Porthleven F.C are feeling the effects of a lot of games in a short period according to first team coach Jamie Webb.

Speaking after his side's 5-1 home defeat to Falmouth Town Reserves the coach admitted his youthful side, which saw eight players from their under 18 team in the squad, were struggling with tiredness at the end of the game. 

Giving his verdict on the match Webb said: "I think they were more aggressive on the ball, faster on the ball. They got to the breakdown quicker than us. I thought we had spells in both halves where I think we could have made better use of the ball but I think at the end of the day, I don't want to blame it, but we've had a lot of games and there were some tired legs out there at the end."

Porthleven trailed Falmouth Town Reserves at the break by just one goal but the visitors ran away with it in the second half scoring three more goals to cruise to victory at Gala Parc. When asked what changed in the second half for his side Webb said: "I think our heads dropped a bit, we definitely sat deeper. I don't think we covered each other so well, there were big gaps between our midfield and defence and they managed to find the pockets in there."

He added: "Dan (Parker) was very isolated up top, he didn't get much ball so I don't think it was just one thing, a few things didn't work. The whole back, middle and front didn't press together which left spaces and they were good enough to break through it, get opportunities and score a few goals."

"We had three players with niggles at the end and even one player who we subbed on we had to sub back off with an injury. There have been a lot of games, our under 18s played again on Monday. There were eight of them in the squad, five of them started today so there is a lot of games."

Although they only scored once on the night the home side's strike was certainly the goal of the game when it arrived midway through the first half. Captain Martyn Webster stepped up to rifle a free-kick from around 30 yards which missed past the wall and into the corner of Zach Telling's goal. 

Analysing the wondergoal Webb said: "Martyn Webster only scores screamers! When he hits them they stay hit!

"It was lucky it didn't hit the wall, he hit it really clean probably all of 30 yards out too. It was a cracking goal, he has a few this season. He started in goal, has a few clean sheets and now has seven or eight goals this season!"

The match was Porthleven's last home fixture of the season with their remaining three league matches all coming on the road for Port. They do have the final of the St Piran League Cup to look forward to though when they face Truro City Reserves at Wendron on Tuesday, May 10.
