Sticker 1 Lostwithiel 0 & Lostwithiel 0 Sticker 0

Sticker playing a double header because of fixture congestion due to this winters wet weather and so many postponements managed to beat Lostwithiel 1-0 in the opening game with a goal scored by Jack Hooper who latched onto a superb ball from Josh Yelland with the evergreen Billie Davies in the Lostwithiel goal unable to save the shot. 1-0. In the second half with Lostwithiel coming more into the game Sticker had two or three chances to increase their lead but were unable to do so.

  The second game was played out to a 0-0 drawl and with so many misplaced passes from both sides and poor finishing from Sticker on a cold windy Saturday afternoon it was not a pleasant watch. Roy and Martin will be glad to get the two games out of the way.

Sticker Reserves 0 Penwith Exiles 3

Sticker reserves bow out of the Junior Cup for the second season in a row. Sticker thought they had finally taken the lead late in the game when Bradley Smith curled in a beauty from wide on the right over the keepers head only for the referee to uphold the the decision by the dubious Penwith linesman who for the most of the game was giving offsides when his teammates were telling him to and raising his flag for offsides when he wasn't up with playand when there weren't players in offside positions but on this occasion he may have got it just right. Because when the ball was sailing over the keepers head and into the goal Jowan Dingle with his back to the keeper on the line was offside or obstructing the keeper!! After celebrating with all of the team and then realising that the goal had been disallowed Sticker just fell apart and lost three quick goals in succession to disappoiningly lose the game. F/T.0-3.

Sticker Reserves 1 St Stephen 4

Sticker Reserves hoping to consolidate their top of the league position today met their match with a very experienced and organised St Stephen side. The game started at a very brisk pace with both sides making quick breaks from long balls and Sticker were the first to capitalise with new signing Rory Jarvis racing past the St Stephen defence to slot the ball past the keper. 1-0. Sticker now had a good spell of possession and should have scored two more goals after good work on the right flank but both chances spurned. St Stephen came roaring back and two Sticker defensive errors gave the away side a two goal lead. 1-2. To Make matters worse another slip up gave St Stephen another goal before half time to make it 1-3. H/T.

  Sticker came out for the second half determined to try and get something from the game but although they had most of the possession could not find a way through the massed experienced St Stephen defence in fact the away sides keeper hardly had a save to make such was the reluctance of the Sticker players to shoot when they had the chance. In probalbly their only real proper attack with four players going forward St Stephen added a fourth and final nail into the Sticker coffin. F/T. 1-4. St Stephen leapfrog over Sticker to take the top spot in the league!

Sticker Reserves 2 North Petherwin 0

Sticker facing Nprth Petherwin again this time in the 2nd round of the Cornwall Junior cup and were mindful in their previous encounter that they threw away a two goal advantage so were determined not to let that happen again. North Patherwin were very competitive though and made a game of it stretching the Sticker defence on a number of occasions.They probably felt they had the better of the first half but it was Sticker who managed to score the opening goal after a couple of eary strikes that just missed the post. Harvey Haan who had a fine controlling forceful game strode into the box but the ball got stuck in his feet with his back to goal he stumbled but then got up and hooked a shot that the keeper managed to put out a hand and the ball then hit the crossbar and bounced out  to Jack Boardman who struck the ball into the far corner giving the keeper no chance. H/T. 1-0.

  The second half started with Sticker kicking with the wind and took full advantage very early on when a good through ball found Matt Searle and as the centre half slipped Matt went round him and stroked a well placed shot wide of the keepers right hand. 2-0. Sticker were more in control this half especially Harvey Haan who had an outstanding game in midfield.North Petherwin were still in it though and still very competitive but were not able to pierce the Sticker defence which was well marshalled by skipper Adam Cleaves. The match was well refereed by young Scott McKenzie who was not afraid to stamp his authority on the game. Sticker did add a third goal when a free kick was well struck and the keeper was unable to hold onto the ball and it bounced out to Matt Searle who lashed it into the net but the North Petherwin linesman had his flag raised and the ref went over and spoke to him as he had given the goal but decided to uphold the linesman's decision and disallow the goal. Sticker were unable to relax but saw out the remaining minutes for a deserved victory against a stubborn North Petherwin side.F/T. 2-0. Roy and Martin will be pleased to get into the third round of the cup and pleased with the determination shown by the players. They weren't allowed to play their usual free flowing game as the wind was blowing a bit at times and because of the opposition who made life difficult. Also the players were guilty of too many misplaced passes and their control let them down at times but give them credit they stuck at it and got their just reward. One final note a debut substitution for Roy's younger son Harry who is now old enough for mens football.
