Cup history beckons as G-Men bid for semi berth

ONLY 90 minutes will stand between Godolphin Atlantic and a place, for the first time in the club's history, in the Cornwall Senior Cup final – if they get the better of St Blazey at Blaise Park this evening (7.30pm).

Saturday's quarter-final tie was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, but the sides will hope to do battle at the second attempt with a place in the last four of Cornwall's most prestigious cup competition at stake.

With manager Derek Martin on holiday until the end of the month, assistant Tony McKellar will take charge of tonight's clash as Godolphin bid to claim their place in the semi-finals.

Following the furore surrounding the club's historic promotion to the Carlsberg South West Peninsula League top flight last season, victory tonight will bring Godolphin to the brink of another memorable chapter in their relatively short existence.

But they will need to give a much better account of themselves than they did on their last visit to Blaise Park in January when they produced one of their poorest performances of the season, going down 2-0.

Godolphin have beaten their premier division rivals this season, however, recording a 3-2 win against the Green & Blacks in August.

It has largely been a successful first season in premier division football for the G-Men, the highlight being the 1-0 victory over title favourites Plymouth Parkway last month.

Godolphin are scheduled to be at home to Bovey Tracey in the league on Saturday, while Newquay are on their travels to Cullompton Rangers, weather permitting.

The Peppermints' league game against Bovey last Saturday was postponed as were all premier division fixtures.
