Camelford 0 Torpoint Athletic 4

Romain Larrieu conceded four goals on his Camelford debut at Trefrew Road as impressive Torpoint ran out deserved winners in the Carlsberg South West Peninsula League premier division match.

The 37-year-old former Plymouth Argyle goalkeeper, signed by Camels manager Reg Hambly for one match as cover for the unavailable Josh Colwill, could do little about Danny Brook’s opener in the 20th minute, a beautifully curled left foot shot into the top corner.

For the remainder of the first half Larrieu had little to do but Torpoint had been the better side by a distance and they emphasised their superiority with three second half goals.

Brook turned provider to Ben Applegate to make it 2-0 in the 55th minute with a low shot which went under Larrieu’s legs.

But there was little the French keeper could do about Sam Cooper’s guided glancing header into the far corner from Applegate’s cross from the left which put the visitors 3-0 ahead.

Camelford continued to try to play their passing game but nothing was going right for them and Torpoint completed their misery four minutes from time with Brook’s second goal, another shot which gave Larrieu no chance.

While Torpoint move up to sixth in the table, Camelford go back to the drawing board in an inconsistent season which has seen most of their poorer performances at home.

Manager Hambly said: “We were poor today and Romain had no chance with the goals.

“We were delighted that he helped us out but disappointed with our own performance.”
