Sticker Reserves 0 Penwith Exiles 3

Sticker reserves bow out of the Junior Cup for the second season in a row. Sticker thought they had finally taken the lead late in the game when Bradley Smith curled in a beauty from wide on the right over the keepers head only for the referee to uphold the the decision by the dubious Penwith linesman who for the most of the game was giving offsides when his teammates were telling him to and raising his flag for offsides when he wasn't up with playand when there weren't players in offside positions but on this occasion he may have got it just right. Because when the ball was sailing over the keepers head and into the goal Jowan Dingle with his back to the keeper on the line was offside or obstructing the keeper!! After celebrating with all of the team and then realising that the goal had been disallowed Sticker just fell apart and lost three quick goals in succession to disappoiningly lose the game. F/T.0-3.

Sticker Reserves 1 St Stephen 4

Sticker Reserves hoping to consolidate their top of the league position today met their match with a very experienced and organised St Stephen side. The game started at a very brisk pace with both sides making quick breaks from long balls and Sticker were the first to capitalise with new signing Rory Jarvis racing past the St Stephen defence to slot the ball past the keper. 1-0. Sticker now had a good spell of possession and should have scored two more goals after good work on the right flank but both chances spurned. St Stephen came roaring back and two Sticker defensive errors gave the away side a two goal lead. 1-2. To Make matters worse another slip up gave St Stephen another goal before half time to make it 1-3. H/T.

  Sticker came out for the second half determined to try and get something from the game but although they had most of the possession could not find a way through the massed experienced St Stephen defence in fact the away sides keeper hardly had a save to make such was the reluctance of the Sticker players to shoot when they had the chance. In probalbly their only real proper attack with four players going forward St Stephen added a fourth and final nail into the Sticker coffin. F/T. 1-4. St Stephen leapfrog over Sticker to take the top spot in the league!

Half time 0-4. On fifty five minutes Jowan Dingle ran through unchallenged to shoot home number five and the same player doubled his tally five minutes later to make it six.

Sticker Reserves 2 North Petherwin 0

Sticker facing Nprth Petherwin again this time in the 2nd round of the Cornwall Junior cup and were mindful in their previous encounter that they threw away a two goal advantage so were determined not to let that happen again. North Patherwin were very competitive though and made a game of it stretching the Sticker defence on a number of occasions.They probably felt they had the better of the first half but it was Sticker who managed to score the opening goal after a couple of eary strikes that just missed the post. Harvey Haan who had a fine controlling forceful game strode into the box but the ball got stuck in his feet with his back to goal he stumbled but then got up and hooked a shot that the keeper managed to put out a hand and the ball then hit the crossbar and bounced out  to Jack Boardman who struck the ball into the far corner giving the keeper no chance. H/T. 1-0.

  The second half started with Sticker kicking with the wind and took full advantage very early on when a good through ball found Matt Searle and as the centre half slipped Matt went round him and stroked a well placed shot wide of the keepers right hand. 2-0. Sticker were more in control this half especially Harvey Haan who had an outstanding game in midfield.North Petherwin were still in it though and still very competitive but were not able to pierce the Sticker defence which was well marshalled by skipper Adam Cleaves. The match was well refereed by young Scott McKenzie who was not afraid to stamp his authority on the game. Sticker did add a third goal when a free kick was well struck and the keeper was unable to hold onto the ball and it bounced out to Matt Searle who lashed it into the net but the North Petherwin linesman had his flag raised and the ref went over and spoke to him as he had given the goal but decided to uphold the linesman's decision and disallow the goal. Sticker were unable to relax but saw out the remaining minutes for a deserved victory against a stubborn North Petherwin side.F/T. 2-0. Roy and Martin will be pleased to get into the third round of the cup and pleased with the determination shown by the players. They weren't allowed to play their usual free flowing game as the wind was blowing a bit at times and because of the opposition who made life difficult. Also the players were guilty of too many misplaced passes and their control let them down at times but give them credit they stuck at it and got their just reward. One final note a debut substitution for Roy's younger son Harry who is now old enough for mens football.

Sticker Reserves 1 Veryan 1

Sticker and Veryan shared the results 1-1 in a very entertaining and competitive match. Sticker wanting to continue their excellent unbeaten run were facing somewhat of a  nemesis as Veryan nearly always come out on top in their meetings. Veryan with a very experienced side with none other that Damon Mulready(ex St Austell)  who proved a real handful but he came up against a real stubborn Sticker defence especially Jowan Annear who had a magnificent game. Nonetheless when Veryan pushed foreward they looked very dangerous and had a number of chances but the resolute defence and keeper Tom Rowe kept them at bay. Sticker also looked dangerous going forward and also kept the Veryan defence busy and had a number of shots on goal but either they went wide or straight into the keepers arms. H/T. 0-0.

 The second half started with Sticker making a substitution bringing on old favourite Jack Walker in place of Lewis Clapham and it was good to see Jack getting involved. It was very cat and mouse with Veryan pressing very hard but Sticker held on and were finding success down the wings and after fifteen minutes finally broke the deadlock and it came from the diminutive Ashely Koppelow. The ball had been cleared from the keeper to another old Sticker Favourite playing for Veryan Bobby Lee-Johns who beautifully controlled the ball on the his ample chest and as the ball came down to his feet there was Ashley who nicked the ball off him and sped foreward and after three or four yards unleashed an absolute cracker of a shot which literally flew into the goal which the keeper could only watch in admiration as it went past him and into the net! The ground erupted into an appreciative applause for a stunning goal. 1-0. Veryan were stung but Sticker stayed strong until finally a through ball finally found a Veryan player who wasn't offside and as he tried to collect the ball out came Tom in goal to make a fantastic save at the players feet but alas the ball bobbled out of his grasp and at his second attempt to get the ball clipped the forwards legs and he fell over. The referee straight away pointed to the penalty spot. Jowan Annear in his protestations received a sin bin yellow and was off the pitch for ten minutes. Damon Mulready stepped up and scored the penalty.1-1.  Veryan were sensing they could now win the match against the ten men of Sticker but it was the home side who came closest. Jowan Dingle at last slipped past the last defender and home in on goal at the tightest of angles he tried another one of his chips and almost caught the keeper out but he managed to flick the ball away for a corner. Then Jack Boardman did beat the keeper with a crashing shot from a long way out but alas not the crossbar. Sticker were now the more dominant and pressing forward and had two free kicks and corners and each one found the head of Harvey Haan but he was unable to get any power or direction to-wards the goal. Finally the referee blew for full time to end the game which both sides will probably agree that a draw  was a fair result. F/T. 1-1.

Sticker 3 Biscovey 0

Sticker kicked off this Duchy Premier league game against Biscovey on a a horrible dismal afternoon where playing decent football wasn't easy as the skiddy surface of a rainsoaked pitch made control difficult. However this didn't stop Sticker trying. They started the most positive of the two teams and put Biscovey on the defensive straight from the kick off. The first chance fell to Jowan Dingle who sped through the defence and as the keeper came rushing out he shot the ball past him and wide of the goal with more confidence he would have gone round the keeper! Jowan had another effort and this time on the right closing in on goal this time he did the right thing and sent a delightful chip over the keepers head and everyone thought it had gone into the net but no it just went over!  Finally Sticker did open the scoring when  a short corner from Jack Boardman to Ashley Koppellow who miscued his shot come cross straight to Jowan in the area who flicked  behind him and there was Harvey Hann instinctively firing into the roof of the net. 1-0. Biscovey woke up a bit after this but with an ageing squad couldn't keep pace with the Sticker youngsters. Just before half time Jowan got his just rewards when he latched onto a through ball and this time shot past the advancing keeper into the corner of the goal. H/T. 2-0.

  The Second half started and with the rain drizzling down the game became a lottery with so many misplaced passes from both teams. Sticker became guilty of trying to play the intricate stuff near the goal rather than trying a shot and testing the keeper. Biscovey sensed they might get something from the game and started to beat the offside but Tome Rowe in the Sticker goal made two outstanding blocks to keep his team ahead. Finally Sticker killed the game off when Harvey Haan got his second with a powerful header from a corner to make the final score 3-0.
