Callington Town 2, Falmouth Town 6

FALMOUTH TOWN scored five goals in the last 25 minutes to record an emphatic 6-2 victory over Callington Town at the Ginsters Marsh on Saturday, writes Matt Friday.

Tom Annear scored Town’s first in between Callington’s strikes, before Luke Brabyn and James Ward both scored twice in the second-half with Jordan Annear adding a late sixth.

Town started the game in sluggish fashion and were behind after just four minutes when Mike Lucas headed Lewis Jago’s corner past Ryan Barnes.

The goal seemed to act as a wake-up call as Town sprang into life. Rob Wearne struck the crossbar before Tom Annear hit the post from 25 yards.

An equaliser was coming, and it duly came via an excellent 14th minute free-kick. Usual taker David Broglino stood over it, but it was Annear who stepped up to curl it into the top corner.

Not content with one goal, Annear then struck another 25-yard effort against the upright a few minutes later, before Jack Webber rolled Jordan Annear’s low cross agonisingly wide.

Town’s spurned chances came back to haunt them three minutes after half-time when Barnes misjudged the flight of Sam Hill’s free-kick, as it bounced over him and into the net.

Marcello Jones and Luke Brabyn came on for Town, and it was the latter who planted David Broglino’s corner past home keeper Sam Borthwick in the 67th minute to level the scores.

Town then took the lead on 71 minutes when James Ward was the latest beneficiary of an excellent Broglino corner, before he repeated the trick six minutes later to double the advantage.

There was still time for two more goals with Tom Annear teeing up Brabyn to bag his second of the game on 88 minutes, before Jordan Annear completed Callington’s misery in injury-time.

Packet Pick: Tom Annear – had an excellent game at left-back, scored a wonderful free-kick and was a key figure in both defence and attack.

Falmouth: R Barnes, A Frier, T Annear, J Ward, J Cooper (c), J Webber, O Walker (R Martt 77), D Broglino, R Wearne (L Brabyn 59), J Annear, H Clarke (M Jones 57).

Falmouth’s next game is their Walter C Parson Cup third-round match at home to Torridgeside on Saturday.
