Good weekend for the saints as they win six out of a possible ten.
The first team continued in their winning ways with a good 3-0 win away to St Ives. Gavin Boon slotted home his 7th of the season along with Chris Dobson and Captain Matt Witts to place the team upto second in the league after nine games. After two fixtures this evening the combination team find themselves in 3rd behind Falmouth and Perranporth with 32 games minimum (League & Cups) to play. The reserves, although what was considered a hard 7 days, playing top of the league Penryn Reserves twice and Wendron Reserves (2nd) in midweek they turned last weeks 2-0 lose into a 6-0 win in their game at Vogue Park. Goals from Louie Hall and a magnificent four from Matt Wysocki played Penryn off the park and pushed the reserves upto 7th in the premier division. More importantly the result gave anyone spending their evening with the reserve team manager a very pleasant experience. The thirds battled well but went down 1-0 to local club storm at Calijah Croft. The thirds find themselves in 10th in the league and are very close to turning there very early season around and pushing to the heights of last year.
The youth teams saw the second weekend of the league programme very full of fixtures. Our Miners hosted a friendly against Truro U16s and with unpleasant conditions at VP they still managed to run out 7-2 winners. Goals from Ollie Classy, Bailey Packenas, Sam Buckley, Joe Mcilory x 2, Alex Wharton and OG hopefully sets them up for another good season ahead officially starting this weekend. The Tinners hosted Saltash U13s in their first experience of the Cornwall FA County Cup. Finally the saints hosted Saltash at Vogue Park after two recent visits up the line. Playing superb football against an always strong Saltash side the Tinners were unable to find the net in the first half. However Louie Folwer-Beaton broke the deadlock and it wasn't long until a good passing display saw Dean Wills lob the keeper with one touch to make it 2-0. Ryan Harris then sealed the victory with his first touch coming off the bench and put the saints into the next round on 5th November. The Ramblers traveled for their first game and were up against a strong Newquay U12s. A brace from new signing Ben Rowe gave the Ramblers all 3 points with a solid 2-1 win over the home side. The Pirates bagged the biggest result of the weekend opening their season with a huge 9-0 win over St Agnes U11s. The goals came from Noah Clifford (2), Jayden Andrew (2), Evan Tresidder, Sam Bray, Archie Carter & 2 OGs. The Pirates are soon to play Plymouth & Exeter Academies and look promising to do well up against some of the best in the South West. The Steamers, with a very early Sunday morning KO drew 4-4 with Illogan U10s. All the goals came from Perryn Clarke of course with the help of his brilliant team mates. The Celts also drew playing at St Agnes U9s on Saturday. Well done to all the whole team especially Rhys Kevern for picking up "Player of the week" trophy. The Smugglers new to league football went down 1-0 at Ludgvan U8s. A brilliant display, narrowly missing out on a goal on a few occasion showed many times that the future is defiantly bright for the Saints.
Well done to every single player that put on a yellow and black shirt, played with pride, respect and for the name of St Day AFC.
