ST JUST were the 's big winners in the Jolly's Combination League on Tuesday night, as the Tinners cruised to a 9-1 win at Falmouth Town.

Ashley Ellis scored four of the goals with Darren Steadman netting a brace and one apiece from Neil Curnow, Graham Stirr and Jack Willis.

St Just, Penryn Athletic and champions Illogan all have maximum points from their opening two games, while St Day lead the table on goal difference after a 6-2 win at Perranwell.

Elsewhere on Tuesday night Gerens James took his tally to eight goals in only two games but it wasn't enough to prevent Ludgvan slipping to a 6-4 defeat at Wendron.

Strikes from Tom Morris, Joel McWilliams and an own goal earned St Ives a 3-3 draw at home to league newcomers Redruth United, while Hayle lost 3-0 at home to Illogan.
