Block Football Fixture vs Falmouth School

Under 12’s A: W 7.3
Under 13’s: L 3.2
The Under 13’s continue to show unbelievable attitude, even in defeat. The boys are turning up to training with over 16 players every week and really do deserve to gain a win. Unfortunately after leading game they again failed to hold on, eventually losing 3.2.
Under 14’s: W 3.0
The Under 14’s have now won their last two matches. This was an excellent performance.
Under 16’s : W 3.0
With a depleted side this was an excellent win. A special mention must go to Jamie and Toby who stepped in to play at the eleventh hour.

2nd XI Football Team Vs Newquay Tretherras

2nd XI: W 5.0
Starting strongly, it was evident that the Truro midfield were technically much stronger than the home side and some great work by Tristan Hearle and John Caklais enabled the strikers to have a number of opportunities, with some great runs by Tobe. Michael May looked dangerous and within a few minutes Truro were 3-0 up. Further chances were taken and Newquay were lucky to reach half time 5-0 down.
In the second half the frustrated home team rallied somewhat and managed to gain some possession, but Charlie Dean and Pedro were outstanding at the back, and Newquay were unable to convert. Meanwhile at the other end Truro missed a few chances but overall managed the game beautifully without conceding. A great result.

1st XI Football Team vs Callington

1st XI W 2.1 (after extra-time)
The 1st XI showed their spirit again in this League Cup Q/F. After dominating the game for long periods Callington scored a breakaway goal. Truro changed their shape and rotated players to try and find an equaliser. That equaliser was scored with the last kick of the game. Toby Robinson heading home a Curtis Pay cross. In extra-time Truro again scored late in the second period with another Pay cross for Sam Cumins to earn Truro a Semi-Final spot.
