Millbrook and Callington continue to set the pace in Div 1 - Top two suffer defeats in Div 2

The top two in the Q Cornwall Leisure Veterans League Division One kept up their 100% records at the weekend. Leaders Millbrook hit five without reply against visiting Foxhole and current incumbents of 2nd position, Callington Town also hit five goals in their home game versus Lanreath. This contest though was somewhat closer with the visitors replying with three goals of their own.

Millbrook’s top scorer Brian Stacey broke the deadlock at Jenkins Park when he tapped home after 14 minutes. The hosts doubled their advantage 10 minutes later when Dave Lorimer snapped up a rebound from a free kick. Just after the hour Brett Shannon headed home from a corner to make it three. With 20 minutes to go, two quickfire goals sealed the victory for the home side. Shannon forcing the ball home after an initial effort struck the crossbar and Stacey bagged his second with a trademark header.

Saltash United stay in the hunt in Division 1 with an excellent victory at Royal Par. In a well fought contest, the Ashes went into the break 2-1 ahead. Eventually the visitors ran out 6-3 winners. Their goals coming from Chris Truscott (2), Dave Wilkinson, Stuart Fort, Chris Allmett and an own goal with Alex Webster, Mariusz Jasaniak and Neal Harris replying for the hosts.

Bude Town gained their first League win of the campaign with a solid home victory over current champions, Perranporth. After a goal less first half, goals from James Plews and Ross Davage saw the hosts complete a 2-0 success.

In Division 2 the top two at the start of play suffered defeats to throw the division wide open. Leaders St Agnes Bolsters stay top, but went down by 6 goals to 3 at Newquay. It was all going so well early on for Bolsters as they raced into a 2-0 lead. The hosts turned things around to lead 3-2, only for the visitors to peg things back to 3-3 at the break. Newquay were able to add some fresh legs in the second period and ran in three further goals. Lee Paxton and Chris Brown both bagged a brace for the home side with Adam Weller and Sean Kilker weighing in with the other goals. On target for Bolsters were Scott Goodchild (2) and Dan O’Toole.

Redruth United slipped from second to fourth after they fell to a heavy defeat at Helston Athletic. Athletic, who were two goals to the good at the break, struck a further four goals in the second period to romp home 6-0. Aaron Collier notched twice, including one from the penalty spot. Richard Wilkinson, Shaun Howells, Phil Black and Mark Thomas also netted for the hosts.

Clays Veterans are finding their debut season tough going and remain rooted to the bottom of the table after another heavy defeat. Clays were generous hosts to Grampound and the visitors raced into a four nil interval lead. Three further second half strikes saw the visiting side complete an easy 7-0 victory. Grampound scorers were Mike Cruse (2), Simon Spurr, Rob Sharpe, Ryan Maker, John Ward, and Alex Makepeace
