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.

Town team:

Jason Peters, James Greet, Jamie Webb, Ross Pope (Gary Bell), Joe Cooper©, Josh Burton, Mike Vanes, Mike Smith (Andy Van Evelingen), Rob Wearne (Dan Evans), Harry Evans, Ryan Chinn.  Unused sub: Kayne Trevaskis

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.

A goal with only two minutes left on the clock prevented Falmouth Town from earning their first clean sheet, and first back to back victories, of the season. It what was  Ross Pope’s 300th appearance for the club and the midfield stalwart was presented with a memento and a bottle of champagne before the game to mark the occasion.  Only ten other players have reached that particular milestone.

Camelford missed an early penalty before top scorer Harry Evans struck with an angled finish just before half-time to give the home side the lead.

Town looked comfortable for much of the second half but couldn’t increase their lead.  Falmouth then seemed to tire and The Camels dominated the last ten minutes, and as well as equalising, came very close to winning the match in injury-time.

Bickland Park witnessed a happy return to the F.A. Vase for Falmouth Town but the home side had to come from two goals down to progress to the First Round proper.

It was a disastrous start for Falmouth Town as Lee Pitman gave the visitors the lead in the opening minute. Town looked to be in deep trouble as in-form Ashton & Backwell scored again in the 14th minute.  Good work out on the left resulted in an unmarked Leon Britton scoring with a powerful header from 8 yards out.

Town though came back into the match when Harry Evans scored  with a neat angled finish after 19 minutes and the teams went into the break at 1-2.

Ten minutes into the second period Josh Burton hit a fine equaliser from just outside the box.  Town now had their tails up and the pressure told when, on 68 minutes,  the visitors put through their own goal .

Ashton & Backwell were reduced to ten men when Paris Allen was sent off for a second bookable offence but they came back into the tie in the last five minutes and their keeper, coming forward for a corner right at the death, brought a fine save from Sam Trudgian to ensure Town’s place in Monday’s draw.

Town team:

Sam Trudgian, James Greet, Jamie Webb, Andrew Simcock, Joe Cooper (C), Ross Pope, Ed Timmons, Mike Smith, Kane Trevaskis, Harry Evans, Josh Burton  Subs: Ryan Chinn, Gary Bell, Rob Wearne, Adam Williams
