A SUPERB 30-yard strike from Jordan Annear secured a second victory in four days for Falmouth Town, after they beat Bodmin Town 3-1 last night, writes Matt Friday at Bickland Park.

Falmouth led inside the first minute and were two goals up after 15 minutes before Bodmin clawed one back from the spot before half-time, but Annear’s effort sealed the points for the hosts.

The home side wasted no time and opened the scoring after just 45 seconds. Jordan Annear surged past the visiting defence and played in Harry Clarke who found the back of the net.

Bodmin's first big chance came in the 10th minute when a dangerous attack culminated in Olly Brokenshire’s fierce strike, which forced a fine fingertip save out of Harry McMellon.

But just as Bodmin had begun to get a grip on the game, Falmouth doubled their lead. Jordan Annear latched onto Marcello Jones’ through ball and calmly slotted past keeper Grant Fisher.

Both sides were staking a claim for the next goal, with Brokenshire volleying over the crossbar for the away side, before Tom Annear saw his shot cleared off the line at the other end.

The elusive third goal went Bodmin way ten minutes before half-time. Ben Watson scored from the spot after McMellon brought down Chris McPhee in the box.

Bodmin ramped up the pressure after the interval. Ex-Falmouth man Jake Ash had a goal ruled out for offside before Sam Gilbert saw his powerful header tipped onto the crossbar by McMellon.

However Annear relieved the pressure with a moment of individual brilliance in the 80th minute, when he controlled a long ball with his right foot before firing the ball over Fisher from 30 yards with his left.

Packet Pick: Jordan Annear – could have chosen any number of players, so his brilliant solo effort settles it.

Falmouth: H McMellon, A Frier, O Moody, T Annear, J Cooper (c), R Martt, L Brabyn, D Broglino, M Jones (J Webber 73), J Annear (W Trew 84), H Clarke (O Walker 63).

Falmouth’s next match is at Torpoint Athletic on Saturday.
