Pendeen Res 2-2 Cornish New Boys

Pendeen played some really good football, and with CNB's none existant midfield in the first half we were lucky to come out with the draw.

Pendeens striker was outstanding all afternoon, had our whole team beaten with his speed and our team ain't that slow. The first half was Pendeens and they deserved to go in half time 1-0 up.

The ref didn't have the best of games. He missed two Pen's for Cornish New Boys but missed a number of other things all over the park for both sides. All in all a good game of football 2-2 prob a fair result. Thank you Pendeen for a good game of football, I very much enjoyed my saturday afternoon. One other thing don't you ever have good weather down there, thats our third trip to your pitch and it's been horrible every time! Gaff CNB

Jubilee Cup 1st Round

Newlyn NA 3 - 2 Camborne School Of Mines AET H/T 0-1

Newlyn were pushed right to the wire by SOM, who were undoubtedly the best side we have faced this season.

SOM started the better side, and deservedly went in front around the 20 minute mark, with their striker converting a spectacular over-head kick.

After a sluggish start Newlyn got back in the game and began to create some chances; but for some woeful finishing, they would have gone in at half-time level, but instead trailed 0-1.

Against the wind, Newlyn began to take control but still couldn't find the breakthrough. SOM were quick on the break, and a great save from Pete in the Newlyn goal prevented them from wrapping up the tie. Seth Mitchell (unbeaten in a Newlyn shirt) then had a header which smacked the SOM crossbar. It looked like it wasn't going to be Newlyn's day.

After 60 minutes Newlyn made a double substitution, bringing on Callum Mitchell and Daniel Jackson in search of the equaliser. They continued to create the chances but the SOM keeper produced some outstanding saves. With barely any time remaining Newlyn adopted a 2-4-4 formation, and won a corner kick with a minute on the clock. Sub Mitchell's cross was met by Adam Strowger's head and Newlyn were back in the game.

This knocked the wind out of SOM's sails, and Newlyn pressed on in the extra-time. Strowger added his second and 33rd of the campaign, before Jackson struck a superb volley to make it 3-1. Skipper Louis Vanhinsbergh then hit a wonder strike from 25 yards that bounced back off the bar.

It was backs against the wall in the second half of extra-time, particularly after SOM scored almost immediately from the restart. However, The Crabs prevailed and held out until the end.

A proper cup tie played in great spirit, with both teams playing good football in adverse conditions. The ref also did a good job.

Good luck to SOM for the rest of the season, and we look forward to both league games against each other we are yet to play.

A battling, spirited performance from the Crabs.

West Cornwall 1 - 1 Storm Reserves

Not a good day at the office for West Cornwall, very below par and missing a few players, Storm were the better team and probably deserved to edge it. Neither team really looked dangerous in front of goal but Storms build up play was impressive. Matt Reynolds opened the scoring in the 2nd half, forcing the ball in from close range after the Storm keeper had mis-handled. Storm quickly equalised with a neat finish, if we had held on to the lead for a while longer we could have held out but it would have been a undeserved win.

All in all, not a bad point after playing so poorly.

sennen 1 v chacewater 4

p jackson.

sennen lost the opportunity to close on the league leaders,and with it any chance of winning the league.

chacewater deserved their win.were well organised,hard to break down,the scoreline could have been worse

chacewater missed a penalty,but sennen had their chances,but could not take them.

the moral of the story..if you don't score..you dont win...if you defend badly..you get caught out....

good luck to chacewater,,though watch out for newlyn they are in good form.

sennen performance :(

ref :angry2:

Thanks Norry.

From the report that i was given,Chacewater knew that they had a very tough encounter on their hands but for various reasons travelled with only one substitute (would have liked three for such a hard match) and the players responded with a very good performance.

We had the advantage of the wind in the first half and went in only 2-1 up although,as you say,we missed a penalty.

Second half,a brilliant save from our keeper kept the lead and gave the team confidence to go on and score a couple more goals.

Good luck for the rest of the season apart from our Jubilee Cup match in a few weeks time,of course. :D

I have always said that Newlyn would be right there at the end of season and the league table shows that they are the favourites so we now have to rely on them dropping points somewhere.

Yeah our attitude is a bit better now and we have people starting to play better too, which is a good thing. Not sure which players he was talking about because most of the lads played really well. The guys up front looked dangerous throughout and everyone else battled well to get the ball to them.

Robartes next week will be another tough test for us but fingers crossed we play like we did Saturday!
