St Blazey A.F.C are delighted to comfirm Matt Hayden and Shaun Vincent as joint managers for the 2019/20 season. Matt took the job under difficult circumstances and brought in Shaun to work along side him. With a side to completely rebuild its took time to get the right players but finally a more settled side has brought improved performances and results.
With a prospect of step 6 football and a place back in the F.A Vase nest season, there is plenty to look forward to for St Blazey supporters and our management team.
St Blazey put in their best performance of the season during the second half as they put four past Bude to add the two they scored before half time. St Blazey had taken an early lead before a defensive error made it 1v1. St Blazey managed to take a one goal lead going into the half time break before the flood gates opened. Despite the Bude goalkeeper making several excellent saves, once Willmott had scored with a wonderful strike the goals kept coming. St Blazey now have a settled squad and the hard work being put in is paying dividends.
A deflected 1st goal and a second goal mid way through the first half was enough to earn Holsworthy all 3 points. St Blazey had a McGhee free kick in the first half clip the cross bar. Despite having plenty of possession in the second half, St Blazey lacked the fire power to really hurt Holsworthy and couldn’t find away to get themselves back in the match.
Next up for St Blazey, the first of three away games, as St Blazey make the short trip to Dobwalls.
Josh Harris has left St Blazey and signed for Dobwalls. Josh who has played on the left wing for St Blazey scored the winner this season away at Mousehole when his cross beat the Mousehole goalkeeper and went straight in earning St Blazey a 0v1 win. Josh also scored the equaliser to make it 1v1 against Wendron at Blaise Park. In his time at St Blazey, his time has been blighted by injury but he has always come back to give his all for the green and black shirt.
St Blazey A.F.C would like to thank Josh for his efforts and wish him all the best for the future.
St Blazey secured just their second home win of the season and their first since the opening Friday night back in August as St Blazey came from behind to secure all 3 points.
Plymouth Marjons had taken an early lead when a ball across the box was side footed home. St Blazey hit back before half time with a good strike creeping inside the near post from Jordan Powell. Marjons should have re taken the lead when a ball across the box was controlled and the shot smashed against the base of the near post and the loose ball hooked clear. That miss was to prove costly as St Blazey almost took the lead when a header from a corner was cleared off the line. The resulting corner was swung in and captain Lewis Vooght headered the ball home.
St Blazey began the second half looking the more confident with out creating any clear cut chances. Out of the blue, Steve Rodgers smashed home an unstoppable effort to put St Blazey 3v1 up. Marjons were awarded a free kick with 15 minutes remaining. Despite the ball being well placed, the low drive down the middle beat everyone to give Marjons hope. Marjons dominated the final quarter hour as St Blazey struggled to keep the ball. Tackles went flying in, block shots and one outstanding save kept St Blazey in front. The final whistle went and a huge sigh of relief as St Blazey held on for all 3 points.
Next up for St Blazey, a return to Charity cup action as St Blazey travel to St Dennis looking to seal a semi final place.
St Blazey made it back to back away wins and back to back clean sheets with a 0v2 win away at Bude Town. Second half goals from McGhee and Russell secured all 3 points as St Blazey pull away from the bottom places.
Next up for St Blazey, a trip west to face Penzance at Penlee Park on January 19th. Kick off 2.15pm.
St Blazey were made to pay for not taking their early chances as St Dennis took three chances in the first half to leave St Blazey facing an up hill battle in the second half. Despite pulling a goal back early in the second half, St Blazey conceded again almost straight from the kick off. St Blazey hit back again almost immediately with a penalty after a foul on the left of the penalty area. St Blazey still had over half an hour to get a result but were reduced to 10 men when the referee adjudged a challenge to be two footed. Despite having a lot of the ball, St Blazey failed to create any really good chances as St Dennis held on to earn all three points.
Next up for St Blazey, a trip to bottom side Ludgvan on Saturday.
