Falmouth Packet:

Losing to former club St Blazey will have hurt Helston boss Sid Taylor (pictured above during today's game), no doubt about that. Check back later to hear his thoughts in a post-match video interview.

Sounds like it was some game at Lux Park, and what about Mullion? Amazing result!


So here's a full roundup of today's Cornwall Senior Cup scores:

Dobwalls   4-1   Truro City
Godolphin Atlantic   5-0   Newquay

Amazing fight back from Steve Jewell's side, but they too go out. That's three of last year's semi-finalists out of the cup after Newquay were thrashed by Godolphin.'s up to you now. December 14.

Massive result for Porthleven, beating Penryn at Gala Parc.


Jolly's Cornwall Combination League results from this afternoon were as follows:

Falmouth Town 0 - 2 Illogan RBL
Goonhavern 2 - 3 Hayle
Newquay 3 - 1 St Just
Porthleven 2 - 1 Penryn Athletic
RNAS Culdrose 2 - 2 Perranwell
St Ives Town 1 - 0 St Agnes


A great win for Wendron after extra time, and perhaps the perfect way for Paul Murray's side to bounce back after last week's disappointment against St Day. 





Match report: St Blazey 3 Helston Athletic 2


That's it! Helston crash out of the Senior Cup!

St Blazey 3 Helston Athletic 2



Bello is replaced by Josh Sims


Hope for Helston?!


A ball into Fox on the edge of the Blazey box sees the diminutive midfielder spin his marker, touch it just past another defender and hammer a shot straight down the middle which Painter must barely have seen!


St Blazey 3 Helston Athletic 2 (Matt Fox 87)


What a goal Matt Fox!




We're into the 81st minute at Blaise Park, with St Blazey leading Helston 3-1




Miserable, miserable few days for the Peppermints.



Hope for Penryn at Marshfield Parc?



Dan Stidwell lofts a high ball to the back post for the onrushing Tom Barwell, but it's easy for Painter.

Off comes Charlie Young for Tom Russell, who's not 100 per cent fit, so we're told.

clock ticking down for Helston. Blazey look comfortable. "No need to press," shouts Bobby Oaten from the touch line, and he's right. They're in the driving seat.



Looks like Penryn's Senior Cup journey ends in Callington. Luke Avis-Riordan's done the damage for the home side.


St Blazey 3 Helston Athletic 1



Bello almost makes it four! Thomas comes out to claim on the edge of his box, but he makes a hash of it and the ball bounces to Bello, whose shot goes just wide of the post. Open goal! The second Blazey have missed this afternoon.


Matt Fox lets rip with an effort from outside the box, but it's high and wide.

Helston need something to happen, and soon, if they're going to get back into it.



Dan Bennett goes into the book for a clumsy challenge on Goldsworthy. It's all getting a bit niggly out there.

Helston furious as another decision goes against them.



Bello's allowed to jink his way into the box on the left, before playing a short pass in for Zallick to dink it into the corner. Surely all over now? Helston are staring down the barrel.


St Blazey 3 Helston Athletic 1 (Zallick 67)



Could the spellcheck have made the previous entry any less appropriate?


Zallick twists and turns on the edge of the box, but his shot skids wide of the upright. 

Still St Blazey 2 Helston 1



Hugh Howlett gives away a foul for a heavy challenge on Swain, who goes down like the proverbial sack of spuds.

 The delivery's poor and it's easy for Thomas in the Helston goal


St Blazey turning the screw here. Helston are pinned back inside their own half as green shirts pour forward.

But then a ball down the line from Jamie Thomson releases Matt Fox and his low cross into the box is met my Goldsworthy, who sees it deflected out under pressure.





Charlie Young thunders into Bello on the edge of the box and givesaway  a free kick, which Zallick blasts into the wall.

Sid Taylor has turned a delicate shade of beetroot on the touchine, as Young goes down injured and play is brought back.



A great through ball cuts the Helston defence in two, and Tornado Bello curls it just inside the near post from a tight angle with Mark Thomas diving at his feet.

Great finish from Bello, but a nightmare start to the half for Helston!


St Blazey 2 Helston Athletic 1 (Bello 47)


Seond half underway at Blaise Park. 

St Blazey 1 Helston Athletic 1




Here at Blaise Park 1-1 is probably just about right, although on balance St Blazey will feel Danny Zallick's miss after taking the ball around Mark Thomas means they should be taking a 2-1 lead into the break.

Helston have looked lively, and Goldsworthy finished with typical style form an absolute peach of a through ball from Chris Strike, but at the other end Bobby Oaten's side have had the better chances.

George Swain's been the pick of the bunch for the green and blacks, taking his goal well. It's al perfectly poised for the second half.


Some half time scores for you: Callington 3 Penryn Athletic 0, Sticker 1 Mousehole 0, Dobwalls 1 Truro City 0, Godolphin 2 Newquay 0.


Close Helston! Painter spills a corner and the ball's hooked back in by Fox for Goldsworthy, but his header dribbles wide. 

Half time at Blaise Park, St Blazey 1 Helston Athletic 1.





Lovely goal, and it goes some way towards Danny Zallick redeeming himself for his earlier miss in front of an open goal.

The Blazey striker receives the ball on the edge of the box, then scoops it up and over the Helston defence for Swain, who takes advantage of some ball-watching to volley past Thomas.

All square at Blaise Park!


St Blazey 1 Helston Athletic 1 (Swain 42)



Heston slice Blazey open at the back, and a low cross from Fox is thumped out for a corne. Blazey clear, and off they trot up the other end and Helston are on the back foot again.

Good game this. Helston still leading through Goldsworthy in the 20th minute.


Ridiculous decision by referee Grenfell. He's booking Tom Barwell for  a sliding challenge on Ashley Piggott, after which Piggott looked to have stamped on him.

"This is the worst booking I have ever had, ref," shouts Barwell. Not sure about that, but it's pretty poor.





Yellow card for Blazey captain Chris West for a late challege on Tom Barwell. Careless rather than malicious.



Here at Blaise Park a stunned St Blazey trail Helston by a goal to nil despite having the better of the opening exchanges, inluding Danny Zallick hitting the post when he had an open goal.



In-form Callington have taken an ominous two goal lead at home against Penryn. Can Steve Jewell's side replicate last season's amazing run to the semi finals? 

At the moment it's looking like an uphill battle.



And Strike's involved again! This time racing back to maing a saving tackle when Zallick was through on goal. The Helston left back's everywhere at the minute!


What a ball by Chrs Strike! What. A. Ball. 

A perfectly weighted pass over the top of the Blazey defence catches the green and blacks cold, and it's straight into the path of Mark Goldsworthy, who takes his time before sliding it past Dave Painter.

Goldsworthy runs straight to Strike to thank him. The phrase "on  plate" comes to mind. 


St Blazey 0 Helston Athletic 1 (Goldsworthy 20)



Dany Zallick races clear and takes the ball around Helston keeper Mark Thomas but his shot comes off the inside of the post and skids across the face of goal. Let off for Helston!


St Blazey go close again!


Close for Blazey! That was  bit tasty. Some neat passig on the edge of the box between Swain and Danny zallick tees up Lewis Coombsm but his shot goes miles over.

Nice football by St Blazey. 



Helston clear the danger and launch an attack of their own, but Charlie Young's through ball is cut out by Matt Thackery, and Blazey clear. End to end at the moment. Good stuff!


So Godolphin go a goal up in the day's big derby game, while here at Blaise Park, a foul on the edge of the box gives the home side a free kick in a good position.




Swain wins a corner for Blazey, who've started brightly. Helston forced to defend.

It'a swung into the box, and Chris Strike needs to be lert to head the ball off the line. Thomas caught in no-man's land


George Swain lashes a long range effort high and wide of the Helston upright. That wasn't far off, and Mark Thomas was nowhere near it.

An early reminder to keep things tight at the back for Helston. Swain's got some shot on him.


Helston have the first attack of the game, Dan Stidwell linking up well with Matt Fox down the left, but Blazey clear. Stidwell playing on the right for Helston.

Tom Barwell starts up front ith Goldsworthy. Barwell's only featuredthree  times for Helston this season.



A minute's applause in memory of Nelson Mandela, and we're all set for kickoff.


Falmouth Packet:


HELSTON: Mark Thomas, Dan Stidwell, Chris Strike, Jamie Thomson (c), Hugh Howlett, Aaron Collick, Jamie Lightfoot, Charlie Young, Tom Barwell, Mark Goldsworthy, Matt Fox SUBS: Steve Jenkin, Kegan McPhilbin, Tom Rusell.


ST BLAZEY: Dave Painter, Matt Thackeray, Dan Bennett, Chris West (c), Joe Stone, Adam Bance, Tornado Bello, George Swain, Danny Zallick, Lewis Coombes, Ashley Piggott. SUBS: JOsh Sims, James Greet, Ben Swain.


Team news in from both sides, and there are no real surprises.



Indifferent is the word Kai Delaney used to describe St Blazey's league form this season. They've huffed and puffed, but so far failed to find their rhythm. Bobby Oaten's side look set for another season of mid-table mediocrity.

Helston? Well, there's no denying they've struggled to find their best form, but after last season's heroics when they were narrowly beaten in a thrilling final by Darren Gilbert's all-conquering Bodmin Town, the Blues won't want to go out at such an early stage.

There's pride at stake here today.



It's more than a little nippy here at Blaise Park. Leaves scattered across the pitch, which looks heavy after some overnight rain. It's a grand old ground, though.

Helston boss Sid Taylor spent several seasons here as a player, and still has a lot of friends at the club.



New signing Dan Jennings and former St Blazey winger Ollie Gibson in the Peppermints's lineup to face Godolphin.



Falmouth Packet:

Mark Goldsworthy and Charlie Young out warming up, along with Kegan McPhilbin.

Tom Rusell may make an appearance today. Whether he's fully fit or not remains to be seen.


Some early worrying news for Helston fans, whose side have arrived with a bare bones eleven due to player injuries and last minute drop-outs.

The rule preventing players from appearing in the cup without having plyed a league game means Sid Taylor has been forced to call up second and third team players in order to get a team together.

As we've aready heard today, Foxhole werent quite so lucky. 



You can tweet us @packetsport all afternoon, as well as send in your comments. We'll do our best to answer as many as we can.


Newquay face a local derby against fierce rivals Godolphin, just days after parting company with manager Alan Carey.

Well, I say 'parting company.' What I mean is 'sacking.'

Derek Martin's side would love to dump the Peppermints out of the competition. Expect fireworks up at Godolphin Way this afternoon.



Here in Packet Towers we're preparing for a road trip up to Blaise Park to see Helston Athletic take on Bobby Oaten's St Blazey.

But it's a big day for two other local teams in the Cornwall Senior Cup. Last season's beaten semi-finalsts Penryn Athletic travel to Callington - who you'll remember, dished out a bit of a hiding to Helston last weekend - and Falmouth play Launceston.

Can it get any tougher for Town? Seems like they've done nothing but play the top five teams in the SWPL premier division over the last month.

Oh wait...


So away from football Falmouth Eagles make the trip to Tiverton looking to build on their excellent 50-5 victory over Exeter Saracens last weekend.

Penryn host Burnham-on-Sea, which promises to be a tricky one.

Burnham made a stonking start to the season in Western Counties West, and although they've had a bit of a wobble recently they're surely going to provide the Borough with a stern test this afternoon.








Updates live from Blaise Park starting at 1pm, Saturday December 7.
