  • Dave Deacon changed the title to RESULTS - Saturday 13 January 2024

This was a poor performance from Newquay but they had 6 players out so where disjointed and struggled ,no Price , Saunders ,Cole ,Fallens and it showed in there performance . Callington went 2-0 up with fine goals from Kieron Prescot who scored after fine team play and the 2nd by Pritchard Lee who just waltzed through a static Newquay defence who where playing statues ,Newquays defence just opened up they badly miss Matt Saunders Harry Downing needs his right hand man back the 2 young full backs struggled today .

Into the 2nd half  Newquay did play better lots of niggly fouls from both sides which the ref handled well i think Callington goalie James Montgomery didnt have his 1st save to make until about the 70th min even Cam Turner passes where going 😊astray

 mom for Newquay Josh Evans mom for Callington best player on the pitch Tarran Goodright hope Newquay get some of there players back for the Semi Final but whoever they get it will be a hard match

Last season's Burngallow Park fixture between these two teams - won 5-3 by Penzance - was an absolute belter. The 2023-24 version was not.
Hat-trick hero of that 2022 encounter, Rolandos Samnauskas, was handed the opportunity to repeat the feat with a rare start in the central striker’s berth due to the continued absence of Tyler Tonkin. But, from the moment the Lithuanian frontman, running on to an early Silas Sullivan through ball, was denied by Ethan Elwell, one sensed it might be a frustrating afternoon for forwards. 
Kam Collins hit the woodwork and Jacob Trudgeon, Charlie Willis and Archie Reynolds all went close as Penzance hammered repeatedly at the Sticker door. “In the first 35 minutes we should have been comfortably in the lead,” rued Magpies manager Ashley Waters. “The Sticker keeper produced great saves and we were left frustrated.”
The half ended for Penzance with concerns at the other end of the field. Experienced defenders Alfie Turner and Mark Vercesi both retired injured, replaced by teenagers Ollie Butler and Charlie Palmer, the latter making his first team debut after some impressive performances captaining the Under-16s.
Gareth Ireson became the afternoon’s second Penzance debutant when replacing Samnauskas on the hour. The ex-St Day midfielder fired over some excellent crosses from the right, the best of which Trudgeon was unlucky not to convert. But, on balance the second half belonged to Sticker. Substitute Ovo Ememerurai was particularly menacing down the left and Magpies keeper Will Trenoweth had to be at his acrobatic best to maintain parity.
“The introduction of 16 year old Palmer and his performance were massive plusses,” concluded Waters.  “We’ve come away with a clean sheet and a point. It could have been a pointless trip but for two unbelievable saves from Trenoweth. Overall, it was another gritty performance from this young and improving team.” 

Sticker: Ethan Elwell, Sam Bray, Isaac Varga, Connor Cooke, Mickey Rowles-Jane, Lewis Clapham, Jake Nancarrow, Rich Edworthy, Dan O’Hara, Alfie Flack, Josh Margetts. Subs: Ovo Ememerurai, Taeler Chapman, Jack Ham, Paul Cox, Connor Clarke

Penzance: Will Trenoweth, Archie Reynolds, James Butler, Mark Vercesi (Charlie Palmer 44), Alfie Turner (Ollie Butler 34), Silas Sullivan, Jacob Trudgeon, Kam Collins, Rolandos Samnauskas (Gareth Ireson 63), Darryl Richards (Michael Fitchett 69), Charlie Willis. Unused sub: Ashley Mead
Referee: Shaun Edge
Assistants: Stuart Bowden, Leigh Michael

Press Release from Graham Hambly

Ivybridge Town Football Club


Ivybridge Town 2, Cullompton Rangers 0

JACK Alexander continued his current scoring form with a second successive double strike as Ivybridge Town completed a 2-0 home victory over Cullompton Rangers at Erme Valley on Saturday (Jan 13).

The goal brought Alexander’s tally to 12 for the season following his double in the previous week’s 4-0 away win over Newton Abbot Spurs.

He opened the scoring in the 36th minute with a shot from just outside the penalty area after excellent work by Chris Wright.

Alexander was on target again two minutes later when leading scorer Luke Forward cut in from the left and unselfishly provided the pass for Alexander to fire home from close range.

Ivybridge remained on top from that stage and might have added to their score in the second half with substitute Jacob Smelt twice hitting the bar while visiting goalkeeper Will Davies pulled off some smart saves, including one from Bailey Gamble that was heading for the top corner of the goal.

Gamble came on as substitute for midfielder Owen Raven after 65 minutes and made a favourable impression. He is in his early twenties but showed the composure of a far more experienced player. Apart from his shot to test Davies, he also made a vital contribution at the other end with a goal line clearance and kept the ball moving with some excellent passing and calming influence.

The standard of the players coming off the bench underlines the quality of the Ivybridge squad.

They included new signing Sean Thomson from Torpoint, who replaced Rio Daly in an attacking midfield role ten minutes into the second half.

Joint manager Wayne Gamble said that Thomson had been signed with a view to Ivybridge playing at a higher level next season, adding: “You can see that he is going to fit into our team really well. He is a massive signing, looking to the next step above as well.

“We have got him six months earlier than we would have expected. He will find his feet and come out of the box flying next season.”

Gamble admits that the first team squad is well staffed at the moment. He said: “You could say we are overloaded with 22 boys at training. But then we have people away on holidays, injuries and suspension.”

Absent from the squad on Saturday was influential midfielder Dane Hewings, who is serving a three-match ban and will also miss the next home match against Axminster.

Gamble was pleased to see Alexander collect a couple of goals, explaining: “He may not have scored so many goals but deserves credit for a number of assists. Now he is showing a rich vein of form with four goals in the last two games.”

The man of the match award went to skipper and central defender Scott Pocock with Gamble explaining: “I thought our defence was absolutely brilliant. Scott kept us talking with a real captain’s performance.

“When the chips were down, he got us all nicely compact, making sure everyone was in position. He showed his proper qualities.”

Saturday’s win over Cullompton was the fourth in a row for Ivybridge, starting with a Boxing Day triumph at Elburton.

They will look to continue that sequence with a home match against Axminster on Saturday (Jan 20). Ivybridge have a score to settle in that game as Axminster knocked them out of the league cup with a 1-0 victory at Erme Valley on December 16.

Gamble says: “This will be a different game from the cup match. Our approach will be completely different with different personnel. We have had a good run from Boxing Day onwards, winning four out of four with some tricky games, and will look to continue that run.”
