Sticker Reserves 1 Veryan 4
Sticker playing their penultimate league game at home were beaten by a strong Veryan team containing four ex Sticker first team players and it was them that gave the Sticker youngsters the biggest test. Due to defensive errors Veryan were two up inside the first fifteen minutes and never looked likely to pull one back even though they had a first team player Joel Cockings in the side, he had the best efforts in the first half but his two shots were way off target.H/T. 0-2.
The second half started and Sticker now began piling on the pressure mainly down the left hand side but the Veryan defence stayed strong and on quick breakaways piled on further miseries by scoring two further goal. Finally with less than a minute on the clock Sticker scored their consolation when at last a fine ball over the defence by Aiden Lees saw Ewan Warren sprint through the tired Veryan defence and as keeper Ryan Holland came out to try and reach the ball Ewan got a touch on the ball and sprinted past for an easy tap in. F/T. 1-4. A disappointing result especially after a fine run of excellent victories for Roy and his young team and will no doubt want to go out on a high against local rivals St Dennis Reserves in the final game on 24th April away.
