Narrow Loss For The Slaters
Passionate game ends in defeat
This will be a short report and another one to forget.
Delabole travelled away to top of the table side as of the day and fellow promotion chasers St Merryn. The same as last week's game Delabole went with only 13 players and a number of regular starters missing.
St Merryn got on the front foot quickly scoring inside 5 minutes and although The Slaters battled throughout the game they couldn't pressure the home side enough to get on the score sheet. The game was littered with several bookings and a sending off for Delabole, so the passion for the game was there but if the side was a settled one and without any injuries a result would have been possible as Delabole have regularly enjoyed the rub of the green against St Merryn in recent seasons. 0-1 Full Time.
The next match will be against North Petherwin Reserves in an away evening game on Tuesday 19th April at 6.30 pm, they are currently languishing second to bottom in the division, although enjoying success in the reserve team cup. So this game is vital to win that will keep third place for The Slaters and a chance at promotion.
