Recommended Posts

premier sixes reserves 5 - 3 st mawgen reserves

st austell reserves 4 - 0 premier sixes, i think thats how it ended

St Austell back to winning ways the final score was 4-0, an evenly contested 1st half with St Austell going in 1-0 up, Came out in the second half a much better team and closed out the game with a further 3 goals.

150% better than last week. Must say that Premier Sixes number 16 was outstanding worked hard in midfield, I was told he was still only 16 but stood out by a mile.

Duchy 2

Grampound 2-2 St Stephen

Grampound two up at the break through goals by Dean Dunn and Dai Moseley and well on top, but allowed St Stephen back into the game in the second half. St Stephen battled well, but scored two very fortunate, joke goals to earn a point which they deserved in the end.

That was Ben Ringrose - he is epic. We weren't at the races today and have had a decent meeting between key players and will be looking to change the formation massively now. Every cloud has a silver lining and it's good to get that out of the system before the cups begin.

Another defeat to St Austell, but I have to say that of all the teams we have ever played since we formed St Austell once again showed what a top bunch of guys they are both on and off the park. Always a pleasure (bar the results) to play you fellas.

Just like to thank premier sixes for a great game of football yesterday. As coops said our performance was alot better than last week and lets hope we can keep the good performances going. Although we have beaten premier sixes 3 times now the games have always been tight and good to play in. Good luck for the rest of your season boys and looking forward to the away leg.

Bodmin Saints 6 Polperro 0

Bodmin thoroughly deserved this one, as we weren't at the races at all. Polperro weren't helped by injuries to key players, and both regular strikers missing, but that's no excuse, wouldn't have beaten a far superior Bodmin side even if we'd been at full strength - a very good side with Billy McKellar still pulling the strings, and scoring a cracking overhead kick. Young Liam Ames up front far too good to be playing at that level of football too.

Good bunch of lads too, a credit to Duchy football.

Buoyed by last weeks late, late victory, Gary Warrens charges went into this home fixture in good spirits. Most of the pre match spirits, vodka, JD, Bacardi and Jagermeister were consumed by half the team at GW's golf day on the Friday, but no one seemed too concerned as they were still blind drunk by the time K.O time came. Speaking of still drunk, it is worth mentioning that Patrick Vander Talen, who was heard to say "Im not drinking tonite" on the Friday afternoon, turned up just shy of Kick Off looking like the definition of a drunken mess, fines were dished out accordingly!!!

The skipper, perhaps still feeling the ill effects of the previous days exertions (his team were the eventual WINNERS of previously mentioned golf day), won the toss and elected to bat on a bright sunny day, then remembered it wasnt cricket and chose to kick off.

Within 3 sloppy first half minutes the Sticker players were awoken from their hangovers, smart work down the left where Jason Rogers was left exposed, led to a low cross easily turned in by the visiting number 9. The worst possible start for the home side, who now faced perhaps the biggest test of charcter to date.

And respond the home side did, Bullock, Hawke, Knowles and Foard all creating half chances as Sticker began to dominate the game. It was then without surprise when Sticker did equalise, the only surprise was that it was Mike Hawke who notched his first of the season!!! Smart work down the left from Foard slipped in the mercurial rattler drinker to beat 2 men and then the keeper from 10 yards. The high five that went wrong just after left Bullock nursiong a bobby lip for the remaider of the game!!! Sticker 1 Callington 1, game on!

The game ebbed and flowed for the remainder of the half and 3 moments probably decided the outcome of the match. In the 5 minutes preceding half time, home keeper Chris Dowrick produced 2 fine saves, the first from lanky centre forward Lucas Skop (who spent most of the afternoon wriggling around in Ben "Danger2 Vians pocket), the second one of the best saves witnessed at Burngullow park, a fine right handed tip over from a 20 yard curler that he somehow managed to tip on the bar, Jason Rogers in smartly after to clear the danger. The 3rd and final moment of the half owed more to good fortune than skill as skipper Bullock attempted a cross from wide right that took a wicked deflection and looped in over a stranded visiting keeper, Bullock himself looked almost too embarrassed to celebrate as the home side reached the interval 2-1 to the good.

All smiles for manager Warren at the break as he encouraged his charges to cintinue the good form shown and build on the start that they made. The side took this mentality out onto the field and within 2 minutes of the restart it was 3-1, a fine measured pass from Jarman to Bullock who hit the ball high into the back of the net from 10 yards, scoring a 'proper' goal and not a fluke!!! This seemed to deflate the visitors, who went further behind 5 minutes later. Matt Dowrick releasing Bullock down the right to square the ball to the onrushing Knowles to drill low under the keeper effectively ending the game as a contest.

The visitors from this point lost their heads. In an age where respect is the word from the FA Callington seemed to lose all discipline. Bookings first for dissent, then foul play did little to help their cause with the official. Then, when the manager took his protestations too far, ha managed to get himself in the book from the touchlines. This prompted howls of derision from the travelling support, both of the ladies watching were most appalled as decisions continued to go against their team.

Sticker, to their credit, continued to focus on the football, with Hawke and Jarman dominant.Jarman then scored the goal of the game, teed up nicely by Knowles he struck a firm drive from 20 yeards into the top corner, prompting mass celbrations led by Brother in law Hawke and "50 peance head" Vian. Knowles himself would then round off the home scoring with a neat finish after being released by a now semi-sober Talen who replaced Foard at half time when Foard was, literally, unable to carry on. Perhaps a day of golf, booze, dancing and late night mountain biking followed by a night on the ranches sofa had taken their toll!!!

Their was time for one final goal, Callingtons international star Skop finally finding a way out of Vians pocket and past Heap before finsihing neatly past Dowrick. At the final whistle a tired home side were left to reflect on another 3 points gained as their season gains momentum. Callington had their left back sent off after the game for speaking out of turn, then both female fans (one yielding a threatening looking birthday cake) were almost asked to leave the ground by a referee who had heard so much of their moaning all afternoon it must have felt like he was married to the pair of them!!!

Man of the match: Chris Dowrick - Crucial saves!!
