KJM SPORT REPORT Millbrook AFC 4 Cadbury Heath 1

Millbrook AFC LogoJack Wood scored twice and Josh Toulson produced a wonder goal from 35 yards as Millbrook recorded their biggest Western Premier win of the season at Jenkins Park on Saturday.
The Brook got their goals at crucial times, with young striker Josh Johnson scoring the opener after five minutes and Toulson producing a spectacular lob to make it 2-0 on the stroke of half-time.
Wood increased the lead in the first minute after the break and completed the home scoring from a 68th minute penalty, four minutes after Ali Boyer had reduced the arrears for the visitors.
Millbrook boss Macca Brown was left to reflect on ‘a really positive day’.
He said: “We certainly identified it as a game that we should be winning, particularly at home, but it isn’t always as simple as that in this league as we well know, and you have to perform and we did that.
“The timings of the goals were crucial, scoring after just four minutes or so was the perfect start, but it possibly led to a bit of frustration in our performance following the goal as maybe the lads thought it was going to be more straightforward than it was in the first half.
“Cadbury Heath didn’t make it easy for us and I didn’t expect them to, it got a bit scrappy and you could certainly see a bit of frustration start creeping in on our part and that effected our play.
“But the goal before half-time was just what we needed to settle at the break, and it was a brilliant finish by JT, lifting it over the keeper from 40 yards or so after a poor clearance. He worked hard and that was a real touch of quality that we know he is capable of.
“To then get the third within minutes of the restart to the second half was exactly what we needed and set us up for a 45 minutes where we saw more control of the game.
“To concede was disappointing but we weren’t carved open once really, it was an error on our part, and we saw a good response to that, and Tylor (Love-Holmes) did well to win a penalty so Jack could kill the game off with his second from the spot.
“All in all, a good day at the office, it was our biggest win of the season and it possibly should have been a bit more, but we won’t complain too much about that.”
Thoughts move from league to cup action now for Millbrook. Should the weather behave itself, Brown’s side face Wendron United in the rearranged Cornwall Senior Cup semi-final at Sticker tomorrow (1930ko) with Helston Athletic awaiting the winner in the Easter Monday, April 10, final.
