Lanreath go six points clear. Bolsters see off youthful Tremough
Lanreath are odds on to win the Q Cornwall Leisure Veterans League Division 1 title after a 4-2 win at current champions St Dennis put them six points clear at the top of the table. Matt Julian led the way for the visitors, hitting a hat trick, with Paul Boxall notching the other goal. Only Callington Town can now catch Lanreath, but will need to win their remaining two games with a twelve goal swing to depose the leaders.
Newly crowned Division 2 champions, St Agnes Bolsters, finished their league campaign some time ago, so to give their players a few more competitive games, they have entered some of the Cornwall Combined Sunday League cup competitions and today they welcomed a youthful Tremough to Enys Park. The experienced hosts started well with Trevor Wisker netting after just two minutes. The lead though was short lived and the visitors were on terms ten minutes later. Scott Goodchild restored the lead once again for the home side just past the quarter hour mark, but were once again pegged back on twenty minutes. In a goal crazy first half Goodchild added his second and Ben Glanville struck to put Bolsters 4-2 up at the break. The second period wasn’t as freescoring as the first half. Ten minutes in the visitors reduced the arrears. Aggie though had the final say with twenty minutes to go when Chris Gardener scored to make the final score 5-3.
Another Veterans team playing in the Sunday League cups is Royal Par. Their latest exploit into experience versus youth saw them travel to Wendron. The visitors started very well racing into a three goal lead after 25 minutes. This though sparked their hosts into action and responded by hitting the back of the Royal Par net nine times to run out convincing 9-3 winners.
