Liskeard Athletic 5 Wendron United 1

Saturday 25th August 2018
South West Peninsula League Division 1 West
Attendance: 52 (wobbly head count)
Admission: Whopping 2 quid (check it out Tottenham)
Programme: Offered money but they told me it was free?
Tea Hut Stuff: Usual incredible value, 70p for a mug of tea, friendly service
Weather: Mainly sunny, odd cloud, light jumper weather
Parking: Access road to the Lux Park Leisure Centre

The night preceding the game I had a serious Beer/Balti induced nightmare that the best side in the SWPL West had changed their name to Atletico Liskeard and were offering up locals a wide range of fancy Tapas dishes in the Tea Hut. Torres had taken over management of the club and even had his own parking bay down at Morrisons? Diego Costa was the new MP (which was about the only bit that seemed a jolly good idea considering the recent political performances from the normal one).

Anyway, enough of that silly bobbins lets get back to reality.

Wendron United were the latest contestants to try their luck against the South East Cornwall Galactico's and they duly left the area with a 5-1 thumping.

Captain Podmore was outstanding throughout and knocked in a 30 yard scorcher to get the party started. He set a superb example.

James Lorenz was his usual lethal self, he continually terrorised the Wendron defence and got his second hat trick in consecutive games. No wonder Bodmin Town tried to pinch him, all credit to James for sticking with this fast developing Liskeard side.

Nice to see the dangerous Ben Waters get on the score sheet as well, Ben was a handful all afternoon for the Wendron defence and fully deserved to get his tally started.

Not a perfect ride in the park, Wendron deserve a lot of credit for forcing Liskeard back during the opening 20 minutes of the second half and they certainly applied some decent football, both sides put a lot of effort into the proceedings but it was evident Liskeard had a bit more in the tank come the final knockings.

Another good exhibition of entertaining attacking football from Liskeard.

Big game up for them next Wednesday night when they go to St Blazey.

Seats are still available with Antoine Griezmann Coach Tours, 6pm departure from the Fish Shop.
