SATURDAY 23rd MARCH

SWP West: Leaders Liskeard Athletic moved 4 points clear at the top of the table today with a 3-1 win from the trip to Bude Town whilst 2nd placed Porthleven dropped precious points after being held to a 1-1 draw from their long trip to Holsworthy. With St Dennis the odd team out that allowed Mousehole to move up into 3rd place and they did so in good fashion with a 6-0 win at home to Wadebridge Town. Elsewhere Wendron United leap-frogged today’s opponents Plymstock United with a 3-2 win at Underlane. Penzance climbed a place after a 4-1 win at home to Plymouth Marjon. Ludgvan played their final away fixture of the season as they fell to a 3-0 defeat at Dobwalls and St Blazey also completed their travels for the season and signed off with a useful 3-1 win at Bere Alston United.

SATURDAY 16th MARCH

SWP West: The lead at the Top of the Division changed hands again today as this mornings leaders Porthleven were beaten 3-2 away at 3rd placed St Dennis in the top clash in the division. That allowed title favourites Liskeard Athletic to return to the top of the table although they were made to work hard for a 2-1 win away at Plymouth Marjon. Wendron United climbed a place to 7th after a 2-0 win at Underlane against visiting Bere Alston United whilst St Blazey picked up maximum points with a 6-2 win at Blaise Park against visitors Bude Town. One game ended all square with Plymstock United and Dobwalls ending goalless at Dean Cross. The Mousehole v Ludgvan fixture was called off late on after the visitors could not raise a side, Mousehole are awarded the win and Ludgvan deducted another three points, but the situation is not ideal, especially as Mousehole miss the chance of potentially improving their goal difference as they are not out of the title race.

SATURDAY 9th MARCH

SWP West: With the West Division having the fewest teams, and the mild winter helping things along, only 10 of the 15 West sides had scheduled matches today, but that didn’t stop a change at the summit as leaders Liskeard Athletic were knocked off top spot after they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Wadebridge Town. The new leaders are once again Porthleven who got back to winning ways with a 1-0 victory at Gala Parc over visitors St Blazey. Mousehole sit in 5th place but with games in hand on 3 of the 4 sides above them, remain contenders and they bounced back from last weeks Walter C Parson cup exit to be the highest winners today with a 6-0 victory over Holsworthy at Trungle Parc. Wendron United put their midweek Cornwall Senior Cup defeat behind them with a 3-1 win from the long trip to Bude Town with the 3 points lifting them two places in the table. Completing the day’s games were Dobwalls who picked up a useful 2-1 win from their trip down to Penzance.

WEDNESDAY 6TH MARCH

The Ashes will meet either Falmouth Town or St Austell in Easter Mondays final, but following the postponement of that semi final clash they will have to wait until the 19th March to know who they will line up against.

SATURDAY 2nd MARCH

SWP West: This mornings leaders, Porthleven, were knocked off top spot after they were beaten 3-1 away at a Bude Town side who are as low as 13th in the league table. Liskeard Athletic took full advantage as they returned to the top of the pile with a 2-1 win at home to Plymstock United which also saw them return to winning ways after last weekends first defeat of the season. St Dennis remain in third and had a 3-0 away win, which would normally be considered a very good day, but with the win coming at bottom of the table Ludgvan the narrowness of the margin will be a morale victory for the hosts who have conceded more than three in every game played since last September. Wadebridge Town in 4th place became the first team to complete their home games in the entire league today, but they were not able to sign off with a win as they were held to a 1-1 draw by lowly Bere Alston United. The only other victors today were Plymouth Marjon who had a 2-0 win from the short trip to Dobwalls whilst their were 1-1 draws at both Penzance who hosted Holsworthy and at Wendron United who entertained St Blazey.

Porthleven who were 2nd took full advantage with a 4-0 win away at Bere Alston United and they go back to the top of the table. Wadebridge were in 3rd place but were the odd side out this week and that allowed St Dennis to overtake them after a 3-0 win away at Holsworthy. Elsewhere Plymstock United remain in the Top 6 after a 2-0 win at home to Wendron United, Plymouth Marjon climbed two places after a 6-1 win away at bottom of the table Ludgvan, Penzance climbed a place with a 2-1 win at home to Bude Town and St Blazey picked up a much needed win with a 3-2 victory away at Dobwalls.

SATURDAY 16th FEBRUARY

SWP West: After the past two weeks were dominated by County Cups, today saw a full programme of seven league matches with only this mornings leaders, Porthleven, inactive as the odd team out. Liskeard Athletic duly took advantage to go back to the summit with a 3-0 win over Penzance at Lux Park but third placed Wadebridge Town failed to make any progress as they were beaten 1-5 at home by Dobwalls in a shock result. St Dennis stayed in touch with the leading group with a 4-2 win at home to Bere Alston United whilst Mousehole also remain in contention after a 5-1 win away at Plymouth Marjon.

SATURDAY 9th FEBRUARY

SWP West: With the Cornwall Charity Cup taking centre stage, and the postponement of the Bere Alston v Dobwalls league fixture, only one match was played in the West Division this week. That did not stop 3rd place Wadebridge Town from closing the gap on the leading pair in fine style though as the Bridgers romped to a 7-1 victory at home to Bude Town.

Cornwall Charity Cup: All four quarter finals were completed today with three West Division sides safely through to the Semi Finals. Penzance had a 2-1 victory away at high flying East Cornwall Premier Division outfit Polperro whilst St Dennis booked their place with a 4-0 win at home to local rivals St Blazey. Wendron United staged an emotional tribute to Kevin Williamson who passed away last weekend but the Underlane side were unable to follow up last weeks Senior Cup success as they went down 0-1 against visitors Liskeard Athletic. Porthleven who lost in the Senior Cup at Wendron last week, went out of the Charity Cup this week although they missed out on penalty kicks after a 2-2 draw with Combination league side Illogan RBL.

SATURDAY 2nd FEBRUARY

SWP West: Just one West Division fixture survived the winter weather but that match did allow St Blazey to pick up 3 much needed points in their quest for Step 6 football next season. The Blaise Park club edged a 3-2 victory over visiting Plymouth Marjon.

Mousehole remain in 5th place after a 5-0 win on the road at St Blazey. Lowly Bude Town had a 14-0 win at home to brave bottom side Ludgvan who thankfully have no longer journeys left to play. The pride of place for Bude, who climbed a place to 13th themselves, was Harry Hopcroft who hit a record breaking nine goals in a game, the first ever player to get a “hat-trick of hat-tricks” in a single game. Elsewhere Dobwalls and Wendron United picked up a point each from a 1-1 draw at Lantoom Park and the game between Bere Alston and Penzance will have to be played again as the match was abandoned at half time after the pitch became waterlogged.

SATURDAY 19th JANUARY

SWP West: Six of the seven scheduled games were completed today although Holsworthy v Plymstock United was a casualty of the recent wet weather. The days;s fixtures saw the Top 2 and the Bottom 2 each face each other. At the very top Liskeard Athletic won 2-1 at Porthleven to inflict a first home defeat of the season on the Gala Parc side and take over at the top of the table, with still 2 games in hand it makes Liskeard now the firm favourites in the division. At the opposite end of the table Ludgvan fared a bit better than last weeks record defeat but were still beaten 1-12 at home by visiting Bere Alston United. In-between top and bottom three more sides picked up wins with Mousehole climbing a place to 5th after a 2-0 at Bude Town, Plymouth Marjon got back to winning ways with a 1-0 win over Wendron United at The Campus and Penzance had a 5-2 win at home to St Blazey in a game that saw 6 of the goals scored in the opening half.

SWP West: Six league matches in the division produced an incredible 49 goals this afternoon! Leading the way and taking all the headlines are Liskeard Atthletic who racked up a 20-1 Win at home to bottom of the table Ludgvan. This was the largest ever West Division win since the league was formed 12 years ago and the second highest across all three divisions in the same time frame. Home striker James Lorenz also equalled the league record for most games in a single game by a player as he hit 8 goals himself, and he was already well clear in the divisions Golden Boot race! However Ludgvan must be given some credit for battling on and even at 20-0 down they finished the game with a consolation effort themselves. Liskeard remain 2 points behind leaders Porthleven as the Gala Parc side had a 6-0 win of their own as they beat Bude Town. Elsewhere Mousehole had what on most days would have been the days biggest win with an 8-0 victory over Bere Alston at Trungle Parc and there were 8 goals to at Deans Cross, but Plymstock United and Penzance shared them more evenly with Plymstock running out 5-3 victors.

The big winners today were Holsworthy who had a narrow 2-1 win away at a Bere Alston side that could loosely be described as a “derby” with the win lifting the Magpies up three places in the table to 6th spot. St Blazey didn’t climb from 12th place but they did have a back to back away win and clean-sheet as they followed up last weekends win at Ludgvan with a 2-0 win at Bude Town this afternoon.

Cornwall Senior Cup: 3 of the 4 West clubs involved in the County Cup progressed to the last 8 this afternoon with Wadebridge Town taking a Premier Division scalp as the Bodieve Park club beat Helston Athletic 2-1 after extra time to progress.

SWP West: The West season is finally up and running as St Blazey started the new season with a 6-0 win over visiting Ludgvan at Blaise Park in this opening Friday Night contest. The visiting Hurlers have had two managerial changes during the summer, so getting to play was in itself a good starting point, whilst St Blazey will be delighted to pick up the maximum points.
