Not forgetting the other semi final Chacewater vs Consantine at Chacewater. Pitch got a bit of a battering last weekend, pitch is looking a bit worse for wear in some places other places looking good. Will be working on pitch tomorrow morning will do all we can to get pitch up to a good standard with plenty of sand. Just have to rely on weather now for the time being. Loving this sun will be hoping to keep snow and rain away. Will be a good game two good teams consantine doing very well in there league and chacwater playing well should be a good one, all welcome to come up and watch if your games are called off will be plenty of hot drinks going.

yes a good ref but just be careful in last years area semi final we (portreath)played st keverne with mr rose the ref and he seemed very very biased to the fal-hel side . anyway should be a good game and i believe the winner of this tie should go on and win the area final .

FALMOUTH Athletic welcomed Mining One league side Troon to Dracaena Avenue for this Junior Cup semi-final.

Falmouth got off to a flying start, in front of a crowd exceeding 100 people, when the Troon keeper called for a ball that his defender left for him, only for Nathan Macintosh to dart between them and bravely head past the oncoming keeper.

Several strong challenges were made from both sides in midfield and play was restricted in this area for long periods.

Troon were then awarded a penalty after Kirk Davis was adjudged to have brought down Proctor.

Veteran Shane Richards made no mistake from the spot equalising for Troon. Athletic soon regained the lead when after a good run into the box by Macintosh, who laid the ball back to Ben Ambrose, who curled a sweet shot far from the reach of the visiting keeper. With only minutes of the half remaining, an incident off the ball between Falmouth keeper Toy and Troon’s Richards led to the keeper being cautioned and another penalty awarded to Troon. Again Richards equalised from the spot.

The second half was barely five minutes old when a Glen Jeffrey shot, from fully 30-yards, swerved dramatically in the air and went in off the underside of the Troon crossbar.

Athletic then applied more pressure as Troon players heads started to drop and from a Steve Goggin free kick, Steve Shepherd rose above the defence to powerfully head home Athletics fourth goal.

Minutes later tireless Joe Perrin made a good run into the box and laid the ball off to Lee Miller, who struck a firm shot which the keeper punched to the edge of the box where Perrin volleyed the ball into the roof of the net.

Troon then changed to a 3-4-3 formation and mounted many attacks on the Athletic goal, although none of these led to a shot on target. Richards then made a run into the box and again won his side another penalty, the striker completed his hat-trick of spot kicks.

With time running out on Troon, they put several long balls into the box and when Athletic only partially cleared the ball, Bell had Troon’s next goal, which travelled through a mass of players and into the far corner of the net past the diving Toy.

Straight from the kick off Troon closed Athletic down and put the ball back towards the home goal. With only four minutes remaining an attempted clearance by Davies went for a corner to Troon, from the corner Toy palmed the ball past the far post under pressure, only for Troon to head the ball back across goal and another goal bound header was tipped over the hand of Athletic’s Macintosh.

The referee awarded Troon their fourth penalty of the afternoon and Macintosh was shown a red card for handball despite pleas from Athletic players that Macintosh was pushed.

Richards, with three penalties already under his belt, saw his penalty well saved by Toy and this proved to be the turning point of the game as Athletic, with only ten men, gave a final push to their lone striker Perrin who collected the ball on the half-way line and weaved his way past three defenders, drew the advancing keeper and placed the ball into the far corner of the Troon net.

Lee Jeffrey had an outstanding game in the middle of the park with Coggin and ran Perrin very close for the man of the match award.

Sounds like it was a cracking game! 4 pens though, thats abit weird i have to say. Hats off the Fal Ath for reaching the final though, troon are a very good side and i think falmouth will go on to win it know after beating them. Think the final is going to be a tight game aswell, const have a cracking little side there and play some good football so all eyes on this game!. Does anyone know where the final will be played and a date etc..?
