The Gaffer’s Summary
“Always disappointing to lose a derby but I really can’t fault the effort of the lads. We put a helluva lot into the Mousehole game and I think that showed in our quality as much as our output on the night. Credit to Bodmin who fully deserved their win.”
Dan Jennings returned to haunt his former club Wadebridge with both goals as Bodmin took the spoils in a lively local derby at Bodieve Park.
The striker, a popular player during his time with the Bridgers, struck in the 36th and 57th minutes to take his season’s tally to 16 as Darren Gilbert’s side put together arguably their best all-round 90 minutes of the season.
Wadebridge had earned rave reviews from their previous two games, away at Liskeard (4-3) and Mousehole (2-2), and would have gone top of the table with a win.
But they were never able – or perhaps allowed – to produce the flowing football which earned those away points.

Special praise for the Wadebridge matchday programme (pictured below). In terms of information included, best seen so far this season.
We were delighted that young Fin Ellacott made his 1st team debut when he came on in the 2nd half.
Massive thank you to Damian Cudmore for his awesome matchday programme.

We’ve arrived at Bodieve Park for the big A389 derby match in the South West Peninsula Premier Division (West) between @TheBridger1894 and @FCBodminTown. Fierce rivals and one of the most competitive in the region as just 7 miles separate them. @CornwallSport pic.twitter.com/jtmJCFynGq— Scott Harris (@official_ScottH) October 27, 2020
KO: @TheBridger1894 0 @FCBodminTown 0 - Bridgers dangerman Kyle Flew the number 9 has 14 goals this season in 10 apps. Joint second top scorer in the division.

HT: @TheBridger1894 0 @FCBodminTown 1 - Dan Jennings the difference in the A389 derby. Bodmin hit the bar and had a penalty appeal turned down before they went into the lead. Kyle Flew couldn’t connect with a cross for the Bridgers, Matt Lloyd with a chance too. @CornwallSport pic.twitter.com/rjn34AKBNh— Scott Harris (@official_ScottH) October 27, 2020
Making the most of a break in Cornwall by taking in @TheBridger1894 0 @FCBodminTown 2. Good evening out. Plenty of commitment, driving rain, muddy pitch. Just as it should be @NonLeagueCrowd pic.twitter.com/FE0yUMJFmu— Ian Reed (@kentreedy) October 27, 2020
FT: @TheBridger1894 0 @FCBodminTown 2 - Two from Dan Jennings for the visitors as they win the A389 derby comfortably with two decent moments of quality. Stuart Bowker my man of the match. He did all the hard work for me tonight. @CornwallSport pic.twitter.com/ueK8ncGU0m— Scott Harris (@official_ScottH) October 27, 2020
