Rampant Town Win Again

Falmouth Town (2) 4 Plymouth Argyle Reserves (0) 1

Andrew Westgarth’s Falmouth Town side produced another stunning display following the midweek victory at Godolphin.  This time it was Argyle Reserves who had their unbeaten record demolished as Town moved above the visitors and into third place in the SWPL Premier Division.

Town got off to a flying start and were 2-0 up within 10 minutes.  With two minutes played top scorer Rob Wearne  reacted first when the Argyle keeper parried a cross to head into the corner to score his eighth goal of the season and his 50th for the club. Eight minutes later Ed Timmons hit a spectacular shot 25 yards out on the right hand side that flew past the keeper into the far corner; a great goal.

Argyle were stunned but came back playing  some nice football but were unable to penetrate Town’s resolute defence. Their best effort of the half came from a free-kick just outside the box that looked goal bound but keeper Danny Burrows, standing in for the absent Ryan Barnes, produced an excellent diving save to push the ball around the post for a corner.

Town came out for the second period in determined mood and it took them only 11 minutes to stretch their lead.  An Argyle defender handled on the edge of the area and Dan Richardson stepped up to hit a superb free-kick over the wall and into the top right hand corner.

Town were now playing some great football and it was no surprise when they went 4-0 up.  Marcello Jones, Town’s signing from AC Milan, scored with his first touch after coming on as a substitute. Rob Wearne headed a free-kick back across goal for the youngster to score from two yards out; his third goal for the club in as many games.

Plymouth Argyle gained a late consolation goal after 88 minutes, probably deserved as they contributed a lot to a great match.  Danny Burrows made another fine save and Argyle’s Ben Steer was the first to react to the loose ball to score from close range.

All in all a great team performance from Town with every player contributing to another very good win.

Town Slay God

Godolphin Atlantic (0) Falmouth Town (0) 3

Falmouth Town produced their best performance of the season in dismantling Godolphin’s 100 per cent record in the SWPL Premier Division last night. It was Town’s third away win in eight days and made it four wins from four games on the road this season.

Three goals in 15 second half minutes set up a stunning win for Town, who leapfrogged the Newquay-based side to move up to fourth in the table.

Recent signing Marcello Jones, the 18-year-old former AC Milan youth player, scored his second goal in as many matches when he finished from close range following a knock-down header from James Ward.

Five minutes later Dan Richardson won a penalty and stepped up to convert the spot kick himself.  The third goal was a wonderful finish from substitute Jordan Annear that had the Falmouth bench in raptures.

With his first touch of the game, he lobbed the onrushing Godolphin keeper from 30 yards and the ball bounced high into the top corner of the net.

The home side showed their frustration with a series of petty fouls as tempers frayed but the Town goal was rarely threatened thanks to a resolute back four; in particular the outstanding Ed Timmons and James Ward.

Falmouth Town: R Barnes, E Timmons, J Ward, J Cooper (capt), B Williams, D Richardson, M Vanes, T Annear, H Clarke, M Jones, R Wearne.

Subs: J Annear, G Squires, T Whipp, A Westgarth.


Another Away Win for Town

Callington Town (0) 1 Falmouth Town (1) 2

Town followed up the 4-0 win at Camelford in midweek with another win on the road to make it three wins from three away from home in the SWPL this season.  Town took the lead after 28 minutes when midfield general Tom Whipp set up Dan Richardson and his cross was met with a header by Falmouth Town’s new signing from AC Milan,  Marcello Jones.

Both teams played attractive football along the deck and Ryan Barnes was forced into two great saves  which preserved a  half time lead; probably deserved because of  the quality of Town’s possession football.

In the second half Town  grazed the upright before eventually going two up after 77 minutes.  Player Manager Andrew Westgarth got in behind their back-line and played the ball back to the edge of the area for Rob Wearne to hit a first time unstoppable shot past the Cally keeper; a great goal.

Ten minutes to go in the blistering heat and Tom Whip was replaced and Town faced a late onslaught; conceding three free kicks in a central position just outside the area and landing two bookings in the process. The first free kick by Ian Rooke took a wicked deflection, with Barnes going one way and the ball the other, to make the score 1-2.
Falmouth’s defence survived the last 7 minutes though with skipper Joe Cooper commanding and Tom Annear working tirelessly.

Callington Town: S.Borthwick, H.Southcott, G.Williams (T.Dawe 64m),  M.Finneron, C.Lock, D.Jefferis(C), C.Farnham, B.Langton, I.Rooke, J.Williams, W.Sargent.

Unused sub:  T.Borthwick.
