Falmouth Town manager Andrew Westgarth was full of praise for his side after they strolled to a 4-0 victory at Sticker - their fifth win in six games so far this season.

Town controlled proceedings from start to finish at Burngullow Park, with David Broglino opening the scoring with a free-kick before Tim Nixon converted Luke Barner's cross. Luke Brabyn rounded the 'keeper to make it three before he turned provider for Broglino to complete the scoring.

It could even have been five had Barner not missed a penalty, but that proved the only blemish on an excellent afternoon for Town.

"I thought we were excellent from the first minute to the end," Westgarth said. "On their day, any team in this league have got a win in them or have periods of the game where they can cause you trouble but I thought yesterday (Saturday), first clean sheet, four goals and like many of our other games, every time we went forward we looked like we were going to score."

The free-scoring nature of Town's victory perfectly captured the side's promising start to the campaign. Town have now scored 27 goals from six games to become the league's most prolific side so far.

"The real pleasing thing is we're not reliant on one player." Westgarth said. "Whereas some sides might hang their hat on one player scoring all of their goals, I just feel like we're going to score from all over the park at the minute, which is a real asset for us."

But while Town can rightly receive plenty of praise for their attacking exploits, Saturday's win saw them collect their first clean sheet of the season – which was a welcome sight for Westgarth.

He said: "I think the clean sheet has been coming and I think the games that we have conceded the goals have been from sloppy errors from our point, but I don't think Barnesy [goalkeeper Ryan Barnes] had a touch yesterday really. The whole team defensively was really solid."

That defensive strength has been boosted by the permanent return of centre-back James Ward, who has rejoined the club after initially leaving for Plymouth Parkway earlier in the summer.

It is Ward's second return in as many seasons after he left Town for Truro City in the summer of 2019 before returning to Bickland Park in November.

"He's had more comebacks than Phil Mitchell!" said Westgarth. "[It's] brilliant to have him back. In one way, time-wise it's been really good because when he came back last time it was mid-season, whereas yesterday was his third game for us already, so you could say he's only missed three games, so it's been ideal for us."
