Saltash 1 Sticker 0

Sticker playing with new signing Brad Hoskin at left back who had a very solid game and in a very defensive game Sticker were well worth a draw and it was 0-0 until the dying minutes when Saltash scored with what looked like an offside goal. The official running the line clearly waved his flag for offside but the referee in his wisdom overuled it!!  It is hard to imagine how he is in a better position to do this when the linesman is in line with play but there it is Sticker lose another game and are now bottom of the Premier league. The controversy didn't end there of course as Mickey Rowles-Jane was sent off and a number of other players booked. So all in all a bad day for Sticker AFC.

Sticker 0 Tavistock 4

Sticker welcomed Tavistock in to-days Premier game and the away side started very lively and had plenty of the ball but unlike last season when they were 3-0 up in five minutes. Sticker defended bravely and didn't allow the likes of Glyn Hobbs and the rest of his striking teammates a clear shot at goal when they did eventually score it was a scrappy affair scrambled in at the far post. 0-1. Sticker at last got some decent possession and gained a free kick wide on the right and found the head of Callum Kenny and as the supporters were about to cheer a goal the ball struck the post and bounced out. Tavistock gained control once again and drove forward and a well struck goal was saved by Jamie Blatchford but he was unable to hold it and a Tavi player followed up to score.H/T. 0-2.

  The second half started alas without young Jack Hooper who had injured his ankle earlier so reserve team player Jack Boardman came on but within five minutes Tav scored again to make it 0-3. Influential Bobby Hopkinson was trying his best to drive the loan Sticker strikers spraying passes forward especially to Tyler Cheshire so he could use his pace but the Tavi defence usually outnumbered them. The only other chance Sticker had was when Ben Rosevear jumped the highest to head  the ball goalwards but alas it went wide. Tavi finally wrapped up the scoring by adding a further goal to make it 0-4. It could have been more but for Jamie in goal who made several decent saves and for some decent defending.F/T.0-4.

Sticker 1 Torpoint 1

Sticker at last got a point after three games and thoroughly deserved it. The game started at a lively pace with Torpoint controlling it playing good football but without creating any chances or shots on goal. Sticker finally got into the game in the last twenty minutes of the first half with some gutsy football and putting the Torpoint defence under some pressure. But no goals in the first half. H/T. 0-0.

  The second half started with Sticker kicking down the slope and a raking pass from Bobby Hopkinson who had come on in place of the injured Rory Jarvis sent the diminutive Jack Hooper sprinting down the left side and as he flew past the last defender and into the box he was upended by a desperate tackle. The referee had no hesitation in awarding Sticker a penalty. Up stepped Frank McAvoy who slammed it into the net to give Sticker a deserved lead. 1-0. Torpoint came alive and put Sticker under tremendous but the defence was magnificent including keeper Jamie Blatchford. With Bobby Hopkinson with long searching passes to the two front players Sticker could have taken the lead with Tyler Cheshire beating his man and shooting just wide and then Tyler once again this time being provider when he sped past the defence and cut the ball back for Jack Hooper who brought a good save from the keeper. Torpoint finally scored an equaliser when an excellent move and great running gave their striker the chance to shoot and score in off the far post giving Jamie no chance.1-1. Sticker still defending briliantly managed to see the game out for a well deserved point. F/T. 1-1. Andy and Gary will no doubt be pleased to at least get a point but probably feel that this was a game that should have been won. They will obviously be disappointed in losing Adam Solomon so early in the season to Wadebridge who had started so well.

Helston 2 Sticker 1

Sticker much improved from their first game at Camelford went a goal down in the first five minutes but fought back to equalise with a fine individual goal scored by Tyler Cheshire and a very even game Stickers next best chance came when Joel Cockings came on in place of Calum Kenny but he was unable to convert! Then came the decider scored by Helston in extra time. F/T. 2-1 The Sticker players would be gutted at losing so late in the game but they have another chance to get some points on the board next Tuesday against Torpoint at Burngullow. The one bright spark of the evening for Sticker was the performance of young Jack Hooper making his first start for the club an exciting prospect!
