Horrific Injury: Match Abandoned

Town striker Rob Wearne was rushed to hospital  following a sickening collision with Elburton Villa goalkeeper Simon May.   The incident occurred with fifteen minutes remaining and the referee abandoned the match as paramedics worked on the young striker; tragically it was Rob’s nineteenth birthday.

Town were leading the game 2-1 at the time after Karl Turner scored on 45 minutes and Luke Wort converted a 71st minute penalty.  Michael Landricombe had equalised for the Devon side in the 66th minute.

Last we heard Rob Wearne had been transferred from Treliske to Derriford Hospital in Plymouth.  I’m sure everyone wishes him all the best.



St. Blazey 5 Falmouth Town 1

What a difference a year can make.  Twelve months ago a rampant Town left Blaise Park with an 8-1 win; on Wednesday night it was a different story altogether.  With St. Blazey rejuvenated and Falmouth’s squad depleted through injury, the home side probably started as favourites …a tag that proved to be warranted.

The men in green and black scored after only seven minutes through Broomfield.  Town looked a threat going forward but the pacey St. Blazey side were clinical in the finish and Coombes added a second on the half-hour.  Just before the break Rob Wearne scored his second in two games, after good work down the right from Squires, and at half-time the score was 2-1 to the hosts.

St. Blazey started the second period as they had the first and within three minutes of the re-start Coombes made it 3-1. Town never gave up and despite having lost two more players;  Vercesi (5mins), and Squires (45mins), through injury,  came close on several occasions to reducing the deficit. St. Blazey though wrapped it up with late goals through Simms and Broomfield, and although the final score may have been harsh, the best team on the night took the points.
