Veryan 2 Sticker Reserves 4
Sticker faced a strong wind in the first half at the Veryan Sports Club but did endeavour to keep the ball on the ground to get their passing game going. However a combination of wayward passes and some zealous tackling from the home side ensured that the visitors made little progress going forward. Veryan took advantage of the elements being in their favour and stunned the visitors with two goals in seven minutes which looked as if it might be the half time score. However Sticker ensured that it would be all square at the interval with a Jack Boardman brace in the thirty seventh and forty second minutes, the first a crisp shot and the second a follow up to his partially saved penalty.
Dan Hocking put Sticker ahead for the first time on fifty two minutes with a sweetly taken free kick and deservedly so as it capped an excellent all round performance. Boardman secured his hat – trick with a goal from an acute angle which James Martin sportingly resisted tapping home himself.
A decent win for a hard working Sticker side against a team who never make it easy to secure three points from. 2-4 winners for their first league victory over Veryan! A very satisfying performance for Manager Roy Boardman and his young team!
