Sam Bullen, was booked for a foul a few minutes later. With 20 minutes to go, another long throw from Mawnan went into the box, and as a result Jason Chapman made a good save from Blakeston. 2 minutes later and the Mawnan number 10 was booked for a foul. With 15 minutes left, Blakeston’s game was over, as he was sin binned for something he said to the ref, and as he walked off he must have said something else, and according to the ref, Mawnan could make a sub after 10 minutes, but Blakeston would not be allowed to return to the pitch - he did spend a lot of the afternoon moaning, usually at the referee. With 10 minutes left Probus took the lead, when Joe Emmett was fouled on the left hand side, and from the free kick, Dan Vincent hit the ball hard and low and it ended up in the bottom corner of the net. 2 minutes later and the Mawnan number 10 hit the bar from 25 yards and that was the last chance of note in the game. Mawnan pushed forward and had a few free kicks but no real chances of note. 0-1, final score.

Probus will be delighted to get through when not at their best attacking wise, and I’m sure Mawnan will be disappointed, because they had the better chances in the game. It was a scrappy game, in difficult conditions, but at least the match survived the weather. Probus currently have no fixture scheduled for next week, as their planned opponents had their Junior Cup tie postponed today, so that takes precedence next Saturday.

Storm 6 - 1 Pendeen Reserves

Felt like a dominant performance from us today at home after 10 away games in a row.  Just didn't let them get in their stride at all and deserved the win.

Goals from, Captain Tom Ford X3, Colin Manley, Conner Clark and young Harrison Besford with his first goal in adult football secured the win.

Really proud of the lads today after losing last week to the same opponent.  Next challenge is to repeat the performance going forward.

Junior Cup at Mullion. Culdrose started the better and took the lead when they broke through into the Mullion box only for the keeper to slide and take out the advancing forward. The penalty was hit straight down the middle and saved but the rebound went straight back to the taker who finished easily. Both sides had chances, culdrose hit the post from a quick free kick and Mullion clipped the bar before 5 minutes before halftime Mullion broke away and beat the keeper with a lobbed shot from 2t yards. 

Mullion started the better in the second half breaking down the wing and poking the ball in from the goal mouth scramble. Culdrose equalised from a quick throw down the left wing and from then on started to dominate the midfield taking the lead after an hour. A carbon copy break saw the keeper slide and take another forward out. The penalty again being blasted down the middle but despite getting hands to it this time the keeper couldn't keep it out. Ten minutes later Culdrose wrapped up the win against a tiring Mullion team. 

A game played in good spirit and we'll done to both teams for their parts in an engaging cup tie.

St Teath 0-3 Stithians

Stithians faced a trip to St Teath on the minibus which started at Smokey's only to get a call to be pitch needs some work groundsman and players forking pitch breakfast eaten phone call game on. Off we go. Arrive at Teath 1245 boys buzzing onto the game.

First half

Steven Crook Stithians captain kept up his 100 per cent record losing every coin toss this season so we defended against the wind first half.  St Teath started the brighter of the two teams knocking the ball around looking for there front 3 who looked very dangerous but Stithians back 3 of Chapman, Blight, Reeves stood up the challenge. There wingers got in same dangerous positions in wide areas but didn't make most of them. first shot from St teath in 10th minute was saved by Bray in goal straight down his throat. We grew into the game having some good possession without making any chances. Both teams keeping possession well St teath looking for a goal but we're limited with a few long range efforts.  In the 30th minute Stithians had the best chance of game ball was played through to Ryan Kempthorne who raced in on goal but snatched shot wide. St Teath still pushing for a goal had a free kick edge of box straight forward save. 0-0 half time good defensive work against wind.


2nd half

St Teath kicked off looking for the first goal and in the 50th minute raced through on goal but the effort was saved by Bray. Then the deadlock was broken when Howard Vague got the ball nearly fell over twice then scuffed a deflective shot in bottom corner 0-1 to the visitors.  St Teath seemed to be rocked abit and then in the 60th minute a ball from Bale put through Kempthorne to finish past the keeper who was in no man's land.  St Teath came back into it trying to pull one back but we defended it well some good blocks from Barkle and Crook. Then moment of the game 75th minute corner comes in falls to edge of box and captain crook unleashed a left foot strike which stayed at shin height into the bottom corner 0-3. Credit to St teath they kept pushing for a goal to get back into it but Stithians defended really well and they nearly got there goal when a cross was punched off the head of a st Teath player. Then the ref Paul Cackett who had a good game blew for full time. 

Thanks to St teath for the hospitality after the game good bunch of lads wish you all the best for the season

Great win for us solid performance and a clean sheet. In the hat for next round. Was a long journey home with a bunch of piss heads 😂

Div 2 West

New Inn Titans 5 - 2 St Buryan FC

No one can feel hard done by this week. 

New inn, Raced into a 5-0 lead by 50 mins, and then took their foot off the Gas, Allowing St Buryan FC to grab a couple goals in the second half. 
But I think it’s safe to say New Inn were comfortable winners on the afternoons play. 

Johnny Jones with 2, Jack Pacy also with 2, and Jareth Barrington-Smith grabbing the 5th. 

Many thanks to St buryan for making the trip up, a great bunch of lads. 

And Special mention to Official Gary Mayes who was on holiday from Cambridgeshire, stepped in and gave up his Saturday Afternoon, Many thanks.

Falmouth United 5 -2 North Petherwin 

3rd round of the junior cup against a team from the east of Cornwall. I don't know if the mystery of playing some unknown entity is better than playing a team you know well, but we went into the game treating them like a strong unknown side. And the first half was pretty even. We had more possession but really struggled in front of goal. We should have been 2 up with in the first 15 mins but did get the first goal from Striker Hayden smashing home the harder of his of his two shots. North Petherwin played some good football at times but opted for a more long ball game with the wind in their favour. A staggered line at the back ment a long ball found their striker to run on a chip our keeper. The remainder of the first half was very nip and tuck with both defenses doing their jobs well. 
Half time from me was just do what you were doing, moving the ball quick, and just making sure your decision making in the final third was better. 
In the second half, the lads did just that. With the wind taking anything off the ground out of play, the lads moved it well, and we got an early lead second half and Haydens second. The third game shortly after, with a great reverse pass from hayden into the path of Reece Toms to calmly slot in the far corner. A few changes could happen with the game more open, and within minutes of coming on, Cameron Hamshaw got an assist for Haydens hatrick 5th of the season. The 5th goal was a really clever chip from archie Becconsall for over the whole defence for RB Toby Murfin to bring down and smash across goal and in off the far post. North Petherwin never gave up, and their striker got his second with a brilliant take down on the edge of the box and rifling a shot into the top corner. 
A really clinical second half with goals coming from multiple players is great for the squad, and making the 4th round is amazing. 

Best of luck to North Petherwin in the league, and thank you all for coming back to the pub after before your long trip home. 

Man of the match was Hayden Webber for his tireless work, three goals, and an assist. 

No **** of the day as there were no stand-out mistakes today. 

Celebrated like the party animals we are with a night out in town playing giant connect four in the games room the fines tin got another boost after some questionable wagers. 

Penzance seconds next week away a tough game in our bid for promotion.
