CORNWALL AIRPORT NEWQUAY DUCHY LEAGUE

Stoke Climsland made a fine start in their first ever game in the Premier Division with a 5-1 victory at Boscastle. Last season’s Division One champions beat their more experienced rivals comfortably on the day. Luke Worrall scored a brace with Kieran Hurrell, Josh Pope and Jamie Campbell adding a goal apiece for Stoke. Boscastle replied with a consolation goal from Olly Edwards. 

Lostwithiel are the early leaders after securing a second home win of the season. They beat St Merryn 4-2 with new signing Darren Lang hitting a brace. Bailey Phillips and Jordan Cummings completed the Lostwithiel tally with Jordan Carthew and Robbie Duncanson replying for the visitors. 

In Division One a second half collapse led to Dobwalls reserves suffering a heavy 11-3 defeat at FC Tavyside. There was little sign of such a score-line at half time as a good game stood at two all. As the game progressed the Dobwalls players tired badly in the heat and goals flowed for the home team. Sam Hicks and Graham Galway both scored four times with Ollie Gourd, Owen Staples and Dan Behennah completing the host’s tally. Dobwalls replied through Ben Gaynor, Sam Prinn and Sam Hummagain. 

Polperro reserves raced in to a 2-0 lead playing a direct style of football at Lifton, Andy Cordner scoring both goals. Lifton got one back just before half time through Connor Everitt. In the second half Lifton played the better football passing the ball around and tiring their opponents scoring a further 5 without reply as the game ended in a 6-2 home win. Liam Rich and Nathan Farrer scored a brace apiece with Jake Murrain also on target.

Last season’s Division Four one-two find themselves in Division Two following all the County football re-organisation throughout the summer, but their opening results show that they will continue to be a force. Jordi Willmott was the league’s leading scorer last season and he opened with five goals as Nanpean Rovers beat St Cleer reserves 7-1. Reece Willmott added a brace for Nanpean with Matt Hill getting the St Cleer consolation. 

Bude Town Reserves finished just behind Nanpean last season but opened with a 3-1 win at St Eval Spitfires. Steve Box, Bradley Palmer and Lewis Hopgood scored for Bude with Jon Summerfield getting the home reply. 

Southgate Seniors opened with a 5-1 defeat of Lostwithiel reserves with Liam Cairns hitting a hat trick and Wayne Francome a brace. Lostwithiel replied with a Nathan Cummings goal. 

St Dominick reserves opened their season in Division Three with a 6-2 win at home to North Petherwin reserves. Saints were two up in the opening five minutes, the first from Kieran Jasper followed by Spencer Barrett. Jasper was then denied by a good save and Barrett had a shot blocked on the line as St Dominick continued to dominate. Jasper scored his second in the 50th minute with Callum Searle adding the fourth on the hour. Martin Hunn cleared of the line as North Petherwin threatened to pull one back, but Tarren Walsh scored the visitors fifth in the 75th minute. North Petherwin battled back with a brace in the 80th and 85th minutes from Mada Lin Boss but it was Jasper who had the final say completing his hat trick just before the final whistle. 

Grampound find themselves in the lowest division, but with a rebuilt squad in the summer have high hopes of a successful season. They opened with a 4-0 defeat of Bude Town Thirds with the first goal coming in the 8th minute when Dylan Fox outpaced the Bude defence and fired into the goal. The second came just before half time with a bizarre own goal by the visiting keeper as he let the ball slip into the goal. Bude created a couple of good chances in the first half but caused little trouble after the break. Sam Blount played a good one-two on the edge of the box before scoring the third with a good shot. The fourth came fifteen minutes from time when B J Walkham was brought down in the box and Dean Dunn converted the penalty.
