The Lambs got off to a fine start of their title defence, with a fine win at Bickland Park.

With Josh Oak and Dan Evans unavailable Jack Ord took over in goal and Ryan Swain partnered Lewis Daw in centre of the defence.

The Lambs opened the scoring in the fourth minute, when a fine move saw Josh Grant cutting in from the left before providing the perfect cut back to find Dan Sullivan who fired the ball past Ryan Barnes low into the corner of the net.

Play remained fairly even for the next period but it was the Lambs that doubled their lead in the 39th minute when a fierce shot from,Josh Grant deflected kindly into the path of Luke Brown who made no mistake by calmly slotting the ball home.

Three minutes into the second half the Lambs made it three when Jack Crago provided an inch perfect through ball to put Josh Grant in on goal, he calmly rounded the advancing keeper Barnes, and slotted the ball into a empty net.

Things got worse for the home team in the 72nd minute, when a fine move saw Luke Brown split the Falmouth defence open with a fine pass, and Jack Crago was on it like a flash and placed the ball under Barnes.

Two minutes later the Lambs made it five when a Jack Crago  placed a perfect header into the path of Dan Sullivan who made no mistake with a great shot from 25 yards that found the bottom corner of the net.

The hardworking Falmouth team came close to reducing the arrears but Jack Ord made a great save to deny Annear.

In the 79th minute Dave Hallett made a terrific junking run past three defenders before unselfishly squaring the ball to Jack Crago, who had the easiest of tasks to slot the ball home from four yards.

Jack Ord was then needed to make two smart saves from from Annear and Brabant in order to keep a clean sheet. The Lambs completed the scoring in the 88 th minute when  substitute Ricki Shepherd fired home from ten yards.

Although this was not a top class performance by the Lambs they had more than enough fire power to gain a convincing win over a very hard working well organised Falmouth team.

There were a number of fine performances but man of the match was Jack Crago, his pace causing the home team problems throughout the ninety minutes. There is no doubt that the Lambs will have to improve on this performance when they entertain Shaftesbury in the Qualifying Round of the F. A. Cup.this Saturday.
