Newquay v Ludgvan 4-0 h/t 2-0

Newquay dominated this match from the first whistle and the only question to be asked is why it took 35 minutes before Matt Davis opened the scoring,firing in a loose ball following a corner.They quickly added a second following a good move which opened up the visiting defence.

The Ludgvan keeper dived full length to push away a penalty early in the second half before Newquay's pressure told with two further goals.

Can't recall the home goalkeeper having a shot to save through the game.

Defensively Ludgvan defended in numbers and got their tackles in,well organised by John Matthews but they had little going forward and had to attack from deep positions.

I assume that either Grant or Mitch will fill in the missing goalscorers after they recover from their club christmas party.

Crowd about 30.

Good win for St Just on a typically lovely, windless day at Lafrowda Park which eventually could have been by even more. Wendron's youngsters contributed to another really good spectacle and could have scored three in the first 20 minutes. Excellent far-post volley by their number 6 deserbved a goal, but it was not to be. Tom Mannering netted a rebound well for the first, then Andrew Curnow saved a point-bank header from Wendron No 9. Stuart Nicholls made an excellent run from the left hand touchline after riding a tackle , went round another defender and scored from an acute angle. Should have scored a hat-trick: another sequence saw him hit the post and a defender on the line before hitting the third effort against the diving keeper. Both sides hit the bar in the second half...Wendron twice. After a header from Stuart Nicholls, he set up Matt Gendall for a run and finish in the corner for the fourth before a late Wendron consolation from Paul Murray. Another excellent advert for Combo football....the visitors were full of running and never gave up. Well reffed by Chris Stephens....no cards.

St Just play Wendron AGAIN, at Underlane , next week. No repoprt would be complete without an acknowledgement, therefore, of the genius of the fixture compuiter called John Roberts. The Tinners should have been playing Ludgvan according to the original list......guess why Mr Roberts would have wanted to change that !

Newquay 4 - 0 Ludgvan

Ludgvan made a long journey to Mount Wise and hoped to bounce back from their 15-0 defeat last week. Newquay wanted to sustain the momentum after their recent 5-0 victory at St Agnes and the Mount Wise pitch looked in excellent condition given the recent weather.

Newquay made their intentions clear from the start and no fewer than fifteen opportunities were spurned in the opening forty minutes of the game. Newquay played attractive football but lacked a cutting edge in front of goal and Ludgvan put in a much improved defensive performance to keep the game scoreless. It looked like the first half would remain without a goal until a Shaun Lawrence corner from the left fell to the feet of Matt Davis who calmly slotted home from six yards for his second goal of the season.

After the opening goal, Ludgvan heads dropped and Newquay were able to capitalise. A flowing move fell to Orrin 'Brian' Crowle, who worked the ball out of his feet to slot home into the bottom corner for the second goal.

Newquay were disappointed to go in at half-time with a relatively slender lead, however, Ludgvan's defensive efforts meant that they were unable to trouble Newquay goalkeeper James Merrikin in the first half. The second half continued in a similar fashion, Newquay sustained high levels of pressure and were unable to convert a number of chances, including a penalty that was awarded after a Ludgvan defender handled a Michael Rabone strike at goal. Russell stepped up hoping to add to his goal tally, however, the Ludgvan goalkeeper was equal to the strike and managed to turn the ball around the post.

Newquay were able to add to the scoreline when a great ball from Mitchell Stevens found Tom Taylor in space on the right wing. Taylor cut inside and neatly finished first time, sliding the ball past the goalkeeper with an accurate strike into the corner.

Michael Rabone was replaced by younger brother David and within moments he hit a first time volley from distance that the goalkeeper misjudged and the ball lifted up into the top corner for Newquay's final goal of the game. Ludgvan did manage to get the ball into the Newquay net late on, however, play had stopped due to an offside decision. Newquay will be pleased with three points and Ludgvan delivered a much improved performance and must be credited for their continued effort and commitment whilst they go through a difficult period, they gave their all until the final whistle and we wish them well in their pursuit of their first league points this season.

The referee had an excellent game and played the advantage well at times.
