The Under 14’s played some excellent football but found Cornwall a little too strong. Cornwall finally ran out 6.2 winners


Under 16’s L: 1.0
The Under 16’s had a much closer game. After early Cornwall pressure, which resulted in Cornwall scoring, Truro dominated the 2nd half. Unfortunately for all the pressure created they could not find the equaliser.

Head of Football Glynn Hooper expressed his delight in this fixture.

“It is the first time this fixture has taken place and it was hugely successful. I would like to thank West Cornwall players, management and supporters for their sportsmanship. I hope this fixture will become an annual event.”
