Falmouth Town 0, Saltash United 0

SALTASH United were made to settle for a share of the points at Bickland Park on Saturday - thanks to the heroics of Falmouth Town goalkeeper Jason Chapman.

The Town skipper was outstanding as he repeatedly thwarted the Ashes on a number of occasions in a thoroughly entertaining encounter.

Saltash could easily have won by five or six goals but for Chapman.

The pick of his saves was late in the second half when he brilliantly tipped over Lewis Russell's 83rd minute effort.

The game also marked the long-awaited return to action of Matt Drummond following injury. However, joint manager Les Gilbert confirmed after the game that the club have received a seven day approach from Newquay for the striker.

Falmouth: J Chapman, L Jeffries, R Kellow, D Friend, J Webb, T Whipp, D Richardson, R Pope, G Squires, M Drummond (T Dunstan 88), K Turner. Subs (not used): L Murray, J Greet, I Boon.

Saltash: N Murphy, S Clark, S Jewell, G Coulton, T Clark (L Russell 21), M Godfree, D Zalick, A Cusack, S Hughes, D Kanakh, M Cusack (O Bennetts 79).
