Falmouth Town made it ten league wins in a row when they comfortably defeated Callington Town 3-0 at Bickland Park on Saturday.

Callington should have scored in the sixth minute, a long free-kick was missed by everyone apart from Owen raven, but from close range, the midfielder could only volley over the bar.

Three minutes later Falmouth had a glaring opportunity squandered of their own. Luke Barner did well on the right to cut a ball back to Jack Bowyer but the forward blasted his shot over the bar.

Callington’s free kick’s caused Town problems again in the 22nd minute, a low ball was fizzed into the box causing a goalmouth scramble. But fortunately for the home side, they managed to clear the danger.

Barner was unfortunate not to put Falmouth in the lead in the 28th minute, a deep cross from Tim Nixon found Barner at the back post, but the wingers' effort was cleared off the line.

Falmouth eventually took the lead in the 37th minute. Tom Annear had a long shot that was well blocked but the ball fell kindly to Bowyer whose left-footed shot rolled into the far corner.

In their next attack two minutes later, Falmouth doubled their lead. Brabyn got away down the right-hand side and his low shot crept beneath the clutches of the keeper to make it 2-0 after 39 minutes.

The second half started the same as the first finished with Falmouth continuing to apply pressure but at times the final pass let them down.

There was a slight scare for the home side in the 61st minute when goalkeeper Ryan Barnes was adjudged to have handled the ball outside of the box, but the following free-kick was well saved by the keeper.

In the 68th minute, Town were so close to scoring a third, Brabyn fed Bowyer down the right and he fizzed a low cross into the area, but the ball was just in front of the sliding Nixon.

Andreas Calleja-Stayne, the match-winner against Bodmin a few games ago, was so unfortunate not to add another goal to his tally in the 73rd minute, but his header was well saved by the outstretched glove of the goalkeeper.

Town were the only side who looked like scoring and in the 77th minute, they got their third and final goal of the game from the penalty spot. Tim Nixon latched onto a loose ball and was brought down by the Callington right back.

From the penalty spot, Brabyn stepped up and fired into the top right-hand corner to make it 3-0.

3-0, three points, and ten wins in a row for Falmouth who extend their lead at the top of the table with rivals Camelford and Liskeard both playing in the FA Vase this weekend.

Speaking after the game manager Andrew Westgarth was pleased with another victory, he said: "The most pleasing was a clean sheet. I think we were sloppy today in the final third. I raised concerns about it sometimes you get into the final third and you make the wrong decisions and today it caught with us a little bit. We had a few missing. First world problems! We had our own key players missing and I think that showed a bit.

"You have to give credit to the lads because it has been a tough start, relentless, the games have been coming thick and fast which is what we want and every task we have been set we have passed. It is a record the boys are buzzing with and I am immensely proud of."

Town have some breathing space at the top of the league now with rivals playing in the FA Vase rather than the league this weekend: "We did well in the Vase a couple of seasons ago so we get a reprieve to round one which then helps us out with the league. All we can do is take care of ourselves and we should be fine." Said Westgarth.

Falmouth's next game is on Wednesday, September 29when they face Sticker at Bickland Park.
