HEAT WARNING IN PLACE AS PARKWAY HEAD WAY OUT WEST
After three goals in the last two games for the Yellows, Parkway travel to Mousehole this weekend for the third game of pre-season.
The squad travel to arguably one of the most unique settings in English football on Saturday when they head over to Cornwall, and the beautiful Trungle Parc among the Cornish fields overlooking the sea, and they are going up against a side that battled for promotion last year.
Mousehole won 22 games and lost just seven last seasons on their way to a third-placed league finish – six points covered the top three, with Tavistock and Exmouth ending the season ahead.
Their home league form was exquisite over the course of 2021/22, winning 14 at the Parc, drawing three and ending up on the receiving end of just one defeat.
Parkway grabbed a draw away at Torpoint last Saturday as Rio Garside got off the mark for Lee Hobbs’ ever improving squad, and that came after a strong performance saw the boys pick up a 2-2 draw with Argyle at Bolitho a week earlier.
As Ryan Lane told us previously, making sure everyone is caught up with the fast pace of the league season and singing from the same hymn sheet is more important than results, but maintaining an unbeaten pre-season schedule will surely, be it inwardly, on the agenda heading into game three of the summer.
This will be the third meeting between the two sides, with both of the other two taking place at Trungle Parc, the first being a friendly in July of last year.
Mousehole came out 4-0 winners that day, but it was the second game in August that counted, Parkway winning 3-1 in Cornwall in the FA Cup preliminary round, with Tom Bath, River Allen and Matt Andrews grabbing the goals.
It is not the shortest journey. It takes almost two hours down the A38, switching onto the A30 at the Bodmin bypass, before eventually turning left at the B3317 junction.
Train may be the best and most relaxed option on Saturday with a host of trains heading to Penzance, from there, it’s just a short trip to the ground.
Don’t forget to hydrate and bring your sun-cream with weather warnings in place for a scorching weekend ahead.
Travel safely Yellows and enjoy the trip to Cornwall.
