Reserve team news
Good away day at Blustery Seaton.
A very windy and somewhat bumpy pitch, saw Tivvy get off to a decent start. Not the best conditions for football, but after an early change of shape Tivvy quickly raced into a 2 goal lead through a double from Jesse Howe. The third added not log after by Richard Groom with a swivel shot in the box after the ball landed at his feet at a corner, and was turned into the corner of the net. 3-0 up at half time, but with the wind now against us it was much harder to get out of our half. However two more good chances fell to Jesse to score his hat-trick, but unfortunately couldn't convert. John Wannel was rarely fully extended in goal, but when called upon made a few excellent one on one saves. Seaton did score after a free header from a free kick, and only by our own mistakes, or long balls pumped into the box seemed their best option for more. All in all a good team effort for another three points away from home, and it will be nice to get back to home turf next week.
Team: Wannell, Skinner(Wakeley), Goff, Groom, Furness, Tricker(Rapo), Jones, Bradford, Passmore, Howe(jagger-Caine), O'Connor.
Subs: Wakely, Weeks, Kewley, Rapo, Jagger-Caine.
Three more points gained.
The first 55 minutes of the game was like groundhog day from two weeks ago with the team creating chance after chance and also missing a penalty, but with the team playing some excellent attacking football the deadlock was broken after a fantastic cross field pass from Luke Passmore to Tom Tricker who finished off in style with low shot past the home keeper. The relief of scoring and taking the lead was felt by all of the players and staff. This seemed to relax the players and within three minutes an in swinging corner from Tricker was met by Danny Jones to double our lead. The third goal came 2 minutes later after an excellent move between Passmore and Keiran Rapo who found Keiran in space in the box to smash the ball home. The last goal was fired into the bottom corner of the net by the hard working Passmore. This was an excellent performance by the whole team from the back line winning every tackle, every header and showing a desire not to concede a goal and to keep a clean sheet. The midfield/forwards worked non stop trying to break down a well organised team and got their rewards they desired. Its been an good start to the season with only conceding 5 goals and scoring 38 in 9 games. Team: Wannell, Furness, Goff, Groom, Searle, Tricker, Jones, Skinner, Passmore, Bradford, Howe. Subs: Rapo(Howe), Kewley(Goff) & Crook(Searle).
Devon Premier Cup: Frustrating afternoon at the office...
A very frustrating afternoon yesterday away at Beer in the Devon Premier cup. On a sunny afternoon, the team experienced a problem with the post, crossbar and an inspired home goalkeeper. Having the majority of possession throughout, we created enough chances to win any game. A excellent solo goal by Luke Mortimer made the score all square after the home side had gone one nil up. After 90 mins and in extra time the score remained at 1-1. The match went into penalties but unfortunately we lost 4-2. A real shame with the result, I couldn't fault the effort and work rate by all of the lads yesterday. On another day we could have won by double figures but it wasn't meant to be.
Team: Wannell, Searle, Ashford, Goff, Frazer, Tricker, Jones, Skinner, Mortimer, O'Connar, Groom. Subs: Bradford(Frazer), Crook(Jones) Howe(Groom) Kewley not used.
Another good away win...
A very professional performance by the lads yesterday and a well deserved three points gained.
The first of our three goals scored in the first half was scored by the head of Richard Groom after an excellent cross by Luke Mortimer. The second was a strange goal, a long kick from the hands of our goalkeeper John Wannell carried the length of the pitch with only one player reacting to the ball travelling was Groom again, with a neat left foot shot into the corner of the net. Fantastic cross from Isaac Furness from the left hand side of the pitch was met with strong powerful header from Groom again. The second half started badly as we gave away an early penalty which was converted by the home side. Our fourth goal was scored by Dave O'Connor after he intercepted a bad back pass. Good work by recent signing James Skinner down the right hand side of the pitch, he delivered a inch perfect cross for Groom to score his forth and the teams fifth goal. A great result as we do not have a league game for couple of weeks. We are travelling to Beer for the Devon Premier cup next Saturday.
Team: Wannell, Searle, Asford, Goff, Furness, Mortimer, Jones, Tricker, O'Connor, Groom, Rapo. Subs: Skinner(Rapo), Frazer(Tricker), Townsead(Searle) not used: Cane & Crook.
