Grampound Veterans 2-4 Bude Town

(Cornwall Veterans League Supplementary Cup, Semi-Final)

A splendid move gave Grampound the lead before Bude had a chance to settle. Good interplay between Glyn Ford and John Ward gave Ford a shooting chance and he rifled his shot into the roof of the net from 15 yards. Months without a game, however, saw Grampound look rusty and the visitors began to dominate, eventually finding an equaliser although Grampound's defending left a lot to be desired in the build up.  The lively Matt Fletcher should have given Grampound the lead just before half time but his shot went just the wrong side of a post.

Grampound changed their shape after the break and were much more in the game. They created some presentable chances but were unable to finish and it was a grateful Bude who went ahead with 20 minutes left when Grampound's defence again showed some vulnerability. Grampound threw players forward in search of an equaliser but a couple more defensive errors gave Bude more chances and they made no mistake to put the result beyond doubt. Rob Sharpe scored with a good header to pull one back for Grampound but as much as they pressed they were unable to make further inroads in spite of going close on a number of occasions.
