St Breward 1 Sticker 1 AET & Pens 4-2

Sticker were ahead on three minutes with Eddie George sending a ball through to James Martin who took his goal well. A changed side with late withdrawals meant that Roy only had one player on the bench. Due to this the team were devoid of their free flowing play from the previous week and struggled to break down a determined home side who as the half progressed sensed their chance of a scalp. The home goal duly arrived in the thirty eighth minute. Half time 1-1. There was no further scoring in the second period although Sticker had the greater number of chances. Extra time could not produce a goal and the game went to penalties which the home side won by 4-2.

Sticker Reserves 4 Lostwithiel 1

Sticker Reserves kicked off their second league game of this season and started in a positive way with strong front running from James Martin and Eddie George and what a fine partnership they are forming and with excellent prompting from the midfield of Harry Boardman, Marco Barresi and Dan Hocking it tookjust  fifteen minutes when Eddie George sliced thoiugh the defence and laid a perfect ball for James Martin to open the scoring 1-0. The second goal was a real peach this time scored by Eddie George who has boundless energy ran through and lobbed evergreen Billy Davies the Lostwithiel keeper who could only watch in admiration as the ball sailed into the net. 2-0, There were excellent performance from all the Sticker players none more so than Aidan Leas with his tigerish tackling didn't let a thing go by him. Anther fine goal this time from a free kick came when Matt Boynton rose early at the near post to power in no.3 H/T. 3-0.

  The second half started and again it was the dynamic duo of George and Martin who scored the fourth and what was to be Stickers only goal this half when they played a one two between them before James let fly and the ball ended up into the corner of the net even though Billy got his fingers to the ball. 4-0. Sticker then relaxed somewhat which allowed Lostwithiel back into game as they showed more ambition and they got their consolation goal. 4-1. Sticker then made four substitutions to give the bench a chance of some play and this for a while upset the balance and allowed Lostwithiel more of the game. But as the game progressed they gradually got into the game and were creating more scoring chances and well cracking shot from Jack Boardman just whistled over the bar. Still Lostwithiel pressed forward so Eddie George was brought back on to steady the side and this worked a treat as he is a real asset to the team. F/T.4-1. Roy and Martin will be pleased at getting their win of the season and will hope to build on this with their bright young players!

Sticker Reserves 2 Godolphin Reserves 3

Sticker Reserves started this new season against a strong very experienced Godolphin side and it was they who controlled most of the first half and scored the one solitary goal when a long ball was punted upfield for the striker to run onto and score. 0-1. Sticker had defended valiantly in this half to keep Godolphin at bay. H/T.0-1

  The second half continued in the same way and Godolphin scored a second when a fierce shot took a horrible deflection past the Sticker keeper. 0-2. Game over you might have thought but Godolphin either ran out of puff or just took their foot off the gas. It was now Sticker's youngsters to push forward and push they did by harrying the Godolphin defence and using their incredible pace finally scored a good goal.1-2.Scored by James Evans. They were scampering around like rabbits causing mayhem in the Godolphin defence and driving their manager and coach mad. Finally Sticker equalised with a goal from the hard working Eddie George to make it 2-2. However instead of keeping the ball and seeing the game out as it was close to the end. They fell to a sucker punch and conceded a third goal in the dying minutes. F/T.2-3

Roy and Martin will be gutted to lose this way especially after their young  team had battled to get level but no doubt they will learn from this in the weeks to come but I have to say the future looke very bright!
