Press Release from Graham Hambly

 Ivybridge Town v Bishop’s Lydeard, match postponed.

 Waterlogged pitch

 A THIRD successive postponement left Ivybridge Town with another blank weekend when their South West Peninsula League match at home to Bishop’s Lydeard on Saturday (March 2) was called off on Friday afternoon.

The match has been re-arranged for Wednesday April 17 with a 7.45pm kick-off.

This latest rain-off follows similar postponements of the home match against Okehampton and an away trip to Bridport.

The last fixture completed by Ivybridge was their 1-0 win at Torrington on February 10 and they now face a run of four successive away fixtures, starting with a visit to second placed Crediton on Saturday (March 9) in a match which could have an important bearing on the East Division promotion race.

That game will be followed by trips to Stoke Gabriel, Bridport and Teignmouth, all of which are re-arrangements following earlier postponements.

The next home match for Ivybridge will be the “Ground Hop” clash at home to Dartmouth on Easter Saturday, March 30, with a 6.30pm kick-off.

That promises to be a well-attended fixture with a number of enthusiasts taking in a total of seven games over three days. Ivybridge are planning to publish a special souvenir programme to celebrate the occasion.

The “Ground Hop” starts with a match between Honiton and Sidmouth on the Thursday evening. Then come three matches on Good Friday: Torrington v Crediton (11.30), Torridgeside v Okehampton (3.0) and Holsworthy v Bude (7.0).

The Saturday matches also feature Liskeard v Dobwalls (11.30) and Elburton Villa v Bovey Tracey (3.0).

Harrison and I made the trip to Sticker this afternoon. 
First off, I’ve read many people complementing the pitch at Sticker and I have to say, it is deserved. The pitch looked great and held up well over the 90 minutes. Fair play 👏🏻👏🏻

The match was played in decent conditions, with just the one downpour during the game which only lasted 5 minutes or so. There was a biting chill in the wind however but that didn’t stop an entertaining match. 
Bude getting the better of the 1st half with the wind at their backs. They dominated possession and attempts at goal. They went in at halftime a goal to the good and deservedly so. 
In the second half, as you would expect in the conditions, Sticker started the stronger and played quite a bit of the opening 20 mins or so in Budes half. Unfortunately for them, the didn’t really trouble the Bude goal. 
Bude worked their way back into the game and scored another couple as just reward for their efforts as they began to regain a bit of control. 
A good watch for the fans, played in great spirit and a fair result in the end. 
Good to see Bude winning again and a word for the Sticker lads who continued to try and play football and fought till the final whistle.

No good to see for Sticker! 😀👍

I don't understand that comment or possible merit. Have you been on the shandies at Mousehole? Bude were the better team, took chances and won the game. Discipline was not an issue, relatively straight forward for the officials I'd say.

Credit where its due Bude may have turned a corner or maybe the people banned are the ones that cause the issues and with out their influence they are actually a well behaved team there comes a time for any team where they identify weaknesses and deal with them if discipline is an issue and they appear to be realising it this could be the start of a clean last few weeks of the season.they do get alot of stick on here so deserve the praise

I think it's sarcasm by Dave as everyone assumes it would have been aimed at Bude 😏

After 5 weeks, the Camels finally found themselves back on a football pitch and secured an important 3 points with an away win against Mullion. Camelford had control for the majority, creating several early chances, but struggled to find the back of the net. Mullion, however, looked dangerous going forward, with their attacking unit moving the ball neatly around the pitch, causing Camelford a few problems.

Camelford took the lead around the 25th minute mark as Gusterson and Cardiff linked up well, resulting in a cheeky backheel finish from Cardiff that beat the onrushing keeper.

The first half ended in chaos for Camelford, going into halftime 2-1 down. The first moment came from a short back pass, leaving Colwill stranded and giving the Mullion striker an open net. The second came from an off-the-ball incident, resulting in a Mullion penalty that was neatly converted.

Camelford started the second half strong, scoring within 20 seconds. A tidy ball from the right side was met by Gusterson, who stroked it into the bottom corner. Camelford pushed for a third goal, which they got with 15 minutes to go. Cam Hutchinson scored from a free-kick that somehow found its way past the Mullion keeper, who seemed to have it covered.

The game played out like a basketball match, with both teams searching for another goal, but no real chances were created.

A solid and crucial victory for Camelford!
