Report by Dave Deacon

An impressive attendance on a horrible afternoon of 289 witnessed Perranporth get off to the ideal start with a goal after only three minutes when a right wing cross was headed on by Ross Sommerville and into the St Day goal.

Stunned but not out of it by any means, ten minutes later St Day were back on level terms through a Jacob Cleverly shot which somehow beat Perran’s ‘keeper Johnny Row.

Most of the crowd were surprised when St Day were awarded a penalty after 26 minutes, but referee Kevin Knowles quickly decided that there had been an infringement inside the Perran box and Dan Richards coolly slotted home the spot kick to put the Saints ahead. The clash leading to the penalty also left Row struggling with what looked an injury to his back and so it was no surprise when he never came out for the second half.

Before the break though St Day increased their lead with Gavin Boon finding the corner of the Perran goal direct from a 25 yard free-kick.

Row’s replacement was outfield player Jack Bradshaw who made some crucial saves to thwart the St Day side early on in the second half and St Day’s inability to put the tie to bed looked as if it might prove costly when Matt Roberts pulled one back for Perranporth in the 56th minute!

There was still sufficient time left for the league leaders to complete a come-back and haul themselves  back into this contest.

However, eventually St Day settled the destination of the trophy when with five minutes remaining Richards was fed through the Perran back line to slot the ball in, scoring his second and ensuring St Day got their hands back on the silverware which they last won four seasons ago.

Man of the match was Conor Miles (St Day).

I must also praise Porthleven for how good the ground looked pre kick-off and how well it played,  considering it rained for the whole of the match. Congratulations too for the players and officials  – not the best of conditions!
