Premier Division Round-Up

SATURDAY 20th OCTOBER

Walter C Parson Cup: Seven more Premier sides booked their places in the last 16 of the league cup with wins today and the only three sides to be knocked out fell to fellow Premier sides meaning no real cup shocks. The closest to a dramatic cup exit was at Cullompton Rangers who were taken to extra time and penalties by East Division St Martins, but Cullompton held onto progress with an 8-7 penalty shoot victory. Three sides went through against fellow Premier opponents with Ivybridge Town following up their midweek FA Vase win with a 4-0 victory at home to Camelford. Elburton Villa had a 4-2 home win over Torpoint Athletic at Haye Road and St Austell had an away success with a 6-2 win at Godolphin Atlantic. Saltash United top scored with an 8-1 win at West Division new boys Bere Alston United whilst Bodmin Town won 4-1 at East Division new boys Waldon Athletic. The 3rd round draw was conducted at Bovey Tracey where Launceston had won 4-2 against the Moorlanders.

FRIDAY 19th OCTOBER

Walter C Parson Cup: Five Premier sides were in league cup action on Friday night and they included both of last seasons finalists who had mixed fortunes. Holders Falmouth Town had to come from 0-2 down to win 3-2 at home to neighbours Helston Athletic whilst cup finalists Tavistock are out after a 1-3 defeat at home to Plymouth Argyle in a West Devon Derby. Bottom side Sticker are also out of the cup as they lost 0-4 at home to West Division outfit Mousehole.

WEDNESDAY 17th OCTOBER

SWP Premier: Just one game on Wednesday night in the Premier but it saw two of the contenders face each other with Saltash United gaining revenge for a defeat at Exmouth with a 2-0 win at home under the Kimberley Stadium lights. The Ashes climb two places to 3rd in the table ahead of a league break this weekend for the Walter C Parson Cup whilst Exmouth lose for just a 2nd time and first since August.

TUESDAY 16th OCTOBER

FA Vase: Ivybridge Town put aside the difficulties of travelling to Maidenhead for an FA Vase replay at Hellenic League outfit Holyport and ran out 3-0 victors in Berkshire. The Ivy’s reward is a much more local derby in November when they will host league rivals Saltash United in the next round.

SWP Premier: Three Tuesday night games saw Bodmin Town score a late. late winner at Callington Town to win 1-0 and keep in touch with the challengers whilst Torpoint Athletic were back to winning ways in style with a 6-0 victory at home to bottom of the table Sticker which lifts them three places in the table. Newquay and Falmouth Town had to share the spoils at Mount Wise as the two clubs drew 2-2.

SATURDAY 13th OCTOBER

FA Vase: If the last Round of the Vase saw an impressive set of results, then today was probably even better with 6 of the 10 Premier sides going through, plus another involved in a replay, and four of those six doing so with genuine cup shocks with wins over higher division sides. The four giant-killings were each so impressive it’s only fair to list them alphabetically ! Falmouth Town had a 6-0 romp away at Western League Premier side Bridport in Dorset with the biggest winning margin. Saltash United had a 2-1 home win over Westbury United who just happen to be 100% in the Western Leagues Premier Division with 7 wins from 7 outings, St Austell beat current Champions and now Western Premier side Plymouth Parkway by a 6-1 margin at Poltair Park and Tavistock had a 3-1 win, after extra time, away at Hellenic League Premier side Longlevens. Add to that Bodmin Town beating Stoneham from the Wessex League Division One and Exmouth Town going through against fellow SWP club Elburton Villa by a 2-0 margin at Southern Road and then add in Ivybridge Town who drew 0-0 at home to Hellenic Holyport and will have a second chance in a Tuesday night replay and its a day to savour again. In fact taking Elburton out of the equation we only had two sides exit the Vase with Torpoint Athletic putting up a great fight to lose just 0-1 against 2014 Vase winners Sholing at The Mill and Newquay losing 0-6 away at another Wessex side in Bournemouth Poppies. Certainly a lot of people will be looking forward to the 2nd Rd proper draw on Monday lunchtime!

SWP Premier: With the Vase taking centre stage we had just 4 Premier games today, leaders Plymouth Argyle reached the halfway mark in their league fixtures and puled further clear at the top of the table with a 9-0 win at home to bottom of the table Sticker. Millbrook climbed a place to 6th with a 2-1 win away at Camelford and Cullompton Rangers leap-frogged their hosts today with a 3-1 win away at Godolphin Atlantic. Down at Helston Athletic a rare 0-0 draw, just the 2nd in the league this season, was recorded with Callington Town picking up a useful away point.

WEDNESDAY 10th OCTOBER

TUESDAY 9th OCTOBER

Leaders Plymouth Argyle hosted 2nd placed St Austell with the visitors 2-0 up before the Pilgrims hit back to win 5-2 and pull themselves 6 points clear at the top of the table. Bodmin Town put successive league defeats behind them with a 6-3 win away at Newquay with the opening goal coming virtually from kick off with the Referee timing it at 3.2 seconds ! Millbrook left it late before picking up an East Cornwall Derby victory with a 2-0 scoreline away at Callington Town but nowhere near as late as Saltash United who salvaged a 2-2 draw away at bottom of the table Sticker with an injury time leveller.

SATURDAY 6th OCTOBER

SWP Premier: With a lot of Cup ties today there were just three Premier Division fixtures with all three seeing Home wins. The highest placed team in action were Exmouth Town who remain in 6th, but closed the gap on those above, with a 5-0 win over Ivybridge Town. It was also 5-0 at Cullompton Rangers who climbed a place after their win over visiting Elburton Villa whilst Newquay climbed two places with a 2-0 win at home to Camelford in a re-arranged game as both sides had received a bye in the Cornwall Senior Cup.

Four went through and three went out with two of the losers coming from all Premier clashes.

Cornwall Senior Cup: Two Cup ties were played on Friday night with both Premier sides involved avoiding potential slip ups against West Division opposition. Helston Athletic needed extra time before going through 3-2 against local rivals Penzance at Kellaway Park, whilst Sticker will gain some confidence from a 2-1 win at home to West Division neighbours St Blazey at Burngullow Park. A third Premier side went through to the next round on Friday with Launceston being given a walk-over of Saturdays tie against Mullion when the Combination League side forfeited the tie on Friday afternoon.

WEDNESDAY 3rd OCTOBER

Budleigh Salterton celebrated their first game under the new management of Matt Hughes by collecting a first point of the season with a 2-2 draw at home to the University of Exeter, whilst Liverton United remain bottom and were well beaten, 2-12, away at a Sidmouth Town side who climbed into the Top 6.

Ilfracombe Town have had two draws but are still unbeaten and today chalked up the highest score as they won 7-0 away at bottom of the table Liverton United. Axminster Town climbed a couple of places after they won 2-1 away at a Teignmouth side who, thanks to the arrival of the much publicised goalposts, were able to stage their first game of the season at Coombe Valley.

SATURDAY 1st SEPTEMBER

FA Vase: A pretty good day for the East Division in the FA Vase, with a good entry of 6 clubs this season, 4 were involved today with 2 going through and the other 2 far from disgraced. Sidmouth Town making their Vase debut, had a great 3-2 win away at Western League Division One side Keynsham Town for a real giant-killing.

TUESDAY 28th AUGUST

SWP East: Bovey Tracey came from a goal down to win 4-1 away at Newton Abbot Spurs this evening and stretched their start to 5 wins from 5 outings as they climbed to the top of the East Division table. Bovey, like Elmore who play on Wednesday night, are the only sides still with perfect starts to the new campaign. St Martins who lost for the first time last Saturday bounced back in style with a 6-0 win at home to the University of Exeter tonight and Brixham against Teignmouth “finished” 2-2 at Wall Park, but their is some ratification needed on the result as the referee arrived late and its not certain at this stage if the full duration of the match was completed.

SATURDAY 25th AUGUST

SWP East: League leaders Stoke Gabriel retained a one point lead at the top of the table with a 5-0 win away at the University of Exeter in a game delayed by problems with the arrival of the matchday referee.

WEDNESDAY 22nd AUGUST

SWP East: A busy night in the East Division with 10 of the 19 sides in action with most in local derby contests.

SWP East: Stoke Gabriel are top of the early season table after they moved onto 10 points from 4 outings with a narrow but important 1-0 win at home to Teignmouth in the East Divisions only Tuesday night fixture.

MONDAY 30th APRIL

SWP East: A busy night of six East Division matches with action at both ends of the table. At the very top, Newton Abbot Spurs completed their season with a 2-1 win away at Honiton Town which means Spurs finish with 77 points on the board and are assured of a top two finish. They will be Champions if St Martins fail to overhaul them with 4 games still to play, the Exminster based club will need at least 10 points and probably all 12 as the goal difference is in Spurs favour. At the opposite end of the table two results had a bearing. Liverton United climbed off the foot of the table with a 2-0 success away at 5th placed Crediton United whilst Galmpton & Roselands fall to bottom after they were beaten 4-0 away at an Alphington side who are almost certain now of avoiding finishing bottom themselves.

The maths are, if Spurs win at Honiton on Monday they will set a benchmark of 77 points and St Martins will be on 67 with 4 games to go, and with an inferior goal difference they will almost certainly have to win all 4 to grab the title. Elsewhere Ilfracombe Town carried on their strong end of season form with a 2-0 win at home to Alphington which lifts them a place to 4th whilst Bovey Tracey in 6th had a 4-2 win away at Honiton Town and the University of Exeter in 7th had a narrow 1-0 win at home to Appledore. Two sides further down the table also picked up wins with Sidmouth Town climbing a place after a 3-1 win at home to Galmpton & Roselands and bottom side Liverton United gave themselves hope of getting off the bottom with a 2-1 home win over Torridgeside which leaves the Halford based club just 2 points behind Galmpton.

FRIDAY 27th APRIL

SWP East: St Martins closed the gap on leaders Newton Spurs back to just 4 points with still two games in hand after a 3-1 win away at Crediton United in this weeks Friday night fixture.

THURSDAY 26th APRIL

SWP East: Newton Abbot Spurs came from behind to beat the University of Exeter 2-1 in their final home game of the season tonight with the win pushing them 7 points clear of title rivals St Martins.

SWP East: It was a case of the Late, Late Show today in more ways than one ! Leaders Newton Abbot Spurs were forced into a late kick off at Sidmouth Town as the match referee was double booked and was meant to be at both Brixham & Sidmouth – it’s the sort of crazy season where it was bound to happen to someone ! At least it all worked out though as a volunteer came forward and the game was played with Spurs maintaining the 4 point lead with a 2-0 victory.
