Falmouth Town are enjoying their best-ever start to a league season. It is now 13 wins in a row in all competitions for Town following their 7-1 home trouncing of St Dennis in the Cornwall Senior Cup (CSC) on Saturday, October 2. 

Jack Bray-Evans made his Falmouth Town debut and marked the occasion fittingly with two goals and a man of the match performance. Luke Barner also netted twice for Town, as well as individual goals from Luke Brabyn, Tim Nixon and Dave Broglino. Town were unable to keep a clean sheet however as Jacob Rowe netted a consolation goal for the visitors. Speaking to the Packet, Falmouth Town Manager Andrew Westgarth was satisfied with the win. He said: “I think we played a lot better than we had in the previous two games. 

“Having Jack in there gave us a boost, I thought every time we went forward we were positive, we created a chance, had a shot on target or won a corner. There was a positive intent. As the game grew I thought we got stronger. Cup football is all about getting through, when I opened the door in the morning and saw the weather it was just pleasing to get the game on and get through.”

Westgarth added that he was pleased with the show of character from Bray-Evans to get his goals after missing a couple of opportunities: “I thought he (Bray-Evans) settled in great. I have been in his position myself all you want to do is get off the mark and settle down. I thought he showed a lot of character. 

“He had a half chance, then he missed a big chance, one he’d expect to finish. He then got put clean through and showed great composure to bury it, then he scored straight after. He was a constant threat, he linked up well with the boys, he’s definitely a great addition to the squad.” Said Westgarth.

Not forgetting the clubs unbeaten season in the Western League in the 1974-75 season P.40-W.31-D.9 (122-26). 

Westgarth was proud of his sides record-breaking start to the season: “It’s a complete honour when you look back on the history of the club.
“If you look at the size of Falmouth Town over the years, the managers and the players they have had. To be at the top of that list is something I am immensely proud of for myself and for the lads, it’s a great achievement.”

Following the acquisition of Bray-Evans Town now (as of writing) dominate the league golden boot rankings, with Brabyn leading the pack with 14, Bray-Evans on 12 and Nixon on nine. Brabyn’s strike against St Dennis saw him move to 23rd in the clubs all-time top scorers chart with 74 goals. He overtook Richard Francis who scored 73 goals between 1973 and 1978.
