Grampound 3-2 Week St Mary (after extra time)

Grampound should have had the game sewn up at half-time after having at least half a dozen gilt-edged chances but went into the break 0-0. Grampound eventually took the lead when Dai Moseley headed them ahead, but a defensive mix-up allowed the visitors to draw level soon after. Shane Weeks looked as if he had won the game when he scored for Grampound with 10 minutes remaining, but Week St Mary again took advantage of some poor defending to draw level with just a few minutes left. The game could have gone either way in extra time but the winner came from Andy James, Grampound's usual reserve team goalkeeper, after he had been on as a sub for just a couple of minutes, 5 minutes from the end of extra time, finishing off a good move from at least a yard.

North Hill 1 Sticker Reserves 4

Sticker kicked off their junior cup campaign at a wet and windy North Hill. As per usual manager Warren arrived hungover, Mike Hawke arrived late and Ben Vian turned up with a head the shape of a 50 pence piece. On arrival at the ground the player were met with conditions that could only be described as treacherous. The pitch looked a good one though, so it would be crucial for both sides to keep the ball down under Hurricane Hector as it blew from left to right across the ground.

Warren resisted the urge to start the impressive ‘weasel on the wing’ Dan Oliver and instead favoured Joe Higman wide right, a good decision that would prove to be. Carl Cox made his debut up top with Bullock, who now seems to have had more partners this season than Dan Foard (absent again today) on a good night out!

After shaking hands with everyone in the ground (part of the FA’s RESPECT campaign I believe), the game got underway, with Sticker settling nicely and passing the ball around well against their higher leagued opposition. However, as is standard procedure, Sticker gave North Hill the opening goal. A corner fizzed in from the left eluded everyone and was tapped in from close range by the home striker, shocking defending once more by Gary Warren’s charges.

Sticker were unfazed by this early setback, both Bullock and Cox looking dangerous, supported well by Dan Jarman and Mike Hawke (who is now just 364 days from the big 30!). The North Hill goalkeeper was then perhaps lucky to go unpunished for handling the ball outside the area, Bullock lashing the resulting free kick well wide. Cox then missed a glorious chance, firing wide from 2 yards with the goal at his mercy, he was to make amends though, sliding a perfect cross over for the alert Joe Higman to steal in at the far post and equalise for the visitors.

For the rest of the half Sticker were in the ascendancy, and deservedly went 2-1 when Cox scored a low drive from the edge of the area following good work form Jarman and then Hawke. The only down side of an otherwise good half for Sticker was an injury to Bullock who twisted an ankle and was clearly in some discomfort. Half time, North Hill 1 Sticker 2.

Sticker began the second half as they had ended the first, attacking the home goal. Decent opportunities came and went with Bullock, Cox and Higman all denied in slightly unorthodox fashion by the home keeper. Paddy Talen was a key influence down the left as Sticker tried to put the game beyond their hosts, who had a couple decent efforts themselves, the impressive number 8 shooting just over from 25 yards with keeper Dowrick beaten.

Sticker did make it 3-1, a well worked short corned by Bullock and Cox led to a cross that wasn’t dealt with by the home defence, Danger Vian popping up with a tap in to put the game beyond doubt. With this in mind, Warren replaced Bullock with Oliver and young Welsh under 21 international Barry Jones came on to make his debut in place of Matt Dowrick. Oliver lived up to his ‘supersub/weasel on the wing’ status by scoring with his first touch of the match, once more Mike Hawke the provider. Hawke then went on a dazzling run, beating 3 players before scuffing a tame shot straight at the home keeper.

The referee, who was impressive all afternoon, then brought an end to the match. Sticker deservedly winning 4-1. Thanks must also go to the pub in North Hill, The Racehorse, for the excellent hospitality provided after the match.

Sticker: C Dowrick, J Rogers, P Talen, S. Heap, F Ifty Pencehead, J. Higman, M Dowrick (B Jones), M Hawke, D Jarman (R Jerome), C Cox, M Bullock (D Oliver )

Man of the match: Joe Higman, impressive throughout.
