Falmouth Town (1) 2 Godolphin Atlantic (0) 1
In a game played in atrocious conditions of high winds and heavy rain Falmouth Town pulled off an excellent battling win against third placed Godolphin. Rob Wearne gave Town an early lead after ten minutes when he converted a chance created by Dan Greet, who was making his first start for the club. Glen Squires came close to making it 2-0 midway through the first period but his header from another Greet cross was saved by the G keeper.
It took the visitors only six second half minutes to equalise though when Lowry scored from a disputed free-kick awarded for handball just outside the Town penalty box. Ryan Barnes got a hand to the ball but couldn’t prevent it going into the top corner.
Falmouth Town replied in the 75th minute with a free-kick of their own. Full back Ed Timmons stepped up to curl a twenty five yard shot into the bottom corner for his first goal of the season and Town held out for what was a very good win for Andrew Westgarth and his squad.

Falmouth Town (1) 1 Callington Town (0) 1
An 82nd minute strike from Ben Langton gave visitors Callington Town a share of the spoils and it was a result the east Cornwall side probably deserved. Falmouth Town had been out of action for almost a month and they looked rusty from the off and never really showed their true form. The home side did take the lead though and it was an excellent goal. On 29 minutes Harry Clarke picked the ball up thirty yards from goal, and as Westgarth and Wearne drew defenders, young Cornwall player Clarke advanced before unleashing a shot from 25 yards into the top corner of the net for one of the best goals seen at Bickland Park this season.
Substitute Glen Squires almost snatched a winner at the end but the Cally keeper deflected his shot over the bar. A disappointing performance and result for Falmouth Town but understandable given the lack of action of late and the difficult conditions.
Manager Andrew Westgarth has not just got the players working hard as a team on the pitch, he’s also organised an off field squad that have been busy decorating the changing rooms, corridors and dugouts and making general repairs to the ground, buildings and equipment. The few pictures posted here that show some of the work in progress hardly do credit to the improvements made. If you get the chance pop in and have a look, the lads have done a tremendous job as the whole ambience of the area is much improved.
Andrew’s uncle Patrick ‘Paddy’ Westgarth, Darren Friend, Graham Medlin, Shane Clarke; first team skipper Joe Cooper and players Ed Timmons, Ethan Fearn and Connor Symons, who have all contributed to the work and donated materials. Sorry if I’ve missed anybody but thanks to all for all the work that’s been done and that that is ongoing.
