Callington 0 Sticker 2

Sticker in their penultimate match in their first season in the SWPL Premier division beat Callington away by 2 goals to nil.Scored by Player/Manager Andy Avery with his first goal of the season and Matt Lloyd. . Sticker lost to Callington only a couple of weeks ago under lights at Burngullow 1-3. So to-days result was sweet revenge. They now face Stoke Gabriel in their last game of this very tough season Stoke have fared a little better than Sticker this season so I'm sure the lads will want to finish on a high especially as Stoke have beaten Sticker twice already this season.

Team: J.Blatchford, J.Walker, A.Avery, M.Rowles-Jane, S.Kenny, B.Rosevear, M.Duff, R.Jarvis, M.Lloyd, T.Maye, J.Bowyer. Subs all used: J.Rogers, T.Peers, J.Cockings.

Sticker 2 Cullumpton Rangers 2

Sticker playing their penultimate home game and last one under lights started off very brightly and had plenty of thye play and took the lead direct from a corner taken by Frank McAvoy. 1-0.  Jack Bowyer added a second not long after when he received the ball on the left of the penalty area and beat two men before slotting it past the keeper. 2-0 A typical close control Jack Bowyer goal!! This seemed to wake the Cullumpton players up and had most of the play in the remaining part of the first half without creating any worthwhile efforts on goal. H/T.2-0.

  The second started exactly as the first half had finished with Sticker having to defend deep and Cullumpton making good use of the especially humping the ball up to their wide players particularly on the right wing where this player was very tricky and created all sorts of mayhem but Sticker held firm for a short while when a cross was flashed in and got a touch. 2-1. Sticker were really struggling now and even they were having to hump the ball forward but whereas we have Jack Bowyer who is lightening fast his strike partner Joel Cockings is not and consequently no sooner had the ball been pumped into the Cullumpton half it came straight back and usually found the right winger who waited while his team mates rushed forward en-masse to cause the Sticker defence to defend desperately. They managed this until another cross was flashed in and it looked liked the ball came off a Sticker players knee before ending up in the back of the net. 2-2. Cullumpton looked the they were going to get all three points now but Sticker would not lie down and player/manager Andy Avery and his partner and captain Mickey Rowles-Jane both  having a magnificent game urging their team mates forward.. Time for some substitutes! Sticker supporters favourite Matt Lloyd on followed by Andrew Butler and finally Rory Jarvis. two opportunities to win the game fell to firstly Matt Lloyd who burst through down the left advancing towards the keeper leaving the defender in his wake struck a wonderful left foot strike which just went over the bar. Not long after Jack Bowyer burst through but alas his first touch was too strong and he was unable to get his shot away as the keeper got to the ball first. F/T. 2-2. Honours even and a good entertaining game to watch enjoyed by both sets of supporters.

Team: J.Blatchford, J.Rogers, A.Avery, M.Rowles-Jane, S.Kenny, B.Rosevear, M.Duff, F.McAvoy, T.Peers, J.Cockings, J.Bowyer. Subs, M.Lloyd, A.Butler, R.Jarvis All used.

Newquay 0 Sticker 1

 Sticker bounced back from a disappointing defeat against Camelford earlier in the week by beating Newquay away from home with a really late 94th minute winner scored by and yes youv'e guessed Jack Bowyer who now has scored 30 goals in this very difficult season. Jack will no doubt be pleased scoring the winner after his couple of misses against the Camels. F/T. 0-1

Sticker 1 Camelford 2

Sticker playing their third game in four days were unable to stop tonights opponents Camelford from recording their fifth straight winning streak but they certainly gave it a damn good try. The weather againd proved to be rotten for both sets of players with a strong wind and drizzling rain which had  been falling for most of the day which  made the pitch very skiddy on the surface so ball control was difficult but Sticker still tried to play the short passing game at times and they scored first with a quick break and ball came out to left of the box and Tim Peers came steaming in and hit a superb drive which the keeper could not hold and Jack Bowyer pounced and drove the ball in. 1-0. Camelford like most of the teams in this league like to punt the ball long and they had two big mobile front men who were always willing to chase and it was one of them that connected and slid the ball past Jamie Blatchford in goal 1-1. 

 Camelford came out in the second half looking the stronger and put Sticker on the back foot for a while but Sticker got a hold on the game and two excellent chances fell for Jack Bowyer but on this occasion he shot tamely at the keeper who saved both easily. Tired legs perhaps which probably was the same for both sets of players. The game was swinging back and forth and it was Camelford who got the second crucial and as it turned out the winning goal when another long ball found the striker and as Jamie came out to narrow the angle the ball was shot and just crept inside the far post. 1-2. Player/Manager Andy Avery was driving his team on but alas it was not to be. F/T. 1-2. Andy and Gary and all the squad will be disappointed at losing to-night after such a positive weekend but they have three days to rest their weary legs before they travel to Newquay on Saturday.

Team: J.Blatchford, J.Walker(T.Maye), A.Avery, M.Rowles-Jane(G.Whielden), T.Peers, B.Rosevear, M.Duff, A.Butler,M.Lloyd, J.Cockings(R.Jarvis), J.Bowyer,

Witheridge 1 Sticker 6

Sticker playing their second game away in two days dragged their tired legs into the heart of Devon and showed some real character in beating Witheridge who they only drew with recently at home 1-1. Joel Cockings making the starting line up opened the scoring to set the scene 0-1, followed by a Jack Bowyer hat trick 0-4, Witheridge managed to pull one back to make it 1-4 then further goals from Joel Cockings and Frank Mcavoy making the final score 1-6. Making this the highest scoreline Sticker have acheived so far in the SWPL in this very tough season.

Plymouth Argyle Res. 1 Sticker 1

Sticker grab a valuable point against Plymouth Argyle Res, 1-1. In the first of this wekkends away games. Tomorrow they face Witheridge and is a 2.00pm k.o.

Tavistock 2 Sticker 1

Sticker were almost on the cusp of at last getting a result against one of the best teams in the league when in the first half the referee awarded Sticker an obvious  penalty without the need of his assistant but then was surrounded by a number of Tavistock players and changed his mind! Frustrating to say the least!! This was just before half time and then Tavistock went 1-0 up and to cap it all the referee awarded them a soft penalty which was converted 2-0. Sticker however pulled one back with a Jack Bowyer penalty and put Tavistock under tremendous pressure in the remaing minutes but were unable to find the equaliser. F/T. 2-1. This could have been the result of the season had the referee stuck to his original decision regarding awarding Sticker a penalty in the first half and referees wonder why they sometimes get such a hard time!!

The games in this League certainly don't get any easier!!
