Sticker Reserves 0 North Petherwin 1
Sticker Reserves trying to better their result from last week came up against more robust opposition this week who were very strong defensively and were quite prepared to lump the ball at every opportunity whenever the Sticker forwards got sight of the goal but were quite inventive going forward especially from midfield. Sticker did create a couple of chances but both efforts were wide of the mark. The closest they got was when a cross came in from the right from Aiden Lees catching the away keeper out until at the last second he tipped it over for a corner. As so often happens Sticker doing most of the pressing but were caught out when North Petherwin scored a well taken break away goal. 0-1.H/t.
The second half started with North Petherwin having some good early possession but soon faded. From then on it was all Sticker and with a strong bench Manager Roy Boardman was able to utilise all his five subs. The play was mainly all in the away sides half but as much as they tried they could not break down the North Petherwin defence. They created half chance after half chance but no clear cut chance and came close to finding the equaliser but it was not to be. F/T. 0-1. Roy and Martin will be disappointed in another defeat but his young team will learn from this,
