Home Win for Cornwall Youth

FA County Youth Knockout Cup - Round 1

Cornwall Youth 2 - Guernsey Youth 2 (4-2 After Extra Time)

In an eventful first half and despite hitting their opponents goal frame on three separate occasions the Cornwall youngsters found themselves trailing by a goal to nil by the half time break.

The second half followed a similar pattern with Cornwall doing everything but score. Both sides struck the cross bar as Cornwall strived for the elusive equaliser. Their patients was rewarded when in the space of five hectic minutes Cornwall turned a one goal deficit into a two - one advantage. However the Islanders were not going to surrender easily and restored parity in stoppage time to send the tie into extra time.

After an uneventful first period with both sides showing signs of fatigue it was Cornwall who finished the stronger when in the second period they secured a hard earned victory with a brace of goals in quick succession.

Both sides served up a very open spectacle played in a very sporting manor. Cornwalls' reward was a place in Round 2 and a home tie against the London based  'Amateur Football Alliance'. Date and venue to be arranged.
