Town clubs through in cup

GODOLPHIN Atlantic and Newquay AFC have been handed tough draws after reaching the last eight of Cornwall’s Senior Cup.

Last season’s beaten finalists Godolphin enjoyed a routine 4-1 triumph over fellow South West Peninsula Premier League side Torpoint Athletic while Newquay enjoyed a win by the same scoreline over lower league Porthleven.

Both teams will enjoy home advantage in the quarter finals with Saltash United set to visit Godolphin Way and the winner of Mousehole and Bodmin Town to play Sacha Wheatman’s Peppermints.

Godolphin beat Saltash, currently sitting 10th in the Peninsula Premier League, 2-1 back in September although Newquay haven’t enjoyed quite as favourable results against their prospective opponents.

Premier League leaders Bodmin have put 11 goals past Newquay in two meetings this season, while Mousehole, at the helm of Division One West, knocked the Peppermints out of the Walter C Parson Funeral Directors League Cup in October.

Wheatman told the NewquayVoice: “I’m really pleased with the win, at a time when we suddenly lost our captain (Sam Cooper) in the lead up to the game.

“It was good to get a game under our belt after a long lay off. I was especially pleased with our second half performance in difficult conditions against a spirited young team.

“In terms of the draw, both Mousehole and Bodmin will provide a stern test. Mousehole are going exceptionally well and knocked us out of the League Cup earlier this season and Bodmin, they are obviously in outstanding form and are arguably favourites for everything they seem to compete in.

“We will look forward to the tie and give it a real go.”

Godolphin boss Andy Savage said: “Everyone at the club really wants the Senior Cup after coming so close last season, we want to go one better this season and the lads showed that desire in their performance.

“This had the potential to be a tricky cup tie, as the last two league games with Torpoint finished 2-2 but we made no mistake.

“On the draw, I wasn't that fussed who we got as long as we were at home. At this stage of the competition all the games are tough, so home advantage is all you can ask for.”

Both ties are set to be played on Saturday, February 13.
