Last year whilst on holiday, we visited The Lizard area and popped in to Mullion FC on the way back to Hayle and met some the home committee, we did say if they were at home this season whilst down, we would pop back to watch a match.

We pulled up on the car park and Shawn saw a rare falcon on the far side of the pitch, so he got his bird book to confirm this, I went in to the smart clubhouse and was offered a free cuppa for me and the wife by the kind Secretary Caroline.

The clubhouse is superb for families as it houses darts board, table tennis, table football, air hockey and even tower building blocks like jenga, shawn loved it.

Just before the game, there was a minutes mark of respect by both clubs and officials for Brian Ridgeon former Treasurer and committee member of this and the Trelawney League.

The game kicked off and Holmans didnt look like a side that had lost their opening five matches as they pushed forward, but after 13 minutes, it was Mullion that had taken the lead through ARCHIE RUTTERFORD. This seemed to spur the vistors in to action as the home keeper was forced in to a couple of saves and they forced a few quick corners, so it came as no surprise that in the 26th minute, they were on level terms when REECE MONTEITH lobbed the keeper from just inside the right wing.

The Second Half saw The Seasgulls of Mullion come out with more purpose, but chances were going begging whilst Holmans kept breaking on the counter attack and looked well worthy of snatching a possible point, but their hearts were broken after 73 minutes, when a visiting corner broke down and a long ball was played to the half way line to JACK PRICE who turner three defenders before firing low past the advancing keeper to give his side a 2-1 lead.

It then became one way traffic and the Holmans keeper was in fine form saving his side on 3 occasions with some very good saves, but he couldnt do anything in the 83rd minute, when BEN FLETCHER  hit a stunning stray ball from 25 yards to secure the three points for Mullion FC.

Mullion FC is a lovely club with friendly committee and well worthy of a visit if you are in the area, with lovely views around the ground.
