Truro see off Falmouth to retain Aubrey Wilkes Trophy (by Lee Hall)

Truro City 4, Falmouth Town 0

A much improved second half performance saw Truro City retain the Aubrey Wilkes Memorial Trophy at Treyew Road on Tuesday night.

Despite being several leagues below their local rivals, Falmouth gave an excellent account of themselves in the first half, though it was City who led at the break through Dan Evans' 26th minute header.

Both sides made several changes in the second half and it was to work more favourably for the hosts with experienced players Joe Broad and Ben Watson making a noticeable difference.

Former Town player Dan Green had doubled City's lead in the 57th minute when he swept home Jamie Lowry's cross.

And it was Watson who claimed Truro's third goal of the night, lofting the ball over Town's substitute goalkeeper Ethan Fearne in the 73rd minute.

As fitness began to tell, another former Falmouth player, Liam Eddy, completed the scoring in front of a crowd of 189 when he rounded Fearne before rolling the ball into an empty net.

Truro: O Chenoweth (B Wyatt 82), J Lowry, W Daw (S White 71), D Evans, A Pugh, J Copp (J Broad 71), D Green, O Brokenshire, L Eddy, J Sims (B Watson 58), N Slateford (C Davey 79). Sub (not used): C Cooke.

Falmouth: D Burrows (E Fearne 46), S Kellow, L Jeffery, J Cooper, J Webb, H Evans, R Richardson, G Bell, K Trevaskis (R Wearne 46), A Westgarth (S Retchford 78), D Batchelor (D Friend 78). Subs (not used): E Timmons, T Whipp.
