Sticker 0 Falmouth 5
Sticker started the game with three players missing from their last two victories and it showed as the team looked not suprisingly out of shape. They made Falmouth look very good that is not to say Falmouth didn't deserve to win as they have the players including two ex Sticker players Martin Duff and Jack Bowyer and were very direct and scored three superb first half goals. H/t. 0-3
The second half started the same as the first half with Falmouth looking very threatening and and scored a fourth soon after. Whenever Sticker did get forward they were no match for the Falmouth defence and had to rely on long balls up to lone striker Sam Began and he got no change from the defenders. Falmouth added a further goal when from a corner the Falmouth centre half stabbed the ball home. F/T 0-5. A disappointing result for the team and managers after two excellent wins which brought them down with a bump. They now have two difficult away matches against St Austell and Bodmin before their next home game in the cup/

Penzance 1 Sticker 2
Sticker on the road again this evening get a well deserved victory at Penzance winning 1-2!!
Sticker with a second win on the bounce climb the table. The long trip to Penlee Park,
through relentless commuter traffic,was rewarded with a workmanlike performance against a Penzance side
who threatened the goal on numerous occasions. It was Tom Tallis who opened the scoring with a deft header from a corner mid-way through the first half. The home side looked lively after the restart and Callum George equalised from a tight angle with just 7 minutes played.
However, the winning goal was scored just 10 minutes later when Sam Begen used his pace and turned provider,
feeding Derrick Lucas who made no mistake slotting past Barrie Wyatt.
The remainder of the game was an open affair with Sticker having several chances and themselves defending resolutely to take home the 3 points.
Team: A.Lake, A.Solomon, A.Avery, M.Rowles-Jane, B.Hoskin, A.Taylor, M.Yelland, T.Tallis, J.Cockings, S.Begen, D.Lucas. Sub: L.Nicholls.
Sticker 2 Callington 1
Sticker at last get some points on the board at the tenth attempt with a battling display against fellow Premier division strugglers Callington town. The Weather turned for the worse just after Kick off and got steadily worse as the match prgressed. With the pitch looking like a billiard table with the rain now coming down the ball was skidding off the surface making control of the ball tricky but both teams addapted to the conditions. Sticker took the lead in the first twenty minutes when a superb over the top ball from the insprational Andy Avery into the path of speedy leading scorer Derek Lucas and this time he became provider and laid on a perfect pass to Sam Began who fired past the keeper 1-0. Sticker were playing well at this point but a loose pass in the middle of the pitch let in a Callington striker who thundered in a shot from twenty yards giving the Sticker keeper no chance 1-1.H/T.
The second half was only a few seconds old when Derek Lucas once again received the ball down the right and set up Sam Began for his and Stickers second goal. 2-1. Callington lost a bit of discipline in this half and at one time had two players in the sin bin and Sticker pressing forward should have increased their lead with shots from Derek Lucas and Sam Began but the keeper saved superbly both times.Also a welome return to Martin Yelland out for some time with an injury who added some welcome experience down the left side linking well with Brad Hoskin. Callington came roaring back but were unable to break through a resolute Sticker defence marshalled brilliantly by capatin Mickey Rowles-Jane with fine performances by Jack Walker who always gives his best and Bradley Hoskin and Aaron Taylor not forgetting Anton Lake in goal who made some important stops especially one in the first half when from a wicked shot which was dipping he tipped the ball over the bar! F/T. 2-1. At last a win and some points in the bag which will have pleased Steve and Andy as they have been working hard with the squad. The squad worked extremely hard today in very testing conditions and thoroughly deserved their win. Hopefully they can push on now after this confidence boosting win!
Squad: A.Lake, J.Walker, A.Avery,M.Rowles-Jane, A.Taylor, B.Hoskin, T.Tallin(A.Winkworth), J.Cockings, M.Yelland, S.Began(L.Nicholls), D.Lucas.
