Falmouth Town (0) 0 St Austell (1) 2

Falmouth Town slipped to their first league defeat since the opening day of the season against champions St Austell.  Once again Town found themselves reduced to ten men after a bizarre decision saw Tom Whipp dismissed for a second yellow after an hour when he was adjudged to have come back on to the pitch without permission.   Goals at the end of each half were enough to secure the points for the visitors.   Town’s best chances came from a twice taken penalty in the first minute of the second period but former Town star Jason Chapman blocked Andrew Westgarth’s second attempt and the chance was gone.

Bodmin Town (2) 4 Falmouth Town (0) 0

A depleted Falmouth Town squad went out of the Senior Cup against high flying Bodmin Town at Priory Park.  Missing skipper  Joe Cooper, top scorer Glen Squires, Mike Vanes and Mike Smith, it was always going to be a difficult tie against the cup favourites. The task became almost impossible though when keeper Ryan Barnes was dismissed after half an hour when he tripped a Bodmin forward following a horrendous mix up in the Falmouth defence.    Town had been unlucky when a very debatable free-kick award after ten minutes had given the home side the opportunity to take the lead and now they found themselves down to ten men and two goals down when Carter netted the resultant spot kick.

Town though, with reserve keeper Ethan Fearn in goal, and despite losing two further players to injury, Connor Rhodes and Rob Wearne, performed admirably and two late goals from the home side was harsh on the visitors.

Falmouth Town (1) 4 Camelford (0) 0

Falmouth Town maintained their unbeaten league run, now standing at eight games, with a fine win over Camelford.  Town were without skipper Joe Cooper and top scorer Glen Squires but you wouldn’t have known it as Town produced a very good all round performance.   Mike Vanes gave Town the lead just before the break with a powerful shot from twelve yards after good work from Connor Rhodes.

A quick fire double from Rob Wearne in 6 second-half minutes settled the game as a contest.  Vanes turned provider for the first after an hour and six minutes later it was player manager Andrew Westgarth unselfishly setting up Wearne for a simple tap in.  Westgarth completed the scoring from the spot in the last minute of the match following a hand ball.

Cullompton Rangers (0) Falmouth Town (0) 0

Town stretched their unbeaten league run to nine games at Edenvale Park.  It’s another creditable result for Andrew Westgarth’s  depleted Town squad against a Cullompton team who have yet to lose in the SWPL this season.  Cullompton had the best of the opening 20 minutes and Ryan Barnes made two good saves but Town came back into and were a bit disappointed not to win in the end.

Falmouth Town (0) 2 Penryn Athletic (0) 1

Falmouth Town eased past near neighbours Penryn Athletic to set up a 2nd Round tie at either Porthleven or Helston in this Walter C. Parsons League Cup tie.  The first half was an uneventful affair with Town looking lack lustre and unable to create much in the way of chances and the  1st Division West visitors comfortably matched their Premier Division opponents.

The home side were straight out 0f the blocks for the second period though and it took them only three minutes to go into the lead.  Matt Hollands, playing his first game of the season, set up Rob Wearne with a well placed free kick and the striker made no mistake in heading home from eight yards .  Top scorer Glen Squires stretched the lead after 65 minutes with his 7th goal of the season when he fired home a powerful angled shot into the roof of the net following good work from player manager Andrew Westgarth.

Town went close to making it 3-0 on several occasions, notably through Luke Tripconey, but it was Penryn who grabbed a last gasp goal through Luke Brabyn to give the visitors a consolation and put some gloss on the final score.

Falmouth Town: R Barnes, C. Wormington (H Clarke 73 mins), M. Hollands, T. Whipp, J Cooper, R. Pope, R. Wearne, M. Smith (A. Killen 65 mins), G. Squires, A. Westgarth, H. Westlake (L. Tripconey, 45 mins). Subs not used: S. Reed, E. Fearne.
