The Duchy League

Welcome to the brand new Duchy league website.

JJ Jones & Sons Duchy Football League - Saturday 10th November 2018

Dobwalls produced some giant killing form knocking Lifton out of the Shoe Boy Duchy League Cup and they go through to a home second round clash with Southgate Seniors. They had to come from two down in the first ten minutes with Lifton scoring through Ben Sims and Liam Cairns. Dobwalls came back to level before half time through Ben Gaynor and Sam Hummagain. Just two minutes from the end with the game seemingly heading for extra time Scott Corson struck to give Dobwalls a 3-2 win.

With the top two in the Premier Division victims of the overnight storm, Sticker took advantage to go top of the division after a 6-0 defeat of St Newlyn East. On a superb playing surface after the last 24hrs of rain Sticker showed their huge potential and class in completely outplaying St Newlyn East. The game started off at a good pace with both sides playing some good football. Newlyn should have taken the lead when a through ball completely beat the Sticker back line but the striker over ran the ball and Sticker’s keeper Lewis Clapham managed to gather and that was the nearest St Newlyn got to scoring. With Adam Cleaves marshalling his defence for the rest of game they were never in any trouble. The turning point came when a through ball for Sticker was just too strong and as it ran through to the keeper he mishandled it and the lively Jack Turner quick as a flash spun around and shot home. Sticker carried on and playing in the same vein were awarded a free kick just outside the box and the very impressive Dan Hocking curled a beauty into the top left-hand corner. The second half commenced with Newlyn now pressing forward with more purpose to try and get something from the game but there was no stopping this quality Sticker team and after five minutes Turner cut inside of the box and lashed in his second goal. It was not long before goal number four came along scored by Jack Boardman and then from the bench new signing Harrison Elliot a rugby league player with a very deft touch set up Finn Pearce to lash home the fifth and then Harrison himself scored a debut goal.

Gerrans & St Mawes United jump out of the bottom two after their 2-1 win at Lostwithiel. James Oakley and Ryan Jarvis scored for GSM with Liam Rooney replying.

St Merryn and Tregrehan Mills provided a Division One clash of great skill and sportsmanship, which was a credit to the division. St Merryn found themselves three down in nine minutes before fighting back to go into half time just one goal behind. A silly goal given away in the early minutes of the second half stretched the visitors lead but again St Merryn fought back with Jack Bray scoring the third of a cracking hat trick. With St Merryn trying to force an equaliser a late breakaway goal gave Tregrehan a 5-3 win. Dean Dingle and Sam Rowse scored a brace apiece for Tregrehan with Tom Foster getting their other goal.

Stoke Climsland were robbed of a place at the top when St Breward’s Karl Croft scored a last minute equaliser. Stoke had led through a Stuart Fort goal and would have gone level on goal difference with St Dominick but for Croft’s late intervention.

Division Two leaders Foxhole reserves lose their grip on top place after losing their first game of the season 2-0 at Tintagel. The hosts played quite well on the day with Myles Harrison and Harley Westlake getting the important strikes.

Lamerton Community take over at the top after a closely fought win at Pelynt. The game stood at one all with three minutes to play. James Barrett of Pelynt trading goals with Oliver Gourd. With a draw looking the likely result Graham Galway stepped up to give Lamerton a 2-1 win and take them to the top.

Gorran had some misfortune with their regular keeper failing to arrive and his replacement having to go off with a back injury, but they had no qualms after being well beaten 5-0 at home by Altarnon. The visitor’s scorers were Jowan Knights with a brace and Adam Porter, Darren Webber and Wayne Smith.

St Minver reserves beat Grampound 3-0. Ben Beesley, Ozzie Beesley and Aaron White were the scorers.

In the only Division Three match to survive, Pensilva came from conceding a goal in the opening minute to St Eval Spitfires’ Jordan Friendship to come back and win 4-1. Sam Rogers equalised in a quite physical first half. Pensilva played much more football after the break with Rogers completing his hat trick and Zak Mitchell getting a goal.

St Anns Chapel put in a second fine performance in consecutive weeks against the Division Four leading clubs and although beaten 5-4 at home by Nanpean, which takes them top, there are signs of better times ahead for the host club. Nanpean raced into a three-goal lead but faced a great fightback from St Anns. Reece Willmott scored a brace for Nanpean with Shaun Trudgeon, Luke Truscott with Jordi Willmott completing their tally. St Anns replied through Luke Brenton, Kieran Wash, Jon Wild and Ryan Lynam.

Tom Hancock hit a hat trick and Dan Hancock a brace as Lifton reserves won 5-2 at Delabole United to move up to second. Luke King and Jordan Blanchard replied for the hosts.

Week St Mary move into promotion contention with another win. Jimmy Shanks scored the only goal of their game at St Mawgan reserves.

JJ Jones & Sons Duchy Football League - Saturday 3rd November 2018

Premier Division leaders overcame a tricky away journey to stay at the top of the division. They won 3-1 at St Newlyn East and were the better team on the day. Mickey Thompson gave them a fifth minute lead with a bullet header. Sam Lawrence restored parity five minutes before half time but the second half in blustery conditions saw the leaders on top with Newlyn unable to trouble the Godolphin goal. Ben Colquhoun and Lee Budge scored to give Godolphin three important points.

Foxhole were close to slipping to their first defeat of the season before an amazing late comeback. They fell behind inside three minutes, the goal from a corner, heavily assisted by the wind. St Dennis reserves added a second in the 15th minute and scored a third again from a corner going into half time three ahead. Aidan Dingle pulled one back with just over twenty minutes remaining. Dingle then guided a header into the corner to further reduce the arrears. Richard Griffin curled a well-taken free kick in for the equaliser and the comeback was fully completed when Ben Bould fired a volley into the top corner to put the hosts ahead. Foxhole were now well in control and Griffin put the result beyond doubt scoring their fifth direct from a corner as they won 5-3. Nathan McGall scored a brace for St Dennis with Callum Oldham their other scorer. Sticker shaded Boscastle 4-3. An entertaining game with seven goals thrown in and both teams contributing to an excellent contest. Sticker took the lead on twenty minutes when Jack Turner crossed for Eddie George to knock home. Boscastle were never that far under the radar and just when it looked as if the one goal would be taken into the second half Matt Pethick glanced in a cross right on the half time whistle. Five minutes after the break Sticker were ahead again with another cross by Turner sliced in by a defender. Turner was giving the visiting defence plenty to think about with his speedy runs and it was he again who sent in the cross for substitute Matt Searle to score. Boscastle were in truth playing into the wind better than Sticker had in the first half and reduced the arrears again on sixty minutes with a goal from Sam Haddy. Back came the home side and replacement Matt Boynton put in an excellent cross for Searle to double his tally. The visitors were still not done and after some sloppy defending Martin Heal knocked in number three in the ninetieth minute.

North Petherwin are off the bottom but still seek their first league win of the season. They were held to a one all draw by Lostwithiel. The visitors went ahead from a disputed penalty converted by Jonny Harris. Walter Medlicott equalised with a thirty-yard shot, but everything else that they threw at Lostwithiel was thwarted by veteran keeper Bill Davies who appears to be getting even better with age.

Veryan swept into an early lead at home to Gerrans & St Mawes United when Derrick Lucas nipped in to score. Shortly after it was 2-0 when a loose ball was hacked into the net by a St Mawes defender. Veryan were rampant and added a third when Andrew Pearce sent a bullet header in off the bar. Veryan missed chances to increase the lead and after the break St Mawes got an early goal back. Unfortunately, they then lost their keeper for making a save outside of his box. Veryan stretched to 4-1 through Sam Bullen and could have had more. St Mawes kept going and got another late goal at the end as the game ended 4-2.

Torpoint Athletic have had a difficult week. Beaten in the Junior Cup last Saturday, they went down 2-0 at St Mawgan to one of their major title rivals. Dan Ball and Bonar Maull scored first half goals for the hosts. In the second half St Mawgan defended against the wind with great skill to keep their rivals out.

Division One leaders St Dominick faced a testing match at St Breward. Kieran Jasper was denied twice by the home keeper as the first half ended goalless. The only goal came in the 57th minute when Liam Bryant broke down the wing and fired in from a narrow angle. Liam Hunn saw a shot cleared off the line and Callum Searle had a 75th minute penalty saved by the magnificent home keeper as St Dominick claimed three crucial points.

Tregrehan Mills were two up at half time at home to AFC Bodmin. Dean Dingle scored the first and Sam Rowse tapped home the second after the keeper had made a good stop to his original header. Tommy Foster scored a third after the restart with Dean Dingle finishing off a good team move for their fourth. Bodmin claimed an 87th minute consolation as they went down 4-1 for a first defeat of the season.

North Hill went one up against high-flying Stoke Climsland before the visitors hit back to win 4-2. Kane Thomas and Scott Martin scored for the young North Hill side, which is growing in confidence as the season goes on. Stoke claimed their win with goals from Phil Burgoyne, Daniel Murdoch and a Stuart Fort brace.

Gunnislake beat Holywell/Cubert Athletic 4-1. Gunnislake’s scorers were Jamie Dewdney, Darren Sambells, Simon Kelly and an own goal. Holywell replied from a Kierren Faulkner free kick.

Queens Rangers continue their troubles with player availability They went down fifteen to nil at St Cleer, the second week running that the hosts had hit this mark. Charlie Coates and Zak Peel each scored four goals with Harry Bartlett adding a hat trick and Connor Stone a brace. Jordan Dennis and Dan Bolitho completed the scoring.

Lamerton Community closed the gap at the top of Division Two to one point following their 3-1 win at Grampound. They didn’t play particularly well in tricky conditions and two of their goals were flukes, but they deserved the win and will settle for that. Daryl Panter, Mark Lewis and Lee Lewis scored for Lamerton with the Grampound reply, also a fluky goal from Mark Wherry.

Altarnon continued their good form with a 2-0 derby win over Lifton. Sam Smith and Brandon Ambrose were the scorers.

Lanivet Inn were impressive in their 6-0 win at Pelynt. Darren Lang and James McNary scored a brace apiece. The scoring was completed by Daryl Stiff and a Josh Pearn own goal.

St Columb Major still seek a first point. They went down 4-0 at Tintagel with Ollie Price, Myles Harrison, Adam Price and Harley Westlake on his debut getting the goals.

The game between St Minver reserves and Gorran ended goalless.

In Division Three Polperro reserves maintained their 100 per cent start with a 5-0 win at Calstock. Anthony Harman scored a brace with Matt Baker, Jordan Powell and Matt McDonough adding a goal apiece.

Leaders Liskeard Athletic thirds travelled to local rivals Pensilva and fought out a goalless draw. The weather conditions proved pivotal. Pensilva had the chances in the first half with Liskeard coming strong after the break but with neither team looking likely to break the deadlock.

Southgate Seniors were 5-2 winners at home to St Eval Spitfires. Both these sides are much stronger at home, so the result could have been anticipated. Will Green hit a brace with Adam Scott, Alistair Blackwell and Jake Harris adding further home goals. St Eval replied through Aidan Tabera and Shane Wade.

Bude Town reserves had a poor day as they were held two all at home by Division Four strugglers St Anns Chapel. The hosts were without some regular players but overall put in a poor performance and didn’t deserve to win. Steve Hackett scored both their goals.

Jordi Willmott scored four goals and Reece Willmott added a hat trick as Nanpean Rovers thrashed St Mawgan reserves eleven nil. Luke Truscott added a brace with their other goals shared between Ash Gilbert and Jack Taylor.

Maxim Garcia and Ben Medland both hit a brace as Week St Mary hit seven without reply at home to North Petherwin reserves, Jake Roebuck, Carn Thomas and James Bradley completed the rout.

Lifton reserves beat Boscastle reserves 3-1. Ben Farrer scored a brace with Dan Hancock completing the home tally. Jason Seldon replied for Boscastle.

Tom Mileham hit a hat trick as Lostwithiel reserves beat Delabole United 7-1. Kevin McCormack, Joe Davidge, Sam Gooch and Mike Sweet completed the home scoring with Paul Menhinick on his debut getting the Delabole consolation.

JJ Jones & Sons Duchy Football League Saturday 20th October 2018

Overnight Premier Division leaders Godolphin Atlantic reserves faced the difficult journey to Boscastle and became the second top three club in three games to drop points there after being held to a two all draw. Rob Heal and Martin Heal scored for Boscastle. Godolphin replied with goals from Jacob Grange and Lee Budge.

Foxhole join Godolphin level on points at the top after a fine 4-2 win at St Newlyn East. Newlyn dominated possession in a good quality and competitive top-flight Duchy match, but the visitors were far more clinical in front of goal. Chris Brown and Lee Reed-Bennett scored a brace apiece for Foxhole with Lewis Dodd and Brodie Mitchell getting the Newlyn replies.

St Dennis reserves went down 7-2 at home to St Mawgan. Ash Taylor scored both St Dennis goals, but a Craig Allen hat trick and a Stuart Harris brace gave St Mawgan a comfortable away victory. The visitors scoring was completed by Chris Jordan and Ollie Morrison.

Sticker reserves won 2-1 at Gerrans & St Mawes United. Jack Turner and Daniel Hocking were the Sticker scorers with GSM scoring through James Fryer with the last kick of the game.

Torpoint Athletic thirds maintain their title challenge thanks to Byron Robbins scoring the only goal of the game at home to North Petherwin.

St Dominick were 5-0 winners over Tregrehan Mills and retain their place at the top of Division One. Kieran Jasper fired just wide in the opening minute a warning of what was to come for the visitors. Harvey Bartlett headed in a 25th minute corner to give St Dominick the lead. It was two, three minutes before half time when Liam Bryant fired home a 20-yard free kick. The second half started in the same fashion with near misses from the hosts and fine saves from the Tregrehan keeper. A good move in the 65th minute saw Alex Caers score the third and five minutes later Jasper struck the fourth from the edge of the area. The scoring was completed when new signing Regan Callender lobbed the keeper.

Stoke Climsland go second with another Stuart Fort hat trick helping them defeat St Cleer 4-2. Jason King was the other home scorer.

St Merryn put in a powerful performance against a depleted Holywell/Cubert Athletic squad hitting five goals without reply. The visitors didn’t help their cause by conceding an own goal inside the first ten minutes but from then on, they were blown by a fine home display. Jack Bray, Sean Blows, Josh Dark and Don Hayward were the host’s scorers.

Queens Rangers gained their first win of the season beating Gunnislake 5-0 with Jack Scott hitting a hat trick. Jamie Seery and Harrie Tilston added their other goals.

St Breward stay in contention following their 4-0 win at North Hill. Dan Couch, Nathan Jasper, Matt Hamley and an own goal take St Breward up to third place.

Saltash United thirds picked up just a second point of the season although all their games have been tight. A two all draw at AFC Bodmin must be seen as their best performance of the season. Joe Rice and Scott Waterfall scored for Saltash with the hosts replying with goals from Sam Pollard and Fraser Robinson.

Foxhole reserves took a 100 per cent record into their home Division Two match against Lifton, hoping to maintain their lead at the top of the division. The hosts started well with Jamie Robinson giving them a 15th lead when he converted a rebound off his own penalty kick. Foxhole lost their way as the half progressed and on the half hour Lifton equalised after a defensive error by the home defence. Another defensive lapse after the restart saw Lifton take the lead, but Foxhole were level on the hour after another penalty award, this time stroked in by Caleb Hawken. With thirty minutes in which to win the game the leaders were unable to score again and lost their perfect record as the game ended two all. Liam Cairns and Connor Everett were the Lifton scorers.

Adam Porter and Sam Smith both scored four times as Altarnon overwhelmed St Minver 11-2. Brandon Ambrose, Jowan Knights and Stuart Cole completed the home tally with Brad Latham and Ross Beare getting the St Minver consolations.

Pelynt and Tintagel shared four goals. Tom Cantwell and Lee Powell scored for Pelynt with Adam Porter and Sean Keeble replying for Tintagel.

Grampound conceded two soft first half goals at home to Gorran. Callum Mason pulled a goal back before half time and the hosts were on top for the first twenty minutes of the second. However, they failed to capitalise and once Gorran scored they’re third the hosts fell away to lose 5-1. Tom Guest hit a brace with Sam Walker, Joe Gaskell and Aaron Dilley completing the Gorran scoring.

Lamerton Community beat Lanivet Inn 3-1. Elliot Blatchford, Sam Hicks and Lee Lewis were the home marksmen.

Liskeard Athletic reserves closed the gap at the top of Division Three following a 5-4 win over Southgate Seniors. Adrian Walton and Ian Thomas scored a brace apiece for Liskeard with Alfie Woollett completing their tally. Southgate replied with an Adam Scott brace and goals from Josh Barron and Josh Hannaford.

Polperro reserves won 6-1 at St Dennis thirds. Anthony Harman scored a brace with Ryan Oxley, Matt Baker, Aaron Honey and Lee Keating adding a goal apiece. Nathan McGall scored the home consolation goal.

The big clash in Division Four between two teams with a perfect record ended with Bude Town reserves winning 5-2 at Nanpean Rovers to install themselves as early promotion favourites. A strong Bude team won with Todd Peschke scoring four goals and another new signing George Pilkington getting their other goal. The Nanpean goals came from Sam Parsons and Reece Willmott.

Lifton reserves won 7-0 at St Anns Chapel. Ben Farrar hit a hat trick with Ryan Hancock, Tom Hancock, Liam Rich and Sam Wood adding a goal apiece.

Newmoor Rovers were 3-0 winners at Delabole United with Ryan Hayhurst getting a brace and Joe Orchard adding their other goal.

North Petherwin reserves still seek a first point at the bottom although their defence was much more watertight when just going down to a lone Martin Yelland goal at St Mawgan reserves.

JJ Jones & Sons Duchy Football League Saturday 13th October 2018

Premier Division leaders Godolphin Atletic reserves beat the weather conditions and were too good for hosts Gerrans & St Mawes United as they ran out comfortable 4-0 winners. Dom Roberts hit a brace with Dan Parsonage and a James Day own goal completing the scoring.

Foxhole Stars faced a difficult match at Boscastle on a windy day but mastered both as they won 4-1. Richard Griffin, Lee Whetter, Lee Reed-Bennett and an own goal for Foxhole with Olly Edwards getting the hosts consolation.

St Dennis reserves picked up their first points of the season pipping North Petherwin by the odd goal in seven. Grant Williams, Ashley Taylor, Jordan Pope and Kieran Ralph for St Dennis with Mark Elvidge, Greg Hutchings and Walter Medlicott replying for Petherwin.

Sticker reserves won 4-2 at Veryan with Jack Boardman hitting a hat trick. Dan Hocking was the other scorer for Sticker.

Division One leaders Gunnislake knew they were facing their sternest test when hosting Stoke Climsland and the visitors made an early statement to be title contenders with an emphatic 7-2 win. The wind didn’t help the hosts cause as Stoke handled the conditions far better, but in truth the better side won. Stuart Fort hit a hat trick and Phil Burgoyne a brace for Stoke with Cameron Copp and Mike Norman adding a goal apiece. Gunnislake replied through Mike King and a Simon Kelly penalty.

St Dominick were hanging on under severe pressure but then struck two minutes from time to win a classic game of two halves at Saltash United 5-4. Both tried to play football despite the tricky conditions. Ben Jeffery cut in from the left to shoot low into the net to give St Dominick a 7th minute lead. It was Jeffery again cutting in from the right this time to double the lead in the 22nd minute. Saints scored a third from a Liam Bryant free kick in the 38th minute to take a good lead into half time. Playing against the wind in the second half, St Dominick eased any worries of a home comeback when Josh Searle scored their fourth in the 57th minute. It took a mistake from the visiting keeper to spark life into Saltash. From that error Troy Harris pulled a goal back, Hayden Bray quickly added a second and then Bray converted a 75th minute penalty kick to reduce the arrears to one. Ten minutes from time Cameron Lidstone scored a spectacular equaliser from twenty-five yards and all St Dominick’s good first half play appeared fruitless. However, two minutes from time Bryant hit a long-range cracker to give St Dominick the spoils.

The wind was the real winner at St Merryn where the hosts eventually scored the game’s only goal ten minutes from time against Queens Rangers. The goal came from a cracking cross from Lewis Canfield right onto the head of Josh Dark for a stunning winner.

The windy conditions contributed to many of the goals as Holywell/Cubert Athletic were beaten 5-3 at home by AFC Bodmin. Charlie Bickle hit a hat trick with Matt Hooper and Connor Sellstrom completing the Bodmin tally with James Ralph, Simon Holmes and Bryan Picoto replying for Holywell and the wind getting most assists.

North Hill made the most of a strong wind at their backs in the first half at St Cleer and raced into a four-goal lead through Bradley Stevens, Jason Ridgment, Kane Thomas and Ben Berry. St Cleer were still hopeful of pulling back the deficit, but during the half time break the wind eased. St Cleer were still four down with ten minutes to play but their first goal through Connor Stone opened the floodgates and then further strikes from Andrew Seels, Charlie Coates and Dan Sharpe saw them fightback and finally square the match at four all.

St Columb Major took a 10th minute lead through Ben Atherton at home to Foxhole reserves. The visitors got on top with Jake Couch equalising with a bullet header to take them into half time level. Within two minutes of the restart Richard James put Foxhole ahead. Stewart May made a fantastic save to keep the visitors ahead but from the next attack Atherton restored parity with his second goal. Jamie Robinson then took a grip of the match scoring four times for Foxhole, the second a sublime chip over the keeper. Foxhole were not finished with James scoring his second goal from twenty yards into the top corner. Couch scored his second near the end to give the Division Two leaders Foxhole an 8-2 away win.

Lamerton Community have been a little off the boil recently so will be happy to return to form with a 6-1 defeat of Lifton. Elliot Blatchford hit a hat trick with the hosts other goals coming from Sam Hicks, Jamie Court and an own goal. Lifton replied through Liam Cairns.

A branch fell onto the pitch before the Gorran v Lanivet Inn match. The host club hurriedly got a saw to clear the debris and they went into half time 4-1 down. The second half saw fortunes completely reversed with the game ending as a five all draw. Tom Guest, Ryan Parker, Sam Guy, Joe Gaskell and an own goal for Gorran. Lanivet scored with a brace apiece from Darren Lang and Bradley Mills and a Dan Marshall goal.

At St Stephen, Mevagissey started quicker than the hosts and went ahead on 10 minutes with a shot from 15 yards from Bryan Chapman. They went 2-0 up two minutes later from Andy Wright and St Stephen feared a hammering, but four minutes later Chris Mullen pulled a goal back. It took till the 64th minute for St Stephen to equalise, a corner swung in the area by Aiden Le Masurier caused mayhem and a penalty was awarded, which Charlie Stone put away. Both teams searched for a winner, but no further goals came despite several shots from either side hitting the bar and posts as the game ended two apiece.

In Division Three Pensilva were sunk with an 89th minute winner giving Polperro a 2-1 result. Defending against the wind in the first half Pensilva restricted the visitors to just an Anthony Harman goal. When Karl Gross equalised in the second half the hosts looked the favourites until an 89th minute free kick was put into the box and Matt Baker put it in the net.

Sam Parsons scored four times as Nanpean Rovers maintained their 100 per cent start in Division Four with an eleven goals to one win at North Petherwin reserves. Five up at the break Nanpean kept their foot on the pedal after the restart. Jack Taylor hit a hat trick, with Adam Gamble, Jordan Packer, Reece Willmott and Luke Truscott completing their tally. It has been an extremely difficult start for Petherwin, but they did pull one goal back through Chris Alford.

Bude Town reserves also remain with a 100 per cent record after winning at Lifton reserves 4-2. Steve Hackett and Luke Bridgwater scored a brace apiece for the hosts. Liam Rich and Tom Hancock replied for Lifton.

St Cleer reserves stay top on goal difference with four wins from five games. They won 5-2 at St Mawgan reserves with Liam Donaghy hitting a hat trick. Duane Williams and Josh Stevens completed their tally with Matt Lamb and Nathan Allum replying for St Mawgan.

Newmoor Rovers won a scrappy game at home to Boscastle reserves, a match played in the right sprit and well refereed by Bob Steggles. The only goal came just before half time from Ryan Hayhurst.

Tom Mileham hit a hat trick as Lostwithiel reserves beat St Anns Chapel 4-0. Nathan Cummings completed the scoring.

Delabole United went down 4-2 at home to Week St Mary. Henry Morris and Ricardo Neto were the home scorers. Week picked up the points with goals from Ben Medland, Steve Short, Aled Thomas and Gary Heywood.

JJ Jones & Sons Duchy Football League - Saturday 6th October 2018

Premier Division leaders Torpoint Athletic struggled in the windy conditions at Boscastle as they fell to a 2-1 defeat, their first of the season. Olly Edwards and James Bosley scored for Boscastle with Adam Parry getting the visitors reply.

The windy conditions spoiled what promised to be an exiting match at St Newlyn East with the hosts scoring late to secure a 3-2 win over St Dennis reserves. Lewis Dodd put the hosts ahead and then added their second later in the half. St Dennis hit back with Dan Menhinnitt reducing the arrears and Callum Oldham picking up on a defensive error to equalise. With a draw looming and probably the fairest result, Aaron Thompson struck for the hosts to score their winner.

Godolphin Atlantic reserves quickly overcame last weeks home loss with a superb 7-1 win at Lostwithiel with Dom Roberts hitting a hat trick. Lee Paxton and Ryan Martin and a brace from Mickey Thompson completed the Godolphin scoring with Jonny Harris getting the home consolation. This result takes Godolphin top on goal difference.

Much needed first wins for Veryan and Gerrans & St Mawes United. Veryan won 3-0 at previously unbeaten St Mawgan. Meanwhile their neighbours GSM made the most of the difficult conditions and took their chance when it came with Riley Yelland scoring the game’s only goal at home to North Petherwin.

Gunnislake are surprise early leaders in Division One and consolidated their position with a 4-1 win at North Hill although the score-line was a little unfair on the hosts. Joe Wakenshaw scored a brace with Jake Rapson and Jamie Dewdney completing the Gunnislake tally. The unfortunate hosts replied through a Jason Ridgment goal.

St Dominick beat Holywell/Cubert Athletic 5-0 and in truth it could have been far more. The first fifteen minutes were quite even until St Dominick scored their first when Harvey Barrett headed home. Two minutes later and the hosts added a second following a good move with Callum Searle netting the goal. St Dominick went close a few more times and Billy Biddis hit the bar before Ben Jeffery scored their third in the 37th minute following another smart move. Three minutes after half time Jeffery scored again and then a mixture of poor finishing and fine goal keeping kept the score down. Jeffery completed a hat trick in the 75th minute to round off the scoring.

Sam Rowse volleyed a first minute goal for Tregrehan Mills at home to Saltash United 3rds. The visitors overcame this early set back and Cameron Lidstone hit a 35th minute equaliser, but Mills regained the lead with the last kick off the first half with Rowse getting his second. Rowse completed a hat trick when he volleyed the hosts third with Saltash scoring with virtually the last kick of the game when Hayden Bray hit a fine free kick into the top corner as Mills ran out 3-2 winners.

Stoke Climsland remain unbeaten beating St Merryn 7-2. Stuart Fort and Phil Burgoyne scored a brace apiece with Kieran Ryall, Cameron Copp and James Campbell completing their tally. Mike Shearer scored both St Merryn goals.

St Cleer drew one all at home to St Breward. Zak Peel of St Cleer traded goals with Scott Burke.

Grampound’s misfortunes show no sign of ending as they went down to a 4-1 home defeat to Altarnon in their Division two match. The Grampound keeper was injured in the warm up and unable to play. His stand in passed straight to an Altarnon player in the very first minute and they found themselves one down. Poor home defending then led to the visitors second goal. Grampound pulled one back from a superb Brian Walkham free kick. Altarnon scored two late goals to make the score-line looked far worse than it should have been. Altarnon scored through a Brandon Ambrose brace and goals from Stuart Cole and Adam Porter.

Gorran beat Lamerton Community 2-1 in a game of good football, which was well refereed. Tom Guest and Joe Gaskell scored for Gorran with Paul Cowling replying for Lamerton.

Lifton beat St Columb Major 4-1. The opening goal came from a neat piece of play finished from the edge of the area by Liam Cairns. In the second half St Columb exploited a mistake from the keeper for Nathan Chapman to tap in an equaliser from close range. Dan Gregory scored with a shot across the keeper to restore the lead for Lifton and George Murrain scored two penalties one in the bottom corner either side to complete the victory.

Calstock are off the bottom of Division Three after beating St Dennis 3rds 5-1. Finn Phillips and Mark Northey scored a brace apiece for Calstock with Mitchel Hosking completing the scoring although his goal could easily be credited as a St Dennis own goal. The visitor’s consolation came from Dave Cloke.

Jordan Friendship was in hot form with four goals as St Eval Spitfires beat Dobwalls reserves 5-2. Matt Hawke completed the home scoring with Scott Corson and Ben Gaynor replying for Dobwalls.

Mevagissey reserves ended Pensilva’s 100 per cent start. The hosts won 4-2 with Tom Rawlings scoring a brace and Brandon Chapman and Rory Dixon completing their tally. Pensilva replied through Sam Rogers and Jacob England.

A good start for new Southgate manager Adam Scott as his charges beat St Stephen reserves 2-1. Craig Charnock and Scott himself scored for Southgate with Aidan La Masurier replying.

Liskeard Athletic 3rds took a 30th minute lead at home to Polperro reserves. By half time the visitors were 2-1 up and the hosts rather fell apart in the second half as Polperro raced to a 7-2 win. Harry Gilbert and Ian Thomas were the Liskeard scorers.

Two 100 percent records clashed at Nanpean in Division Four with the hosts beating free-scoring Lifton reserves 3-0. Two first half goals from Reece Willmott and Luke Truscott put the hosts in the box seats. Adam Gamble scored the only goal of the second half to wrap up a more than comfortable win.

Bude Town reserves beat Lostwithiel reserves 7-1. Steve Box and Steve Hackett scored a brace apiece with Peter Lovett, James Richardson and David Hales completing the hosts tally.

St Cleer reserves hit nine without reply at North Petherwin reserves with Liam Donaghy scoring four times. The scoring was completed by a Stuart Hilton brace and goals from Duane Williams, Declan Cullingford and Dave Hawke.

Newmoor reserves picked up a first win, 2-1 at St Anns Chapel. Wayne Hoole and Stuart Bell scored for Newmoor with Tom Savage replying for St Anns.

Boscastle reserves appear much more competitive this season and won well, 3-0 at Week St Mary. Matt Joliffe, Jake Dickinson and Darren Hambly were the marksmen.

JJ Jones & Sons Duchy Football League - Saturday 29th September 2018

Veryan progressed to the second round of the KMD Developments Knock Out Cup with an expected 7-2 victory at Grampound, although for long periods the contest was alive. Veryan scored three in a ten-minute spell in the first half, which could have deflated the home side. Grampound battled back to score through Dylan Fox before half time and reduced the deficit to one with another goal from Fox shortly after the restart. This spurred Veryan to put their foot on the pedal and they scored four goals in fifteen minutes to wrap up the tie. Sam Bullen hit a hat trick and Derrick Lucas a brace for the Premier side. Martyn O’Callaghan and Ollie Young completed the visitors tally.

Nanpean upset higher division opponents to move into the second round of the Shoe Boy League Cup. They won 6-3 at Calstock with Sam Parsons and Reece Willmott bagging a brace apiece. The other Nanpean goals came from Kyle Willmott and Ryan Collins.

There was no upset at Foxhole where their reserve side moved into the second round beating Newmoor Rovers 3-1. Richard James, Jeremy Pascoe and Caleb Hawken were the home scorers.

Overnight Premier Division leaders Foxhole were very fortunate to come away from North Petherwin with a point after a very late superb lobbed goal from 25 yards from Richard Griffin secured a two all draw. Petherwin battered the table toppers for much of the game. Ryan Julian put them ahead from the spot and Mark Elvidge lobbed their second. Foxhole pulled one back from Griffin but still looked a beaten side before his late intervention for the equaliser.

Torpoint Athletic are the new leaders. They travelled to another 100 percent side Godolphin Atlantic reserves and secured a fine 5-2 win. Tom Rowe and Adam Parry scored a brace apiece for Torpoint who even at this early stage appear as realistic title contenders. Sam Trethewey was the other Torpoint scorer with Mickey Thompson and Dom Roberts replying for Godolphin.

Boscastle picked their first win since their return to the Premier Division. They beat Gerrans & St Mawes United 2-1 to leave their opponents still seeking a first point of the season. Sam Haddy and James Bosley scored for Boscastle with Charlie Jones replying.

Sticker were 7-2 victors over St Dennis reserves with James Martin getting two goals. The hosts other strikes were shared between Adam Dalby, Eddie George, Jack Boardman, Dan Hocking and Sam Begun. St Dennis replied through Craig Coad and Nathan McGall.

Holywell/Cubert Athletic are off the mark in Division One beating Tregrehan Mills 4-1 in a game of cracking football between two fine sides. Luke Williams hit a brace with Dan Code and Peter Bruce completing the Holywell scoring. Tregrehan replied with a Scott Foster goal.

There was a seven-goal classic at St Breward full of pulsating football where the hosts shaded visitors Saltash United 3rds 4-3. John Harris, Karl Croft, Scott Burke and Rob Marks scored for St Breward. Jamie Nicholls scored a hat trick, but all in vain for the unlucky visitors.

Lifton secured their first points of the season in Division Two beating Tintagel 3-1. Anthony Coles, Simon Oliver, and Connor Everett for Lifton with Adam Price getting the Tintagel goal.

Gorran beat St Columb Major 9-2. This young St Columb side played the better football, but their defensive frailties are clear to see and the loss of their latest goalkeeper through injury hasn’t helped. Gorran picked up their first points with a brace apiece from Tom Guest, Joe Gaskell and Andrew Whatty. Their remaining goals came from Oliver Matthews, Gordon Douglas and Jack Trays. St Columb replied through Ben Atherton and Jake Peters.

There was only one game in Division Three, but what a ding-dong of a local derby between Pensilva and Dobwalls reserves it turned out to be. Both players were reduced to ten men in the first half, which Pensilva comfortably led 6-2 at the break. With tensions high after the restart and Pensilva down to eight players at one stage with two men in the sin bin, Dobwalls fought back and were eventually only beaten 6-5 in a game that will live in the memory for quite a time. Karl Gross, Sam Rogers and Zak Mitchell scored a brace apiece in the first half as the hosts looked in an unassailable lead. Dobwalls had Pensilva hanging on for the points by the end with a Ben Gaynor brace and goals from Tom Kirk, Matt Bryant and Scott Corson.

Liam Donaghy hit a hat trick as St Cleer reserves overwhelmed Delabole United 8-1 in Division Four. The home scoring was completed by goals from Duane Williams, Stuart Hilton, Dec Cullingford, Josh Stevens and Sam Pengelly with Henry Morris getting the visitors consolation.

The bad side of football appeared at St Anns Chapel where their game with St Mawgan reserves was abandoned after 64 minutes with the hosts leading 3-1. Ryan Lynam, Dan Cribbett and Taryn Walsh scored for St Anns with Chris Leach getting the St Mawgan goal. Everything exploded when St Anns scored their third, which the visitors disputed had never crossed the line. The referee was surrounded by players and officials and unable calm the dissent ordered the abandonment. The referee will now process a report for the County Association to act upon prior to the league being able to make a judgment.

JJ Jones & Sons Duchy Football League - Saturday 22nd September 2018

Boscastle reserves picked up a first league win of the season in Division Four beating North Petherwin reserves 3-1. The two sides met last week in the League Cup with Boscastle winning on both occasions and this defeat leaves Petherwin pointless at the bottom of the division. James Bosley hit a brace for the hosts with Michael Parsons adding their other goal. Darren Volz replied for Petherwin.

The only other Duchy match on a day where the Cornwall Junior Cup took precedence was at Lostwithiel where the hosts reserves’ and St Cleer reserves were looking for their first points of the season. It was a day dominated by St Cleer and in particular Duane Williams who scored four times in the visitors 9-2 win. Luke Jackson, Stuart Hilton, Sam Pengelly, Declan Cullingford and Chris Worth added a goal apiece for St Cleer with AJ Owen and Chris Massey replying for Lostwithiel.

JJ Jones & Sons Duchy Football League - Saturday 15th September 2018

It was a day of cup action in the Duchy League. St Mawgan proved too strong for St Merryn in the KMD Developments Knock Out Cup winning 8-2 away from home. The First Division side were weakened by absences but also put in a very poor performance as they fell to the high-flying Premier opponents. Craig Allen and Louis Price scored a brace apiece with Chris Jordan, Stuart Harris, Dan Ball and Ali Bicknell completing the St Mawgan tally. St Merryn replied with a debut goal from Jordan Hanlan and a Mike Shearer goal.

St Dominick came very close to an upset going down 2-1 to Torpoint Athletic. Callum Searle hit the post for the visitors early on and the hosts didn’t take heed of the danger as they went behind in the 23rd minute when Liam Bryant put St Dominick ahead following good work from Ben Jeffery. Sam Nicholson made a good save to keep the visitors in front, but the equaliser came on the hour when a long throw in from the right was deflected past Nicholson by his own defender. Jeffery was denied restoring the visitors lead when one on one with the keeper, but the game was settled by a goalmouth melee in the 78th minute. Bodies were flying everywhere and after it settled the referee sent off St Dominick’s Ryan Corey but only cautioned the Torpoint player involved. Two minutes later the extra man told as Will Ferguson scored what proved to be the winner.

Richard Griffin gave Foxhole the lead fifteen minutes into their tie with Gorran following a great through ball from Rory Barnicle. Ten minutes later Ryan Wilkins added a second from the penalty spot. With the gulf between the teams in league terms the visitors could have easily folded but they battled to keep the score to 2-0 at the break. The Gorran keeper made an outstanding save ten minutes onto the second half but later the keeper suffered a nasty cut to his face and was forced to leave the field. Immediately Griffin scored his second past the replacement keeper. Shane Kibell added a fourth, but to their credit Gorran survived further scares to lose only 4-0, a creditable performance.

Division Two Pelynt made Premier side Godolphin Atlantic reserves battle for their 2-1 win. Jacob Grange and Matt Sanders scored for Godolphin with Tom Davies replying for Pelynt.

Premier side St Dennis reserves came out on top of First Division Saltash United 3rds, but it was only a Keiran Ralph goal that separated the sides.

Another Premier win came as Boscastle beat St Cleer 3-1. Ollie Edwards hit a brace with Jamie Burnett claiming the other Boscastle goal and Jack Ostle replying for St Cleer.

One Premier side to fall was Gerrans & St Mawes United. They continued a poor start to the season with a 2-1 home reverse to AFC Bodmin. Mike Horne and Ben Sturdy scored for Bodmin with Aiden Richards replying for GSM.

Another Premier side Sticker reserves fell at St Breward, but only on penalties after a one all draw. James Martin gave Sticker the lead early doors. Nathan Elliott equalised for St Breward and with extra time bringing no further goals St Breward progressed 4-3 on penalties.

Adam Porter scored six goals as Altarnun beat St Columb Major 10-4. Jowan Knights added a brace with Brandon Ambrose and Sam Smith completing the home tally. Ben Atherton replied with a hat trick for Major with Alex Hirt getting their other goal.

Stoke Climsland thrashed a poor North Hill side hitting eleven without reply. Wayne Skeldon hit a hat trick with Kieran Ryall and Phil Burgoyne adding a brace apiece. The rout was completed with goals from Jason Beynon, Adam Keith, Stuart Fort and Connor Pritchard-Lee.

Division Two toppled Division One at Gunnislake where Tintagel came away with a 3-1 win. Jamie Dewdney scored the home goal. Tintagel won through a Shaun Keeble penalty, a free kick from Martin Cockcroft and an Adam Price goal.

Lanivet Inn also upset First Division opposition when putting out Tregrehan Mills 2-1. Liam Ames and Dan Jennings scored for Lanivet with Sam Rowse pulling a goal back.

It took extra time to settle the only all Premier Division tie. Lostwithiel were level with North Petherwin one all at ninety minutes although they were thankful for veteran keeper Bill Davies to get them that far. Each side scored once more in extra time and with a penalty shootout looming Liam Rooney struck with his second goal of the game in the very last minute of extra time to secure a 3-2 win for Lostwithiel. Bayley Phillips scored the other Lostwithiel goal with Mark Elvidge and Andy Sleeman scoring for North Petherwin.

First round action also in The Shoe Boy League Cup. In a North-East derby Boscastle reserves went to North Petherwin reserves and won 3-2. Matt Jolliffe, Aaron Washer and Barrett for Boscastle with Darren Volz and Chris Alford replying for North Petherwin.

Holders St Stephen reserves progressed with a 5-1 win at St Cleer reserves. Ryan Best hit a brace with Stuart Kesson-Smith, James Allen and Curtis Dalby adding a goal apiece. Josh Stevens scored the hosts consolation goal.

Anthony Harman hit a hat trick as Polperro reserves progressed with a 7-0 win at St Anns Chapel. The other goals were shared by James Morris, Matt Baker, Liam Keating and Alex Butters.

Southgate Seniors were in dominant form thrashing St Mawgan reserves 11-1. Adam Scott scored four goals with Harry Toulson adding a brace. Southgate’s other goals came from Nathan Farrer, Alistair Blackwell, Craig Charnock, Will Green and Josh Hannaford. Aaron Greenwood got the visitors consolation.

Liskeard Athletic 3rds beat Bude Town reserves 3-2. Bude were two up at half time with goals from Ben Bryant and Steve Hackett. Harry Gilbert scored a brace for Liskeard, one from the spot with Jordan West getting their other goal as they turned the tie around in the second half.

JJ Jones & Sons Duchy Football League Saturday 8th September 2018

Veryan progressed to the second round of the KMD Developments Knock Out Cup with an expected 7-2 victory at Grampound, although for long periods the contest was alive. Veryan scored three in a ten-minute spell in the first half, which could have deflated the home side. Grampound battled back to score through Dylan Fox before half time and reduced the deficit to one with another goal from Fox shortly after the restart. This spurred Veryan to put their foot on the pedal and they scored four goals in fifteen minutes to wrap up the tie. Sam Bullen hit a hat trick and Derrick Lucas a brace for the Premier side. Martyn O’Callaghan and Ollie Young completed the visitors tally.

Nanpean upset higher division opponents to move into the second round of the Shoe Boy League Cup. They won 6-3 at Calstock with Sam Parsons and Reece Willmott bagging a brace apiece. The other Nanpean goals came from Kyle Willmott and Ryan Collins.

JJ Jones & Sons Duchy Football League - Saturday 17th February 2018

Gerrans & St Mawes United move clear of the Premier Division relegation zone with Charlie Jones scoring a fine hat trick in their 3-1 defeat of Lostwithiel. Jordan Cummings hit the visitors reply.

Biscovey slipped deeper into to trouble going down to a 3-1 defeat at North Petherwin. Dan Warring and a free kick from Joe Reeve for Petherwin, but their final goal a rocket from 35 yards from Walter Medlicott was the goal of the game.

Boscastle enhanced their Division One promotion chances with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over next to bottom Pelynt. Rob Heal scored both home goals with Jake Thomas replying for Pelynt.

Godolphin Atlantic closed the gap at the top to six points after two goals in the opening ten minutes at Gunnislake put the game out of reach of the home club. Kane Tippett and Josh Dingle were the Godolphin scorers. Gunnislake rallied from this early setback eventually going down 2-1, their goal coming from Kieran Jasper.

Queens Rangers stay on the fringes after beating North Hill 5-0. Wade Laity gave them a tenth minute lead. The North Hill keeper made two good saves to keep them in the game and as the half neared its end they created a couple of chances. With neither converted, Queens hit them with two late goals. The second half was one-way traffic for the hosts. Their other goals came from Mike Bale (2), Jack Williams and a Phil Walmsley free kick.

A dour game at St Merryn ended with the hosts beating Callington town 2-0. Josh Dark and Rob Centini scored the goals, but it was very much two teams getting to know themselves again after such a shortage of football.

Grampound stay rooted to the bottom although their performance wasn’t as bad as the final 8-2 home loss to AFC Bodmin suggests. They were four down in twenty minutes but showed some character to make a game of the rest of the match. Mike Horne scored four for Bodmin with Connor Mitchell-Sellstrom, Billy Daynes and a Matt Hooper brace completing their tally. Tim Peers and Ryan Orchard replied for Grampound.

Division Two leaders Stoke Climsland were far too experienced for Saltash United reserves with Stuart Fort with a hat trick and Phil Burgoyne with a brace being the major difference between the two teams. Four down at the break, Saltash were much more competitive after the restart just conceding a penalty in a 5-0 defeat.

St Columb Major secured second place with a 6-1 home win over St Minver reserves. Craig Allen and Tom Ball hit a brace apiece with Dan Ball and Andy Mills completing the home tally.

Tregrehan Mills wrapped up their game at Lanivet in the first twenty-five minutes with a Sam Rowse brace and a Dom Swire goal. Lanivet pulled a goal back through Connor Mewton but on the stroke of half time Dean Dingle converted a penalty for Tregrehan. There was no further scoring with the visitors running out 4-1 winners.

Calstock at the ninth time of asking secured a first point of the season as a Finn Phillips goals gave them a one all draw at Tintagel. Craig Stollery was the home scorer.

Pensilva went down 2-4 at home to St Cleer. Ed Bradshaw gave St Cleer a fifth minute lead with Adie Walton doubling the lead. Sam Pengelly pulled a goal back before half time and scored a second after the restart to equalise. Pensilva went looking for the win, which proved their downfall as Walton and Zak Mollard right at the end scored winning goals for St Cleer.

Foxhole reserves faced a ten-man High Street throughout their Division Three clash. Three up at half time the home side scored four second half goals to complete a 7-0 win. Chris Burns scored a brace with the other goals from Nathan Allen, Bradley Allen, Dean Robinson, Richard James and an own goal.

Lamerton Community stay unbeaten at the top after a 4-2 home win over Rame Peninsula. The hosts did well to hang on to their unbeaten record having a man dismissed and another sin-binned. Sam Hicks hit a hat trick with Blair Vanstone getting the other home goal. Zak Rosen scored both Rame goals.

Roche move into promotion contention after beating Delabole United 3-1. Tyler Trudgeon scored a brace with Adam Floyd getting the other home goal. Mike Titchen scored for Delabole.

Mevagissey stay next to bottom after losing 3-2 at home to Lifton. Ryan Morcom and Leon Trudgeon scored for Mevagissey, but the visitors took the points with strikes from Anthony Coles, Darren Volz and Wayne Francome.

Lanreath and St Eval Spitfires shared six goals. Josh Austin, Alan Parry and Tom Rowe were the Lanreath marksmen with Jordan Friendship with a brace and Neil Moore securing the visitors a point.

A good game between Dobwalls and St Stephen reserves ended square at two all. The home side missed some chances for the win with Sam Hummagain getting both their goals.

St Mawgan reserves eased their re-election fears in Division Four with a 4-0 victory over Boscastle reserves. Bonar Maull, Nathan Allum, Lee Bryant and Chris Leach scored a goal apiece.

Wadebridge Town were too good for bottom side St Anns Chapel winning 4-0. Alan White, Nick Dowling, Jordan Stone and Jack Peck were the scorers.

Leaders Polperro stretched their lead with a 3-1 win at Liskeard Athletic. Aaron Varcoe, Tyler Collins and Ethan Powell scored for Polperro with Leon Caers getting the home consolation.

North Petherwin reserves had a good 3-0 win at Looe Town. Norton Boultby, Josh Sanders and Adam Porter scored a goal apiece. St Kew drew three at home to Week St Mary with the fixture reversed as Week’s pitch was still unfit. The home scorers were Kristian Stafford with a brace and Adam Clements. Week replied with a Scott Percy brace and a goal from Steve Short.

Cornwall Junior Cup

St Stephen are through to their fourth successive Junior Cup Semi Final. Jay Davie scored inside a minute, but the goal was ruled out for offside, but 5 minutes in Luke Damerell cut in from the right to fire in the first goal from 8 yards out. Damerell scored his second from a rebound from a corner before St Stephen went 3-0 up when Kyle Willmott drove in a screamer from 20 yards in the 35th minute. A gutsy Holywell team pulled a goal back through Rian Faulkner on 43 minutes. The second half was only nine minutes old when Will Watson scored from a Lee Whetter knock down to make it 4-1, then on 63 minutes Courtney Rowe was brought down in the box and Damerell scored his hat -trick goal. In the 70th minute a Holywell player got a straight red as he brought down Rowe as he was the last man and stopped a certain goal. Substitute Matthew Truscott scored from a header at the far post to make it 6-1 on 73 minutes, Craig Coad then scored two minutes later before Faulkner scored his second of the game on 78 minutes. Rowe scored from the penalty spot after being fouled again in the box on 83 minutes and scored again two minutes later to make it 9-2. Holywell pulled a goal back on 89 minutes through Simon Holmes and got their fourth in the last minute of time added on when Dave Stoneman scored. 

Torpoint Athletic made the long journey to New Inn Titans and overcame a difficult opponent with Curtis Damerell scoring the game’s only goal in the 32nd minute. Damerell hit a cross come shot from over 20 yards which deceived the home keeper. With a sandy pitch waring very badly by the end making conditions extremely difficult there was no further scoring as the Duchy side progressed to the semi-finals.

Sticker were unable to make it a Duchy hat trick conceding three goals in the last fifteen minutes as they lost 3-0 at home to Penwith Exiles.

JJ Jones & Sons Duchy Football League - Saturday 3rd February 2018

With the weather again affecting the Duchy programme Southgate Seniors and Lamerton Community were proactive in booking the 3G pitch at Tavistock College to enable their second round Bodmin Sports Trophies League Cup tie to go ahead. Lamerton won 6-0 scoring four goals in a strong first half performance. Southgate showed great spirit and had a good spell in the second half before Lamerton scored twice more. Sam Turner hit a hat trick and Daryl Panter a brace with Steve Daymond getting their other goal. For Lamerton a home quarter-final with St Stephen reserves awaits, while for Southgate it’s back to their more serious ambition of gaining promotion from Division Four.

Dobwalls are also through to the quarter-finals after beating Mevagissey 4-3. The home scorers were Scott Corson, Sam Hummagain, Ben Gaynor and Orson De-Rijke-Thomas. Dobwalls face a derby at Lanreath in the next round.

Premier Division basement side Saltash United appeared on course for a win when leading by a Josh Tapp brace and a Frazer Ferris goal after twenty minutes of their match at Gerrans & St Mawes United. The hosts pulled a goal back before half time and then in ever worsening conditions went on to complete a 6-3 win with a fine second half performance. GSM’s goals came from Andy Harris (2), one a contender for goal of the season, Harry Wilshaw, Charlie Jones, Ben Ringrose and Hadyn Andrew.

With many of the leading sides in County Cup action, Veryan took advantage and went to the top following a 6-3 defeat of St Dennis with Damon Mulready hitting a hat trick, one a penalty. Bobby Lee-Johns, Brendan Chapman and Derrick Lucas were the other home marksmen. St Dennis replied with goals from Lee Rickard, Carl Rickard and Nathan Hugh.

Foxhole beat North Petherwin 3-1. Lee Reed-Bennett gave them a first half lead. Liam Downing equalised after half time but two late goals from Rory Barnicle and Nathan Pappiononnou gave the hosts the spoils.

St Newlyn East stay well clear at the top of Division One after their 4-0 defeat of Callington Town. Lewis Dodd scored a brace, one from the spot. Sam Lawrence scored on his debut and Chris Ballett completed the scoring with a powerful header.

Boscastle enhanced their promotion hopes beating North Hill 5-2. Jamie Burnett and Dan Piper scored a brace apiece with James Bosley completing the hosts tally. Paul Wearing scored both North Hill goals.

Queens Rangers were below strength but pleased to get a game after all the recent inactivity but at the end of ninety minutes their opinion would surely be different following an eleven-nil defeat at St Dominick. Ben Jeffery and Charlie Coates scored four goals apiece. Kieran Wenmoth, Nathan Behennah and Calum Searle completed the rout.

Something had to give with the two pointless clubs meeting at Grampound. The hosts raced into a three-goal lead within twenty-five minutes with a brace from Jason Retallick and one from Dylan Fox. Pelynt pulled a goal back on the break just on half time and then scored a second a minute into the second half. The game settled and nearing time Grampound looked good to hang on for the win. With seven minutes remaining Pelynt equalised and then with the last kick of the match a deflected shot gave Pelynt a 4-3 win. Kevin Barnes (2), James Barrett and Josh Pearn the Pelynt scorers.

There was only game passed fit to play in Division Two but at least it featured two teams who had played the fewest games. St Minver reserves earned the points from a 4-1 defeat of Gorran. Brad Latham scored a brace with Steve Latham and Christian Cleave completing the St Minver tally. Lewis Reeves replied for Gorran.

A welcome three points for St Eval Spitfires in their battle to avoid relegation from Division Three following a 4-2 win over Lanreath. Jon Summerfield scored a brace for the hosts with Adam Jefferies and Julio Guillen completing their tally. George White and Joe Boswell replied for Lanreath.

Delabole United remain on the bottom after a 4-1 home defeat by Foxhole reserves. Dan Peters scored a brace for Foxhole with their other goals coming from Dean Robinson and a Davey Tilley own goal. Darren Rivers scored the Delabole consolation.

Only one game survived in Division Four and its advantage to the leaders Polperro after a 3-1 derby win at Looe Town. Bradley Woodman scored for Looe but goals from Tyler Collins, Dave Gilbert and Antony Harman stretch Polperro’s lead at the top.

In the Cornwall Junior Cup St Stephen put out Trelawney league St Day 2-1. This was a great effort from St Day who played the better football in the first half. Joe Stone put St Stephen ahead on 19 minutes, a powerful header from a Jay Davie corner. Craig Coad passed to Courtney Rowe on 23 minutes, but the shot went wide with only the keeper to beat. St Day got a deserved equaliser on 38 minutes, a shot from 25 yards by Dan Cooper. Courtney Rowe missed another chance on 40 minutes before St Day had two great chances to take the lead but Steve Raven in goal made two outstanding saves to leave it at 1-1 at half time. 

Craig Coad scored with a delicate header from a Jay Davie cross on 55 minutes and St Stephen were much better in the second half with Rowe missing his third chance to score mid-way through the half. There were efforts at both ends but it is St Stephen to go through to the quarter final for the fourth season in a row. 

It was a good day for Duchy clubs after some indifferent results in earlier rounds. Torpoint Athletic had to go to extra time but eventually won 3-2 at Penzance.

Two Alex Bicknell goals put the visitors ahead but Veryan hit back with a Martyn O’Callaghan goal and a Damon Mulready penalty to square the game at half time. Mulready scored a second penalty five minutes from time but there was a late sting with Ollie Morrison equalising and then Ashley Bicknell striking home the winner from the third penalty of the game.

James Bosley added a brace for Boscastle with Matt Pethick completing their tally. Rangers goals came from Jordan Friendship and Jamie Seery.

St Dominick had to defend doggedly in the second half to gain a two all draw at Godolphin Atlantic.

However, twenty minutes from time St Dominick restored parity with Jeffery cutting in from the left to score his second goal. Godolphin went for the winner but good keeping from Sam Nicholson denied them a win.

For the second week running Lostwithiel travelled to Gerrans & St Mawes United and knocked the hosts out of a cup competition. This time in the KMD Developments Knock Out Cup the game was taken to extra time after the sides drew two all at ninety minutes.

JJ Jones & Sons Duchy Football League - Saturday 25th November 2017

Saltash United sit bottom of the Premier Division but manager Mark Bradley has felt fortune hasn’t been on their side so far, this season. Therefore a 3-1 victory at home to St Dennis reserves, a first league success, could well spark a revival. Dan Summerfield, Josh Tapp and Karl Whitehead scored for Saltash with Ryan Hayhurst getting the visitors reply.

An outstanding display by the Torpoint Athletic keeper earned his team a point at Veryan and kept the hosts from taking over at the top of the division. Justin Trebilcock scored for Veryan and Will Ferguson for Torpoint as the game ended at one all.

St Newlyn sitting third in Division One travelled to second placed St Dominick seeking revenge for a recent home defeat by their rivals. Newlyn were much the better side on the day winning 4-1 as the home side struggled to play football in the heavy conditions. St Dominick took a seventh minute lead after a good team move was finished by Alex Mortimore. The lead last just eleven minutes as Harry Mugford levelled for Newlyn. Charlie Coates and Nathan Behennah both fired wide for the hosts and then on the hour Lewis Dodd put Newlyn ahead.

Jordan Friendship restored parity after thirty minutes and five minutes into the second half Jamie Seery put the hosts ahead.

Lamerton scored in the 21st minute but the goal was adjudged off-side, but they eventually went ahead through Daryl Panter as he put a shot high into the St Stephen net from a tight angle wide on the left-hand side. James Allen then put a header over the Lamerton bar before in the 40th minute Lamerton think they have scored but the referee Colin Penhorwood blew for a foul before the ball went in. Lamerton complained but a minute later they did go 2-0 up when Panter curled a low free-kick off around the St Stephen wall. In the 58th minute in a goalmouth scramble Jordi Willmott fired home for St Stephen. In a very hard-fought half with many strong tackles Lamerton score but again the goal was disallowed as a Lamerton player in an offside position got a touch on the ball as a shot was driven in from 25 yards.

The first half was quite even before Queens scored the opening goal.

Patient scored the only goal of the second half from the penalty spot to confirm the win. St Dominick hit a post and the bar and Nathan Behennah went close but otherwise they were well beaten.

A cracking game between St Merryn and Godolphin Atlantic was decided by the visitors sharper finishing as Godolphin won 5-2.

David Crawford scored a hat trick with debutant Ryan Butler getting the other goal in Lanivet Inn’s 4-1 win at Calstock. Michael Palmer replied for the hosts.

Certainly a game of two halves at Gorran. Visitors Tregrehan Mills hit the post twice and should have been least three ahead in a goalless first half. They paid the penalty after the break as Gorran turned tables completely running out 7-1 winners to give the visitors a first league defeat. Shane Kibell and Tom Guest hit a hat trick apiece with Jack Trays completing the home scoring. Dom Swire replied with the visitor’s consolation.

St Stephen reserves go back to the top after beating Dobwalls 5-2 but the visitors created their own problems. This game had everything and at first it was a fairly even game with chances missed at both ends before Ben Gaynor put Dobwalls ahead on 12 minutes. They went 2-0 up on 18 minutes through Sam Hummagain and St Stephen looked out of sorts for a while but on the 43rd minute Jordan Willmott was fouled running through the Dobwalls defence and a penalty was awarded, which was scored by Reece Willmott. The second half was only two minutes old when St Stephen pulled level through Ashley Bonney from a Reece Willmott free- kick and on the 68th minute Bonney scored again, this time from a James Truscott free-kick. In the 71st minute Hummagain was sent to the Sin Bin but on his way said something and the referee gave him a yellow card he continued to give dissent so the referee then showed him a red card. Hummagain’s brother Lenny then said something and he was shown a yellow card and he then walked off the pitch along with his brother so the referee had no option but to red card him as well. Dobwalls now down to 9 men and 3-2 down had really thrown the game away needlessly, James Allen on 82 minutes and Jordan Willmott with a header on 88minutes made it 5-2 and a really strange win for St Stephen.

Roche won 2-1 at Foxhole reserves. Jamie Robinson scored for Foxhole with Roche sealing the points with a Shane Weeks goal and an own goal.

Rame Peninsula were held three all at home by High Street. Zach Rosen, Zak Pearce and an own goal for Rame.

Polperro moved to within a point of the Division Four leaders after beating Lostwithiel reserves 5-1. Ryan Oxley scored a brace with Aaron Honey, Tyler Collins and Ethan Powell completing the home tally. Jamie Facey scored the visitors consolation.

Tregony won by the odd goal in nine at Week St Mary with nine different players finding the net. Darren Hughes, Jake Foster, Xavier Blackler, Steve Floyd-Norris and Alex Long scored for Tregony with Steve Short, Jack Biggs, George Grigg and Darren Statton replying for the hosts.

Looe Town were deserved 2-1 winners at North Petherwin reserves. Liam Rich scored the home goal.

Joy at last for Grampound as they progressed after beating St Cleer 2-1. The hosts have suffered many trials and tribulations which even threatened their existence so a first win of the season will lift the gloom at the club. They were well on top for the first half hour and two goals up in that period, the first from Steve Webb and a second from Jason Retallick. St Cleer were much more in the game after the break. They pulled a goal back within five minutes from a bizarre own goal, which ricocheted off three players before nestling in the net. Try as much as they could they were unable to force an equaliser.

St Dominick were in impressive form at Division One leaders St Newlyn East earning a 4-0 win. Charlie Coates fires wide in the opening minutes but put the hosts into a 23rd minute lead following a good team move. Newlyn hit the crossbar and a little later Coates hit the opposing bar. Newlyn had a chance to get back in the game when awarded a penalty, but St Dominick keeper Sam Nicholson made a fine save. The visitors scored their second when a long kick out by Nicholson was fastened onto by Nathan Behennah to double the lead. Nicholson made two good saves as Newlyn fought back, but Ben Jeffery made the points safe in the 80th minute with a header at the far post following a corner. Jeffery scored again five minutes from the end to secure the visitors a crucial three points.

Jordi Willmott got the fourth on 32 minutes with a shot from the edge of the box. St Dennis only managed one shot on target in the second half as St Stephen kept them out for a good win and a clean sheet.

Cornwall Junior Cup - STICKER 2 NORTH PETHERWIN 0

In a competitive first half there was little to choose between two well matched sides. The visitors did have the ball in the home net after a goalkeeping fumble but it was ruled offside. With time running down a firm shot from Harvey Hann hit the crossbar and rebounded to Jack Boardman who slotted home. Half time 1-0. The second half was less than two minutes old when good work by Matt Searle saw him double the score. Sticker also had the ball in the net again with a carbon copy of the first half incident, a goalkeeping fumble and the ball rebounding to Searle who was adjudged offside after he had tapped home. Further chances were limited but the Sticker defence was never in too much trouble and capably dealt with all that the visitors could throw at them to see the game out with a 2-0 success.

J Jones & Sons Duchy Football League - Saturday October 28th 2017

With most Duchy sides in Junior Cup action there was a limited league programme. Just one Premier Division match was possible and Veryan took advantage to go to the top of the league for the first time. They won 3-1 at Biscovey with Derrick Lucas bagging a brace. Justin Trebilcock was the other Veryan scorer with Joel Barnicoat getting the home consolation goal.

Gunnislake remain unbeaten on their new ground after a good 3-1 win over AFC Bodmin. Kieran Jasper, Chris Parsons and Joe Wakenshaw scored for Gunnislake with Billy Daynes replying for the visitors. The win eases Gunnislake a little clearer from the relegation area of Division One.

Gorran were handicapped by the failure of their goalkeeper to turn up for their Division Two clash with Stoke Climsland. As a result they slumped to a first league defeat of the season with the visitors winning 6-4. Ross Penney scored a brace for Stoke with their other goals shared by Wayne Skeldon, Mike Hallowes, Mike Norman and Phil Burgoyne. Gorran replied with a brace apiece from Tom Guest and Shane Kibell. Stoke takeover at the top as a result of their victory.

Altarnun were 2-1 winners at home to Saltash United reserves. Sam Smith and Josh Smith scored for Altarnun with Ash Hooper replying for Saltash.

St Stephen reserves made it a five-way tie at the top of Division Three following a 7-0 win at High Street. St Stephen started swiftly with Reece Willmott scoring inside the first minute and then went 2-0 up when his brother Jordan Willmott got on the end of a Reece Willmott cross on 6 minutes. They had to wait until the 39th minute to go 3-0 when the third Willmott brother Kyle Willmott scored from close in. The second half was only a minute old when substitute Chris Mullen scored after getting to the ball before the High Street keeper after the keeper had saved a shot from Jordan Willmott. St Stephen continued to put the pressure on and on the 57th minute Charlie Stone volleyed in from a Reece Willmott corner, then two minutes later Jordan Willmott got his second goal of the game getting on to a cross by his brother Reece. James Allen got the final goal on 75 minutes. St Stephen had several more chances to score but saves and shots that hit the woodwork kept the score at seven. 

The leading pack is up to six clubs all on twelve points after Lanreath beat Foxhole reserves 3-0. Adam Parry, Callum McGhee and Connor Bone scored to take the hosts joint top of this highly contested division.

Division Four leaders Southgate Seniors were held two all at home by Liskeard Athletic. Craig Charnock and Liam Cairns were the home scorers.

North Petherwin reserves made the long journey to Tregony but came away 4-3 winners.

In the Cornwall Junior Cup St Dominick were well beaten 5-1 at Foxhole. The hosts outplayed their opponents in the first half with Martin Gilbert giving Foxhole a twelfth minute lead. Sam Nicholson made a flying save to deny the hosts a second but on the half hour the lead was doubled with a penalty from Phil Hutchings. Five minutes before half time the tie was effectively over when Lee Reed-Bennett scored Foxhole’s third. St Dominick were better in the second half and Charlie Coates was denied by the home keeper. Reed-Bennett scored his second to stretch the home lead with a header from a cross on the right. Alex Mortimore pulled a goal back in the 65th minute and Billy Biddis fired just wide as the visitors got on top. Right on the stroke of tome Gilbert scored his second to secure the hosts passage to the third round.

Holders St Minver, although their reserves side this season, maintained their hold on the trophy beating Looe Town 4-1. Ben Cleave fired a twenty-five yard opener in the 47th minute. Looe equalised five minutes later before the hosts went on for a comfortable win. Luke Henderson flicked home following a free kick to restore their lead with Ed Green hitting the third with a fine shot from outside the box. In the 85th minute a smart turn and shot from Jason Northcott confirmed their win.

Dan Couch hit a hat trick and Lee Newton and Karl Croft a brace apiece as St Breward eased past Week St Mary 7-1.

JJ Jones & Sons Duchy Football League - Saturday October 21st 2017

The Duchy programme was decimated by the stormy weather on cup first round day, which will impact future fixture arrangements.

In the KMD Developments Knock Out Cup St Stephen won the tie of the round beating Veryan 3-1. This was a much better display from St Stephen who with their backs to the wind had four chances to score before a Jay Davie goal set them on the way to win this tight fought match.  In the 23rd minute a run from defence by St Stephen defender Joe Stone got him into the Veryan half and a great pass deflected off a Veryan defender into the path of Craig Coad who slotted the ball in at the near post for their second. In the second half playing against a strong wind St Stephen went 3-0 up when Stone again ran in on the Veryan goal and slotted a great strike into the far corner of the net in the 52nd minute. Veryan scored on 68minutes but the goal was ruled out as referee Jon Harris had blown for a foul just before the ball was kicked into the net. St Stephen held out until the 88th minute when a bad pass from the St Stephen keeper out of his box was pounced upon and Alex Pearce scored. A great win against a strong Veryan side. 

St Breward came very close to causing an upset against Premier Division North Petherwin. They were leading 2-1 when the visitors equalised with virtually the last kick of normal time. In the extra time period North Petherwin scored once to progress 3-2 to the next round. Martin Jago and Nathan Jasper were the home marksmen.

St.Dominick moved into the next round of the Cup with a fairly comprehensive 8-0 win against Tintagel. A strong wind and heavy blustery showers made good football difficult, but the Saints kept the ball on the ground and were soon on the offensive. In the opening five minutes the ball was cleared off the line three times in quick succession. Liam Bryant and Kieran Wenmouth both went close before four goals in the space of eight minutes settled the match. On twenty five minutes, Liam Bryant beat the offside trap to score a good goal and two minutes later Callum Searle fired in number two. On the half hour, Charlie Coates rattled in the third and two minutes later Searle got his second and the Saints fourth. In a rare attack by the visitors Sam Nicholson pulled off a good save to prevent them from reducing the deficit. Tintagel started in more determined fashion but could not break down the Saints defence. On sixty five minutes, Coates scored number five and in the remaining time, substitute Alex Mortimore scored a fine hat trick to give the Saints a well-deserved victory.

Lamerton Community progressed to the first round of the Bodmin Sports Trophies League Cup after winning their preliminary round tie at High Street 8-2. The home side struggled to patch together a team for this fixture with their small squad and a lack of commitments from some players so fair play for them fulfilling the fixture. Their high flying opponents were always likely winners and a Nathan Panter hat trick and a Robbie Court brace saw them to a comfortable win. Daryl Panter, Paul Cowling and Blair Vanstone completed the Lamerton scoring with Jepson and Chris Lock getting the High Street consolation goals.

In the first round St Dennis Thirds came from behind with a late winner at Tregony as the game ended 4-3 to the visitors. Tregony were two up after twenty-five minutes with goals from Owen Trudgeon and Danny Hughes. Against the run of play St Dennis pulled a goal back on the stroke of half time from a well-worked move. Tregony were awarded a penalty ten minutes into the second half, which was well saved but Trudgeon was first to the rebound to score his second. A quickly taken free kick saw St Dennis pull another goal back which was followed by an exceptional strike as they drew level. With time running out the referee overruled a linesman’s flag and St Dennis scored a controversial winner. The St Dennis scorers were Nathan Hugh with a brace, Nathan McGall and Rob Astin.

Jordan Willmott scored a hat trick as St Stephen reserves secured a surprisingly easy passage with a 4-0 win at Stoke Climsland. Chris Mullen scored their other goal.

Lostwithiel reserves travelled to St Anns Chapel and came away with a 7-3 win. Liam Rooney hit a hat trick with Kevin McCormack adding a brace for Lostwithiel. Ronan Cummings and Chris Massey completed the visitors tally. St Anns replied through Dean Smith and a George Striplin brace.

St Kew were beaten 7-2 at home by Southgate Seniors in their first duchy cup tie. Kelvin Hayes and Ryan Brown scored the home consolation goals.

Out of the small league programme scheduled just one game survived in Division Three where Lifton beat Dobwalls 3-2 to go level on points at the top although sitting fourth on goal difference. George Murrain, Darren Volz and Josh Nancarrow scored for Lifton with Dobwalls replying with a goal from Lenny Hummagain and an own goal.

JJ Jones & Sons Duchy Football League - Saturday 23rd September 2017

Sticker go top of the Premier Division after a comprehensive six nil home defeat of Saltash United The two teams were well matched in the opening exchanges and it was not until the twenty fifth minute that the home side took the lead when after the referee had waived away appeals for a foul Jack Boardman sneaked a shot just beyond the outstretched arms of the visiting keeper. The lead was doubled on forty minutes when debutant Luke Trewhella opened his account. Saltash lost a man to a straight red in the fifty fifth minute which didn’t help their cause and within five minutes Trewhella had doubled his tally with a strong header from a corner. It was 4-0 after seventy minutes when good play between Boardman and Harvey Hann saw the latter shoot home. Sticker were now coasting and Trewhella scored number five to complete his hat-trick and with minutes remaining Lewis Clapham completed the scoring for number six.

St Mawgan are up to second after a hard earned 2-0 win at North Petherwin. The first half proved a hard battle for the visitors but second half goals from Chris Jordan and Brett prentice secured the points.

Torpoint took the lead and stunned visitors Veryan with a goal in the first minute by Byron Robbins. Torpoint then kept up the pressure up until half time. In the second half the visitors came out the brightest with two goals in the 50th and 65th minutes from Derek Lucas. Lucas then made his hat trick to complete a 3-1 win scoring with a lovely angled shot from the edge of the area after their goalkeeper put a massive ball in.

St Stephen proved too strong and experienced as they won 4-2 at Gerrans & St Mawes United. Craig Coad scored a brace with Courtney Rowe and Joe Stone completing the visitors tally. GSM replied through Charlie Andrew and Rory Jarvis.

Josh Cook scored a penalty for Lostwithiel after 5 minutes and Rory Barnicle equalised for Biscovey on 40 minutes with a shot that went through the defenders legs on the line. Both teams pushed for a winner in the second half with Alex Woodcock missing a one on one for Biscovey. Lostwithiel scored the winner through Bailey Phillips on the break with about 20 minutes remaining as the visitors won 2-1.

Boscastle maintain top spot in Division One and ended Queens Rangers 100 per cent start following a one all away draw. Jake Dickinson scored for Boscastle and Casey Laity for Queens.

Holywell/Cubert Athletic picked up their first points of the season at the fifth attempt following their 6-4 victory over North Hill. The wind was very much a factor as Holywell went into half time 4-2 down against the wind, but scored four unanswered goals in the second half. Lee Mann scored a hat trick for the hosts with Rian Faulkner adding a brace and Luke Williams completing the home tally. North Hill replied with a James Bloomfield brace and goals from James Goodman and Dan Gregory.

Josh Dark gave St Merryn the lead in the first half of their match with AFC Bodmin. Corey Stewart then equalised in the second half and fifteen minutes from the end Mike Horne scored the winner for Bodmin. A great display by Will Woods in the St Merryn goal kept the hosts in the game.

St Breward lost a chance to return to the top of Division Two when held goalless in a tight game at Saltash United reserves. Both sides had penalty kicks saved, St Breward in the first half and Saltash in the second.

Stoke Climsland remain top but dropped their first in a two all draw with Lanivet inn, which also saw the visitors pick up their first point of the season. Jack Lowden and Stuart Fort were the Stoke scorers.

St Minver reserves took a 7th minute lead from the penalty spot from Paul Dingle. However, it went badly downhill from there with Tregrehan Mills running out 6-1 winners. Sam Rowse scored a brace for the visitors with Tom Foster, Dom Swire, Tom Adams and Gareth Smith adding a goal apiece.

Seven days after a defeat at Lanreath, St Stephen turned the tables over their rivals to secure a 5-1 win in Division Three. The game was only three minutes old when Lanreath scored a goal tucked in at the far post by Adam Parry. St Stephen fought back and were awarded a penalty in the 26th minute. Reece Willmott took the penalty and missed placing the ball wide of the post, but on 32 minutes his brother Kyle scored with a firmly struck shot from the edge of the area. Anouar Jamai hit the post a few minutes later for St Stephen and on 43 minutes Reece Willmott scored from the penalty spot this time, when his other brother Jordan was pushed in the back in the box. The second half was 16 minutes old when Rodney Rickard scored flicking the ball in from a corner at the near post. In the 68th minute Jordan Willmott scored after being put through by substitute Chris Kellow, and the game was wrapped up in the 89th minute when a good passing move ended with another substitute Chris Mullen netting.

Lamerton Community already appear to be the team to beat in this division. They were 1-0 at High Street at half time before the home team lost all their composure and slumped to a 10 -1 defeat. Nathan Panter scored four goals with Robbie Court adding a hat trick. The Lamerton scoring was completed by Glen Holmes, Daryl Panter and Graham Galway.

Division Four leaders Polperro visited second place Southgate Seniors and consolidated their place at the top with a 3-1 victory. Kyle Tamblyn gave Polperro a 15th minute lead and they were worthy of more goals in the first period. Tom Cantwell doubled their lead five minutes into the second half but they then took their foot off the gas and Toby knights deservedly put Southgate back in the game with fifteen minutes remaining. The remainder of the game was scrappy but Polperro debutant Liam Faulkner fired home for the third to seal the points.

Wadebridge Town have made a far brighter start this season than they did twelve months ago and sit second with Daniel O’Hara scoring four times as they hit five without reply at home to North Petherwin reserves. Jordan Stone completed the scoring.

A Kristian Stafford hat trick helped St Kew to a 4-0 win at Boscastle reserves. Adam Clements completed the visitors tally.

In the Cornwall Junior Cup Foxhole beat Altarnun 4-1. The visitors took the lead and their keeper saved a penalty before Foxhole fought back to progress. Levi Kerrigan and Danny Denning scored a goal apiece but it was the introduction of Martin Gilbert, who scored a brace, which had the biggest impact on the game.

JJ Jones & Sons Duchy Football League - Saturday 16th September 2017

In the Premier Division St Stephen beat North Petherwin 6-4 to inflict the visitors with their first defeat of the season. St Stephen went ahead in the 7th minute through Luke Damerell but could only hold on to the lead for five minutes when Mark Elvidge equalised. Within a minute Craig Coad restored the hosts lead when he got on the end of a fine cross by Curtis Dalby. The second half was twelve minutes old when Jay Davie made it 3-1 as a shot from Coad hit the inside of the post and fell to his feet to score. In the 61st minute Coad was fouled in the box and Courtney Rowe scored from the spot. Damerell scored his second goal and St Stephens fifth when he reacted first to a free-kick and then on 75 minutes Davie scored the goal of the game getting on the end of a cross and guiding the ball up and over the visiting keeper into the top of the net. North Petherwin fought back with two headed goals from Joe Reeve both from corners in the 78th and 80th minute and 8 minutes later Cameron Bailey tapped the ball home for their fourth goal after home keeper Kieran Broadfield made a great save but the ball ran to Bailey who made no mistake. Luckily St Stephen hung on for the win and a vital 3 points. 

Foxhole took the lead at Biscovey with an early strike from Martin Gilbert. Rory Barnicle equalised in the 35th minute capitalizing on sloppy defending and on the stroke of half time Barnicle scored a second from a long clearance from the keeper to put Biscovey ahead. Foxhole levelled in the second half when Gilbert’s strike hit the bar and rebounded to Bradley Allen to score. With time running out Ryan Wilkins hit a superb winner as Foxhole ran out 3-2 winners.

Ali Bicknell gave St Mawgan a 19th minute lead at home to Veryan. The hosts doubled the lead in the 37th minute through Alex Coles and scored a third in the 56th minute. St Mawgan made a number of changes of personnel and lost their grip on the game as Veryan pulled a goal back on the hour from Aaron Moyses. Damon Mulready further reduced the arrears from the penalty spot but St Mawgan held on for a 3-2 win.

Torpoint Athletic are off the bottom after a stunning 6-1 win at Gerrans & St Mawes United. Justin Norman, Byron Robbins and Curtis Damerell scored a brace apiece as the hosts learnt a harsh lesson in the top flight. Charlie Jones scored the home consolation.

Leaders Boscastle thrashed Callington Town hitting eight without reply with Martin Heal and Dan Piper both hitting hat tricks. The rout was completed by James Bosley and Jack Farbrother.

Martyn Probert scored five goals in St Newlyn East’s 17 (seventeen) to one win at Pelynt and has now scored sixteen goals in just five games. This was Newlyn’s second very high score this season.

Previously unbeaten Rame Peninsula were stunned by a 5-1 home defeat to Roche. Zach Rosen was the host’s scorer but the visitors took the spoils with a Dean Burnett brace and further goals from Shane Weeks, on his debut, Peter Thomas and Paul Osbourne.

St Eval Spitfires are off the mark following a 6-3 success at Delabole United. Lucasz Kulig scored a brace with Jon Summerfield, Rob Rowe, Fran Riddle and River Rojano adding a goal apiece for the visitors. Delabole replied with goals from Stuart Hill, Luke King and Glen Burrell.

Looe Town picked up their first points of the season in Division Five defeating Week St Mary 3-1. This was a good performance from the promising youngsters at Looe, they were quicker, sharper and wanted it more than the visitors but didn't totally dominate. Week St Mary did create chances throughout the game but lacked that extra something needed to convert them into goals. A cracking strike by Archie Sweeney put Looe ahead after 20 minutes but Frank Barriball had levelled by the break. Fifteen minutes into the second period Max Anderson got the all-important second for Looe from the penalty spot which left Week fighting against the odds up the slope, and it was Anderson again that wrapped up the scoring with 20 minutes remaining.

Tregony maintained their good start with a 5-3 win at home to Boscastle reserves where Owen Trudgeon hit a hat trick. Luke Worrall completed the home scoring with a brace while Boscastle replied through Aiden Hewitt, Mark Rawlings and an own goal.

JJ Jones & Sons Duchy Football League - Saturday 9th September 2017

Gerrans & St Mawes United picked up their first win in the Premier Division beating Foxhole 5-2 and in doing so knocking the visitors off the top of the table. Andy Harris scored a brace with Rory Jarvis, Charlie Jones and Callum Grahamslaw completing the hosts tally. Foxhole replied with a Lee Reed-Bennett brace.

St Stephen went 1-0 down in the 6th minute at Veryan to a well worked goal down the right by Dan Vincent and the hosts doubled their lead in the 31st minute when Justin Trebilcock gambled on a long goalkeeper clearance and finished first time. Right on the stroke of half time Jay Davie pulled a goal back with a high volley at the far post. The second half was a minute old when St Stephen were awarded a penalty which Courtney Rowe scored. So it was 2-2 and game on. Chances came at both ends but on 84 minutes from a Veryan corner Lee Whetter was judged by the referee to have pushed a Veryan player in the back and they were awarded a penalty which Damon Mulready scored for what proved the winner. Whetter was sin binned for his protestations and although St Stephen were now down to ten men they attacked but were unable to get an equaliser as Veryan ran out 3-2 winners.

St Dennis got the better of Torpoint Athletic in a ten goal thriller with the hosts running out 6-4 winners and as a result take over at the top. Adam Gamble and Chris Brown scored a brace apiece for St Dennis with Richard Griffin, on his debut after a transfer from Biscovey, and Paul Rowe claiming the hosts other goals.

Sticker missed the chance of going top after being held two all at home by draw specialists North Petherwin. An entertaining game throughout spoilt by a strong wind blowing down the pitch. Sticker had more of the early play with the elements behind them in the first half and took the lead on thirty minutes, good work by Harvey Hann with the ball falling to Lewis Clapham who coolly slotted home. The lead was doubled five minutes later when a great shot from Jack Boardman beat the substitute keeper. After the break North Petherwin came more into the game and pulled a goal back with a crisp strike from Mark Elvidge. With time running out an unfortunate deflection from home defender Adam Cleaves gave the visitors a share of the points.

Saltash United picked up their first point of the season from a two all home draw with St Mawgan. A fairly stiff breeze and the grass a tad too long didn’t make it easy for good passing football but both sides gave it a go. Saltash were the better side in the first half and deservedly took the lead through a 25th minute Tony Jane goal St Mawgan only threatened on the break but excellent finishing from James Olsen and Bonar Maull saw them 2-1 up at the break. The home side kept up the pressure in the second half but couldn’t find an equaliser and even missed a penalty. With a few minutes remaining a desperate defensive clearing header soared into the net and Saltash salvaged a point.

Lostwithiel were beaten 3-1 at home by Biscovey. Karl Orchard, Rory Barnicle and Chris Burns were the Biscovey scorers with Chris Chandler replying.

A top of the table clash in Division One ended with honours even as overnight leaders Boscastle fought out a goalless draw at Godolphin Atlantic.

Queens Rangers won a third successive game beating Pelynt at home by four goals to nil. Casey Laity hit a brace with Jordan Friendship and Jamie leavers adding a goal apiece.

AFC Bodmin would have gone top with a win at home to St Newlyn East, but a 3-0 defeat sees them drop to fifth with Newlyn going second just a point behind Boscastle. This was the visitor’s best display so far this season with the goals coming from Martyn Probert, Elliott Powell and Ross London

St Dominick move third after a thumping 7-0 win over Holywell/Cubert Athletic which leaves the visitors still pointless. The Saints were two goals to the good within ten minutes. Callum Seale cut in from the left to score a cracker and then Ben Jeffery scored the second from close range. On twenty minutes, Liam Bryant put in Jeffery to knock number three. Holywell came back and only two excellent saves from Sam Nicholson in the Saints goal stopped them from reducing the arrears.
In further attacks Kieran Wenmouth and Nathan Behennah went very close to adding to the score.
The second half was all the Saints with Bryant going just wide and Charlie Coates hitting the post with the keeper well beaten. On fifty five minutes Bryant slotted in number four and it could have been more with Coates and Bryant having efforts cleared off the line. With the visitors tiring the Saints scored three more in the final fifteen minutes. Martin Hunn rattled in number five, Coates notched number six and Hunn finished the game off from the penalty spot after Coates had been upended in the box. This was a good win for the Saints but credit to Holywell who never gave up.

St Breward continued their good start in Division Two with Luke Richards netting a brace as they beat Pensilva 4-2. Martin Jago and Karl Croft completed the home tally with Mike Rendle getting a brace in reply for Pensilva.

St Columb Major secured a first win beating Lanivet inn 4-3. Dan Ball, Scott Taylor, Tom Ball and Craig Allen for St Columb with Darren Martindale, Connor Mewton and Ollie Brown replying.

Foxhole reserves were in sparkling form at home to Lifton winning their Division Three clash 7-1. Ryan James gave them an 18th minute lead but this was wiped out by an equaliser from Anthony Coles seven minutes later. Foxhole restored their lead before half time and were unstoppable after the break scoring five more goals. Jim Penhall scored four times, James added a second with Jamie Robinson completing their tally.

Delabole United and High Street shared six goals. Mac Irwin, Lee Dungey and Glen Burrell scored for Delabole with Ryan Best (2) and Mark Gurney replying for the visitors.

The two early season leaders in Division Four met with Southgate Seniors leapfrogging Lostwithiel reserves to the top spot with a resounding 6-0 win. Tom Hancock scored a hat trick with Brandon Stott, Josh Barron and Glen Charnock completing the rout.

Looe Town are still seeking a first point of the season after going down to a 5-0 away defeat at Wadebridge Town. Ryan Parsons scored a brace with Shane Hearn, Jonny May and Nick Dowling adding a goal apiece to give the hosts a comfortable win.

Boscastle reserves went down heavily at home to Polperro with the visitors hitting six without reply. Kyle Tamblin scored twice with the remaining goals shared between Callum Buck, Tyler Collins, Antony Harman and Jordan Dennis.

St Anns Chapel only won once all last season so they will be relieved to get an early win this term. Two Jon Wild goals saw them defeat St Mawgan reserves 2-1. The visitors replied through Chris Leach.

Tregony thrashed St Kew 8-1, the game only going ahead with a St Kew official taking the whistle. Owen Trudgeon and Martin Woolcock scored a brace apiece with the other home goals coming from Luke Worrall, Steve Floyd-Norris, Jamie Smith and Jake Foster. Craig Terry scored the St Kew consolation.

JJ Jones & Sons Duchy Football League - Saturday 2nd September 2017

Foxhole dropped their first points of the season in the Premier Division throwing away a two goal lead after Lostwithiel were reduced to ten men. Martin Gilbert gave Foxhole a first half lead with Lee Reed-Bennett stretching the advantage after half time. Lostwithiel then had a player dismissed but this inspired a fight back with a Dan Carr penalty and a Lee Ashton goal securing a two all draw.

Lee Welsh gave Saltash United the lead at Veryan. The response from the home players was excellent as they hit back to win 5-1. Dan Vincent scored a brace. Derrick Lucas also scored a brace and was denied a hat trick by a fantastic penalty kick save by the Saltash keeper. Liam Cope completed the scoring.

Sticker started against Torpoint wanting to avenge last season’s cup defeat and went about attacking and scored a superb goal through Jowan Dingle who received the ball and swerved right past a defender and shot early which took the keeper by surprise with the ball nestling into the net. Torpoint were back on level terms shortly after with a well worked goal from Byron Robins.1-1. H/T. Torpoint came out of the blocks first and put Sticker under severe pressure and after a slight misjudgement from keeper Ethan Elwell he brought down a Torpoint player for referee Paul Roberts to award an easy penalty decision which was duly converted by Matt Westall. Sticker fought back and equalised with a stunner from Jack Boardman who jinked past two players before unleashing a screamer into the top corner. Sticker were now gaining confidence and pressing forward at every opportunity with the experienced James Avery heavily involved. The ever hardworking Brandon Pomeroy created the next Sticker goal by sheer determination he tackled the slight Torpoint winger right by the corner flag lost it, then won it back again, sprinted forward and crossed the ball near post for the alert Boardman to score his second and Stickers third. Torpoint were still pressing forward but the Sticker back line with captain Adam Cleaves and another experienced player Ian Grigg dominating play. Sticker scored a fourth and final goal to wrap the game up when James Avery again bursting forward unselfishly pushed the ball into the path of Harvey Hann who with aplomb cheekily chipped the keeper for a well-deserved 4-2victory.

Sticker beat Torpoint Athletic 4-2. Jack Boardman scored a brace with Jowan Dingle and Harvey Hann completing the hosts tally. Torpoint replied through Byron Robbins and Matt Westall.

St Dominick won a second successive game in Division One winning 6-0 at Pelynt. The first half was mediocre fare with Liam Hunn driving in the only goal in the 18th minute. The second half also started at a slow pace but three goals in five minutes settled the contest. Callum Searle scored in the 70th minute after a good run and shot. A minute later Liam Bryant set up Searle for his second. Keiran Searle scored the fourth goal in the 75th minute and with the home side tiring against a young Dominick side the visitors scored twice more. Callum Searle completed his hat trick in the 82nd minute and Nathan Behennah completed the scoring two minutes from time.

Leaders Boscastle made it three wins from three games after thrashing Holywell/Cubert Athletic 9-3. Rob Heal scored a brace.

Ryan Martin hit a hat trick as Godolphin Atlantic beat Callington Town 7-2. Callum Faulkner, Jacob Grange, Lee Budge, and Lee Paxton completed the home tally. Aidan Bryant and Martin Ridgment replied for Callington.

St Newlyn East are having an incredible unlucky spell in the keeper department. Their first choice keeper broke a collar bone in midweek and newly signed replacement Wayne Roberts lasted only six minutes of their match with Gunnislake before being forced off with a torn calf muscle. Chris Hall took his place in goal but on 20 minutes their fortunes changed when Martyn Probert fired them ahead and Spencer Gaylard added a second on the stroke of half time. Mike Bluett pulled a goal back for Gunnislake in the 49th minute with a bit of a gift from the stand in keeper. Newlyn who were a little sloppy early on then started to produce their best form and Jack Thompson scored their third from a scuffed shot in the 54th minute. Gaylard added his second in the 63rd minute and Ross London completed a 6-1 win with a powerful drive. Newlyn’s day ended on another sour note with Chris Hall the stand in keeper also having to leave the field with an injury.

Tregrehan Mills got their season underway in Division Two with a 4-1 win over Calstock on a hastily prepared pitch at Par track with the game in grave danger of not going ahead on Friday. Dean Dingle scored the only goal of the first half in the 40th minute and he doubled the lead after the restart with a rare header at the near post. Calstock pulled a goal back on the hour with the ball bundled into the net by Mike Palmer. Sam Rowse squared for Dom Swire to restore the hosts two goal lead and then Rowse scored the fourth near the end.

Saltash United reserves lost a tight game at home to Tintagel. The game’s only goal came from Joe Gibson.

Altarnun travelled to Lanivet Inn and won 4-0. Altarnun took the lead just after half time of an even game through Sam Smith.

Stuart Cole claimed their other goal.

Josh Sanders put Petherwin ahead with Luke Worrall levelling from the spot. The same two players then scored again in sequence. Dan Hancock restored the home lead only for Owen Trudgeon to restore parity. Liam Rich put Petherwin back in from but back came Tregony again with Martin Woolcock scoring.

JJ Jones & Sons Duchy Football League - Saturday 26th August 2017

Premier Division newcomers Sticker took a first half lead at Foxhole. Home defender Steve Kellow conceded a penalty, which was converted by Jack Boardman. Foxhole took control in the second half and were dominant. It took until the 80th minute to get the equaliser when the Sticker keeper conceded a penalty and was shown a straight red card for the challenge. Phil Hutchings stepped up to equalise from the spot. Within five minutes Foxhole scored what proved the winner through Lee Reed-Bennett.

St Stephen showed their credentials as potential champions with a fine 4-3 win at Saltash United, another club expected to challenge in what promises to be the most competitive top division for a long time. St Stephen had the first opportunity through Ben Willetts when his shot was pushed around the post by the diving Saltash keeper and from the resulting corner Craig Coad scored from close in on 13 minutes. Saltash drew level on 27 minutes with a fluke of a goal but St Stephen replied two minutes later when a break down the left wing by Courtney Rowe ended with a cross to the far post for Ben Willetts to score. In the 38th minute a punched clearance by Kyle Willmott looped over his head to be finally knocked into the St Stephen goal that was flagged for hand ball but was allowed to stand by referee Ollie Willcocks. On the stroke of half time Willmott pulled of a great save to keep the score at 2-2 at half time. The second half was delayed when the referee had a bad nose bleed before coming out of his room and kicked off 12 minutes late. In the 55th minute Saltash took the lead this time a great shot into the roof of the net. St Stephen drew level on 75 minutes when a 25 yard screamer from Rowe smashed into the top of the net leaving the keeper stranded. A shot on 83 minutes from Courtney Rowe hit the bar with the winner coming from Luke Damerell on 88 minutes as he got the final touch in a goalmouth scramble. Saltash’s scorers were a Karl Whitehead brace and a Tony Jane goal. North Petherwin drew one all with Gerrans & St Mawes United. Ryan Julian was the home scorer with Keegan Lloyd getting the visitors reply. .

Boscastle were in fine form hitting seven without reply at home to Gunnislake. Martin Heal and Sam Haddy scored a brace apiece with the other goals coming from James Bosley, Matt Pethick and Dan Piper.

St Newlyn East showed great character to get through two consecutive seasons of regular thrashings before stabilising last season. They welcomed Grampound for their first game of this season, a club that now faces the same daunting position having lost most of their first team and having recently folded their reserve side with those players largely responsible for keeping the club alive. Newlyn showed no sympathy to the visitors winning 17-1 but praised the opponents spirit and will understand the visitors feelings more than most. Martyn Probert scored five goals and Ross London four. Eliot Powell and Adam Williams hit a brace apiece with the remaining goals coming from Ollie Downing, Harry Mugford, Spencer Gaylard and an own goal. Grampound’s consolation came from Ryan Orchard.

St Cleer appear as one of the favourites in Division Two and their season started with a bang hitting five without reply at Calstock. Liam Donaghy scored four times with Sam Pengelly getting their other goal.

Lanivet inn will have to sharpen up their defending after a 5-4 home defeat to Saltash United reserves, having now conceded ten goals in two home games. The visitors were 3-1 up at half time before Lanivet restored parity but then gave it away again. The Saltash keeper received a ten minute sin bin partway through the second half for comments overheard by the referee Scott McKenzie who overall had a fine game. Saltash scorers were Troy Harris and Dan Summerfield, on his debut, with a brace apiece. Their other goal came from another debutant David Gump. Lanivet replied with a Jake Pearce brace, a Darren Lang free kick and their fourth goal, at the death, from Josh Bourne with a screaming shot.

Altarnun secured a first win beating Pensilva 5-1 with Sam Smith netting a hat trick. Ryan Crabb and an own goal completed the home scoring with Callum Dickinson getting the Pensilva reply.

Stoke Climsland’s 3-2 win over St Breward was marred by an injury to Dan Edwards that saw the young man taken to hospital with a dislocated wrist. Goals from Joe Norman, Ryan Allen and Alex Gard gave the hosts the points.

St Eval Spitfires newly promoted to Division Three welcomed Rame Peninsula who should be congratulated on making such a long journey on a Bank Holiday weekend. The visitors were rewarded with a 4-2 win with Fraser Benney netting a brace. White and Zach Rosen completed the Rame tally with St Eval replying through Mariusz Kopacz and a Steve Masters penalty.
