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.
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 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 September.
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.
Falmouth Town’s reward for the victory over Ashton & Backwell United in the F.A. Vase is a trip to Western League Premier Division team Odd Down AFC. The First Round Proper tie is scheduled for Saturday November the first.
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.

Falmouth Town’s Trelawney league side eliminated higher division opposition in the Percy Stephens Cup by defeating Camborne 5-2 at Dracaena on Saturday.
Town trailed 2-1 at the break with their goal coming from a free-kick from Jimmy Smith.Top scorer Smith completed a dead ball hat trick in the second half with another free kick and a penalty. Town’s other two goals came from Harry McMellon.
Camborne’s main weapon was the long ball but Falmouth’s more controlled football won the day. The visitors lost their discipline late in the game and had two players sent off.
The result has earned a 2nd Round away tie at Division 1 side Stithians; also, in the Cornwall Junior Cup Falmouth Town are away at Trelawney League Premier Division side Mousehole Reserves.
