A video has been uploaded to Youtube that will be of great interest to Town fans. Mike Truscott talks about his memories of the day Falmouth Town played Oxford United in the F.A. Cup 1st Round.
Falmouth Town’s visit to Mount Wise was cut short when after 40 minutes a floodlight fault led to the referee abandoning the match. The game was tied 0-0 at the time. The fixture has been re-arranged for Saturday the 7th of February.
Falmouth Town’s Trelawney League team had a very successful fund raising evening on Saturday the 1st of November when they raised £900 from a Race Night at the social Club.
Odd Down A.F.C. 4 Falmouth Town 3
Falmouth Town’s hopes of an extended run in the F.A. vase came to an end in Bath despite a valiant attempt at a comeback. The game had started evenly but two goals in as many minutes half way through the first period put the home side in the ascendancy. Odd Down then added a third just before the break and it looked like Town might be well beaten by their higher league opponents.
Straight after the interval though Mike Vanes to reduce the arrears and although Odd Down restored their three goal cushion, Josh Burton then brought it back to 4-2 with 20 minutes remaining. Town now had their tails but could only manage a late goal from Ross Pope, it was the Western League side who progressed. A good effort from Town with special mention of the second half-performance of substitute Wayne Trevaskis who looked dangerous and was instrumental in making two of the goals.
Caretaker manager Wayne Hughes got off to a flying start in his new role as he orchestrated Town’s first away win of the season, as well as the first clean sheet.
Callington had most of the play in the first half but Town’s defence stood firm before dominating the play in the second period.
Skipper Joe Cooper opened the scoring early in the second half when he headed home a Ryan Chinn cross. On the hour top scorer Harry Evans scored with a cross shot to the far post and he completed a brace in the dying minutes when he lobbed to keeper from the edge of the box to clinch an excellent win for Town.

Falmouth Town have been drawn away to A.F.C. St. Austell in the 2nd Round of the Cornwall Senior Cup. Tie to be played on Saturday the 6th of December.
John Dent has resigned from the position of Falmouth Town first team manager. He was quoted as saying the decision was made for personal reasons.
The Green & Blacks can rarely have taken maximum points from Bickland Park as easily as they did tonight. It was always going to be tough but Town made it difficult for themselves as they gifted the visitors a goal in the opening minutes. A cross from the right found an unmarked Lewis Coombes and his downward header bounced over the diving Dan Peters.
Kayne Travaskis worked hard, as did the supporting Harry Evans and it looked like Town could get back in to it but St. Blazey went into a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes. Dan Peters did well to get to a curling free-kick but he knocked the ball into the path of Lewis Sam Chitty who smashed into the net via the post.
St. Blazey coasted the second half as Town struggled to maintain possession and they eventually scored a third goal with 10 minutes to go; a bullet header following a corner.
