“FXU Athletics rounded off the last Cross-Country race of 2017/18 in style with Captain Jordan Clay winning the men’s race in Redruth, placing him 3rd overall in the Westward League standings. Joe Argall and William Dax also put in outstanding performances, finishing the day in 3rd and 6th respectively. Matthew Bridges finished 21st, incidentally putting him 22nd overall. Track Captain Giuliano Formisano finished 27th, closley followed by Kallum Wright (33rd) and Social Sec Nathan Elemen (39th).

“As for the women’s race, Abbie Milnes stood finished 28th, putting her 35th overall. Kerrie Hutchinson came 50th, putting her 31st overall.”

Lizard Argyle 1 – 2 CSM FC

“A magnificent second half display saw CSM scrape an important victory at the most southerly football pitch in the country.

“Both sides played some good football in the first half, but the defences were solid – Rich Pugh and Michael Hinkin solid at the back for CSM throughout.

“An unreasonable amount of injuries scattered throughout the second half meant that neither team could really get into any sort of real rhythm. CSM had the better of the play, but then, with just 20 minutes to go, Lizard did manage to find a way through the defensive lines and the centre forward finished clinically one-on-one, leaving CSM goalie Ed Selvey with no chance. It looked likely that, in this tight encounter, this one goal could be the difference.

“Soon after the goal, Lewis Judge was hacked down on the edge of the penalty area and it looked as though his game might be over. But his reaction typified that of the whole team’s. Moments later, Judge latched onto a Roly Dickinson through ball, rounded the keeper and levelled the score.

“Then, with the wind in the CSM sails, Josh Squires cut out a poor defensive pass and raced towards goal, unselfishly slotting in CSM top scorer Ethan Nichols to score his sixth league goal of the season and send the away team home with the win that their effort and determination deserved.

“As with all 4 encounters between the two sides last season, this was another great game between CSM and Lizard Argyle, and a massive three points in CSM’s push to retain their league title.”
