South West Peninsula League


Holsworthy V Hayle 24/09/11

We travelled to our neighbouring county on Saturday to play a Holsworthy team that are always difficult to beat on their own ground,  all players and staff were delighted to return to Cornwall with all three points.

Conditions were pretty perfect although the playing surface was very soft, both teams were a credit to their clubs as played some decent football.

The opening 20 minutes was pretty frantic affair with both midfields battling it out to control the game. Shaun Carter in the Hayle goal had very little to do apart from one noticable save from the Holsworthy striker on the 20 minute mark, the visitors always threatened when going forward with Duncan, Richards and Lawrence being prominent in attack.

It was Ross Duncan who fed Shane Richards on the 25 minutes, the striker seemed to go too wide of the goal, but he sweetly struck a left foot drive under the body of Ryan Walters for a deserved lead.  With Hayle still attacking it didn’t seem long before we added the 2nd.

The 2nd half continued in the same vain, with Bell, Roberts and Cadman holding the midfield together and picking up some good 2nd balls, even though we have some decent possession we lacked a cutting edge to finish the game off, Richards had a great chance on 55 minutes only to see his shot rebound off the post and cleared to safety.

Once again it was Ross Duncan causing the home defence concern, the speedy winger unleashed a shot from 18 yards into Walters bottom left corner after good work from Cadman.

The 2-0 lead didn’t last long, as some sloppy defending saw the Holsworthy midfielder Paul Banks score from close range. With 15 minutes remaining the home side applied some pressure but were unable to convert them into what would have been an underserved equaliser.

Hayle V Plymstock

Hayle entertained an improving Plymstock side who had an encouraging result
against Dobwalls midweek. The home side made one enforced from their game
against Porthleven with Matty Thomas (Hamstring) being replaced by Shane
Richards, who had recently signed from the Fisherman.

With weather conditions resembling a winter's afternoon at Trevassack Park,
free flowing football didn't seem to be on the menu, but both sides played
their part in an entertaining afternoon.
The visitors began the match a lot brighter with numerous attacks being
channelled down the left, with the U's striker Craig Holt playing a major
part. Shaun Carter once again showed why is has the Number 1 shirt with a
series of good saves, he was unable to do anything with Plymstock's opener,
Holt surged into the box and drilled the ball home from ten yards for a
deserved lead. This was a wake call for the home side and from here on Hayle
dominated the game. Kevin Lawrence who was outstanding throughout equalised
on the half an hour mark when Shane Richards crossed for Lawrence, he beat
two defenders and sent the ball crashing into the back of the net. The home
side counter attacked well and it was the lively Ross Duncan who ran into
the boxed only to fouled by their centre half, resulting in a penalty,
skipper Gary Bell stepped up and drilled home the spot kick, making the
score line 2-1 at half time.

After the break the similar pattern continued with the home side breaking
with real menace, Richards, Lawrence, and Duncan causing the visitors
defence problems, Adam Palmer who had a storming game at left back fed the
industrious Frasier Cadman, he then slotted a ball to Lawrence who made no
mistake from 8 yards. The visitors always looked a threat at set pieces but
found Rob Johns and Jo Cooper in commanding form. The game was finally put
to rest on the 65minute mark when Richards once again linked well with
Lawrence who scored from 5 yards to make the score 4-1. The home side made
several changes but Lawrence had not finished his scoring spree and left his
best goal to last, the pocket size battleship jinked in and out of two
defenders and sent the ball crashing to the keeping left to complete the

Wadebridge v Hayle

We travelled to Bodieve Park Wadebridge, last Saturday in good spirits after
a fine performance at Helston in midweek. We made one enforced change with
Adam Freethy being unavailable due to work commitments, replaced by Jason
Roberts returning from injury.

On a dry hard pitch both sides began the game at a high tempo, with Hayle
looking dangerous from the outset, Kevin Lawrence and Ross Duncan being
prominent in attack. Wadebridge also had their early moments but the Hayle
defence stood firm, Shaun carter was called into action on the 15mintue mark
when he saved well from Cudmore. The flow of the game was edged by the
visitors, and it came to no surprise when we opened the scoring, it was
great work down the right flank by Lawrence who found the in form striker
Matty Thomas, he showed quick feet in the 18 yard box to drilled past the
advancing keeper. Even though the Bridger's worked hard throughout they will
be disappointed with their general play in the final third, at the breakdown
we continued to dominate and Hayle found themselves 2-0 to the good, it was
another great delivery from Kevin Lawrence who picked out Jason Roberts who
smashed the ball pass the keeper for a great finish. With the visitors
coasting it was disappointing to concede a penalty soon after, Rob Johns who
played well throughout brought down the player after a poor challenge, the
player brushed himself off and scored from the resulting spot kick.
Hayle was not to be undone as their was still time for another goal before
the break, their was some good work between Mark Uren and Lawrence down the
right, a foul was committed by Bridger's defender, the industrious Frasier
Cadman took the free kick with great precision and picked out Jack Parton to
head home from 8 yards. To give us a 3-1 lead into half time.

After the break both sides lost their way a little with the Bridger's seeing
a little more of the ball, at times we were under pressure with some sloppy
passing being our downfall, once again their final ball letting the home
side down.
We always looked a constant threat going forward with Matty Thomas working
the line really well. The game fizzled out in the 2nd half which suited the
visitors as they picked up their first win of the campaign.

On Monday we battled out a 2-2 home draw against Porthleven. Jo Cooper and
Ross Duncan both getting their first goals of the season. Even though we
conceded an injury time goal, Porthleven were good value for their point
after a fine first half display.

Helston v Hayle

After a disappointing result at Doballs on the opening day of the season, we
found ourselves travelling to newly promoted JCCL Champions Helston
Athletic, they had tremendous 5-1 win against Plymstock and started their
league campaign in fine form.
Unfortunately for this match we lost the services of first choice keeper
Shaun Carter(work) and Jason Roberts (Injured).

Preparation was far from ideal with players having trouble fighting through
the summer traffic, fortunately this did not hamper what was too follow in
the next 90mins.

Both sides began in a frantic manner with Helston settling to the pace of
the game a little better, we found ourselves lacking some belief and
composure, you could see that confidence was a little dented after
Saturday's game. Helston boasted two forwards in Mark Goldsworthy and Liam
Eddy who had genuine pace and it was very pleasing how the defence coped
throughout the game with these two front runners.

We finally settled after 15mins and began to compete in all the areas around
the pitch. It was unfortunate we conceded the opening goal after 18mins
against the run of play. Heston's central defender sent a long ball forward,
this eluded Jack Parton and fell in the path of Liam Eddy, Parton did
extremely well to block the initial shot only for the ball to rebound off
his shoulder and back to Eddy who calmly slotted the ball home past the
impressive Ryan Gendall.

We looked slightly deflated after the goal but it didn't take us long to get
back playing some good football, with Bell, Cadman, and Freethy prominent in
midfield. As the half went on we became the dominant force and got our just
rewards on the 30minutes which saw a five man move and a tremendous team
goal with Matty Thomas finishing from 10yards into the top right corner.
Hayle continued to press with Ross Duncan and Kevin Lawerence causing major
damage down both flanks. Half Time Score 1-1

The second half began in the same vain with Helston starting well and
pressing hard, but the Hayle back five were playing extremely well, Ryan
Gendall on debut only had to deal with a couple of long range efforts and
was solid throughout. At the other end Hayle always looked dangerous on the
attack with Thomas working very hard for the team and was very unlucky not
to add to his tally for the evening. As the game progressed it became a
little scrappy has tempers flared, this resulted in Bell and Freethy seeing
Yellow, and it was Freethy who was sent his marching orders on 75mins with
another booking, it looked very harsh from the touchlines. Credit has to go
to the whole team who stuck to their job after being reduced to Ten men and
gained a valuable point away from Home.
