Walter C Parson League Cup

John Heveran scored twice as Torpoint Athletic defeated St Blazey 3-1 to lift the Walter C Parson League Cup for the first time ever.

After a goalless first 45 minutes at Launceston’s Pennygillam ground, Torpoint skipper Heveran struck twice in the second half to secure a memorable league and cup double, with Dean Cardew’s side having been crowned South West Peninsula League Premier East champions nine days earlier.

Ryan Richards broke the deadlock five minutes into the second stanza before Point skipper Heveran doubled his side’s lead a matter of minutes later in front of a packed crowd of 523 at Pennygillam.

Olly Brokenshire halved the Green and Blacks’ deficit from the spot to set up an interesting final quarter, but Heveran promptly headed home his second of the day to make sure of the trophy and round off an unforgettable afternoon for the east Cornwall outfit.
