Biggest cup win in half a century

Biggest cup win in half a century
St Austell run riot at Poltair Park against Mullion

ST AUSTELL scored 11 times to record their biggest Senior Cup win in 55 years as they showed no mercy when facing Combination League side Mullion.

The gulf in class was huge and the Lillywhites were red hot as they scored double figures for the first time this season.

In what was the first meeting of the sides since 1995 St Austell opened the scoring after four minutes when Liam Eddy scored with a smart finish.

Rob Wearne quickly doubled their lead, two minutes later, before Eddy scored again in the 21st and 30th minutes to complete a first-half hat-trick.

They went in 5-0 up at the break when Wearne, who has been linked with a move away from the club, heading in his second of the game.

With the game as good as over St Austell made a double substitution at half-time bringing on Kelvin Fyneboy and new signing Ross Lye, for his debut.

Fyneboy then created the sixth goal early in the second half when he set up Chris Reski for his first goal of the afternoon.

Eddy then set up Fyneboy for his first goal for the club just before the hour.

St Austell’s eighth goal came on 62 when they were awarded a penalty which Reski side-footed in.

Martin Watts then got in on the act firing in a trademark free-kick which gave Mullion goalkeeper Martin Duck no chance.

They didn’t stop there and Jack Calver, who is on trial at Cardiff City, rammed in number ten before the score was completed five minutes from time.

Stand-in captain Eddy twisted and turned in the box before firing home and sealing St Austell’s safe passage into the second round of the competition.

The victory is one of the club’s greatest ever wins in the competition, but they were someway of eclipsing an incredible 17-0 victory over Bude in 1954.

After last night’s game against Bodmin Town, St Austell are at home to Falmouth Town in the second round of the Walter C Parson Cup, kick-off will be at 2.30pm.

St Austell (3-5-2): Chapman; Lean, Watts, Giles; Davies, Dingle (Lye), Richardson, Reski (Tinsley), Calver; Wearne (Fyneboy) and Eddy.

Star man – Liam Eddy (St Austell)
