Welcome to Bolitho Park for this evenings  County cup tie against our close neighbours Ivybridge.
Two league games to catch up with first. Tuesday saw us gain 3 deserved points against a plucky Launceston side who have picked up useful points all season and find themselves deservedly in the top half of the table.
This was a potential banana skin for us especially coming off the back of our Vase exit which understandably set us all back both players and management and also off the pitch with committee and supporters.
To the lads credit they showed no hangover from this and myself and Kevin were satisfied with the nights work and even though their late consolation caused a few flutters amongst us all we saw the game out. To be fair we should have been ahead by further at this stage but as we know if you do not kill teams off then you always run the risk of dropping points with late goals.
That result set us up for the Friday night encounter with Bodmin. Their recent victory at our place still hurt as we felt we underperformed on the night but was a different story this time. After a pretty even first 45 even though we had the better possession we dominated the proceedings in the second half and carved open many opportunities but as has been the case for a lot of our games this season failed to capitalise and we were left frustrated by the 0-0 score line. We knew it was imperative we did not lose the match and with other sides drawing around us it proved to be a good nights work. We are just sitting on the outside of the title race but still in touch and we know consistency and winning games against the teams around us will ultimately decide where we finish this season.
There is absolutely no doubt we have the ability and results can testify to that it’s just maintaining a level of professionalism and desire in every game which we must improve upon.
Onto this evenings match and a warm welcome to Nicky Marker and his side. Myself and Nicky go back a long way in footballing circles and is a good friend but that will count for nothing this evening as he will have his side organised ,committed and after Parkway as a scalp. From a tough start to the season Ivybridge are rebuilding and results have picked up ,notably their draw against Bodmin recently so a tough game is expected.
The Devon Cup is a tough competition to win with the pro sides involved and sides from a higher grade than us but it’s a competition Parkway are taking very seriously and hope to progress further and be in the semi final draw at the end of the month.
On the squad front Paul Heveran,Josh Zimmerman ,Jamie Bass hope to be fit soon and we are looking to strengthen the squad further with a new signing shortly.
