Falmouth Town's Walter C Parson League Cup quarter-final victory at St Austell last week not only secured their place in the semi-finals, but it also continued Town's excellent recent record in cup competitions.

The match was Town's 19th cup game since the start of the 2017/18 season and was the 17th time they have come out on top - giving a cup win percentage of 89.5%.

Last week's game at Poltair Park was their ninth League Cup game of that run, with six Cornwall Senior Cup ties, three FA Vase ties and one Charity Bowl match completing the set.

The League Cup record is the star of the show with Falmouth having won all nine games played in the competition since last year's first round against Helston Athletic, an unsurprising stat given that Town went on to win the tournament last season.

They are also unbeaten in their Charity Bowl matches, which is also not that surprising given that the fixture is only played once a year, with League Cup champions Falmouth beating South West Peninsula League Premier winners Plymouth Parkway 2-1 in July of last year.

One of the defeats came in the FA Vase, with Town getting through two rounds of this season's competition before losing at Western League Premier club Hamworthy United after extra-time.

The other loss was in last season's Senior Cup when Town came unstuck at Poltair Park in last season's quarter-final, with St Austell running out 3-0 winners.

Falmouth have scored 66 goals across the 19 matches to give an average of 3.47 goals per game.

That figure is helped by a couple of big wins against lower league sides in the Senior Cup; Town beat Looe 12-1 in this season's first round and won 8-0 against Hayle in last season's second round.

Town have conceded 21 goals in those 19 games, which provides an average of 1.11 goals per game. That gives them a cup goal difference of +45 and would give us a fairly rough average cup scoreline of 3-1 to Town.

The 66 goals have been scored by 16 different players, with Jordan Annear leading the way with 13 goals. David Broglino and Marcello Jones are tied second with ten goals apiece, with Luke Brabyn and Jack Bowyer following with eight and six strikes respectively.

Matt Buchan, Tim Nixon and James Ward have scored three each while David Blizzard and Harry Clarke both added two goals to the tally.

Tom Annear, Joe Cooper, Martyn Duff, Luke Johnson, James Miller and Lewis Pellow complete the list with one goal apiece.

Annear is also the leading scorer in the League Cup with seven goals across the nine games. Annear also shares the honour of leading scorer in this season's FA Vase run with Ward, with the pair scoring two goals each in the three games.

Jones prevented Annear from sealing the cup treble, however, with his five Senior Cup strikes trumping his former team-mate's four efforts.

Town have faced 16 different teams in the various cups since the start of last season, with Helston and St Austell the only teams to have played Town more than once. The Blues have twice been the opposition while Town have played the Lillywhites three times.
