St Cleer 4 Saltash 3 DL1


Recommended Posts

Champions of Div 2 St Cleer started their new campaign in Div 1 with a win against a very good young Saltash side 4 - 3. St Cleer introduced new signings Nick Trewarthen, Mark Jeffery, Ryan Thorogood Ryan awarded Man of the Match) and Colin Wilson making their debuts and all settled in very well. With captain Lee Collins driving the team supperbly it was St. Cleer who came out of the blocks like a stallion on heat! With in 2 minutes Collins opened with a penalty following a handball, with in 4 minutes it was 2 nil, a good passing move involving the whole team led to a David Wade close range effort. Saltash slowly gained thier composure and started to come more in to the game playing some good football, eventually gaining a penalty after David Bowman was adjuged to put his arm infront of the attacker. Tony Jane duly converted the spot kick, Saltash equalised close to halftime. The second half started as did the first with both sides enjoying good possession and playing great football, however it was Saltash who took a 3 2 lead. A change in tactics by St Cleer proved to be a good idea, as St Cleer started to dominate the midfield, eventualy following good approach work Colin Wilson pounced on a loose ball to make it 3 3. With 8 minutes remaining Saltash failed to clear a corner and David Wade was on hand to smash home the winner. The St Cleer team should be proud of their performance WELL DONE, I know I was. This game was also a great advert for Duchy football.

Team- Jez Pomferet, David Bowman, Nick Trewarthen, Mark Jeffery, Ray Wall, Karl Saunders, Ryan Thorogood, Lee Collins, Jamie Coates, Colin Wilson, David Wade, Jon Niblett, Darran Harvey, Jamie Hampshire
