FA Vase first qualifying round

Tom Annear, Tim Nixon and Charlie Edney all scored as Falmouth Town defeated St Austell 3-1 in the only all-Cornish tie of the FA Vase first qualifying round, with Liam Dingle pulling one back from the spot for the South West Peninsula League side.

Camelford pulled off the result of the day as the SWPL Premier West outfit came from behind to defeat Western League side Ilfracombe Town 3-2 at Trefrew Park. The Devon side took the lead from the spot before Kristian Stafford turned the tie on its head with two goals with Sam Haddy going on to score what proved to be the winner, with the visitors pulling one back late on.

St Blazey were the only other Cornish side to win after eventually overcoming SWPL Premier East outfit Elmore at Horsdon Park. The Devonians grabbed the lead twice but were pegged back on both occasions by a Luke Cloke strike, with Gino Garside’s late brace securing progression for the mid-Cornwall side.

It was an afternoon to forget for Godolphin Atlantic as the Newquay club shipped ten in defeat at home to Western League club Barnstaple Town. Craig Laird led the way with a hat-trick for the Devonians, with Tor Swann (2), Joseph Grigg, Stuart Bowker, Charlie Wright, Brodie Montague and Billy Tucker completing the demolition job at Godolphin Way.

Ollie Aplin (2), Mitch Thomas, Tom Burt and Brad Crocombe netted as Newquay crashed to a 5-0 defeat at Bovey Tracey, while Lewis Edwards (2) Jack Lashbrook, Harrison Russell and an own goal sealed a 5-1 victory for Elburton Villa at Dobwalls, who replied through Kieran Ryall.

Truro City slip to second in the table after taking four points over the Bank Holiday weekend, defeating Hendon 4-1 at Bolitho Park on Saturday before drawing 1-1 at Tiverton Town on Monday.

Jack Rice opened the scoring at Bolitho Park on Saturday with a fine finish in only the third minute before Shane White nodded in the second shortly after the hour. Tyler Harvey notched his seventh of the campaign after the turnaround before Kyle Egan completed the hosts’ scoring, with Joseph White bagging a consolation for the Londoners.

Harvey had to wait only 48 hours to bag his eighth of the season with his low strike giving City the lead at Tiverton on Monday, only for former Falmouth and Helston forward Mattie Buchan to score the equaliser for the Yellows late on.

Western League Premier

Mousehole bounced back from a three-game winless run in style with a five-goal thrashing of Street on Bank Holiday Monday. Moussa Diallo and Callam McOnie gave Jake Ash’s side a two-goal lead at the break before Jack Symonds added a third early in the second half. Street pulled one back but Hayden Turner and Jack Calver were on hand to add gloss to the scoreline late on.

Saltash United also enjoyed a fine Bank Holiday afternoon with the Ashes running out 4-0 winners at home to Bitton. A brace from Mike Smith and further strikes from Callum Merrin and Sam Hughes sealed victory for Saltash, who remain unbeaten after seven league games.

There were mixed emotions for Torpoint Athletic who earned their second point of the season but may have felt they should have got more against a Welton Rovers side that ended the game with eight men. Lewis Russell put the visitors in front before they were shown their first red card on 19 minutes, with Cameron Allen doubling the advantage before the break. John Heveran pulled one back on the hour before the away side received another two reds in the space of ten minutes, with Heveran eventually rescuing a point for the Point late on.

It was less good news for Millbrook and Falmouth Town, who suffered 1-0 defeats at home to Shepton Mallet and away at Ashton & Backwell United respectively. Aaron Seviour’s strike early in the second half sealed the points for Shepton Mallet, while Dejay Preddie’s 68th-minute goal proved Falmouth’s undoing at The Lancer Scott Stadium.

Helston Athletic
 had also triumphed 2-1 at Torpoint Athletic in the only Western League game with Cornish interest on Saturday.

Mason Tape scored a hat-trick as Bude Town took advantage of St Blazey’s FA Vase exploits to go to the top of the table after thrashing St Dennis 6-1 at Broadclose Park. Martin Sleeman put the Saints in front before Tornado Bello restored parity shortly before the break, with the hosts shifting through the gears in the second half as Tape notched three times, Bello added his second before Billy Hopcroft completed the rout late on.
