St Blazey v St Austell


Recommended Posts

Guest Uncle Albert

Blazey were 4-1 up as I walked towards the car in the fifth minute of supposed injury time. Danny Bance was sent off after 12 minutes, but Blazey were by far the superior side.

Word around the ground was that Phil Lafferty has resigned as assistant manager at St Austell and that the players are far from impressed by the leadership of Glyn Rowett.

Perhaps St Austell just had a bad day. Actually, make that a shocker.

Danny Bance was red carded :SM_carton: after only 6 mins for a second yellow. He was warned by the ref that if he continued to walk away (when told to come to the ref) he would be given his second yellow and therefore sent off. His first red was for retaliation to a two footed lunge from Jay Isbell (how that never warranted a card, I will never understand). Great credit to the lads in green & black who took the game to St Austell with only ten men. A fantastic performance by Danny Zalick who played up front on his own for most of the rest of the game after Dominic Richardson was asked to drop back into midfield. Two goals (or was it three?) from Danny and tileless running for the cause. At one time he eluded three St Austell defenders before scoring-class!

15 mins 1-0 Brimming, 22mins 2-0 Zalick, 35mins 3-0 Richardson or Zalick?,40 mins 3-1 Tinsley,86mins 4-1 Zalick, 90mins 4-2 Isbell.

A rare glimpse from St Austell was a fantastic free kick from Jay Isbell in the final minute.

Man of the match Zalick by a mile but a great performance by the 10 men of Blazey :thumbsup:

What a shame, especially after the first few games without defeat it seams Glyn Rowett has been found wanting!! Has the bubble burst already!!

Maybe I just saw them on a bad day. After all, they beat Saltash and Liskeard in previous friendlies.

But they did look all over the place today.

Firstly, what a good match for Phils charity. Im sure he wouldnt have wanted it to friendly and it was fitting it had a bit of bite to the match. A good crowd was there to raise some much needed money for a local charity. Est Att 200+

As for the match its self, it took just minutes to liven up with a bad tackle here, a bit oh handbags there and a red card for Danny Bance just to get things under way. Thats could have been enough to see St Austell go on and win it but St Blazey played very well and took a 3 goal lead. After a shoulder barge was deemed a foul near the half way line, St Austell took a quick a free kick and pulled one back. St Austell pushed harder in the second half and missed a few half chances but it was St Blazey who made it 4-1 with a great solo goal. The best goal was saved till last with a great freekick whick flew in off the post. Final score 4-2.

St Blazey have a final friendly against Camelford on tuesday night.

St Blazey then travel to Newton Abbot for the first league match of the season next saturday. Quite a few car loads of fans already going so good traveling surport will be there to cheer the lads on. :drink:

Thoroughly entertaining game,played Smithy's way but without the humour. Good to see that Town have a useful looking squad that should give a good account of themselves in their division this Year.

St Blazey battled well to overcome the loss of Bancey, especially in the latter stages when St Austell might have made the scoreline look better.

A lesson for all Players: the Ref.was able to accept the crunching tackles but left no alternative when confronted by dissent. Players please note!

Yeah we did have a bad day and didnt deserve anything from the game at all. Maybe the occasion got to us, who knows.

It was also good to see St Blazey supporting the event in the evening in there club house,NOT.

It was also good to hear Glyn Rowett thanked for supplying the trophy, NOT.

It was also good to see the players of St Blazey showing a bit of respect, NOT.

Uncle Albert, we are all behind Glyn and here's hoping to a good season.

Chairman - How much of the gate goes to Smithys chosen charity?

Your right it appears all is not well at st.austell, lafferty left, players discontented, some lapparently ooking to move on, others not getting paid, and yes the so called superstars are getting paid conterary to what they have stated on this forum previously, looks like glyns man management style has carried on from sticker :unsure:

Nanks is an honourable player and if he says the players are all behind the manager, I for one am happy to believe him. But . . .

It seems strange that Laffs walks away on the eve of the new season, having persuaded a number of last season's St Blazey players to move to Poltair.

Perhaps Laffs could come on and explain the reasons behind his decision, to put any rumours to bed before they get out of hand.

He was at the game yesterday, so it would seem unlikely he has fallen out with anybody over his departure.

If a Club or certain persons are having a few teething problems (apparently) i cant see why they have to be asked to come on this Forum and explain themselves,surely its best to let things be dealt internally at the respective Clubs and start the season off ? :glare:

Martini man and Razor - What have you got against Glyn?

Nothing personally Nanks but it just seems odd that before the season has even started with a brand new set-up at St.Austell that the Assistant manager/coach resigns! Doesnt it seem odd to you? Or is there a perfectly simple explanation or is it all untrue!
